Solid trade for VGK
Actually,
considering What Scandella and Dillon cost, this kind of feels like a steal for Vegas

and finally we can put an end to those Ridiculous MTL ACGMs

Petry for Krebs and a 1st, not happening

Is that actually a trade that people have been suggesting?

So greene gets a second but Martinez gets two seconds, might as well make the New Jersey interim GM permanent because he pulled off the two best trades of the trade market so far.

The fact Martinez has another year left on his contract causes me to give the edge to Vegas

I suspected he was overrated but thanks for proving it!

People getting all excited he has another year but it's at 4M and he's not even worth that imo. Had he been at 1.5M or something like that, then it would be great.

Both teams got what they wanted here. Las Vegas needs veteran defensive help and the Kings will put those two second-rounders to good use. This year's draft pool has an unusual population of right-handed defenders worth choosing in the second and third rounds, so the Kings might find a replacement for Martinez right away (even if he takes a few years to develop).

Fair deal if not a win for Vegas, I bet the deadline will be very boring this season because of all the moves.

hard to judge this. LA has all kinds of problems. It's like looking at a boat with 500 leaks and trying to figure out which one is the one causing the ship to sink.

He's got term which drives up the price, is he worth it though. I don't think we will be able to judge that till we see him in a better situation.
My guess is VGK over paid here.
But we'll see.

Don't sweat it. Martinez is overrated; DeMelo will be a fine addition.

Chevy already got the best D available imo

LA got more than I thought they would.

Pretty weak return for the Kings given that UFA Andy Greene brought a 2nd rounder with a higher cap hit. Good move by Vegas here.

Vatanen will probably bring the biggest return among pending UFA's, imo. Assuming he's healthy by Monday.
