Welcome to the Thursday Prospect Ramblings. This week I am going to go through the contract situations of teams in the Central to see how many openings they have, where they have openings, and what prospect is most likely to take that spot (again, yay for Capfriendly). I am still assuming the rosters are “as is”, and are how the highlighted teams will start the 2020-2021 season.


Here was last week’s look at the Pacific Division, and it is pretty hilarious how I though I could do East and West in separate weeks only


Also, my #GoodTweet of the week:







Chicago Blackhawks



  • 11 one-way contracts; Eight $1M or above, three are below $1M, and two UFAs in 2021
    • Dylan Strome will be one-way as he is currently unsigned
    • Brandon Pirri and John Quenneville are one-way contracts but both will likely stay in the AH
