  • Let the Deals Begin...Eberle To NYI for Strome (and other trades)

    Well, it has begun as we approach the draft. The Islanders traded Ryan Strome to the Oilers for Jordan Eberle. Edmonton gets younger and cheaper, giving them some cap space which they'll use to keep their top players and improve.

    Also, Vegas dealt two of the defensemen they picked in the expansion draft. Schlemko goes to Montreal for a 2019 5th rounder while Van Riemsdyk and a 7th go to the Hurricanes for a 2nd.

    I expect to see a lot of activity over the next few days. We'll see if the Flyers get involved.

    If someone told me a year ago Eberle would be traded for a 3rd line center, I would have laughed. How far the mighty have fallen.

    Gotta think playing with Taveres will make this kid a 30 goal guy. Good move by NYI IMO. Seems like the Oilers are treating this as a salary dump.

    On a side note, Kypreos was on the radio this morning and said the Flyers are looking for a "major shake up."

    Kyper looking for material, or some truth behind it? Personally, Hextall doesn't strike me as a guy looking to do anything drastic. He's very pragmatic and as exciting as vanilla ice cream...Me thinks it's just "talking heads" doing their thing...

          I don't get how they took someone off Sharks roster And flip for 5th in two years. Seems like a somewhat cap friendly number. Wasn't there anyone on the sharks roster worth more to them? Low probability that pick will amount to anything.

              Sure, let's get rid of any of those two, because we're such a competitive team anyway.

                The return would be huge.
                Pieces are in place for the future. We still need a top pairing defenseman and a scoring winger. Doesn't look like we are going to get anything from Free Agency or a trade due to our cap limitations. Development years ahead.
