<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Prime_Jimbo</b></div><div>Don't get me wrong, Buch is great. I would love to add him. But, Lekkerimaki and Willander wouldn't be included. I'm sure some Blues fans would say that's a must have.

I'd be okay with the first, Pod, Brz and maybe 3rd/4th. Move off Kuz in a separate deal to make the money work and gain back a draft pick.

I struggle with the Henrique deal on top of Buch. Suter is comparable with his play this season. Recently, his all situation play has been stellar. Not to mention Hog has earned top 6 5v5 ice time.

If I were to trade for Henrique, it would be a 2nd + a prospect. Again, could flip Kuz and get back a pick and allow the cap to work.

Not moving Big Z in any deal.</div></div>

I agree with you on the Blues deal, if they would take Brz instead of Lekkerimaki I do that all day, not sure if it's enough to get the deal done though. If this team is <strong>truly all in</strong> then they have to make those tough decisions to add a difference maker to their top 6. At least with Buch he's got two years on his team friendly deal.

I am a big fan of Suter he is far better than a 4th line player but if the Canucks make a run there will be inquires and Suter would be a luxury they could move around the lineup, cup teams have good depth. I think adding Henrique is a solid trade that helps the lack of top end depth, if the team is <strong>truly all in</strong>. He would round out the second line and could be used to take faceoffs (53.4%) on a line with Petey (487%).

I don't think Kuz is returning anything of tangible value at this point. If he is moved it's likely to a non playoff team that wants to take a bet that he returns to better form next season, which is why I included him here but it could be to any team. I don't think he returns anything higher than a 4th round pick though, maybe a late 3rd but I think even that is doubtful. So essentially I see the Henrique trade as being 2nd round pick (Zadorov value), prospect in Raaty. Honestly, I think that could be light with almost 3M in retention.

Just to be clear, I don't necessarily think the Canucks should be all in, but if they truly are I think this rounds out their roster nicely and is probably about the cost to acquire the assets they are going to need. If they are <strong>truly all in</strong>, some pieces they don't want to move will have to be moved.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dgibb10</b></div><div>I like lindholm as a 2C. However, unfortunately for Calgary, he's having a very down year and wants a boatload on his next deal. on the flipside, playing in their favour is the lack of available centers.

If they can get a desperate team to overpay, or a bidding war to start, they could get a very good haul.

As of right now Montreal is helping calgary out by overpricing Monahan. When apparently Monahan costs a 1st, 1st+2nd+Prospect for Elias Lindholm doesn't seem to bad. I don't know what the market is on Henrique but if Anaheim wants a 1st it'll help Calgary a ton. idk who else is on the market as a rental. Wennberg maybe?</div></div>

Lindholm is having a down year, however his best offensive years came when he played with Gaudreau and Tkachuk, I think many C's would have inflated stats when playing between those two players. Last year was the first year since he went to CAL where he didn't get to play with either of those players and his numbers dropped fairly significantly (dropped 18 points), and this year he's on pace for about 10 less points than last tear.

It's within the realm of possibility that CAL gets a strong overpay for Lindholm, but I still doubt its more than what Vancouver got for Horvat last season. I heard an insider say the other day that some insiders think there might not be as many teams buying big this deadline as there aren't a bunch of clear favourites as contenders, it will be interesting to see how that plays out. As for MON, teams often start high with their ask and then drop it closer to deadline.
