    Devils need to add a legitimate goal scorer to help out Jack Hughes and have the assets to do so.

    two 1sts
    one 2nd
    two 3rds
    and a plethora of forward prospects who are NHL ready (Jesper Boqvist, Janne Kuokkanen, Yegor Sharangovich, Nolan Foote, Graeme Clarke, etc.)

    Looking at teams like TB, VAN, STL, VGK, NYI who may run into some problems with the flat cap or expansion draft this offseason

    Holtz and Mercer are not available.

    I don't think the Devils are going to head in the trading young guys for help right now direction
    I think it's more likely they'll try and find a way to move up in the draft assuming NYI goes deep in the playoffs or trade a pick to a team looking to get out of a contract but they probably aren't going to trade the young guys

    Donskoi could probably be had for a reasonable price

    Agree just stay the course for now if the young guys progress then you look to add in a trade....I'd like to see Foote Hughes Holtz line to be honest.,,.I would not trade Foote or our prospects just keep to rebuild not attempt a retool...,

    I have no interest in packaging NYI's pick to move up in the draft

    they will be picking in the top 5-7...that is plenty high enough

    they need scoring help for Hughes now. He is dominating some games and getting nothing to show for it because they have no finishers.

    Maybe not "legit top 6" but Jake Debrusk likely available this summer.

    I'm sure ZBC meant to include the qualifier that this "legit top-6 forward" should be in the 23-27 age range (i.e., in his prime and therefore able to grow with the team).

    Given the unique circumstances (flat cap, looming expansion draft, surplus picks in a dry market, etc.), it'd be silly to not dangle quality, expansion-exempt ELCs + excess picks for immediate upgrade(s).

    I agree, with what you're saying but trading out picks and prospects hasn't worked before and it probably won't work now, unless someone is willing to drop an established winger who is still young, I can't see them trading the kids at all

    We're more likely to end up with a Max Pacioretty than a Patrik Laine... he'd be helpful for a year then we'd desperately want him out

    right but those were not legit top 6 guys. Johnsson, Gusev, etc.

    I'm talking about a legitimate winger. I am just under the assumption that there will be some strapped teams this offseason who may look to get assets for guys rather than lose that player for nothing to Seattle or something

    This I could get behind depending on the player, but Foote would be a non starter for me unless it was a pretty darn good guy coming back

    I see what you're saying and I'M IN... if the right guy comes up definitely trade any of those players other than Foote and the Islander pick

    Some on the Caps board are thinking that if Jakub Vrana doesn't play well in the playoffs that the team should consider trading him. He'll be an RFA at the end of this season and probably fits what you're talking about for a top 6 scoring winger.

    I'll refrain from spitballing his value.

    I think Vrana would get a good pick up, not a great pick up
    I don't think he goes to NJ and flourishes

    I would definitely love to have Vrana if the price were right

    Mantha doesn't really fit the narrative. He'd be a great add but Detroit is be under no pressure to move him

    Vrana is certainly the type of player we're envisioning here. I'd imagine our NHL-ready ELCs would be of particular interest to the Caps.

    I like Mantha a lot, but I don't expect Yzerman to sell him cheaply. We're targeting potential cap/ED casualties here (i.e., slight discount); Mantha doesn't exactly fit the bill.

    ...a contract in free agency?

    We're in "sell, develop, and see what we have" mode for the rest of the year.

    I would love to get Vrana. I would definitely offer the MoJo deal. 2nd round pick + 4th round pick
