<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xspyrit</b></div><div>Erik Brannstrom is surprising as he's quite similar to Aho, he's basically a better Aho.
There's a few players that could interest the Sens
What would it take on top of Brannstrom for each to make it work?
Brannstrom is the exact same size as Sebastian Aho</div></div>
Seems like Brannstrom is much better than Aho. I wouldn't make any of those moves, I was thinking something around Bellows and Brannstrom.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>seanross</b></div><div>Chiarot for a 2cnd</div></div>
I'd do a 3rd.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>UBS_ARENA</b></div><div>We just moved our long term (2 years) cap dump. Why would we trade for another (scandella)?</div></div>
I've always been a Scandella fan and he plays a style I think would fit with Dobson. Plus, he'd cost nothing, maybe even a swap of Komarov and Hickey for Scandella. St. Louis gains a little cap but loses two cap dumps in one year. Isles get a defenseman who can play everyday at less than $4M.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Kotkaniemi15</b></div><div>The habs would need a better D coming in before moving Kulak. Otherwise, he’d cost a mid-round pick.</div></div>
I'd do a mid-round pick like a 4th.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xspyrit</b></div><div>Advice #xx : never look at hockey db for hockey players measurements. Brannstrom has been listed 5'10 in training camps and development camps. He's also 5'10 on EliteProspects, Hockey Reference, etc
I'm ready to give something substantial on top of Brannstrom to get Dobson (need a partner for Chabot). Problem is the Isles want to compete now and picks/prospects wouldn't help.
Actually, what about this lol (would never happen but for fun)
Brady Tkachuk + Erik Brannstrom + another piece (depending on Isles needs)
Noah Dobson + Anthony Beauvillier</div></div>
Enticing but no. I'd rather have Dobson and Beauvillier, even though Tkachuk is the best player in the deal. Makes no sense for the Isles to move Dobson, and Beauvillier is at a reasonable contract.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BallPuckFellow10</b></div><div>I agree that Dermott isn't as good as Leddy, he doesn't provide the same amount of offense but defensively he is really solid. You won't need him to play PP either with Dobson and Pulock taking care of that. He might not even need to play the PK with Pelech and Greene being ahead of him as well. He can just be that solid utility defenseman that can fill in when needed but give you around 18:00 good minutes a night by playing smart and aggressive. He has the ability to play on the PK as well, but his strengths is the ability to move the puck, quickly and accurately, edge work and playing zero gap which forces a lot of dump ins and uncontrolled entries. He has a good and active stick, and usually makes the right decision as well. I am sure someone like Dobson will eat a lot more minutes and assume greater responsibility, maybe they could be paired together as well.</div></div>
Oh, I'm totally on board with bringing in Dermott, trust me. My issue is I don't want him to be the only guy we bring in. I think we need a 2nd AND a 3rd pairing guy. If we bring in Dermott, I want him to be the third pairing guy. I guess if we only bring Dermott in to start the season, see how he does, then bring in another defenseman before the deadline I'm okay with that too. But it'll be just like when we got Leddy and Boychuk back in 2014. One would've been nice, but both changed the makeup of our team for the better.
