<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>coga16</b></div><div>Byram is not trade currency thats why. You dont trade your top prospect and one of the top prospects in the entire NHL for someone who would your 5th best forward,

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HatterTParty</b></div><div>Respect. That’s a great core. No need to trade a stud like byram, I’m still pissed we passed on him. Burnaby Joe has really brought this team back to contender status.

Also, quick question. I noticed landeskog wasn’t in your core. Was that due to his age or just the thought that he won’t be around in the next 5 years or so?</div></div>

It's not such a crazy proposal.

Value-wise a 2nd on its own is not enough to offset the value difference between Byram/DeBrincat, particularly as Jost is worth more than just a 2nd on his own (i.e. 2nd + 3rd), so I think the add would need to be more than just a 2nd to balance the trade. Or just take Jost out completely.

Byram is still only a prospect, whereas DeBrincat is a young 40 goal scorer signed at a good $6.4m caphit until 2023. That said, Byram plays the significantly more important position and is much harder to replace, so I don't think Colorado does this. If a trade involving DeBrincat were to happen it would be more suitable to include Newhook+ instead of Byram, but then that doesn't really make sense for Chicago as they'd be better off sticking with the proven asset.
