[Proposal] ANA - EDM - VAN

Recommended Posts

3-way trades are rare. I know. Just trying to think outside the box.

ANA: Luongo, Ballard

EDM: Hiller, Sbisa

VAN: Gagner, Jones, + (Dubnyk?)

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Booth Kesler Higgins

Jones Gagner Hansen

Raymond Malhotra Lapierre

Hamhuis Bieksa

Edler Salo

Garrison Tanev

Sauve Schultz



IMO ANA upgrades in both positions but takes on extra salary. EDM gets a goalie and D the new coach is familiar with. VAN loses IMO but I think the immediate return is better than many of the other proposals including Luongo. And also moves Ballard to make room for Garrison.

Also want to give credit for an original idea but don't think it really helps any of the teams. Hiller likely is not who the Oilers would target as their goalie to carry the team as those young studs become dominant. Gagner helps the Canucks for a couple months while Kesler is injured but then sort of gets lost in the shuffle. Luongo and Ballard are massive contracts for a smaller hockey market in Anaheim.

Why would Anaheim want to take on extra salary when they have both Perry and Getzlaf to re-sign after this season?

If you look at who gives up what, it doesn't make sense either:

Van loses Luongo and Ballard

Ana loses Hiller and Sbisa

Edm loses Gagner and Jones (plus maybe Dubnyk)

Gagner and Jones (plus maybe Dubnyk) aren't worth Luongo to us, let alone Ballard. Jones is a bottom 6 forward and Gagner has never really fit in Edmonton so they're in a tough spot with him. If we were asking too much on draft day for Luongo, we aren't going to settle now for much less.
