    Default Guessing Game - Who gets traded next?

    Based on Jon Rosen's very scathing but honest article concerning our 31st place team, I created this thread to start the guessing game of what player(s) will be traded next in the inevitable (and overdue) "Rob Blake Garage/Fire sale".

    My guess is: Clifford, Amart, Muzzin

    What player(s) do you think will be the next to go?

    Muzzin and Carter both should have been traded in the summer of 2017, so they should both go next.

    Toffoli is likely as well.

    Highly doubt that Clifford and Martinez are dealt, but it's not impossible.

    Jeff Carter would or should be a massive kick to the nuts to everyone else in the room.

    I'm sure Blake will do something stupid like Carter + 1st round pick for _____. Which in turn would take us out of the LoseForHughes sweepstakes immediately.

    The best time to trade most of these "assets" had sunset over the summer.

    Now their value has greatly diminished due to on-ice performance (or lack thereof) and the teams position in the standings. Blake has no position of strength when dealing players at this point.

    Front office leadership and experience for this team is extremely lacking.

    What a mess.

    YES but with Kempe playing well and Vilardi on the horizon it may work out for the best

    I still think Quick may well be moved 1st to either the Flyers or Islanders

    Value doesn't diminish over a couple of months. Most GMs aren't as short-sighted as fans and can appreciate this situation. Doesn't mean Blake won't be low-balled early, but by starting the process now instead of closer to the deadline he can give himself time to find better deals.

    Carter and Muzzin are probably the top candidates, with AMart close behind. Quick will be tough to trade, although he should be.

    Quick's contract is not attractive...but you never know what other teams would do.

    You think the tandum of Jack Campbell and/or Cal Peterson can get the job done? Peterson has played pretty solid over the small sampling of NHL games played.

    Depends on the job. Make the playoffs? Probably not. Grow organically with younger teammates while forging a new identity and sense of "team"? Sure.
