This is for you teams in a rebuild/coming out of your rebuild who have a hole you would love to see filled from a young up and coming player that would fit perfectly on to your roster, regardless of how off limits their management may have them (Mcdavid etc).

I, a leaf fan, would aggressively pursue Sam Reinhart from Buffalo, in my eyes he has the potential to be this generations Bergeron and that is an incredibly useful player to have on a team making a push for the cup in ~5 years.

Who is the perfect young guy your team is missing, and what would you give up to get them?!

Connor McDavid on the Sharks.
Sharks need a 1C for the future. Couture and Pavelski are not 1Cs.

What I would give: anything, even one of my kidneys.

Id rather this question asking just what up and coming prospect... not a young player already in NHL... like just a prospect that hasn't played an NHL game yet.

Maybe that would have been more fitting for this board, and that is initially what I wrote down to ask. I realized a lot of people would likely respond with the latter anyways so just combined the two for the purposes of discussion. One aspect that might bring the conversation together between those two options, is the idea of trading other young out of NHL prospects for young players who may already be playing in it. Youngs guns for young guns... the juiciest of trades that never actually happen - for good reason, you don't know what you've got till its gone... It is fun to be a dreamer though.

DeAngelo.

The Oilers badly need a PP Dynamo who can chip in offensively.

McDavid is the easy choice. For players who haven't played in the NHL yet Lawson Crouse for need/fit but Mitch Marner for who has the best upside.

For an up and coming guy, I would want Sam Morin if he were to reach his absolute sky high potential. I don't think that's likely, but man what a rough night you'd be having getting matchups against him.

Another would be Pavel Buchnevich. Guy is a skilled beast and I can't wait to watch him regularly.

William Nylander would be dynamite to have on my team as well. Big fan of him.

Lawson Crouse as well but the Panthers already have him

Crouse is my answer, he'd be perfect for the Avs.

Zacha, Puljujarvi, Laine wouldn't be bad. I love Virtanen but he doesn't count I guess.

Interesting choice on Morin, I've never thought much of him. Would much rather have Sanheim or Provorov over him from the Flyers prospects.

**** I would love to have Provorov. I can see him being a top 5 D man in the league one day and honestly saw him as the top guy in 2015.

I think thats a bit of a stretch over McDavid and Eichel... but I guess we're all entitled to our own opinions (that is unless you mean top d)

Obviously McDavid. But if the criteria is "hasn't played NHL game" I'd take Mitch Marner.

What is your thoughts on Sergachyov this year? He is the one player not going top 5 and maybe not even top 10 who could be the absolute steal of the 1st round for what ever mid range team gets him.

Sergachyov would be a steal if he fell out of the top 10 for some reason.

Ekblad or Jones for the Islanders. Klingberg if he fits the age criteria

Yeah I see him going no later than 7th - and that is a ****ing steal of a player for 7th overall - similar to Provarov last year. He is going to be in discussion for 5th-10th fighting the big two from the Q and Nylander/Mcleod.

Obviously setting aside McDavid or Eichel, my top target would be Nikolaj Ehlers. A first line of Ehlers-Giroux-Voracek? Damn.

As for what I'd give up, I have no idea what deal I'd be willing to make, but it probably wouldn't be enough to convince Winnipeg, so we're talking pipe dream here.

Yeah obviously haha I'm just speaking more a a player I'd love to have. Obviously I'd choose Mcdavid but I wanted to answer more based on the non obvious choice haha.

Haven't seen much of him (which is bad considering I'm from Windsor) I'm a big fan of Juolevi though.

Puljujarvi or Darnell Nurse if we're talking about players that are already drafted. That kid is going to be an absolute beast in a few years
