That would be the worst outcome. It's the "likely to be available" part that is the hangup. We'll never get the goalie I want via a trade unless its this pick plus more, plus a team being stupid enough to trade away their future #1 goalie. Its what I would want with that pick. It will never happen. 4 minutes ago, MB3 said: If you vote "trade for immediate help", you should include a "who". Like, is the immediate help Kevin Fiala? Hard fvcking pass. Slafkovsky is being compared to Rantannen, do you trade a cost controlled guy like that for $9m+/y Kevin Fiala? Hell no. But is the immediate help Spencer Knight? I'm going to keep speaking this into existence. Going into next season, the Panthers have 3.9m in cap space. They need to re-sign entirely a full bottom-6, a full 3rd pairing defenseman, and are only one year away from the "year of reckoning" -- where they will owe new contracts to Knight, Weegar, Lundell, and -- oh yeah -- some guy named Jonathan Huberdeau. They flat out cannot afford to pay Spencer Knight the 5+ he will be asking for (thanks, Rangers) AND continue to pay Bobrovski $10m AND re-sign their home-grown superstar winger who has now averaged 95 points per 82 games played FOUR seasons in a row. I'm happy with 2nd overall for Spencer Knight. I'm happy with Slaf. I'm sure there are other players that I'd consider trading 2OA for, but it sure as fvck isn't Kevin Fiala. This is exactly what I meant. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
