[Proposal] Van-Det

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of chatter about some of the names out there, but haven't heard much speculation about Detroit.  They need a top 4 D badly.... we have a spare top 4 D.  Seems like an fitting trade partner.


I would propose something like:


To Van:



To Det:

2nd or 3rd round pick


Nyquist has fallen off a lot in the last couple seasons but even in a bad year is a top 6 winger, and is still young on a decent contract with term left.  He is a great skater and maybe could recapture his scoring touch and be comfortable on a line with the Sedins now and one of our top lines in the future.


Tatar is almost an equal player in terms of skill and trade value.


The issue on our end is it adds a forward that needs to be protected and gives up a player that doesn't need to be.  It would more likely be something that happens after the expansion draft.

If we're trading Hutton it should be for Duchene or a guy like him. 

I presume you mean if we are trading Hutton, Virtanen, our 1st round pick, and a roster player?


... because that is the asking price for a "guy like him" at the moment.

Hutton doesnt need to be protected. Nyquist does....no thanks.

... our you could actually read the OP where it says it would be something that happens after the expansion draft... but by all means go with your method.

Top prospect and a first?  Isn't that what Yandle returned?


The Rangers acquired defenseman Keith Yandle, defenseman Chris Summers and a fourth-round pick in 2016 in exchange for defenseman John Moore, top prospect Anthony Duclair, a lottery-protected first-round draft pick in 2016 and a second-round pick in 2015. The Coyotes also are retaining 50 percent of Yandle's salary in the deal.

I'm not sure Tanev could get that much but certainly he could demand at least a first or a top prospect - likely not both however.  Now,  if JB throws in an exchange of picks (not giving up picks mind you) into the deal it would be anyones guess how that turns out?
