OTT: Logan Brown
VAN: Thatcher Demko, 3rd

Ottawa gets their future goalie

Vancouver gets their C of the future

Brown is younger, the third should make up for the difference.

I'd say no from the Canucks just cause I really believe Demko will become a great goalie, and because there were a lot of concerns about Brown going into his draft year.

Sounds fairly even to me. although as a sens fan, I don't know enough about demko to consider him a future nhl starter. if you put him in training camp in the fall, would he even out play 3rd string driedger? Seems like a bit of a gamble with an asset.

What a future star Goalie for a top 6 center.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 19:26:20
Canucks wouldn't do this. Demko is the future of the canucks in net, they aren't giving that up unless they're getting a shitton in return, Demko is did better than Cory Schneider in College, that's very imressive. Demko's second half of the season was very impressive after the leap to the AHL, Next year he should be the AHL starter and potentially lead Utica to the playoffs. The Canucks organization wouldn't give up on someone like this.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 19:36:05
Omg no way from Vancouver, Demko is one of the last players Van would consider moving and has more value then Brown straight up and you have Van adding? Lol. Don't you guys have Hogberg in the SHL?

Detroit is in cap jail. Even after putting Franzen on LTIR, they still have under a mill with Athanasiou still to sign. Buffalo takes advantage and acquires speedy winger Nyquist and a overpaid Sheahan from Detroit. Nyquist immediately makes our top-6 stronger and allows Reinhart to fall into his natural position at center to create 3 strong scoring lines. Buffalo sends Detroit Girgensons whose a very solid two-way center but needs to find a way to start scoring again in a new system, a young offensive winger in Baptiste who should be in the NHL this year or next, and a offensive RHD with some upside in Nelson.
Detroit trades:
Nyquist, G
Sheahan, R

to Buffalo for:
Baptiste, N.
Nelson, C.
Girgensons, Z.

This is an interesting deal, I don't know much about Baptiste or Nelson to truly understand their values. Detroit's prospect needs is quality Centers or Defenseman because that's our biggest long-term weakness considering our depth of winger prospects.

Detroit has no need for Girgensons who is a 2-way Center who underproduced, Detroit has that already.

Now Nyquist has a NTC I believe, not sure he would waive for Buffalo while he is available for the right price as well.
Sheahan is available but since his value is low, may not love him yet.

Does Buffalo have any young current D-men or high quality D-prospects besides Nelson they may consider moving? Is Jake McCabe available? What's the ask for him?

Agree4 Disagree4

17 Aug 2017 20:48:10
Also would Buffalo be interested in Rochester, NY native Jimmy Howard to help with our cap problem.

I would take picks/ prospects in exchange. It gives Buffalo three goalies but they could move the underperforming one. Howard when healthy plays well and might be a good fit. Lehner has been shaky at times so having Howard might a good insurance.

Agree4 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 22:57:49
Datsyuk, thank you for your comments. I actually saw this on a different fan forum and had the same impression as you, but the responses were overwhelming favorable so I wanted to test this trade here. I also thought of Howard, especially since Gionta is from Rochester. Baptiste appears to be ready to make the jump to the NHL, Nelson's top end IMO is bottom 6 D-man and Girgensons had one good 3/ 4 season and was voted to an all star game. So Detroit is getting cap relief and a top 6 prospect, a bottom six forward, and bottom pairing defense-man prospect.

Van Sutter. pit Daniel sprong and a third. van tanev Daniel sprong and a second roand pic maybe 2. Edm jesse puljujärv.

Thank you for this post and coming up with some ideas here. I do see why this may be favourable on other sides. I think value wise we are somewhat close here.

However, is there any other available prospects you would be willing to move with similar values. Detroit needs a top 6 potential C because behind Larkin it's a little up for grabs or a Defense prospect that could reach top 4 or higher potential. Just need wise they would be better fits. Nelson seems to be kind of what we already have in Ouellet/ Sproul unless they can step up, so seemingly redundant for us. Similar to what I said about Girgensons as we already have guys like Helm/ Glenndenning or even Sheahan who underproduced but plays strong 2-way game.

I see a deal being possible here, just looking for more need focused players while Baptiste is useful, just not a position that needs to be filled since we have options.

Any suggestions? Also would be willing to take picks if you can't meet the needs.

Tor- JVR and Bracco or conditional 3rd.
Nash- fabbro.

Tor gets the d man, young with lots of potential, fits in with the rebuild and won't be playing in nashvilles top 4 for the foreseeable future ( not because of lack of skill Nashville has arguably best top 4 d core in league). Nashville gets top 6 power forward to replace James Neil, on a good contract and can help them win next season. Pick is conditional on JVR resigning. If he doesn't resign they get bracco if he does they get the 3rd.

Fabbro is not ready for the NHL, no way Toronto even considers this.

Getting a little old hear every Toronto trade being JVR, try someone else for a change.

17 Aug 2017 14:00:59
JVR, Carrick

Panthers are a playoff team in the making with just a couple of pieces missing. They get a scoring winger to replace jagr and a young dman

Leafs get another RH stay at home dam to help Hainsey


Believable5 Unbelievable15

17 Aug 2017 15:11:41
Remove carrick.

Agree6 Disagree8

17 Aug 2017 17:29:02
JVR alone is too much for pysk. Pysk st this point looks like a 5-6th defenceman 4 maybe at his best. Panthers should add a pick or a prospect, even still leafs could do better for jvr.

They signed Hainsey to play top pair with Reilly.

Don't rely on an aging Hainsey to keep up top line minutes all season.

AVS: Jarnkrok, fabbro, 1st

NSH: Duchene, 3rd round pick

Thoughts on this? I think good for both teams

Believable8 Unbelievable11

17 Aug 2017 15:14:38
Yeah what about Byron + T. Mitchell + 10$ for Johansen . yeah that's totally fair for both teams.

Agree2 Disagree11

17 Aug 2017 16:00:39
I actually think this could be close to realistic.

Nashville gives up their best D-prospect, a young Center who plays 3C but might be an ok 2C and a late first

For a 1st line Center in Duchene.

I see these two as trading partners, however I feel value wise this benefits Preds a little. So drop the 3rd and Preds add something small.

This looks close considering the ask is a young d-man. Nice job.

@KeyHabs Montreal can't do that anymore since they moved Sergachev, so Duchene isn't your teams answe but it might be for Nashville.

KeyHabs, that comment made you look really stupid.

Bored @ work, just a thought

Leafs - Blues trade

Leafs trade - JVR maybe ad a 3rd or a mid level prospect
Blues trade - Jordan Schmaltz plus a 2nd round pick

Wild thought but

Tampa Bay acquires:
-D Sedin
-H Sedin

Vancouver acquires:
-1st round pick 2018
-Callan Foote

Lightning get solid scorers to help with a possible cup run. Canucks ship off the Sedin's to the Eastern Conference and acquire a late 1st as well as a top 4/6 D prospect for their future since their D core is looking pretty bad.

Theres a small thing called salary cap.

2. Cap.

16 Aug 2017 13:42:20
Over pay because they're falling off and only going to get worse. They were great players, but that's behind them. Also I'm you're sending $850k (if foote even signed his ELC, not sure he did) and taking on near $15 mill I believe on a team that is already making side deals like garrison with vegas ans filpula at last deadline to shed salary.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 15:47:05
Yeah that makes sense. I didn't really think about the salary cap.
