Schenn (Toronto) - They have their own very good, young goalie in James Reimer. They have no need for Bobrovsky whatsoever. None.
Bogosian (Winnipeg) - Pavelec is more established than Reimer/Bobrovsky and he is currently one of the better young goalies in the National League.
OEL/Gormley (Phoenix) - They have a need for Bobrovsky, no doubt. But I find it hard to believe they would panic and move a blue chip (like either of those players) for Bobrovsky. If you are talking about Bernier, Markstrom or Rask, perhaps - but Bobrovsky is not regarded nearly as high as those guys.
And before Ottawa becomes a suggested trading partner for Bobrovsky (because of their flock of young D - Karlsson, Rundblad, Cowen and Wiercioch), please note they have a brilliant, young goalie in their system named Robin Lehner.
I knew Toronto wouldn't work lol I was just kidding about that one and I forgot about Pavelec's breakout year last season. I knew Lehner was coming up for Ottawa so I didn't want to mention them and the rest I meant we could put some kind of package together for them. Maybe we could trade with the Stars for Oleksiak. I know Campbell is coming up for them, but it might be another year or two. Anaheim we could get Sbisa from, just because Hiller has been somewhat injury prone. Any other suggestions from anybody?
