Tb+nyi+mtl

To TB: Isles 1st, Higgins, Prospect
To NYI: Tampa's 1st, MTL 2nd
To MTL: Vinny


This would only make sense if the Isles decide on hedman

I would think a few minors leagues would be added across the board.

Take it easy on me..lol

Actually, think that is quite a smart deal. But can't see Isles switching picks for Montreal's 2nd. Maybe Montreal's 1st and a Plekanec. Something like that.

There's got to be something missing here. This makes no sense.

Not even close from the Isles stand point.

The only thing the Isles get for giving up the top spot is the Habs 2nd round pick??? No where near enough. even if the Isles want Hedman or Duchene—No one knows who the Isles will pick. Further—if I am Tampa I don't make this trade.

If I am the GM of either the Isles or Bolts—I am over the moon at the way things have shaken out with the lottery.

The Islanders are in desperate need of offensive firepower and a name that can be marketed and sold to boost the franchise. John Tavares is that guy. As GM I take Tavares 10 out of 10 times.

The Bolts have their offensive guy—3 of them in fact. Lacavalier, St. Louis, and of course Stamkos. What they need is a big time defenseman much more then a forward. Hedman makes complete sense for the Lightning at the #2 spot.

I just dont see trades at the top end of the draft. The talant is too good, and of these two players—Tavares & Hedman—they will go to teams that need them. Not only are they the best athlete available at the spot they are being picked—but they also fill major needs for the team picking them. Both teams could not be in a better position. why would they screw that up?

NYI would want more than a 2nd to move down
& TB is paying a lot to move up 1 spot even if they get rfa Higgins

Lets assume to move from 2 to 1 all they would have to give is a prospect, that means for vinny there getting Higgins??

Wow Habs make out like bandits.I can't see the nyi getting excited about Montreal's 2nd even if they decided on Hedman.

Maybe replace Montreal's 2nd with TB's for NY.

The Isles give up the future face of their franchise to get a second round pick?

No.

As the OP said, the deal is contingent on them liking Hedman more than Tavares. However, Montreal certainly needs to be sending more to TB.

For Tampa, it basically boils down to:

Tavares for Hedman, which is slightly in their favor if they like him better.

And...Vinny for Higgins and a prospect, which is

Horrible trade.

Montreal doesn't have their 2nd, btw. They gave it to Calgary, who then gave it to Colorado.

If the Islanders know for a fact that Tampa is taking the guy they rate #2 or lower I would do it, else pass.

If there is some wierd 3 way trade between these teams were Vinny goes to Montreal and Tampa and Islanders switch picks, I think the price would be San Jose's pick going to one of the teams and Montreals #1 coming to the Islanders

Are you sure you are not a closet Canadiens fan??

Tampa gets hosed in this deal, move up 1 spot in the draft and get higgins and a prospect for VINCENT LECAVALIER.

Not enough going to Tampa.

But if Isles would even consider been part of such a deal, it would be because they want Hedman while Tampa is pretty much admitting they want Tavares by trading Lecavalier.

In this very specific situation, getting a 2nd rounder and landing the player they wants is a no-brainer.

From Tampa alone, Isles would ask for more. In such a deal? a 2nd would do. But giving up Lecavalier got to pay more than that for Tampa (unless they dont like Hedman at all)

If there were any chance Tampa would do this, I'd say the Islanders should cut out the middleman and trade the #1, Hunter and a prospect for Vinny and the #2.

Of course, Tampa gets bent in this trade, so it'll never happen.

Even is Okposo or Bailey was the prospect I don't see Tampa doing it.

I think a lot of armchair GM's will be disappointed when the lightning team is dismantled this summer due to financial restrictions. It's almost a certainty that 2 of Vinny, St Louis and Malone will get moved this summer and for a lot less than many people believe.

However i don't think the trade would make sense for Tampa Bay.

Perfect HFBoards trade proposal of the week

User njdevil3027 knows just how to get Vinny Lecavalier to Montreal: by having them give up Chris Higgins and a second-round pick. Seriously.

To TB: Isles 1st, Higgins, Prospect
To NYI: Tampa's 1st, MTL 2nd
To MTL: Vinny
This would only make sense if the Isles decide on hedman
I would think a few minors leagues would be added across the board.
Take it easy on me..lol

You'll be shocked to learn they did not take it easy on him.
