WhoseTruckWasIt Posted January 27, 2017 Share Posted January 27, 2017 This is for Mr. 53, since I felt the need to savage him. Col trades: Matt Duchene LA trades: Jake Muzzin Motivation: LA - They need some offense and they have a great D corps. They can just barely afford it from a cap standpoint and they may well be in a mode of going for it while they can. They get a top line player that has a lot of years left and can slot right in. COL - They get a totally awesome all-around Dman that immediately makes the team better, and can do so for the next 5-6 years. They don't have anything like this player, and it is their greatest need. But, they still lick in net. Why now? : LA- Because they still have time to turn it around. COL- Because Muzzin is a good enough offer to pull the trigger without shopping around. Who wins? : Colorado. You just shouldn't move a D this good. On the other hand, they still have Martinez and Doughty. Reasons not to: Both teams have a good reason to wait for the off-season; this trade assumes that Lombardi retains his cajones. Historical precedent: Irrelevant. No one cares. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
