Sean Monahan Posted August 7, 2018 Share Posted August 7, 2018 42 minutes ago, SabreFan1 said: An NHL team has hopes that their top 5-7 pick can score 50 points or more. Reinhart is a former 2nd overall pick that has proven that he can and he is still trending upwards after 3 seasons. That makes him more valuable than a 5-7 pick. So the Sabres won't trade Reinhart just for the pick and the Canucks won't package anything with that pick, because of it's value to a drafting GM like JB, that the Sabres would want. If I’m Buffalo and the Canucks, a likely bottom 5 finisher (quite possibly bottom 3), offer me their first rounder in a draft that’s supposed to be quite good I take that deal and get it processed by the league before Vancouver changes their mind. Reinhart isn’t the same player away from Eichel. How valuable is that? Buffalo wants to improve this year so in terms of assets involved I don’t think they’d care to make this deal but in terms of asset value it would be seriously lopsided in their favour. Do you really think any of the teams picking top 5 this last June would’ve traded that pick for Reinhart? Not a chance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
