Dunn for Mittelstadt has gotten some interest from both sides.  My gut tells me we'd have to throw in a small add, but that base could work.

Man, I really wish Boston had re-signed Krug or traded for OEL and made Grzelcyk available.  I'd love to have him at the price he just re-signed for.

What is the bolded based on?

Totally agree on Grzelcyk.

It's the one move I think we need before I can begin contemplating venturing into the murky waters of predicting a playoff berth. 

With the cap questions, and health questions, you should be able to poach Raanta.  I've looked at countless other near 1B options and he is simply the best fit.  Make it happen!

So by both sides you mean fans from each team?  NHL trade rumors 2020.  

Yeah, sorry if I implied otherwise.  Not a real rumor or anything, I just had to stop and think about it because internet fanbases don't usually agree on anything.

Source said talks with Calgary are heating up again- not the same trade, but one that would bring in a top 6 forward, and a goalie.

So who does your source say we are moving to Chicago for a disgruntled Patrick Kane?😜

I saw an article on I believe Fansided(?) That discussed this. I think they suggested it would take Mitts, our 1st on '21, and Montour. They also said CHI might retain some salary.

They said it could work with/without retaining salary.

I have my doubts.

And just because he was squirted out in Buffalo, doesn’t necessarily mean that Kane wants to come back home and play for the Buffalo Sabres. It’s assuming an awful lot that Kane definitely without a doubt without question wants to play here. I’m not saying he doesn’t… But I think it’s dumb to assume he definitely does just because he has family and friends here.

Kane has a 10.5m cap hit, ain’t nobody got time for that. Though Chicago is a team we should take a hard look at for assets.
 

Heard on Instigators today that their organization sent out a letter to season ticket holders that they’re essentially rebuilding.

IF And it’s a big IF Kane even entertained the idea of coming to Buffalo to finish his career... if Chicago retained 30 - 35% of his salary, AND The biggest piece (among other pieces) going back was a first round draft pick in 2021, along with Mitts, then I would consider it. Just… Consider it.

Kane is not the same player he was 3, 4, 5 years ago… And that has to be strongly considered. And excepted. No nostalgia of yesteryear of what once was.

Risto and Okposo would almost equal salary.  Then it just depends on what Chicago would actually want. Reinhart & Mittlestat?  Then fill in the bodies to make salary roster limits work.

You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention..

Want to know what's really dumb...your assuming that I said any of what you referred to. In fact, I said " I have my doubts".

I was piggybacking off of the “I have my doubts” part. I didn’t assume you thought Kane would definitely want to come here or can come here.

I may be alone,  but I wouldn't trade Sam for Kane straight up 

I probably wouldn’t either but dumping Risto and Okposo.  Starting to sound better.

How much longer do you think he can play at the level he’s at now? Hes 31 and had 110 pts in 18-19(his best year) and 84 pts in 70 games in 19-20. He seems like the type that can still put up points as he ages but I haven’t watched him play in a while outside of a couple Sabre games.

Sorry about the backlash. My response about the doubt was meant in a couple of ways...most of which you covered.  All I was doing was responding with what I read.

I also hadn't had my coffee yet. Lol

Chicago is only trading Kane for a rich return -- it would have to be something like Reino, Mitts, Samuelsson and a #1.

Kane turns 32 next month, but is still a very productive player.  He has a $10.5MM cap hit for 3 more seasons, although the actual cash is $7MM per year.

If Reino and Mitts would cost $7.5MM per year in cap hit between them (although I'm not sure what Mitts' cap hit is if he's in Rochester), then it's another $3MM per year in cap hit, and zero in additional cash, to convert Reino to Kane.

Kane, a RW, will almost certainly be substantially better than Reino for at least the 1st 2 of those 3 years.

A top line of Hall-Eichel-Kane would be freaking amazing.

I'm interested.

Though I don’t think it’s really plausible, having Kane would be a game changer. Not only could we make the playoffs I’d even dare to say that we could do something in said playoffs.

Any Kane trade would likely require some retention in this flat cap world. 

Reinhart and our 1st next year for Kane would very likely be at the center of the trade. From there it would be a matter of assets and money being swapped. I’d throw in Mitts and Risto and see if we can get Murphy from them. They would get younger and we would get another star.

Reinhart, Mitts, Risto and our 1st

for 

Kane (3mil retained) and Murphy 

 

It would come down to Bowman’s thoughts on Risto and Mitts.

 

Hall-Eichel-Kane would arguably be the best Top Line in the league. Sounds terrible defensively but offensively goalies would cry in terror
