Also, if you went to Tampa's board and offered Risto/Borgen/Mitts for Cirelli/Cernak/Foote, they'd laugh you out the door. They'd pay$100 of their own money to keep Risto off their team 

Just like I told y'all with Point last year, Cirelli is going to be a special hockey player. 

The only way you get special hockey players is drafting top 3, getting lucky after that, or identifying guys before they break out, not after

I may be wrong, but Anthony is my pick this offseason to develop into a special player at some point soon

 

The 7th pick was also involved. Also, it’s been widely reported that Tampa wants Risto so you’re off there.

”The only way you get special players is by drafting top 3” in a post about Brayden Point and Anthony Cirelli who weren’t even close to being top 3 picks.

Good morning, Flagg. 😛

lmao did you miss the next part "getting lucky after that"

referring to late round picks that develop into special players 

And I'm not off, I didn't say tampa doesn't want risto, i said that you'd get laughed off of their forum because their fans don't want him

Trust me, I've already had these conversations with them 

Good morning to me, it sounds like you are the one that needs to reread!!

People here told me the same thing when I suggested Risto and Reinhart for Aho and Slavin a few years ago, so I'll take that as a compliment.

I would love to add Cirelli. But I’m not just going to throw every asset we have for him when it’s either not necessary or he’s untouchable. If Cirelli is truly attainable it won’t take all the assets I mentioned to get him.

I am not saying acquire Vesey, but I do think Mitts and Eichel are better then what he had in NY.  

Donskoi and Ferlund are good 3rd line players and basically only slight, if at all, improvements over Sheary, Vesey or KO.  They really don’t move the needle, but like Vesey just give us more depth.

Besides Olofsson, who would Vesey be blocking? Thompson? Nylander?  What have they proven?

@nfreeman Olofsson had 4 pts in 6 NHL games after putting up 63 in 66 AHL games, including 30 goals.  I think he’s proven he’s ready to be in the NHL.

Cernak and Foote are their two top-rated defensive prospects too, though. They aren't filler. They're f*cking good and would easily be our top two non-Dahlin defense prospects, and at least one is sure to be a top four fixture for years. Again, Cernak already has a successful NHL season in the books, helping McDonagh to the best season of his career in tough minutes.

He'd be the perfect Dahlin partner - he's nasty, stay-at-home, and allows his partner to roam. He is an excellent shot suppressor in his own right. We'd be a MUCH better team this year with this trade, and would have a great chance of winning it in the long run, which is why Tampa would say no if it was proposed.

Thing about Jbott is, he keeps things tight, nothing might happen but he always surprises us at least once every deadline.

Any Risto to Tampa trade is going to have Foote being one of the primary returns.  Tampa is in win-now mode and just needs cap relief and replacement RD with grit — they aren’t going to trade their NHL proven cost controlled assets to pick up Risto. They might be willing to trade away defenders they can’t wait two years on to make sure they can repeat their Presidents trophy next two years, and this time have enough grit in the lineup to play playoff hockey.

By the way, I did read that 7 was in your trade @Hoss, and forgot about it. So I'd ask Tampa for another piece. But I'd still do it!

And please just ignore me because crafting outlandish trades is my favorite hockey thing to do. Last summer I made a bunch of Dahlin trade proposals just for fun

I was wondering if these charts made it to this forum. 

More importantly, does JBot know what they say about Vesey?

I'm a pass on Vesey

exactly.

Do the same for Ferlund, I would be curious to see the difference.

We need to send them a salary dump back like Scandella or Sobotka

According to HFBoards, Dreger said:

Sabres really interested in Vesey

Nylander could be moved

31 is apparently set to be traded.

Not sure why there is so much Vesey love from JBot.

According to Chad Dominicis: McCabe+ for Vesey will be announced today.

+ Sobotka, Sheary, or Okposo is what it would take for me to not be disappointed in the trade. 

 

McCabe is a bit of a potato brain though with those head and repeat shoulder injuries, so losing him may not really affect the long term.
