  1. It's odd because we would have then needed to sign another goalie to expose in the draft.
  2. More news..... A day after we learned that Carey Price would be left unprotected, and hours after that was made official, a report surfaced that Price was dealing with a hip injury that would require several months to heal, likely carrying into the start of the 2021-22 season. The news may help to explain Price’s exclusion from the protection list beyond just the team trying to protect the more enticing contract of Jake Allen. Seattle was surely made aware of the issue when the Montreal Canadiens’ list was revealed, and would have had that info from the start as they try to select their one player from the 30 participating teams (Las Vegas excluded). Seattle still has several goaltenders to choose from (they need to select at least three), and it’s still not out of the question that they would take on Price’s contract and wait for him to return to health before he becomes their starter moving forward. We’ll learn what their strategy is on Thursday when they full roster is revealed.
  3. Yeah ,,,, if he's holding out because of half a million more/year,,, then he obviously doesn't want to be here. If Price ends up in Seattle somehow, then possibly MB ups his offer,, but i wouldn't count on it.
  4. I think i read somewhere that Price had a huge bonus due him before next season. Might be another reason Seattle could pass. If Price and Weber aren't targeted, then that leaves Kulak and Fleury as the next best option for them,,, unless they have info on JD that the rest of us know zip about. Can't see Dano being of interest to them as a UFA
  5. Protecting Armia over Drouin really says a lot about JD's situation going forward IMO.

  8. Certainly will be an interesting few days in the media and fan boards.
  9. If that's the case then Seattle probably balks at picking him without the flexibility of flipping him. Who knows though,,,, could draft him strictly for promotional purposes.
  10. That would be interesting to find out if he can do that. I would think when you get traded that clause gets nullified.
  11. Yes but,,, Price becomes a lot more attractive as a trade chip if a team retains some of that salary. A franchise like Seattle has the Cap room to do just that if they flip him for another teams starter and some high draft choices or prospects.
  12. Was wondering the same thing.
  13. So,,,, if Seattle bites and picks Price, i imagine his NMC is now null and void and he can be moved anywhere they want. Right??
  14. If this is true it's a real gamble by MB. I'm nowhere near convinced Seattle wouldn't jump all over that pick. He gives them an instant star attraction a la Fluery in Vegas. Wouldn't even surprise me to see them have another deal worked out to flip him to another team for their starter and some added picks.
  15. Exposing Price would be the best kept secret in the hockey world. MB would receive death threats if that were to happen and Seattle jumped all over it. Sounds like Eklund and his whole family would be behind that kind of news.

  20. Report: Blue Jackets 'planning' to leave Max Domi unprotected (msn.com)
  21. Wish i had one for you. We're experiencing the same crap.
  22. Money is tight in the NHL with that flat Cap. It's hard to believe he can get a better deal somewhere else but then again,,,, there are a lot of incompetent GM's in this League.
