    Sticky: Re: 2018 NHL Draft Preliminary Thread

    Those were purely media speculations. We were always taking Svechnikov or trading down. I don’t think there was any real thought otherwise based on looking at the various quotes in hindsight

    I think you have to look back at our management situation at the deadline, and take into account Skinner's situation. Francis got fired for a reason, and Skinner didn't fire his agent and replace him...

    Again, if the situation is that Skinner is 100% leaving after the season no matter what happens, I don't think it matters what Brindy wants even a little bit. You CANNOT risk losing the plater for...

    OK ... no more recaps. Apparently I'm the only one interested in the thread and frankly, I had a heart problem and spent two days in the hospital. No way I'm reliving ANY of that.

    Sure. Anybody is a risk.

    "Can't" turns into "have to" in that scenario. What you CAN'T do is let Skinner walk for nothing at the end of the season.

    I absolutely believe that we've talked to them, but I fail to see a simple deal that makes sense. Unless there's some 3 way nonsense going on, I doubt anything comes of this aside from talk.

    If you draft Dahlin, you can go ahead and trade Hanifin without hesitation and he's probably good enough to carry Faulk in a pairing, which might just let Faulk regain some of his mojo. I don't think...

    IIRC Dale waived goodbye to us a few years ago, worn down by the losing. Smart.

    And yes. We probably should.

    Agreed. There will be some sort of secondary logo ... or the dreaded script "Carolina" which is what I fully expect.

    Remember. If you expect the worst, you are only pleasantly surprised.

    I think the Stars set the bar pretty high in 1999 ... their celebrations ended up in rules for handling the Cup being changed. That's a pretty high bar.


    Or a LOT of low bars

    Germany played with a truckload of hubris in that game. It's a mistake they won't make again. I pity their next opponent.
