<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>I think you'd probably have to go prospect or pick.
Hållander is a fairly decent prospect.
Leafs fans love Roberson, but he's like Braco 2.0.
Abramov might fit the bill as well. He's russian, decent skilled guy. Personally I think he's their best forward prospect.</div></div>

I'm not sure an undrafted 19 year old who has yet to play makes much of a difference, yet. If the Caps need a Russian forward prospect for next year, they'll bring up Protas.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ryminister_27</b></div><div>Leafs likely pass. Mikheyev is too important to the bottom 6 and PK. Wilson doesn't fill that need and Hagelin just isn't as good as Mikheyev on the PK. Leafs are also giving up more offence between Nylander and Wilson, not to mention the suspension worry with Wilson. &amp; If you're balancing the cap out there's really no incentive for Toronto at all.</div></div>

Just re-read this (bored) and really, since Wilson started playing on a top line, his offense is pretty darn close to Nylander's. Over the last two seasons, Nylander has two more points than Wilson, but Wilson has five more even strength points. http://www.nhl.com/stats/skaters?reportType=season&amp;seasonFrom=20182019&amp;seasonTo=20192020&amp;gameType=2&amp;position=R&amp;filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&amp;sort=points,goals,assists&amp;page=0&amp;pageSize=50

So I was posting this as if Mikheyev was still on the up-swing. Pittsburgh fans chimed in that with Mikheyev's hand injury he might be done, so there's absolutely no incentive for the Caps to downgrade 1RW on offense, defense, PK, and toughness. With all due respect to Nylander's takeaways and passing, Wilson is better and cheaper.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheMooterus</b></div><div>Instead of just saying "no from Dallas", I'll elaborate a bit more. You're actually not too far off. This deal doesn't get it done, but Legare is a solid start. Given the fact that it's likely to be a bottom-10 pick, the Stars would also need Pittsburgh's 1st thrown in to the deal. A 1st + Legare may seem like a bit much, but given the fact that Legare is a prospect (some uncertainty around any prospect), Gurianov is a young, established sniper at the NHL level, and Dallas has no reason to trade him, any team is going to have to overpay for Dallas to consider a Gurianov trade.

Now let me tell you why this trade doesn't work even at the value Dallas would want; their team is built to win now &amp; in the very short term. With massive contracts like Benn &amp; Seguin on the books and one of the oldest rosters in the NHL, they aren't in a stage where they can really "wait" for Legare to contribute to their roster. Gurianov is already a top-6, contributing forward for the team that made it to the Cup last season. Dallas needs to win over the next 2 seasons, and Gurianov is already helping them do that, while Legare (while a solid prospect) wouldn't be able to help them compete for a Cup in the very-near future.</div></div>

That is way better than just saying no. There's not enough of this on here. Well done.

Good analysis of why the Stars' best young forward is not getting traded, while they have so many old forwards earning so much money.

I'm not even sure the above gets Radulov.
