    Rakell perhaps? Might even be an overpay for him.

    For that package, you probably want a guy with term though

    Probably but size is an issue I think with that move. Want someone a little bigger to play with Jack

    Or we should just keep Foote. He has top 6 forward potential

    But to answer your question, Guadreau possibly

    Too small. Was thinking Nylander but he’s pretty small too. Wish we had Josh Anderson

    Alright, makes sense. Pavel Buchnevich is a good young guy that I think it could land. He is a left shot winger, and is 26. Yes, he was having a career year this year with 48 points in 56 games, but that could definitely get him. Although, I would probably take out Walsh because in my opinion, it’s a bit of an overpay. Travis Konecny is could land too, and it’s fair in my opinion. He’s a good right shot winger with term, he’s 24 years old. He has 4 years 5.5M. Conor Garland is a guy it could land, again being a bit of an overpay, even though he was having a career year at 38 points in 48 games. He is also, 24 and if a right shot winger. That’s just if Arizona wants to move him, and if they are going into a full rebuild.

    Why? Kreider, Lafreniere, Panarin on the left. Kakko, Kravtsov on the right. I see a lot of rangers fans trading him, and it may be wise if you want your young players to get more experience.

    Neither Kakko nor Kravtsov can handle Buch's first line, PP and PK responsibility, if our goal is to get better now we have to keep our 3rd best forward

    Maybe, but Kreider can. I never said they have to play special teams, but to give them a chance in the top 6 is wise. They are up anyways, and keeping them in the bottom 6 isn’t doing much for them.

    Kakko on the 2nd line and kravtsov on the 3rd line is just fine, and Kreider isn't consistent enough and doesn't play RW

    I know I'm alone on island when I make my suggestion, but the Devils are in a great situation with their cap space to get a real good player with a high cap and trade what you suggest to teams who may want to restructure their team with new found cap space.
    I still maintain that the Leafs and Sabres should be interested in this type of trade with Marner and Eichel being sent to New Jersey. Of course the immediate on ice value isn't shown in the trade for the Leafs and Sabres, but if they can add other player(s) with the new found cap space....that's where the value lies.

    I don’t think so, but sure. There is also free agency for a guy with a short contract, so you don’t have to trade him away when you bring those guys up to the top 6.

    Well I’m done discussing about this Buchnevich trade, and what it does for the rangers. Have a good one!

    I think that you need to be a little more specific in your parameters. For example, do you want/would you be interested in a rental? In that case, Gaudreau (that package) or Rakell (quite a bit less) are possibilities. Do you want a center, or just a wing? Because Nashville would die to move Duchene or Johansson for that offer. Is size a factor? If not, yoou could probably send most of that stuff to Arizona for Conor Garland.

    The guy you want is Alex Tuch, but the Golden Knights aren't trading him, so the first guy who comes to mind is Owen Tippett, but I doubt that the Panthers want to trade him in the same division.

    I want Tkachuk but the cost is way too high

    Tuch is a very interesting option but I agree that they aren't trading him. I would love Tuch on the Devils

    I mean I'd love to get someone more though for Eichel, especially when your looking at 3 amazing centers with eichel-hughes-Hischier. Maybe add Hischier to this offer and take out Foote. I'd do it.

    Not a bad offer but the Devils wouldn't trade their captain

    That should get almost any of the available wings.
    But not sure Devils want most available wings for the reasons that are now available.

    If we trade that sort of package for anything it should be young, top-4 defenseman.
