  1. Frolík, Michael
  2. 2020 2nd round pick (CGY)
Additional Details:
Calgary is said to need cap space to sign Tkachuk + a defenseman that's NHL quality to replace Valimaki until he comes back.
CGY
  1. Reilly, Mike ($400,000 retained)
  2. 2020 4th round pick (WPG)
Additional Details:
Salary retention is such that Calgary can bury Reilly in the minors if he doesn't work out for them or when Valimaki comes back if there are no other injuries on defense. Easier to trade him after as well.

CGY accepts as it allows them to sign Tkachuk before camp

EDM Accepts but if anyone argues just make it a 2021 3rd to become a 2022 conditional 3rd that becomes a 2nd if Puljujarvi is still playing for the Habs 3 years out just before he turns UFA


Frolik is a poor mans replacement for Shaw but i really like the idea of Frolik creating havoc infront of the net for Domi just the same as Shaw did as thats what we need right now regardless of their point average .

Puljujarvi should be loaned out to Jokerit's KHL team like WPG did
he'll need a year or 2 where he can be the #1 RW and he wont get that in the NHL or AHL here and will just be developed as a 3rd line stringer .
sending him to the KHL has the added upside of buying Suzuki time to establish himself here as development wise he's way ahead of JP who has scored
less in more games then Hudon who had an epicly bad sophmore year but is still ahead of JP

Love the 2 trades! good work on the value imo. CGY deal makes sense considering where they are at and I love the idea to have Puljujarvi with KK on a line together while giving EDM value back.

Going to have to respectfully disagree.

Other GMs know that we're in this situation so Tre does not have much to bargain with at this time. A deal like this is what we can expect and it's also what we might end up needing depending on how long it takes for Valimaki to get back up to speed. Recovery is one thing but players that miss large chunks of time from the season often don't really get back to 100% until the following season. Reilly is a serviceable defenseman with a low cap hit that can perhaps push Kylington and whoever else they bring on via PTO.

Good take. A lot of individuals right now don't seem to notice how heavy of a cap crunch there is around the league. Once we get closer to training camps & all of the RFAs are signed & some of the remaining UFAs get signed to low deals, you'll have maybe 4-6 teams with 4-7M in cap space, and then there will be 10+ teams looking at offloading players like Frolik to get all of their guys in.

In a vacuum, Frolik is usually worth more. But under this context this is a very fair deal. CLG drops two rounds in the draft, and in exchange they get a guy that's younger, can play a few games in the top 4, and that's under contract for an extra year. (Which in this case, could be burried in full.)

Montreal does this because that's buying early on a TDL guy, and gives them an option to move him later in the season at retained salary for a team looking to make a push or to keep him as their own rental.
