    I realize Brassard hasn't been producing the points expected, but I still love the deal. Brassard is a big upgrade on Z-Bad IMO. Hopefully White or Brown can play the wing next year because I am very comfortable with Brassard/Turris/Pageau as our top 3 centres.

    With Hoffman, Ryan and Stone we still need one more top winger. I wonder if Tampa would still do a Ceci for Drouin deal.

    I really doubt that they would. I don't think it ever was a one for one either. I think they wanted a top prospect also.

    Yeah we definetely need another scoring threat up on the left. A JVR/Saad type of player. Sadly I don't see it happening.
    If it did it would likely cost us our 1st, one of our 3 top prospect and a player. Which... I flip flop on wether we should or not.

    We have given him a lot of talent to work with. We don't need him to win the cup IMO.

    The package he would get would be massiv.e
    The days of the lindros deals are dine and over with. Unless it's a McDavid coming the other way we will never win a trade. You look at the last 10 years and it's nearly always been best player in deal that tilts who wins this deal. We would lose. It might be time to deal a high pick and a high prospect for an impact forward. As much as I hate it.

    Remember when Lazar was untouchable?
    Did I ever say that? I can't remember thinking it. I never thought he'd be much more than a fringe top 6. I remember thinking the best he could be would be a 3rd line center with some scoring potential.

    No way, not with Stamkos being legit injury prone now.

    Stamkos, Callahan and Fillpula all have NMCs. Add in Kucherov, Johnson, Palat, Killorn and Drouin. Can't protect them all in the expansion draft.

    they would have never traded Drouin for Ceci.

    That's a fair point. But I expect Drouin will be one that gets protected.
    No matter what they do Tampa is getting screwed out of a good player. You can pretty much bet on that. Maybe they are hoping that Vegas negotiates a deal with Bishop so they don't have to lose anyone.
