Team Explanation
The big issues is with Cozens cause he should be here instead of juniors again but I think the sabres will want to see what they have in mittelstadt.
The other option is to not trade for palat move mitts to the wing there and put cozens in the 3c role.

Risto trade might be far fetched but Vegas could use a PP specialist RHD. Although cap might get in the way with that. But at this point for cap reasons I think risto can get traded for picks unless there is a trade for a winger that the cap hits are similar and makes sense for both.

the roster still needs some trimmings else where with cap being so tight but Im not sure where to do that. could possibly trade montour or miller for more cap since we have 3 solid RHD all getting paid well could use a cheaper contract for the 3rd pair, but having someone solid to help bryson transition would be nice to have.

No deal, in a bad draft class ... maybe but not in this deep one. I'd rather stick with Domi and Lukas Reichel than putting all my money on Perfetti or Raymond to become an elite player.

I'm just putting names on the picks. I'd rather keep my top 6C and draft another guy in early second round like Reichel or Bordeleau that projects as middle six guys than trading this for Perfetti or Raymond (Whoever drops to us) and hope he becomes a first line elite talent (7OA).
