Top six forward

Team Explanation
Elliotte Friedman said about two months ago that a possible destination for Galchenyuk would be Buffalo. The only way I can see Galchenyuk having any value on any team would be if there is an extension guaranteed. He's a pending UFA who is struggling and his cap hit wouldn't be great for a contending team. I believe that Galchenyuk can get a fresh start in Buffalo and get his opportunity to play more top-six minutes as well as powerplay time. An early second round pick, which is almost a late first round pick, seems like the best value the Penguins can get.

Rakell has a cap hit of under $4M, three years left on his contract, and is on pace for 50+ points this year on an Anaheim team with weak offense. A 20-30 overall first round pick, a stud prospect, and a third should be fair value. Swapping the third round pick with Buffalo's second is also a possibility. A few years back Brayden Schenn had a team friendly contract with a great cap hit and three remaining years. He was traded in return for a late first round pick, and a mid-first round pick that was top ten protected. Rakell should have a similar price.

Rakell would cost more then that. That's what Tatar would fetch and Rakell would get a better return then Tatar

Kase would be much cheaper than Rakell and probably give us similar production

No just no tatar has been an absolute unit this year and last year was solid as well out performing rakell by quite a bit. You dont gauge value on the past come on.

Galchenyuk will probably go more along the Brassard path this summer with a <$1.5Mx1 get it together deal somewhere. (Even though he is technically out scoring and out hitting Zucker /60 this year)

I'm just wondering how much drugs you have to do to think anyone would give Chucky 4.5M x 4 years after this year.
