Considering how Trotz is constantly talking about the chemistry in the room I don't see them trading anyone off the current roster in season.

Even if that someone is kuhnackl? I disagree.

If that's the case, then they won't be making any trades.

Chemistry is important and all, but if there's a trade that makes the team better now and in the future then you move someone off the roster and don't think twice about it.

Trotz also doesn't really have the final say on what happens. That's up to one man only.

I realized that. Neither was I other than the Doughty comment.

Not saying I agree with it but I think they value his playoff experience.

Maybe, that'd probably be the sticking point in the negotiations. Picks are picks, but the real debate is on who's NHL ready and how high guys' ceilings are.

Here, based on what you added to your post before...

https://www.sportsnet.ca/...nators-high-asking-price/

“The market is drying up on Mark Stone for the Ottawa Senators, for no other reason than because they’re ask is so high,” Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reported Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada‘s ‘Headlines’ segment. “They’d love to mirror the pieces that they got with Duchene. The difference is the prospects out of Columbus are regarded as maybe Bs and Cs, and what they’re looking for for Stone is grade-A — guys that actually can step in and play right away.

“And right now, there doesn’t seem to be any teams biting, including the Winnipeg Jets.”


Maybe they ultimately take something like 19 1st, 20 conditional 1st, Aho and Bellows. Still a hefty price, but it'd allow us to keep Beauvillier in the fold.

I mean the guy said he's got an "informed suspicion" that there's good news, even though he doesn't think it's a trade?

If he comes back and tweets that one of the Bridgeport goalies' wives gave birth to a kid or something I'm driving to Bridgeport this afternoon and kicking that guy right square in the dick.

- eichiefs9

kidding aside, and assuming it's not a baby announcement, having the #1 & 2 goalies in the league does offer flexibility. Great position to be in, but trading Greiss (or Lehner - although I think I'd prefer keeping him) now while his stock is high does have merit. There are a few teams in need of goaltending...

Frankly, I don't think they will. And not only for that reason. Just making the playoffs this year is gravy considering the pre-season expectations. I don't see Lou giving up assets - especially picks since they are not exactly flush in that department currently, for rentals that might get you a round. And I know it's Lou's call on trades but I can't believe that Trotz wouldn't have some say.

If they have a chance of upgrading this team I believe that they don’t think twice about dumping a player who is a healthy scratch more often than not to make room. Just my opinion...

To your point earlier, I'd love to see WPG/CGY/BOS/NSH all go out and pick up secondary guys, like Hayes/Johansson/Nyquist/etc...

That would really put Dorion in a hell of a position with Stone. Risk losing him for nothing or have to drop the price to more along the lines of what Duchene got.

- eichiefs9



Imho I think that is what he will get for Stone. The same deal with the second first being conditional if Stone signs.

It’s possible. Stated many times they could do just this but if not trading kuhnackl is the reason I will say right now that is a bit scary to me😂

Probably with a slight upgrade in the prospects part of the trade. Can’t see him getting more than that.

Lou typically addresses the goaltending on his teams first. He did it with the Devils, The Leafs and the Islanders so I don’t see him trading a goalie going into the POs.

Really he’s having his best year offensively and does play well defensively but if I were trading I would give less for Stone than Duchene. Again just my opinion.
Now Stone will land 3 firsts

Agreed. Especially the way these two guys are playing. Possible I guess but a long shot.

I was completely being saracastic on that page with every proposed trade I put up. I don’t value picks/prospects as much as some on here but come on that was obvious sarcasm😂

I have to believe Lou and Trotz both feel this team needs more offense if they really want to make some noise in the playoffs and will risk some chemistry.

Also could Lehner be are future goalie? The kid looks awfully good.

Last year he made a save against the islanders which after review was changed into a goal and even though the puck did cross the line I just remember thinking this kid can be a very good goalie.

He could be. The only issue is him falling off the wagon which is a very real possibility. Most addicts do. That’ll most likely have an effect on his next contract whether it’s with us or another team.

I may do that with some serious salary retention on LA’s part.
