    Nice job going through the league, Jesse. I think people are overvaluing what St Louis has done. They got older and slower and lost the better of their goalie tandem and added a locker room cancer. Ryan O’Reilly and Mike Yeo are destined for disaster. Generally, I think the positive results of Mike Yeo’s hard-ass routine are reaching their use-by date just like they did in MN. Adding O’Reilly will probably speed up that process.

    The Avs need to add secondary scoring. I’d love to get Skinner. I’d even more love to offer sheet Nylander but the GM’s have probably colluded not to do that. With extra picks in the first and third round next year, picks that will be worse than the ones they’d be required to keep (you can only use your own picks to compensate an offer sheet) and gobs of cap space, if any team were ever in the position to use an offer sheet it would be the Avs this season. They could offer Nylander up to 8.1 million for 5 years and give up their 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I’d love to see that numbers crunching little dweeb Dubas have to explain that he really couldn’t “keep them all.”

    Guys I’m starting to get a little worried. Every team in the central has improved. Including the avalanche. As time goes on we hear more and more rumours that Dallas is the front runners for Karlsson and that they are also in on Skinner. I look at falls right now and they are a comparable team to the avs. If Dallas lands Karlsson that puts the avs below them in the central. It’s no secret that the avs need secondary scoring. I understand that joe wants to give the young guys and an opportunity to play big minutes this season but something needs to happen soon. We need to add a player who can add some offence to this club. What do you guys think? Keep up the good work.

    These have been great Jesse, thanks for the good stuff. Except Nickelback has always sucked buddy. Also Rogue one is terrible. But good solo casts 🙂
