Rookie draft August 15th


I have to move the draft out to Sunday, August 15th at 12 noon EST as my wife and I are going back to Saskatchewan for the home opener for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and visiting the family.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I will also have the draft package out this week. I am putting it together now

Roster spreadsheet

Hey guys,

Congrats to Derek for winning this year’s Conover Cup. I will not hear the end of this now that he has won and I am still chasing my first one.
Please review your roster and advise of any discrepancy.

I have added more data in the Player Registry tab (formerly the Alpha list) This extra data will help me keep track of players.

Players on the oysters page have been color coded as follows.
Players with a grey background are the ones who are now Q players as they played 30 GP as a skater or 15 GP as a goalie.
Players with a blue background are players who are eligible to be a QR player. You can choose up to 2 players. These players moved do not have to be countred in getting your roster to 32 players.
Players with a yellow background have announced their retirement from the NHL.
Please advise who your 2 QR players are.
Cutdown day is July 1, this will allow you time to work out a trade instead of cutting players for nothing. All cut players go in the carded FA draft.

Nelson looking to move Dylan Larkin

o I need something to get me over the hump, I am thinking a game breaking top 6 forward.
The best thing I have to dangle is 24 year old 1st line center on an off season Dylan Larkin. He was a part of why I took this roster but he may not be part of the solution after being through so many losing season in Nelson early in his career a change of scenery may be just what he needs to take that next step. He would not be easy to move but for the right piece that I think can get me over the top he is available. 24  years old and and #1 center.
For you Swedofiles out there, rookie sensation Nils Hoglander could be moved for the right piece as well.
Top pairing d-man Connor Murphy 22 minute muncher and just hitting his peak at 27 years old.
Veteran tough d’man Josh Manson will not play for me so should get a chance elsewhere.
Carson Soucy depth depth d’man if you need a solid #6/7 guy.
Sonny Milano 24 years old just having trouble getting into games so needs a new home.
Dylan Sykura 25 years old who may have a home in Vegas with a great final game with 2 goals, despite not being play off ready yet he showed he can score in a small sample size.
Matt Highmore 25 year old that finished the season well once given a chance with better players in Vancouver, he could be ready for the next step next year, or could fall into a bottom 6 roll
Old James Neal was a lock for 20+ until 2 years ago, despite poor reviews was still on pace for 14 goals over 82 in Edmonton in a severly reduced role and line mate quality, may get a new start next year in Seattle after how well he did for Vegas in their expansion season…maybe
I have #23 & 59 (I believe) in the draft that can go, as well as a stocked cupboard of prospects though I would rather hold on to what I can from my past drafts that are still around.
