So we're giving up a 40+ point all-star dman in his prime locked up long term and a 3rd line winger who is in his prime locked up long term for a shitty long-term contract, a promising junior player, and a 1st or a 2nd?
lol ppl ITT are like a bunch of wolves
once one person doesn't a suggestion, everyone else jumps in
but seriously next time I'll provide explanation of why in the initial post so people's jimmies don't get rustled quickly
at least with Franzen you get someone who shows up in the playoffs, his salary goes down each year after next year, cap hit is better than Booth's @4M, great goal scorer when healthy, and no cap penalty if he retires early, no NTC
but yes, injury-prone and streaky at times, sometimes lazy, aging
so its not as TERRIBLE as some suggest, but worth the risk cause Mantha is gonna be a beast, quote me on it
DET also has Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco up for grabs if the deal is right
only one i can think of was what when canucks acquired Roy.
and it wasnt significant parts given for him
Before the 2011 run, he picked up Higgins and Lapierre which were supposed to be rentals for the 4th line as they were both UFA/RFA (I believe). They both ended up re-signing the next year.
The next year, he traded for Kassian for CoHo (the one exception where picks weren't given for the targeted player, and target wasn't a rental).
That same year, he got Pahlsson at the deadline for a prospect.
Last year would've been the Roy trade you mentioned.
There are your MG deadline deals.
For a potential Detroit deal- wouldn't it be something if Kesler wanted to go back home and become the number 1/2 center there, packaged with Edler for a bunch of Detroit's younger players? That'd qualify as quite the splash that Doug MacLean was alluding to in his cryptic comment.
Read: I'm not suggesting it's going to happen, or that it's an actual trade idea. I have no reason to believe that MG will move NTCs especially as he said he would never ask a player to move. I'm just speculating that there's a fit there with Detroit's centers on the backside of their career arcs and the Canucks' need for youthful skill. No need to roast me lol
this thread would be better if people weren't afraid of posting their opinions... probably due to the condescending attitudes and hatred, that has built up over the years, all the trolling, and bullying, shitting on ppl for what they think (perhaps why a lot of regulars dont even bother anymore coupled with disappointment of what has transpired the past 3 seasons)
^to answer the question
trading Edler and Kesler to the same team wouldn't be smart because you wanna maximize your value, which you can with multiple teams, I guess it also depends what kinda mentality the FO has too, straight up rebuild or like an on-the-go etc.
NTC/NMC is just a whole clusterfuck Gillis has to deal with, total head scratcher
