Big trade with the Calgary Flames

Created by: Minnachu
Initial Creation Date: Aug. 1, 2022
Published: Aug. 1, 2022
Team: 2022-23 Ottawa Senators
Team Explanation
I'm both a Flames and Sens fan. The reason the I think both should do this trade is because it fits a need for both teams. Flames need a promising young center that has the potential to be a 2C in a long run. Sens need another top 4 RHD to complete their lineup. Pinto would be overshadowed by Norris and Stutzle, and the Sens still have options for 3C and 4C. Obviously Zaitsev needs to be taken back for salary reasons, and that's why JBD is used as a sweetener. If Sens get a legit stud RHD like Weegar, and still have Thomson, JBD becomes more redundant.

Weegar agrees to a 6x6.5 extension.

Sens just have no reason to be moving Pinto and a 1st for Weegar. Weegar is a pending UFA who can probably end up here for free anyway next summer. The Sens don't need to blow the doors out for him right now. That's not to say you don't pursue adding him this year, but it has to be a price that makes sense, and this Really isn't.

Pinto is going to be an important part of Ottawa having competitive forward depth. Especially in the face of the uncertainty around Formenton and Batherson, trading either of Greig or Pinto is extremely unlikely imo.

Pinto really could be one of the most important pieces the Sens have in the next few years. losing him for a season and being put in the lineup behind Stuzle and Norris, means he is likely easy to keep a lower profile and get him signed to a steal of an AAV deal.

I am waiting for his faceoff skills and passing to really blossom at the NHL level as it did in University, he could easily be a top 5 play in the NHL for Faceoff PErcentage and a valuable PK player then add great secondary scoring from a 3 C line getting great line match ups.

That being said this deal is WAY overpay for weager as mentioned above it is unneeded. Sens are really starting their playoff winning window next season so no need to throw out the prospect pool for players yet.
