    2017 Off-Season Around the NHL

    Post by PTFlea on Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:00 am

    Rumours and fun talk here.



    First: Lehner possibly being moved out of Buffalo? MacKenzie thinks so.

    Second: Several offers on the table for Eberle, trade seems imminent this summer.

    Third: Pundits like Friedman think E. Kane to LA makes a lot of sense.

    Evander Kane to anywhere doesn't make sense because the guy is locker room cancer.

    I dunno why Buffalo would give up on Lehner now, but a new GM brings new ideas. We can just thank Timmy Murray for that trade.

    Someone will give Kane a chance. He's got a load of talent and perhaps a lockerroom with some leaders can help - I personally wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole, but someone will.

    As for Lehner, I just don't understand why they would do that. Perhaps he's a cancer too? His numbers were quite good considering the horrendous D they have. I don't understand that one.

    May I suggest that he might be a good ascension program for Anderson? That ship's probably sailed, but the timing is interesting.

    E Kane in LA sounds like a disaster to me also. Only second to him in Vegas or possibly NY. But hey, if they want front row tickets to see him burn down in flames, who am I to stop them!

    Seems like Buffalo might want to move on from the "mistakes" of Murray. Doesn't seem like there's much love for Lehner and Kane and I heard Bogo could be on his way out also if they can move him.

    Lehner may have burned some bridges, but was it with the coaching staff or management? Could still work out, here.

    BTW, Mika has "dropped" his first single. Between making music and breaking legs he's not going to have much time left for hockey.

    So it seems there won't be an increase in cap limit for next year. How delicious is this timing! More pressure for trades!

    Pretty nice deal for Columbus. Only $5.25M through 19/20.

    What's the deal with Clarkson? He's insured, or not insured? Or was it Horton that wasn't insured and sent to Toronto?

    I think they were flipped for each other no? I think it was maybe Horton who wasn't insured hence Toronto picking up the tab.
