In this trade it seems everyone won. Ottawa got a respectable player back and rid themselves of a problem. Florida got a respectable LW for a handful of picks, none of which were a first. SJS cleared cap and landed a handful of picks to boot.

All three teams had different goals and they seemed to accomplish them.
Ottawa also saves a lot of real money.

Hoffman gets $5.65M-per over the next two seasons.

Boedker gets $3M-per over the next two seasons.

Also I'll bet throw-in young RH dee Bergman is their #7/#8 dman next year and he has upside.

Hes a 1st line left winger Vic...sort out the crazy old lady issues and theres the other side of your top line for peanuts. The canucks LW depth is all either 19 yrs olds or career underachievers like Sven Bearchi/7 hits Eriksson
Hoffman is going to hit UFA in 2 years, already making 5 mil per, he'll probably want/get 7+ on a long term deal at the ripe old age of 30.

He's a good player now ready to help a team get over the hump and win a cup - by the time the Canucks window is wide open again, he'll be 32-36 years old - rather the team spend the money then on a big name player in his late 20's to put them over the top.

Signing him as a 30 year old to anything longer than a 3-4 year deal would be the clear definition of wasted cap space.
This i can agree with.

It always fires up the fan in me whenever top liners get moved for far less than market value and my team isnt in on it
He’s a lumbering player who is turning 29. This team needs speed not another Loui who’s soft and slow. Build with youth

First skate park was an indoor one in south Burnaby. Had to have a paid membership. We used to ride the Weiser wall everyday after school. Weekends Nico and his North Van hangers on used to bus it over so we could show them how to ride.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Boedker was the guy I wanted when LE was signed.

And the guy taken with the 16th overall draft pick in 2015 that EDM traded to the Islanders for Griffin Reinhart just won the Calder.

Tired of trading away former 1st round picks, Chiarelli today confirmed they are dangling the 10 OA for a top rated Dman. Said they have had talks with a few teams but the price is high, higher than just the 10 OA.
The only HW the Canucks need

I would do Tanev for the 10 OA + prospect.

Hutton and MDZ for 10oa and 4th rounder?

This is a really tough call.
Honestly, the only top ranked D-men we have are Edler and Tanev.
But, at the same time, this is a good draft class and Tanev will probably continue with the non-career threatening injuries and miss 30 games.
I guess I'd need a prospect too.

Trotz to NYI

If they play their cards right with the 11th and 12th overall picks, Tavares ain't going anywhere.

Nobody wants to do EDM any favours.

Trade with OTT makes too much sense, but Karlsson probably doesn't waive to live in EDM.

PK doesn't have a NT/NMC - maybe the 10th plus RNH for Subban

Depends I guess on whether Chiarelli only wants to part with the 10th OA. If he is intent on that then he may have to settle for a second pairing guy.

For Nashville to move on from PK he needs D back. Hanafin for the 10th plus something a lot less than RNH or Tanev plus something for the 10OA plus something.

I’d do the 10 OA straight up but doubt Edmonton does that. But if we could snag that pick we could move the 7th plus for Hanafin.

I’m saying a lot of pluses cause I literally have no idea what it would take.
