Taking care of the D already, I think Sea take a O from us. Their D already better than us and its not even official yet!

My honest prediction is that something completely off the books happens. There are only so many teams that can facilitate 3 party trades, and we are one of them. I think our players up for grabs are far less attractive than our ability to take on a short term cap hit.

It sucks to lose a guy who was top of the list for blocking shots, hits, and stood up for his teammates. At the end of the day, he has just 13 points since being drafted 5 years ago, but his contributions off the score sheet will surely be missed. Best of luck to Bastian going forward.

I have a feeling it will be Butcher. He has only 1 year left, so if it isn't a fit they can move him at the deadline or move on after the year. Maybe some consistent playing time lets him find his stride again, maybe not. Low risk pick that may reward them if he can finally recover to his pre-injury form.

Runner up: Johnsson, I know he looked like a dumpster fire last year but he has the pedigree of a middle 6 winger, and while his cap hit is 3.4 x2, they only have to pay 2.5 each year so it helps them hit the exp. draft floor number and also saves a little out of pocket expense for a startup franchise yet to have in game revenue.

With the Strickland tweets yesterday, do you think there is any chance we sweeten the pot for Seattle to take PK? Or trade him after the draft to Sea at 50% retained?

editors note: I'm not saying Bastian bc I am a total homer and I don't want to lose him, he'd be a solid pickup for them.

Totally fine, hes a replacement level 4th liner. Now moving on, time for the trade freeze to end and the draft! Hype!

So we know all of Seattle's picks except NYR, DET, CHI, and ANA. I'm shocked by a few of their picks, they definitely left better talent out there


Also Tarasenko is still with the Blues and they're clearly going to trade him, im all for trying to get him on the cheap

Yeah for sure. Hard to imagine them passing on Bean without there being a deal to not take him

Have to think Butcher is on the trade block. Wonder if they can move him at the draft.

I would assume so, yeah. It seems like both him and Subban are on the block

Seems doubtful. In years past they probably could have, but in flat cap world nobody wants him even if we retain. It's just one year on his contract so it's not a huge deal anyway.

Gona miss Bastian I think. Grit, youth, potential. Sure 5 years, but many players take 5 years to start, and he wasn’t much of a liability either. Loved seeing him and McLeod together. If you’re going to have a grit guy, on this young team, Bastian is perfect. You don’t want some older bum.. at least with Bastian he still had potential to get better.

I think we'll be fine losing Bastian. He's just a 4th line checker with some slight offensive upside. This is the type of guy that should be replaceable and isn't a key piece to the puzzle.

Losing Bastian stinks, but I'm not worried. Maltsev is the PERFECT replacement.







Oh wait....


Seriously, I've been a big Bastian fan for years but the team will be fine.

I didn’t want to lose Bastian either, but I guess the bright side is Holtz, Mercer, Clarke and Studenic are all probably ready to compete for an NHL job at RW so they should be covered.
