While I agree with the idea of that I just don't see guys like Hickey and Pelech with huge upside potential. Leddy.. sure, Pulock.. of course, but those 2 are never going to be very good players.

Hey, I'm just guessing where they're thinking is at. I'm not saying I agree

Have to think he will be a Ranger. I'm not sure I give him that money. Isles might need to wait until Belmont to add that impact player.

It'd be a tough call. But just imagine a line of Panarin-Barzal-Bailey.

Yup. He's a hard ass that coaches defensively responsible hockey, which they're gonna have to play since no one other than McDavid, Nuge and Draisaitl can score.

Did not think Hitch would want to coach again. Hitch can coach D.

Anything would be better than "Lucic is a top 6 LW" McLellan.

Seems many think Chia should have been the one to go.

GM get a lot more rope than coaches. I would not mind seeing more turnover among the GM's.

This isn't going to happen, just going to get out ahead of Vukota on that one, but I would kill to find a way to pry O'Reilly away from the Blues. They gotta be getting set up for a retool and they have some serious cap issues. $7.5M off their cap would help them and would give the Isles an extremely reasonably priced 2nd line center that plays excellent defense.

It's something to think about. Isles will need to go the trade route for the 2C as there seems to be no C in the system at the moment and signing a 2C is very unlikely.

$7.5M for this season plus 4 more is damn good value and he's only 27 (28 in Feb). I'd take that kind of guaranteed center depth for the next 4.5 years and run.

Probably wouldn't come cheap though.
BINGO!

He should have been fired the moment he brought the Hall trade to Katz et al. for approval.

It's going to be a very interesting deadline and offseason for the Isles. Hope it's a better one than this last offseason.
