Team Explanation
This Calgary trade only happens if they are going rebuild mode. I doubt it would happen but it is a very interesting idea

    It is going to be a top 3 pick, a young rookie dman with top 4 potential, and a solid 3rd line player. Only if Flames go into a rebuild. What more would have to be added

    Well he would be built around most likely so quite a bit

    Agree but can also disagree. They may rather have a top 3 pick. Like i said, it wont happen but just an interesting thought

    Top 3 pick in one of the worst drafts in a while?

    the problem i have in trading for tkachuk is he is an RFA with arb rights, a huge QO and no guarantee you keep him. for what he would cost to acquire, im not sure its worth it. youre gonna have to give him 10 million to keep him from UFA plus alot to the flames

    WSH just paid either a 2nd or a 1st to dump 3M of cap hit next year, so they can give Ovechkin a small raise. Sending a 5.4M cap hit to WSH and taking back a 1.5M cap hit is going to cost the 1st overall pick.

    eta: yes, Ristolainen is more valuable than Hathaway. No. Ristolainen is not more valuable than Hathaway plus Ovechkin. So, yes, 1st overall or no deal.

    2nd edit: if the goal is to get a late 2nd round pick from WSH for Ristolainen, then the on-ice return is more likely Dillon and Hagelin. They're each slightly better at hockey than Hathaway, but they aren't cheaper.
