2nd Favourite Team

Kurashev also isn't necessarily ready and pretty sure he projects as a winger if he becomes an NHL player. Evan Barratt on the other hand, albeit a season away, could be the future 3rd line C</div></div>
Say there's an extension in place. Do you do it then? My thought process was that Strome has slightly less value than Brodin, DeBrincat has more than Fiala, but the cap space we gain evens it out. A pick might need to be added coming back to CHI, but at its core I think this trade helps fill positional needs for both teams.
I forget who said it, but someone wrote an article recently in which he said he thinks Kurashev projects as a center, contrary to what some other people had said. I'm not sure if Kurashev is ready (if not, just put Shaw as 3C and sign Caggiula), but I liked the Swiss line, and I think that would be a great 3rd line for the future.
