Team Explanation
1) this is never going to happen but I need a break from studying for my legal aspect of sports exam and the " what if" thought popped up. 2) only IF crow is out the whole year it may be acceptable to tank and take the l for the season and be " rewarded" with a higher draft pick rather than Dishing out important picks for rentals to get swept in the first round 3) Due to winning and trading out prospect pool isn't strong, main focus should be future wise but definitely not a rebuild. 4) sleep deprivation + hard studying + always thinking about hockey/ active imagination = me probably looking at what I thought, thinking I'm an idiot and taking it down ?

      Those Washington and Vancouver trades never happen. And just to spark fan interest, the Coyotes aren't trading the # 1 pick either.

      Not even close to the value needed to get Dahlin unfortunately. Maybe those first rounders, DeBrincat, Forsling, and Krys and maybe you have a start.
