😂 I hope so but I don’t see it with Kakko. I think Miller and Kravtsov have a much higher chance of becoming busts


Kravtsov is a "Franchise prospect" as one Rangers fan said

I don't think Miller will be a bust

I’d be surprised if Kravtsov is anything more than a decent middle 6 winger.

I don’t think Miller will be a bust , I just don’t think he’ll be anything special.

The Ducks and Flames are the leading candidates to get Eichel, per Lebrun. No info on what the Sabres want in return from either team.

I dont get the flames

They dont got the cap space to take on Eichel and I doubt anyone will waive to go to Buffalo as lets be honest any trade probably will revolve around monahan. Now unless Lucic agrees to waive to do a solid for the flames I just cant see it working out for them.

Ducks though make sense. They can trade some assets for him then next offseason with all that cap space build around Eichel.

Agreed, Anaheim seems a lot more realistic, don't see how Calgary has the room without having one of their big contracts leave. Sabres would be beyond stupid to take on Lucic unless the Flames really made it worth their while.

Monahan would probably waive if there’s an immediate trade to another team. A team like maybe Boston, and Buffalo could retain to get a greater return.

Maybe. But if its just to Buffalo Monahan would probs go "AH HELL NO" as misseryville aint fun.

Could see a 3 way trade between Buffalo, Calgary, and Boston as the only way to make Eichel to Calgary work but doubt it happens.

Now if Lucic waives then its potentially possible as if Calgary trades Zadorov + Lucic they can possibly make the cap work

Actually wait did some checking

Calgary can actually make it work

If Lucic and Zadorov are included in any package calgary puts together for him (assuming Lucic waived his NMC) then they got the space to do it. Doubtful it happens but that might be what they are hoping for.

Well, no harm in a little wishful thinking for Calgary, I guess.

Calgary can make it work without including Lucic if both Monahan and Dube are part of the package, the only difference between now and the Monahan+Dube+Zary+1st offer discussed all summer is that we might have to include Gudbranson as a cap dump. Works for us because Stone can play 3RD, and I'm certain there's at least 1 other NHL GM who sees Gudbranson as a positive value player at 2mil. If we can get Buffalo to take Lucic though, that would be best case scenario. Let's be real, Monahan+Dube+Zary+1st is already worth far more than the 4 1sts requested (Zary+1st = 2 1sts, Dube should be worth a 1st as a young, talented 2-way leader, Monahan as an established 20 goal guarantee top 6 C with multiple affordable years left should easily be worth 2+ 1sts despite an injury-affected down year).

Only issue is Monahan most likely has Buffalo on his M-NTC. And I doubt he waives.

Now if you can make a 3-way trade where Monahan goes to a team he wants it could work.

By Jennings? It's horrible. Can't believe they're making you read such garbage. Unfortunately, I can't get into why (political, again). Suffice it to say your professor/teacher must be a leftist.
Go to where @A_Habs_fan is, where they make you read 1984. There's a masterpiece of literature.

Oh, after we have a project comparing 1984 to Trump ( I’m dead serious ) so you might want to rethink that sentence, not going to go in much more detail
