<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sporkknife</b></div><div>It's a fair trade, but at this point honestly I would argue Stanley &gt; Risto.

Stanley is Tyler Myers 2.0, Risto has been playing on a garbage team, with garbage goaltending for far too long. The Jets can pair him with Morrissey and I can see them working well together much like Trouba did, but with Risto you have more offensive upside...</div></div> So Ristolainen is garbage.
Is that why Chiarelli offer Hall for him?
Is that why Ehlers has often been mentioned as a fair one for one trade for him?
Is that why Brisbois wanted him for a playoff run two years ago, and then acquired other physical players to win the cup the past two years.
Keep telling your self he is garbage when NHL GM's who have won a cup have tried to pick him up.

Now on to the trade.
Pretty close deal IMO.
I seem to remember just last year most Jet fans thought Stanley was a bust, but they probably know as much hockey as the fan who hate Ristolainen.

I do not think Copp nor Stanley are equal of Reinhart and Ristolainen and there may be better offers, this one is not bad.
Drop the Buffalo pick and make all of the Jets pick for 2021 as I think the Sabres would not want to wait two years receive the benefits of any trade.
I just wonder what it will take to sign Copp.
