TB- pacioretty
MTL-namestnikov, coburn, 1st round pick

Logic- namestikov has 35 points in 45 games this season and is a young winger which Montreal needs, coburn gives immediatel defensive depth and the 1st round pick won't be too good if it was a top 15 it wouldn't be worth it for Tampa I expect them to make 3rd round and with this trade win the cup, they would spread out the talent but power play line pacioretty-stamkos-kucherov.

But Tampas main weakness is defensive play and lose an every day guy in Coburn. Not to mention Namestnikov has a lot of chemistry with Stamkos and Kucherov. i'm not sure this actually makes Tampa better today as a team.

Tampa doesn't really have a weakness they got hedman and sutr for big defencemen.

Maybe habs can add a defender back in the deal like:

Pacioretty, Benn for Namestnikov, Coburn and 1st round pick.

Otherwise i like it but if D is a weakness than that would be enticing for Tampa.

You know Sustr sucks right. Like he's a terrible D man. Hedmans hurt and the reason they're on a skid is because their defence has been awful most the year and Vasi cooled off a bit. They have 2-3 legit top 4 D when everyone is healthy with Coburn as a guy that can step up.

Namestnikov has great chemistry with Stamkos and Kuch. Coburn and Girardi stabilize that D core. I don't think they risk this trade to bring in Pacioretty. Maybe a 1st and a prospect and then they don't break all what's clearly working up.

So yup do you think a 1st + Point ? Or a lower prospect

Flamers at this point Point isn't a prospect, he's a young established player. They don't add a fist to him for Patches. I wouldn't do point for Patches straight up right now tbh.

I would happily give a first Sustr and any prospect not named Foote Raddysh or Katchouk really. Howden borderline.

I think Point has more value that Nam because of position.
They are probably keeping both because of age. Would let go of guys like Johnsn, Palat, Killorn before they think of Point and Nam. Saying that, I don't think they are really interested in Patches as well. Unless one of Johnson kill or not palate are going the other way and I bet
Montreal has no interest in that. Remember, Yzerman is a magical wizard. Lol.
