@Fish Head @maximus_asinus I'm trying to sell on (Erik) Johnson's upside playing on a strong offense. I think I can get Josi with that. Granlund for Koivu is a harder sell.

okay so I turned Oshie and Gardiner into Hedman and Koivu. Now I want to turn Koivu and Johnson into Granlund and Josi. Is that a fair offer or am I asking for too much?

I need a quick answer for knowledgeable ESPN fantasy users. I had a trade accepted but it won't be processed until 8 PM EST. If I dress and lock in the traded players, will their stats for the night count towards me even if the trade is processed before their respective games end?

Tarasenko or Koivu for my fantasy pool? I'm about to make the decision.

@vinoa @loomx @maximus_asinus my draft had Monahan, Kreider, Reilly Smith, and Granlund available late. I think they'll all break out this year. Hence why I drafted two of them and thinking of a third.

@loomx @maximus_asinus I was also leaning towards Tarasenko, wasn't sure if he was completely healthy in regards to his concussion last year though.

@vinoa @maximus_asinus I like Gardiner but I'm upgrading to a guy who plays top pairing and top PP. Gardiner might get that down the road, but I feel Franson and Phaneuf will have that honor all season.

need quick feedback. I needed help on my fantasy blue line so I dealt Gardiner and Oshie out for Koivu and Hedman. I'm likely to drop Koivu once the trade goes through but I need to decide if I should take Tarasenko, Granlund, Reilly Smith, or keep Koivu. What would you guys do?

@sniperstar @maximus_asinus thanks, I like him a lot and I think his stats will only improve with the better team infront of him.

My question marks are Oshie and my D core. J. Schwartz is still available and I wonder if I should pick him up instead.

This is my fantasy team for the work pool. What do you guys think? Weak links?

FWD: C. Perry, M. Duchene, T. Hall, K. Okposo, R. Johansen, S. Monahan, T.J. Oshie, C. Krieder, K. Turris

DEF: A. Pietrangelo, C. Fowler, J. Carlson, J. Gardiner, E. Johnson

GOAL: S. Bobrovsky, K. Lehtonen

in my work pool I picked Monahan, but Brayden Schenn is available. I like both but not 100% Monahan can put up another 20 goal campaign. What do you guys think?

@dlb Mad @maximus_asinus there was a lot of talk about Granberg during a press conference this summer which made it sound like he was a shoe in for the 6-7 spot. That is why I couunted 8.

@Ensign @Mind Bomb Halak would be a great late round pick. Khubodin (sp?) will probably outplay Ward for starter.

@Hmmm @maximus_asinus I suppose

I was shocked when I heard he was invited though, we're talking about giving young guys a chance, then we sign a proven NHLer and now the D-core looks impossible to crack. Not a bad thing I suppose...

what is going to happen with Tallinder? I don't think the Leafs will sign him, regardless of how he performs in preseason. With him we have 8 defensemen going into the season.

@Cloud09 @Dangle_My_Berries I also think the player models look disturbing. Faces look like rubber masks, it is quite jarring. Have you seen facial expressions? I wonder if the artist responsible has seen emotion before.

@Cloud09 @Dangle_My_Berries the commentators always feel like they're 2 steps behind the play. Once the games reaches a level where they are acting and not reacting to the play is when I buy the game.

@TheCanucksnaphook I agree with you, it does break up the conversation. Mashup chat should be visible from every article. If the writers are looking for focused feedback then there should be a method to either filter comments, or a way to attach comments directly to the article. Having multiple pages with different conversations is disjointed, and to a new or casual reader a little confusing.

@Cameron19 @Pent_House @maximus_asinus @ingy56 this is my thinking as well. Leafs would be smart to move Franson now before losing him next summer. We could get a good piece coming back.

I'm not sure how it would work cap wise, but would anyone trade Franson to Philly for L. Schenn + 3rd? I think he'd be a decent 3 pairing guy who could move up the lineup.

@MaxwellHowe but what does that mean? I interpret that as Kadri is more likely to pass off to Lupul when they're together, and when they're not together Lupul is "looked off" because there is a better shooter (Kessel) on the ice.

I can't help but compare the hiring of Dubas to the plot to Moneyball. We hired an advanced stat guy to find good players flying under the radar.
