The only problem with attempting to filch good players off of teams with cap troubles is that almost every one of them can solve their cap issues with buyouts. It isn't NYI or CLB that are having troubles, it's the big market teams. Hopefully it does lead to some players hitting Free Agency or becoming available for trade who otherwise wouldn't.
I don't think there's anything out of Nashville that DD would return as to make it worth it. All of their assets are too expensive or just not worth it. I think Calgary (whether or not for Cammalleri
) would be a better option. Who knows, maybe even to Chicago for prospects.
Gionta and a 3rd for Matteau may work. NJ needs some forwards for next season. Phoenix and Columbus may be better options for DD as they have space and could use a center. May have to include Pateryn to get something of value back.
