    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    2018 NHL Offseason Thread- RMNB except in cases of Domestic Violence or Backloaded Contracts

    Offseason thread.

    Grats to the Caps once again on their cup victory.

    In other news relating to Russians, Voynov is seeking to return to the NHL and is trying to have his domestic violence convictions dismissed.

    And Kovalchuk has been visiting teams to see if any are willing to sign him.

    So if OEL gets 8.25mil or whatever it is per year, what do you guys think Carlsson is going to want? Or Doughty next year.

    If OEL gets an 8m/8yr contract, then I think Doughty and Karlsson each get a $9.5m-$10.5m AAV contract. Have no idea what the length would be. Best guess is 6-8 years. I'm gauging this off of PK's contract as well (9m/8yr AAV).

    It's a pipe dream but I'm hoping the Caps make a move for EK instead of re-signing Carlson. I love John but he is gonna be way overpriced and I'd rather pay EK 10-12m aav instead of John 9-11m.

    I think with Grubauer and/or Burakovsky, plus some picks or another prospect, we should have enough to get EK, without killing ourselves. I love Bura also, and think he will be a very good Top6 guy once he stays healthy and stops being bounced around the lineup, but I'm willing to give him up for EK.

    A ton of teams seem to be interested in Gruuby, so we might deal him off somewhere else, and we could use those picks/prospects to get EK as well. CAR, DET and NYI are the places I have heard inquiring about Gru the most. CAR and Faulk could be a solid third option if EK is out of reach and Carlson is too much.

    Stanley Cup Champion Tom Wilson, Kempny and Beagle are the other 3 guys we need to focus on. Tom is an RFA so that's just a raise but Beagle might be gone if someone pays too much and Kempny just played an amazing couple rounds in the playoffs so he might get over priced as well. If Brooks retires or we can dump him in a trade, then it makes things a heck of a lot easier too.

    I like the Sens (less and less as time goes on) but I cannot wait until they get that new arena downtown and continue to put up pathetic attendance numbers. The arena location is not the problem. The Phoenix Pay system bullshit is not the problem. The team is bad, and Senators fans are few and far between. The ones that do exist just don't want to admit any of it.

    Not a whole lot of injury reports have come out this playoffs compared to other years (people expected to find out Malkin, Kessel, and a million other players were gravely injured when the Caps beat them)...

    but Nick Backstrom had 2 fractures in his index finger, sustained in the PIT series and Orpik had part of his pinky cut off from the Haula slash after the final whistle of G2 in the SCF (finger was re-attached and he missed no time).

    Lol the kings get Peter budaj back from tampa for andy andreoff. I find it funny cause the kings traded him to tampa for a pick or two I think. And after he saved the kings season when quick got injured.

    Budaj isn't even expected to be the back-up. He's going to Ontario and play back-up there. He still has roots in the LA area and is well liked by the Reign org and fans.

    DSP is an RFA as well. Kempny was solid for us, I hope we re-sign him

    Suddenly a lot of #MaxPacioretty talk after Galchenyuk move. I’d keep an eye on #FLAPanthers

    2016 offseason: Lars Eller for Andrew Shaw
    Fanbase: "What a fucking terrible trade"
    Bergevin: "lol hold my beer"



    Trades PK Subban for Shea Weber...the trade is 1 for 1.



    Bergevin: "wait, hold my beer"

    2017 offseason: Trades Sergachev for Drouin in hopes of getting a french canadian #1C...Drouin hadnt played center since junior and thus failed, and created a gaping hole in top pairing LHD. The trade was 1 for 1.



    Bergevin: "hold my beer, again"

    2018 offseason: Trades Galchenyuk, a #1C that the team needs but refuses to play because "he cant play center", for Max Domi...a left winger. So Bergevin didnt address the center issue but got us another left winger, alongside Pacioretty, Carr, Hudon, Lehkonen, Byron.

    @frank_seravalli
    Max Domi: 36 goals in 222 career #NHL games.
    Alex Galchenyuk: 30 goals in 2015-16 season.

    tbh, Domi's 9 goals to Alex's 19 last year isn't a fair comparison.

    Domi had 4 ENGs so it's more like 5 to 18 (Chucky had 1).

    If you fantasy hockey it up and subtract Chucky's 19 goals from the 207 the Habs scored last year, then add Domi's 9, were dead last in the league with 197 goals for. Buffalo scored 198.

    And Bergevin traded away one of our top goal scorers and probably the player with the most raw talent for grit and toughness.


    And the worst part is I'm not even surprised. Pissed off, yes...but not surprised.
