I'd trade Horvat and 7th in a heartbeat for Hughes, and I'm a HUGE Horvat fan

Does he play the wing? From what I understand he's a centre, which we don't need. I'd love to get the brothers together, but we're stacked with our top 2 centres already and don't need anymore top 6 centres. EP is obviously 1st C quality and I'd contend that Horvat is also a 1C, but more of a low-end 1C. We could definitely use more great wingers though on the top two lines.

Simple answer most teams with lottery potential do not trade down....

 

Next stop Free Agency...

Horvat is a winner and the teams' workhouse I cannot see trading him as a long-term benefit.

 

I would rather dangle any of Juolevi, Virtanen, Gaudette, Hutton, Stecher, Demko

 

Probably not enough though, acquiring another all-star brother combo is a dream :(   I will resort to just repeating the following in hopes it will come true;

 

It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft It's our year to get lucky and move up at the draft

How much would you give up? Me personally, I'd do Horvat+Juolevi+Goldobin+7-9 for Hughes. It would probably take Horvat+Boeser+7-9 to get it done, and i think id really consider it. Yes that is a hell of a lot to give up, but i would personally take the gamble.

I believe Dach will better than Hughes.......so no.

 

Hughes has the offensive prowess like no other in this draft, but Dach’s hockey IQ is way superior than Hughes at both ends of the ice.

Too risky especially if the 7th - 9th became something. I don’t think we have much left that can get it done unfortunately.

 

Best I would do is Horvat or Boeser, not both.

 

ONE OF diepetro, markstrom, or Demko.

 

2nd or gaudette 

 

3rd.

 

If that’s not enough, then no. Maybe I would throw in something useless that might have some value to another Dim Jim type like baerschi or motte but that’s as far as I would go.

Isn’t Dach like the riskiest most Virtanen type in the top 10? I could be wrong but he is the same guy who had an unbelievable start in the first quarter and then sucked the other 3?

All due respect to J.Hughes, he could end up as a bust. I'm no pro scout, but giving up Boeser and/or Horvat + first draft pick for an unknown (NHL level) seems like a VERY big gamble. Remember when every one wanted Hischier or Patrick?

 

If we're picking within top 7, I'd say we keep it and draft the best possible. Can explore trading up (IF it doesn't cost the core of our team) if we're below top 10.

Yeah, he did have a huge slump, something like 5 points in 15 games, only scoring one goal during that span, but he does so much more than just putting up points. He kind of reminds me of Jason Spezza, who battled consistently early on in his career, but turned out to be a pretty damn good player.

 

It’s a big bold prediction, but I’m going to stand by it. Dach is one of those guys that will win at any will.

 

EDIT: Maybe Spezza was a bad comparison. I will probably say more like Sean Couturier.

lol Pettersson maybe the best player in the hischier draft.. but you are really calling hischier a bust? lmao so a 20 year old with 100 points in 2 season missing his top winger for 40+ games this season is a bust?
