Nuxfanabroad Posted January 13, 2015 Share Posted January 13, 2015 Slow news day for our boys, so decided to try & drum up some swap-talk.. Let's say the next few wks go rather poorly. In Feb, I'd consider something like this proposal. It's mostly based upon accepting TBay is closer to taking their conf(PO's) than we would be. Their contract/cap situation is going to be a concern soon(with all that fwd wealth). I think Bishop's kicks in next yr; & God knows what Stammer will pull down, the yr after? Yzerman might pay a high price, to fill key needs, if he thinks the conference is ripe to grab... we send: Lack, Tanev, Kassian, perhaps a 2nd?(please comment whether we need to add a pick, etc...) -Last yr BB was injured at PO's; this yr his numbers aren't great. They'd prob like to upgrade depth there(feeling Vasilevsky is still too young/ inexperienced, to lean on heavily). -Kass would give them more fwd size for the PO-grind. -Tanev is hard to let go. But his PK excellence & RH, smooth, intelligent game would surely compliment guys like Garr & Hedman. Possible returns?.. 1)DROUIN, Nabakov, Koekkoek. Yes I realize it's unlikely..but has the kid looked good at the NHL level so far?(I haven't seen enough of their games)..I'm guessing we'd have to add?? 2)Connolly, Rags 1st, Nabakov, Koekkoek. 3) Swap Namestnikov for Connolly. In that event, would we forget about the 2015 Rags 1st? I heard this Russian kid is pretty smooth. Assuming Koekkoek is one of the young, talented PMD's out there, he's definitely in the package. Lack's value may be on the rise, if a few teams are sniffing around. Also the value goes up if we let them dump Nabby on us.(we'd likely send him down, if poss). I really like these 3 guys we're dealing; yet they all say gotta' give to get. Are any of these three packages worthwhile, and/or realistic? edit: Wanted to add, we'd be calling up Corrado permanently with such a deal. With him & Hamhuis added, we might be ok.
