Nuxfanabroad Posted March 10, 2015 Share Posted March 10, 2015 Hard to compare it to the Nords/Lindros..That was partly attributable to Fr/Eng culture differences/preferences; as well, there was no cap-factor at the time. Still imagine some lucky team lands the lotto..Which GM is most likely to consider accepting a huge package for McDavid? Which other franchise would most likely have the resources/wherewithal to land him? Buffalo, Edm, Philly or TBay perhaps? What's an example package that it would take,(given CM's performance, this season)? Example: If Edm landed the #1, what if TBay offered: Drouin, Hedman(great contract), Vasilevsky & their 1st? Perhaps TBay could add one of Johnson, Palat or Kucherov, instead of the pick? They definitely could assemble an attractive, enticing package. Should Buffalo lose the lotto, might they offer Ristolainen, Reinhart & their pick? With their owners deep pockets, Murray might go farther than any GM to land McDavid(eg:take back 1 or 2 lousy contracts, in the deal) Could Philly offer a Simmonds, Voracek, young D-package? If an unlikely team wins the lotto, would the chance of such a deal increase? All hypothetical, but it would make for quite a story, & interested if any have opinions/insights on this. Would've been madness if the Lindros deal happened in the internet-age. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
