Honestly I'd just try for the Pittsburgh trade, some of those signings seem a little odd, e.g. the Blueger for 6 years deal.  Lafferty's probably not worth that much and I doubt Cole takes a paycut when he's very much still a top-4 D.

Don't hate the trades, they're all quite realistic. The Smith for Mikheyev deal is certainly possible, would suck giving up so many futures on the whole, especially McDonough but I get it. I don't think Lafferty deserves that much, he's really cooled off lately after a hot start playing with Petey so 1M should be enough for him. Hopefully we can keep Blueger and Joshua for under 3M. Truscott can certainly go do one so worth sending him over but that seems like a bit much for Tanev where I think a 1st alone is enough, unless we swap the first for a 2nd (plus all the rest).

Big Wouters fan so you get a +. 


Think maybe youve been aspirating Kessels cup though.  


Cole is a no from me dawg. 


Lafferty 6 years had me in stitches. It's a lot of long ass term for bottom 6ers and 5/6 D. These are the types of deals that tie a GM's hands to be able to re tool the roster and jump on opportunities. Rosters get stale over time.
