  1. The Fraser trade actually crossed my mind just before the playoffs started and I looked up Hartkanen, seen that he had a pretty good year in the KHL but couldnt find anything on if he planed on returning to north America, hope he does that will be a steal of a deal for Fraser.

    • He is not strong enough on the smaller NHL ice. Will never pan out at the NHL level.
