(Proposal) Horvat and Miller


Recommended Posts

Trade 1: 
Horvat for Lapierre + Iorio + 1st + 2nd 


Horvat for Morrow + Drury + 1st + 2nd 


I feel both teams will need to add a piece because of what Horvat brings to the ice and the uncertainty of the picks and players involved. 

Trade 2:

Miller + Schenn for Schneider + Kakko + Goodrow


Kuzmenko - Pettersson - Kakko

Mikheyev - Goodrow - Boeser

Pearson - Lazar - Garland

Joshua - Wouters - Studnicka


Hughes - Bear

OEL - Myers 

Dermott - Schneider


Draft top 5 - Carlsson/Fantilli


I would go into next year with a fairly similar lineup to the one above for another Top 5 pick. This will allow our prospects to simmer in the AHL or overseas for a year or two before they enter the fold the following season (24-25). Mind you, I do see a fair bit of roster turnover in terms of Boeser, Myers, Pearson, Garland and OEL over these next two years.

In my opinion, both those trades are completely unrealistic returns.


You won't get the equivalent to two 1st round picks, plus two 2nd round picks, for Horvat as a rental. Not to mention, neither the Caps nor the Canes can afford to take on Horvat without sending cap back our way. For Horvat I think you might get a 2023 1st round pick + an "A" prospect + a roster player (returning cap). You might get another lesser asset thrown in for 50% salary retention.


Regarding the proposed Miller trade. I don't think NYR would do Schneider for Miller 1-for-1. Let alone adding Kaako to the deal. Most importantly NYR cannot afford Miller's new contract next season. The proposed trade would give them only $14.7m in cap space and needing to sign another 11 players (including RFAs like K Miller, Chytil, Laf who will need significant raises).
