Ottawa has a pretty solid guy in Hogberg, not sure they see that much value in Demko. Detroit is the better fit imo. 

 

Actually not bad, they have a ton of cap space as well. And we know Swedes do well in Detriot.. You may be onto something.

We all know these teams have been trading partners in the past and I could see it again.

 

To OTT: Thatcher Demko, Loui Eriksson, Sven Baertschi

To VAN: NYI 2nd 2020, CBJ 2nd 2020

 

Ottawa has 37M in cap space next season.

Ottawa will not make this trade...Give us 2 second round late picks..

Then they have to take Erickson and Baertschi,   ( Demko is the one they want )  2 seconds for Demko is a deal but not taking Erickson..

I hate to admit this, but that’s a pretty good deal for both teams I believe.

 

It sucks because I honestly believe that Demko is the next Carey Price, and people can laugh at me all they want for saying that.

 

I’d probably still be in lichee to say no though.   Demko is in Petey and Hughes territory for me now.    We need to find a way to keep him imo.

 

I do like your proposal however.

Not sure why many are willing to trade Demko while "he's a hot commodity" to try to gain cap space or obtain that illusive super star RHD. 

 

It's a small sample size, sure. 

 

But, he's only 24, and he's way ahead of Marky at the same age. Plus, he's in the same age group as most of the core. 

 

He has the potential to become that elite goalie that every team would hate to play against.

 

Figure out another way to deal with the cap.

Adding Demko to two massive cap dumps and expecting two 2nds in return seems way to optimistic. 

Not sure Massive is the correct term.

 

Loui has 2.5M over 2 years once his SB is paid. We could also take Gaborik back whos on perma IR with 1 year left at 4.875.

 

Ottawa would probably rather pay somebody to play then sit on the sidelines.

yeah it seems like the best fit since Detroit's goalie prospects are all doing meh, and Demko could split the year with Bernier.
