I mean sure I've been running 4 D for pretty much the whole season because my guys weren't getting called up. So I go out and make a huge splash.

And then one of those D gets called up.

Pirri soon as well?

Anyone else want my prospects? Seems like they never get called up until I trade them.

Go Guhle!

I doubt Pirri ever gets recalled - he's a Golden Knight isn't he? Unless there's an injury, he'll be an AHL all-star until next season or he gets traded.

I wasn't as down on them as some were after the draft though.


This is the one parallel I was actually thinking about.

One thing different about this Vegas team is they're a top to bottom team full of 2nd/3rd line and 2nd pairing options (something I didn't see in the players they drafted). That's one thing most teams don't have. A 3rd/4th line that can score or a 3rd pairing that plays like a 2nd pairing. Those match-ups add up over a game.

Could be a one-off season though.

More important question: if you're Vegas, do you still sell some pieces at the deadline on the assumption that rebuilding is still the right play? Or do you try to make a dent in the playoffs and even try to land 1-2 pieces for a run?

If I'm Vegas, I hold. Don't see, don't buy. Who knows if this is just the first year of a group of cast-offs playing off adrenaline and to prove their former teams wrong.

They still have plenty of picks, made a lot of picks last year, etc. They'll likely let Neal and Perron walk which will naturally create holes for them to take a step back next season. Depending on their playoff success I'm curious to see how they approach the offseason assuming they allow Neal/Perron to walk. Do they attempt to sign big name players? I mean, let's say they go out in 7 games in round 2. That's a success. Do they attract UFA's?

Let's be honest, a tandem of Fleury and Subban is actually really good. Their defence is young and looks pretty solid. Guys like Smith and Marchessault had success in Florida and elsewhere, not like this obviously but they weren't scrubs, Karlsson came a bit out of nowhere but was never given a chance in Columbus. Neal and Perron have shown offensive ability before and Neal has hit 20+ goals every season of his career so he's not a surprise either.

I don't think they are second in the NHL like their current point total might say, but I do think they have been underestimated and underrated. The lines developed instant chemistry and by having a 1a/1b line with a solid third line they have become tough to matchup against.

Only right play here is to stand pat imo. Firstly, they have a small amount of prospects as is, selling what they have will look terrible if they have a mediocre year next year. On the other hand if you sell any vets off the roster and damage your chances of the playoffs that also looks bad you can't be hurting a winning team, that would look fucked up.

Only way they can potentially sell is any expiring contracts that do not want to re-sign can be moved but as long as there's transparency from management in their reasoning for selling someone who you would need in the latter half of the season and in the playoffs.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Duclair go on a little run for a while now, interesting to see if he can sustain it though. Seems like a wildly inconsistent guy

Panik was a healthy scratch so at least he'll play in Arizona? :lol:

Meh. Not that this would help clendening much but I do prefer him in Chicago.
