I could see the Flames trading Bouma and Vegas taking Stajan.

Well...Nevada is 'The Silver State' so I think they'd go with that.

Well, Nevada is the 'Silver State', so I can see Silver Knights working.

Yeah - based on that Adidas teaser Silver Knights seems like a good bet.

Also from that teaser it seems pretty clear that the logo will be a knights helmet with the face shield making a V.

Silver Knights is definitely the best out of those options.

I would have preferred Black Knights personally. Even Neon Knights for the colour options.

What? No. MAF? Pittsburgh would love someone to take him off their hands.

Matt Murray is the heir apparent and hes much cheaper and under contract.

Which of those guys isnt going to be available? Sbisa? Bouma?

Dont forget, Vegas still has to hit the Cap Floor.

I think the common belief is MAF won't waive his NMC, so Pittsburgh will be forced to keep him.

MAF has a no movement clause, he is waiving that why exactly? Not like he could force them to buy him out, bank a bunch of dough from the Pens and sign wherever he wishes. Why would the Ducks expose Silf? They can just buy out Bieska instead. Brodin is probably the 2nd best overall D man on the Wild, why are they exposing him?

Yeah I was going to have him on too. Other guys could work as well on the team like Byfuglien, Crawford, etc.

Just a nice 'off the board' pick.
'Space Coyotes'

Ok there's no NHL team called the Space Coyotes, there probably never will be, I don't think I like hockey anymore. Thanks for ruining hockey Locke.

My money's on Fleury getting traded before the expansion draft. He has a limited NTC. According to Cap Friendly, he has to provide a list of 18 teams to which he can be traded.

As of today, Buffalo, Calgary, and Philadelphia don't have an NHL goalie signed for next season. There are probably a few other teams who would do a goalie swap with Pittsburgh to upgrade to Fleury.

I fully expect something around MAF to Dallas for Niemi + before too long.
