Not sure what Francis strategy is here. It’s like you know, all these great and advantageous expansion draft rules? Fuck them, we’re going old school and draft fringe NHLers.
Must ge some side deal or trade already in place. That roster is horrible so far.
Exactly. I understand not wanting to give other team freebies and cap relieves but some of these pick, are borderline wasted compared to what could have been taken. That’s why I’m saying there is either some side deals we don’t know, or Francis is horrible.There is a theme, they mostly favor youth, physicality and work ethic. They want a young, hard working, tough to play against them. But boy it's short on talent, especially given what was available.
