Ted Kulfan Says Evan Bouchard To The Wings In A Mock Draft

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

6. Detroit Red Wings: Evan Bouchard, D, London (OHL). The Wings need someone like this – a defenseman with size, ability at both ends of the ice, and character. But if Hughes is still here, it's going to be a difficult choice.

Will The Philadelphia Flyers Move Wayne Simmonds?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

While exploring trade options for the Minnesota Wild, Michael Russo of the Athletic wrote, according to multiple sources, "the Flyers are gearing to potentially trade ."

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, however, told the Cherry Hill Courier-Post he's looking to add to his roster this off-season. “There’s 30 other teams trying to win and we’re trying to win,” he said. “We gotta try a little bit harder in every area.

“We’d love to add a top player whether it be free agency or trade. We’ll try. If we can’t, we can’t and we’ll move forward.”

Jimmy Devellano Before The Draft

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

via Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

“We’re now where the Leafs were three or four years ago,” Wings’ senior vice-president Jim Devellano acknowledged. “We’re a team badly in need of a rebuild. We realize it’s not an accident we’re picking sixth. Obviously, we hope to get a player who can make it in a year or two. And we have Vegas’ pick at 30th and 11 picks in the seven rounds.

“It’s what the Leafs did a couple of years ago (strip down the roster for picks). We’ve kind of copied that and hope we can get some players. Toronto is drafting 25th, so whatever they do in Dallas, it ain’t helping them for three or four years. They know that.”

What Did The Ottawa Senators Receive In The Mike Hoffman Trade?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

So, what do we make of the Ottawa Senators exchanging a speedy, highly-talented, but largely one-dimensional high-scoring winger for a speedy, moderately-talented, but largely one-dimensional average-scoring winger?

Well, Senators general manager Pierre Dorion could have done a lot worse, considering the circumstances.

If we go by Mikkel Boedker’s track record, he’ll probably finish with between 13 and 20 goals and with between 30 and 40 points in the 2018-19 National Hockey League season.

We can also expect many extended goal-scoring slumps. Last season alone, he had droughts of nine games, eight games, 12 games and 10 games without a goal.

In very simplistic terms, Boedker is Mike Hoffman-Lite. Out goes a first-line/second-line winger, in comes a second-line/third-line winger.
