Gino Gino Gino Posted December 24, 2021 Share Posted December 24, 2021 (edited) REVISED BASED ON FEEDBACK To Carolina: Miller To Van:. Kotkaniemi, Seth Jarvis, Scott Morrow I know a lot of people are excited about the Boudreau bump, but I don't believe that we can really be a contender in the duration of Miller's contract. The return is a left shot center and a right shot center both already in the NHL, both under 22 yo, both with the potential to be top 6. We also get a RD prospect with solid upside. . Things to note: Kotkaniemi's extension would need to be reasonable (ie 3-4 mil max) and done ahead of time. - this might be the largest hurdle. The cap hits are basically a wash halfway through the season. It gives Carolina a better chance of winning now as it does not overly deplete their current roster. They also still have Suzuki and Drury has center prospects coming up. They are also solid and young on right D. (A testament to where we are at in comparison) It gives us depth at centre and a blue chip RD prospect. Some may argue that Jarvis is too small, but he is 19 and already an NHL player. He has lots of time to bulk up. Miller can always return as a UFA if he wants. Hopefully by that time we are starting to look like a contender. The return is basically 2 1sts and a second. Which I think is decent value, though some may want a little more. Edited December 24, 2021 by Gino Gino Gino Wrong name Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
