Team Explanation
This might sound really really dumb at first, but think about it for a minute and please let me know in the comments if these deals and signings could work out.

For those of you wondering why I made this particular trade, Marcus Foligno is a physical player, a gritty, intimidating presence who can also chip in enough offensively, something the leafs need.

More reasonable trades than most. But why wouldn’t Carolina just keep Hamilton and go after Murray for what your paying for him?

As a canes fan I’ll say it’s pretty unlikely that Hamilton gets traded. It would really surprise me if they can not reach a deal. The only way I see it not happening is if dougie is asking for 10+ mil a season, because the canes have the cap space to give both him and svech about 8 mil. If he were to get traded, I don’t hate this package in return. Nylander rounds out the top 6, a top 15 pick always has value. Anderson and Dermott both don’t interest me a ton but would serve a purpose

so you are adding in that 1st round pick to the penguins trade right, because that ain't it.
