Ott : 4th overall, 3rd round pick
Mon : 3rd overall

Montreal drops by 1 overall but still gets the center they are after in tkachuck while adding a 3rd rounder

Ottawa gains 1 overall to guarentee they get the goal scorer they need

Neither team needs to worry about former players being in same division as no actual players were involved when trade is made

Keep in mind rumors of tkechuck to Montreal regardless if this done or not so massive overpayments you all like won't apply here.

The difference between 3 and 4 is greater than a 3rd round pick. There’s a drop off after 3.

Tkachuk is not a center. Central scouting may have him listed as a center but he is not a center.

Said he’s capable of playing center. But, if they are looking for a center then they should go for Kotkaniemi.

Either way tkechuck value has gone up and if montreal is targeting a center or someone who can play center or a defenceman like real rumors imply then why not move down 1 and gain a pick on top of that?

Xcing when you become an anylist employed by nhl or the sports network your opinion on a picks worth might mean something but for now I think I'll STICK WITH the experts opinions and my own.
Truth is the drop is after 4 now as tkechuck value has rissen in recent days and he's being billed as top 3 now just like svechnikov and zadina making any of the 3 top 3 quality. so is there that much of a difference between 3 and 4 really? NO there isn't and that favours ottawa because no matter who goes 2 and 3 they will be fine either way bit Montreal could use it as a chance to gain a 3rd rounder and still get the guy they want as I'm sure ottawa would prefer svechnikov or zadina anyway.

If the habs trade down, they would trade down to get a natural center and have a higher return for the difference in the pick. I don't think it would be worth going down 1 spot for a 3rd round pick and still end up with a winger.
If the habs are going to pick Tkachuk, why would the sens give up a pick for no reason if that is actually what they think is going to happen.

Depends how ottawa value zadina compared to other prospects if they value him a lot then I see them adding something more then a 3rd yo get the trade done a 2nd would be good and I don't think montreal are high on zadina not because of potential or skills but because he is a winger and a sniper

If montreal want Tkachuk and Ottawa zadina then something like this would be good.

3OVA, 4th round pick.

for 4OVA, 2nd round.

As a montreal fan that's what I would want but idk if ottawa would do this.

Rambo are you saying that you're employed as an NHL analyst or that you think your opinion is as valuable but others arent? If you are so sure of your valuation and don't want criticism or debate why are you posting?

Jbs32 I'm not saying I'm an anylist at all. I'm saying that the rumors they talk about at least are realistic and believable and totally unbiased and usually the results are pretty close to what they predict. the posts on here are nowhere close to what they talk about especially when it comes to ottawa players and if anyone on here had projections close to the anylists projections, mine would be the closest by far followed by maybe 2 others I've seen but haven't posted in a while.

Example is Hoffman. they say he's 3rd most valuable asset on trade block right now and the big rumor is straight up for either the 7th overall from Vancouver or nuge from Edmonton and I sad he's worth top 5 to 10 pick y'all say bottom 15 which isn't even close for him.

I want to see theses "rumors" Saying he is worth the 7th OVA. Also if you think nuge is worth equal to that pick you are extremely high on a good 2nd line center but in this day and age Hoffman is more likely to get you a late first with a good prospect and a body. He's a good player but 7th OVA gets you more then one good player.

CTC55 again you're wrong. Hoffman is a perennial 20 goal scorer pushing 30 goals and 60 point better on what can be deemed a very low end offensive team. on top of that he just turned 28 putting him in the prime years of his career. put him with a superstar linemate like mcdavid or tavares and he's easily good for a point per game. you don't trade a player like that with a below 5 million contract for another year or 2 for a mid to late first or later as they only have a 50% chance or less of even making the nhl. a player like that guarentees you a top 5 to 10 pick if you're any kind've good gm. And opposing gsm with those picks that need goal scoring would be silly not to go for him. he's a sure bet. the pick might make the nhl, sure but not necessarily a shoe in for top 6 or top 4 like Hoffman is. some become major busts. just look at yakapov or pajarvi or even Kyle beach. it's common sense dude.

Oh and if you want to see these rumors go look at tsn. com.

1) his contract has him at an AAV of 5.3 Million so its over 5
2)He is a good player but his PPG is an average of 0.72 (good but no superstar)
3)He's actually turning 29
He is a good player but with only 4 years of being in the NHL (played a total of 29 before 2014-2015), never braking 30 goals and this years draft being deemed deep I find it any team in the top 10 trading there first for him it's hard to see any scoring winger get a top 10 pick alone in this draft.

Also just looked at TSN it says nothing about Hoffman and the 7th OVA. They do talk about Hanifin for the 7th OVA.

I just looked at it again it is there ctc55

And just saw your post mtl4life that's fair I'd be ok with that if it happened.
