Knights NEED to scoop JT and EK for all that is good in hockey

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

last summer when they spent $20MM on Mason & Kulikov tho


other than Vesalainen, do they have any decent prospects that aren't already on the roster?
F Mason Appleton & D Sami Niku look like their best players in the A last season
could get some depth out of guys like that, Petan, Lemieux, Spacek, etc

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

new 31 Thoughts

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/...karlsson-deal/

Quote:
2. Trotz reportedly made $1.5M last season. Coach salaries aren’t public, but, from what I understand, that is lower than anyone currently under contract who has won a Stanley Cup.

Anaheim’s Randy Carlyle is believed to be around $2 million. Peter Laviolette and John Tortorella are believed to be in the mid-twos. Dan Bylsma (still under contract to Buffalo) and Mike Sullivan are three-ish. Darryl Sutter’s last deal was $3.5 million. Claude Julien’s contract has been publicly reported at five, while Mike Babcock and Joe Quenneville are over six.
as championship teams tend to overpay everyone, the Caps are probably gonna overpay everyone

Trotz almost got fired this season, then they ran good in the playoffs, now he's gonna get a fat extension instead

and then fired in 1.5 years probably lol


Quote:
3. It’s well known that Orpik pressed for Oshie to be re-signed last summer. MacLellan agreed, saying the winger’s positive attitude was essential.
ya the next 7 years of Timothy Jimothy are gonna be awesome
gjge GM Orpik lol
though maybe it's worth it for 1 RANG? sure why not


Quote:
6. Beagle is an unrestricted free agent, and centres are hard to find.
thoughts + prayers to whoever overpays him


Quote:
9. A Marc-Andre Fleury extension seems certain.
speaking of a guy that is gonna get way overpaid...


Quote:
10. Word is one of the biggest hang-ups at the end was Cody Glass, drafted sixth overall last June. Vegas didn’t want to include him.

The Knights have just one pick in the top three rounds (a second), and since they’re still creating a prospect pool, a Karlsson deal could be very tricky. It’s why they’re being linked to John Carlson, because he only costs you money.
so reading between the lines, Vegas was ok trading Nick Suzuki, but not Cody Glass
tough call

and signing John Carlson instead of trading stuff for Erik Karlsson (and taking Bobby Ryan's contract) might be a good Plan A actually


Quote:
11. Remember: you must use your own original picks, not those acquired from somewhere else.

Offer Sheet (AAV) --- Compensation
$1,339,575 or below --- None
Over $1,339,575 to $2,029,59 --- 3rd
Over $2,029,59 to $4,059,322 --- 2nd
Over $4,059,322 to $6,088,980 --- 1st, 3rd
Over $6,088,980 to $8,118,641 --- 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Over $8,118,641 to $10,148,302 --- (2) 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Over $10,148,302 --- (4) 1st
RFA compensation for this summer ^
wonder if we'll see an offer sheet this year with the cap where it is


Quote:
12. The NHLPA hopes to let the league know by June 18 how much it will raise the salary cap for 2018-19.

The league indicated the limit will be between $78-$82 million, with the players having the option to raise the ceiling by up to five per cent.
where the cap is ^


Quote:
14. I do think Montreal is a stealth destination for unrestricted free-agent-to-be Jack Johnson.
lolololololol


Quote:
15. There were reports Montreal began some preliminary discussions with Max Pacioretty, who is one season away from unrestricted free agency. There’s a serious sense that those brief discussions are being prompted by other teams curious to hear what the winger is looking for on an extension.

Somehow, Los Angeles is going to add scoring, and I can see the Kings being one of the clubs involved.
Quote:
16. The Kings have been linked to Jeff Skinner. Enter Florida in that market. The Panthers, who narrowly missed the playoffs after a late-season charge, are looking to add.
Kings gonna do *something* in an effort to convince Doty to stay


Quote:
17. I have a theory on Dundon: when he said everyone was available (except Sebastian Aho and Martin Necas), his real goal was to learn the trade value of all the players.
sure, why not


Quote:
18.Trade that might only make sense to me: Scott Darling for Marian Hossa, with the Hurricanes keeping money on the goalie.

Blackhawks clear cap room and gain security if Corey Crawford is unavailable. Carolina can go elsewhere in net and save actual dollars.
Mean Gene Melnyk so jelly bout dat salary relief


Quote:
20. After his Game 5 scratch versus Nashville, Tobias Enstrom let Winnipeg know he won’t be returning. The Jets/Thrashers are the only franchise he’s known during his NHL career, but it’s time for a change.

There have been some talks between the team and Paul Stastny, but it doesn’t sound too in-depth. As Winnipeg prepares to pay the price for good drafting/development plus success, I wonder about someone like Mathieu Perreault. He might be at a number the Jets can’t afford. You have to think there’d be interest.
Jets news ^


Quote:
23. Pittsburgh has shown legit interest in Max Domi – there’s a long history between Tie Domi and Mario Lemieux.

Toronto is looking for a third-line centre, Tampa Bay a right-shot defenceman.

I’m curious to see what the Rangers do with Vladislav Namestnikov. He’s arbitration eligible, and the numbers are very good.
good to know


Quote:
26.The market for Philipp Grubauer starts with Carolina and the Islanders. We’ll see if it grows from there.
Darling out, Grubauer in
ok sure whatever

i like how these teams without a goalie just keep rolling the dice on these random dudes until they strike gold


Quote:
29. It’s believed assistant GM Mike Futa — linked to almost every job opening in existence — signed an extension with Los Angeles.

Mark Hunter, involved in almost as many rumours, has been linked to Detroit, Montreal and the Islanders. We’ll see. He’s (officially) unavailable until July 15.
front office news ^


bonus note from Dreger:

Quote:
Ilya Kovalchuk in California this weekend. Visited with the LA Kings yesterday and will meet with the Sharks tomorrow.
another option for the Kings
doesn't cost them anything, other than the cap space that they don't have

the other day was thinking about the less talked about (as opposed to Karlsson, Doughty, and McDonagh) big 2019 UFA dman Oliver Ekman-Larsson, and how i had no clue what he's gonna do. anyway, good i didn't waste my energy i guess, because Friedman is saying that he's probably re-signing with the Coyotes.

terms should be fascinating, especially for those other 3 guys mentioned above.

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

other notable UFAs next year:

F - Tyler Seguin, Matt Duchene, Jordan Eberle, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Jeff Skinner, Artemi Panarin, Blake Wheeler, Gus Nyqvist, Wayne Simmonds, Max Pacioretty, Mats Zuccarello, Jakob Silfverberg, Eric Staal, Micheal Ferland

D - Zdeno Chara, Anton Stralman, Alex Edler, Jake Gardiner, Nik Hjalmarsson, Ryan Ellis, Tyler Myers, Nate Schmidt, Nik Kronwall, Dylan McIlrath

G - Pekka Rinne, Sergei Bobrovsky, MA Fleury, Semyon Varlamov, Cam Talbot


and then boringly, like 90% of them will sign extensions in July

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

possibly, but he seems to be enjoying himself in Dallas

solid squad with Benn, Radulov, Klingberg
need some better depth
Heiskanen coming in should help
Valeri Nichushkin might be returning as well


just noticed that Klingberg is signed for 4 more years at $4.25MM
... ya that's pretty good

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

re: MAF

he's pretty much the face of the franchise right now and the most popular player here. coming off of a career year stats-wise, he can name his salary, vgk will have to pay it.

so yes overpaid seems likely

the thing is, it seems like vgk have some decent backups (subban's bro is one). they won a bunch of games when MAF was injured earlier in the year. one or two of them could look attractive to some other teams if vgk aren't going to play them?

I'm assuming OEL will come in at something in the 7-8M/yr range for long term. McDonagh will end up in similar.

Karlsson will push towards 10. Doughty will be highest of the bunch.

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

The real hope among LAK fans is that DD takes the Kopitar contract. 8 years, $80M. Would consider that a discount. Snap accept pretty much anything under 8yr, $92M

If it gets to the 8yr, $100M mark I get squeamish. DD might be the only player I would give that. Considering age, health history(EK fails here) and prime time performance (RANGZ and GOLDZ).
edit:
Forgot McD LOL me. Would have paid him that easy.

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

thought OEL might hold out for closer to $10MM/year, because what else do the Coyotes have?
he could get 8 from literally anyone

also thought he might take less than 8 years, like 5 or 6 maybe
1. it'd him an exit strategy if the team doesn't improve eventually
2. with 8 years he's UFA again at 34, seems possibly better to have that at 31-32 for another big contract

Re: NHL Offseason 2018: Sponsored, once again, by Canadian Fail

and you thought Mrs. Colangelo's burner accounts was some SPORTZ DRAMA





http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-...-erik-karlsson

Quote:
Mike Hoffman's longtime girlfriend allegedly behind campaign of harassment against Melinda and Erik Karlsson

Melinda Karlsson has filed an order of protection against the longtime girlfriend of Senators forward Mike Hoffman — alleging a campaign of harassment that plagued the Karlssons after the death of their son and through much of the last NHL season, this newspaper has learned.


The application for a peace bond, sworn in front of Justice of the Peace Louise Logue on May 4, alleges that Monika Caryk, Hoffman’s partner, had threatened Melinda (neÚ Curry) and husband Erik Karlsson from November 2017 to the date the information was sworn to.

It was in late November that the Karlssons announced on social media that they were expecting their first child, a son they would later name Axel Michael who was stillborn on March 19, 2018.

“Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead,” says Melinda Karlsson’s sworn statement to the court.

“She also uttered that she wished I was dead and that someone should ‘take out’ my husband’s legs to ‘end his career.’

“Monika Caryk has posted over 1,000 negative and derogatory statements about me as a professional.”

Reached on Tuesday afternoon, Hoffman said, “There’s nothing really for me to say, at this time. That’s all I can say.”

In March, Sens captain Erik Karlsson blasted an anonymous online troll who, in the comments section of a post mourning his dead son, accused his wife of “popping painkiller medication” during her pregnancy.

In an Instagram post mourning his son’s death, Erik Karlsson posted a photo of Axel’s tiny footprints. In the post, Karlsson thanked the city and the team’s fans for their love and support and wrote: “We feel very lucky to be Axel’s parents. Even though he was stillborn, we know we will hold him again one day under different circumstances and the joy he gave us will be with us forever.”

The post garnered more than 10,000 comments, with the overwhelming majority of them expressions of support and sympathy for the couple. However, one comment, posted by user @sandydandy45, stood out: “I feel bad for the baby he didn’t have a chance with Melinda popping pain killer medication everyday.”

It took the league’s top defenceman just seven minutes to respond: “How dare you. You have been making fake accounts and buying hacked ones for months to harass me and my wife but this is an all new low even for you. You are a disgusting person.”

The user @sandydandy45 has since deactivated that account.

This newspaper also found other social media users coming to Melinda’s defence after Twitter user @petersonmegan51 used an anti-bullying event to insult her. That account has also since been deleted.

In recent weeks, Caryk has created a new Instagram profile, which she has made private. That account calls her a “professional packer-unpacker,” “frenchdog enthusiast” and “Champagne lover.” The peace bond application sworn against her on May 4, ordered a court date of May 25, but by that time, Caryk had still yet to be served with the notice.

This newspaper has also learned that there is an active Ottawa police investigation into the criminal harassment (stalking) allegations and that it is being probed by central district detectives. No criminal charges have been laid against Caryk and none of the allegations against her has been tested in court. No conditions have been set out in the bond either, since it appears to not have been served on Caryk.

would be stunned if he got more than $5MM/year
a deal with performance bonuses probably makes the most sense

This crossed the line from cyber bullying to something entirely different in April. Unfortunate that this private matter has become public. Incredibly proud of my girl for standing up for herself and her family, it took courage.
ppl presumably in the know seem to think that these allegations are true

not good for Hoffman or the Sens
