They would literally have been better off taking the best player available from every team and then making a deal at the deadline next year. Take Vatanen, Dumba, Mrazek etc. What a joke.

Now we'll have to watch that franchise flounder for 7 years till it gets to the level it could have started at next year.



LOL I'm such an idiot.

Remember when the Avs were really good with 112pts and 2nd in the West 4 years ago? Still think Vegas is closer to that team than a legit contender.

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

I don’t think they are this good but hell that were the first to 50 points out west.

They work hard and roll 4 lines at you none stop.

They are the epitome of this quote

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?

It appears the Montreal Canadiens will be without the services of Shea Weber until after the all-star break.
Head coach Claude Julien spoke to the media today and said his star blueliner is doubtful to return before the annual NHL festivities.

The Nashville Predators have announced that Filip Forsberg will be out four-six weeks due to his upper-body injury.

yep they can come at you none stop by rolling 4 lines. I think a lot of teams always talk about wanting to roll 4 lines but not a lot of teams can do it b/c their bottom 6 guys get exposed the more minutes they play.

Right now its hard to argue them adding anything. I'd be scared to mess up a good thing.

As for trading away rentals I'd say it won't happen till closer to the trade deadline without a major cool down and will also depend on positions.

They have an abundance of D so if I didn't see them as staying I'd be okay shipping them off since they can replace them. Forwards they don't have as much depth. Neal being the big UFA guy who I'd considering holding on to past the deadline without a commitment

I think you do absolutely nothing and just roll with what you have. Can't dismantle a team while you are in 1st place and I don't think throwing future pieces away to improve is the right move either for a couple reasons. The 1st of which being that you don't want to damage your future on a team that might be a one time thing. Secondly, I don't think you want to mess with the chemistry of the team either which is their greatest strength.
