    Assuming salary is retained, this would be a great pick up. I don't know who goes the other way though.

    This would involve our pick or a more NHL ready body going to Seattle.

    It's something like

    SEA receives:
    1st
    x
    Selection of Colin Blackwell

    NYR Receive:
    Mark Giordano @50%

    Ha! Well, I think he'd make a really good pairing with just about anyone in the lineup. Lindgren could certainly se him as well.

    Even if they get Giordano at 50% salary retention, isn't giving up the first a bit of an overpayment still, especially at this stage of his career? I don't know.

    It's a mid-first in a very weak draft.

    True. It will get traded either way, maybe better for a Tarasenko or part of a deal to move up for a higher pick in the first round to use in a deal for Eichel.

    No. He's still a tremendous player and leader. He's everything they're looking for minus overt, brute physicality.

    This type of move would compare to when they picked up MSL or Shanahan.

    only reason i'd want to keep it is to take the high risk/reward on Raty

    Yeah, fair, good comparisons. I wouldn't be too disappointed if they had to give up the first necessarily. It's a perfect fit.

    From all the rumors, Rick Carpinello, Elliott Friedman, others + my source.
    Rangers really busy weekend?

    To SEA: Hajek, Gauthier + 3rd round pick
    To NYR: Giordano(sal retained)

    To OTT: Strome + 1st
    To NYR: Ott 1st

    To BUF: Ott 1st, Buch, Chytil and Jones
    To NYR: Eichel. https://mobile.twitter.com/mickey8ra...94611234787328

    I’m very much for getting Giordano. Checks a lot of boxes for us. I’d love to see if we can get him with some retention, but even if we don’t, this is the final year of his contract. He is by no means washed up; still a very effective player and would be a tremendous add to the blue line.

    Please try to share credible sources and not random rumor mongers on Twitter.

    He's also not near done yet. Barring a total collapse/misfit, I could see them keeping him considering they were pretty hard after Chara.

    For sure. And obviously his next contract won’t be near what this one was, as it was signed during his peak years.

    I can see him, if he has a good season whether it be here or elsewhere, signing his next deal similar to the one we gave Boyle (who obviously was a shell of himself) for 2 years around an AAV of $4 Million.

    We should know in the next little bit. Has anyone besides Carp reported on it?
