Mr.53 Posted January 6, 2015 Share Posted January 6, 2015 I've been a fan of Madison Bowey for a while now. And yes, I'll admit the WJC win got me a little jazzed up. Sue me. But I was thinking of a three-way trade that could benefit all teams. To Vancouver: Madison Bowey To Washington: Reilly Smith, Anton Cederholm To Boston: Zack Kassian The deal basically comes down to this. Vancouver does this because: We get a great young stud right handed D prospect. Bowey would fit perfectly with the Canucks lineup. Especially if it does look like Kevin Bieksa's time is running out, Bowey would be a suitable replacement. The loss of Kassian will hurt, but I think Bowey could be better for us, as early as next year or 2. We need to address our back end issues if we want to stay competitive for the future. Bowey is the least proven as he's the youngest, but the only way he's getting pried out of there is for youthful talent back. A right handed shot stud defenseman is the last piece in my opinion to have a solid complete youth pool. Washington does this because: They get Reilly Smith, who is capable of putting up high end offensive numbers who is still a young talent. He makes the Caps better, and more of a contender in the East. I feel like after the David Perron trade, some East teams may look for upgrades as well. They add tons of offense without really touching their roster. He gives them good offensive talent, and since he's young, he can be adopted into their core. Anton cederholm pretty much just acts as a consolation for losing Bowey. A lessor prospect with far less potential, but still enough potential to maybe crack the roster in a couple years. Boston does this because: According to reports and word of mouth, (we all know how reliable that can be) Boston is looking to get heavier and add muscle. First off let me say this, I like Zack Kassian, and think he is going to be a good player in this league. However, you have to give to get. Kassian adds the muscle they've been looking for, and could fit the Bruins play style well. Imagine Lucic AND Kassian beating down opposing teams lines. That is an Eastern Conference team I don't think anyone would like to match up with in the playoffs. If anyones system knows how to bring the power forward out of a player, I think it's the Boston Bruins. End result is. + Van: Madison Bowey - Van: Zack Kassian, Anton Cederholm + Wsh: Reilly Smith, Anton Cederholm - Wsh: Madison Bowey + Bos: Zack Kassian - Bos: Reilly Smith I know the trade is a little "out there" to say the least, but what do you guys think? Any tweaks or throw the whole thing out? (que the sarcastic comments. I always love them. Best part of CDC) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
