    Of course Vancouver would never pay that price. It would be suicide for them. That's why I think it's incredibly hard to acquire two players of that ability, in the same trade. The cost to your prospect pool and ELC contract pool is just to high... Those guys are too important in a cap era.

    My buddy is a huge Canucks fan. I asked him tonight if he'd do Pearson and Podkolzin for Forsberg. He even cringed over that because of how cash strapped Vancouver is.

    What do you think the chances are yoy guys would be willing to do a 2nd in 2021 and let's say a 3rd in 2022 to get a team like Ottawa to eat Eriksson so you can breathe financially?

    What would Preds fans say to Kapanen for Arvidsson?

    I think this is more of a motivating tactic. It’s a “Get your ass in gear or you might be gone” move, which is an indictment on the coach. They might listen to offers on Forsberg, but I think it would require a hefty price to get the conversation started.

    Its interesting to see that Forsberg might be available. I guess its because FF9 doesnt have that much left on his contract. I assume if there is a team out there ready ship thier future for a win now trade, it might be done.

    Bennett, Pelletier, and a 1st for Forsberg at 5 mill? Something else can be added as well.

    Sort of hoped to see Rinne as veteran backup for the possible playoffs in Washington (for both reasons, Caps need one and Rinne to have a chance to participate in playoffs), but gotta respect that they wont sell their soul for some lowly draft picks. We need more loyalty in todays sports.

    Nick Bonino and a pick upgrade seems to be a reasonable guess.

    Nashville might do better holding on to Ekholm until after expansion draft. How many teams would give top dollar for Ekholm AND expose an extra D in expansion?

    I would love foresberg on the leafs but Nylander would have to be part of the deal due to cap reasons .

    I’m not sure if Nylander is somthing the preads would be interested in

    Nylander , Liljegren , Alex kerfoot + 1st round pick 2021, second round pick 2022

    for
    Forsberg + granlund

    I haven't read all 15 pages, but I have two thoughts regarding Ellis and Forsberg.

    1. Ellis: I'd speculate that the reason he is not available is because he is a competent humble guy. Throughout his entire career he has been known as a leader. It's possible that managment would want to keep that leadership ability for the locker room if they were to blow up the team and get younger.

    2. Forsberg is only 26 and in his prime. I suspect Poile would field calls for him, but trading him would be an admission of tearing it down and starting over. Because of that, don't think similar age, or older, players with big contracts would be enticing. Hopefully, the least acceptable offer would be a 1st + highly touted young prospect/player that is thought to have a strong chance to at least reach the level Forsberg is at now.

    That's fair, something around Monahan then? I think Monahan and Bennett for Arvidsson and a top 9 forward like Jarnkrok, Sissons, Haula, etc. is also good.

    what the hell

    Nylander is worth more than Forsberg so this is basically a very very hefty Granlund deal.

    I'll suggest it again since no one yelled at me a few pages ago.

    Ekholm for Mantha. Straight up.

    Not the direction we should be going if we move Ekholm.

    I'm a visual person. Here's how I see the Preds' "yard Sale"

    upload_2021-2-22_22-5-59.png

    Make a good offer because the Preds could trade for someone else, AND they can wait for Seattle. They will have picks, cap, and a need for players. Not like the picks they have are getting any worse.

    Also, other teams might jump you. I KNOW Pittsburgh would be sniffing around Forsberg.

    Johansen back tomorrow, Ekholm Saturday

    BTW: the Preds CAN eat some cap BUT it's a limited resource. The sooner the better.
