BUF might consider taking that, but without retention.</div></div>
Define poor. A young Dman that's top 10 in the D under 22 years old is poor? He might not be putting up huge numbers yet, but a lot of so called prospects that people would value higher than Mete have yet to prove their ability to play in the league.
Poehling has had a bad year, but is still a recent WCJ MVP and has 2C potential. Lots of analysts see his floor as a reliable two-way 3C.
Both fit with the age group of the new core. On top of that 16OA + 55/56OA are key for a team trying to get picks and get younger.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xqb15a</b></div><div>BUF trade is easy no, they need talent on ELC’s not mercurial players who aren’t as good as they think.
AZ trade is interesting but they aren’t going to trade OEL AND retain money.</div></div>
It's been reported they don't to pick at 8th once again for the 10th year. 8th is on the table for an offensive 2C, which is what Domi is.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Gordon_Bombay</b></div><div>How would you explain those trades?
I think Mete and Poehling have little value. So I think the offer you made might get you Dvorak alone, but not both.
The Buffalo one is interesting, but if they can draft at 8, they have the possibility to have a guy around for 3 years at a minimal contract who can produce like a 5m player, so I'd rather keep Okposo, but the offer is kind of fair. I just would not make that deal if I were buffalo</div></div>
Let's agree to disagree on Mete & Poehling's values.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SammyT_51</b></div><div>They still have Matthews, Tavares, Nylander, Kerfoot, Kapanen, Johnsson, Dermott, Rielly, Muzzin and Barrie. They are great team with and without Marner. Hopefully Marner is there for a whole year, but if not, they are fine.</div></div>
People need to realize that Kerfoot is a significant downgrade on Kadri though. I get the Toronto media propaganda. But he's not the kind of player that will drive the play from the 3rd line.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>EthanK24</b></div><div>My thinking is that Reilly is worth more than a 4th, and IMO Calgary needs to clear cap so badly that other teams probably wouldn’t give up any value for Frolik. If they were willing to give up value, I think he’d probably be gone by now. That said, I don’t think that this is a bad deal for the habs by any means.</div></div>
I did entertain the possibility of a higher pick. But I don't think Calgary fans would like it all that much. But that'd probably be an amazing return if the Habs could pull this off:
Reilly (Retained $400,000 by the Habs, meaning that if he doesn't work for the team, they can bury him in full in the AHL. for this year and next.)
WPG's 2020 4th rd pick
CLG's 2020 2nd rd pick
That would effectively clear up almost $3.7M off of Calgary's salary cap.
Then at the TDL, Montreal goes and trade Frolik for another 2020 2nd rd pick by retaining half of his salary for the remainder of the season. (Meaning, Reilly, cap space, & WPG's 4th rd pick become 2 2nd round picks)
