Speculation: - Trade & Free Agency Talk XXXVI
I’m fine acquiring Nylander as a center. I’m not sure he’s really any less a C than Domi. Where the acquisition starts to make me think is the price point. I’d add to dumba to get it done, but not a ton.
I'd rather end up on the wrong side of nylander being a center or not than have take that gamble with a player like Domi.
I'd be more in favor of Nylander, but I don't know what "a player like Domi" means. The guy has a 70+ point season playing as a center.
I'd be fine with Nylander and/or Domi if we can figure out a way to make it happen.
Domi has a lot of skill from what I can see, but I don’t think his hands/creativity/ceiling are where Nylander is. Nylander/Fiala would terrorize one the PP. I’d put Kaprizov in Parise’s spot and Nylander in the slot.
Not that I think this likely or even realistic, but Matt Barzal is a guy I would look at offer-sheeting. Can go up to a 10.5 AAV and only give up 2 1sts, 2nd and 3rd.
Yeah but NY matches that instantly. Would probably have to go up to 12-13 before they consider not matching.
Yeah there’s no way they don’t. I just want Matt Barzal
Zibanejad was traded after a 51 point season. At 22 years old, it's promising, but not untouchable. Gotta find that kind of guy.
The Fiala of Centers.
EDIT: in all seriousness, I wouldn’t be surprised if Necas could be a Zibanejad in his prime
Yep. Maybe one of the Arizona guys.
If we’re talking u23 Cs that fit the bill, Necas is there if you think he’s a C. Suzuki and Cirieei are other guys, but I’m not sure you could get one of them
Right attainability is key. Arizona has Hayton coming up, maybe changes the equation there a little bit. I know they aren't U23, but they're young enough.
They're also fairly left-side-heavy on defense...
If we want the next Zibanejad, let’s go to where he was found. Let’s get Josh Norris or Drake Batherson.
Gotta wait until they're up for a contract.
Yeah, expanding the market put to u24 really only adds Dvorak when I parsed elite prospects for U24 NHL C options. Tampa is an interesting situation. Cirelli is going to need an extension at some point, as well as Sergachev. They’re going to have to get creative with the cap. My guess is that they offload guys like Palat and Gourde, but I do wonder if it makes Cirelli or even Point expendable at the right price.
I'd overpay for Point. Uncomfortably overpay.
I as well. Throw out your hypothetical max in terms of what you’d give up for him. I personally really like Cirelli, though. Real good speed. Great defensive instincts. Plays with pace and has a motor that would complement Fiala well. 22yo C who probably breaks 50 points. I’d pay up for him.
Khovanov (replacement C) + 3 unprotected 1sts + Dumba
I'd rather hand the the spot to Khovanov than pay that price.
I honestly think Tampa still turns that down.
Probably yeah but damn that's a hefty price and hard to swallow considering we could have had him for just a pick :[
Not even just "a pick". Our pick.
