In Topic: Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

24 June 2014 - 11:03 AM

I guess this will go in the "Teams Future" section.


TO FLA - Thomas Tatar, Xavier Ouellet, 2014 1st Round Pick (#15 overall)

TO DET - Aaron Ekblad.


There is no reason to assume we are going to acquire any "top 4" defenseman this summer because god knows we aren't overpaying for Boyle or Niskanen (and after that who cares). We also aren't getting Shea Weber, Keith Yandle, Mike Green or PK Subban through trade because this "isn't a video game".


So - if the only way to improve our team is through drafting/player development, and we have accumulated several assets by doing so... why not trade what we have a surplus of and complete the youth movement. Tatar is a small, left handed shooting offensive minded winger. He can be replaced by Pulkinnen. Our Defense would look like this for the next few years:


Kronwall   - Ekblad

Dekeyser - Sproul

Ericsson  - Marchenko 


How bright is that future?



Switch Tatar with Franzen and I am sold.

I'm sorry, but even the video games would laugh at that offer.

I disagree. Throw a pick in or a prospect and it seems pretty close to me.

Trade Weiss and Kindl for Edler (they will need a center when after they trade Kesler) and sign Richards and Stralman.
