HKSR Posted January 13, 2022 Share Posted January 13, 2022 To NYI: Pettersson Rathbone To VAN: Dobson Raty VAN does this to give Petey a fresh start, but also acquiring a young bluechip RHD that can pair with Hughes for years. They also acquire a good prospect centreman Raty that could likely slot into the 4th line next year for development and work his way up. Raty clearly has plenty of potential to become a Top 6 centreman. Unloading Petey also allows the Canucks to keep Miller, Bo, and Boeser. NYI does this as it gives them a really solid 1-2 punch down the middle of Barzal and Petey to build around. JG Pageau can then move down to the 3rd line giving the NYI tons of depth down the middle. Having Barzal should take a lot of pressure off Petey and allow him to regain his confidence. Rathbone is also no slouch as he's a very solid defenceman that just needs some more development time. NYI can afford to lose Dobson as they have Pulock and Mayfield, not to mention a very good prospect in Bode Wilde coming up on the RHD side as well.
