It would need to be massive. I mean, you have bare minimum of Barkov sitting there at 4 who would likely be the number 1 pick in next years draft. What would it take to acquire the number 1 overall pick next year?
I would think multiple first rounders and on ice talent simply due to the top heavy nature of this draft.
It seems to me the only way you trade this pick is if you're close to being a contender; otherwise, you draft your piece, develop him with FF and move along. I suppose if EDM wanted to move one of their kids then maybe, but that's essentially the same thing with a little more experience. Otherwise - think massive overpayment, then double it.
it would take a deal I seriously doubt any GM in his right mind would be willing to give.
The only return that would make sense would be a young, established top line center already signed long term, and I dont see the Hawks giving us Toews, the Isles giving us Tavares, or the Pens giving us Malkin or Crosby, so I dont think I can see a scenario that makes sense for us to trade
Tampa fan coming in peace. Just wondering, would you guys do 3 + for 4 + Josi? Or 3 + 4th round for 4 + Blum. Drouin is the type of creative franchise player you might be looking for. If Mackinnon is there (not likely) even better for you guys. Again just curious, I know how high you guys hold Josi, and I really want to know what the plus would be considering the difference in potential from Drouin/Mackinnon to Barkov/Lindholm/Monahan/Nichuskin
