Lots of news today.
First off, the Devils 6th overall pick from the 2015 draft signing in the KHL... wowzers. Understand he hasn't projected as well as hoped, but this is still a bit shocking:
Justin Faulk could be on the verge of being traded to Anaheim:
Something to keep an eye on: there have been ongoing conversations between CAR and ANA about a Justin Faulk trade, but there are still details to be worked out (1/2)...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) September 9, 2019
Rumour is Ondrej Kase could be going the other way. Has had injury issues, but analytics people like him a lot. If he can stay healthy, Carolina could come out solidly on top:
Believe the Hurricanes have a deal in place with Anaheim for Faulk. Anaheim is not listed among his 15 preapproved teams, so it’s in Faulk’s hands now. Hurricanes have had a longstanding interest in Ondrej Kase, would be surprised if he isn’t involved.— Luke DeCock (@LukeDeCock) September 9, 2019
Zack Werenski of the Columbus Blue Jackets signs a 3 year extension:
And this just came out now, but Nikolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets could be on the block as well. From Elliott Friedman (hockey insider who works for Sportsnet):
"I don't know if it's been that close. They definitely talked with Carolina. I had someone tell me they thought it was close. I've had other people tell me it wasn't that close. But obviously it was out there... I think the lesson with the Jets is that they've got a lot of moving parts."
Exciting times indeed... now fucking sign Matt Tkachuk already!
Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
