Offer Calvin de Haan (local guy) a fair contract and have him play with Karlsson. I'd be moving on from Ceci and finding someone for Chabot to play with (stay-at-home type). I'd then re-sign Wideman (two year deal) and pair him with Boro. Carry Harpur as the extra, trade Claesson. Pokka, Englund, Jaros as the call-ups

As for forwards, I've seen more out of Chlapik than I have Smith. Brown and White will come in eager prove they belong, Formenton may make the team, etc, Maybe there is smoke on a Hoffman for Nuge deal after all? Max Domi has been rumored to be available. Paul Stastny? Patrick Berglund?

But we're not competing for the playoffs next year. I see next year as a means of off-setting more salary, securing our top guys, and a year of development for our prospects.

I think you are either forgetting about Wolanin or havenít been watching him. Iíve said it all along, him and Wideman will make a fantastic bottom pairing.

There it is. Another perfect tank night. Ottawa loses, Detroit wins (beating our 2nd 1st round selection) and Vancouver won again too.

A couple days ago I couldn't imagine being in this spot...and now here we are, tied for 30th. Well done, Sens!

And the best part is, we havenít even got into the hopeful 3-point games in the schedule yet. Games like Buffalo vs Detroit and Vancouver vs Arizona. Instead, we are just hear because Ottawa is a disaster and Buffalo has beaten Toronto; Vancouver has beaten Anaheim, Dallas and Chicago; and Detroit has beaten Pittsburgh. That is doubly good as we have their 1st rounder and it isnít guaranteed that the Penguins even make the playoffs. We could have two lottery chances.

I'd like to raise a glass to Antii Niemi too, who is single handedly winning games for the Habs. †Good on ya, Antii.

Niemi has a .936 save % with the Habs.

About 30 minutes ago, the NHL officially released the draft lottery odds. The 1st draw will look like this:

18.5%
13.5%
11.5
9.5
8.5
7.5
6.5
6.0
5.0
3.5
3
2.5
2
1.5
1

The odds for the remaining teams will increase on a proportionate basis for the 2nd Lottery Draw, based on which club wins the 1st Lottery Draw, and again for the 3rd Lottery Draw, based on which club wins the 2nd Lottery Draw.

Interesting to note, the three worst teams this year, see their odds improve to win over last years percentages. After that, the other 11 teams saw their odd get worse to win, stay the same, or a small percentage point increase.

I'm beginning to sour on Tkachuk a little bit. The thought of drafting an NCAA player who's dad was active in the NHL scares me. I know Matthew plays for Calgary but he played in the OHL and didn't have the NCAA rule to opt out of his signing.

Interesting angle. I could get on board with this hesitation. I donít doubt his skill however.

yes he did, he could have not signed and reentered the draft

NCAA players who get picked high will it spurn their team . Thereís like one case in history, Blake wheeler.

Of course everyone has the choice not to sign or not, but trying to allude that NHL drafted players that end up playing in the CHL after being drafted would choose free agency as routinely as NCAA players would is like comparing elementary school to university. CHL players are dumb as Dung and basically have one dream; whereas NCAA players actually understand the world. And Blake Wheeler isnít the only high draft choice case in history. Ahhhhh! One guys name was just mentioned on this site last week actually.

Tkachuk has 3 more years before he would become FA I believe.

Iíve got to keep the streak going because once again, I actually believe Arizona will beat Vegas tonight because Vegas just clinched during their last game and will have a let down game tonight.

I was really hoping Florida could make a run and help push Pittsburgh out of the playoffs. It wasnít inconceivable until maybe last nights loss.

The Coyotes beat Vegas. Outstanding.

We gotta bend over and let Florida have their way with us tonight.

If Florida has any playoff aspirations they need a win to bring them within 1 point of New Jersey. A loss could spell the end of the Panthers. Must win for them tonight.
