The Canucks draft a Swedish left-handed player named Elias Pettersson. Not that Elias Pettersson, mind you, the other Elias Pettersson. 😛

My favorite part is that it's not even the first time this has happened for that franchise. They had 2 players named Greg Adams in the late 80s.

Calling it right now. Toronto's goalie tandem at some point this season will be Matt Murray and Mackenzie Blackwood.

 

Hopefully that will also mean the end of Kyle Dubas.

 

The people want Campbell or Cam Talbot.

Shane Wright falling to Seattle at 4 is a real coup for the Kraken. I think that may have the potential to be a franchise-starting moment. Nothing against Cooley, but I feel like the Yotes yoted that big time. 

I feel like Wright didn’t have as good of a season this last year, and so I’m not sure how well everything will transition to the NHL for him. I also think the Coyotes made a great pick with Cooley. He’s supposed to be just as electric, and I have a feeling he’s gonna have a great season at the U of M. I don’t think the Coyotes could really go wrong with either player… It’s not like they grabbed a guy projected to go in the 5th round or something

Burns goes to Carolina. Kinda sad to see him go after a decade, but if I'm thinking with my head, as I should, his best hockey has been behind him for a while now. 

 

Now if we could just get someone to bite on either Karlsson's or Vlasic's bad contract, now we'd be cooking with gas.

In the last two offseasons combined, Vegas has now given away the reigning Vezina winner and a point-per-game player for absolutely nothing. 🤡🤡🤡

A team modeled after the Excalibur but operated like Circus Circus.

The big free agent choosing to go to Columbus is a Thing That’s Not Supposed to Happen, which is both really cool and means that a bunch of people from Real Hockey Towns are big mad on the internet. I’m excited and maybe I’ll pick up the phone the next time a Blue Jackets ticket rep calls!

It's never happened to us. This is easily the biggest free agent signing in team history and the sad thing is that Adam Foote might be the second biggest. That's how much this just doesn't happen to us. I can't wait to learn why he chose Columbus because I, like everyone else, am so pleasantly flummoxed. 

 

Now work on that Laine extension!

I'm from a so-called "Real Hockey" market, and if a bunch of them are angry, then  so be it. (I get a little pleasure out of it)  That's probably a consequence of a hard cap system and a market that may had to overpay to get certain talent.
