[Proposal] Van-Pit


Recommended Posts

To Van 

Hornqvist+Maata+Hallander  Cap: 10M

 

To Pits

Hutton+Sutter  Cap: 7.5M

 

Pittsburg saves some cap space while moving out some overpaid players. They add the defensive centre they need and a comparable defensemen on the cheap.

 

Canucks get a veteran winger and defender while adding a quality prospect. Hornqvist could be a very good winger for Horvat at the moment although he's aging and slowing down.

Kessel has more value then Hornqvist or Maata.

 

He's not so much of a cap dump as a hockey trade type of situation. IMO

I agree. Hornqvist style of hockey is what Canucks need. But Kessel is elite for goal scoring, he would put Brock on the 2nd PP unit lol

I like it.

Is Hutton supposed to be the best player in this transaction, though?

Its more just a shift of positions with us taking some extra cap and term for a prospect.

 

I'd actually say Maata and Hutton are very comparable. Might even give Maata a slight edge

Aren’t any teams really stepping up for Kessel though.  Older, soft, perimeter player.  We certainly don’t want to have to take him.  We went through Krutov.  That’s enough. 

The Pens are trying to dump Kessel because he’s done.  Why else? 

Maybe the Leafs should get him back?  Kessel for Nylander?  Two teams swapping problems?

Pittsburgh seems to be looking for scoring and not a defensive C.   They aren't built that way anymore.  Rutherford talked about how happy he was to have McCann or Bjugstad play C3.  Sullivan and Kessel have clashed because Sullivan wants 3 scoring lines and he wants to play with Malkin.  They have lost speed and need quicker skilled offensive players.  


They need someone to replace Cullen but he plays 11min a night and was on a 650K contract.

Why dump Kessel if they need scoring?  Kessel has s shelf life with a team.  That’s why he’s being dumped.

He wants to play with Malkin and that's not Sullivan's preferred approach.  It has created tension.  He is also too casual on defence.

 

Rutherford talked about how Sullivan did a remarkable job because it wasn't an easy group to coach - lots of egos to work around.
