      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] C/RW Kevin Hayes could be in play

Recommended Posts

"Chances are that if the Rangers make a substantial move leading into Friday’s first round of the entry draft in Dallas, it will involve Kevin Hayes. Multiple sources report the 26-year-old impending Group II free-agent center has attracted significant interest from around the league as general manager Jeff Gorton sifts through various scenarios both connected to and independent of improving the club’s ninth-overall position."

Found a post on HF boards talking about this. Do you guys feel Hayes might be a good fit to play with Pettersson? 

 

Perhaps we could look at the 7th + a small add for 9th + Hayes.

 

VAN
9th + Hayes

 

NYR
7th overall + ??

 

Thoughts?

Makes zero sense on trading a 26 year old 25 goal scorer.

Is this guy one of those NCAA players that didn't sign with the team that drafted him? Chicago? Signed with the Rangers instead? Wonder if the Canucks showed interest back then.

Cap Friendly says he's an RFA.

hmmm.... I don't know that 9th to 7th is going to be a big enough draw for them, we'd have to add a lot to get Hayes.  I'm not sure how we don't get out of this one without overpaying.

 

I'd like to get the 26th or 28th out of them... not sure what deal could make that happen either! :P

He's a good player, and Gorton is just doing his due diligence in listening to offers on him.  I'd think everyone but 5 guys are available on that roster, for the right price.  He isn't afraid to make a move, and can survive the process of acclimating prospects to the NHL as he has superstar goaltending to cover a myriad of growing pains.

and if He wants to move up a couple of spots to get a player he wants that he's afraid to lose out on, I could see him packaging Hayes and the 9th to sweeten the pot.

A's:

50%Yes, Absolutely

25%He can protect Pettersson

00%if Jim thinks so

25%Pass


Poll is only a few minutes old.

I'm thinking... Baerstchi? replace a winger who averages 20 a season (if healthy) for a Center (who fills a need) and scored 25 this year?  

 

Not sure they would go for that tho.

Doesn't make any sense for NYR.  They are rebuilding and are looking for prospects and picks.

Just get a UFA without trading anything.

UFA's cost big $$ - Could sell him on a lengthy extension to play with Pettersson.  He is an RFA and only 26 years old.  In context...

 

Horvat is: 22

Baerstchi is: 25

Hutton is: 25

Leipsic is: 24

Gaunce is: 24


He would fit in that older core group.  Be a great 2nd or 3rd line C. swap him and Sutter around. I think he would do exceptionally well with Pettersson.

 

Check his highlights: tall, lanky, apparently is a great physical deterrent but he can stand up for himself. Could help keep an eye out for Pettersson although not a big fighter.  

 


Sutter is 29.

Edler is 31.

 

I could see Hayes as a good older leader and i think he would fit in well with Sutter well he's here.

Eh, he's an interesting piece but not something I'd be willing to pay for just yet. He's a piece I'd want as a playoff regular or as a contender. At this point I'd still be looking at drafting our own guys and guys in their early twenties.

7th + 2019 2nd for 9th + Hayes

 

Move assets in the regular season to recoup lost 2nd. I am really high on this guy lol.  I know some fans would be like halt those breaks.. Jim get a 2nd? but it can be done.

Yes, but lets say that New York prizes a player that Chicago might take.  Maybe Hayes and the 9th for our 7th and we pick Smith?

Depends on the calibre of talent you want in said center.  If you want a center that is beyond a 3rd line center, you might have to trade.
