    I'm not sure he's going to be qualified. And if he is, he won't garner much in a trade at full money.

    If we can get him for a 3rd or less, and he’ll sign a contract that’s moveable, I’d consider it. Though, I’d like a RW. He’s been a LW almost exclusively in the nhl, iirc.

    I'm fine with Nash. To a lesser extent Vanek, too. I think Nash will find better offers than a one or two year deal.

    I'd be thrilled with a Neal or even Perron.

    I'd even look for Brodziak, Wingels, Letestu type guys in free agency. They are right shots, PK, can play at C or wing. Responsible, and can eat 12+ minutes a game.

    I do think that they key to that prolonged success in the NHL comes down to having a couple of elite guys in key positions and surrounding them with good players that can be made to play better with the talent they skate with. With they Yotes... I'll take whatever it is to be a contending team for a decent period of time.

    Also agree that Chayka and Co. have been much better. So I'd be more willing to work with the idea under their leadership.

    It won't take all that to get Coyle from the Wild. Read their boards and look at Coyle's production. He's declining. His numbers still show a 40 pt player, but his much needed physicality for a player his size is gone. He plays so soft in the corners now, doesn't hustle. Hard pass on Coyle, he'd be a big disappointment. Think opposite of Tkachuk.

    Did anyone watch the WC game today? I haven’t seen it, but I’m reading Hughes looked very good. He even out-muscled horvat, for what it’s worth

    On his podcast, Bob McKenzie seems to think Carolina could move 2 OV, given the owner is pulling some strings and Dudley has a history of moving down from high picks.

    Every year we hear that the top 3-5 picks may be available for trade. When's the last time one of those actually moved? 2003?

    Fair enough. I didn't think he had regressed that much, but I guess I have to take the MIN fans at face value on that one.

    True, but the Hurricanes are a total wildcard right now.

    Eh, either Svechnikov or Zadina could be exactly what that team needs. They have the blueline, they just need the forwards now.

    They want to get tough, right? Crouse and Domi for Svechnikov is totally fair. ;)

    RW - Coyle, Zucker, Silfverberg, Simmonds, Reinhart, Hartman, C. Smith. Any of them will make our team better.

    That's what I don't get about Carolina. They have an opportunity to draft a game changing forward.....which is exactly what they need. Why move the pick????

    It's Dudley. He has earned a reputation of moving his first round pick.

    He looked great throughout the tourney. Our boy Wahlstrom blew an excellent opportunity to tie in the final seconds, off a GREAT Hughes feed.

    Jack Hughes was great throughout the U18 tournament. His older brother Quinn is currently playing in the men's world championship. Quinn is draft eligible and is in the mix for the Coyotes pick this year. Jack will go first overall to the lottery winner (us) next year.

    I understand and was under the impression he was asking about Jack - WC being World CHAMIONSIP?
    Oh and you're dreaming - but I like it! :)

    That was Dudley. He traded a top 5 pick in 3 of 5 years.
