    Not a bad deal. Let’s see what he can do here this year.

    Logical. Smart. His value is really low right now. On a rebuilding team he should get oodles of playing time in order to build his value up as best they can. Figure on the Rangers possibly flipping him at the deadline, or the draft next year?

    Perfect. Easily tradeable at the deadline if he has a good year, or he can stay and maybe sign a new deal in two years if he looks good and can contribute when we are closer to done with the rebuilding. If he’s bad - no problem having his 4 mill for two years before letting him go when Chytil/Lias etc needs new contracts.

    He's the kind of guy we would have been looking for had he been a UFA.

    There was never much question on this. Gorton wasn't going to make his McD-Miller deal look bad by quickly selling low on this guy.

    Don't hate it but don't think he's a key part to build around either. Wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be a bust. To me the rebuild is off to a shitty start

    He's not. Which is why they only gave him two years.

    They've made five first-round picks in two years, including a seventh overall and tenth overall. How that qualifies as "off to a shitty start" is beyond me.

    So far everything is going perfectly according to the plan. The last 14 months we have added Chytil, Andersson, Howden, Hajek, Rykov, Lindgren, Kravstov, Miller, Lundkvist++. I dont see how this could've started any better to be honest.

    They could have not won those games late to take themselves out of the lottery and have had a better chance at a top-5 pick. Other than that, it's gravy.

    Well, since they had Kravtsov as their #2 forward I guess that doesn't matter anyway.

    I can see Buffalo getting another first overall pick and turning into Edmonton.
    LGR!

    As to Vlad, my hope is they give him a ton of time in the top-six this year. Have to build him up as much as possible if they hope to move him at the deadline.
