Joker with Dahlin eventually, but Montour and Dahlin played together briefly last season and I wasn't a fan of their pairing.
I'm not sold that the Kings would be down to commit to 4 years at a cap hit over $5m. Winnipeg has a need and will be looking to compete this year, Perreault helps match salary, Gustafsson + picks will not impact their team now so I could see them going for a deal like that. Imo Sabres are rich with defensive prospects, so swapping Samuelsson for Gustafsson in essence is a win as well. Rob Blake will probably be a big fan of a 6'4, 220 lbs, physical American defenseman, so for me it makes sense for the trades to be separated. As for the Flames, Valimaki is out for the year and they probably need defensive depth. Maybe Czarnik could come back to help salries match there, or another team will want to take on Scandella at 50% cap hit for a late pick. I definitely think a team will see value in him near the deadline.
