Been reading a lot of proposals lately, here is my take:

To BUF - Gaunce, Corrado, 2014 6th Overall

To Van - 2014 2nd Overall

We give up a future 2-way line 3 centre with a possible #2 potential, a future top 4-6 defence and potential top 6 prospect.

We get back a future potential #1 centre

To TB - Edler

To Van - Purcell, Connelly

Purcell is a good setup man for 2nd or 3rd line, cap hit is close to elders which makes a deal more likely, Connelly is a project with his limited NHL success so far.

To Chi - Kesler

To Van - Leddy, Teravainen, 1st 2014

Leddy is expendable as a 5/6 guy playing behind Odujya in Chicago, last year of his contact. Tera is a top notch prospect.

Also, I read an article from a Chicago beat writer back just after the deadline saying there was a deal on the table for Kesler which included Leddy, Teravainen and Andrew Shaw but fell through as the canucks had to make a deal for Edler to another team to make the cap work.

To Tor - Tanev

To Van - Kadri

Both young, Toronto gets a top 2 defence which they will have to resign at $3+.....we get a confident/cocky #2 centre to replace Kesler with the potential to push for the number 1 spot.

This is risky due to Kadris perceived issues and giving up such a proven steady resource in Tanev but we need scoring and youth up front badly.

Sign Niskanen $6,000,000

Re-sign Kassian $3,000,000 X 3 - Bridge Contract

Re-sign Santorelli $2,000,000

Call up Horvat if ready

Room to move a couple of other players for picks or keep as injury reserve.

I would say the Chicago trade could be more likely if they don't have success in the playoffs, they seem like they are limited up the middle. Haven't watched enough of them this year in the playoffs but i remember them using Hanzel last year in the #2 spot...i think Shaw was there this year when he's healthy

I like it. However I'd make a couple adjustments to the line up:

Sedin - Sedin - Purcell

Teravainen - Kadri - Kassian

Higgins - Horvat - Jensen

Matthias - Richardson - Burrows

Hansen/Sestito, Santorelli

Hamhuis - Niskanen

Garrison - Bieksa

Stanton - Leddy



I must say I really like that depth. Trading Tanev would also allow us to draft Ekblad since we're moving up.

I don't think that gets it done for buffalo's pick, but love the chicago trade even though we'd basically turn them into a dynasty. I don't want Kadri, nor do I like the return for Edler. If that's all that Edler gets us we keep him, his value will go up.
