2020-21 Trade Rumors and Speculation

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.

Fleury and Stastny aren't an appealing package to me, but if you added Tuch and they took Hutton...not sure what we'd have to add.

Fleury, Stastny and Tuch for Hutton and Pietrangelo would have to have some interest to Vegas given the huge cap clear, but I'm sure they'd want a young forward in there too.

Gotta love the media being the shills for players or organizations..

who's angle is he working here.. Pietrangelo, Blues, Leafs or Knights?  Guaranteed he's floating that for someone's benefit to circumnavigate NHL policies.

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.

11 the Hutt: At last we have the mighty @thewookie1's trade request for Cirelli.
Threepio: The illustrious @Eleven bids you welcome and will gladly pay you the reward of Cirelli and a 2021 lottery-protected 1st... for 8th overall, Cozens, Joker, and a conditional 3rd/4th.
Wookie1: I will give you 8th overall. No more.
<11 the Hutt goes into a rage>
Threepio: What did I say? The mighty Eleven asks why he must trade you Cirelli.
Wookie1 holds up a cap hit list.
Threepio: Because he’s holding a Salary Cap Detonator!
11 the Hutt: Whoa-ho-ho! Ah-ha-ha! This proposal is my kind of scum.

I generally trust Pierre's information, but of all the "Insiders" he is the one who most obviously trades favours.

Nik Hjalmarsson, 33, LD, one year left at $5 million. Coyotes prepared to dump anyone over 25.

Interest? How much?

Yeah, you can't do both. 

Personally, I don't have much interest in Fleury.  36 years old, coming off an underwhelming season by the numbers, at a huge cap hit.  Internal cap aside, having a spare 7.5 million on our books next year hurts a whole lot more than an extra 6.5 this year.  He'd make a good 1B, but he's way too expensive.  There will be better options available for cheaper.

Stastny and Tuch is the ideal off-season trade package for me.  2C to cover for a year with the expectation of Cozens taking that role from there, and a long-term top 6 RW that has the truculence this team lacks.  I know that's a cliche Brian Burke term, but it's true on this roster.

Vegas objectively does not need to trade Tuch.  That changes, however, if they bring in Pietrangelo.

A tiny bit depending on price and if there’s any retention.

Is Tuch really truculent?  Is he actually a physical, gritty, grinding, intimidating player?  Or is he just tall?

Honest question.  I don’t see Vegas play much, past my bedtime.

He delivers about 1 hit per game, but so does Tage Thompson, and his PIMs don’t paint the picture of an intimidating player.  Guess how many he had this season........8.  Guess how many last season.........8 again.  Leaves me skeptical.

He's earned a little bit of a reputation in these playoffs.  There was a slew-foot in one of the Dallas games (no suspension) and I think there was some stuff in one of the earlier series, too.

He ain't a fighter and isn't going to run all over the ice hitting everything that moves, but he's strong in the corners and not afraid to throw his weight around.

No need to take a Stastny cap dump now, Staal fits that bill perfectly. 😁

I think they all do at some point.  They have to in order to get other inside information later. Do a favor here, get a favor there... sorry favour. 🙂

And with the addition of the Eric of Staals, all trades and rumors pertaining to said were hereby banished from the Space of the Sabres. 

Now let's all enjoy a nice, cool glass of turnip juice.

Why?  The '19-'20 season that refused to end still has 2-3 more weeks to it.

LOL, I posted my comment in the wrong thread.  I meant to place it in the Adams doing nothing thread.

Didn't Staal play with UFA Mikael Granlund in Minny with they average 70 points apiece between the two of them?

Player I would look into, if the coyotes are dumping Hjalmarsson.

How about Montour + mittelstadt for Hjalmarsson + connor garland.

Freddie Andersen from Toronto has a 1mil salary for next season. Would improve the GT.

Good call.

Friedman on WGR this morning said the Sabres are looking for a goalie — ideally in a similar trade like Staal, where we can improve the team and save money.

That fits. Leafs need RHD. Montour?

You might be able to toss them a 2nd round pick next year, they want to clear cap but I never have a good understanding of the goalie market. Prices may vary.

I read that in an article on the Athletic but capfriendly doesn't list Andersen's salary as only being 1mil. Interesting. 

Oh I see... Anderson's salary and cap is 5mil but he had a 4million dollar bonus that has already been paid so it costs 5mil in cap but you only owe him 1mil left in real money. 

 

Wonder if you could do Carter Hutton and a pick for Andersen as that clears roughly 2.5 mil in cap for Toronto.

No interest in helping Toronto in any way. Especially if it gave them a better shot at Pieterangelo

They'd need to do a whole lot more than move Andersen to clear the space for Pietrangelo.

Truthfully, the only way Pietrangelo makes sense for Toronto is if they move Marner or Nylander without getting any salary back.  And even then, it doesn't help their topheavyness problem.
