Tb/bos/chi three way

Pretty basic breakdown.

To Chi: Thomas

To TB: Crawford

To Bos: 2nd from both TB and Chicago.

Chicago gets an upgrade in net and moves Crawford like their fans say must be moved if a goalie is brought in.

TB gets an upgrade in net who is young and on a cheaper contract.

Boston moves Thomas for 2 picks to add to their prospect pool and clear some cap space.

So far fans from Boston and Chicago say yes, but I have to think that Tamp would need to add a prsopect or something. just not sure who it would go to.

Yeah, no thanks. Next to zero interest in Crawford.

I'd rather cut out Chicago and move 2 seconds to Boston for Thomas.

does Tampa think that Crawford can be their #1? That's what this deal hinges on.

Pretty low risk trade from Tampa's perspective. I'd probably do it.

I feel like Chicago is getting somewhat of a bad deal though, has Crawford really been that bad?

Their paying a second for an upgrade in net. Crawford is good but Thomas is better.

Some TB fans seemed to not have interest in Thomas or didn't want to give up 2 2nd round picks for him. I thought this could be a meeting in the middle from what I've read in the Thomas to chicago and Thomas to TB threads.

Not worth trading Thomas for a couple of 2nd rounders.

He was good in the playoffs.

I'd do it if I was SY, no matter how bad Chicago fans think Crawford is he can't be any worse than Roli was last year. It'll only cost one 2nd which is cheaper than any other goalie seems to be, and he's 10 years younger than TT.

I agree. If this was a real proposal laid out, I would jump on it in a heart beat. Props for only having to give up a second too.

I'd be more interested in trading any 2 of the Lightnings 2nd round picks for Thomas directly than trading a single 2nd round pick for Crawford.

Unfortunately that's probably his value at this point. He's too old to have much value.

Why? TT might be good now but he has 2-3 years left, he also gets to play behind the best D in the league so who knows how he'll fair behind a weak D. Crawford can potentially be our goalie for the next 10 years. Giving up 1 2nd is also better than 2, I'm just not a very big fan of TT so I'd prefer someone else.

The first sort-of three way trade that makes sense. Well done, OP.

Seriously, why settle for Crawford when you can get TT for a pair of seconds. That's not a high price to pay for a starter.

TT has 2 Vezinas and just won a Cup, how many more years is he going to play? IMO, at this point, TT is basically just a rental goalie for a team making a cup run. Tampa isn't in a win now mode, so giving up one 2nd for a goalie who could turn into a starter for the next 8-10yrs is a better option that two 2nds for a guy who will play 1 or 2 great years and then retire.

I really like TT, I think he's great. From my perspective though, he is a better fit for a team that needs to make a cup run now(San Jose?) or a team that has a very good young goalie prospect that needs 1 or 2 more years splitting time with a veteran(Florida?).

Edit: 1 2nd for Crawford and 2 2nds for TT are both good trades for Tampa IMO. I'm just saying that I prefer what the OP originally suggested (trade for Crawford).

i think Tampa would just offer 3 2nds for him

Tampa is only a good goalie away from a cup run

Not true, top4 defensemen are just as big of a need (it's doubtful Ohlund will play next yr). Thanks for the compliment though

If TB can get that dman in the off season I wonder if that changes things.
