Colton Parayko Goes to.... Also, the Flyers/Sens talk Stone. Frost?
The THE 2018-19 Trade RUMOR CHART Is LIVE and today I have already updated a dozen players.
On Mark Stone and the Flyers...
I am hearing the Flyers and Senators have had talks regarding Mark Stone...This goes back a ways, into the Hextall era even, but the Sens would require some serious return of prospects the Flyers may now be more interested in moving...I was told that Morgan Frost is NOT in this in any way...
Now let's go back to the great Colton Parayko offers....I looked many of them over and I have made my decision...
Here are some of the best offer and my thoughts prior to me revealing the actual winner...
Joel 878 offered:
Parayko for Jake Gardiner, Conner Brown, Carl Grundstrom
Ek's Notes: There were quite a few completely unrealistic Leaf offers but this one does intrigued me...I would want to make sure I can sign Gardiner first....which sounds like it may be too difficult...
To Blues: McAvoy, Lauzon, First round pick 2018 for Parayko
While this was the BEST offer I received, I cannot see ANY way the Bruins make this deal. The Blues would be lucky to get McAvoy ALONE for Parayko...
Brassard, Maatta, Sprong, 1st FOR Bozak and Parayko
This also bordered on the overpayment, but almost EXACTLY as this deal was proposed Sprong was sent elsewhere...I do believe Brassard and Maatta are available...
jake gardiner + Dakota Joshua + conditional 3rd in 2019 for Parayko the 3rd is upgraded to a 2nd if the Leafs make the SCF the 2nd is upgraded to a 1st if the Leafs win the Cup!.
I really like the creativity here...however Gardiner as a UFA scares me.
Return of the Roar:
Murphy, Boqvist and Forsberg for Parayko.
This is a REALLY good trade proposal and may actually get it done...I love Adam Boqvist and Forsberg could help the Blues in goal. I am one of the few people out there who really likes Forsberg....The only reason I don't make this trade is I need more that will help me immediately. I am in win-now mode...
The winner is....
Proposing a William Nylander + Jake Gardiner, for Colton Parayko + Jordan Kyrou trade. Willie will be an 80-90 point guy, so you wanna give this some thought. We have cap room this season and would be willing to retain 25% of Nye's salary this season, plus we'll take Jay Bouwmeester (UFA end of season) for the remainder of this season to make your cap situation work. We would also send Carl Grundstrom and Calle Rosen back your way to sweeten the deal.
Awesome job and well thought out...plus HUGE points for creativity! I love the concept of adding in Bouwmeester and even though Nylander signed after this proposal he signed a deal that will keep him in trade rumors..this is my pick..
What say you???
