[Proposal] What would it takes to get Skinner ?

Recommended Posts


i do think that trading kesler would be a bad idea. nonetheless, i would accept to trade him in a package that could send us back Skinner.

so far my proposal :

Kesler Edler Booth 1st + prospect (gaunce) to Carolina

Skinner Semin + insert to Vancouver

my top two lines :

sedin sedin Burrows

skinner santo semin

your thoughts?

Imo I think we should trade Kes and Edler separately to maximize trade value.

As nice as Skinner is, I don't think it's worth having Kesler going the other way since it is going to leave a huge hole at 2nd Line C and the PK. Sure Santo can play the PK, but I don't know if he can score at a 2nd line pace throughout an 82 game season.

However, I'd do an Edler+Schroeder+ 1st round pick (2016) for Skinner+5th round pick (2014)



Higgins-Santorelli- Hansen

Booth-__?__- Sestito






Edit: Changed 2nd Round pick to 1st in 2016, not worth giving up 6th overall this year and not worth missing out the chance on drafting a player in a deep 2015 draft.

I would do edler Schroeder 2nd for skinner in a heartbeat

Actually seems kind of fair to me. Our 2nd is after all the 36th overall. Not like its 50, it's barely out of 1st round. However, ain't no way Edler is going to Carolina after the Eric Staal incident. Their fan base would eat him alive. The pressure on Edler to perform would be huge because 1, the Canes need it, and 2, he has to buy back the fans he already lost from that knee on knee collision. Good luck getting Edler to waive to got there.
