bobby loocid dreamer Posted June 21, 2015 Share Posted June 21, 2015 Few trades to help move the team toward the future. To NYI: Radim Vrbata, Eddie Lack To VAN: Griffin Reinhardt, FLA 2015 3rd This trade gives Tavares a shooter to play with. At times Halak was excellent but when he faltered last season, he fell hard and the back up situation there was horrendous. He would create a 1A 1B situation there. For Vancouver, we gain a very good D prospect who may be ready for a bottom pairing role in the NHL. If he isnt, not a big deal- we are thinking long term stud here. To STL: Kevin Bieksa To VAN: Tommy Vannelli, EDM 2015 4th Bieksa adds a ton of stability to the Blues back end. For Vancouver, Vannelli is a highly offensive defenseman who is probably 3+ years away from making the club. To BUF: FLA 3rd (72 overall), EDM 4th (94th overall), Dane Fox To VAN: NYI 2nd (51st overall) We acquire 2 solid future pieces for the back end and a solid 2nd round pick that we can now afford to go for more of a high risk high reward type player- landing a Josh Ho-Sang Anthony DeAngelo type guy who falls because of character questions. Fill up that cupboard Benning. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
