[Proposal] Rebuild-ish

Recommended Posts

As I see it, we can go down two avenues: sell off everyone who's over 25 or make a few trades that help us get younger while staying competitive. Now I know we've heard Benning say that statement constantly, but, we have a good core in place and we need a management team who can effectively surround the core with good players that fit the team's needs. If we were to take the latter option, here are some potential moves we can make imo:


Trade 1:


To Van: Nils Lundkvist


To NYR: Bo Horvat


Why: NYR was looking for another C in Eichel. Bo can give them some extra depth for a run. They are heavy on RHD so giving up Lundkvist should be feasible.


Trade 2:


To Van: Ryan Hartman, Jordan Greenway


To Min: Brock Boeser


Why: Although Hartman is fitting in well in Minnesota, they have had interest in Boeser in the past and Guerin may make moves that are more long-term planned. We add a 3C that can kill penalties and a young power forward.


Trade 3:


To Van: Phil Kessel (50% retained)


To Ari: 3rd round pick 2022


Why: We bring in a winger that can score and has a winning pedigree. Arizona recoups a draft pick.


Trade 4:


To Van: Nutivaara


To Flo: Dickinson


Why: We fill out our LD depth. Florida seems to have good depth on the left side (please correct me if I am wrong) and adds more forward depth for a cup run. Similar cap hit.


Internal Moves:


Waive Alex Chiasson

Waive Brad Hunt

Waive Juho Lammiko


Call up Will Lockwood


Deadline Trades:


Pearson for a pick

Poolman for a pick


Potential lineup for this season:


Garland - Pettersson - Podkolzin

Kessel - Miller - Hoglander

Greenway - Hartman - Motte

Highmore - Sutter - Lockwood



OEL Myers

Hughes Hamonic

Nutivaara - Lundkvist






What else needs to happen:

The goal would be to keep drafting well and adding young prospects along the way. To do this, we will need to ensure the next management team hires are good ones. With a breath of fresh air from a new coaching staff, I believe the current players we have will be able to bounce back and play better.

Pettersson - ?? - Boeser

Ekman-Larsson - ??

Hughes - Hamonic

Rathbone - Myers






I don't think Pettersson is an elite #1C.  But they're getting there.
