They both looked good at the Hlinka, so did Jamie Drysdale.

The Swedes looked as advertised, Holtz and Raymond

The Russians looked good too, particularly Askarov,.

Any late first round steals for the Leafs West and Avs East to take advantage of?

Kaiden Guhle from Prince Albert, Daniil Guschin from Muskegeon, Kasper Simontaival from Tamppara in the Liga,  Rodion Amirov from Russia.

Because of the Russian factor and the goalie factor Askarov might fall and be available late first/early second, although since he stone cold stopped Canada in their tracks, his stock has probably gone up since the Hlinka.

Rumor has it Jets sniper Patrik Laine may be a holdout at camp, and is unhappy in Winnipeg.

All the big name RFA's are holding out together, they are all waiting for Marner to set the market by forcing the Leafs to give him Matthews money.

It's not that they want to be traded, they just realize that NHL careers are quickly over after thirty years of age now,  so they won't get paid for what they did as it used to be, if they want to get paid now, they have to get paid for what they are going to do, because the big earnings window is no longer after 30 years of age, the big earnings window is  now 22-28 years of age, and they want short contracts too, so they can get another big one at 28.

Avs sign Nichushkin? Random flyer on a Russian bust, like when they signed Yakupov.

Dallas with two bad busts, Honka at 14th overall, Nichushkin at 10th overall

What are the Avs even going to do with him? I don't get it.

Yeah, not sure what they see there, it's only $850K, it's not the Leafs tho, I don't think the Avs are so apt to bury guys in the minors like it ain't no thang, so they probably intend him to play in the NHL

Where? I don't see a roster spot for him, he's basically competing for the 13th forward spot with Kamanev, he's like the 14th forward.

Makes no sense, we have no room for him unless we are burying him in the AHL. Very strange.

Yeah, that one's weird, I don't see the upside, he's a 2013 daft pick, it's not like he's gonna break out, six years into being a bust.

Well at least it's only a one-year deal, with an irrelevant cap hit.

Jake Gardiner signs with Carolina, 4 x 4.05, pretty much exactly what he has been making for the last 6 years.

That's an odd signing for Carolina, since they are stocked with D already,

Indeed, but as a team stocked with D, they are better equipped than most teams to help cover for Gardiner's weaknesses.

Heard he's been a bust.

Maybe he's an undervalued asset who they might be dumb enough to part with for cheap, he looked pretty good against the Marlies in the Calder Cup playoffs.

What I note from the prospects tournament was that the clear standouts were;

Justin Brazeau, who scored a lot in junior but lacks elite skating, will be useful to the Marlies certainly, NHL ceiling projects as 4th line depth forward.

Then it was the 29th overall pick Nick Robertson, Dubstep sleeper pick, NHL projection top 6 winger.

Then Hockey Hunter Genius 31st overall pick Yegor Korshkov.   Who I call Yeager Korshkov ftw.

Werenski signed with CBJ for 3 years $5M a year.

Good signature for both parties.

The RFA's are starting to break ranks, not waiting for Marner,

Team friendly bridge, third  year is at $7 million AAV which means he must be qualified for at least that as an RFA only one year away from UFA

Sam Girard money for three years, what a steal for Columbus. Unfortunately for them they don't get any UFA years locked up, but that's very fortunate for Werenski.
