<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>swinny</b></div><div>I see the same thing. But, Zacha being only 24, one could argue he would be part of the team if the build is done right.
Why I moved Gaudreau and Monahan - seeing that change is needed. If picks are preferred, whatever. Think we see what we see here..... it isn't working.</div></div>
I think one of Gaudreau and Monahan will be moved in the summer, maybe both.
I don't think the returns for either would be very impressive, I think Gaudreau would have more interest than Monahan though.
For Gaudreau, I think it would be something like the Hall from NJ to ARI deal. 1st and 3rd as well as a pair of decent prospects. Lots of Flames fans would be disappointed, but I think that is about what we can expect.
With Monahan I'd kind of look at the Duchene from OTT to CBJ deal. 1st and a pair of decent prospects.
It doesn't make the Flames necessarily any better, but at LW they can go Tkachuk and Mangiapane in their top 6 and at C they can go Lindholm and Backlund down the middle, while stocking up on some futures. I think it would be a mistake for the Flames to look for "hockey deals", because they aren't getting an equal talent to Gaudreau and you're just holding off the inevitable, which is stockpiling picks because I do think the Flames are very close to being a team that needs a rebuild.
