Seen some of this kind of stuff circulating on the main trade board
Thought I would put it all together here
These proposals are not far off from what some of the other teams there have been asking for. Both Morrow and Penner seem to be in a bit of a funk so to speak... If we could get them on the cheap - hey why not?
Pretty improbable though...
  • Brendan Morrow (UFA) for Matt Gilroy + Michael Haley + 3rd round pick - Dallas eats half the cap hit ($2.050.000 - $650.000) = NYR take an annual caphit of $1.400.000
  • Dustin Penner (UFA) for Steve Eminger + Jason Wilson + 4th round pick - LA eats half salary + caphit ($1.625.000 - $750.000) = NYR take an annual caphit of $875.000
  • Douglas Murray (UFA) for Mike Rupp + 3rd round pick + rights to Peter Ceresnak NYR take an annual caphit of $1.000.000

NYR would be taking an annual hit here of $3.275.000 in theory if these trades were to go down (none of them most likely will)
98 day season
Say this goes down in about 2 weeks = 21 days of season gone
Prorated annual hit due to these trades would then be $2.573.214 at time of trade(S)
Available annual space now is $3,980,050 (minus Krieder which is NOT included - if he is sent down)
Leaves about $1.406.836 in annual space (prorated this is $5.803.197 at the deadline) to pickup a UFA Defenseman or do whatever then
Plus we have LTIR money Sauer we could utilize if we near the cap
Just saying...

Morrow - Richards - Nash
Pyatt - Stepan - Gaborik
Hagelin - Boyle - Callahan
Penner - Halpern - Asham

Ferriero/Mashinter as a spare

Lots of different line combos & options
Everyone playing their right line btw
Reuniting Richards and Morrow might be a good reinjection of spark for Morrow
A pretty impressive 3rd line IMO
Penner as a 4th liner who can move up when he gets on a hot streak
Murray as a banger who can go with heavyweights and play a steady 13-14 3rd pairing minutes
Bickel as a spare brawler
Still have an Achilles heal on faceoffs though
Kreider sent down to work on pro game a while - hopefully returning this year
Maybe sign Zuccarello as a PP expert around the deadline and bring himover then (believe he has an NHL out clause in his KHL contract)
Zucc and Kreider in as added playoff depth

McD - Girardi
Staal - MDZ
Murray - Stralman


A deadline pickup on D (this has to be UFA) to add more depth would not be a bad thing either
There would - as mentioned above be a bit of cap space there to accommodate this

Would this make up a better team better suited for a long run??
Playoffs - btw???
