Rangers Sign Lindell And Will Trade Gibson
May 16, 2019
The New York Rangers signed young D Esa Lindell to a six year deal at a 5.8m AAV. Lindell is part of the Rangers D Big 3 with Jones and Chabot.

Top young G John Gibson will likely be dealt, as the Rangers have Jaroslav Halak and three top young goalies coming into their own; Jordan Binnington, Carter Hart and AHL All-Star Kaapo Kahkonen. Unfortunately, even with his top ratings and upside, Gibson is the odd-man out.

The Rangers two 1st rounders are available. I believe they're around ~9th and ~28th respectively. Unless we can get into the top two slots, we'll likely trade down and/or out for next year's draft.

The Rangers biggest roster need is a top C and possibly a solid top 4 D. We're all ears and have solid assets to move.
Avalanche Bury The League
May 12, 2019
Congrats to the Colorado Avalanche and GM Dennis Puklic on winning the 2019 WEHL Stanley Cup! Dennis built a fantastic, well-balanced team with depth in every position. Not only is Colorado an elite team now, but their future looks bright. Led by electric young stars like David Pastrnak, Mathew Barzal, Vincent Trochek, and Jonathan Drouin, they are poised to compete for many years to come.

____________

In other news... the Arizona Coyotes have been very active leading up to the offseason, pushing to line up major deals before the draft. The revised trade block includes:

Travis Hamonic (D) - High-DF defender and fixture on the penalty kill. At cap hit of only $3.86M, he should be an affordable option to almost every competitive team in the league.

Miles Wood (F) - Young winger with one of the league's highest SK ratings and on the cusp of breaking out. Perfect pickup for a team 1-2 years out.

Drew Doughty (D) - Elite defender for his entire career. The Coyotes are willing to absorb cap dumps to ensure a fair return, given Doughty's contract.

Ilya Kovalchuk (F) - Yours for the best offer.

James Reimer (G) - Yours for the best offer.

Josh Mahura (D) - Top prospect (2016 draftee) who has seen NHL action and is ready to make the jump. Coyotes are only offering him because they have a surplus of young defenders.

Arizona is primarily looking for picks or prospects for all of the above but will also accept cash. Deals may include roster players but this is unlikely due to cap restraints.
The Avs Are The 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Champions
Colorado Avalanche
May 09, 2019
The Avs have fought a tough battle and have prevailed as the Stanley Cup Champions. The Avs last won the Stanley Cup back in 2011-2012 Giving GM Dennis 2 Stanley Cups. GM Dennis has said he is very happy with this win; it is the hardest championship to win with so many great teams and GM’s in the league. The Avs went through the rebuild process only keeping 2 core players in captain Steven Stamkos and veteran defenseman Ryan Suter. Through draft and trades was able to create a team with depth and scoring ability. It was a tough high scoring series with the Islanders which came down to game 7 in the Barclay Center. The game was tied in the 3rd and rookie star Mathew Barzal scored the winner at 18:52. GM Dennis is very proud of his team they fought hard through each round and can now enjoy the moment of everything the went through. GM Dennis wants to Congratulate the New York Islanders and GM Robin Park for the season and playoff run they had. Also want to congratulate the league and all the GMs that make this the best league out there. Also want to thank Jeff, Martin, Scott and Andrew for running and continuing the league and all the hard work they have put in for this year and past years. Its time for the Avs to celebrate and take a vacation before they start reviewing their team for the upcoming season so that they can try and defend the Stanley Cup as there will be many teams trying to knock them off. Great season for everyone and good luck to all for the upcoming draft.
