(proposal) my markstrom trade

Recommended Posts

To van:


To buff:


Other pieces can be added to even the trade up. Buffalo have a lot of young center depth and grig has not developed like they would have liked them too. Grigs brings us size and skill and a change could help him reach his top 6 potential.

Why does Buffalo need yet another goaltending prospect? They already have 2 NHL-ready goalies, and some 4-5 other prospects. And more importantly, why would they give us a highly rated 1st rounder for a goalie that should fetch a 3rd round pick, at best?

Even though Grigorenko fell in the draft and the whole relagation to AHL/CHL saga that might have cause friction between the Organization and the Player, i'm pretty sure Buffalo could have a better return for Grigo. Like a similar Kassian for Hodgson trade, two 1st rounder from the same years that aren't really progressing in both organizations.

Markstrom doesn't have a lot of value.

They could use some defencemen who can play right now, and the Canucks have a few too many kids on the blueline:

Markstrom, Stanton and a 2nd should do it.

Edler - Tanev

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Sbisa - Weber


Still a very solid defence right there. Stanton played 60+ games admirably and scored some 15ish points as well, he's worth a lot more than people think.
