    Brandon Montour has more value than that.

    Ya Kerfoot is not great at all. Much rather would have Johnsson or Kapanen

    No not Johnsson. He is on Surgery and has been injured twice this year long term. If this season is done then he hasn't played hockey in over a year :O
    but definitely Kapanen

    Ive watched Ryan Johnson play all season for the U of M Gophers and Im convinced he’s going to be a very good NHL player. He’s a terrific skater who also has a high hockey IQ. I can see him developing into a top-end 2nd pairing LHD who can also play on the PP and PK.

    Ducks pass, Don't need LD, Middlestat is too risky of a pickup at this point of his career, especially for a team like the Ducks that needs sure things if they move Rakell, or as close as they can get.

    Rakell only gets moved for a young top 4 RD / An A RD prospect +

    Tyson Barrie isn’t signing for that little money. Tyson Barrie isn’t signing in Buffalo unless they way over pay. Right now I can’t imagine to many teams would be super interested in Middlestadt, I can’t imagine ANY teams interested at $3M per. Brandon Montour has significantly more value.

    That's nice to hear. I just saw a redraft where he dropped from pick 31 to pick 59. I would think with dahlin here, any pp time for other lhd is going to be limited. Our pk is awful, so the help there would be nice- of course it won't be soon though.

    He also is a great leader I've heard, isn't he a rookie Captain?

    Are we still on the Eichel wants out of or is unhappy with Buffalo? Because I can't find any proof of that.

    He is not a Captain for the Gophers, but he is their youngest player.

    Dude Tuch is having a bad year. Ik he has injury but he has been pretty bad on offense and defense. Risto has been having a decent year.
    Also Vegas needs defense. not offense

    Montour is probably one of the most overrated players on here. Leafs don't make that trade, he doesn't bring anything that the Leafs need. Their center depth is also **** and if they trade Kerfoot it just gets worse. Vegas also probably says no. Risto is really bad.

    Umm risto is decent at defense. Not like a brett pesce but can stop pucks from going into the net. Im sure Vegas won't mind. Maybe Buffalo needs to add a little more
