Welcome to the Thursday prospect ramblings. This week I will go over what teams I think will make deals to make the playoffs as they assume they are in. Same format as two weeks ago, so a couple notes.

 

Also, #GoodTweet of the week:

NOTE: Wow I was wrong about Addison from Pittsburgh. I think I should have flipped him and Poulin

 

 

*******************

 

First the trades that went down recently, my opinions (which are the best opinions):

 

 

Jason Zucker for Galchenyuk, Addison and a conditional first (2020):

  • Great deal for both sides. The late first is key but Addison could become a legit #1PP QB to work for years with Kaprizov

 

 

Andy Green for a second (2021) and David Quenneville”

  • Only Lou would use a second on Greene and was the key to the deal. Quenneville likely will not be more than an AHL dman

 

 

Blake Coleman for Nolan Foote and Vancouver’s conditional first (2020):

  • Coleman is a great bottom-six player that produces like a second liner on a great deal and to move him the Devils got the better of either 2020 or 2021 first round picks and Nolan Foote, who is a good offensive player the Devils need in the system. I have never been that big of a fan of Foote but he has improved this year no doubt

 

 

Tyler Toffoli for Tyler Madden, Tim Schaller, a second (2020) and a conditional fourth (2022)

  • A pretty steep price if Toffoli will produce like he has been limited to produce in LA. If he can get back to the 30 goal ways it will be a good deal. Slightly expensive… probably but I am not as high n Madden as others

 

 

Julien Gauthier for Joey Keane

  • Yep

 

 

Dylan DeMelo for a third (2020)

  • Jets get stability on the back end for a cheap price

 

 

Brenden Dillon for a second (2020) and a conditional third (2021)

  • I do not get it because then Siegenthaler becomes the odd-man out, no chance for Djoos or Fehervary to get back in, and does not address the Capitals need for depth scoring

Marco Scandella for a second (2020) and a fourth (2021)

  • LOL at Montreal getting a better return for Scandella than Buffalo

 

 

Denis Malgin for Mason Marchment

  • I would 1000000% rather have Malgin, but Tallon gonna Tallon

 

 

Alex Martinez for two seconds (2020 & 2021)

  • At least the Kings are FINALLY rebuilding and Vegas gets a good top four defenseman
