<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NHLfan10506</b></div><div>It’s not like trading a top center or dman. The overlap of (a) offers teams are willing to pay for goalies and (b) offers that will satisfy selling teams is not big. In fact, I not sure I have seen a single one on ACGM that met both sides for Hellebuyck, Saros, Sorokin, etc.
Here, the ask is not only for Vanacek plus 1st, but also for BOTH Holtz and Mercer (with one fan suggesting Nemec instead of Mercer).
So I would challenge Nashville fans to provide one comp that comes close to that ticket price….</div></div>
I never suggested replacing Mercer for Nemec in the deal suggested by OP.
I said that NSH would have more interest in a defenseman like Nemec than a winger, which they have a lot. So he would be the ideal centerpiece of the trade. And I stated that I don’t see him being available anyway.
Throughout this thread you are mischaracterizing people’s comments and relying heavily on recency bias.
I can think of very few top 5 goaltenders traded in their prime, so it’s hard to say what that deal would look like realistically. The deal by OP is too much imo, but it’s not crazy to think one of Holtz, Mercer, or Nemec would be involved. And if not, NSH simply looks elsewhere. But to suggest a late 1st + a middle of the pack starter is simply disingenuous.
