    Nope, who's gonna play 3c for us after this? Value aside.

    Better suited to lw and I dont think he could be an effective 3c tbh. 3lw sure but not 3c.

    Value is heavily in Edmonton's favor. I doubt LA would touch this with a ten-foot pole.

    And I honestly don't think they'd do that deal for Toffoli alone, nevermind adding anything to it.

    I don't like it from the Kings perspective, I'd rather move top titty out of division and would prefer a younger main piece coming back. Strome is getting to the stage of failing to poop on the potty.

    This is awful for LA. There has to be something in a trade for both teams.

    LA might do it for Puljujarvi.. Strome is $3M of Meh.

    Sometimes all a team needs is a player who makes the world stop moving.

    Would you consider Zacha an attractive main piece in a Toffoli deal?

    Here's a list of centers with more production then Strome.

    Every center in the NHL.

    I think finding a more productive 3C will be easier then you think.

    I haven't seen enough of Zacha, but he is of the age group that we should be targeting.

    Neither have we :laugh:

    He got sent down for presumably a confidence boost, but he’s one of the more enigmatic players on our team. He shows flashes of brilliance, but then it vanishes. One night he’s a 2C with good offensive instincts and elite defensive play, the next he’s invisible.

    I’m not sure I’d trade him for Toffoli, but for discussion’s sake...

    Not good for LA. That might be an OK offer for Pearson though.

    Strome isn’t playing badly per se he’s just completely snakebitten.

    I would probably do Pulju for Toffoli. Gotta give to get.

    I would do Pearson for Strome + 2nd to simplify the package. I agree I wouldn't do it with Toffoli.

    I would consider that. I don’t know if I’d fully trust Khaira at 3C, but Pearson would be a nice add on the wings for us. Only issue is RNH has produced at a 95 point pace since he linked up with McDavid and Rieder - Draisaitl - Chiasson have been lights out together.

    Can Pearson play RW?
