    Forgot how brutal Shinkaruk's career has been. 24OA pick in 2013 and has 1 NHL GP with 0 points. I remember some on here really wanting Shinkaruk but instead we took one Andre Burakovsky. 2013 was a terrible draft outside of like 8-10 players.

    Spoke about it in another thread, but there really were only like 5 guys drafted after Burakovsky in the entire 2013 draft that turned out better.

    Which five are better? Shea Theodore and Jake Guentzel are really the only ones I can think of from that draft who I'd take over Burky at this point.

    Brett Pesce definitely.
    Tyler Bertuzzi, Oliver Bjorkstrand, and Pavel Buchnevich aren't clear cut yet, but all had much stronger 2018-19 seasons than Burky.
    Anthony Duclair is kinda a push with Burakovsky at this point. Potential there, but consistency not.

    Ummm...really? Can't see Gersich not being in the top 6 nor O'Brien not being in the top 9. And Johansen as an extra D? And Copley in Hershey with a $1 million salary?

    Bears sign another LD. Even more depth and I'd assume he's SC bound to start. Got into 43 games for Binghamton last year. Big bodied dman

    This was the kid who suffered the gruesome ankle injury in the frozen four a few years back. He's a pretty physical guy if I remember him right.

    That popped into my mind as well. I'd assume though that Washington would want their prospects playing ahead of him though. The one advantage Hershey/SC does have with AHL deals is that if the player gets sent to SC they are living in Charleston as opposed to say Wilkesbarre who sends their guys to Wheeling, West Virginia.

    Wheeling is a nice little city. I’ve never had to live there, but I’ve stopped through on a couple road trips to the Midwest, but it was perfectly pleasant.

    I've never been there but Paul Bissonnette always talks about his time in Wheeling on Spittin Chiclets and it doesn't sound very appealing. I'd assume hockey players would prefer Charleston if given the opportunity

    Yeah, Charleston would be a city NHL players would be happy to live. It's not even close to any other ECHL cities.

    Charleston is the only southern city I would be willing to live at.

    Just coming to post this. Great move for Hershey. One more guy signed off that free agent list above would be great. Maybe a two way type guy who can play wing and center

    Matt Moulson has pocketed ~$40mm (pre-tax) over the course of his hockey career. Dude must love the game because it certainly seems like he doesn't need the money and he doesn't need to be sitting on busses playing in AHL arenas at 35 years old.

    Great signing for the Bears. They should be a ton of fun to watch this year.
