Hjalmarsson to Tampa Bay

A source has already confirmed that the Lightning along with other teams were interested at the draft in Hjalmarsson.

To TB:
Hjalmarsson

To Chi:
Purcell

Chicago gets 65 pointer and saves cap space. The Lightning get a much needed defender who has a successful history with Hedman.

Looks fair to me but maybe somebody needs to add.

Chi would have to add, Purcell is a top line winger and Hammer is 2nd pair D.

I'd do it. I wouldn't be happy with giving up Purcell but we kind of fell into some offensive depth that makes giving him up sting a but less.

Doesn't work for either side

Hawks are set at RW and Lightning wont move someone who is important piece to there offense

At this point with draft gone I am not sure anything can be worked out between the two.

Honestly at this time I expect Hawks to see about Suter/Allen at UFA and move Hammer if they get one of those two to come (Or if someone like Meszaros , etc becomes available via trade that Hawks target)

If a deal were to be worked out with Lightning likely would involve 2013 picks as the Lightning's roster talent is not a match for Hawks needs and there prospect pool ins't very good

Moving Purcell would hurt the Lightning alot I would think

Wasn't he your 3rd best offensive player

Id rather keep Purcell and solve our D problems with free agency, I like Hammer a lot he would be nice next to Hedman but not at the cost of Purcell. I'd rather keep him and leave our young forwards in the AHL for another year instead of bringing them up this year.

Depends what you want, we have a lot of forward/goalie prospects. Defense, agreed not very good. But this is the best Tampa's prospect pool has ever been overall (obviously bar Stamkos/Lecavalier) but they were one offs in a pool of crap.

Deal Does not seem fair for Chicago. A bottom pairing dman and Kucherov who very well may never come over. 2nd has value but it's not enough.

Deal does nothing for Hawks as your fellow Lightning fan points out

I like Kucherov but very real possiblity he never comes over

I think there's a deal here as I see it highly likely that TB goes hard for hammer, just hard to see what TB can offer Chicago.

Perhaps something around one of our center prospects?

Yzerman won't give up his first, it'll have to be prospects or roster players.

If you need centers, we can't help. Namestikov is the closest realistic thing that we have and he is at least a year away from contributing on the top 6.

I tried something virtually identical, only with Methot a month ago and got told the same about Purcell - he's kind of necessary for them. I don't expect much has changed since.

Honestly you'd have to add Stamkos for the Hawks to even consider. But seriously, the Hawks need a center. No two ways about it, and I'm pretty sure the Lightning aren't gonna trade Stamkos or Lecavalier. But just for fun:


D Nicklas Hjalmarsson
F Brandon Pirri
2013 1st round pick


F Vincent Lecavalier

Not really a great trade proposal. But what can you do?

Purcell for Niklas is too much for Lightning. 60-70 points top6 forward for defensive defenseman? He is not Yandle guys.

^ Hawks need a center for now, not another prospect that will help 3-4 years down the road.
