3 way trade

Leafs trade Gardiner, 1st (2020), pick/ prospect
Leafs receive Pesce

Avs trade 1st, 2nd
Avs receive Gardiner

Carolina trades Pesce
Carolina receives 2x1st, 2nd, pick/ prospect

If you don’t think Pesce is worth all that, simply remove whatever excess Toronto is paying above value. The concept remains the same: Leafs manage to convert Gardiner into Pesce.

Why Leafs make the trade: the lose Gardiner’s and gain Pesce. Pretty straightforward.

Why Avs make this trade: Sakic must be panicking seeing the team slide out of playoffs. A move like this is not out of question. Avs have the extra picks they can afford this no problem.

Why Carolina makes this trade: they have so many defensemen, and looking to re-build on the fly, this move gives them a lot of picks they could really use.

Pesce is worth Gardiner and a 1st? I don't think so.

To carolina he's worth more then that I'd say. They have zero need for gardiner as he is a pending ufa that chances are wouldn't sign there anyway. And even if he did they already have hamilton faulk slavin who are each just as good or better then gardiner we'll he might be slightly better then faulk. But anyway unless Carolina has another deal in place to trade gardiner again for something really good they don't make this trade.

Ok I think I have figured out what you wrote there carolina gets 2 1st a 2nd and a prospect and another pick for pesce. yeah I'd do that.

I don't think avs trade a 1rst that could be a top 10 at this point for ufa gardiner.

It's funny if you go to the leafs boards they actually pat each other on the backs for these type of proposals.

Avs will not trade any of his 1st round picks.
Sakic knows that his team is too young right now to compete va winnipeg and nashville.
With this two 1st round and probably 1 or second overall pick, they will have an impact player + timmins + Makar. So he will wait 2 years and his team will fight for stanley cup.
