If someone blows the doors off for Nico, I think you listen. Dawson Mercer can fill that role and 3 legitimate centers on a last place garbage team is a luxury they cannot afford.

I’d listen on any player not named Jack Hughes, Dawson Mercer, Jesper Bratt, or Dougie Hamilton. No one is off limits for me other than those four.

A deal for Nico would have to be huge though.

I'm not into the idea of trading Nico right now, but I would certainly listen to huge offers.

Yeah I know Nico's become a bit of a whipping boy in some circles as of late, but I want to see what he can do with better wingers to work with.

As a rookie, he put up 20 G and 32 A in 82 GP, with an MVP on one wing, and an in-his-prime Palms on the other.

Right now, through 41 GP (10 G and 16 A), he's on pace for the EXACT same numbers...and he's managed to do that with considerably less talented linemates most nights.  Stands to reason that with upgrades, Nico could sniff 60+ points if he can play 80ish games (or at least be on that kind of a pace).

And if he can stop getting hit in the face all the time.

Yeah all kidding aside Nico does seem to have a way of getting beat up a lot.  Given how young he was when he started, he could be one of those guys who's near-finished by his early-30s.

Heh heh it does sound blasphemous, but even if that did happen, he'll have played well over 10 NHL seasons.  Not like everyone does that.  

Of course, I hope he has a long and terrific career and I hope it happens here.  I still think highly of him, and feel like he hasn't reached his full upside yet.

You have a point there. Has to be him to get a decent goaltender if that is what is on the menu for the deadline or most likely the off-season. I don’t know who else you could move for a good one. Besides the guys we cannot afford to trade at all.

Good deal for Montreal. Fitz must start to think faster. Not every GM will trade his first round pick. And we still need more. For a big trade after or for making prospect pool better. Team looks like devs have 3-4 legit top-6 players, may be top6 players, good fourth line and may be 1-2 players for the third line. Defensive line on the right side is very questionable. There are a lot of good prospect in the deep of the first round. Zacha as a player with 29 goals in his last 95 games on the cheap contract can be a very interesting player for sale. One more year + (qo).  Severson is on the pick of his price too.

Straight swap for who? 

There seems to be an obvious fit with Connor Garland. Vancouver is interested in Zacha and the Devils are interested in Garland.

I hate that the trade deadline is so late in hockey. The NBA trade deadline was last week. I honestly wish they’d move it up to February.

I always feel the opposite.  I can't stand it when the trade deadline is like right after the new year.  If I'm the GM of a team in the playoff picture, I'm pissed as fvck that I can't tweak my roster and acquire anyone in the back third of the season.  I mean, there's still so much hockey left to be played.  I feel like putting the trade deadline so early limits GMs and team's abilities to do something.  Granted most deals tend to happen right when the deadline approaches, but in all reality GMs have that much more time to work with the later the deadline is in the season.

I think the “split the difference” answer works good here. Final week of February/March 1 is both long enough after the new year and a sufficient amount of time before the playoffs.

March 21 is too late IMO. It used to be March 1. I’d prefer it to be in the beginning of March.

Is it later because the season started later? I don’t even fvcking remember anymore.
