EDM - Konovalov, 2022 2nd, 2023 2nd, Koskinen

NYR - Georgiev

Konovalov is a 23 year old Russian goalie prospect. He’s been playing pro for 4 years already. He has lots of promise and would make a good Russian tandem with Shesterkin in a couple years.

To PIT: $4.375mil
RW-Zach Kassian @3.20/UFA2024
RW/C-Kailer Yamamoto @1.175/RFA2022

To EDM: $4.95mil
RW-Kasperi Kapanen @3.20/RFA2022
LW-Zach Aston-Reese @1.75/UFA2022 (OR LW/C-Brian Boyle @750k/UFA2022)

G-Mikko Koskinen @4.50/UFA2022

LW-Jason Zucker @5.50/UFA2023
G-Casey DeSmith @1.25/UFA2022

Heard Burke is interested in Kassian and improving their Back Up Goaltending, I think he'd move Kapanen before Rust or Rodriguez and maybe they swap Koskinen for Zucker & figure out how to include DeSmith, EDM either adds another player or PIT does some retention.

Help me out, what would a deal between PIT & EDM look like to you?

LD/RD-Nikita Zadorov @3.75/UFA2022
LD-Jusso Valimaki @1.55/RFA2023
2022-7th Round Pick-CGY (if needed)

LD-Olli Maatta @3.33/UFA2022
LD-Tobias Bjornfot @ELC-894k/RFA2023
RD-Austin Strand @ELC-771k/RFA2022

I know LA & CGY are in the same Division, but LA needs more offensive LD's with Edler being injured and CGY needs a more Defensive D-Man for their 3rd-Pairing LD, so if Giordano doesn't happen, maybe this deal happens.

Valimaki is likely far more NHL ready than Bjornfot, so they swap & CGY still has an LD Prospect for the future and pick up Calgary born RD Strand at the same time. This move would also open up $845k in Cap Space for CGY.

Bjornfot is 2 and a half years younger and already played as many games. He’s more NHL ready. I think LA is pretty high on him.

Agree1 Disagree0

Good Point, I was thinking Valimaki had higher Offensive Statistics and might be more composed and mature given his age. Valimaki lost 2 years because of an injury and isn't getting the playing time he should.

Could take Valimaki and Bjornfot out and just go with Zadorov for Maatta, but CGY should try to acquire Austin Strand still too if LA will give him up. Lots of LA fans dislike Maatta, but I find him to be pretty defensively responsible and is +56 at 5on5, just not sure how good of a pucker mover he is, but he might be a more steady 3rd Pairing LD and PK option for Calgary.

BIG NO from TO. This doesn't improve the Maple Leafs and gives up too much of their future for pieces they don't need.

They are in need of a Top-6 LW, not a RW and Muzzin and Holl are their Top 2 Penalty Killers and are also much larger than Gostisbehere and Stralman. There's no way they'd be interested in Eriksson (even 50% retained) over Ritchie either.

Maybe they send Mrazek in exchange for a Draft Pick to clear Cap Space if ARI isn't one of the 10 Teams on "Petr The Great's" No Trade List, but that's about it.

I love it for Edmonton.

I can't see Seattle moving McCann, he's maybe the best overall player on the team, I think they may want to try and resign him, or package him in a deal to bring someone more impactful to the franchise.
Although I know Koskinen is weak, who would you bring in for net? Go with Skinner and Smith?

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Jan 2022 19:12:33
Why does Seattle do it though? McCann is now worth at least a 1st +? and I'd say UFA Jarnkrok is worth a 3rd or 4th. Only way I see SEA taking Koskinen is if one of Grubauer or Driedger goes the other way.

Seattle is a Team EDM could look to dump some guys on to or swap guys with for Picks/ Prospects. SEA would likely be interested in Yamamoto and Ryan, both being from Washington and may take Turris as well.

They'd need to replace Ryan's Centre and Penalty Killing roles by bringing back Riley Sheahan for sure. Jordan Eberle for Tyson Barrie +? might work as well, but EDM should bring back RD William Borgen or another RD replacement to fill the hole Barrie would be leaving. Like Namestnikov, Jarnkrok would be a good acquisition for both the Flames or Oilers. LD Carson Soucy is my favorite Kraken, I'm not sure if they would be willing to move him or McCann though, as they have been their Best 2 Players this year.

Why does NYI do it though? They take on the two worst players in the trade just to give up the two best players in the trade lol.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Jan 2022 18:51:15
NYI does it to get out from under Palmieri's $5mil contract till the end of 2025 is my guess. He's only put up 1 Goal and 7 points in 25 Games = 0.28PPG and he's a -11. I think he would be a bad acquisition by the Oilers. If they want to take a big money risk, bring Brendan Gallagher back home to Edmonton instead.

Koskinen +? for Varlamov would definitely be of interest though and if it's Barrie, EDM should bring Scott Mayfield back in return to replace him, as he would be the BIG Shut Down D-Man the Oilers need. I don't see NYI being interested in taking Turris at all.

Otherwise Zach Parise and Prospects Aatu Raty, Samuel Bolduc and Bode Wilde are the other guys EDM could try to buy or pry from NYI.

Trevor you asked for my Barrie trade:

Ideally it's something like
Edm : Chychrun
Ari: Barrie + Broberg + 2022 1st

Definitely an upgrade for Edmonton with same price point.
I actually think Arizona could then retain and move Barrie for value (he's a great offensive Dman), as well as getting a top tier D prospect and 1st.

If that couldn't happen then I could see a Barrie for Gio or Barrie for Hampus Lindholm trade. + or - a mid round pick

I know I’m a homer for saying this but I wouldn’t want to trade Broberg+ for Chychrun. I think Broberg is going to be a big player by next years playoffs or sooner.

Agree2 Disagree4

20 Jan 2022 19:40:24
Thanks for the post @HockeyDad!

So who replaces Barrie at RD? Koekkoek and Russell? I agree Chychrun would be a nice acquisition, but @ $4.6mil + Keith's $5.5mil + Nurse's $5.6mil this year and $9.25mil next year, that's $15.7-$19.3mil tied up in LD's and both Keith and Nurse have NMC's.

This would leave a big hole on the RD and continues the Oilers problem of giving 75% or 3/ 4 of the Cap to 35% or 1/ 3 of the Players ($61.5mil to 4 forwards + 4 D-Men) leaving just $20mil for 2 Goalies + 13 support players. It means the majority of the team is basically league minimum players and rookies. I just don't see how they expect to win this way, especially when Teams shut down those 8 players. They need to spread the money and talent around, to role their lines and generate contribution throughout their line-up.

My proposal obtained 2 needs in a 2RW in Kessel + a 3rd Pairing RD in Lyubushkin for Barrie and a Prospect (maybe too much, but I also had ARI retaining $3.4mil on Kessel)

Oilers should use players with Trade Value = Barrie, Kassian and Yamamoto = $9mil + Package Koskinen, Turris, Ryan, Koekkoek and Lagesson with Picks/ Prospects = $9mil to bring in needed pieces = 2RW/ 3.4m + 2LW/ 1.5-4.25m + 3LW/ 1.55m + 3RW/ 1mil + 4C/ 750k + 4RW/ 1mil + 3LD/ 1mil + 3RD/ 1.35m + G/ 3.4m = $15-$17.7mil/ 9 Players

N. Hopkins-McDavid-Puljujarvi
E. Kane/ Toffoli-Draisaitl-Kessel
L. Crouse-Hyman-V. Namestnikov
Foegele-R. Nash-C. Fischer

Nurse-Ceci/ TRADE
M. Staal-I. Lyubushkin

Greiss/ TRADE-Smith/ Skinner

This is a far better Balanced and Talented team with vastly improved Defense and Secondary Forward Scoring Ability. It will cost them some Picks and Prospects to unravel their bad moves and mistakes, but they can afford it. Now is the time to go for it, while they still have McDavid, Draisaitl, Nugent-Hopkins and Nurse in their Primes.

Agree0 Disagree3

20 Jan 2022 19:46:20
It just depends whether you want to wait 2-3 years or have Chychrun now.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Jan 2022 17:55:53
Ebs, i think Holland needs to show McDavid and Draisaitl that they want to win now, Maybe your right and he turns into a really good Dman, but the 2 Mega Stars are going to get impatient really soon if progress isn't made now.
And, Chychrun is a really good Dman, Possible Norris Contender in his future.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jan 2022 20:30:49
I agree that the team needs to start winning playoff rounds but that doesn’t necessarily mean Holland needs to make big trades. I said I think Broberg will be playing top 4 minutes next season not 2 or 3 years from now. He’s almost a point per game in the AHL and I think he looked good when he got called up. I don’t think they win any trades involving Broberg or Holloway. There both going to be two cheap impact players soon.
