2017 NHL Expansion Draft

You wonder if the EDM/NYI deal (Eberle/Strome) was done before the draft and the NYI worked out all their dealings with the VGK so as to keep their other pieces in place so as to publicly protect Strome long enough to just ship him off to EDM. 

It was thought that McPhee would do his former team a favor. 

Next is a trade to Colorado or Montreal.

Technically, right now only CHI has a higher cap number than VGK!

And hokeysmokes!!! ... Look at the collection of draft picks they've acquired so far. I really believe they're going to be shopping those for a #1/#2 center come Friday and Saturday.

Chicago still has Hossa until the 2nd day of the season.

Ken Wregget was actually good though, 3rd best goalie in Penguins history after Fleury and Barrasso.

Matt Murray has a career record of 41 wins and 12 losses.  By the end of what will be his SECOND full season in the NHL, he will likely be in the top 5 winningest goalies in franchise history.  And he already owns 2 Stanley Cup rings.  

If the Penguins win 9 of the next 10 Stanley Cups with Murray in between the pipes, you'll be the one Penguins fan complaining that had Marc-Andre Fleury been there instead, they'd have won all 10.  Well, you along with DaveK...

Any goalie can win when the team in front of him plays as great as the Penguins have in each and every one of his 41 wins. Put Jeff Zatkoff back in there and they would have won those same 41 games. The thing is they aren't winning because of Murray, they're winning in spite of him.

But if Marc-Andre Fleury is in net with the exact same team playing in front of him, he's the greatest goalie of all time?

Wait they won 2 Stanley Cups because the team hates Murray? That's the dumbest !@#$ I've heard today.

Pump the brakes, cberkas.  The day's only half over...still plenty of time for something even dumber to come out of Roosevelt's keyboard!

No, the numbers show he actually does worse with the exact same team in front of him....

The same exact team in front of him but superior teams opposing them. The way the bracket worked out this year, the 1st and 2nd rounds provided the toughest opponents the Pens would have to go through on their way to the cup. They beat Columbus and Washington based on how great the goaltending was, they beat Ottawa and Nashville based on how well the rest of the team played. Look at the goal support as well as the number of shots and quality of shots that each goalie faced and it becomes very clear that it was a difference of night and day. If Murray doesn't get hurt prior to Game 1 of the 1st round the Pens get swept in the 2nd round (that is if they manage to survive the 1st round).

What do 41 regular season wins have to do with this year's playoff bracket?

I was referring to the playoffs, please try to follow along. The 41 regular season wins were mentioned in a different post.

How about YOU follow along and stop comparing apples to oranges?

Vokoun had the same team that Fleury had in front of him, Vokoun lead the Penguins to the conference finals in 2013 with the same team that Fleury had. Fleury hasn't got his team past the second round since 2009.

Please correct me if I am mistaken, but wasn't it Fleury who led the Penguins past the 2nd round in 2017? I'm pretty sure he was in net for the 2nd round series vs. Washington.

Took 8 years to get out of the second round for Fleury.

That's what happens to goalies that have underachieving teams playing in front of them, leaving them hung out to dry time and time again. Many of those 8 years they were really not even good enough to deserve a playoff berth, but Fleury managed to steal enough wins to keep them in contention year in and year out. That's what great goalies do.

But Vokoun got them to the Eastern Conference Finals, and Murray that AHL backup lead them to the Cup in back-to-back seasons.

Dave you say the same things on this profile you did on all your other ones. If you want us to believe your someone else stop saying the same things you have said over and over on your other profiles.

Can we just have a moderator check the IP's and end this stupid charade?

Vegas let Berube (Islanders pick) and Thorburn (Jets pick) hit free agency. Berube was signed by Chicago and Thorbrun was signed by St. Louis. Two picks by Vegas that could have been better players.

Grabovski will not be cleared to play for the Golden Knights.

Edit: Connor Brickley (Carolina puck) was also let go by Vegas.

Oh, boy...the folks in the Wild front office must be scrambling to find a former Gopher to sign to replace the one they just lost.  :lol:

And right on cue, they sign Kyle Rau.  Soooo predictable...
