Maurice's shelf life in Winnipeg may be coming to an end. Jets aren't going to side with Maurice over Laine, and if they did, that would be really dumb. Byfuglien and Wheeler's shelf life diminishes b

Yes but he's not Ovechkin. He's not tough and gritty enough, and doesn't have the Ovechkin skillset and shot he has while he was his age. Laine isn't a bust by any mean. He would be a 1st choice

Goalie Bob is overrated, Stralman, Yandle, Eckblad is gonna get caved in, Stralman is aging out, neither Yandle nor Eckblad actually play defense. Up front they're not that talented, basically a

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.

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.

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.

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
