A RHD who has averaged over 22 minutes a game for the past 6 seasons, recently put up 50 points in 82 games, and has the ability to play both sides of the ice. I was thinking I didn't give them enough. A bottom pair Dman and a 30 point center (who does have the potentially to be something more). But as I said above, if you end up getting Draisaitl, do you really need another center? Move him out to get something of need. Not to mention I'd think the Jets would want more roster players than prospects since they are in a win now mode for the foreseeable future.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sk540</b></div><div>At first glance, I think edmonton would need a little more, perhaps another first or another top propsect, Leon just topped 100 points, he won't be traded for anything less than that talent.
Conversely, I think trading for Trouba's rights, that is a massive overpay. Now say Trouba has agreed with us to sign a contract extension, I still think thats a bit of an overpay, strictly because A. Nolan's potential, and B. The Jets are going to have to trade somebody with their cap issues, sort of like how Homer forced himself into the situation to trade gagne for walker. I think if they choose Trouba as the asset to unload, we could get him without having to trade NoPa, Frost, Farabee, Provy, Sanheim, or Myers. I would say they wouldn't mind Hagg, maybe ghost, and either a couple high picks or combo of picks/other prospects</div></div>
The way I see the Draisaitl trade is they get a puck moving/PP defenseman. Help improve their transitions and get into the offensive zone. Voracek is clearly a drop off compared to Draisaitl but he's still a very good player and could play with speed with McDavid. Add in the 11th overall pick in this years draft and get and getting rid of Russell's contract is more plus. But I'd be open to adding more depending on what they ask for.
With the addition of Draisaitl, I think you can move on from Patrick to fill a need. He's got potential and assuming he does reach it, would it be that much better than Coots are Draisaitl as they are now? Think he can be moved for a top RHD like Trouba. I'm high on Trouba because I think he can do it all. Think he's be a great partner to Provy. Sides everyone else down to a more suitable role. So WPG gets a center who long term and potentially slot behind Scheifele and a roster player in Hagg.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>csick</b></div><div>Not enough. You likely need to include one of Farabee, O'Brien, Ratcliff, Frost, Lindblom, Patrick or Myers for a deal to happen</div></div>
I was thinking it was a bit low. I went with Vorobyov because I figure he'd help out the Jets now (in the bottom six) rather than waiting for a Ratcliff or O'Brien to be NHL ready. But I'd be willing to swap them if they want.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>wolsen92</b></div><div>You are going to need one more piece for Trouba, he is a young puck moving RHD, he is going to be highly coveted. Is Hayes worth that much, and for that long? I never really thought Hayes was very good and paying him 6 mill +, I would rather make a run for Panarin... but i like these ideas</div></div>
The way I see it, I like Hayes because he can play both center and the wing. Not to mention he can play on PP or PK. For now I'd have him as a 2C but as Patrick and Frost get better, he can be moved to the wing to accommodate them. It's a bit of an overpayment for him, but I imagine you'll have to since he's a UFA. Not to mention with the expansion draft coming up, I'd imagine they're going to lose one good player with or without Hayes. So they'll have the space for him.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Dmh1055</b></div><div>They're going to keep the assets and overpay Tyler Myers. Like it or not.</div></div>
That's what I'm afraid of lol
