[Proposal] Simple Offseason


Recommended Posts

Trade 1

To FLA: Klimovich

To VAN: Luostarinen

 

Florida get's a decent but raw prospect they can afford to be patient with. Vancouver get's a young 3rd line forward with speed and skill for cheap. 

 

Trade 2

To NJD: Garland 

To VAN: 2nd 2022 + 2nd 2023 

 

The Devils were linked to Garland when he first became available out of Arizona. They get a top-6 forward with term and a top-6 RHD, which also fills a need. They have the cap space to take both contracts easily. The Canucks free up cap room and space in their top-9 and get out from a contract with term on defense.

 

These moves give us a tremendous amount of flexibility next year. If we do well and make a strong Playoff push, we can  use our extra picks (NJD 2nd and NYR 4th) to buy effective depth at the deadline, for example a top-6 defenseman who can PK. If we are not doing well next year, we are in a great position for the deadline as we will have the biggest fish in Miller. Retain 50% on him and get an absolute haul in return from any contender. Schenn would also be a great trade asset at the deadline and would definitely garner interest from contenders as well. Veterans like Pearson and/or Dickinson may draw interest as well. However we do next year, we will be in great position to make it an effective year for the organization. 

 

Pearson - Horvat - Miller 

Kuzmenko - Pettersson - Boeser

Podkolzin - Luostarinen - Hoglander 

Highmore - Lammikko - Lockwood 

Dickinson

 

Hughes - Schenn

Ekman-Larsson - Myers

Dermott - Poolman 

Rathbone, Burroughs

Garland isn't the cap dump we need to consider.   His value is higher then a couple lottery tickets given he's cost controlled throughout his prime and is one of our best 5 x 5 players.   He's also Brocks age basically ... that's the guy we should be considering.   Only reason the team should even consider this would be if they have plans for cap somewhere else or if they just don't like him (which makes little sense other then his size).    Garland age fits the team and has four years left on his deal.    Mitigates the loss of our first last season as well...and allows the team to deal Brock if we need too.     A couple seconds ... 50% don't play 100 NHL games.    Hoglander is a success story. 

 

Edit:  As for Klim...don't look at one of the leagues best teams and expect similar production.   I won't happen.   JR wants more young C's and RHDs.    Think Klim is pretty safe at least for now.

Agree with you 100%, though it sounds like they're gonna give Brock a couple years as well to see if he hit his potential. So I agree he makes sense to move, but I don't think they actually move from either of them, unless they get something really good back (maybe they'll move Brock or Garland as part of a move to get into the top 5 of the draft, but otherwise seems unlikely). 

I really think both Garland and Brock are staying. 

There's plenty of cap room to create between Myers and Pearson trades, a potential Dickinson buyout as well. Poolman on a Ferland-type LTIR situation seems likely too, considering the team's move for a 3rd pairing RD (Dermott). 

Looks like after re-signings, we'll hit 78-79m in cap as-is next year, giving us 3-4m in cap space with no changes. Between Myers and Pearson trades, and a Dickinson buyout, that gets us about 10m more in space. 13-14m into the off-season, to get a couple good RD, and a 3C seems doable!

Thoughts?

I originally had Poolman going to the Devils as well, forgot to change the write up I guess. Originally it was Klimovich for Luostarinen + Gudas and then Garland + Poolman for 2nd 2022 + 2nd 2023. Essentially the same thing just including a Poolman for Gudas swap, which creates some more space for Florida and gives us some more flexibility moving forward as well as a potential deadline trade piece.
