Nuxfanabroad Posted January 5, 2017 Share Posted January 5, 2017 Been thinking about this the last day or two. They say when the ship is sinking, other GM's will just throw you boat anchors. It's hard to deal regulars when you're playing well, but must be the moment you'll extract the best return(for your assets). There are a number of reasons I'll make this proposal: - numbers of fwds/D we(& Mtl) can protect at expansion - Utilizing Tanev to his maximum-value. By making his supposedly mediocre partner, an NHL-calibre player. Recall Pedan, with CT, he'll probably flourish - Getting JB more picks to work his magic - Upgrading our younger assets - Because I'd say Mtl fancies themselves as legitimate contenders, probably much further ahead than we are(not saying it's necessarily true) - Habs have had a rash of injuries. Relative value of picks is rising now, but they might spend them due to bad health Van sends: Sbisa(with Petry & Weber, they'd have 3 to protect, & expose Emelin) Granlund(Rodin, Boucher or Megna can cover his assignment) Brisebois(local Quebec boy, for Habs) MTL sends: Desharnais(to even out cap, when cleared from LTIR; off books, yr-end) Juulsen(local boy, upgrade on Brisebois) 2017 2nd 2018 2nd - I don't know if we should expect one more asset(eg: young fwd prospect), or upgrade a 2nd to a 2018 1st(conditional on Mtl's PO-progress?) Would time such a deal around late Jan/early Feb..closer to when Jannik Hansen returns. Protected at Expansion draft: Twins, Bo, Baer, Eriksson, Sutter, Hansen.(7) D: Tanev, Edler, Gudbranson LINEUP: Daniel Hank Hansen/Megna Baerstchi Bo Burrows Rodin/Boucher Sutter Eriksson Gaunce Chaput Skille Edler Stecher Pedan Tanev Hutton Tryamkin extra: Biega, Gudbranson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
