    I would trade Johnson and Miller if possible. Miller had good chemistry with the top 2 in the regular season and would be a good 50+ points but this playoff shows he's not that important. Same for Johnson, he's been producing ok in the regular season but these playoffs he hasn't been his usual self and I think we could move on from him and not be hurt too bad. We have some guys who are close to stepping into a top 9 role and we would save 10mil in the process. I would consider moving both if possible. I'd do Killorn too but the market might not be as good.

    I could see Coburn being in a similar situation as Brewer was with us next season. The odd man out that nets us a 3rd / 4th rounder. That's only because Sustr steps out of his shell and because a top pairing dman for us.. I kid I kid.. well about that last part.

    I hope Cernak is on the team next year, think he'd pair well Sergachev

    Unless we get a late 1st for Coburn I see no reason to move him. His contract ends when we need it to and allows one of Masin, Cernak and Foote another year of development. The other thing is he's a proven playoff performer. No matter how good Cernak or any of the other kids look we will most likely be looking to add a depth veteran defender at the deadline. With Coburn we don't need to do that and save ourselves some assets later in the year.

    Hedman-Sergachev was dynamic in the playoffs. Run with that imo.

    Hedman-Sergachev
    McDonagh-Stralman
    Koekkoek-Girardi

    Flip Coburn for a pick.

    Or you know keep Coburn, have him rotate with Koekkoek and Girardi, be ready in case of injury, all while not having to go out and buy a rental at the deadline.

    Cap space>injury insurance

    We can easily sign a depth ufa who won’t cost almost 4 mil

    Who? Which UFA will we get that'll sign for 1 year who'll be better? We don't need the capspace either.

    He doesn’t have to be better. Won’t be hard to find a random ufa dman who will sign a 1-2 year 1-2 mil per deal.

    We have four defensemen with contracts coming off the books next year, which allows us to pick and choose who comes back, depending on any prospects who can break into our lineup next season. It's not a bad spot to be in.

    We don't need to actively create cap-space right now.

    Why would we target a worse player? Unless we get a big return for Coburn, which we won't, it makes no sense to downgrade for less than 2mil in savings. Koekkoek isn't even better than him yet so it's not like we aren't losing anything giving him the job.

    Cant imagine the put a rookie and a sophomore together, but in a few years they will be a monster pairing. Thoight cernak was more impressive at the rookie camp.

    Yeah, don't see them being being paired together yet, just a great complimentary duo in a couple of years.

    Not sure how to interpret this. Is this limited to 1st and 2nd round prospects? I would think that they would do their due diligence regardless of what picks we hold.

    The combine is only like 100 players.

    Combine day isn't normally going to hugely sway a team one way or another, and if someone really screws up at the interviews, everyone will hear about it anyway. Everyone's long done research on the top guys leading up to Dallas.

    TB may also not want teams meme'ing that they're looking to move up because they're talking to guys that'll be gone in the first 50 picks.

    See, I think when you're dealing with kids at this age, the interview means a lot more than many people value it. We've had success with high-motor kids (Cirelli, Kucherov) and problems with talented but immature players (Drouin, DeAngelo). Even if we're not going to move up it's worth our time. Columbus had a really good interview with Seth Jones in 2013 even though they weren't in a position to draft him, and then traded for him 3 years later.

    I don't know how TB allotted their time, but the top prospects (like Jones, Drouin, and DeAngelo) were well known quantities. It's the guys down the rankings that need the attention to find those motor players like Kuch and Cirelli.

    It's a picture, it's not going either direction.
