Borgstrom is a 2015 drafte who got drafted 2016, he maybe has a bit more value than Merkley...
Barkov is Laine's best friend or so .
Looks fair for both sides. Hawks get three guys that will get a much better look in their team. I don’t think Borgstrom or Stillman become anything, but they are worth a shot for taking on a minor cap dump. Florida gets out of a contract and moves on from three guys that weren’t on their main roster
In the end, I’d do Hall and Risto. If they could re-sign Hall, get Ekblad back, and rid themselves of Yandle, they’d be in a great spot moving forward. And if Hall doesn’t work out, then he’s gone.
tf happened to Borgstrom? wasnt he a top 25 prospect for a bit?
Prepare to get more shocked when you see all 3 of them play.
Screwed up his development.
Was rushed into the league when Trocheck was hurt and expected to "save the season" and fill in as a 2C immediately. He struggled, and since then his relationship with the team and his confidence was shot. Weird treatment by the team in the following years didn't help either.
He could/should have been more patient and persistent, then maybe he'd have made it this year... but with the trainwreck the Panthers have been most of their existence, you can't exactly blame him for the relationship going sideways.
I have the honor to tell you that you actually understand the point of this trade.
Maybe they can one-stop shop and get Hall and Ristolinen
FLA clearing space for a bigger splash, hold on to your panties
What happened with Borgstrom? Just didn't develop?
I guess it's fair? Can someone give me the "but why?" part?
One dimensional offensive player
Didn't he request a trade after not starting last season in the NHL? Maybe it wasn't a formal request but he voiced his displeasure. This seems similar to the Lias Andersson situation.
Lanky guy who has had problems with physicality. Great skating and hands. Reminds me of Teravainen who Hawks actually gave up on. There's still huge upside.
Florida getting ready to make a big splash, imo...wouldn't surprise me at all to see Savard & Laine end up in Sunrise...
Huge mistake to trade for Laine. He would just be in Barkov's way. Barely NHLer at this point.
Maybe...or it would light a fire under his arse and put him back on the map...either way, I see Florida going in big soon and with Savard & Laine, they add big pieces to an already charged lineup...get your popcorn ready, folks...
Kaapo Kakko would have perfect skill set to pair with Barkov. I would rather get Kakko instead of Laine to play with Barkov. Cost would be Lundell+ but i’d rather have killer top 2 C combo because Barkov can produce with any winger.
Not a horrible trade. I kinda wish the Blackhawks would have stayed patient 2 more days. Brett Connolly & Henrik Borgstrom need to improve by 20-25% but they are the right ages to do that.
Stillman will be useful after trading de Haan. And then we will have cap space back. Trading Janmark is easier now he was due a raise, and Connolly takes that spot. Connolly is overpaid by 750,000 not the end of the world.
We did Florida a favor. The risk was reasonable. Cap space is worth more than this return. Chicago didn't overpay badly to pickup a few lottery pick former first rounders.
Cap dump. Connolly can score goals and is making a slightly high 3.5? It's not a terrible move for Chicago.
Florida creates cap space, Chicago gets 2 prospects to take on the cap space.
he was a reach in the draft by the moneypuck guys. Was rushed, looked lost on the ice other than a few times, never really developed.
Just got online today. So looks like Florida paying the price of some lesser prospects for Chicago to take on Connolly. Sort of surprised Chicago does this... they must think they can resuscitate either Connolly or Borgstrom.
Dumping Connolly's salary. Connolly was a healthy scratch. Borgstrom wasn't happy with his situation and didn't re-sign with the Panthers last offseason.
