Top 3 is strong but say a team like Calgary or Dallas could get a top line forward and a top defenseman is crazy
No matter what Calgary does, I wouldn't worry. Feaster is a mess and will ruin that team one way or another. The best thing he can do now is trade the #6 and any role player the bruins may be interested in so they can get Seguin. Anything after the #4 is a 50/50 chance of working out in my eyes, might as well grab the sure thing in Seguin seeing as he is available and for a good cap hit for the Flames.
Dallas wouldn't be a bad fit either, but I do not see them pulling the trigger.
I would love if Boston would accept this, or something close to that makes sense.. Oh to dream......
Funny that Lord Fletcher and I posted trades about Granlund/Clutter and a 2nd at the same time.
While Seguin would be great to have, I don't see how we could afford him under the CAP.
I agree that he would be nice to have (impossible without us having a top 15 pick this year, top ten per the rumored must haves to be in the Seguin sweepstakes) ... but I think it is possible to afford him. with dumping Gilbert and maybe Heatley "if" he gets healthy for buyout round 2. All I can say is that if we are able to get Seguin, Fletcher will make the cap workout.... all for nothing dreaming thou, we have no chance.
As for Granlund not being traded. it is possible, do not place him on a no trade list. I think there are only two guys on this team that Fletcher will not trade no matter what and they are Suter and Brodin. Everyone else has a price. #99 did, so lets just leave it at that
