Winnipeg looking for "scoring RW" - Cheveldayoff (please read OP)
As per interview on tsn1290. Top 6 only please - most likely 2nd liner. Youth, rfa, ufa, rental doesn't matter. Make a reasonable offer. Lots of picks available, not many prospects. Have a bit of a logjam at D.
Chevy also prefers size. I don't think he'd be looking for a small winger. Someone that can chase after the puck, we play a lot of dump and chase. "Scoring" means someone that isn't afraid to shoot, not an elite sniper. We already have a RWer in Wheeler that is almost a pure setup guy.
To be crystal clear:
2nd line RW that shoots first and needs a change of scenery or is in a slump.
Probable pieces offered:
- Burmistrov C 21 1.5 cap hit expires into RFA 2013
- Hainsey LHD 31 4.5 cap hit expires into UFA 2013
- Postma RHD 24 550k cap hit expires into RFA 2013
- Stuart LHD 28 1.7 cap hit expires into UFA 2014
- Antropov C 33 4.0 cap hit expires into UFA 2013
- Thorburn 4th line RW 29 866k cap hit expires into UFA 2014
Burmi is a defense first C that's good on the 2nd or 3rd line, and fantastic on the PK. Hainsey is a shut down LHD. Postma is a young offensive RHD who is redundant in our system. Stuart is a physical LHD. Antropov is a rather slow C that is good along the boards, has decent passing and play making. Thorburn is a 4th line grinder with little offensive ability, and will stick up for team mates.
We have all of our draft picks except for 2013's 7th round. We have Chicagos 2nd and 3rd in 2013, as well as NJD's 7th. We also have pick #59 2013 for not signing Dalton Leveille. Also have NJD's 4th in 2014.
Just to be clear we are looking for value. We are not looking for Perry, Iginla, Kessel, Pominville, Stewart, Gaborik, Eriksson although I'm positive these players are right at the top of Chevys christmas list. We're looking for a guy that needs a change of scenery, or is going through a drought. We are not looking to trade core pieces, or get core pieces in return, because of the asking price for those pieces.
Pavelec, Trouba, Scheifele, Bogosian, Enstrom, Byfuglien, Wheeler, Ladd, Little, Kane, Slater, Redmond, Kulda are all probably out of the question.
Gaborik, top Prospect Skjei, Emminger/Gilroy (D) for Bogosian, Burm, 1st/2nd
You included Skjei and Eminger/Gilroy as if a potential future 2nd pairing d-man and an awful #7 guy would be enticing pieces when Winnipeg is giving up a young #2 d-man, a young #2 center and a good/great pick.
