Hot Takes heading into deadline:
Karlsson: Heads to Tampa: If Ottawa is serious on a rebuild, then this is the best opportunity to trade him
Mcdonagh: Heads to Toronto: Rangers are serious on cleaning the house out. This move makes sense for both teams if they can come to a common price
Green: Heads to Boston: I strongly feel the bruins aren't done. Heading a guy like Zboril could be appealing for the wings
Maroon: Heads to Dallas
Kane: Heads to Anaheim
Zuccarello: Honeslty think he will stay and get dealt at the draft
1 - Ottawa's rebuild is to build around Karlsson. They maybe change up some of the other key guys but they rebuild around Karlsson.
2 - Possible. Maybe more of a draft deal but it's possible ... however, Toronto needs RHD more than LHD.
3 - The Bruins don't need another second pairing guy, they could use a top pairing guy.
4 - That could work, didn't think of that, more Letestu who just got traded twice.
5 - Possibly, but Nashville's a better fit if you ask me.
6 - I agree he stays for now but he's one of the guys they should keep even at the draft. They should move Kreider at the draft instead.
7 - Yes, that's possible, though i don't see it now, or even at the draft, maybe next season though.
8 - That could work, though what would they give up? Not sure if they have what MTL wants.
