Well, the first move has been made. I don't like giving up 1st or 2nd round picks. However, I'm quite sure they can get those picks back and more with some moves. I'm not sure if Gorton will go out and get a 2nd line center. Seems to me with this move that he could sign Strome now. I wonder if Fast in back in the fold but I doubt it. Lias is really a key now. I've said he will be an upgraded Fast. People forgot that even last year when he was a disaster he still won about 47% of his draws. He plays all the time right in front of the other teams net. His game is made for the post season. I hope he comes back more mature and that thickheaded dipshit Quinn uses him. The fact we haven't heard anything about DeAngelo's contract is probably a good indicator he might go for a 2nd line center. One OTG a poster was talking about Domi rumors. I don't know. He's 25, wins under 50% of his draws. I don't see giving up much more than Buchnevich and a prospect like Jones for him. He's a RFA and probably will ask for over 5 million. I want Dvorak if they can get him. It's hard to predict what JD and Gorton will do because they have unlimited resources to make deals. The farm was rating number 1 by one guy. Probably by multiple places. They have players like TDA, Strome and Buchnevich that teams will probably have great interest in. I was hoping he could trade Staal. Didn't see the deal happening for a 2nd though. Most of our fans are delusional enough to think this paves the way for Miller. Miller is not ready and it would be a big mistake to not give him at least one full year at Hartford. He was under a terrible coaching staff at Wisconsin. He needs more time. Hajek is ready to take Staal's spot.
