CORY SCHNEIDER?

This is going in a strange direction this morning. .931EV SP last season ranking him 9th in the entire NHL. Huh.

dreger oilersI’m not certain this is the item on the Oilers ‘to do’ list that should be ranked first. How big is the gap between Schneider and Dubnyk? IS THERE a gap between them? Vancouver selects 24th overall.

    The more i read on Sean Monahan, the more I’d prefer VN or EL.Maybe even Nurse?

    Conclusion

    There’s some minor red flags when it comes to Sean Monahan: he is a older than most of his draft eligible peers, he’s not an explosive skater or dominant offensive talent and his ES/PP points splits this year are worrying.

    On the other hand, he’s widely considered the best forward available out of the OHL this season and probably would have been top-end draft pick even if he was available in 2012. His combination of size, strength and hockey IQ is a good one and reminiscent of some of the better two-way players who have been picked in the top-10 recently.

    He’s 51 days older than Lindholm. I prefer Lindholm but don’t find birthdays to be a compelling argument, if its between the two centres.

    Gordies Elbow: Flip a goalie to Philly for Coburn and something else?

    Let’s say Schneid comes to EDM; DD goes to PHI; we still need a number 2 and 3 G after all that.

    Chasing number 1s is a complete waste of time and an insult to DD. Time better spent finding some D, 2 and 3 Gs and a stud 2nd line winger… plus all those depth guys we need.

    other items on the agenda MacT. Stop starring at boobs.

    Matt Duchene’s agent Pat Brisson met with Avs’ front office today re: contract extension. Dialogue will continue…

    Things could be interesting in Avs land if they take McK… C depth x∞…

    Duch is going to want RR kind of cake, no?

    Lowetide: Makes sense. I don’t know why they are so focused on goaltending.

    If I had to guess it would be that MacT knows that the D will at best be average next season and he wants a security blanket in net. He could lose a lot of the benefit of his off season acquisitions if Dubnyk regresses next season, which is entirely possible (goalies are wierd).

    A 1A/1B goalies set up as opposed to the traditional starter/backup set up not only mitigates the risk of a Dubnyk regression, but the lesser of the two can always be flipped for a decent return in the future – given the hunger for starting goalies in NHL there is every chance that whatever assets are expended to get a guy like Schneider can be largely recouped (if not improved) by moving on one of Dubnyk/Schneider at the trade deadline, or next offseason.

    The Avalanche will just trade Paul Stastny and each some salary if necessary. Av’s will go with Duschene, O’Reilly, and MacKinnon.

    I think that is right, but the C depth will be off the charts for a blink there.

    But don’t discount the blood in the water. Rumor was that after RR held out Duch was mighty pissed about it and about the pay discrepancy…

    That team was exploding with trouble last year and the “room” was disinterested and not making merry.

    Which makes #7 and a prospect one hell of an overpay. I like Schneider; him and DD would be a great tandem, but G is not the most pressing need on this team, and to blow such a bullet on a transaction would be utter folly – which is why MacT will surely tell Gillis “No thanks”.
