DinoTambo Posted June 2, 2017 Share Posted June 2, 2017 After reading Morrisex's amusing proposal for Drouin, I thought I'd post a more reasonable deal for the Canucks to get Drouin. To Tampa Bay: Tanev Baertschi To Vancouver: Drouin Callahan (Contract dump) Brett Howden OR their 2017 1st Rd pk. Its basically Tanev and Baertschi for Drouin, and Howden or the 1st is their reward for taking on the Callahan contract. The reason that Tanev for Drouin would need a sweetener like Baertschi is cause in the 1 for 1 Larsen for Hall trade, EDM got a much younger Dman with high first Rd pick pedigree. When healthy, Tanev is an extremely valuable player, especially for a contender like the Lightning...but he's been banged up a lot in the past few years, and I like him, but I think he's overvalued a bit here in on CDC when it comes to trade proposals. . Baertschi would be a nice addition to TB as well. A young burgeoning fwd with no attitude issues who could step into their line up with no problems and could help them win now. Canucks would get a Top line LW, and a good veteran in callahan for the next few years to mentor the young core and who could be a nice trade chip when his contract is set to expire in 3yrs. Plus they'd get a solid prospect in Howden (6'3 C - late 1st rounder last year) who got a taste of the AHL this year and had an impressive 5 game audition (3G 1A). Thoughts?
