Easy yes from Colorado. You could remove McCabe and downgrade the 2nd and it would probably be more fair value.

One down year and you’re ready to throw in the towel on him after back to back 70 point seasons? Come on dude

I didn’t say I was throwing the towel in. He’s 34 with only two years remaining on his deal. Montour is a 26 year old RFA. It’s common sense. Especially with some very solid UFA forwards available. I have a Rads Jersey and have loved him since the moment we signed him. But if we can make this trade and sign a replacement in free agency it makes the team better

Little too rich for my blood. Kuzy would never waive anyways.

I'd do it just for your 1st (I just threw in Montour because that report saying BUF would move their 1st + Montour for a 2C), but yeah agree, don't think Kuz would waive for BUF.

Age doesn’t mean much when you have a player that can still produce. Sure, he’s probably not that 70-point player anymore, but he’s still a 20+ goal, 50ish point RW on a team that is starved for goals and RW talent.

Gurianov is primarily a LW, but has become a bit more accustomed to the right side. Outside of those two, your RWers are Comeau, Perry, and MAYBE Pavelski (Dallas uses him more at center). Sure, I like Kiviranta & Caamano, but outside of Gurianov & Radulov Dallas doesn’t have a true RW that can step into a top-6 role and be effective.

RD is definitely a need for us, but you’re significantly undervaluing Radulov given his role on the team & the organizational depth chart.

Read the description. Not sure why everyone takes everything so seriously on here like it’s real life. Yes I was bored bringing in some Russians only. Didn’t care about value at all.
