Team Explanation
Before getting into rationales: yes these trades can possibly be slightly in favor of NYR, obviously that's my team so.. duh

StL trade
With the horrible events of last night, JBO may be out for the rest of the season.. That's a shot to the LH side of StL defense, Skjei can fill in and is signed for a few more years at a decent cap hit (he'll do better in a system that isn't Lindy Ruffs). Andersson gets his "trade request". Kostin still hasn't broken through StL lineup when players like Kyrou and Thomas have, I wasn't going to reach for one of them with a 1st included.

My view was
Skjei > 30th or 31st
Kostin > Andersson



Colorado Trade
Queue the colorado fans saying they'll never give up prospects, but to get you need to give. I think Byram is really the only "untouchable" prospect they have. Losing Newhook would suck yes, but he won't be helping Colorado win a cup for probably another season or two. These three players help now and bring a ton of playoff experience (altogether 220 games worth). Kaut isn't having a great season in the AHL (and didn't really have one last year either) so one has to wonder what his value is at this point. This could potentially include an extension for both or one of Kreider or Strome.. Strome is an RFA so it's more than 1 year of control. Worst case scenario you wait for an offer sheet and probably get a 1st and 3rd in return. Kreider is the biggest piece for the trade, he has 27 points in his last 26 games and 10 goals in his last 13 games. He's heating up just before the deadline and that will only drive up the price for him.

My view
Kreider+Lundqvist = Newhook
Strome >= Kaut



What this does for the rangers next year:
Gives room to resign ADA, Georgiev, Lemieux, Di Giuseppe.
With 17m in current cap space, it'll take about 10-11m to resign all of them (5,2.5,2,1 roughly respectively)
Cap escalator + decrease in other buyouts + no more retention of names will more than cover the increase from shattenkirks buyout

I think STL if they go outside of the organization to replace Jay Bouwmeester (get better JoBo!) They look at shorter term players like Brendan Dillon from SJS or Alec Martinez (2 time cup winner ) from LA

Don't see Sakic parting with Newhook, he wouldn't trade that #16 pick at the draft to get Kreider in June. Unless he really wants to load up for a run this year.
Strome is a RFA so they wouldn't lose him for nothing next year & Hank @ 4.25 ...hard to tell.

As a Ranger fan, I certainly don't hate these deals. Now, as a realist, I don't see either the COL or STL deal going through. Newhook dropped pretty far for them and now it's really paying off. He's a point-per-game at BC and one of the top freshman in the NCAA. Sakic would have to getting quite a deal to part with him and unfortunately, the combination of two expiring contracts (no matter the player) and an aging goaltender is far from reaching Newhooks value. COL has some key contracts to sign this offseason, guys like Burakovsky, Graves, Zadorov, etc. Acquiring Strome and Kreider may just be rentals and losing two top end prospects for a few weeks of two top-six forwards just doesn't match up. In addition, Franouz has been a very good back up and Grubauer has been exceptional as of late. I doubt they part from that tandem, especially in a midseason trade.

As far as the Blues, losing Bo hurts, he leads the team in 5v5 minutes. However, they have options internally to replace him. Perunovich is close to being NHL ready and his college season will end before Playoffs. They also have Bortuzzo sitting in the ranks. Martinez, Vatanen, or Dillon would be a low-risk low-cost move, rather than acquiring a longer term contract. Wouldn't be great to have more cap committed to a D-man when they have Dunn and Pietrangelo in need of contracts this summer.

Fast trade is spot on though. 3rd round pick, maybe conditional, is his value. Wouldn't expect more or less. Not sure NSH does it though. Depends where they stand in the Central by the time the TDL comes around.
