He got assets for doing so. Go look at the trade list
Ewww, I really hope that's a Photoshopped picture.
I would not be surprised if he re-signs with the Jets as an UFA. It would be Fear and Loathing in Winnipeg, instead of Las Vegas. At least, on the Jets board.
Did you see what WIN gave us to pick Thornburn? Ennegeland was signed to a friendly deal and brought in as the local guy cause he lives in Vegas
Vegas made some weird picks imo.
I'm in the minority, but I'm quite pissed with what we gave up so you would take Thorburn. Rumour is McPhee was trying to shake down Chevy for Armia or else they would take Enstrom. Chevy should have called his bluff, and said fine, take Enstrom. He will just retire and go back to Sweden and you will get nothing from the Jets. At least with Dano you would get a young player with some upside who just doesn't seem to fit in here.
Enstrom to me is a declining asset who is injury prone. He's probably only here for a couple of years at most. Losing him would leave a hole at LD, but we've filled that hole before and could again. As is often pointed out on the Jets board, to the annoyance of some, the Jets have a better record with Enstrom out of the lineup than in it. Cue the Crosby response.
It was bad enough some meaningless late season wins pushed us out of prime draft territory. Now, we've fallen back even further and the names being bandied about at #24 really don't do anything for me. Who knows? Maybe there's more moves to be done, maybe there will be a surprise waiting for us at that spot. I'm not ready to jump off the cliff just yet, I'll just sit on the edge and enjoy the view for now.
Is McNabb the one Adrian Dater has a seething hatred for because he knocked out an Avs prospect?
Looks like Wild Bill is saying the right things:
Looks like he's committed to giving Vegas his best.
He's also got untapped potential.
Do you think he's got more potential to be a 2nd line C than Lindberg and Haula?
If he were still with the Jackets, I think his potential tops out at 3rd liner who puts up ~30 points.
If he gets top-6 minutes and time on the powerplay in Vegas, who knows? I guess we won't find out until we see it.
He's certainly going to get an opportunity on the Knights that he wouldn't get on the Jackets. Whether or not he seizes that opportunity is up to him.
Just looked back at my expansion draft lists from '98.
I'd bet at least half the guys chosen don't make the final roster in October.
Karlsson has shown signs he can in a few games, but then is invisible for long stretches. I'm not all that familiar with Haula, but Lindberg has more consistently shown offensive ability than Karlsson.
But Karlsson stepped up big time against the Pens, including this goal:
I was excited for the team, until they decided to screw over the Sens the most out of every other team.
Seriously, it feels like the Sens took the biggest hit when it came to the expansion draft.
That's on Dorion more than us.
If it makes you feel better, I'm a little frustrated GMGM didn't do to every other team what he did to the Sens.
CONGRATS to Vegas team and fans.. and welcome to the NHL..!
You guys have got a great player, with Leipsic...
Followed him for several seasons.., Marlies & Leafs...
Here's a few seasons of him to share with the new fans...
Enjoy.... and good luck with your 1st season..!
Let It Ride: Brendan Leipsic 2016-17 Highlights
Sweet, With Sticky: Brendan Leipsic 2015-16 Highlights
Leipsic Locked & Loaded: Brendan Leipsic 2014-15 Highlights
SEER videos are the best, they're the only hockey videos I don't mute. Everyone else seems to prefer awful techno crap.
Definitely the best player available (11):
Miller, Eakin, Marchessault, McNab, Emelin, Neal, Methot, Fleury, Schlemko, Perron, Schmidt
Established, meh (4):
Van Riemsdyk, Pickard, Garrison, Sbisa
Best player available, not established (2):
Definitely not the best player available (9):
Stoner, Carrier, Engelland, Brickley, Karlsson, Nosek, Berube, Haula, Thorburn
Reinhart, Merrill, Lindberg, Bellemare
Added today's draft picks to the OP.
Marc Andre Fleury wanted to give the Sens one last shiv. As nice as he may seem, he's only human.
As we wait for the playoffs (and the last three games), I thought it was a real laugh to look at this thread. Especially the reaction to guys like Karlsson.
Who's laughing now?
You're wasting your time. After spending the bulk of time between expansion draft and preseason complaining that this team was a massive failure for not doing better at the expansion draft/Foley+McPhee were liars RE: the playoffs in 3/cup in 6 plan he hasn't shown his face on this site since December.
Can we bury this thread please? While others were a lot worse than me, I made some pretty poor predictions haha.
I guess hindsight is 20/20. I doubt one person predicted 1st in the division.
This looks weird but it's my post-TDL roster. I would just like to point out Eakin was centering the 2nd line the other night.
Oh man if you would have told me Shipachyov would be gone and Karlsson was our 1st line C I would have said 'so the team is gonna be even worse than we thought'
Going through this old thread. I love comparing foresight with eventual results. Karlsson definitely didn't deserve 2d line this season
