Knicks fan, eh? 😜

I think we pretty much all agree that if Botterill doesn't bring in a legit 2C, at least, he's whiffed hard. But let's see him whiff before spazzing.

Exactly. It’s two hours into free agency and I like what they’ve done so far. Let everyone fill their cap space, grab value guys before the others are ready to work on that part of their roster.

Two top six forwards are coming.

I agree but our #2 Center is going to be a veteran FA bandaid

We didn’t grab any value guys. Just because they signed $700K deals doesn’t mean they’re “value.” It just means they’re not NHL players.

I've felt right along any significant moves will be by trade route.

Value AHL guys, I guess.

Dea (C), Gilmour (D), Hammond (G)

Even then they’re not value for the AHL since they’re getting paid more than most AHL players.

Let's hope.

Really thought they'd fill one of the 2 slots that need to be filled on the 2nd line via FA and the other by trade.  Hoping Vesey isn't one of those 2.

Botterill mentioned that Sheary can play both Wings 

So, the 3rd line would be Vesey - Mittelstadt - Sheary?

I think Vesey is the winger. The only big trade chip is Risto so I'm guessing he's sent out for the 2C if he's moved. Botterill said Top 9 re: Vesey, so..

Afraid you might be right.

Agree. I hope Botterill takes his time trades don't need to be made now.

Pittsburgh courted Vesey? Didn't know that.

I can't wait to get a Vesey jersey.

Didn’t u already have one from the last go around.

I’ll say this for Jbot.  He was able to do something TM desperately wanted but couldn’t get done; ...... he got Vesey to become a Sabre.

Does this mean Vesey can play both sides like them? Or am I reading that wrong.

So based on the bottom quote he was trying to fill a specific need with Vesey/who they were pursuing in FA, and we knew he was looking for a top-6 C and W, right? So Vesey is probably that winger.
