Bozak @ 50% for Engvall, Barabanov, and a late pick?
I dont like it either.
Frank Seravalli was on TSN and said the market for Hoffman is heating up quickly with, MTL, TOR, BOS, CAR, FLA, And Possibly PIT showing interest.
If the Blues can get a player and a 2nd for Hoffman at 50% retained I will consider it a win. I think Bozak stays and ultimately resigns with the Blues, at a reduced rate on a year to year deal, similar to what Jay Bo had worked out with Army.
With where everyone is with respect to the cap, the Blues are retaining. It's merely a question of how much to get it to all work.
I don't think Hoffman/Bozak bring back as much. If they do, it's only because ...
So every time someone incredulously asks how do you think ______ is going to get that much? point to things like this. Do not underestimate someone's desperation and their need to outbid others, and the ever-present belief that he'll be different if he's on our roster, he'll be better!
No, I still don't think we get a 1st unless it's conditional on something like the acquiring team getting to the Finals and Hoffman hitting some target metric(s).
This is not my favorite trade idea ever, but it's certainly better than some will propose. It's in the ballpark of what I'd expect unless someone goes in hot and heavy for Hoffman soon.
I wouldn't give up the late pick alone for Bozak. He's finished.
Not to mention, Engvall is better and more valuable than Bozak at this point.
Why kerfoot a dn Engvall are not needed. This makes zero sense for blues
hard pass from a leafs fan on both hoffman and bozak
