Seattle

Recommended Posts

Just got reading The Hockey News. Seattle will have the same draft like LV. So who do we keep? I know a year away just for fun.

Protect:

 

Hart 

 

Giroux

Patrick

Konecny

Couturier

Lindblom

Vorobyev

Rubtsov

 

Ivan

Sanheim

Ghost 

 

Not sure if they will have to protect Myers if they do then Ghost will be the odd man out.

 

But they could more than likely work out some trades with Seattle to not take certain players.

 

And i believe they are required to expose 10% of their team salary which Jake and JVR's salary will come in handy.

 

I may have missed over looked something.

I really hope Fletch gets some good trades in rather than lose talent away for nothing. Somehow I doubt he'll make the truly impactful ones we probably need though. 

 

Some options for them (the save eight route):

 

Giroux

Couturier

TK

Patrick

 

Provorov

Sanheim

Ghost

Myers

 

Hart

 

Hopefully Fletch would have the good sense to trade away Voracek before Seattle plucks him. I do think we could get a very nice return for him in a trade. Assuming he would, JVR would seem the most likely candidate to go, which I'm fine with. If somehow Fletch can trade both of those guys, I figure we'd probably lose Lindblom or Gudas. Losing Lindblom would suck, but there's only so much we can do.

 

The seven and three split (imo the most likely scenario barring a trade right now):

 

Giroux

Couturier

TK

Patrick

Voracek

Lindblom

JVR

 

Provorov

Sanheim

Ghost

 

Hart

 

If Myers shows some serious promise in the next bit, I would probably dangle Ghost in a trade and keep Myers instead. I think Sanheim will be better, and I'd rather see what Myers can become before we lose him. If the above list is saved, I can see Seattle taking a flier on Myers. If they need depth, Laughton could be their pick here as well. This list is pretty much what I expect will be kept honestly. My guess is Myers or Laughton will be lost to the draft.

 

It would also be possible to dangle either Voracek or JVR and keep Laughton, but I don't know that Fletch will go for that. Laughton is a solid depth player, but he's nothing more than that. As much as Voracek and JVR are not my favs, we don't currently have other players to replace them in the top six (aside from a bunch of essentially unproven prospects from much weaker leagues). If he goes this route, I'd much rather he trade whichever of the two he's not going to protect. Again, get something for em at least.

See the catch here I think is about exposing 10% of your salary so Jake may be needed for that Jake and JVR together would make up what 15mill+ on a 75 mill cap. The will need another good contract to make that work.

 

So unfortunately Jake needs to stay to make it work.

 

Unless you have another bloated contract to throw in there.

I didn't know there was such a rule. How does it work exactly?

I think IIRC you have expose at least 10% of your total cap expenditure.

 

Maybe someone here can verify that.

Don't make trades in fear of losing a player for nothing during the expansion draft. You're going to lose a player no matter what. Accept it. Make a deal with Seattle directly if you really have to save someone, but you're more likely to hurt yourself than help if you trade players for the sake of not losing them for nothing.

 

If it's a hockey trade that somehow nets you a player that's exempt, that's something else entirely.

The real question I have is guys like Frost and anyone else who makes the team out of camp next fall.  They will technically have completed two years of pro hockey at that point.  Are they still automatically protected or do the Flyers have to use a protection spot for them?  I forget how that works.  It's different for position players than it is for goalies.  I think position players require more actual NHL games than goalies do?

 

I wouldn't worry about Rubstov and probably not Vorobyev because I expect that they will sign someone this off season that we'll want to protect more.

 

I'm still not convinced Ghost is going to be a Flyer by then and either way, it is concievable that Myers may earn his spot.  No matter what, if nothing changes too drastically on the roster, the FLyers are almost 100% going to lose a defenseman.

 

It will either be Ghost, Myers, Morin or a vet they might sign between then and now (like Tyler Myers).  

 

It's possible Sandstrom or even Ustimenko may prove themselves irresistible over the next two years, but if I'm betting, my guess is neither will see enough NHL time to make them more desirable than one of the D men the flyers will be unable to protect at that point.

No those guys will be safe Frost and the ones still in juniors this year.

 

Rubtsov and Vorobyev won't be safe.

 

But there will be some that get exposed.

I'm honestly not worried about Jake.  He will be 31-32 with 3 years left on an $8.5 million contract.  If he's still producing well enough for Seattle to take him, there will be other forwards available via Free agency, but with any luck, the Flyers would be shifting his salary to a long term deal for Hart or Provo or Sanheim.

 

I'm one of the few people on this board who actually don't want Jake traded, but it's my hope that with the cap space available between now and then, Fletcher will have brought in a Stone and or Panarin.

 

If it comes to it, on 7/1/21, Fletcher (if he's still around) could be looking at signing a 28 year old UFA Landeskog.
