<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RazWild</b></div><div>Problem is, there are two reasons why this proposal gets shot down by Guerin.

1) Guerin has been quite vocal and stated that he isn't willing to give up futures or the farm just to make a trade. Even if that trade is for a 1C like Eichel, he isn't going to jeopardize the teams future for one player with a massive overpay. Eichel, specifically, isn't worth our top two prospects who're both top 50 prospects in the NHL no less.

It would have to be for one or the other, not both. Rossi <em><strong>or</strong></em> Boldy.

2) Even more importantly, a trade for Eichel by Minnesota standards <strong>cannot</strong> be just strictly for futures. There are major cap concerns that we simply cannot ignore when you trade for a $10M contract, and are already looking at a minimum of $15-18M needed for resigning Kaprizov, Fiala, and Eriksson-Ek to new contracts. Which doesn't even include Hartman who'll probably cost another $3M or so.

That's out of a grand total of roughly $23M in open cap space this upcoming offseason. And this is all before any prospective Eichel trade even materializes.

<strong>Cap needs to be going Buffalo's way, and this cannot, once again, strictly be just for futures as was proposed in this trade.</strong></div></div>

I see your point. I don't believe it's likely, but Minnesota should be should try it. Because no offense to Eriksson Ek, he's good middle 6 centre, but he's not top line and Rossi is unproven so far (he has the potential to be a decent 1c though). I agree that

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RazWild</b></div><div>Then this would be my counter offer.

2021 1st (PIT)
2022 2nd (MIN)

Dumba = 1st + $6M in cap
Rask = $4M for $10M total
Boldy = 1st
Khovanov &amp; 2022 2nd = potential top six center/2nd round value + 2nd = 1st
2021 1st (PIT) = 1st

That's 4 "1st's" or rather 4 1st's in equivalent value.</div></div>

Dumba would likely be part of the deal due to cap. This isn't a bad offer, but I feel like it might be beat, but it's worth offering to Buffalo.
