Assessing, Analyzing, and Predicting the upcoming deadline

So the idea of this thread is that we can sort of self-generate our own preview of the deadline, and look at it in depth. All the sports show hosts blab and blab only about the big trades they think could happen, but I'd like us to take a more comprehensive look at it.

First of all to do that, we need to assess each team's role in the deadline:

We have our buyers, our sellers, and our traders.

Buyers = teams that are willing to give up some future (draft picks, prospects, young roster players that haven't broken out yet) for short term success. Of course they don't want to trade away their entire future. Buyers are usually locks for the playoffs, but bubble teams with good lineups on paper or with desperate ownership can often be buyers.

Traders = teams that are looking to get into the playoffs and want to win, but aren't hedging their bets on it. They're less likely to trade away their future but they are looking to boost their team in someway. They may act a bit like sellers, trading away a pending UFA, but for a roster player that's signed for awhile or for an RFA that's less established but they are hoping will provide a spark. A prime example of this is Carolina trading Commodore and Stillman to Ottawa in exchange for Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves. Traders are usually on the bubble.

Sellers = teams that want to accumulate draft picks for their pending UFA. Generally they want to keep their youth for a rebuild, but trading youth for youth is not out of the question. Sellers are usually


OK, with those definitions out of the way let's get back to the point:

Pick a team that hasn't been picked yet, and provide a detailed deadline analysis for them, complete each of the following fields:

Team Name
Points as of the day of posting and current standing
Team Role:
Team Strengths
Team Weaknesses
[B]Prospect Strengths[b]
Prospect Weaknesses
Cap Space
2011 draft picks
2012 draft picks
Upcoming UFAs and RFAs
Other assets


So since I'm a Pens fan, I'll take the Penguins:

Team Name
Pittsburgh Penguins
Points as of the day of posting and current standing
68, 4th Eastern Conference
Team Role:
Buyers/Traders
Team Strengths
Very deep at center
Goaltending
Mobile defense with a good top 5.
PK forward depth
lots of grit, speed, and energy at wing
Team Weaknesses
A lack of size and skill on the wing.
Inexperienced 6/7 d-men
[B]Prospect Strengths[b]
Mobile defensemen
Prospect Weaknesses
skilled forwards
Cap Space
96k * 4.5 for approximately 432k + 500k LTIR because Comrie is out for the rest of the season. The Pens are at 23 roster players with everyone except Comrie off of IR, will have to trade a roster player if any moves are made, allowing them to take on at the very least a player with a cap hit of 1.435 at a minimum, if their least paid player was traded.
2011 draft picks1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, SJS 7th
2012 draft picks 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th
Pending UFAs Pascal Dupuis, Max Talbot, Michael Rupp, Eric Godard, Arron Asham, Chris Conner, Mike Comrie(LTIR)
Pending RFAs Tyler Kennedy
Other assets
Goligoski: With 6 NHL defensemen signed through 2013, Goligoski only being signed through 2012, and the depth on defense in their prospect pool, many fans consider Goligoski a longterm luxury as their number 5. He has quite a bit of talent, but hasn't really broke out yet and the Penguins would want a hefty return for him, perhaps a longterm solution at wing. However, trading Goligoski at the deadline would hurt their defensive depth for the 2011 playoff run, for which they have just 5 veteran defensemen on their roster.



Then what?

After we profile each team, a list of realistic targets for each team can be made, and judged based on likeliness.

Thanks Danishh for your participation!

Hale's pretty affordable, I wonder if he'd look decent paired with Goligoski.

I think Ruutu should definitely land the Sens a 3rd round pick from some team that needs grit for the playoffs. I'd love to have Ruutu back on the Pens, but a 6th defenseman and a top 6 winger are more pressing needs.

Well I think it helps that Fleury and the defense are healthy.

2nd fewest GA in the league, #1 PK sure helps.

Thank you, and I actually feel like doing it now, so hehe.

Team Name
New York Rangers

Points as of the day of posting and current standing
62, 7th Eastern Conference

Team Role:
Depends on what Sather/Tortorella think of the teams. Could be buyers, could be partial sellers, could stand pat, but will most likely look for a cheap upgrade, ala Antropov 2009.

Team Strengths
Solid forward depth
Goaltending, goaltending, goaltending.
Young defense is solid, but inexperienced
PK forward depth
lots of grit, speed, and energy at wing

Team Weaknesses
lack of true gamebreakers, legitimate #1 center needed
No puckmovers
Low talent level

Prospect Strengths
Depth; a lot of solid potential 2nd/3rd line forwards and 2nd pairing defenseman

Prospect Weaknesses

High end level players. Not enough boom, too much safe.

Cap Space

With Frolov out for the year, and the Rozsival deal clearing 1.2 mil, the Rangers have a good amount of cap room for potential trade; around ~4.5-5 mil.

2011 draft picks 1st, 2nd, Wsh 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th
2012 draft picks 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

Pending UFAs Vinny Prospal, Alex Frolov(LTIR), Steve Eminger, Ruslan Fedetenko(IR)
Pending RFAs Artem Anisimov(not arbitration eligible), Brandon Dubinsky(arb. eligible), Ryan Callahan(arb. eligible), Mike Sauer(not sure if arb. eligible), Brian Boyle(arb. eligible), Matt Gilroy(arb. eligible)

Other assets

Vinny Prospal might be available if the Rangers feel they could get some solid assets for him. He's an upcoming UFA, but he's coming off of a 53 game miss.

Matt Gilroy has been really solid the past few weeks, but he'll likely be the odd man out with a qualifying offer of 2.1 at the end of the year. He's still relatively young(26) and learning, so he could be an asset to a team looking for a speedy bottom pairing defenseman.

Chris Dru- oh wait....

Points as of the day of posting and current standing
-75, 1st in League

Team Role:
-Buyers/Traders

Team Strengths
-Depth at all positions

Team Weaknesses
-Lack of cap space
-3rd line in a long slump
-Could use a bit more size, either in our bottom 2 lines or 1 usefull powerforward type with some hands on the 2nd line

Prospect Strengths

- Schneider/Lack... great goaltending
- Few offensive wings in Schroeder, Shirokov, Rodin

Prospect Weaknesses

- No truly dynamic forward
- No truly TOP d-prospect

Cap Space
-Right now about $3 mil due to Edler being out on LTIR until probably the playoffs. Could be drastically cut if Salo is to return soon.

- Realistically any forward we are looking at the cheaper the better. $500k-$2 mil range prefferable. Also need to have their term ending this season as they have a few key pieces to re-sign they need space for,


2011 draft picks 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th
2012 draft picks 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

Pending UFAs:
Raffi Torres, Kevin Bieksa, Sami Salo, Christian Ehrhoff, Andrew Alberts, Rick Rypien, Joel Perreault, Jeff Tambellini

Pending RFAs:
Jannick Hansen, Alex Bolduc, Lee Sweatt, Sergei Shirokov, Victor Oreskovich, Guilliam Desbiens, Mario Bliznak, Tyler Weiman

You'd think that Kaberle or Pitkanen could benefit the Rangers.

I agree but the Hurricanes would amiss to trade Pitkanen and the entire Maple Leafs organization and/or fanbase is off their ****ing rocker when it comes to all things Kaberle-related.

Yeah, Canes would have to have a losing streak to sell.

And yeah, the whole Kaberle thing is ridiculous. I'm so sick of hearing about him.

I'm a huge advocate of either/or, but I prefer Pitkanen due to age, and I've always been a huge fan of his.

Team Name


Points as of the day of posting and current standing
65pts through 51gp : 3rd in the East

Team Role:
Buyers / Traders

Team Strengths
Fowards, Goaltending, PK forward depth, Lots of size up front.

Team Weaknesses
Lacking #2 D-man, Lacking PMD, Speed.

Prospect Strengths
Lots of centers, Good depth at wing.

Prospect Weakness
Mobile defensemen, Goaltending.

Cap Space:

If and when Savard goes on LTIR the Bruins will have roughly ~5m in cap space to make a move.

2011 Draft Picks: 1st [TOR], 1st, 2nd [MIN], 2nd, 3RD [PHX], 4TH, 5TH, 6th
2012 Draft Picks: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th

Pending UFAs: Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi, Mark Stuart
Pending RFAs: Blake Wheeler, Brad Marchand,

Other assets:

Mostly picks and prospect. The Bruins probably wouldn't mind moving one of the 4 bottom pairing defensemen they have on the roster IE Stuart, Ference, Boychuk, McQuaid.

Looking to Buy:

Depth 3rd line center or winger with playoff experience, #2 D-man or a top-4 veteran D-man with playoff experience.

Points as of the day of posting and current standing:
64 points, 5th in the East

Team Role:
Buyers/Traders

Team Strengths:
Surprisingly defense. We dont really have a stand out shutdown defenseman but our goaltending has played very well and the defense and forwards are being much more defensivley resposible.

Team Weaknesses:
Our forwards (Ovechkin, Backstrom, Knuble etc) have not produced as much as we would like this year, but maybe they are saving themselves for the playoffs . We are really lacking depth at center and could use a top 4 defenseman.

Prospect Strengths:
We have alot of depth at forward(8 of our top 10 prospects are forwards)

Prospect Weaknesses:
You could state that we have a weak prospect pool in terms of defesnse, but with Alzner, Carlson, Green, Schultz you could argue it doesn't really matter.

Cap Space:
Max Acquisition Space at the deadline is $6,582,082.

2011 draft picks:
WAS 1st, WAS 3rd, WAS 4th, WAS 5th, WAS 6th, WAS 7th

2012 draft picks:
WAS 1st, WAS 2nd, WAS 3rd, WAS 4th, WAS 5th, WAS 6th, WAS 7th

Upcoming UFAs and RFAs:
Mike Knuble (UFA)
Brooks Laich (UFA)
Matt Bradley (UFA
Boyd Gordon (UFA)
Matt Hendricks (UFA)
Mathieu Perreault (RFA)
Scott Hannan (UFA)
Karl Alzner (RFA)
Semyon Varlamov (RFA)

Other assets:
Not quite sure really. GMGM is hard to read and you never really know what he is going to do untill he does it. I guess MAYBE Chimera, Schultz and or Fehr could be availabe for an upgrade.

JS Giguere ($6m, full NTC -- willing to waive)

RFA
Tyler Bozak ($875k)
Clarke MacArthur ($1.1m)
Luke Schenn ($875k)
Carl Gunnarsson ($630k)
James Reimer ($555k)

Other assets
Mike Komisarek ($4.5m X 3, partial NTC)

Toronto could part with pretty much anybody on the roster to get a relatively young top line player. They're not shopping for picks, and have very few roster players who they don't want back next year. (notably Komisarek, Giguere, likely Sjostrom)

Points as of the day of posting and current standing
57 Points, 10th, 50 Games Played
Team Role
Traders. Look for them to stand pat for the most barring a collapse pre-deadline.
Team Strengths
Goaltending, defense, fairly consistent contributions from 3 lines.
Team Weaknesses
Lack a high end scorer/difference maker.
Prospect Strengths
Sound contributors. Good depth to fill bottom lines/pairings.
Prospect Weaknesses
Outside of Scandella, Granlund, and perhaps Zucker; there's not a lot of higher end promise.
Cap Space
As it currently stands, $1,264,037 on Feb. 28th.
2011 draft picks
Hold all their picks but their 2nd Round selection which BOS possesses.
2012 draft picks
All.
Upcoming UFAs and RFAs
UFA
Andrew Brunette
Chuck Kobasew
Antti Miettinen
John Madden
Jose Theodore
Josh Harding *IR
RFA
NONE
Other assets
Not necessarily an "asset" but the team may look to dump the Cam Barker mistake at some point. Look for it to be an uneventful deadline for the Minnesota Wild.

Team Role
Sellers, looking to retool and play spoiler for the rest of the season. Not rebuilding.

Goaltending*, stay-at-home defense, depth at wings.

Weak-ish down the middle, no puck movers, aging goaltending.

Goaltending, lack of #1 prospect (Merril maybe, but only maybe).

Jason Arnott
Adam Mair
Andy Greene
Johan Hedberg
RFA
Zach Parise
Vladimir Zharkov
Tim Sesisto
Matt Corrente
Anssi Salmela
Mark Fraser

Other assets
David Clarkson

Devils will be sellers come deadline time. Look for us to get younger, most of our higher end prospects will most likely not be moved. Devils will try their hardest to re-sign Parise long-term in the offseason, he will not be traded before then if he is moved due to his injury (torn meniscus, out until March).
