NFT: NHL Second Half - Trade Deadline - And More

pjcas18 : 1/29/2019 2:39 pm
Technically past the literal halfway point, but the AS break is over and onto the next part of the season.

Standings:

Biggest surprises to me are:

Islanders: even with a down year for the Metro the Islanders weren't supposed to be here, and they may not be at the end, but they are now. A +25 goal differential is not a fluke for the standings.

Canadiens: Bergevin takes a ton of shit for the failed Subban trade (and deservedly so), but his Galchenyuk and Paccioretty trades have worked beautifully and even though I was surprised to see Kotkaniemi taken ahead of Zadina and Tkachuk I see why, he's a better player. They left the world juniors with the best forward, best defenseman, and could have had best goalie. Things in hockey can turn around quickly. Unlike the Islanders I don't think the Canadiens can sustain their playoff spot, but I didn't think they'd be here either.

Avalanche:
We all knew MacKinnon was a superstar but that top line is flying, they have some good prospects, and they have a lot of youth, needle pointing up for the Avs, but didn't expect them to show results so soon.

could be more, but those to me are three of the biggest 1st half surprises.


Deadline:

Leafs acquired Muzzin from LA for a 1st. I don't think Muzzin is worth a 1st, he's solid, but not great, but Toronto needs D and he's better than most of their D other than Rielly. Makes them a contender if they weren't already. This is a trade if I am TOR I make every time.

Anakim will be happy (or not) that Panarin said he will not negotiate with the BJ's who had made public that they were willing to discuss a LT deal, so he's likely (if not guaranteed) to be traded. Downside for Rangers fans would be if he signs with his new team.

Other rumored names to be dealt:
Wayne Simmonds (and anyone on the Flyers not named Giroux or Hart)

Bobrovsky - should be a lot of interest, even in a down year for him

Bobrovsky is a rental. Not sure what it would take to get him. I'm very bad at predicting trade value.

1st round pick I'm guessing. Maybe a bottom part of their top 10 prospects.

Wild lose Mikko  
pjcas18 : 2/6/2019 5:14 pm : link
Koivu for the year.

big loss.

Not a huge point guy, but 55% on the dots, and #2C, #2 PP unit, and PK. Hard to replace that.

They are holding on to a WC spot right now, but I wonder if this makes them buyers or sellers (I doubt it changes nothing).

A big blow for the #MNWild as Mikko Koivu is done for the year with a torn ACL. Koivu is one of the top defensive centers in the league and has blocked more passes, per game, than any forward this season.

I heard during Habs Jets intermission last night the asking price for Panarin is absurd. especially as a rental. Didn't get into details, but as the next two weeks go by I wonder if it drops.

Plus if players like Duchene and Stone hit the market it could swing a little bit to a buyers market, right now it's not.

There is word today Artemis Panarin has joined teammate Sergei Bobrovsky’s agent, Paul Theofanous. This is going to lead to plenty of speculation they could be a package deal in free agency. We will see how it plays out.

If it's a package deal, Carolina and the Islanders come to mind as teams that have needs there and would be able to fit both in. Rangers obviously would love Panarin and he would love to come to NY, but they obviously have no need for Bob.

Maybe a 3-team trade. I don't think the Rangers will or should pursue Panarin as a rental, but in a 3-team trade they could get him without Bob.

Right, but I'm talking about free agency. Rangers obviously have no need to rent Panarin until the end of the year.

Panarin's new agent also represents Kravtsov so the Rangers brass will be talking with the agent anyway.
If I were the Rangers  
pjcas18 : 2/8/2019 12:56 pm : link
and Panarin wanted to talk extension, I'd be interested in acquiring him at the deadline.

too much competition in free agency.

Especially if it only cost veterans the Rangers weren't going to extend anyway (and picks).

Say Columbus wanted Zucc and 1st and a 3rd piece. Wouldn't that make sense for the Rangers if they could extend Panarin (obviously depending who the 3rd piece was).
Islanders have had maybe the best  
Metnut : 2/8/2019 1:25 pm : link
goaltending tandem in the NHL this year. It's a big part of why they are in first place. They also have an elite goalie prospect in Sorokin who only has one more year on his KHL deal remaining.

Paying out a huge cap hit to Bobo would make zero sense for the Islanders given their other needs (#2 center and power play finisher).

I expect the Islanders to offer as much money and term for Panarin as anyone.
Same agent reps Sorokin (NYI G prospect reportedly coming next yr)  
Eric on Li : 2/8/2019 1:35 pm : link
and has met with Lamoriello several times this year. I'd be surprised if the Isles commit big money to BOB at this point with the way Lehner has played, but I suppose however things go rest of the season could impact that. I'd also imagine for that agent/Sorokin they'd be less willing to come over if the Isles committed huge dollars to BOB, but who knows.
Would be a head scratching move for sure  
Metnut : 2/8/2019 1:41 pm : link
to commit big cap dollars and term to an aging goalie given the Islanders other needs and stellar goalie play this season.
I think the package  
pjcas18 : 2/8/2019 1:48 pm : link
deal speculation is silly if it's solely based on the same agent.

I see no way that makes sense.

probably just lazy pondering.

He looks like a PP only guy to me, not sure PIT needs him with Crosby, Malkin and Kessel, but maybe WAS is a fit.

He took a penalty in OT today that led to the Bruins winning goal.

I do think he could get moved though. He has a NMC but I suspect he wants to play for a contender.

NYI could be a good fit for Kovalchuk but only if LA pays down his $  
Eric on Li : 2/9/2019 4:35 pm : link
by a lot. Or takes back Ladd. Although the prospect of the Islanders being able to LTIR Ladd may not even make them that desperate to dump him. Even if he was almost free, it would probably only make sense if they strike out on all other targets first - but he is exactly what they need on the PP (which has been by far their biggest weakness).

I wouldn't. A 1st isn't likely to be as good as Hayes, and B/C prospects are a dime a dozen. Get me a top 4 RH defenseman and a 1st and we can talk.

pjcas18 : 2/18/2019 10:05 am : link
they definitely should not keep both Zucc and Hayes IMO.

I'd trade both, but I can see a case made for keeping Hayes.

I think Zucc is gone and should be. Not saying he's a bad player by any stretch, but if you're going to rebuild you do it by getting younger and more flexible on the salary cap.

Rumors  
pjcas18 : 2/18/2019 10:10 am : link
say the Zucc and Hayes market will be determined to an extent by Ottawa and Columbus.

Mark Stone is apparently gone. No doubt will be moved.

They are deciding today (allegedly) if they will trade Matt Duchene too.

The reason the NYR veterans are tied to OTT and CBJ is b/c Panarin, Stone and Duchene would be option #1, #2, and #3 for any team looking for top 6 forward depth. All three are better than Hayes and Zucc and similarly aged to Hayes.

Panarin being shopped though is trickier since CBJ is still in the playoff race.
