He's an arbitration eligible RFA after this season; I believe the following year he's a UFA.
It's a little early for all this. But I'll say 1.) Kyrou; 2.) Perron; 3.) Faulk. That's my medal stand.
Again, incredibly tiny sample size. But I'll play along: 1.) Husso (Yep, I'm basing this off one start); 2. Barbashev (not that he's been bad in the past, but he's been really good so far); 3.) Walman
I used to be pretty good on this in the NFL, but haven't mastered it in the NHL. I'm gonna go 3 years, $15 million? ($5 million AAV)
True. At least in terms of the forwards.
Don't know about great, but I don't think he's reached his ceiling. I've only watched small chunks of their games, but still needs to be more consistent on defense and zone exits to take the next step. At least that's how he left it in ST. Louis.
I believe Binnington (Canada) and Faulk (USA) are on their respective countries' "long lists. Obviously O'Reilly would have to be a strong candidate for Canada. Krug for team USA. I would think Tarasenko (if he keeps playing like he has) and Buchnevich for Russia. I've even seen Barbashev's name come up in one projection for Russia. Who else? Maybe Parayko for Canada? Not saying they'll all make it, but they all could be candidates.
Not really. But that wouldn't be a bad story idea if we were back to the days when we could get one-on-one interviews with players.
This is at least the third mention of this story. I guess I'm going to have to find the time to read it at some point. That's wild if that's the case. On a much smaller scale, I was told that when the Rams were in St. Louis, Kroenke gave all Rams employees a free membership card to Sam's Club. But when he found out they weren't using them much - or at least not spending that much money with them - he took the cards back!
OK, just a few minutes left in the chat. If I don't get another question or two, I might have to answer another Roy Hobbs question. Now's your chance.
I do not. Just not enough time in the day.
I'll give you a medal stand: 1.) Playing better with big leads; 2.) Limiting opponents' shots on goal; 3.) Deferring less on shots.
Hah! With your blessing - and only with your blessing - I'll answer one more.
I don't think Krug is going anywhere. No need to rush Perunovich up at this point.
OK, that's it for today. Thanks to one and all. Until next time. . . .
