Team Explanation
Ritchie, Berglund, Fast can be had for picks at draft. I can add a pick in any deal to get me better picks.

STRATEGY TEAM DEFENSE.
I have a veteran group that all plays solid 2way hockey. I'm hoping they mix of skill and defense will be respected in the playoffs. Most of the other contenders are leaning heavily on young players or have little playoff experience. We have size, skill and speed. We can play any style needed. Defensively we have no holes. Lines all complement each other as best as I could imagine.
Goal Stanley Cup finals, and hoist that bad boy!

                                                    Would you consider moving Tarasenko? I know the answer's probably know but it's worth a try.

                                                    Granny for Schwartz as a base?

                                                    Or perhaps Ennis for Sobotka as a base?

                                                    Stastny may have a home in Montreal. Waiting a couple of days to get serious into talks, just letting you know there's some interest.

                                                    Forsberg yes, possibly Ard and Schwartzy straight up.

                                                    Huuuuuuge plus. He's a bottom 6, Schwartzy is top line material.

                                                    How much would I need to add. They are similar production wise

                                                    Think Schwartzy is 5yrs younger. And I see him as a 50-60pt guy. Horn is probably a 45-50 guy at this point. But he would be a great fit on that team

                                                    Pairing him with Karlsson? Smart move. Not super high, but he's my best LHD so I need a good enough return.

                                                    I am as a matter of fact. Not that I think he's a #2, but I think he'd pair well with Petro
