    Another expectations thread

    I am a bit surprised that we are considered merely a marginally improved team across the board. I think this has the making of one of those deals where the team takes a deep run with the recently departed gm getting a lot of the credit for the pipeline of good young talent hep amassed.i can't see how we aren't a top 8 team in the east.

    i agree. This team has it all aside from some young guys needing experience. If the coaches and team leadership fulfill their respective roles I think this team could really take off this season

    also i’m guessing they’re not gonna have trouble hitting the floor at all. expect a competitive team immediately.
    and their HC will probably be Mike Babcock..if things in TOR keep going the way they are!!!!

    Why wouldn’t an expansion team take Jake if he were available? Don’t they need to meet the NHL cap minimum just like all teams? Or are they given a pass in their first year?

    Voracek for for an expansion team could be a smart way to fill some needs and help reach the cap minimum. Jake is a class guy, great with teammates and the media.

    maybe the smart play IS to keep Jake and expose him in the expansion...otherwise don't we run the risk of losing a great, young player in the expansion?

    I didn't say that he did.

    Pretty sure Voracek doesn’t have one. Personally... I really hope he’s traded before then for younger/cheaper assets.

    I don't know what I'm talking about, probably.
    Yes, if a player has a no movement clause, they are required to be put on the protected list. Are you sure Voracek has one? I know G does, but I didn't think Voracek did too. Looking at this website, they do not have Voracek tagged with a clause (if you flip to Giroux, you'll see it as an anchor in the status column).
