SALARY CAP, 11 million to play with. SOMEONE is GOING

Recommended Posts

I don't see why Detroit does this...

They have Larkin and Athanasiou down the middle...

And would have to pay more for Nuge's versatility I guess...

While Nuge has 2. I'd have to think if Detroit wants to do this, Yzerman would have to add extra.

What if we swap 1st round picks this year? Detroit has 6th, we have 8th, I’d be all over that.

Because nuge had 70 points this year and Mantha had 48.

Yes please. A shot at Turcotte or Dach.

Exactly, we could get a future center and have Mantha burying pucks right now. Sure beats paying Nuge 8M in 2 years. Trade him now while he has value and term

Hmmmm, interesting but #1 why would Detroit need to pay 'more'? I don't get it. RNH's best year, prior to this season, was back to back 56 points seasons 4 season's ago. I don't / can't see Detroit making this deal for two years of RNH when they have AM for three more years. Maybe they do do this deal straight across, I don't know, but I don't think  they need to sweeten the pot.

We have a shot at Dach already, the USA U18's did such a great job at that tourney - Dach is dropping like a stone because he has foot speed issues (though so did Draisaitl which is why we got him at 3). 

I think Dach will be there for us - no idea if we pick him though. But every year it seems, there's a top 4 or 5 guy that for whatever reason, drops. I think this year it will be Dach as those USHL kids who participated in the U18 has seen their stock rise quite a bit. As an example, because of his size many pundits thought that Cole Caufield would be there easily for us. But based on his scoring prowess, the way the NHL is going, and the success of a Johnny Gaudreau and Alex Debrincat, some have him going as high as 4 or 5. Seems like the USHL is taking over for the CHL as the place to draft - as the vast majority of these kids go to college for a least a year as well, if not two - and US College hockey is a much better development place then the CHL. There are a lot of 'men' in that league (guys that are 21 to 25 years old) vs Junior which is rife with 16 and 17 year olds. Plus they get a ton more practice time there. 

Guess we'll see - but IMO RNH for Anthony Mantha straight up would be a great trade for us, not so sure how it would work for Detroit. But hey I'd take a 3rd round pick in addition (to make up for the Petrovic trade).
