Phoenix is then downgrading from Summers to Voynov.

Also giving Vrbata (almost as good as Carter himself) up along with a 1st rounder for a bunch of mid grade/low end prospects who will never get above 80 OVR, which also relieves Chicago of cap space.

And Hejdik will probably retire.

Fuss man, I didn't say anything about the RNH one, but if you were on the other side of this one I think you'd prob be thinking about denying it.
Edit: @Evolution i also seem to remember you trading a depth forward, low-mid 80's goalie, and a scrub Dman for Franchise defenseman

Added Tuevo (my favorite prospect) who is a 3.5 star stud as a sweetener

Carter's faceoff rating is a 78. He was the 2nd best Faceoff guy in our league in season 1 and he did a great job winning draws for me this season and in the playoffs.
Trade 1:

-Carter can win draws, Vrbata cant
-Carter has a better shot than Vrbata
-Carter is 3 years younger than Vrbata
-Carter is also locked up to a $5.25/year cap hit for 10 years. At an 86 overall in this game thats a steal. Lucic asked for 6 mil, Marchand 6 mil, Kane (87 ovr) will ask for 8 mil
-Carter is 6'3 and crushes people, also very hard to knock off the puck while Vrbata cant hit to save his life
-I offered Hjalmarsson instead of Voynov but Voynov has better skating so PHX wanted him instead. He's 4.0 Star potential with a lot of room to improve
-I wanted Yandle because of his skating and offense. Defensively, he's not very good. His poke check and positioning make him a defensive liability whereas Voynov had the best +/- for me in the playoffs this year and was a rock

Trade 2: These are two separate trades, not one large trade

Summers is an 83 overall, lets not pretend i traded for Suter or Doughty here

-Gave up the two best picks i have remaining, a 3.5 star goalie prospect, a depth forward (who does not retire this season btw), and a guy who can skate and has 98 Wrist shot power. He can be just as effective as Mursak.
