(Proposal) Getting younger and tougher


Recommended Posts

To van: bouma

To cal: weise and a 4th

Van gets a solid role player who would play on the fourth line and be an energy guy who can actually fight. Flames gain a grinder in return and a 4th in a deep draft

To van: emelin

To mtl: sauve and a third

Canucks get depth on d with a hard hittting depth d man who could easily slot into the top six and the canadiens get a d propsect who could replace emelin in the future and add a pick

To van: clutterbuck,

To min: alberts, sweatt, raymond, a second

The canucks get another hard hitter who could play in the bottom six and bring a very physical presence. The wild acquire another young frwrd who with the right developpement could play in the nhl one day. And they also get a reliable veteran on the back end. And adf some speed on the wing plus a third round pick in a deep draft

Without doan:

Twins burrows

Kes booth higgins

Malhotra hansen clutterbuck

Lapierre bouma kassian/volpatti/pinizotto

Bieksa hamhuis

Edler garrison

Ballard tanev

Emelin

Schnieder lack

No incentive for Montreal to make this trade. Emelin has already proven his worth to Montreal, Raymond isn't exactly the kind of player that Bergevin has been going after (character guys with grit) and Montreal already has much better D prospects than Sauve (Beaulieu, Tinordi, Ellis)

You must watch as little hockey as the OP does.

No way Montreal does that trade; Emelin is a great young D-man for them.

And Minny isn't going to trade Clutterbuck for a bunch of spare parts. Just because he doesn't produce points like a star doesn't mean you can get him for scraps.

So in the revised proposal Montreal gives up a roster player who is one of the better hitting defensemen in the league who actually has a bit of an offensive upside. In return they get a prospect that hockeysfuture considers Vancouvers 5th best defensive prospect and is described as a long term project who projects to be a one dimensional defensive defenseman

Oh and a 3rd round pick. This makes Montreal a worse team right now with no guarantee that they'll be better off in the future. So why would they do it? Emelin is signed to a cap friendly $2 mill/year for 2 years contract and is slotted to be in the top 6. There is no reason for Montreal to trade him unless they get better in the process.
