Buffalo: E.Kane

Tampa: Ryan Callahan,Libnor Hajek,1st rd 2018 and 2nd 2019

Buffalo- Gets picks to help their rebuild and they have the cap to absorb Callahan's contract. Libnor Hajek is compensation for taking Callahan's contract

Tampa: Dumps Callahan and gets an elite LW to create the best line in the NHL of 3 potential 40 + goal scorers Kane-Stamkos-Kucherov

Montreal:1st rd 2019 and 2nd rd 2018

Buffalo:Sam Rienhart

Montreal- takes a chance on a struggling player with lots of potential on pace for 23 points.

Buffalo- gets back a nice haul for a player who wasn't fitting in their system.

The Tampa one is fair, other is bad for Montreal because I expect them to suck next year.

Tampa already has the best line in the league Namestnikov-Stamkos-Kucherov. Kane is in the last year of his deal. I wouldn't be willing to give up a first second and top prospect for a half season of Kane. I've already made my opinion of giving good assets to dump callahan know. Not worth it they don't need the space that bad.

My thoughts on the Montreal trade is that they retool this year and draft a top prospect. Rienhart will help them for a playoff push next year and has 1st line potential. As for the Tampa trade Kane is an HUGE upgrade on Namestankov and the picks are late.

Still wouldn't do it even if picks are late. Bot going to put myself in a position to not draft till the 3rd round for a rental. Namestnikov plays his best when with these two better than anyone else they tried not even close. It is not a huge upgrade with how he's playing look at the numbers not to mention Kanes off the ice issues.

Also Kane has only topped 40 points twice in the past 6 years and barely and were calling him a 40 goal guy and huge upgrade over Namestnikov? i'm terms of offensive production they aren't that far off and Namestnikov never really got a chance in top 6 till now players like him get about a first at the deadline. Not a first second and top prospect and like i said dumping callahan contract not worth the additional second and Hajek.

Kane might be the better player in an isolated world, but Namestnikov has great chemistry with Kuch and Stamkos. No one guarantees Kane will come close to that.
I agree, it's too much too give up for half a year of Kane. If they could somehow make a sign and trade with a reasonable contract for Kane (which I doubt), I might change my opinion, tho.
