    Sounds like Scheifele is a target also, which I like. If we end up with Strome back as the # 2 C I will be very upset. That is not good enough. He adds very little outside of scoring some points, and in theory having a connection with Panarin. It is time to move on from Strome.

    Also seems like our RW's will be Kakko, Lafreniere, and Kravtsov. Good young trio. Z and Chytil at C, need the # 2. Kreider, Panarin as the top 2 LW's. Motte and Goodrow added into the bottom 6. That is a nice start that would be capped off very well with a good # 2 C add.

    The D is set outside of a LD to pair with Schneider. Lundkvist could be the guy to go as part of a package for a # 2 C.

    If they land PLD or Schiefele and Chytil is in the deal, Goodrow is good enough to handle the 3C, or they could sign a cheap guy like Stastny for a year and Goodrow could move to the 4C which would be better with Blais/Reaves on that line.

    If they fuck with Lafreniere next year again and make him go to RW it will be incredibly frustrating to see.

    Doesn't seem like they are going to get Copp or Strome. Which means they have to trade for somebody.

    I think letting Copp go is a mistake. Even though he kinda disappeared towards the end of the playoff run I still think he is a good fit with this team.

    I would agree, but if he wants $6M (or close to it) per for 5 or 6 years, I am not sure I would do that for Copp.

    I would have wanted Copp back more if he didn't disappear in the playoffs but he's going to get more than the Rangers can afford.

    Looks like they’re bringing back Gauthier 1y 800k (1 way).

    McDonagh traded to the Predators.

    That is going to hurt Tampa a lot. He was still one of their key pieces. They want to go with Cernak and Foote on the right side. Good luck. Not so easy when you have to face other teams top lines in close games.

    I agree losing McDonough will hurt the Bolts defensively but he's 33, using the money to resign Paul was a no brainer.

    Paul got 7 years...seemed like a long contract to me for a bottom 6 guy but for $22m it was a steal.

    Not a steal. He is no Goodrow. That deal will fuck them.

    I have a feeling it's going to be one of the Winnipeg guys for both Chytil and Kakko, with the Rangers getting back a 2nd rounder also. That's the only way they can fit a $6.5m salary in. Maybe they can hang onto Lundkvist and use him then for a younger 3C. If Edmonton has someone maybe Georgiev can go in a package.

    Scheifele is not worth Kakko and Chytil. He's 29. Chytil and Kakko won't make a lot of money for a while so that makes no sense anyway.

    No way they deal both Chytil and Kakko for Scheifele. I can see one, but no shot it will be both - that would be a dumb deal.

    They can fit him in at $6.125M the next two seasons, they'll just need to move out someone in two years when Scheifele becomes a UFA - by then it could be Kreider or Trouba.

    You think the Goodrow contract is much better than the Paul contract?
