Team Explanation
Usually I focus on scenarios where Allen is selected by Seattle, and Danault takes a reasonable contract. This time Chiarot is drafted, and Danault gets greedy so we have to let him walk!

-I like Lehky so that trade hurts a bit
-1yr term is all we can afford on Martinez, we need that space, along with Kulak's money to re-sign our RFAs next off-season! I think $4M should be pretty tempting for him? Not many guys his age whose pay isn't trending down already.
-I think Del Zotto can do at least as well as Gustafsson, and might be more defensively sound in the process.

    1. Chiarot, Ben
    MTL
    1. Khaira, Jujhar [RFA Rights]
    Additional Details:
    we need some depth C action, and the bit of cap space doesnt hurt($1.3M QO vs 2.2M on Lehky)
    EDM
    1. Lehkonen, Artturi [RFA Rights]
    Additional Details:
    they need depth on the wings, lehky can move up an down the lineup
    MTL
    1. Rakell, Rickard
    2. 2021 4th round pick (ANA)
    Additional Details:
    a bit of extra salary, without much risk of ruining your spot in the following draft- to help with the rebuild going on.

    Ducks also seem to lean a bit to the grinder/power forward so maybe the softie Drouin could fit in as a playmaker/PP specialist.

    With Ducks picking 3rd, and MTL picking 2nd last- these picks are just over 1 round apart.
    ANA
    1. Drouin, Jonathan
    2. 2021 2nd round pick (MTL)
    Additional Details:
    Both players have similar career pts/game stats;
    Rakell's numbers have faded along with Getzlaf's career, while Drouin's have remained mostly steady(helps when you just dont play!)

    Rakell has only one season remaining vs two for Drouin, but he is to be considered the more valuable player.

    I get the rationale but think Martinez will receive better offers

    That Oilers trade works for both teams.....I think they would both do it.

    Gotta think the Ducks would be looking at a young player with more control if they're selling off Rakell. Considering Drouin's issues, I can't see anyone being in a rush to take that contract on until he's back on the ice.
