<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tintin</b></div><div>Seriously hope Devils aren't trading Blackwood. I'm a big believer in him and back him to develop into a true NHL starter sooner rather than later.
I think his underwhelming results as of late are more due to too much responsibility being forced upon him (was supposed to share the net with Crawford last year and Bernier this year) as well as outright playing injured a lot of the time.

OP's tradeoffer doesn't do anything for the Devils anyway.
Two C level prospects and a mid rd pick doesn't fill any need for a team that already sits on one of the strongest and deepest prospect pools in the league.</div></div>

Definitely wouldn’t call Voit a C level prospect, he’s more in the B- range, maybe a C+ at worst. But every report I’ve read and the people I’ve talked to say that New Jersey needs dynamic wingers. I don’t see them getting a top notch one for Blackwood because of his injury history and performance (give him excuses all you want but the bottom line is that his numbers aren’t good). So it’s a future guy that could be a 2nd line playmaker and get you 50-70 points a year. With Blackwood’s apparent disagreements with the team and agent switch, I don’t see New Jersey holding onto him past next season. So it might be smart to move him now before his value plummets more.

The best I could see Toronto doing is maybe moving Robertson for him, but that would have to be a guaranteed retention on Blackwood and a late round pick going to Toronto as well

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>rollie1967</b></div><div>Blackwood is NJs starter....and you expect them to trade him for next to nothing...and retain salary? not even close.
Mikheyev will command more than that as a UFA, and even Campbell could get more.
Ideally the Leafs move one of their pricey forwards and spend a big chunk of it on a goalie- like Husso, but theyre going to have to pay someone to take on Mrzazeks deal- and they dont have that many prospects to do that.</div></div>

New Jersey and Blackwood have reportedly had disagreements and he was made available at the deadline so he’s certainly available at least - this doesn’t stop them from getting another guy too. They can make trades as well. With his injury history and poor play for the last 2 seasons it’s also not out of the question to have salary retained because of it - it’s only for 1 season so it’s not a long term committed retaining.

Mikheyev as I said was signed to a deal comparable to Rocco Grimaldi when he signed. Both were around the same amount of games played, points, and age - Grimaldi signed for $2m so what makes Mikheyev worth so much more? Because he’s a Leaf and people like to overrate him so Toronto can’t sign him? $2.4m is more than fair.

Campbell is a tandem goalie and tandem goalies don’t get paid $4m +.. look at what Mrazek got. Again Campbell was highly inconsistent and not that great in playoffs. He has a injury history and is over 30. Those types of goalies don’t command a lot on the open market. Husso was in the same type of area as Campbell and you think Campbell should get more despite being older? Doesn’t seem right.

Mrazek - as stated in the description - won’t take that much to move. If teams don’t want him, his cap hit on a buyout is just over $1m so it’s not a high cap hit to absorb. Look at what Toronto did to move Nick Ritchie, didn’t cost a lot and got a good return. Mrazek will be in a similar boat.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sensonfire</b></div><div>Each draft pick becomes less valuable the farther down you go in the draft.

Once you get past the second round, the odds that a draft pick plays in the NHL become rather slim.

This article from dobber prospects explains how that is true:

https://dobberprospects.com/2020/05/16/nhl-draft-pick-probabilities/



Also, teams seem to be all over the place on placing a value on each pick and then trading them on Day 2 of the draft.

That's why I made rough estimates.

I explicitly said so in the description.



If you think my values are "horrendous", then tell me what would your values be.

When you try and fail to explain yourself, I hope your feelings don't get hurt :sarcasm</div></div>

I’m not disagreeing with the fact that picks becomes less valuable the further down the board - obviously that’s true.

But when you say the 49th overall pick you think it’s valued at a 2nd and a 4th but the 48th is valued at a 2nd and a 3rd, the difference in 1 SPOT isn’t that big. It would still be the same price for both picks, which is likely a 2nd and a 3rd.

That’s what’s horrendous. &amp; if that hurts your feelings sorry but the truth hurts. That’s awful.

Edit: you’re essentially saying that the 48th pick is worth the 57th and the 87th pick, but the 49th spot which is virtually the same value is worth that same 57th pick and instead of the 87th you drop down 16 spots (which is half the round) - that’s absolutely insane.
