San Jose Sharks:
Traded away a player that should have no trade value and who you might as well place on waivers.
Got a 5th round pick for retaining 562K in salary when the Leafs got a 5th round pick for retaining 1.1 million on Lehner.
A win for San Jose.
Janmark is underated and Chicago's return is not as good compared to what New York or Detroit got at the time for Zuccarello or Nyquist.
The picks going to Chicago can't upgrade based on any conditions.
Now, you're probably thinking Janmark is not like Zucc or Nyquist, which is true.
However, centres are more important than wingers because they make plays, take faceoffs and can score points too, among other reasons.
Championship teams are more often built around their centres than around their wingers.
Chicago also spends a 5th round pick unnecessarily and retain over a million in salary.
A loss for Chicago.
Vegas Golden Knights:
Janmark's performance and production will take off, now that he's on a better team.
An underrated player who can play either on the wing or at centre, he can also play top six minutes and produce points at a good rate.
Vegas gets a 5th round pick on top.
And Janmark is brought in at a cap hit of only 562K and it only cost a 2nd and 3rd.
Big win for Vegas!
In Vegas we trust!
I voted for the Vegas Golden Knights.
