Montreal :
3rd round pick 2019

Dallas :
J Spezza
R Hintz
9th ovr pick

Yes there is a lot going to montreal but they take on spezza's contract. I know that the draft is in Dallas but I think this could be a good move for the stars because they would have the cap space to sign someone like Statsny/Maroon/Grabner afterwards.

It's a good trade not going to lie but spezza won't go to a Canadian team.

the asking price for pacioretty was crazy high from bergevin apparently he asked for vilardi and 1st from La Kings which is basically a top 10 pick plus another mid 1st rounder so idk if he will settle on this.

I would t do it if I’m Dallas. My feelings on pacioretty are well established on this site lol but he’s a real good player, not a great player. He’s a 4th or 5th best on a great team and that’s not what I would be trading a top 10 pick for. Devils traded 9th overall for Schneider who was a star for them for a few years after in the most important individual position, not a winger with 1 year left before a big raises, pushing 30 years old and coming off an atrocious season. And that 9th became Bo Horvat. In a pretty deep draft again, I wouldn’t wanna miss on a prospect like that for a year of a winger who would be behind seguin, Benn, Klingberg, and radulov as most important/ impactful on the team.

I get your point but I think that getting spezza's contract off the books is already worth a lot, more than Hintz alone. So I think Patches and the 9th balance the trade.

It’s almost guaranteed for 1 year because seguins contract is up the same time as Patches. So he’s getting paid 10 mill probably and then patches will want 6.5-7 probably. Don’t see it happening and I’d keep the top 10 pick. Should get a good player that could be playing for $850k the following year when seguins raise kicks in.

Doesn't Dallas pick 13th, not 9th? Or am I missing something? I thought the Rangers are at 9.

This is beyond terrible for Mtl
And they don’t need another old overpaid player.
