<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jnowariak</b></div><div>I think they’d play hardball to get at Hoglander or maybe add a lesser prospect, but overall it’s close.

The big thing is whether BG wants to keep Dumba for next season or not.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Aero_Astro_Guy</b></div><div>I dont know. I published literally the same trade early in the morning, but I did not have a Roussel dump and my 1st was for 2023 when Vancouver is projected to be more powerful. He gives us back a 2022 first and a good depth forward (not for the money though), the first might end up in the top 10 of a deep draft. I do not see what we could ask more. And we do not retain. There must be a line after which Benning would end the call.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jnowariak</b></div><div>I think Benning’s problem is that he doesn’t know when to end the call...

But I get your drift. Nice thing is that Brackett has a good read on their prospect pool so there could be value in a relatively lesser prospect. Lind also needs to be protected so it doesn’t fully solve the expansion issue.</div></div>

Doubt Jim Benning would do Hoglander for dumba 1 for 1. Hoglander has 2 more years on an elc and plays in vancouvers top 6. His contract is one of the reasons the dumba trade is even possible for Vancouver.

Benning refuses to include Hoglander when negotiating for ekman-larsson, doubt he would include him in negotiations for dumba
