    A bidding war between Preds Flames and Sharks would be nice for Simmer.

    Also the Bruins pushing around the Leafs Tomm night would be very ideal as well.

    We’re likely getting a 1st+ from somebody for Simmonds regardless.

    Is Berglund planning to play in the NHL again?

    Watching a lot of college and junior hockey today and I’ve seen some enormous open ice hits. Decleaters. NHL players are so good at not making themselves vulnerable for such hits.

    The Lightning might fizzle in the second half, like they did last season (by 44 games in 2017-2018 they were at a 0.734 PTS% and finished with a 0.689 PTS%). Still, they could go 10-20-8 for the remainder of the season and probably make the playoffs. That's a PTS% of 0.368, which I think is worse than any team has performed over 38 games this season. Hilarious...

    I wonder what McDavid would be able to do on that team.

    McDavid would break that bank on Toronto or Tampa. Think he's pretty close to Gretzky/Lemieux as the most dominant offensive player.

    10,000 stats per game that could fundamentally change how we watch it.....

    Post the players +/- over their heads....

    I didn't know Tuch was close to PPG. He was never on my radar whatsoever

    I wanted Tuch at the draft, thought he was the type of winger we were lacking.

    He is. He's fantastic. The Knights got off to a slowish start early in the season and his emergence really kinda kept them afloat while the big names struggled a bit.

    I feel like Ek and Panarin get a lot of coverage here, and don't get me wrong, I would like either of them, but am I the only one that wants Stone more than either? He could be a good winger for a center like Frost next year.

    Stone's really good. I prefer the other two, but he is definitely someone worth getting excited about.

    1. Karlsson
    2. Panarin
    3. Stone

    Would be my wishlist. After those 3 I'm less enthused, but still some good players potentially available. Hopefully most make it to July 1. Could be the rare free agency period where it is wise to break the bank.

    4. Duchene (good player, seems like a dick though)
    5. Skinner
    6. Nyquist
    7. Hayes
    8. Pavelski
    9. Lee
    10. Donskoi

    Something like that. I didn't give much thought to the order. Staal's a UFA too. Will Fletch try his luck again?

    The summer UFA crop is shaping up to be one of the best in years and we will have a ton of cap space. Good timing.

    I would love to have Skinner on this team. Skinner on Giroux's wing? yes please.
    I dont think Panarin gets to the open market. IMO

    I've always been a big fan of Skinner. Very exciting player when he's healthy.

    Buffalo got him practically for nothing and it looks like Hextall didn't even bother trying to get him on our team...

    We should have traded for Skinner in the summer and extended him already.

    Why? He has the best odds of making it to July 1 imo.

    and we have a gm that wants to go in, it's going to be an exciting offseason that's for sure.

    Not putting down Ekholm, he''s a good LH defenseman but why give up something to get him in the off season? If the Flyers are going to go for a defenseman in the summer, get the Lightning's Strahlman as a FA. He's a righty and could play top pair with Provorv

    Ugh. Seems like an excessive use of Computer Vision to watch a game. Has technology really improved the game? I don't think so. All of the game reviews really make the game tempo slow down and boring.
