To OTTAWA: $11.3-$13.3 million
LW/RW-Matthew Tkachuk @$9-11m/RFA22
RW-Jack Beck @Signing Rights
LD/RD-Jusso Valimaki @1.55/RFA23
G-Dan Vladar @750k/RFA23

To CALGARY: $12.1625 million
2022-1st Round Pick-OTT
2022-2nd Round Pick-OTT
RW-Drake Batherson @4.975/UFA27
LW-Connor Brown @3.6/UFA23
RW-Austin Watson @1.5/UFA23
LD-Nick Holden @1.3/UFA23
C-Mark Kastelic @ELC/RFA23
LW-Egor Sokolov @ELC/RFA23
G-Filip Gustavsson @787.5k/RFA23

Compare this with the Erik Karlsson Trade to SJ, where he and a Prospect (similar to Beck or Kerins) were Traded for a RD Prospect (Demelo) + Centre Prospect (Tierney) + LW Prospect (Balcers) + Excellent Centre Prospect (J.Norris) + Top-10 1st RD Pick (#3-T.Stutzle) + 2nd Round Pick (#39) + 2nd Round Pick (#44)

Hell no from Ottawa.
Everything but Drake I’d be fine with. If it costs a 1st line winger on a very good contract for a 1st line winger that we’d have to overpay, then no thank you.

The Karlsson pick was expected to be low and ended up being high.

An 11 player swap, very realistic

24 Jun 2022 12:13:08
Batherson, Brown and the picks would probably be enough for Matthew. But Matthew won't be traded unless they can't resign him long term.

24 Jun 2022 17:01:39
@HockeyDad-Either Batherson or Norris, but Bath makes the most sense

@NotACasual-13 actually! Both the Erik Karlsson and Eric Lindros Trades had 10 pieces in the swap + I've added Valimaki & Vladar who both have good value.

@MoxNix-That's precisely the reason I'm pitching trades for Tkachuk.

24 Jun 2022 20:35:31
I’m saying it makes no sense for Ottawa. I don’t see how exchanging a player who’s on the same timeline and affordable for someone who’s older and more expensive helps them.
Matthew fits Calgarys timeline of competing now and is set to become captain so I can’t see them doing it either.

24 Jun 2022 23:08:48
Batherson + a 1st + Brown + a 2nd + Prospects Kostelic & Sokolov for Tkachuk + Beck seems fair to me. Could swap Kerins for Beck OR have CGY add another Mid-Pick/ Prospect OR remove Beck and Sokolov all together. OR how about taking Monahan 25-50% retained instead. Move Stutzle to LW and White or Boucher to RW.

UFA’s Holden + Watson for RFA Valimaki seems pretty good for OTT. Vladar for Gustavsson is completely optional.

Don’t want to give up Bath or Norris? How about Jake Sanderson or Tim Stutzle then. We definitely need a Top Player or Prospect in exchange for our Top-10 Scoring SuperStar. Unfortunately Boucher and Bernard-Docker don’t really excite me.

Is there no value or interest in OTT uniting the Tkachuk Brothers and making their Top Players and Fans Happy!?

24 Jun 2022 23:40:00
Remember when Eric Lindros was Traded for the equivalent of SIX 1st Round Picks + a 2nd Round Pick + a Good Starting Goalie (Hextall) + $15 million in Cash!?! It Happened!

25 Jun 2022 01:40:41
@TrevorA I could see the Sens offer sheeting Matthew, this off-season, but I don’t think there’s any way they play together until at least Brady’s contract is up.

25 Jun 2022 01:50:35
All the more reason to Trade him before the offer sheet opportunity arises, but it will likely cost FOUR 1st Round Picks, which give or take, is equivalent to my proposal.

Why would Brady’s contract matter or have anything to do with them playing together!?

25 Jun 2022 13:00:48
Because Matthew and Brady likely won’t be traded. Hence they won’t play together till their contracts are up (likely in St Louis) .

25 Jun 2022 15:53:26
" I don’t see how exchanging a player who’s on the same timeline and affordable for someone who’s older"

Matthew is only 4 months older and has been far more productive.

25 Jun 2022 20:09:06
Interesting prediction, but I see absolutely no Terms or Restrictions attached to either Brady or Matthew's current contracts that would prevent them from being Traded, so it's not really up to them unfortunately. Tkachuk >>>> than Batherson right now, but you're right, CGY likes him and definitely his contract/ cap hit.

26 Jun 2022 17:44:35
Moxnix- Batherson is just starting to play like an all-star and has 5 years left at 5M AAV.
Tkachuk will command 9-10M AAV and has no chemistry with the rest of the team.
Id love to have him but I doubt we could get 1 for 1 and it would cause cap problems down the road as we try to sign Norris and Stu.

26 Jun 2022 18:26:18
No Chemistry with his Brother!? 1 for 1!? Tkachuk is a SuperStar whereas Batherson hasn’t played an entire 82 game season yet. Bath’s been impressive and has great potential, but Tkachuk is a sure thing.
