MTL: Dvorak

ARI: 1st & 3rd (Carolina '22) + Ylonen

Montreal completes the deal by sending a fruit basket & chocolates to Carolina's Tom Dundon, with a thank-you card for his expen$ive hissy-fit.

(Ironically, KK + Ylonen would NOT have gotten Dvorak, but this may.)

Chickenfoot,
I read your comments with interest! They all make sense to me! You obviously know your rules and regulations. Hopefully M. Bergeron is paying attention as he can use some help!

Rgds,

Eddyboy.

It all sounds good I just hope Dvorak can fill the 2nd line center roll. Hoping they could get something better. I was hoping this would be KKs breakout year. For some reason I think Bergevin will match.

Thanks Eddy, I was being insulted on the leaf site so your comment seems out of place, but thanks man๐Ÿ‘.

Leafs, laughs, same thing! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Being insulted on a Leaf site is all the more proof you know your stuff. lol. Always respect your opinion.

To MTL: Ross Johnston

To NYI: Lehkonen

MTL gets some size and snarl for the playoffs, and next year, and the Isles get a reliable Lehkonen who'll play both sides or the puck.

Buf trades Jack Eichel to MTL for:

Kotkaniemi
1st
2nd
3rd
Tatar
Danault

Buf retains 4M in the first season only of this deal.

BUF gets a huge hall that is sellable to the Sabres' fan base. They also get first crack a resigning Tatar and Danault if they fit.

MTL gets a #1 centre NOW, and would still have 11 picks for June's draft. They also have roughly 1M left to add at the deadline.

Just not with KK.

Just not with KK.

I like KK too, but their first ask would be for Suzy, which is a big no. To make this happen you'd need to give them a young C back so they can sell it to their beaten up fan base.


4.) 15 Mar 2021 02:16:07
That is an awful lot for Eichel, Yes he is good but man that's a lot, KK, Tatar and Danault, AND 1, 2, 3.No thanks I understand Buf needs to sell it, But I don't think I would make that trade. Buff is looking to rebuild, KK, 1st, and couple Prospects would do it.

Current lineup "as is" before Trades/Drafting/Free Agency:

Drouin - Suzuki - Gallagher
Tatar - Kotkaniemi - Armia
Lehkonen - Danault - (Domi)
Byron - Poehling - Weal

Chiarot - Weber
Kulak - Petry
Romanov - Juulsen

Price
Lindgren


Here's the changes I'd try for, in order, by position:

FORWARDS:

- Add Top-6 RW with Size (6M)
- Add Bottom-6 RW with Size (3M)

Sign Kovalchuk for 1-year/3.5M if first option can't be done.

DEFENSE:

- Offer-Sheet Sergachev (8-year/8M)
- If a suitable LD is not possible, stand pat. (Romanov is signed)
- Continue to bury Alzner for next 2 years in AHL (saves $1,125,000/year on the cap)

GOALIES:

- Sign a 30-game "1-B" NHL backup like Boston did with Halak. (i.e. Khudobin, Greiss, etc.)

- Alternatively, consider trading Domi (rumoured interest from PIT) for Jarry or DeSmith.


DO NOT RE-SIGN:

- Domi or Mete (RFA-Trade Bait)
- Weise, Folin, Kincaid (UFA)
- Hudon (RFA-probably heading to Europe)

Trade Lindgren for a pick/prospect to make room for G Demchenko on the farm. (Good prospect tandem with Primeau)

* If successful with FWD options 1 & 2, Sergachev, and a B/U G, the Salary Cap = 80.5M.


CONSIDERATIONS:

- It's Time for Bargain-Hunting: A lot of teams need to clear cap space. (Carolina got a 1st this year for taking on the Marleau salary dump.)

- Leverage cap space to get picks/prospects from teams up against a flat cap for the next 3 years.

- Go Big or Stand Pat: If you can't get the deal you want, stand pat. In-season space = more opportunities to address in-season needs, especially at the Trade Deadline.

- Lock-up the Core: Extend Gallagher, Danault, Petry, Armia before they're UFA's in '22 on deals with reasonable term.

- Cap Management: With only 63M, 39M, & 27M committed over the next 3 years, the Habs have an enviable cap situation. Manage it, and LEVERAGE it.

- The Draft: With 14 picks this year, and 11 next year, the Habs are in a great position to add to one of the best systems in the NHL. OR. move up in the draft and grab a truly high-end piece that fits.

- In short, the Habs are in a great position to take advantage of some cash-strapped teams.

- Lots of Cap Space & Picks = flexibility.

- If the A-plans don't work out, there'll be some interesting B-plans to consider, along with standing pat if/when it makes sense to do so.

I'm not sure why either team would do this.

MTL would gut their organization to accommodate get a great player, but would weaken their organization to do it.

COL would lose a key piece for futures, when they're clearly trying to win now.

NO thank-you from MTL.

Kadri is talented, but there's something wrong between his ears. He has been suspended time and time again and let his team down for reacting emotionally and foolishly. You can't depend on a player like that, so he can't be on your team.

MTL declines to include Guhle, and counter with:

- Two 1st (2022 MTL and CAR)
- 2nd and 3rd (2022)
- Drouin
- Ylonen

This would be as generous as I would consider for Eichel. If Buf asks for more I'd understand, but I'd walk.
