That return is insane, what a great trade by Nashville.
But damn imagine a Perry-Jeannot-Maroon line against Toronto in round 1.
That's the point. Tampa knows what they need in order to beat Toronto, and this is it. They'll do whatever it takes to do so. No matter how much of a terrible trade this is for them, if they win another cup, they could trade 10 1sts for him and nobody would care
Everyone is gonna chirp this trade for Tampa because of the huge costs, but let’s not forget Brisbois has been excellent at identifying guys like this in the passed and overpaying what it seems at the time, but the trades end up working out for TBL. Think Hagel, Coleman, goodrow.
I’ll call it a win win because I trust Brisbois at assessing players.
Hagel and Coleman were playing way better and had teams calling. Goodrow is a good example though. Cost much less though.
Nashville wins this deal by a mile considering the HAUL they got for him. Although, my only complaint is letting Tampa add a condition to the 1st rounder; Preds should've said unconditional or no deal.
