aGENT Posted January 29, 2020 Share Posted January 29, 2020 (edited) First let me say that I'm in no sort of hurry to trade Boeser (I'm quite fine with the year he's having for the record) but some other posters brought it up in his player thread so I thought I'd continue the discussion here. In theory, Boeser would be a pretty sizable upgrade to their top 6 W over say Nichushkin. They have the cap space and presumably are pushing for a solid playoff run (which Boeser would help with a lot more than Byram will playing on the Giants) ...just saying. COL also gets Boeser a fair bit closer to home and his ailing dad on a more personal note. On our end, it would certainly go a long way to alleviating any cap concerns we have over the next couple years with Byram on an ELC vs Boeser's near $6m, makes room for returning Ferland/Leivo this year (both of whom are probably a better fit on the third line). We also add a likely future 1st pair D to play with Hughes, who's from BC and playing on the local Junior team (and I'd imagine a pick or other asset given Boeser's current value presently outweighs his). Future D: Byram, Hughes Juolevi, Woo Rathbone, Tryamkin Brisebois, Chatfield Maybe Rafferty in there for someone assuming he translates.
