I think the Bruins would prefer to let Bussi take over the backup role so Schmid might not be necessary on Boston's end

Sway also gets more especially if term is shorter than 7 or 8, likely around 6.5 imo

I'd probably decline that as NJD.

Not giving up our cheap roster players for a 5 mill 31 year old goalie rental.

Would have to be exclusively a futures rental, with the highest I'd go being the Kuemper deal, assuming there is 50% retention

Lindholm probably asks for more too

don't think they want Maroon at all

5 mill rental goalie probably doesn't go for much.

best comp is Kuemper who came with retention

late 1st, 3rd that was conditional on a cup win, and a prospect. Without the retention you probably just get a 1st, with it 1st 3rd and sweetener prospect (which can go to a 3rd party retaining team if you don't want to pay it)

Has Ullmark asked for a trade? Has Boston been shopping him? He has no value but fans of teams who’s goalie suck post trades everyday for him like Boston is obligated to trade him.
They will just keep him and Sway

5 million dollar backup is an expensive luxury. Boston is lacking at probably the most expensive asset in hockey, center, and moving ullmark would give them a lot more flexibility to find a true 1 or even 2C to replace bergeron/krecji.

That is why people expect Ullmark to hit the market. Also don't act like bruins fans on this site weren't selling him for a 2nd and 3rd all offseason after that playoff performance

And he’s still on the team. A bad goalie is 100% of your team. The only trade you can find is Kuemper because teams don’t give away top goalies.
If your last sentence is true then no one should be making trades for him since he has no value.

Goalies are unpredictable. The truly elite ones don't hit the market no. The prices, the vasys, the igors, the guys who you can TRUST to be elite year in year out.

Ullmark isn't that guy. His value isn't sky high because, while he's been great, there is simply the significant risk that you end up with a 5 million dollar pumpkin. Just look at all the ugly goalie contracts out there from that very thing. Goalies are risky

Goaltending is valuable, but goalies aren't. That's just the way of the NHL

As the post says above. Goalies are easy to get.

Fun fact. Most of the league is unpredictable. Look at all the bad player contacts. The league is littered with players who were left for dead in one place and played great in another.
No team is giving away a good player regardless of position for nothing.
Again, Boston signed him because they wanted him and will keep him before giving him away.

People act as if Boston has to trade Ullmark next year. There cap position says otherwise. They can simply go with two great goalies and he can get his payday elsewhere after next season.

The beautiful thing is that the FA goaltending situation looks fairly terrible, so yeah … I’m comfortable if they decide to trade Ullmark, they’ll get a good return. I’m also pretty comfortable than they’ll target teams out of their immediate competitor base. If he ends up in Jersey, it’ll be because they paid a premium.

One thing is certain … for all the concerns about the unpredictability of goaltenders, it looks like Jersey landed on the negative side of that and Boston on the positive side of that for some reason

If I counter with Dawson Mercer for Linus Ullmark, can we stop talking about this nonsense? Atleast wr are talking about two good players in that consideration.

Says the historical goalie market. The biggest return in recent memory for a goalie was the 9th overall pick for Cory Schneider, a younger, 2 year controlled goalie who’d been probably the best goalie in hockey over the previous 3 years. And even that was a classic Lou overpay not knowing when it was time to rebuild
