Imagine the Washington sexy RH-D?

Carlson

Tanev

Niskanen ?!!!

 

TO & TBay would panic!

An executive explained to Bothford that GMs are only willing to pay 60% of Tanev's worth because he is too often injured.  Toronto was even trying to unload Martin on the Canucks and apparently Tampa tried to send Dotchin the other way.  Not sure what else was offered but not a great return.

Crazy stuff CAN occur at TDL!

I wonder if a Leivo-esque deal can be done.

 

Gaunce or Archie + C prospect (Rights to Gunnarsson or Brassard) for Burakovsky could get it done.

 

Both Archie and Gaunce have cleared waivers and can be called up and down freely because of it. It also gives the Caps some cap relief while providing NHL level depth for another long playoff run that can be kept in Hershey until needed. C prospect is added as sweetener.

 

Thoughts?

We need top 6 wingers with size, skill, and scoring ability. 

 

Andre Burakovsky is 6,3 201 pounds and only 23. He is scoring points on a deep Washington team. Can play LW or RW. 

 

He has had wrist issues in the past which might cause him problems moving forward. Consistency has also been an issue. 

 

Overall he is a Canucks type of buy low project.
