    Only if they sign the Easter Bunny as backup goalie.

    Would I want Tavares here? I mean, hell yes! Do I think it's remotely plausible that it would actually happen now that the NYI finally have good management and ownership after forever? Not a chance. It's several cuts below the "Will Stamkos sign in Toronto?" level speculation.

    Fair enough and point taken.

    Given the fact that Karlsson will be a UFA in a short time, I don’t think that trading for him (relatively speaking) will be *too* difficult.

    Given Karlsson’s UFA status in a short time, I would argue that trading for Karlsson would have a similar level of a difficulty to that of trading for Hanifin.

    I would NOT give up 7th overall + Virtanen + ??? For Hanifin.

    I WOULD give up 7th overall + Virtanen + ??? for Karlsson provided that the “???” was not one of Boeser, Horvat, or Pettersson.

    To be conservative, let’s just say that the following package gets your Karlsson:

    2018 1st, 2019 1st, Virtanen, and Gaudette.

    You make this trade before July 1st.

    This shows a guy like Tavares that you’re serious about winning now. You then offer Tavares the McDavid deal. Or something even slightly more.....for 91 million over 7 years (13 million per).

    Baertschi-Tavares-Boeser
    Dahlen-Horvat-Pettersson
    Leipsic-Gagner-Goldobin
    Gaunce-Sutter-Eriksson (4th line gets replaced by a much cheaper 4th line in a few years).

    Edler-Eriksson
    Juolevi-Tanev
    Pouliot-Gudbranson

    Markstrom
    Demko

    At the end of 2018, if Tanev has a healthy season, you can recoup one of the lost first round picks from the Karlsson trade by trading Tanev for a lower 1st round pick.

    Meh - none of this will happen but a man can dream.

    @skyo - I dedicate this post you!
