    He's non-exempt, the cutoff is three pro seasons in North America and he played last year, this year and will play next year. Same deal as Dahlin.

    It'd certainly be better if he was given a free pass, but that painful decision (whatever it is) is unavoidable when you cash an expansion team's big check. It will be fun to watch 29 other teams suffer through it, at least.

    We're probably gonna lose a good defender at the expansion draft. Or we're gonna have to pay Seattle to take a player we're OK with losing.

    Trying to not get too excited, but man this kid has looked really good. I know he and Scandella are playing 3rd pairing minutes, but if Krueger wanted to reduce Ristolainen's ice time by 3 minutes (which I think he should 25+ is way too much for Risto) I'd be comfortable giving those minutes to this paring.

    At least that is what the eye test tells me I'm sure some advanced stat guy will tell me I'm nuts.

    What a ****ing pickup Joker is. The nickname alone is 10/10, and then steps on the ice...

    A good D is almost certainly gone. Luckily they’ve been investing heavy in the position and will have replacements in the pipeline.

    Sure was joy to see last night.
    One mustake cost a goal but other ways jyst so high iq stuff with good skating and stuck play.
    He seems to have potential on attack also. Last night was few times well on rush but sadly was not seen by forward.

    Nice pick at 29 spot by Hawks.

    I think it’s not very convenient for him to play on the left side.

    With Dahlin out and Risto not distributing that well since resuming point duties... Joker is getting a shot on PP1:
