    Targeting Winnipeg in a Trade?

    If I ran the Rangers (and had the D to give up)....I'd do my best to fleece Winnipeg of one of their centers at this moment.

    They need centers, too.
    Remember... they traded for Hayes at the deadline... guys dont like playing with Little, etc.

    They don't have a quality center to acquire (that they would give up in exchange for D help). At best, I think you're offering them Brendan Smith for whatever paltry return they offer.

    Literally the only thing we can do with them is offer them Smith and say you can have him for nothing hoping a 1m retention in salary makes them bite.

    They have like $5M+ in available cap right now. If the Rangers simply took back something to offset somewhat, you could effectively just move him to give them a warm body. Letestu. Bourque. Something in that realm.

    I feel like they would try to trade us Perrault for Smith which leaves us in the same cap situation unless they retained salary....or maybe Staal? Might be slightly more interest based on pedigree.

    Wait, is this a legit rumor or just a random topic?

    It’s just a discussion based on Winnipeg’s depleted d-corps. Been discussed many times recently pretty much with every team that has extra D to spare.

    Pionk played 26 minutes and scored, tonight.

    He always seems to find himself in a position to play Norris level minutes despite possesing a Eddie Shore award pedigree.

    The only center they have that would be of interest is Scheifele, and that's the definition of a non starter.

    Some GM in the league will take advantage of them right now. I wish Wheeler was available and we had some D to give up for him. The way he played against the Rangers was impressive.

    You can't trade Skjei yet. He gets at least a full year with Trouba.

    Perrault is interesting, though I think we'd have to sweeten the pot (and I doubt whether or not they'd have any interest in Smith at all).

    Perrault would get a good get because he's an upgrade to Strome/Namest while filling the same role. The problem would be that he has a higher cap hit and isn't a UFA, so he's a lot more difficult to trade.

    Perreault feels like a slightly more talented version of Strome to me. He's clearly not a 2C either, so why would he be the guy they want?

    To trade at the deadline too, I mean. He's not a long-term guy but would help you get more of a return for a guy like Smith, potentially.

    Oh, I see. Move Smith for Perreault, then move Perreault for futures — two birds, one stone. Not bad. But can't you just do that with Strome right now?

    Yes. AND do it with Perrault. I initially had two thoughts going on at the same time.

    If you flip Smith for Perrault, and trade Strome, you have a slightly better lineup, plus whatever return Strome gets now. At the deadline, you flip Perreault also. It's basically just adding another - as much as I hate this term lol - asset, while offloading Smith.

    Solid plan on paper. Time to give Chevvy a call.
