Gretzky to Lemieux Posted December 24, 2014 Share Posted December 24, 2014 To BOS: Zack Kassian, Ryan Stanton, Yannick Weber, Chris Higgins, Linden Vey, Tom Sestito, and Brendan Gaunce To VAN: Dougie Hamilton, Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, and Adam Mcquaid Boston saves about a million in cap space while adding LOTS of depth and size. They receive a potential superstar in Kassian while we get a potential top 2 defensemen in Hamilton. Vancouver receives some size, speed, skill and grit. Eriksson has played and thrived in this conference before and Hamilton and Mcquaid would also dominate in the West because of their size. Smith is used to replace Kassians numbers on the 3rd line. Keep in mind that Eriksson has played with the Sedins before which will allow us to rotate Vrbata, Burrows and Eriksson with the Sedins if we're struggling with offense. Hamilton and Mcquaid are upgrades on defence and we should be able to sign them once their contracts have run out because we have the cap space. I think that Gaunce and Jensen are good trading assets because we already have Horvat and Mccann as our 2 way centers so Gaunce is the odd man out. I am willing to give up Kassian ONLY if we get Hamilton in return. What do you guys think?
