Additional Details:
Not sure what to put here. Can Chytil play 3C for WSH for a year, in a mostly offensive role, if Eller can handle 2C minutes?

    Most likely. Yes. Van needs RD and has a lot of expensive bottom six forwards.

    We did this couple hours ago, absolutley not on Kuzy. Hes not providing a significant upgrade over Strome and hes irresponsible. Rangers end up in the same position they were in this year with a one dimensional center that cant win faceoffs, isnt physical and doesnt play defense.

    Is Washington actually considering to trade Kuznetsov? Noticed his name appearing a lot more often but I always assumed he wouldn’t go anywhere

    My big worry at first was cap space but in the '22 offseason most of their buyout cap space opens up, and with Smith, Johnson, and Sutter deals expiring, they suddenly have 18M to give raises to Lindgren, Shesterkin and Buchnevich, and and add a 3R, a 3RD, and a healthy scratch. I think they can bring up Schneider and Kravtsov and stay competitive with over 8M of cap space open for the next summer, when they give big contracts to Kakko and Fox, and pick one of Zibanejad/Strome to keep. Planning more than three years out is too optimistic for a league with so many injuries and changes.
