ABNuck Posted June 10, 2015 Share Posted June 10, 2015 Doesn't benefit us at all, but still fun to predict what Chiarelli might do...so here goes: DEAL 1: Eberle to NYI for Hamonic and 2016 1st (should be a middle pick) Why EDM does deal - obvious help on blueline + Yakupov steps up + (2) 1st RD picks next year Why NYI does deal - you're kidding right? Tavares with Eberle on his wing...lights out. DEAL 2: Draisaitl and PIT 1st (16 O/A) to CAR for Cam Ward Why EDM does deal - again, obvious...need starter (Ward + Scrivens as backup) and with McSaviour coming to town it makes Leon expendable. Why CAR does deal - Ward has 1 year left and feels it's time to move on. What better place than back to Alberta where he grew up and played for the Rebels. E.Staal may also be thinking it's time to move on so move brother Jordan up to 1st line and slide Leon into #2 spot. You also free up a boat load of cash to go after Niemi and add some additional D-depth (which they are sorely lacking). So in the end EDM adds a top 4 D and a starter G plus defers their extra 1st RD pick to next year. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
