I was thinking Dobson, hickey (salary dump), and a 1st would get it done

Replace Hickey with Leddy and you're probably closer to what they'd want

Not sure why everyone is trying to fix our Defense. It's playing the best it has in 25 years. We have solid youth on the team and in the system. We have some Veterans who are playing well... and some depth too.

Only way I am trading for a D-man is if something absurd comes around like Nurse. We are pretty solid with out back line.

I don't see the Isles adding on the blueline anytime soon. There's too much talent in the pipeline to justify throwing all sorts of assets around right now.

I think its more likely that we add someone of defense to round out the top 6. Come playoffs guys like Pelech wont get it done. Adding a player like Parayko would take alot of weight of Boychuk

It would, but a 25yo RH defenseman on a reasonable deal for 3 more years after this one isn't your typical deadline-day deal. Plus the aforementioned fact that the West is comical and the Blues are, somehow, still in the playoff race.

I'd read the rumoured price was a player, pick and prospect. Not sure if true.

If the Blues drop out of the race, I could see Parayko going for a Muzzin like package.

I agree. An impact forward is needed more.

Beauvillier/Leddy a pick and a prospect I should think.

Just one thing to think about re: the blueline:

Starting next season, Boychuk has to list 8 teams that he can be traded to. It's doubtful anyone wants to take him on with three years left on his deal, but it's possible that they could move him out.

I would NOT be in a hurry to trade Boychuk. I like his veteran leadership for our young d-men. Yeah, he's slow, but he's still effective. 3 goals, 10 assists, +10 through 51 games. If they can afford to keep him, they should.

Not saying they should, but it at least opens up another option to clear cap space down the line. There's gonna be a lot of guys fighting for 6 spots in a few years.

It makes it easier to spend money now, knowing that it's not impossible to clear $6M off the books at some point in the next 3 years, if need be. Dumping Ladd to Seattle and moving Boychuk would cover a hypothetical $11M deal for Panarin right there.

I thought our clever dump of PJ Boy cleared the $11M we need for Panarin.

That might've just been what Matthews wanted. That puts him at 27 when he is due another deal which will probably be a huge number at max-term.

To me I would take the eight year deal if I were Matthews. Why risk injury or depreciating play or whatever? Take 11.5 8yrs.
