Eichel:
Quote:
My guesses right now are some combination of Anaheim, Calgary, Minnesota and others I’m probably missing. Teammate Eric Engels reported Sunday he doesn’t think it will be Montreal. From what I’ve heard, the Canadiens have engaged, but not anywhere near a point Buffalo would say yes. The Rangers and Sabres have not been close in their conversations.

Goalies:
Quote:
• If Braden Holtby isn’t traded, does he get bought out by Vancouver?

• Does Martin Jones get a new start somewhere, assuming a buyout from San Jose?

• Is Carolina’s next starter Antti Raanta, Frederik Andersen or someone else? (A few teams suspect the analytics-inclined Hurricanes love Raanta.)

• Where does Darcy Kuemper end up?

• What does Vegas do? There were rumblings they had a move for someone that fell through. I thought it might be Robin Lehner to New Jersey or Marc-Andre Fleury to Chicago. I also wondered Detroit before the Red Wings traded for Alex Nedeljkovic, but I’m not expecting Steve Yzerman to reveal much.

• What is Colorado’s limit with Philipp Grubauer? The highest recent UFA goalie deal was Jordan Binnington’s 6x6, and it’s believed Grubauer's ask was somewhere near there — but I don’t believe the Avalanche would go there. Is there a happy medium?

• What’s the market for Linus Ullmark?
anyone think Jones would be interesting as a cheap backup?

speculation Zadarov might not be qualified after Chicago acquired Jones and is trying to move Z

and a bunch of predictions on free agents and trades

Martin Jones would be a interesting bet for a low cost backup, would probably be able to get a decent AAV at low term and his history with the city and Hitmen might make it a great fit.

Seems like we're in on Eichel one day and out on him the next then back in on him the following day again.

Man Zadarov is a big body good for hundreds of hits a year… another interesting player to look at if he becomes available though I think he has warts to his game for sure and can be a giveaway machine at times.

Hopefully they sign Johnny so we can focus on trade and signings.

This is our time!

I feel it in my fingers! I feel it in my toes! Jack Eichel is all around me! And so the feeling grows…

It’s written in the wind, it’s everywhere I go.

So if you really love the Calgary Flames, c’mon and get Jack Eichel!

You know I love Jack Eichel, I always will. My mind’s made up the way that I feel. There’s no beginning, there’ll be no end… because on Jack Eichel, you can depend!

Martin Jones has had an .896 SP for three straight years. He shouldn't be counted on for anything at this point.

I'd be looking at Ullmark. His real only shots at #1 is Buffalo. Maybe NJ.

But he could be a power back up behind Markstrom and I feel could be a Jennings trophy tandem.

Get Eichel.

Don't get Jones. There will be many better backups available. Jones would be a good third-stringer but he's not a backup right now.

If you can get Eichel without giving up Lindholm and Gaudreau, this team could go on a run.

I also get the feeling that Tre might pull off another big one and get Eichel. It’s wishful thinking, for sure. At the very least, Treliving wants Eichel because he’s in on Eichel some days and out on Eichel other days.

I’m fine with Tre giving up Tkachuk, Gaudreau or Monahan, but I’d really like to see the Flames keep Lindholm for that 1-2 punch at centre.

Id try a 2 year deal with Halak. As long as its 1.5 mil or so.

It’ll end up being Rittich for a mill or 1.25 I bet.

It's time for the Tre and the Flames to bite the bullet and get that true #1 center we've been searching for the last 20+ years. Get Eichel. Do it. Do it now.

I don't know what fancy stats say, but Zadorov would be pretty interesting. I love the style he plays, and I'm sure he and Lucic could bury the hatchet.
