Seattle deal in a heartbeat

Laughton seems to be a flyer rebuild or not
Sanheim contract way too high

If u can get kovecny at half price for 2 years I say go for it

Very similar style of play and numbers nylander puts up just 1 year behind do to age.

I guess if nylander has a deal in place that is minimum 4 years with Colorado before trade and Colorado feels they can settle on good number in arb with liljegren and resign him to a multi year deal then I don’t see why not

However if nylander ain’t signed prior and liljegren arb case goes sour than Is 4 years of Lehkonen and my god 2 years plus a possible 8 years of Byram worth 1 year of nylander/ lili

Sure 1 year of rantanen Mackinnon nylander would be fun and i bet nylander gets 100 points and a 11 million dollar deal to follow so Colorado better have a deal in place before that or he will play his way outta colorados pricing.

On second thought if I was nylander and knew I got a year with mackinnon and rantanen I probably would sign a damn thing.

So yeah Colorado says no based on thst there no nylander signs a deal before hand. That one almost got by me.

Is bushnevich that far off from nylanders worth? bush puts up a bit over a point a game but can’t stay completely health 60-70 games per year. He scores less but plays way better defence.
The gap between faulk and brodies value is far too great for st. Louis to consider this I’d think.

The only selling point on this is bushnevich is owed 6.9 and 6.3 actual money vs his 5.85 cap hit (1.5 diff)
Faulk is owed 7.9 in actual money this year but then drops off to 4.75 4.5 4.5 in final 3 years on a 6.5 cap hit so once st. Louis gets through this year Faulk becomes a valued salary contract and he still puts up 50 points and is a plus player so can’t see Faulk being part of this deal

Nylander is only owed 2.5 actual money which makes his value sky rocket but only to non cap strapped teams that need to save every real dollars. Unfortunetly, st. Louis is not one of these teams. they are pretty rich and flex it when they can and are usually hovering around the cap
Other problem here is Brodie is owed 7.5. Yikes
No team will see value in that final year

Add in faults full no trade clause until 2025 that I don’t see him waiving and the 12 team no trade bush has that I think he has Toronto on due to he hated the media circus in New York so why would he want even a bigger circus.
and don’t forget both nylander and Brodie have 10 no trade list as well.
I’m sure stlouis wont be on nylanders but Brodie is older has a family so he might have thst location in his no zone.
And the final nail in the coffin is the 6 years worth of contracts vs 2 years worth of contracts being dealt.

St. Louis wants krug out and his contract cap value and length and trade clause restrictions are the same as Faulk except how he gets paid salary wise is differant as he is owed 8.5 8.5 6.5 and 6. That’s 29.5 million still owed to the guy. That’s 3.5 million more in actual money than his cap hit and his cap hit is a bit steep for a -26 guy. No wonder they wanna deal him. At least Faulk is still plays close to his cap hit and his final 3 years even if his play declines he’s only owed 13.7 in final 3 years. Krug not so much.
Krug is from Michigan so he just may consider knowing stlouis doesn’t want him why would u stay when u got a chance at something special. He has made the cup finals 2 times with Boston but lost both. I’m sure he has a bitter sweet taste in his mouth afterall he signed with stlouis 12 months after they best his bruins in the finals.

So to end thing long pointless dribble
Nylander Brodie for bush and Krug makes more sense on stlouis end as long as nylander has a deal in place before trade.

If still do this deal as Krug might have a rebound year and bushy boy I think Toronto fans just may fall in love with him. He’s of the Bertuzzi domi bread as he plays hard and wears his heart on his sleeve only he has more offensive flare.

Bush Matthews marner best defensive line candidate and since bush is a pass first fella Matthews might hit 70.
Yeah I’d take 4 years of Krug to get 2 years of the Russian bush.
