Junkyard Dog Posted February 3, 2022 Share Posted February 3, 2022 Got bored so decided to make a crappy proposal. This year counts as a year in all trades. 1st trade with the Boston Bruins Boston acquires OEL 7.26M x 6 years Conor Garland 4.95M x 5 years Tucker Poolman 2.5M x 4 years 14.71M Vancouver acquires Brandon Carlo 4.1M x 6 years Mike Reilly 3M x 3 years Jake Debrusk 3.675M x 1 year RFA Chris Wagner 1.35M x 2 years John Moore 2.75M x 2 years 2022 1st round pick or Fabian Lysell ELC 14.965M or 13.115M with Wagner/Moore buried. Boston gets there RW they want which is a big upgrade on Debrusk. They upgrade with OEL for Carlo with OEL-McAvoy as a credible top minute eating D pair. Lose cap at LD with Reilly with the cheaper and younger Vaakanainen becoming ready to take that 3LD spot and add Poolman as a credible 3rd pair RD. They also dump cap they've kept buried with Wagner/Moore. 1st round pick/Lysell is the cost of the upgrades and cap dumps of Wagner/Moore Boston lineup looks like this. Top 9 FWD group Marchand-Bergeron-Pasternak Hall-Haula/Coyle-Garland Foligno-Haula/Coyle-Smith Top 6 D-core OEL-McAvoy Forbort- Grzelcyk Vaakainen-Poolman 2nd trade with the New York Rangers Rangers acquire JT Miller @ 50% retention 2.625M x 2 years Luke Schenn 850K x 2 years 3.475M Canucks acquire Braden Schneider ELC Filip Chytil 2.3M x 2 years 2022 1st round pick Margon Barron ELC Conditional 2022 4th(Turns into one of their two 2nds in 2022 if the Rangers make the ECF). 2.3M + ELCs Rangers net JT Miller who've they've been heavily interested in + Schenn as a cheap 3RD which is a spot they've been looking to fill with the likes of Schneider/Jones/Lundkvist. Rangers lineup looks like this. Top 9 FWD group Panarin-Miller-Kakko Kreider-Zibanejad-Goodrow Lafreniere-Strome-Blais/Gauthier Top 6 D-core Lindgren-Fox K.Miller-Trouba Nemeth-Schenn Canucks shed long-term cap Forward group looks like Debrusk/Pearson-Horvat-Pod/Hoglander Petey/Chytil-Petey/Chytil-Boeser Debrusk/Pearson-Barron-Pod/Hog Dickinsen-Lammikko-Motte Top 6 D-core Hughes-Myers Reilly-Carlo Insert any of Rathbone, Hamonic, Burroughs,Juulsen, Hunt, Schneider In the 2022 off-season Moore, Hamonic and Wagner will all have 1 year left and become movable potentially clearing 7.1M in cap in the off-season. Maybe a team like Arizona will need warm bodies with the amount of UFAs they've got. If not we'd still gain 2.77M in cap with Moore/Wagner buried for a year. This is not accounting for ELCs from these deals that could be on the roster but we should have more than enough to re-sign Boeser, Motte, Lammikko, Highmore, etc. We'd have a lot of cap clearing in the next 1-3 years by the time we're ready to push hard. Adding Lysell + 1st/two 1sts will help build the prospect pool back up. Succession plan at RD would be set with the additions of Carlo/Schneider on top of having Woo. LD would be more of a focus as Reilly is nothing more than a stop gap but we have Rathbone/Jurmo/Truscott there and we will have 2-3 1sts in the draft to address that need. I'd re-sign Debrusk to a short-term 1-2 year show me deal that takes him to UFA. Probably get him at less than he's making now. He could become a trade chip or if he works out though we could re-sign him. We might be 1 over the contract limit but at that point trade out Dowling or someone along those lines. Overall we add youth, especially at D, and lose long-term cap issues(albeit add short term, yet manageable cap dumps). Flame away. OPTIONAL TRADE WITH THE COYOTES Arizona acquire John Moore 2.75M x 2 years Jason Dickinson 2.65M x 3 years Mike Reilly 3M x 3 years Filip Chytil 2.3 x 2 years Jack Rathbone ELC Jett Woo ELC Joni Jurmo Unsigned 2022 1st round pick(NYR or Boston if we got a 1st instead of Lysell) 2022 3rd(WPG) 10.7M Vancouver acquires Jakob Chychrun 4.6M x 4 years Lawson Crouse 1.533M x 1 year RFA 6.133M Zona adds a plethora of picks/prospects and a young forward in Chytil. Cap dumps can serve as warm bodies next year. Lineup for Canucks then Forward group Crouse-Horvat-Pod/Hog Debrusk-Petey-Boeser Pearson-UFA-Pod/Hog Motte-Barron-Lammikko D-core of Hughes-Myers Chychrun-Carlo Hamonic-Schneider D-core would be pretty set for years. We'd have cap going into the 2022 off-season and could add a C or more offense. We'd have our own 1st, Lysell/1st, Klimovich, Karlsson as our top prospects. Flame away. 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
