Team Explanation
VGK have reportedly valued Gusev at 2nd+ they could keep Schultz or Flip him as a rental for 2*2nd's giving them the return they wanted.

JJ straight up cap dump to OTT who have space to bury the contract, they're amid a rebuild so would want picks.

Edm have reportedly asked for a NHL ready player in return for Puljujarvi, Rust fits the bill and could work as a replacement for Pat Maroon - He's proved he can play with top talent always looking goof on Crosby or Malkin lines.

2nd might be too low, Hornqvist has great advanced stats and is an valuable to any team however his age and injury concerns might prevent this trade (not to mention he'd have to waive his NTC).

BUF and PHI 1 for 1 swap struggling D-men both have great upside so could see this being a realistic trade. BUF can then Flip Gostisbehere for the Third line centre they could do with and add a pick in the process. again this may require more assets from PIT to make it work.

GMJR already declined Rust for Pulju (and he was probably right lol) and yeah, most rentals go for a 2nd and 3rdish, both conditional, and I just don't think Hornqvist is worth a third/1st, I'd be happy to get a 4th back for him lol I don't think the three way trade works, PHI rejects ghost for Risto (but could add in the situation ig, but that trade wouldn't be one for one) and then if they do get ghost, BUF isn't going to flip him for a 3C that has less value than Risto (even though he's overrated) and a third
