<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Db1899</b></div><div>Palmieri , Mayfield and the worst 4th line in hockey shouldn’t be factored in when discussing a trade for a player. The isles need young players, especially young players on ELCs. I think the isles are the furthest thing from a win now team. The window is closed and they need to focus on integrating young players into the lineup.

I see Nazar on a Seth Jarvis trajectory. He’s a one and done at Michigan and he has a game that will translate well to the NHL

Honestly if this trade happened I hope it would look worse than the Toews trade for the isles. Eventually the isles need to stop treating top of the lineup young players and 1st rd picks as expendable assets</div></div>

I think isles still have something left in the tank they dealt with a lot of covid **** and injuries this year. they played what maybe 20 games with a full line-up and they played pretty darn good, if they would have had 40 games with a full lineup they would have most likely made playoffs with the trajectory they were on the last bit of the season.

Trotz is gone now so most likely wahlstrom, bellows, aho etc will get the play time they deserved but you also got remember is Lou likes to win he isn't a rebuilding type of GM he's not like yzerman who goes through the whole rebuild, retool, compete process, Lou is that guy that manages teams that win so i wouldn't be surprised if he went out there and made a move like this, his head could be on the chopping block next if they don't do well this next season.

Thread: Bob trade
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DogDayCaps2</b></div><div>He has a NMC and it would probably cost more than a great prospect to move 40m for a good goalie. I mean you could to a similar risk on Mrázek and it’ll cost you a fraction of the money and term. FLa needs to retain and pay up.</div></div>

ya but buffalo has 40 mill in cap and in the next 2 years the only big players they need to resign is thompson, cozens and samuelsson.
thompson if he can replicate a similar season to what he did this year will get about 6-7 mill
cozens will get like a 3-5 mill bridge deal
samuelsson probably 2-3 mill bridge deal.

they also get rid of girgensons, okposo and bjork's contracts which is over 9mill.

for the next 5 years the only guys they will potentially having make over 7 mill is thompson, Dahlin and skinner.

so i think it would be a very smart for them to offer up krebs for Lundell and bobrovsky no retention maybe florida adds a little more like another one of their top 4 prospects.
Bob gives them a stop gap goalie for one of their prospects to rise up, he also will help them compete more as that seems to be in the direction they want to head in no more tanking, also helps them reach the cap floor. Plus they get their franchise center in Lundell.

they would have a core of Lundell, Dahlin, Power, Samuelsson, Thompson, Quinn, Tuch, Peterka, Cozens, Rosen, 9OA and 16OA selections. like once they get over skinner and bobrovsky's contract it will be just in time to get all their extensions out most those guys still being on bridge deals and they will have a future dynasty team if all their top prospects and players turn out and at this moment all their guys are developing very nicely.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Knights20</b></div><div>And Hague had a comparable season to Hutton. Definitely not a 4 million dollar defenseman (at least not yet).</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>puckhead6130</b></div><div>Bridge deal.... Plus what has he done to deserve more money then Whitecloud</div></div>

i can almost guarantee you he will receive and OS then if vegas won't pay him more then whitecloud. Multiple fan bases are very high on him after the jump he took this season. He's a 23yr old 6'6 dman that is good at blocking shots and doesn't over exert himself physically because he's big so that he gets taken out of the play, he's also got a cannon of a shot. As a bruins fan id love him partnered up with Mcavoy and i know anaheim is high on him being a dpartner for drysdale. so good luck getting him for less then 3mill, not that vegas has the cap space anyways the minute he is OS he's done in vegas lol. unless you pay to move karlsson or take a lowball offer for Marchessault or Pax.

this ACGM is all taking in account that martinez is moved which will cost vegas a decent amount to move. soon to be 35yr old dman on a 2yr 5.25 mill contract no to mention he has been injury prone the last 4 years and he didn't recover that well last season

Smith also stated he wanted 5 mill aav so that's another thing and i also thing Roy has the potential of getting an OS around 3.5 mill too as he really stepped up this year aswell.

too many cap issues for vegas i doubt they can bring back hague and 1 of roy or smith so many other teams can outbid them.
