Ottawa signing Galchenyuk should help our goal production against the Sens.

Always liked this guy, he had so much talent. When he played for us he was the only Hab that could go end to end and actually score a goal. He might be a great late choice for a hockey pool when the season starts. I wish him well.

I was really hoping someone would offer sheet one of TB's players... I mean, it's a pretty fun thing to see unfold.

I mean, it could still happen but OS are always so super unlikely/rare.


They still have a couple of million $ in cap space but only have 18 players signed.  Only 4 D are under contract!  yikes.  Would be the right time to put in an OS , but what GM would actually do it?

Obviously we're not in a position to make an OS now but if we hadnt take on so many (arguably unnecessary) bigger contracts like Edmundson and Allen, we might have been able to do a deal around Sergachev and Johnson and sent them back a couple of cheaper players/prospects.  Ah well.

 What in the world must Hoffman and his agent be asking for ?....he should have been off the board long ago 

Either that or he has a team he has agreed to a deal with & they need to clear cap space.  I mean theoretically they dont "need" to - a team can go over until the end of training camp - but it does weaken their trade position if other teams know they are over.

Rumour is they were asking 6.5+ but teams are saying his defensive issues are bringing down his value.

I think all to often fans over value scoring alone. Most teams and coaches want responsible players that can score.
