    Well I mean, in that world where Columbus doesn’t take Dubois and the trade goes through, we suddenly have our top-2 centres for the next decade+ with that one deal, we have no franchise RHD but we’re solid on the left side.

    It’s just interesting to ponder and think of the “what if?” in this scenario where Edmonton doesn’t get their hands on Puljujarvi, Columbus doesn’t take Dubois #3 and the trade happens.

    But ... but ... they're going to be offer-sheeting this year!

    And several picks are available for trade! (subject to a list of impossible to meet conditions, as per usual)

    And some teams will trade at the draft so as not to risk losing a key asset at the expansion draft!

    Oh, and the cap is going to settle at $82M and too many teams are in cap trouble!

    And picks 15-50 could be interchanged, there is so much volatility!

    Hudon -- draft day trade bait!!! (will any GM even notice?)

    Bergevin is going to move up (Boldy!)! No, he's going to move down (Lassi! Poulin!) Oh wait ... he's trading it for a first rounder next year cause the draft is being held in Montreal!!!

    Don't forget the highly imaginative and poignant preambles from the podium!!!

    We'd like to congratulate the St-Louis Blues on winning the Stanley Cup. Also we'd like to thank the city of Vancouver for their hospitality. Finally, we're all millionaires and billionaires, we can buy the same type of hospitality in any city we visit.

    When the Oil pick, I'm going to have a chart next to my TV set to check out how much the owner's son has grown!

    Oh, don't forget the draft day drinking game!

    And booing Gary!!!

    So much fun, I tells ya!!!!

    7 millions today is the same "cap money" (roughly 9% of the cap) as 5 millions 9 years ago . That's just how it work.

    Habs are paying Weber 6 milion in actual salary this season ...Nashville is paying Subban 10 million cash

    If Subban is on the block already(after 3 seasons ) in Nashville, what does that say...

    Thx for posting this
    People need to understand that the average salary is close to 4 million now.
    The cap increases so do salaries

    Nothing to do with what the Habs did with Galchenyuk as the latter did a lot of stuff to himself and has a toxic family problem that is well documented. He remains a supremely talented player that allowed the Habs to fetch Domi.

    Galchenyuk never reached the depths that Pulju is at. The Oil is willing to take a third liner for him? This is not a developmental issue at this point. If it were, the Oil would be asking for a lot more and blame it all on how he was handled.

    Give money to Superstars, the ones that make you win Championships and attract people in the stands. Is Hayes that kind of player ?

    What would also be interesting to find out is what kind of player you got for $5 million 9 years ago. Has there been a linear distribution of the cap money or are the better players grabbing a bigger piece of the pie today?

    In baseball, basketball and football, they give the big money to superstars, not average players.

    We'll never know. Doing hypotheticals can lead to a lot of outcomes.

    Dubas is new on the job. We can chalk this up to ignorance. He will soon learn that MB has dibs on the unexpected.

    Sorry. You’re wrong. MLB, NFL and NBA Throw money out like it’s going out of style.
    Bench players in the NBA make 8-10 million
    NFL free agency was the most expensive ever and not one superstar was available
    MLB. Macahdo and Harper 300 million???
    Cmon man
    Randal Grichuk 50 million for proving nothing.

    Well, nothing against the Oilers means nothing against the organization. Not going to return to Edmonton means that the issue is with the city. ;)

    Damn... That's a great deal for the Nucks, exactly what I'd have loved to see us sign him to
