    Ellis and Rinne should be "touchable" too

    38 Pekka Rinne is untouchable? That makes no sense.

    Don't know how the Isles would get it cap wise, but Forsberg with Barzal would be a nightmare.

    A winger for Tavares and honestly Rielly hasn’t impressed me much this year idk I don’t really think we need offensive defence men as much anymore

    that’s the plan. Get Barzal a legit goal
    Scorer and finisher finally. It’s such a shame the work Barzal does game in and game out. Kid should have 60+ assists easy every year.

    eh. i dont want to majorly derail the start of this thread but i dont do that. Our D would be very weak and Rielly is overall more valuable than Forsberg. also i dont know why Nashville trades a forward for another dman.

    I mean if they’re clearing house they’re gonna need a lot of players especially since other teams will want a lot of their dmen

    also I don’t think our D is weak. Without Rielly you have

    Muzzin - Holl

    Dermott - Brodie

    Lehtonen/Sandin - Bogo

    and honestly I’m fine with that.

    thats not a defense i would be comfortable with. Rielly's importance is being underrated here.

    if anything i would target Ekholm.

    Rielly is atrocious defensively. If the Preds are willing to do Rielly for Forsberg, you do that 100% of the time. The Leafs instantly become better defensively.

    A good exercise when thinking if your D is good enough to win a cup is to compare it to other contenders. That top 6 is clearly worse than teams like Carolina, Colorado, Vegas, and Tampa.

    Lol, if we end up moving Forsberg the very last player we need as a main piece is a 26 year old defenseman.

    That makes no since to me. Josi and Forsberg are the only untouchables in my eyes. I get taking calls on him but unless young forward prospects are involved I wouldn’t make a deal.

    By trading a top pair defenceman for a winger?

    Rielly is not atrocious defensively.

    Also the ripple effect. Moving Rielly means Lehtonen is a regular.

    The only reasons we should trade Forsberg are if we get an insane offer or if we're pretty sure he won't resign with us

    I’m saying this only if they truly are clearing house.

    if you’re trading forsberg and you ACTUALLY do a real rebuild and trade like 3+ Defence-man you will need another top d

    I think the NHL might need to introduce one compliance buyout every five seasons. It'll make things interesting as a whole because I imagine teams will make trades so other teams will use one that hasn't been used yet. Reason I say that is because there are too many stupid contracts in the league holding teams back, and the Duchene contract is one of many Nashville contracts that need to be bought out because no way they'd be able to trade that contract.

    But also, I imagine nobody wants Rinne as he's getting to his final days and will likely retire a Nashville Predator.
