He's actually pretty good, and therefore had no business any longer being at ESPN.

ESPN is hemorrhaging viewers and it makes me giddy.

Good. The Russians are already controlling too many aspects of our lives.

Ovi is getting older now anyway. His controller will be unplugged more often.

Link
It’s believed Fletcher has talked to Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill about the No. 3 overall pick. Nill is seeking a defenseman, so if the Wild got involved in that type of trade, it could hurt in the short-term. Flahr, even though the Wild doesn’t have a first- or second-round pick, poo-pooed that type of trade becoming a reality.


Pretty much there's rumors about any defenseman to the Stars. Brodin/Dumba/Scandella, Tanev, Vatanen, Hamonic, De Haan etc Shattenkirk

Done like dinner especially if we draft Heiskanen.

Yeah, this whole Vegas expansion is mucking up everyone's roster. And the article makes the good point that when one of these players who can not be protected is traded, they will have to be protected by the receiving team, creating another hole. More reason to lean toward keeping our #3 pick, at least until the Vegas expansion goes down.

Yeah, none of those names really seem worth the #3 pick. And I still don't understand the weird collective agreement that Tanev is worth "way more" than the #3 pick. Like... on what planet?

I am not in favor of Tanev unless its a swap of Oleksiak and Nemeth for Tanev. I'd much rather have the magic beans of a #3 pick than Tanev.

Even if you're just swapping picks with Vancouver and moving down a couple spots and drafting Heiniskanen anyway?

I'd almost rather have Makar. Almost.

I mean, if it came down to it...

Under my plan we dump Nemeth and Oleksiak and keep the 3rd pick. Nothing I've seen from, or read about, Tanev in any way makes me think he is worth the wild speculation rumors about him.

I'd really like to see Travis Hamonic or Calvin de Haan here, and the Islanders are going to have expansion draft protection issues, so....

The Stars will be announcing their new jersey look right before the draft. My inside source tells me it'll be a victory green mooterus.

I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Adidas actually couldn't match the exact pantone color, so the new jerseys will be Overtime Loss Green.

Is it true that Adidas eliminated third jerseys? That sucks. I was hoping we'd see a black jersey again sometime. With an actual logo, that is.

No team wants Eakin so he won't be protected and probably won't be traded.



From Heika's chat.
I think they are most focused on Brodin or Dumba, depending on what Minnesota decides to do. If the Wild do nothing (preferring to lose just one defenseman in expansion rather than trade one and lose another in expansion), the guess is Dallas will strike up a conversation with Vegas pretty quickly.

Bob Sturm was doing a lot of this stuff ahead of the Hitch hiring, so I wonder if this is a done deal.
