Legitimate top 6 winger we have wanted for 3 years. I guess his salary wouldn't work for us

Correct. He'd have been a UFA in the coming offseason anyway. NYI will have plenty of cap space to give him an outrageous contract.

Sorry to everyone on here but a good and risky move by the NYI.

 

Also sorry to any Wild fans on here which I doubt. 

 

All I've heard for the last 2 months is that the Wild will acquire Vanek at some point because he's buddy buddy with Pominville.

 

We shall see...

Regier got smoked, as usual. Moulson is a UFA in the summertime, and he probably won't want to stay on such a terrible team. If last season's performance is any indication, NYI's 1st will not be very high.

Exactly where would he have located $7.2m of cap space?

Interesting. Both players are UFA's. Throwing in the 14' 1st and 15' 2nd is the risk. If the isles resign him it is a major upgrade. Moulson is a good 30 goal per year guy, but vanek is a 40+ goal per year guy.

This trade is very similar to our deal to get Shanny many years ago. primeau was a good 30 guy guy but Shanny was a 40+ goal guy and a leader.

True we have no cap room today, but what about last summer? before we pissed away 5.5 million of Alfie, 5 million on Weiss, and didn't use our second buyout on say Franzen? that is 15 million right there! Not to mention the 1.75 million on cleary. we could have traded for both Ryan and vanek and had to good scoring lines! but no......

Wow surprised everyone likes this for NYI. I think Buffalo won here, and NYI got hosed.

Moulson plays real good hockey, and is almost a point per game player. And they got a first and second. IMO Moulson and a 2nd (or maybe just a first) would have been fair.

EDIT: first and Moulson that is

Exactly. You can toss 3M for Samuelson and almost 2M for Tootoo on that heap as well.

I wasn't just talking about Vanek. I'm talking about Quincey being the only player Holland has aquired since Stuart in 08. But we all know this, don't we?

I'm just surprised that Snow would pick Moulson of all people to deal, and that Regier wanted him. Legitimate chemistry with an elite scorer isn't exactly the most common thing in the world. How many players have played insanely well alongside a particular individual and otherwise had unremarkable careers? Cheechoo comes to mind. 

 

Just seems risky to me. Matt Moulson is a good hockey player, but his 30-goal days may be at an end without Tavares at center.

I thought Moulson was a good young player.  They look pretty equal on paper ... both at 9 pts but then NYI had to add 1st round ... I'm with number9
