Good Trading Partners?

I don't understand this term at all. Can anyone explain what determines who makes these "Good Trading Partners". I'm just a little confused because I've seen perfectly good proposals (I know, I didn't think they existed either )shot down because the teams aren't "Good Trading Partners" Any clarification is appreciated.


Thanks!

teams generally wont make a trade within their division so the other teams are regarded as bad trading partners, good ones are teams (usually in another conference) that won't play each other much and aren't rivals

Ottawa-Edmonton are good trading partners right now because they both suck this year and need a shakeup. That's one part about good trading partners i guess.

Thanks!

YOU HAVE PARTS AVAILABLE TO BE TRADED THAT ANOTHER TEAM IS LOOKING FOR AND THEY HAVE PARTS AVAILABLE THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

For example Toronto has extra defenceman and are looking to rebuild. They would make good trade partners with a young team trying to make the playoffs and need maybe a puck moving defenceman and have young players or picks they are willing to give up.

Ive seen you make many valid points on here so I can only think this was sarcasim on your part?

Dallas would make a good trading partner with a team that has quality young/defensively responsible/physical d-men to spare and needs forward depth (and possibly some defensive depthy-depth)

Ottawa/Pittsburgh: tough, gritty, two-way forwards for defencemen and/or draft picks

A team that has an excess of say, puckmoving defensemen and could use a top 6 forward, would make a good trading partner with a team with an excess of top 6 forwards that could use a puckmoving defenseman.

how about CBJ and NYR

both have what the other needs....


CLB needs #1 pivot and Righty blueliner

NYR has both in surplus...but needs to dump salary....maybe if a 3rd team gets involved we see a 3 team deal....

It doesn't look like Weight to CBJ is going to happen unless he's 100% healthy at the time of trade..so NYR is option 3 for the moment
*option 2 being Comrie*

I'd say those teams which have plenty of trading history together are good trading partners.

Thanks!
Team who aren't rivals, helps out both teams (about equally), on somewhat good terms with one another, and I guess you can add that they consistently make trades (more than with other teams).

Good trading partners to me means the teams aren't rivals/ on bad terms. Both teams have something they each covet AND have the cap space to make such a trade. The trade will fill a need for each team. That's my .02 .
