    If Washington loses the series to CBJ, they will probably go full rebuild. And STL has some very good prospects to trade Kuznetsov for.

    St. Louis, on the other hand, will get a very good offensive center at his prime.

    I would love to have Kuznetsov on the Blues but I wonder why Washington would even consider moving him. Even if Washington does a rebuild (not saying they should) Kuzy should be the one they do the rebuild around, he is only 25 years old.

    Yeah I'd think the Capitals would try to move older players first, like even Backstrom maybe.

    But if Kuznetsov became available, the Caps can basically name their price. I'd give up just about anything for him.

    Where did you hear that the Capitals will go on a full rebuild if they lose?

    Backstrom seems more available to me than Kuzy.

    They will still need some veteran mentoring, and Backstrom is better suited for this role, than Kuzya.

    Yes, because the first thing you do in a rebuild (which the Caps will not be doing), is trade a 25-year-old 1C...

    This thread should have been locked after the OP. Noone trades a Kuznetsov-like player for prospects.

    Caps aren't moving Kuznetsov.

    The Rangers on the other hand should invent the first time machine and go back in time and re-correct their big mistake at the 2010 Entry Draft.

    Who are you going to pick?

    Kuznetsov
    Tarasenko
    Schwartz
    Fowler

    Looking back at old drafts are painful :(

    I shed a tear every time I go back and look at our 2006 draft, the ONE thing the Blues have been missing is a #1 center all these years ......

    was about to say no but then you are taking back Allen ...... that one I might bight on, it just matters on how much the team really doesn't trust Allen, That would be up to Army to know how the rest of the team feels about Jake. Its a high price but I am not sure I can stand watching 3 more years of Allen slumps.

    They're losing their best C so I'm sure Thomas would replace Kyrou in this offer

    It would still be close for me also, trading 4 years of Parayko for 2 of Backstorm might be too tough to swallow. Backstrom is cheaper but older and I am a huge Backstrom fan so I might be a little bias here.

    just stop it please.
    Caps won't trade their best players.
    I thought those boards proposals were afwul during the TDL, but after a playoff loss it's even worse

    I thinks it more likely Tarasenko goes to WAS than Kuznetsov to STL, and I don't think Tarasenko is going to WAS.

    how about
    Allen and barbashev for holtby :)))

    I would cry tears of joy if we got kuzy but if we move parayko without getting a legit young RHD in return WE would be screwed defensively
