<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeautifulIdiot</b></div><div>I think that DiPietro still has value and from what I have heard, teams around the league would be interested on taking him on, I think the timing of this trade would be everything.
The reason why I disagree with your Lundqvist comp is because scoring defenders are worth so much more than stay at home guys, Lundqvist was a 1st rounder who would, if the 2018 draft was redone, might go in the mid teens, and for the security of having an NHL ready offensive defenceman, they paid the 4th.
I will take your input on grans but Dipietro still has value.
Dipietro, 2nd for grans and 4th</div></div>
How recent were the articles you were reading? I believe it was Dhaliwal that recently said (within the last week I believe) there was no interest in DiPietro, and Dhaliwal is a pretty well connected and respected insider. Unless DiPietro has a big bounce back season, which he won’t if his rights are still owned by Vancouver, then I don’t think he holds any value.
I agree that offensive defensemen are worth more than defensive defensemen, which is part of the reason I said Grans isn’t worth as much as Lundkvist… With that said, if we are talking redrafts and using that to determine current worth, Grans goes higher than his 35th overall position where he was selected.
I would be ecstatic if DiPietro and a 4th got Grans, but I don’t see it happening.
