      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.

JD Burke: Montreal aggressively trying to trade 3rd pick

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

JD Burke of the Athletic has been in Dallas all week and on TSN 1040 they asked him what the biggest buzz is currently in Dallas. 

He said their is a ton of chatter that Montreal is aggressively trying to trade down from 3rd overall because they are in love with Korkaniemi and are dead swt on drafting him. They are tying to dropto a position where they feel they an still draft him at. 8th overall  would be the lowest they would likely be willing to drop to. 

 

He also stated that if they can’t drop down, they will 100% draft him regardless as they’re that high on him. 

 

 

This puts the Canucks into being a possible trade partner. Would it be worth moving up to third for what it would cost?  Upside in prospect worth it ?

No. Unless we really covet a dman there. If K goes third there is a real good chance a quality D or Zdaina falls into our laps. No reason for us to move up really.

I'm really high on Zadina, so if it means we can land him, I'm all for it given that we don't sell the farm to move up 4 spots.

If we can flip Tanev+Baertschi to the Islanders or Oilers for their 1st I would in a heartbeat. Take Zadina/Thachuk with 3 and Bouchard/Dobson/Boqvist/Hughes with the other.. that'll be the perfect thing for us imo

7th overall and Jake Virtanen for 3rd

 

Montreal could also use somebody like Tanev on their blue line. That would help them immediately and they’d still get a good prospect for the future.

You gotta be trolling... there's no way a hockey fan would be this delusional... basically 2 first rounders to move up 4 spots??

Why are people so hot on gutting the team to move sideways......

 

We're not desperate to move up or down, adding in one of our best young forwards and our top d prospect is just dumb

they're not.......just morons trying to get a rise

Trade up for 1OA (as long as it's not too expensive) or stand pat, it's not worth giving up assets otherwise.

If it’s Kotkaniemi they want they should just draft him at 3. It wouldn’t be that crazy of a reach. What would be crazy is Montreal moving down and Kotkaniemi getting picked before he gets to them the 2nd time.
