The most I would have given up was a 2nd and 3rd or just walk away.

You're one those Ballard, Raymond, and a 2nd gets you a superstar kind of guys aren't you?

 

The reason they get a 1st instead of that 2nd is being willing to wait up to two years to actually get it. You don't make a team wait for their return for free.

 

Edit: It also affords us ample opportunity to replace that 1st if things don't go well.

One good thing about this trade. If Bo or Petey go down to injury, we now have a guy that can step into a top six center role while they're out and keep us afloat. Until now, the best options we had if one of them went down were Sutter or Granlund.

This is what depth feels like :wub:

Are people still going to be upset if he acquires a late 1st next year for say Tanev or Sutter and basically replaces this?

Benning will go down as the greatest GM in NHL history if he gets a 1st rounder for Sutter :lol:

hfboard Canuck 'fans' 

 

"Benning is doing nothing to improve the team" 

 

JB picks up a top 6 forward and lottery protected the pick 

 

"whhaaa our futurezzz" 

 

that 2021 pick would need another 2-3 years before that pick can even hope to make an impact. how exciting... 

 Very good point on the timeline of that pick

 by then we hopefully have our first of many cups under this dynasty.

If he can stay healthy this year and with retention...no reason you can't get a late 1st for that from a contender...maybe need a small add or something.

 

Pretty sure we were offered a late 1st 1'ish year ago for him.

Well considering TG just said he will play with EP and Boeser, as long as he's healthy he'll be a lock for 50 points at the minimum. 

If Miller's going to be at LW, I hope that means Baertschi is on his way out then. Otherwise, they've got no balance at C, with 3 lefties and 1 RH on the 4th line. Assuming Gaudette is in the press box or traded, of course.

The very top of the draft has some VERY good players but I think the draft drops off in quality later in the 1st. At least as far as what's being predicted of 16 year olds thus far.

Yay. Yet another LH Center:sadno:

I'd be really excited with this acquisition if Miller were a rightie. 

Uh - Sutter, Beagle and Gaudette are all right-handed....

 

And it isn't determined yet where Miller will play - whether that's on EP's wing - or whether he takes draws and defensive responsibities on that line to lighten the impact on EP.

Regardless, it doesn't really matter much.  The thing is - they have a right handed sniper in Boeser for that line - so I'm not sure why it would matter much, if at all.

Definitely overpaid. Miller has to produce 50+ points annually for our conditional 1st rounder to be worth it. 

If you place the value of the conditional 1st round pick as being worth 50 points per year then that seems reasonable.  He has scored 161 points in the last 3 years in a 3rd line checking role, if there is no improvement in his play at all then he is definitely underpaid, by your own standards.
