I think a pretty large chunk of things either have, or will, be done by the time the draft is over. I'm sure Lou wants to knock out getting a goaltender brought in and would want to use 2018 draft picks (since we have so many) to take care of that. The coaching situation may be able to be solved in the next few days. Tavares will be resolved by no later than 11:59pm on June 30th.

There will obviously be some work to be done in free agency and hopefully he's able to purge some of the overpaid dogshit off the roster...but all the important things should be taken care of in the next week or so.

I'm not sure how he'll pull that off. Maybe you can sucker another GM on Mayfield or possibly Cizikas. Clutter and Ladd are here to stay.

I am hoping for some moves on draft day. Mainly because I want some of the questions answered as soon as possible but also because I am wary of free agency. IMO pretty much every FA gets signed to a bad contract. If the team were one player away from the Cup then I'd be on board, but there are a number of holes right now. Plus there are already too many bad contracts on the roster.

I really hope the coaching decision doen't drag on. It would be great to front office set and get everyone on the same page.

Carlson is the guy to pony up for if you're gonna do it assuming you could afford him and the isles probably cant

He got Dion Phaneuf and his awful deal traded out of Toronto. I'm confident he can do something here. Maybe not immediately, but if you can move Phaneuf and that deal...you can move most guys.

I'm more than willing to give Lou a fair shot at doing thing right. Between the simple fact that he isn't Garth Snow and the fact that he got rid of the dead weight (no pun intended)...he's earned my trust for quite awhile. Obviously he's not perfect and there will be mistakes, but for now...I'll let the man work and just sit back and enjoy it.

I hope you're right but I think an offer of Ladd and a first for a bag of pucks still gets rejected. Even if Ladd would agree to the trade.

That too. He's definitely creative and he brought his capologist along with him, in Pellegrini.

I don't see Ladd going anywhere. Dipshit Snow gave him a full NMC and I can't imagine he'd waive it. Maybe there's something with the Canucks, since he's from BC, but I would imagine we'd have to add so much to that trade that it would be prohibitive.

But if he can get rid of Clutterbuck and Mayfield, that's almost $5M right there saved...which is nearly the cost of Ladd's cap hit.

- eichiefs9


I can see him being able to move Mayfield because he's only 25 and a big guy. While he's overpaid it's still not a tremendous cap hit. Clutter's contract is facking horrible in price and duration. I think we're stuck with him.

I think Mayfield is a candidate to get moved to a crap team, somewhere that has trouble signing guys. He's dirt cheap and controlled for 5 years.

You may be, and probably are, right about Clutterbuck. Not saying it'll be easy to move him, but it's not impossible. Despite the fact that he sucks and has a bad deal, $3.5M isn't so expensive that something couldn't be worked out. Isles could retain $1M or so to facilitate a deal and not have to add crazy assets to make it happen.

I hadn't even thought about that. What are the cap rules for retaining salary? Would that clear $2.5 shmil for them to spend? I'd hate to pay a player not on the team, but for another $2.5 in cap space it may be worth it.

Barzal thanks the Seidenberg's. Maybe he's afraid of being kicked out.
