<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>athrin</b></div><div>i would pass on this trade, sens dont realy need Brännström, Erik as they are set on LD with Chabot, Wolanin and Lajoie,
Bellemare, Pierre-Édouard is 33 has ZERO value.
Overall bad trade for OTT.</div></div>
When trading for prospects you don’t look at need. Brannstrom imo has more upside than Wolanin and Lajoie. If in the future you do have a log jam at LD, you could easily trade one of them for help at another position. Look at the Kessel trade for example, the leafs already had Nylander and Marner at the RW position, yet they still opted to trade for Kapanen. Now that the Leafs are loaded on the RW, Kapanen will probably be traded for a RD. Also PEB, could easily be flipped for a late round pick, the sens don’t necessarily need to keep him.
