Don't know enough about Carrier. Hard to imagine NSH adding a C though, especially carrying a big (yet fair) cap hit.
I really doubt ANA accepts. IMO Vatanen > JVR. Not sure Kapanen is the type of player (good ceiling but far away/can't help today or even tomorrow) )ANA needs.</i></div></div>
My measuring stick for the ANA trade was Milan Lucic for Martin Jones, 1st round pick, and Colin Miller. JVR is comparable, and has a very good contract. By including a defenceman that could play for them now, and a top prospect, I believe one of Lindholm or Vatanen would be available. Vatanen is a RD which fits a bigger need for the Leafs, but I do like Lindholm more.
Re Bozak to NSH. They are loosing Gaustad, and Bozak fits that faceoff winning, semi productive and responsible player. Carrier is a bluechip defensive prospect, puck moving.
