CaptainLinden16 Posted December 6, 2016 Share Posted December 6, 2016 Baertschi Granlund Sbisa for Gabe why they do it? Have you looked at their roster? They have maybe 4 forwards worth protecting in the expansion draft the rest is waiver wire or one year contract free agent fodder. They lack scoring and they are not trading a young player for picks or veterans. They need LW and LD. All three are 24-26. All of them would be top 4 or middle 6. I think Baertschi would get a shot with Mckinnon. He could make us regret this trade real quick if they develop some chemistry. Why we do it? Because you play to win the game. I am sure we get worse this year by doing it. Probably by a lot! That's a lot of depth gone. We are set to loose one of those two forwards or Sbisa in expansion anyway. Landeskog is a current captain and a poor mans Iginla. These are the type of players that preform in the playoffs. Once we are good again the more Horvats and Landeskogs we can get the better. It would transform the culture of the team by having these two lead the way. It would also make Horvat and Gabriel the first line with Erickson or Boeser. The tankers would also get the added benefit of a better pick this year. -we don't loose a valuable piece in expansion. -we gain a leader and quality young player. -we get a better draft pick this year. i know the post will get flamed because it is quantity for quality. BUT they are all young and performing! Sbisa is on the top pairing right now and Granlund and Baertschi have more points each than Landeskog.
