[Trade] Lighting trade Slater Koekkoek, 5th-round pick to Blackhawks for Jan Rutta, 7th-round pick

Recommended Posts

Hey Vintage, are your fingers getting sore from all this typing?

This is becoming the busiest day of trades I can remember for a long time

interesting.... lots of minor moves today. Is there a GM meeting somewhere?

The Tampa 5th and the Chicago 7th are going to be less than 40 selections apart.

The trades seem to be building in importance!  10 more trades and we may have one involving a top 6 forward or top for D :frantic:

Interesting.  Chicago taking flyers on players with great expectations lately but no real results from their draft status.  Let's see how this plays out over the next few seasons

Rutta was buried in the minors and has a 2.25M cap hit.  Is he staying in the minors.

Could we have taken on Koekkoek for Del Zotto and a 6th? Worth it?

I doubt it.  I think this move probably has a fit element from Tampa's perspective - their left side is Hedman, McDonagh, Coburn....their right side Stralman, Girardi, Cernak....of those sides, I think there's more uncertainty on the right side with Girardi's age, and Cernak being a rookie - I doubt Rutta takes a healthy job from either of them, but from a depth perspective, perhaps Rutta gives them something they felt they needed more at this point (Cameron Gaunce also being a LHD recall option for them beyond Koekkoek).

Not sure Del Zotto would be considered as good a fit?

This is probably all true, but also the fact that Rutta has cleared waivers, so it allows this depth to be in the minors. Del Zotto would have to clear waivers and I don't think he would at this point.

that's a good point - that does enhance player's value in context like this.

I think Tampa likely still looks to make moves to bury Toronto and Boston, but this in itself makes sense.

Tampa trades a depth LD for a depth RD

 

Possibly making room for Alex Edler with Coburn and Cal Foote coming back

 

Hedman  Girardi
Edler Stralman

McDonagh Cernak

It is funny that when the Edler to Tampa trade rumours were hot and heavy last year, Koekkoek and/or Dotchin were considered by many as possible pieces of a package in return.  It looks like the issue is more likely that they aren’t good enough, and not just that they are buried behind better D.

 

I also thought that Tyler Johnson would have been an excellent main piece coming back in case Pettersson wasn’t able to make it at centre in his first year, and needed a crutch to ease him into it.  I guess that was a good non-move :)

Looks like a d-corps of a Stanley Cup championship team.
