Methot to Dallas
« on: June 26, 2017, 08:16:49 PM »
FriedgeHNIC: Not that @OvertimeScottB needs my confirmation, but Marc Methot is a Dallas Star. Awaiting return details.

FriedgeHNIC: LV gets a second in 2020 and G Dylan Ferguson from DAL for Methot.

That's it? And Ottawa wouldn't match that? Very surprising.

 Vegas certainly isn't playing hardball. That seems very reasonable and surprised that Ottawa didn't go after him.

Can Vegas just trade Colin Miller to us for a reasonable price?

It sounds like they're keeping him, which I guess makes sense since they picked so few righties.

I guess, but he carries a pretty hefty cap hit for what he does, no?

Vegas is sitting on: Schmidt, Theodore, Miller, Brannstrom, Hague, and to a lesser extent Reinhart. They've got some other garbage but those are either waivered or expired next year. I'm a bit jealous of that future backend.

I might disagree but there are teams out there that view him as a top-4 defenceman, like Ottawa. And surely now Dallas, I'd imagine they'll try playing him with Klingberg to see if he can have similar results with another free-wheeling Swedish defenceman. If they value him like that then $4.9mil for the next 2 seasons isn't absurd. I'd rather have that contract than Kris Russell's or Karl Alzner's next deal.
