    Luke Schenn just signed with Vancouver for 2 years at $850K per. He would have been a good signing for that amount.

      I'm wondering if maybe the holdup is that maybe the Isles, Seattle and St Louis are rekindling talks around Tarasenko. Maybe Seattle absorbs some salary, and gets a pick and/or a player they want out of it. St Louis dumps the contract, and the Isles flip a package to Seattle to take one of their many Left D's plus Tarasenko at a reduced salary.

      Those types of deals are difficult to pull off, which could be the holdup.

        Could be Dom.

        Too bad, Hoffman was just signed to a 3 year deal worth $4.5M per with Montreal. I thought that was a good backup option if they can't get Tarasenko

          What do y’all think about Ryan Murray? The Devils just opened the vault for Dougie Hamilton. Doesn’t appear likely that they can sign Murray as well.

              His stock has definitely fallen from the time Snow wanted to trade all of our picks for the right to pick him # 2 overall.

                I'm not a fan, he's slow. Maybe as a #7.

                  Well Bob put out a list of 15 players before FA started today. So far he is 14 of 15 are correct. The one he hasn’t quite nailed yet is Parise the Isles. Looks like Bob is going to bat 1000 today

                    I like this team, we were so close to a cup and we add Lee to the same group.
                    I have no doubt that line would click immediately

                      If we don’t get Tank I can see Wally on the top line plus I like what the P3 line could do together

                        Agreed we can not have a 9 million dollar dman on this team

                          I would never consider it, but this was not expected.
                          Our tandem is to valuable to let go. 82 game season next year

                            Exactly what I was expecting today. Lou following his MO from last season. Once again in Lou we trust. We have contracts signed in Lou’s drawer but won’t be announced until our RFA’s are signed. No panic from me that is for sure.

                              There is really no mystery.here. Look at last year we take care of our own first. For all we know CC has already signed but there is still Beau, Pelech and Sorky to take care of.

                                Let’s be honest this guy could never play Islander hockey. We work best when we play as a unit of 20. This guy just doesn’t fit our team
