Tatar traded to Golden Knights for 2018 1st, 2019 2nd & 2021 3rd

I'd probably have rather seen Nyquist moved, but at the same time both are smallish one dimensional wingers, so moving either for a decent package could help in the long run.  That's going to depend on good scouting and smart drafting, something Holland and the current front office haven't done a very good job of recently.  Until we see what comes fromt he picks, I'll give this trade a provisional B.

I have a feeling he's going to put up pretty good numbers for the Golden Knights. Good for him, always liked Tatar and have thought for a while that he may end up being the better of the two between him and Nyquist, but time will tell. I still like the deal though, he's a redundant player here at this point and I want the Wings getting ALLLLLL THE PICKS.

I think he will Do great where he is going also, the Knights have a good set up. I hope Tatar's Future is very bright! :)  I like  the deal, we got some picks  that were needed for him due to the rebuild that is coming!

McPhee is trying to win now, and because he has enough young players in his lineup, he can afford to trade some picks, especially if he brings in guys in Tatar's age range with them.  I'm still surprised they got as much as they did for him though.

I feel like people were saying Tatar and Nyquist wouldn't bring in a 1st rounder. Was I one of them? I know a lot of people thought that. 

Either Mcphee is an idiot or this trade deadline was just ridiculous. 

I think it was a "well, we don't HAVE to trade him" type of situation from our end combined with the Knights wanting some players signed past this year and having some spare draft picks on their end. (they'll have 11 UFA/RFA after this season according to cap friendly) 

Also, fun fact: Tatar is now Vegas' highest paid forward and second highest paid player behind only Fleury. :P

Could always trade the 24th pick for a higher one. 

Actually, think about this, Ottawa is going to tank and probably finish dead last, that would give us #32, then if we finish around 3-8, that's another one in the 30's. That's THREE picks from within 10-12 slots. We can get some quality players there, as long as Holland chooses wisely and doesn't use the extra's on trying to find a diamond in the rough. Three smart, no brainer picks there and we're in business!

With that pick from Vegas, I think we should pick someone out of Fullerton, Ca. I hear they have the most knowledgeable people there, so they must have great players with great minds!

Im from Yorba Linda.  You seriously from Fullerton?

I didn't think either of them would bring a first rounder, consider me surprised. Definitely helps lessen the blow of not offloading Green.

I can honestly say that before all the returns started coming in, I had no clue that Tatar would return so much! I had hoped for a 1st, but I was expecting much less if either were traded. I think in the draft thread I said something like Tatar for a 2nd and or Nyquist for a 1st or vice-versa....very happy with the return and the cap space!
