[Proposal] Van + Toronto, Van + Dallas (Fairly Minor)

Recommended Posts

* Anyone too lazy to read, the short version is Tanev + Rodin for Morrow and Franson


Chris Tanev


Cody Franson (rights)

Matt Frattin


- Gets a solid young shutdown d-man.

- Could be a reliable partner for Gardiner/Rielly in the future

- Plays a safe, cerebral game (would mesh well with Carlyles system


- Gets a reliable 3rd pairing d-man for Ballard

- Young NHL ready player with top-6 potential


Brendan Morrow


Anton Rodin

Matt Frattin


- Picked up veteran players in Jagr and Whitney for short term

- Frattin and Rodin give them a couple stronger offensive prospects long term


- Gets a physical veteran guy who can play lines 2-3

- Poor mans Doan

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Booth Kesler Morrow

Higgins Lapierre Hansen

Lapierre Malhotra Raymond


Hamhuis Bieksa

Edler Garrison

Ballard Franson

Forget the Toronto trade and just do the Dallas trade like this:

To Dallas: Keith Ballard or Chris Tanev + 2014 2nd

To Vancouver: Brendan Morrow

And if we get Doan, our top six would look like this

Sedin - Sedin - Doan

Booth - Kesler - Morrow

Burrows or Booth drop down to the third line as a result.

If Franson comes for Tanev I hope Ballard gets moved for another defense-first D-man with offensive potential (wouldn't mind someone who knows how to get out of trouble like Sulzer or Sheldon Brookbank) since there has to be someone to cover their own end when one of them rushes up the ice.

Also, I'd keep Frattin and that good shot of his; would a healthy Raymond interest them? He does have Top 6 scoring upside.

Morrow would also be nice to have for the playoffs.
