[Rumour] Florida Panthers GM ready to deal No. 2 NHL draft pick — for right offer


Recommended Posts

I don't see them moving that pick. They are not close to contending and do not need to accelerate their rebuild at the moment.

Maybe in 2 years we could see them moving their first rounder.

Maybe a swap of their 1st for a elite prospect could happen.

A lot of people here look at straight "hockey trades" as the only considerations, but in markets where they are loss-leaders, attractive proposals which allow their GM to save money, are even more attractive than people would think.

We effectively got David Booth for nothing, because FLA couldn't continue to take on his salary. In a similar right, they may be willing to move the 2nd overall Pick, and a cap-heavy player (Campbell/Upshall), to get valuable assets that contribute to their organization.

Luongo + Edler + Schroeder

for

Jovo + Matthias + 2nd Overall Pick

We're parting with 3 valuable assets, and we're getting 1 stellar asset back, a serviceable 3C, and a cap dump

Despite the school of thought that FLA has markstrom and doesn't want to take on an albatross contract, look at Campbell's contract and how valuable he is to that team. Luo would give them great goaltending in a no pressure market, and Edler is as reasonable a D contract in the league for someone not on an ELC/Bridge Deal.

Sounds like a bunch smoke blowing from Tallon and the same from Roy the other day when he mention something similar about the number 1 .

The only way is if you see another team in the top 10 at most making a over payment plus there first round pick to get up to number 1 or 2 .

The Canucks are not players for either of these picks so everybody can stop with the pathetic proposals and get back to reality
