Benn is on his way out.
Flyers would be open to acquiring a backup.
We might end up waiting to try our hand at free agency, but if you have a cheaper, competent backup, lemme know. We have lots of picks/prospects that can be used.

In my case the previous GM left me without a first round pick for two years, no prospects, and only three usable players (Giroux, Couture, and Luongo). I'm sure an experienced GM could have turned the team around, but as someone new to the game it took me a couple seasons to develop my plan and begin to act on it.
These philosophical debates come up every off-season it seems.
I think it also depends on why each person plays the game. I love the draft, it is my favorite part of the game. I also love tracking prospects. So I have always made sure I have a lot of picks and a lot of prospects.
Others play the game to try and find the magical combination of players in the sim to win the season.
We all have different reasons, and it would be hypocritical of me to tell others how to manage their teams.
Ultimately what I love about the game is the relationship between supply and demand and how to turn that to your advantage.
The fact that this off-season all of a sudden supply of good veteran players seems high and demand seems really low doesn't bother me, it just makes the game even more interesting as now we all have to figure out how to manage to that reality. The market (your other GMs) ultimately decides the value of players not the GM trading that player.

The game is always changing.

I’ll toss this out there. Agree this is the best offseason I’ve ever seen for value on solid veteran players. But the Cheese rule has just become really restricting. I could have gotten Ovechkin if I really wanted but one of the reasons I stayed away was because if I did the deal with all $, I am handcuffed all of a sudden for everything else I try to do because I wouldn’t be able to take on anymore cash.

Cash is king. Manage it wisely.

Griffen Reinhart, not looking for the 1st and 2 seconds the oilers paid... but would take a single pick (4th?) for him if anyone thinks he can bounce back with Vegas.

Wild are taking offers on Tyson Barrie (who had a terrific season and will re-rate up) and Drew Doughty.
I can send some but certainly not all cap depending on the deal.

8th Overall - Traded today?

11th overall has been traded leaving me with just 8th overall left.

It is currently involved in a couple of different trade talks and I expect it to be traded today. If you are interested in the 8th pick, get an offer in today.

I would like to get back into the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the draft. Looking to move prospects for picks ideally.
