Thought I’d have a go... Im more than likely well off the mark and probably have some over/under payments but i have tried to make it equitable for all involved.
· Pick 3
· Scott Hartnel – 4.75M
Calgary Take on $1.17M and pick 3 in the draft.
· Pick 5
· Rights to Wotherspoon - RFA
· Mikael Backlund - $3.57M
· Pick 56 – CGY
Columbus save $1.17M and gain pick 5 and pick 56.
· Pick 6 OA
· Boone Jenner - $2.9M
· Rights to Tyler Wotherspoon - RFA
· Pick 32 – CBJ
Vancouver take on 2.9M, the rights to Wotherspoon as well as pick 6 and 32 in the draft.
If Calgary can shed one of the contracts of Wideman/Raymond or have Smid go on LTIR or retire $1.17M shouldn’t be a lot of trouble to take on.
I can’t see Columbus having an issue with acquiring Backlund, pick 5 and pick 56 in exchange for pick3 and Calgary taking on a bad contract.
This is where it gets a bit sticky, it will be hard to convince Vancouver to (1) help Calgary move up in the draft, (2) Move down a spot in the draft and (3) have the ability to take on the 2.9M however they get compensated with 2 picks (6 & 32) and a young centre who put up 49 points in his 3rd year and the option of signing Wotherspoon.
