<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Eli</b></div><div>That makes sense. I think between Gus and Crow leaving, they can afford DeBrincat, and make little moves to work out the rest. If they stay close to a wild card spot much longer, they'll end up overpaying at the deadline for an LHD who can play top pair this year.

If you wanted to offer different prospects, start with forwards, then RHD, then G, then LHD? I just clicked Boqvist really quick because I noticed his stats kept him in the "futures" category, and I want to give some credit to the scouts who thought he could go 2nd overall. Even if they send him to the ECHL this year and move him up to the AHL next year, if he eventually puts together that level of a skill game, he could help the Caps a lot, three and four years out.</div></div>

Debrincat's already signed. $6.3M for 3 years. It's a really good deal for both him and the team. It's not a crazy cap hit by any stretch for a 40 goal scorer and his next contract will need to be $9M for a qualifying offer. We'll see what happens in 3 years. That part may come back to bite Stan, but we'll see. It's Strome and a #1 goalie they need to worry about for next year. Boqvist won't ever see the ECHL. The single and only reason he was sent back to the AHL yesterday was because Connor Murphy is coming off IR and Boqvist can be moved freely up/down. Hawks have a log jam at defense would need to waive anyone else. I also think Gus will get traded at some point and then we'll see Boqvist back up.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Eli</b></div><div>Hawks fans are posting threads asking where the Hawks can add a #1 left shot defenseman so that Keith can play 2nd pair. Orlov is the best potentially available option: <a href="http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?aggregate=1&amp;report=skaterpoints&amp;reportType=season&amp;seasonFrom=20152016&amp;seasonTo=20182019&amp;gameType=2&amp;leftyOrRighty=L&amp;position=D&amp;filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&amp;sort=evPoints,points" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?aggregate=1&amp;report=skaterpoints&amp;reportType=season&amp;seasonFrom=20152016&amp;seasonTo=20182019&amp;gameType=2&amp;leftyOrRighty=L&amp;position=D&amp;filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&amp;sort=evPoints,points</a>


Boqvist was a top ten pick, but he fell relative to predictions, which is sometimes a sign of a bust. He has one point in six games in the NHL, and the same in the AHL right now. That's hardly making him look untradeable. He can help Hershey make the playoffs, and maybe the Caps give him a look next year or the year after, if he earns it. The Caps could win this trade in five years, but this year it makes Chicago a contender, while Crawford, Toews, and Keith can still contribute.

First of all, thank you! I'm not perfect. I try to be fair. I try to write win-win deals. If I'm winning some and losing some, then at least I'm trying to be fair, even if we have different ideas of what players are worth.

Vejdemo is off to a good start and showing steady improvement as a pro. Juulsen has shown he can play in the NHL but he has to come back from an eye injury. Orlov has more even strength points over the last four years than Weber or Petry because he stays healthy. If Weber, Petry, and a couple forwards get hurt, the Habs could still finish out of the playoffs, and that 45th pick could turn out to be better than Adam Boqvist who has one point in six games in each of the NHL and the AHL, career. But I went into detail about the Hawks, above.

The Caps lose all of these trades, short term. So the question is which ones keep them in contention for a longer window, and which ones are just flat-out bad.</div></div>

In what Metric did Boqvist fall?!?! It's actually VERY much the opposite. He fell in the draft because teams had concern about his ability to play on smaller ice. He's 100% proved that to be false. You clearly haven't watched the games...and that's OK, but he's look really good. You're basing an entire career on a kids 1st 6 games in the NHL and by the way...here's his prospect rankings...

Orlov is a nice player, but he doesn't solve the Hawks problems. It's been well reported that the scheme JC was trying to implement at the beginning of the season wasn't working...so they changed. And what do you know...7 points in their last 4 games against playoff teams too. Easier said that done to keep it going though.
