An idea i've been playing with in my head has been potentially moving our first along with a roster player for a goaltender and defenseman (if available, looking at you, LA) and then taking the DET first, and one of our seconds to try to move up towards the 14-15 range and take Olli Maatta, who I think will end up being a fantastic defenseman. This could potentially happen with the sharks, who we could hand a second back to.
At that point we could potentially have a goaltender and a roster defenseman while opening a spot for Conacher, Killorn and would still give us a very, very solid defender in Maatta, while having two second rounders.
I don't even know where to start with this awful proposal. 1st you want to trade a top 10 pick + a top 6 foward for Bernier + Voynov? In 3 years this could be a decent proposal but Bernier hasn't proved he's worth even a 2nd rounder like what Bishop cost. Voynov is probably untouchable since the kings traded Johnson just so he can get minutes. Martinez/Greene aren't an upgrade and would be a massive overpayment by us. 2nd you want to trade another 1st plus a 2nd to take a D who could fall to us or we could just keep our picks and get 2 who probably can be better. 3rd Conacher and Killorn aren't NHL ready, both will be in the AHL getting more seasoning, no need to have them in the NHL just to get 4th line minutes.
