Yeah the league is officially obsessed with big physical players. That's more than Buchnevech. imagine what the capitals could get for Wilson.

Good pickup for Winnipeg. High asset price but also a good cap hit for three more seasons for what he provides. Their defense looks a heck of a lot better than any time in the last few seasons.

Morrissey-RHD Acquisition
Dillon-Pionk
Stanley-DeMelo

real winner: Sakic for getting Toews for the same price, insane steal

real loser: Seattle. Why didn't they take Dillon and make the same deal?

Different context. Isles were way against the cap in a way that Washington was not. Caps had more leverage here and Dillon had the kind of cost certainty that an RFA with arb rights did not.

Why did we pay so much? He's literally overpaid. And worst of all it screws any chance we had of getting Hamilton

Vitek Vanacek is pretty solid, so I honestly think it still makes sense

1. The Capitals gets the same return for Dillon as the Islanders got for Devon Toews.

2. The Capitals traded a 2nd and a 3rd to the Sharks for Dillon and are now getting back 2 seconds for the same player.

3. The Capitals acquired Dillon with a cap hit of 1.6 million. The Jets are now acquiring him at a cap hit of 3.9 million.


This isn't fair for the Winnipeg Jets.

I voted for the Washington Capitals smile

Unless Winnipeg knew that the Canes had Hamilton in the bag before they made the trade.

I’ll admit it’s a bit of an overpay but I love this move for the Jets! This is exactly the type of guy we needed. Physical LHD who isn’t a liability defensively. Winnipeg’s not an easy sell to a lot of players so to get one with 3 years left at a reasonable AAV, I love it!

Tbf Vanecek is a good pick.

WSH gets the dub here. Got a tad too much for a D they couldn't really afford to keep.

I agree but Toews was better and four years younger than Dillon at the time of trade last summer. Jets had a clear D need last summer too. Would've made a lot more sense to pull the trigger on the 2 2nds for Toews last summer instead of 2 2nds for Dillon now and made their team more competitive in the weak North this past year

#quest for all the 2nd round picks

This is a bit of an overpay but I think other teams know that Winnipeg is basically limited to being unable to sign anyone in free agency and can't trade for anyone with any kind of trade protection lol. The Jets reportedly tried to get Nate Schmidt to waive multiple times before pivoting for Dillon

Vanacek is good but I would rather have those 2 2nds and made a slightly better deal for Ned than DET made (a 3rd and a 6th/7th). They'd have the better goalie and far more draft capital

You could get a Vanecek like player for only a 2nd round pick.

So Francis play should have been drafting Dillon, flipping him for 2x2nd and drafting a goalie elsewere or getting one trading away one of the 2nd and keeping the other.

Damn did the drop the ball on creating value...

To be fair to Seattle, Vanecek was one of their better picks

Washington gets more than what they gave to the Sharks for Dillon and they got 2 playoff runs with Dillon in his prime so it's hard to say they lost the trade.

Vancouver fans lose a team to trade Schmidt to in ACGMs.

Winner: Washington
Loser: Nate Schmidt ACGMs

I'd argue a better return because Avs are better than Winnipeg and the 2022 and 2023 draft class are supposedly deeper than the 2021 draft class.
