With that projection, why would they want to trade Jenner? It seems like they'd be in the losing end of the trade.

 

I don't think it would be smart be to trade for Johnson, he'd be coming out of  a shoulder surgery, wouldn't it be too much of a risk?

 

I haven't heard anything about them wanting to trade Jenner. Again, though, I haven't been paying much attention to them -- really, the rumor mill in general -- this summer. If they are looking to move Jenner, it'd be for a big return.

 

Johnson, to me, has always been overrated. If I'm the Wings, I've zero interest in him. I like Savard more, but I'm not sure I'd move Nyquist for him.


Is there a correlation between quantity of trades and organizational success? Serious question to those willing to do the research or who happen to already know.

 

I doubt there's much of a correlation.

 

Personally, when I point out that the Red Wings have made, like, 25 trades over the past decade (next fewest: the Devils, with something like 50), my point isn't "See? That's why we've been struggling!" Rather, my point is that Ken Holland has his head up his ass.

Well according to that "source" CBJ are the ones "VERY" interested in Nyquist so if they're desperate. 

 

They would probably want to move, say, David Savard or Jack Johnson. At 23 years old, Boone Jenner is coming off a 49-point season (30 goals, 19 assists). He's going to be a very good 2C, possibly even a 1C. Zach Werenski projects as a top-pairing defenseman.

 

Another thing to consider: the Jackets are -- or, at least, were (I haven't really read up on them in a while) -- facing a cap crunch. Nyquist's cap hit is reasonable, but if the Jackets are taking him on, then they're probably unloading some money.

When someone brought up that we had us significantly less trades then everyone else for the past 5 years - I think that's because we're really the only team in the situation of doing a rebuild without tanking at some point.

 

Last eleven years. No one has made fewer trades, and it's not even close.

Nyqvist and Smith and a 4th for Werenski and Jenner.

 

Nyquist + Smith + 4th would get you neither Werenski nor Jenner, never mind BOTH.
