    For those wondering, I suppose the idea that Gourde wasn't there in person could mean he is still available via trade. Of course he could be hungover in a ditch with the cup too but still.

    So Seattle isn’t making trades. They didn’t make a single pre-draft trade. And they didn’t select any good players.

    What exactly was the strategy?

    And they didn’t draft one identifiable player. Vegas got the ball rolling when it took Fleury. They had their goaltender and face of the franchise; someone to rally around.

    Who did Seattle just select that got the fans going wild? I like Gourde, but he isn’t that player.

    Unless Prices injury is totally fucking terrible, they should have just picked him.

    Their roster is going to be a bottom dweller. They may as well just drafted from the AHL at this point. How do you not pickup Tarasenko and Price to upstart your franchise for a year or two. Both could be deadline flips in a year or two. Im admittedly a keyboard cowboy with no background or know how to draft an expansion team but damn.....I just figured taking a few franchise players would be worthwhile to upstart a team.

    Giordano to head the D.
    Tarasenko to head the O.
    Price to head the crease.

    Wow. Seattle Krakheads.

    They took some good players -- they just whiffed big time on a bunch of others where they could have had measurably better ones.

    Anyone else who watched the broadcast notice, how Ron Francis totally ducked the question when Chris Fowler asked him point blank why they didn't take Price from Montreal?

    I don't know if taking Vince Dunn instead of Tarasenko was a bad move. He's a pretty defenseman who could be a star down the line. For as poor a job Seattle did to some here, their defense is pretty good and obviously deep. They have 3 decent goalies and basically 4 3rd lines who will play a heavy game. I don't think they did a bad job and with their cap space they can target whom they want instead of picking through other teams garbage contracts. Price, Voracek, and Tarasenko are bad contracts. Why start off your franchise with bad contracts?

    I disagree about Voracek & Tarasenko's contracts being bad; while I certainly wouldn't say they were great contracts as Tarasenko is coming off of an injury and Voracek is coming off of a slightly below average season. Both only have 2 seasons remaining and could be easily flipped after this season with a little salary retained if they don't work out.

    The real miss on not picking up one or two marquee names here is to give the fans something to be excited. If I am new member of the fan base and I went to that event at Gas Works Park tonight, I would be like the Cleveland fans in the video below.

    Price I get not picking up. I think you’d have to be insane to take his contract when there are so many other lesser options for less money that really aren’t THAT much of a lesser option. Tarasenko was a case of Dunn just being available and a better pick in the long term I guess. Or it could be argued at least. Either way, there still were other names out there they passed on which I won’t understand if they want to compete in a division that is very weak. That is unless they sign some high valued ufa guys like Landeskog

    Yeah, I know. Big marketing fail. But maybe they have a trade or big FA signing

    From all the rumors, Rick Carpinello, Elliott Friedman, others + my source.
    Rangers really busy weekend?

    To SEA: Hajek, Gauthier + 3rd round pick
    To NYR: Giordano(sal retained)

    To OTT: Strome + 1st
    To NYR: Ott 1st

    To BUF: Ott 1st, Buch, Chytil and Jones
    To NYR: Eichel. https://mobile.twitter.com/mickey8ra...94611234787328
    So according to that it would be Strome + Our original 1st + Buch + Chytil + Jones for Eichel??? That's way too many assets to give up for one player. Drury should be shot if he takes that deal.

    Landeskog. I imagine with this space and lack of a one C, this is who they target.

    dont take the twitter account serious they put Goodrow at RW in one of their post, better chance he's playing goalie than the RW when hes a LW/C
