[Proposal] Offseason VAN+FLA

Recommended Posts

To Florida 

Jake Virtanen

 

To Van

Denisenko 

 

I feel with Toffoli coming in and really building chem with the group and Podkolzin comming. Virtanen may be the odd man out. Could Virtanen fetch a prospect of Denisenko's caliber? I feel like if we trade Jake I really want to swing for the fences on the return as 225lb guys who skate like him, hit, and can snipe just entering their prime are a rare unicorn.

Denisenko is a top 5 prospect right now.  I seriously doubt Florida would give him up for Virtanen. (TSN actually had Denisenko ranked as the 2 nd best NHL affiliated prospect back in January. Podkolzin, for the record, was ranked 14)

 

I think you need to set your sights a little lower

Probably. 

Nice list. Interesting to see the stock still so high on Bowan Byram after his serious injury set him back a bit this season. Not that I'm knocking him but #3 seems high given the circumstance.

For another opinion. ESPN had Denisenko at 8 in March. Podkolzin at 11.  Everyone is going to have a different take. But regardless, he’s a top prospect at the moment.

I'm happy to see him get recognition I think he was quite underrated for a while. Mind you I think Virtanen will likely blossom in the east I'm not overly eager to trade him unless the return is grade A.

Well, I guess it's needless to say here that, if Florida wanted to do that trade, we pull the trigger before they sober up? lol

Amazing how many people want to trade players like Virtanen or Boeser for a shiny new toy that, may or may not pan out.
