I don't see why Nylander is in this trade.
Chicago announced they are committing to rebuild, so... wouldn't that make Nylander's age problematic? If a rebuild takes five years to regain contention status, Nylander will be 30 by then, with a career of disappointment and loss behind him. Not a recipe for success.
Also, not sure how De Haan fits.
He'd likely be 3rd on the Left Side, which only supplants Sandin's and Dermott's development path. Sorry, we need a stay-at-home top pairing right-handed defender... De Haan is not that.
Gabriel, Kurtis. is a 28-year-old minor league player. Curious!
Kubalik, Dominik. He is 6'+ but only 178lbs. he had a great start to his NHL career but has cooled significantly of late. He seems to be a defensive liability.
I can't like this deal either. I'm not a Holl fan, but I feel 2 million/per is the correct value for him. The problem is the coach keeps throwing Holl's 2million worth into a position that requires a 5 million player of value.
