    • Some potential targets for pick 73 - Matthias Havelid, Tomas Hamara, Carter Mazur, Josh Bloom, Devin Kaplan, Ryan Greene, Julian Lutz, Jack Devine, Ludwig Persson, Cruz Lucius, Nicholas Moldenhauer.

      I am assuming Luneau, Casey, Sapovaliv, Goyette, Beck, Bystedt, Pickering, Zhilkin, Ingram are for sure gone.

      • Gavin Hayes and Michael Buchinger look interesting for that range too. Cam Lund? Topi Ronni? Aleksanteri Kaskimaki? Jordan Dumais?

        Could Ty Nelson or Jani Nyman fall? Probably not.

          • Woah. This is an interesting one. I've been raving about Odelius almost never making a mistake. Guess who steps up and forces the turnover on him here:

            • Looked a little bit further still into McConnell-Barker's numbers throughout the year, and took a look at Hayes too. A few interesting tidbits.

              I mentioned Barker upped his p/g from 0.64 prior to Jan 25, to 0.8125 for the rest of the season, but further to that, he actually had 17 points in the final 17 games. Not such a great playoffs and I don't have any explanation for that but hoping he was just being used in more of a checking/shutdown role.

              Hayes went pointless for the first 11 games of the season, before suddenly exploding for 14 in the next 11, and then cooling off again. But still, that's 0.91 p/g after the first 11. His playoffs were even more interesting. He again went pointless for the first 6 games of playoffs, before putting up one assist in game 7, then busting out for 8 in 6 the following series, and then just 3 in 6 in the 3rd round.

              • Cross Mazar, Tverberg, Ostapchuk, Dickinson, Bloom, Robertson off the list. Johansson, Melanson, Kos made it through but aren't old enough to sign so we'll just have to keep an eye out for next year. This leaves us with still a lot of names to consider. Of the drafted players who went unsigned, the most noteworthy names were re-drafted (Jack Thompson and Justin Sourdif), but Mitch Miller is interesting. So we still have a lot of names to consider offering contract to. The ones I am most excited about are Cicek, Nystrom, Salminen, Cederqvist, Fanti. I'll go through the rest of the names in the coming days here, but I feel like every one of them could be worth offering a contract.

                Nick Cicek (UFA)

                Joel Nystrom (2002)

                Trenton Bliss (UFA)

                Kyle Jackson (2002)

                Stephen Halliday (2002)

                Jordan Frasca (UFA)

                Lucas Edmonds (UFA)

                Jet Greaves (UFA)

                Arshdeep Bains (2002)

                Benjamin King (2002)

                Oskari Salminen (UFA)

                Calle Sjalin (UFA)

                Linus Oberg (UFA)

                Filip Cederqvist (UFA)

                Ryan Fanti (UFA)

                Lukas Sillinger (UFA)

                Viktor Lodin (UFA)

                Albert Sjoberg (2002)

                • Tried to narrow down the list a bit further. Got it to 13. Tried to come up with some rough estimates of what each might require. Add Sjalin to the group I'm most excited about. And actually bump him ahead of Nystrom. Lodin isn't far behind.

                  Joel Nystrom (2002) - 925k

                  Kyle Jackson (2002) - Where does he get drafted IRL? Same goes for the next three. 750k?

                  Stephen Halliday (2002) - 775k

                  Lucas Edmonds (UFA) - 750k

                    Actually scratch Sillinger for now. Would prefer players already owned by NHL teams. Looking through NCAA again, there's actually some really intriguing lower key options: Declan Carlile, Andre Lee, Noah Beck, Matteo Costantini and Matthew Stienburg. Gonna overpay a little for Beck because we need D in the system, and especially for Carlile because Tampa. I'm sure there will be a lot of teams in on Carlile.

                      Add Cole Reinhart, Oskar Back, Cam Berg. I'm actually on the fence about Berg and Costantini right now. They're drafted sure but stats look solid yet unspectacular.

                      Stienburg is very intriguing to me. Former 3rd round pick, owned by Colorado. Jumped straight from high school hockey to NCAA so the weak freshman campaign is very excusable. Then Cornell was one of the few teams to shut down completely for covid, and now he was a p/g, albeit already 21.

                      • I guess I'll leave off Costantini and Berg for now. Still trying to whittle the numbers down. Those two plus Frasca and Sillinger will be the first guys I circle back to if I feel we weren't able to add enough bodies to the system first go-around. We'll have about 10 free contract spots to use. I'd like to add at least 5, and no more than 7 or 8.

                        • Sharks top 20 prospects (with equivalent draft pick value) :

                          Tier I (top 5 OA)
                          1. William Eklund

                          Tier II (top 15 OA)
                          2. Liam Ohgren
                          3. Fyodor Svechkov

                          Tier III (1st round)

                          4. Calle Odelius
                          5. Sasha Chmelevski
                          6. Arvid Soderblom
                          7. Drew O'Connor
                          8. Ville Koivunen
                          9. Reilly Walsh
                          10. Roby Jarventie

                          Tier IV (2nd-3rd round)
                          11. Ben McCartney
                          12. Bryce McConnell-Barker
                          13. Ian Mitchell
                          14. Nolan Allan
                          15. Gavin Hayes

                          Tier V (4th or later)
                          16. Jonathan Aspirot
                          17. Vadim Zherenko
                          18. Hunter Skinner
                          19. Hunter Shepard
                          20. Topias Vilen

                          That top 15 is very strong. Just comparing against when I used to do NHL team rankings, this is a pretty exceptional group. So with free agency we're mainly looking to bolster the bottom quarter of the list, and if we can land one or two in tier IV that would be enormous.

                          • Ok I told CBJ and DET that we would wait to see how UFA plays out before making any decisions on Wheeler or Crosby. Looking at our lineup right now we have 21 players on the roster and 14.685 in cap space. A full cohort of 8 regular defensemen. Still waiting for final confirmation on the Bob signing but seems done at 6.25. Add that and Eklund's 3.775 brings us down to 4.66 with a full 23 man roster. To be conservative lets assume it's Chmelevski and his 0.685 we have to send down if we add a player at UFA, not giving us much relief... 4.66+0.685=5.345. So conceivably we could offer Granlund 5.25, but that leaves us extremely little breathing room. I still think Iafallo and Coyle are fairly interesting cheaper options.

                            But alternatively, if we do the Vrana/Tatar deal, take that 5.345+2.75=8.095, and now we have something to work with. To be sure we are on the safe side, I take the difference from Chmelevski to Vesey (in case for some reason we need to call up Vesey over Chmelevski), which is 0.365, and subtract from 8.095, giving 7.73, and that's the number I'd be comfortable giving Forsberg/Giroux/Duchene/Bergeron/Pavelski. Not sure exactly what it's going to take or what we should offer value-wise, but for our cap structure going into next season, that's where we're at.
