<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LeafsFanForSomeReason</b></div><div>Obviously, like you mentioned, a #1 C would be really helpful for this team, but another area where I would've liked to see them be more aggressive is goaltending. Talbot can hopefully work out, and I don't think he was a terrible bet to make, but I think they <em>really</em> could've benefitted from a sure fire starter. They're an elite defensive team, but due to sorta 'meh' goaltending the last few years, what should be their biggest strength hasn't really been that advantageous.</div></div>
I agree on goalie being a likely need. But if we had average goaltending last year we'd have been a top 5 team in GAA. The problem was too many soft goals. If Talbot can lock that down, we're good for now.
We don't have anyone in the system who can step in. I'm not a believer in Kaponen any more. So, we'd have to look at UFA. There's Tukka Rask, Raanti, and Grubauer available, but I wouldn't want to buyout Talbot for them.
I don't know. The most likely addition would be a trade for a C1, but I just don't see it happening.
Forum: NHLOct 1, 2020 at 10:02 I've seen alot of trades from ACGMs valuing Dumba at a 1:1 for Monahan or a package deal for prospects. My only experience with big defenseman trades is Brent Burns in 2011, ancient history I know. But I'm wondering what the actual value for Dumba should be?
Brent Burns, RHD, age 26, pts = 43, 27, 20, and 46 for 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011
Devin Setoguchi, RW, age 24, NHL 41 to 63 pts/yr for the previous 3 yrs
Charlie Coyle, C, age 20, Saint John's, 38 to 63 pts/yr for previous 3 years
So what about Dumba?
Dumba, RHD, age 26, pts = 34, 50, 22 (injury shortened), and 24 (COVID) for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019
Wild fans all know how the Burns trade ended up (we lost), but at the time it looked like a haul. Burns was likely to leave as a free agent, which suggests the Wild could get more for Dumba who is locked in for 3 years.
Can we get similar value for Dumba? What does his trade value look like to you?
