    My list was similar but would replace Bratt with Bastian and Severson with Murray.

    Devils would only lose one of the two.

    Think there are plenty of candidates that could replace Bratt in the pipeline and for the salary he receives Severson is simply not consistent enough defensively.

    A quintet of Murray, Subban, Bahl, Smith and Siegenthaler is a good start and a targeted addition or one of the other young prospects would be stronger than what the Devils had most of this season.

    Has Francis tipped his hand to whether he feels the team can be competitive out of the gate like Vegas?

    He doesn't have a single player so far and doesn't fully know which ones will be available.

    Though, he said he hopes so....

    Wasn't meant to be a taking a shot at you or something.

    BTW: To answer another part of your question.
    Comparing it to Vegas makes no sense.
    Even Vegas didn't know they'd be anywhere near as successful as they've become and teams had way more time to structure their contracts.

    I also could see us going younger given the way the unprotected lists most likely will look like.

    How is that condescending? Reads more like a clarification.

    We all know Seattle has no players yet, didn't really need to be stated.

    I think younger is the way to go. I'm not sure we're going to see the kind of monumental f*** up like the Panthers giving away Marchessault & Reilly, or the Ducks giving away Theodore to rid themselves of Stoner, or Tuch and Haula to protect Dumba.

    I think we re going to see a couple vets with little term left taken with decent cap hits that Seattle can gain assets with at the deadline. Giordano as we previously discussed.

    Kinda condescending to assume that isn't it? After all, comparing to Vegas' timeline, it would have been a very real possibility that Seattle could have signed a couple free agents by now. There was absolutely nothing wrong with RainyCityHockey's post, unless you're intentionally looking for reasons to be offended.

    If them and I have a misunderstanding, why is it up to you and others to interfere? I explained why I thought it was condescending, then I moved on. Maybe you should too.

    If you didn't want any "interference" then perhaps you should have sent him a dm instead of crying about it on a public discussion forum. Instead you tried to call him out to make him look bad or feel bad or whatever reason you felt the need to publicly show your butt hurt, so yeah I chimed in to make sure you know that you're the one being the jerk here.

    Actually you're the only one being a jerk, saying something to someone for a perceived slight isn't crying, he said that wasn't his intention, I said why I thought it was and moved on. Then here you come riding in with your tinfoil armor and now you're insulting me.

    I'm pretty sure it's going to be some kind of a mix but will probably end up on the younger side given the way teams have been able to structure their rosters(thanks to having 2 1/2 years of time instead of just one year with Vegas) and with us going pretty heavy on the analytics side of things.

    What I don't fully agree with is us taking guys to flip them at the deadline, like Giordano.
    I think those higher cap hits will most likely be for players of teams that are willing to do a side deal with us.

    Also, I'm not fully expecting it, but I wouldn't count too much on GM's being completely rational, having learned their lesson and none of them panicking, because a certain number of them are usually doing something stupid anyways.

    BTW: What do you think about the way the team wants to hold the expansion draft, like I've posted on the previous page?

    I think it sounds like it could be a great event, that would be so much better under different circumstances. Bruckheimer's connections could really lead to a level of entertainment the NHL has never had access to before too. But, I've never actually been to Seattle, so most of the places mentioned are just places I've heard of and seen pics of before. I do love the inclusion of Oregon, that is just smart.

    I do know I'll be watching for sure.

    I hope there are a lot of Scouts watching Jonathan Dahlen from Timra against Bjorkloven. Going into the 3rd period Dahlen has a goal and an assist

    Dahlen is the player I had ticketed from the San Jose Sharks to the Expansion Seattle Kraken from the very start of the year and even before

    Is a Portland "Rosebuds" Expansion team far behind?

    Doubtful with the WHL Winterhawks here. Portland is trying to get an MLB team. I don't think there is enough support for pro hockey with the NBA and MLS here already. I've only been here two years though, so I may be wrong. Seems Seattle already has the Oregon footprint too.

    I hope to be able to attend the expansion draft at one of these sites

    Looks like all major local venues should be available for this since Mariners & Sounders are both out of town that week. Something like T-Mobile Park & Seattle Center (Memorial Stadium?) as the main 2 sites and then small groups at Pike Place, Mt Rainier, Snoqualmie Falls, Alki Beach, Gasworks Park, Grand Coulee Dam, etc

    Yeah, sadly I think the proverbial ship has sailed for a NHL team in Portland. The best we can hope for is a preseason exhibition game played at the Moda Center to drum up regional enthusiasm. PDX is a low-key hockey town (I see tons of NHL team gear all over) so it’d be a slam dunk opportunity for regional engagement.

    I think the best chance Portland had was when the Coyotes were in the thick of their arena problems and were trying to sell. Paul Allen considered buying them, but it didn't happen.

    I do think NHL would be successful in Portland, but I don't think that happens any time soon, largely because of the Kraken. If somebody out west were to move, I'd imagine Portland would be near the tip top of the list.

    If they do Deception Pass I may just show up. That being said, I am still trying to steer away from crowded places.
