    Maybe, depending on the team. Most say no to that price though in my opinion

    Zucker for Rakell straight up.
    Don't tell me Zucker has struggled, Rakell has too!

    Risto is the kind of player that could explode on a new team. Especially if he actually gets to the playoffs.
    I'd be more than happy to swap them 1 for 1, with retention.

    yeah I kind of knew that.
    My only issue with giving up the pick on him is it's a rental for a young guy with term on a fair salary.
    Risto plays well, he'll be gone the next year as the penguins can't afford to keep him.
    I know Hextall wants to keep his draft picks.
