#1 getting a goalie(I know another Lu trade but bear with me)
Washington trades C Brooks Laich, LW/C Filip Forsberg and G Michal Neuvirth for G Roberto Luongo, LW Mason Raymond and a 2013 3rd round draft pick.
-Both the caps goalies havent played well enough. Holtby is not a starter YET, and Neuvirth is just average. Luongo gives them a solid elite goalie. Raymond gives them depth and secondary scoring.
-We get a good 3rd line center, top prospect and a decent backup for Schneids. I do think Was would do this trade given that they continue to play poorly with bad goaltending.
#2 improving defense
Washington trades D Jeff Schultz, LW Wojtek Wolski, and a 2013 2nd round draft pick for D Keith Yandle and RW Paul Bissonette.
-Phx has a lot of young D-men coming up that can replace Yandle(Rundblad, Gormely etc...). Schultz can replace Yandle until one of the younger guys steps up. Wolski adds depth to Phx`s offense and a 2nd round draft pick in a deep draft
*If this is not enough what would be needed to get Yandle out of Phx?
-Was gets a good defenseman to help them in their own zone. their defense has been dreadful. and Biznasty gives them character and grit.
# Getting Ovi some help up front
If Ovi can convince Radulov to come to the NHL to play with him they can make a very deadly line. I think Ovi can influence Radulov into coming to NA for at least one year, or until Kuznetzov is ready.
Sign Radulov 2 years 4mill per.( it will take an over payment to get Radulov back in NA)
This gives that line another threat other than Ovi. Players will have to shutdown both these speedy wingers now as well as Backstrom.
Roster afters trades and healthy(cap geek is still screwed up, but all this fits under that cap amazingly)
what do you think?
