Hard to fathom an expansion team trading their first rounder for Tatar?

We joke but Tatar's probably going to lead the league in scoring for the rest of the season. It is Vegas after all.

He'll win the Conn Smythe, for sure.-

Vegas picked up Tatar from Detroit.

EDIT: 1st, 2nd, 3rd!!!

JvR had better dominate in the playoffs.

Wow.

Let's talk about a trade that didn't happen:

http://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/flyers/flyers-balked-crazy-asking-price-trade-top-winger

Quote
According to sources, the Flyers kicked the tires on Ottawa winger Mike Hoffman, with the apparent asking price of defenseman Travis Sanheim and a first-round pick as a starting point. Needless to say, any negotiations or discussions didn’t advance much farther than that.

“It’s an emotional time for all of us and you’ve got to really think things through clearly,” Hextall said following Monday’s 3 p.m. deadline. “To do something because someone else did something, that’s not how I operate. We’re going to make well-thought-out decisions.”

Hextall may be willing to part with the pick considering the Flyers could have two first rounders in the upcoming draft depending on what happens with the St. Louis Blues, but the highly-coveted Sanheim is a deal breaker.

Sanheim used to be a pretty big deal as a prospect but he's turning 22 this month and still hasn't been able to crack a Philly defence that regularly plays Andrew MacDonald and somebody named Brandon Manning. I'm not saying he's a bust but he likely won't be an elite defenceman or anything. If he still has big-time value because of his former status as a 1st round draft pick then he's a guy I'd be looking to move if I'm Philly.

Hoffman sliding into Philly's 2LW spot behind Giroux would have been pretty amazing for that team. He and Stone are probably two of the most underrated wingers in the league. That would have been a fantastic trade for them I think.

And its not like Hoffman was a rental.  He's on a good contract for two more years.  That is in no way a crazy asking price and Philly probably should have done it.
