So Hanifin for Montour one for one?
That is actually pretty close.
I am not sure what needs to be added to square that deal.
It balances our LHD with RHD.
At this point I think Bennett has more potential but Johansson is the better of the two right now. So I do not know if I like that part of the deal.
Let me add, if Buffalo could sign Hoffman and swap Montour for Hanifin, the Sabres would be much better than this years team.
I also like not trading away the 8OA pick.
Buffalo finally has some actual NHL prospects, I like the idea that you are not trading any futures away.
Lastly, last year's team would have been in the preliminaries if Hutton did not go blind, or Skinner does not implode, or if the PK did not self destruct, or if Rodrigues and Sheary had career bad years, or the PP just disappear, or if Krueger knew how to put together an NHL line up.
So last year's team was close, if not for many unforeseen disasters.
Philly probably takes that, although I think its a slight underpayment on their behalf, maybe a 2nd instead of a 3rd or a high ceiling mid level prospect added.
Philly needs a RD, Ghost is not the right fit in Philly, and its been to his detriment that Provorov, Sanheim, Hagg and Myers all developed at same time. I think its not a huge downgrade from Risto to Ghost. Risto will either sink or swim going forward and while theres an age difference, the contract difference would be huge at renewal. Both are number 3 dmen, not number 1s.
Philly doesn't need to move Ghost, so theres no point in trading him for an underpayment. Theres also expansion coming and its really down to what either team will protect. PHI will protect Sanheim, provorov and myers likely, whereas BUF will have McCabe expiring and likely getting close to Ghost monies and could protect Dahlin, Montour and Ghost.
