<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>I would think the Sens jump on that trade. Namestikov with his expiring contract can be traded at TDL. Strome...he's certainly serviceable for a year, and Smith servicable for two years.
Anisinov certainly isn't anything special. At this point is much better than Strome?</div></div>

There is really one cap dump here.. smith.

Namestnikov is a bit overpayed yes, but is hardly a cap dump. Responsible player in all three zones that plays all three forward positions (and has had success in expanded roles, albeit that was on Tampa with Stammer and Kuch) is exactly the kind of reclamation project that is attractive to Ottawa. He's only signed for one more year and if he does have a mini break out type year, they'll potentially get more than a 4th rounder for him at the deadline. If he doesn't, they could retain 2m and get a 4th rounder for him at the deadline so it's really a wash.

In terms of strome, I wouldn't want to get rid of him for Anisimov. I think strome will have a better year. A fair deal would be a 4th for Nams and Smith (they can buy out smith for a limited price for penny pinching melnyk)


that's a very good forward group, possibly switch andersson and howden as i think andersson will come into training camp with a mission.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Old_Snowman</b></div><div>Everyone's freaking out because Miller is a top notch D prospect....but the Rangers are swimming in those. They have Miller, Lundkvist and Fox. They also have Trouba and Skjei. That's 5 x top four defensemen. Not including Shattenkirk. Where do they all fit?

Detroit has lots of good D prospects but Miller or Lundkvist would be a great add to Seider, McIssac, Hronek, and Cholowski. I'd be happy with either.

Namestnikov, Smith, and (Miller or Lundkvist) for a 2nd round pick. NY's cap problems disappear to sign Trouba and Buch and Detroit gets a young prospect. They let Namestnikov walk as a UFA and can eat Smith's salary next year when Ericsson and Daley are off the books. I'm sure Detroit fans would flip at the though of Smith returning but it'd be worth it if Miller of Lundkvist comes in. All hinging on Smith waiving that NTC to Detroit.</div></div>

Fox, Lundkvist and Trouba are all right handed. Yes we have quality depth with Hajek, Lindgren, Reunanen and Day. but odds are is only one of them will end up being a good defenseman in the NHL, maybe none. Miller is the only LHD prospect that has top pairing potential. Yes we have Skjei, but he's not a true top line defenseman. I'd rather have a top 4 of Trouba, Fox, Skjei and Miller, we don't lose control of lundkvist until 2022. We could sign him to his entry level deal just before then to maximize the time to control him. We will need the cheap depth as Kravtsov, Kakko, Fox and Zibanejad all need new deals that offseason
