Tbh from how bad Zach Smith has been for Chicago and the fact Gus is a UFA at the end of the year, they probably win this trade.

I think the trade is pretty darn good! The hard part from the Hawks side is the $4.8M NEXT year. This year isn't the problem, but they only have $12M (maybe a bit more due to cap increase) and taking $4.8 of that away leaves $7M for at least 1 #1 goalie, Boqvist's ELC, and 3 forwards. Possible, but pretty darn hard.

***EDIT*** My bad...I forgot Smith had 1 more year which opens up $3.25 next year. That opens up the cap quite a bit.

Another option (because I do think Gus fits really well for MTL) is picks/prospects. MTL has a really good farm system and a lot of picks. I'm not suggesting it needs to be MTL's #1 this year because it likely won't due to the draft being in MTL, but with Price having 7 years left...would Cayden be available? Maybe Alexander Romanov becomes expendable if Gus gets an extension?

Taking away Smith from the Chicago book would be OK to take Tatar +1,5M for a top 6... as they should trade out Maatta or DeHaan to shred 4M IMO.

Yeah, I made a miscalculation. Thanks for the idea. I'll post this trade from the Hawks POV and get Hawks fans thoughts.

The way Gufs start this season, yes he would be very helpful!
And having a potential 50pts+ D even if he is UFA would cost alot... that's why I took Smith out of chicago book to help them with the cap. Poehling should be back before Xmas as the 3rd C.
Probably we should already negotiate with Gufs extension: 5x7M... and we can trade out Petry at TDL if we missed the playoff or early next year.

The problem is that KK is not ready to be 2c yet. And Smith can't fill that hole created by placing Domi at the wing.

Plugging a hole on defence and creating one at center doesn't make it for me.

I prefer to keep Tatar and loose hi score games with a bad Dcore and wait for next year with an improved KK + Romanov.

Romonov won't fixe everything at is first year IN the NHL...
Peohling should be called up in a week or two and Julien like Weal at C instead of Smith...
But we really need a top 4 LHD promptly!
