2 Proposals ..Van & EDM/ TBay

Recommended Posts

Van: Hutton 2.8 mill

Nilsson 2.5 mill(we've seen enuff!)

Biega (love Bulldog though)

Total : about 6 mill AAV


EDM: Sekeras (tough yr..injury, but think he's a solid D-man) 5.5 mill, fairly steep ticket

Gryba (big righty, in case Gud moves on..help protect youth better than Bulldog would)

Brossoit (local kid, prob to farm. Call up Bachman to finish season perhaps?)


Total: about 7,000,000 AAV, some likely sent down on farm. Next yr we can easily absorb Sekeras' higher cost(compared with Hutton's 2.8 mill)


In 2018-19 this helps Edm stay under cap, with Hutton/Sekeras being the principle pieces. Nurse can handle his role.

Obtaining Sekeras allows us to deal Edler. Leading us to this...




Deal #2

Edler (3.5 mill, only), Baertschi & 2018 2nd round pick

(retain 1.5 millAAV on Edler)


TBay: Palat ..note: high cap hit 5.3 mill x 4 more yrs(no clause yet)

2018 1st R pick

In 1.5 yrs, Yzerman has to give huge raises to Point & Kucherov. Baer can fill(much more cheaply) some of Palat's offense.

We take advantage of a more flexible cap scenario, down the road.

We get killed on the Edmonton trade. So bad


dont think Tampa does that 2nd deal

Well if Edm throws in a 2nd or 3rd..these subjective valuations are diff to gauge..twist my arm, that's fine.


Haven't seen Sekeras this yr, but last season he looked like a solid, steady D-man to me.


Like the size/snarl this lends our back end.

Man, why would you want to trade within your division? Certainly you can find a team in another conference for your proposal. The last outfit i want to do a deal with is the Oil. 

Mostly these are 3 perimeter pieces. I feel Sekeras is the gem of the lot.
