I'd have been more happy with a bunch of draft picks in return. But, a couple of young guys plus a pick. It is not bad. I fully anticipated Cullen having a good season this year, but if NYR can find a younger and cheaper version on the 3rd line, I am all for that.

This trade can mean bye-bye to Mara. If he had a decent season, he might have more value in next off season since there is less financial obligation.

There were some other posts saying Slat might move Malik while vacationing with Burke. That would shed $5.8 m off the cap and add a bunch of picks. Let's see if we can have 7 or 8 picks in the first 3 rounds.

It is not a bad idea to move Avery to 3rd line. He and Callahan would drive the defence nuts. Of course, keeping Prucha at 3rd is an option.
