What a shitty draft. Only three former Stars?

And apparently Ron Francis made zero trades too.

There's now some clarification. There were no pre-expansion draft trades, but some should be announced tomorrow.

Today, it looks like what Nill did was cause himself to lose both Dickinson and Oleksiak because of the expansion draft. Genius?

Is anyone surprised? They're great at mishandling assets.

The last asset Nill managed correctly was Patrick Eaves back in 2017.

At least we're talking Oleksiak and Dickinson, and not, like, Miro or Klingberg (so far...)

Not really, but I'm also not a fan of trying to fill two roster holes like this. Wouldn't be surprised if Cogliano gets the call.

Dickinson was my least favourite player on the team. Will have to find a new one this season.

Everyone staying healthy fills most of the forward roster spots.
Benn Seguin Radulov
Pavelski Robertson Hintz
Gurianov Faksa Comeau
Kiviranta Scrub1 Scrub2

Damiani was a point per game player in Cedar Park at only age 20. That’s nothing to sneeze at (although he could end up being another Shore). Mascherin had a decent year, too. We have a bunch of other marginal guys who can at least take up space adequately. Plus, we have the unlimited potential of Dellandrea. The situation may not be unusually serious.

Al is right. Trade Lindell+ for Jones, sign Coleman and Suter, then call it a day.

That lineup is slower than the 2001 grumpy old men roster.

We should probably bring back Cogliano for his speed.

I personally think that we should add Kiviranta to the former FCC line so that we can have a KFC line.

Lindell, it has been decided.

Honestly, I started to have my doubts about Seattle when they hired Poor Man's Gulutzan as head coach.

Shaun Van Allen was on that team. Literally the slowest hockey player I've ever seen. I could skate faster than that guy.
