OFFSEASON TRADE BLOCK
1. Adam Henrique $4,368,750 x 2
Ask: 2nd round pick/equivalent
Henrique is a top 6 center on a young up and coming team. He is on a 25G 60PTS pace this season and retained to $4,368,750 could be a great top 6 player for your team.
2. Jonathan Drouin $2,750,000 x 1 (2023 UFA)
Ask: 2nd round pick/3rd round pick+
Drouin was on pace for 50 points this year and likely would have hit that with MSL and a healthy season. He will be back for training camp and would slot in nicely into most team's middle six. I will retain $2,750,000 on his contract and with a 3rd team could be retained to $1,375,000.
3. Cody Ceci $3,250,00 x 3
Ask: 3rd round pick/equivalent
Ceci may be viewed as a pylon but he is not. In the second half of this season he's proved that he's a legitimate top 4 RD, with GS's around 1.2 every period lately. If cap space is a worry I'll take a dump to make it work, ask will rise in that case though depending on the dump.
4. Brendan Gallagher $6,500,000 x 5
Ask: Nothing set in stone
Gally seems to have found his game again lately and I think it's likely he bounces back from a 5% shooting percentage. Similar to Ceci, I'll take a big dump to make the cap work.
