Major Shakeup Trade

So even though the rumours around Tyutin being shopped have been squashed (for now), here's a proposal for a big deal that would provide a much-needed major shake up to the BJ's.

(Full-disclosure... I'm not a Jackets fan, so I may be off here.
If that's the case, try to counter/make improvements instead of just flaming hard!)

To CLB:
Franson
Komisarek
Gustavsson
Lombardi
Zigomanis
4th Rounder
5th Rounder

To TOR:
Tyutin
Pahlsson
Huselius
Sanford


Essentially the Jackets give up a 3-4 Dman, a 33 year old bottom 6 pending UFA, another 33 year old pending UFA who is injured long-term, and a 32 year old pending UFA career backup/minor leaguer.

They get a big, young 4-6 D with offensive potential, another solid 4-6 D, a 1b/2 Goalie, a top 9 LW/C with speed, a faceoff and pk specialist 4th line C, and 2 picks.
More importantly, they shakeup their roster which hopefully sends a shock through the players that remain, and bring in some great locker room presence.

The Leafs (who look like they might actually be able to make some noise this year) get a veteran defensive 3rd line C (who has history with Burke), a good D to play in the bottom 4, and a depth keeper who can backup Scrivens until Reimer returns, and then either backup Reimer or be sent to the Marlies (if Scrivens stays up).
The Leafs can eat Huselius contract on LTIR. If he comes back and plays well, he'll boost their playoff run. If not, he can rehab/be buried in the minors.


......

Tyutin - Good 3-4 D, but is set to start earning alot more $ next season and is locked in at that cap hit for a long time.

Pahlsson - Solid defensive 3rd line C, but a 33 year old pending UFA. CLB has depth at C once Carter returns (Carter, Vermette, Brassard, Letestu, MacKenzie, Bass etc)

Sanford - 32 year old career backup/minor leaguer. Pending UFA

Huselius - included strictly for financial reasons. I hear he won't be back until Dec or Jan (CLB season will be long gone by then if they keep this up!). He's also 33 years old, so who knows how well he'll bounce back, and he's a UFA at season's end.

for

Franson - Big young D with offensive potential on a cheap contract. A return to the Central Div. and a chance to play regularly could really help him flourish.

Komisarek - Despite what all the haters would have you believe, he's off to a pretty good start this year. He's +5 playing 18-20 min a night.
He's also a great leader and locker room presence - something CLB could surely use right now.
His cap hit is the same as what Tyutin's jumps to next season, but his actual salary drops off, and there's only two years left on his contract (as opposed to Tyutin's 6!)

Gustavsson - Still has potential to be a good 1b goalie. His skills are amazing, but his head is not where it needs to be. A change of scenary could do him well. (As amazing a goalie coach Allaire is, his style has never seemed to go well with the Monster's skillset). Adding some legitimate competition for the net could also help push Mason to rediscover his form. (The kid's only 23 after all!)

Lombardi - Versatile player who can slot in pretty much anywhere in the top 9 when needed. He's extremely fast, plays a two-way game (including pk), and will put up 40-60 points if given the chance.

Zigomanis - I really feel he deserves a shot in the NHL. He is a point-per-game player in the AHL right now, but is a great fit as 4th line C in the NHL.
He is great at face-offs, a good PK-er, will work his a-$ off blocking shots etc, and is a great locker room presence.

4th Round Pick

5th Round Pick


I realize deals this size rarely occur during the season, but The Jackets really need to make changes - even just to shake things up and change the mentality of the team, and if any other GM in the league is going to make a big trade mid-year, it's Burke!

No thanks, and this doesn't really shake anything up at all. No changes are being made to the core rather than dumbly getting rid of our best defender for downgrades.

To offer Columbus, those which are Nashville's sloppy seconds, is comical.

IMO you guys already have a pretty solid core. It's the supporting cast (and goalkeeping) that is holding you back.

Nash, Carter, Umberger, Vermette, Johansen, Wiz, Methot, and Tyutin are a pretty good core to add to.

(I targeted Tyutin based on his name floating around... and yes, I know it was later shot down).

You guys need goaltending, defensive help and quality depth/character players to add to the core.



But hey... I'd gladly take one of those core guys off your hands if you don't want them

Your answer to our goal-tending problem is to trade us a goalie equally as terrible?

With exactly the same flaws.

Even though you said not to flame you, that you don't understand Columbus issues and weaknesses which may cause your proposal to be off the exact team needs and that you politely asked for repliers to offer constructive counter offers/improvements to your proposal I think I will completely ignore that part and belittle you with trite smart ass response to your long and detailed suggestion

The wildcard is Gustavson and him being able to turn his season around which is pretty low probability.

And the trade comes down to replacing offensively inclined Tyutin with an offensive downgrade in Franson and a shutdown specialist Komisarek. The team needs more defence and grit at the blueline so this may not be bad from that perspective though I'm not sure if this more of a step sideways.

Being able to eat Huselis contract may have management more willing to deal even if it is a sideways deal. That is, using his salary on an active player in the line up instantly upgrades the team. I think something around him could happen because management may chose to save salary and try to boost profits especially if the team is not making the playoffs.

I think it is a fair deal overall and tyutin is the best player in the trade which maybe the stumbling point for columbus.

The beauty of all this is that you don't have to sell it to us. No one cares we if like it.
