Id like to get a sure fire player. Someone that I know will count here in NY. Not a gamble. Not someone that is decent but not great all round nor really fill a need for us (say a Tatar, if a player with Tatar's skill was a RD I would be interested however).
To start with, you also gotta find a team that you can let Cally talk to so that the can agree on a deal before a trade is made so that you don't deal a rental.
So you know, Id definitely deal
. But what does that take? THat EDM is desperate to jump start their game AND that EDM can talk with Cally and G and convince them to resign in EDM. What are the odds for that?
When Dallas traded
, he was already a established 30 goal scorer. A PF. That is a good piece to get.
is a good piece to get when Philly got him from LA. More or less a sure thing while the upside was / is a bit in question.
was a good pickup.
from ANA is a player I would take, probably the only one that isn't completely unrealistic of the player mentioned so far...
Its not easy to get for a rental though. OTOH, our rentals aren't 35 y/o. They are 28 and 29 y/o, and any team getting them can just find out the asking price and resign them instantly. As can we.
I also definitely wouldn't be opposed to trading them for established players. Like getting say a
to use as RD.
We aren't getting Burns unless we give up McD.
But we should really pester Winnipeg for Byfuglien who has evolved into a really good player who is definitely undervalued at the moment. He also happens to fit everything we lack in a defenceman AND he has a very good contract.
