2020-21 Trade Rumors and Speculation

Recommended Posts

I would appreciate some opinions on Elias Lindholm as a player. And also some opinions on what would it take for a fair valued trade. Would a Risto or Montour plus Mitts and maybe a second round pick thrown in be a reasonable deal?

More I think.  He probably has more value than Monahan

Wow. Is it because he is a better two way player? Would a Risto or Montour and Reinhart plus a second round pick be a reasonable deal for each team?

Is he anything more than a marginal upgrade on Sam?

Trading one top 6 player and our precious trading assets for a broadly comparable one doesnt help our lack of depth in the top 6. Or our lack of 2C (Lindholm is C/RW like Sam)

Better 2-way player, more versatile, better contract, great contract actually.  Over the past 2 years, he has equaled Monahans production and led the Flames forwards in ice time.

I agree about wanting to add if at all possible by trading from anywhere other than our very thin pool of top 6 players. From what I know though Lindholm has actually played C more recently? He seems to be spoken of as a centre option fairly often, but I could be wrong.

How could the laffs afford him with their cap situation?

Hint - It's not actually hard for capable franchises to navigate the cap

They would need to trade out salary, but that’s doable.  They aren’t hampered by excessive NTC’s, like TB for example.

Wow. A player on a top team says that if he leaves his current team, he wants to go with another top team?

This is a juicy rumor for sure.

Pie isn't going anywhere. Jarvis has started moving salary out to re-sign him already.

I bet Cernak from TB could be had with an offer sheet though.

I’d first offer 8 for Cirelli

How--wait.

How ?

I can't do this.  Hang on a second.

How did this reasonable trade proposal that didn't involve like Tage Thompson for Cirelli straight up COME FROM YOU?

I did it.

Can I unwind you?

Someone please unbind Chewbacca.  I hope we don't need to send a droid to some remote planet for this.  @DarthEbriate, can you help?

This is as Star Wars as I can get.  I'm almost sick already.

Too much and the compensation is more.

Tell you what though, you offer 8 for Cirelli and I'll offer Cernak something like 3 x 3.25m.

You really think Cirelli is worth 8m per season?

Ya, at least 12 mil, honestly

No, I definitely mis-read that

When someone types "8" I immediately think 8th pick overall since it's a Sabres staple, every year. My bad. 

Are you interested in our 8th overall from next season Ducky or the season after? What would you be willing to part with for two 8 overall picks?

That's how I had read it.

What? Twelve for two years? Actually I think 7.5 .- 8.5 for seven years.

Vegas is a really interesting option for Pietro.  They could very realistically make it work by moving Fleury and Stastny.

And again, I think Stastny would be an excellent option for a cheap stopgap 2C.
