<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>Don't like this for the Hawks. Gus is more valuable then Tatar and while i see you're offsetting that with Smith and moving up a round in the draft, still not comfortable with Tatar. He's on the tailend of his career and we have a similar player in Saad. Folin is dead weight...zero value for the Hawks given how deep we are on defensive prospects....Gilbert, Carlsson, Beaudin, Krys, Mitchell, Boqvist, Holm, etc.</div></div>
I thought it was interesting. Replacing Smith with tatar is a win for sure. Yeah, I do think Gus is a really good dman, but we cant afford him next year. Tatar has 2 years vs 1 for Gus. My preference would be MTL can keep frolin. He doesnt add anything to the trade. Stan should still seak other offers, but tatar could also be shed next at the TDL worst case to get more back. I wouldn't be pissed if something like this happened. Let's put it that way.
I also think MTL could trade picks prospects and tatar would help MTL with their playoff chances.
