WHAT IF MONTREAL CANADIENS SIGN TAYLOR HALL

 Taylor Hall is going to be one of the top free agents in 2020 and the Montreal Canadiens are one of the teams that are rumored to be after him. The Thing is that Montreal already has Tomas Tatar and Jonathan Drouin at LW, why would they need Taylor Hall? Well to put is simply, the Canadiens lack a star forward and Taylor Hall would provide that star power up front.


If the Canadiens do end up signing Taylor Hall, the Canadiens would need to trade either one of those two players to address other needs on the roster.

Before the 2020 draft, the Canadiens make a few trades:

Montreal Canadiens trade Tomas Tatar, Max Domi to the Nashville Predators for Eeli Tolvanen, 1st round pick 2020.

Nashville Needs skilled wingers with Mikael Granlund and Craig Smith leaving in Free Agency, so adding Tatar and Domi will more than fill that void. For Montreal, the get a young forward in Tolvanen and a 1st round pick.

Montreal also trades Jeff Petry, Jonathan Drouin, Ryan Poehling, 1st round pick 2021 to the Carolina Hurricanes for Dougie Hamilton, Ryan Suzuki.

The Canadiens really need to sure up their defense and Dougie Hamilton is just what the Doctor ordered, so even if Weber is injured, they have a reliable number 1 defenseman. On the other side of the trade, the Canes get a top 4 defenseman in Jeff Petry, a top 6 forward in Jonathan Drouin, a potential top 6 forward in Ryan Poehling and a 1st round pick.

Paul Byron, Victor Mete are dealt to the Detroit Red Wings for Dmytro Timashov, 3rd round pick 2020.

Victor Mete and Paul Byron don't really fit with the Canadiens anymore but they will be really useful on a Red Wings team in need of any help they can get.


At the 2020 draft, Montreal trades picks 47, 48, 64, 77 San Jose Sharks for pick 31

2020 Draft results:

11 (from NSH)-Braden Schneider

15-Dylan Holloway

31 (from SJ)-Brendan Brisson

Montreal drafts a top 4 defenseman in Braden Schneider and a solid a top 6 center in Brendan Brisson.


In Free Agency, Montreal Canadiens sign Taylor Hall to a 7 yr deal worth 10.5 million per season.

Taylor Hall gives the Canadiens a true star forward, something they haven't had in a long time, the contract isn't ideal but that's what the market is for a player of his caliber.


Montreal Canadiens sign Evgenii Dadonov to a 5 yr deal worth 6 million per season.

Dadonov gives the Canadiens another highly skilled forward to play in the top 6 and help out the powerplay.

Montreal signs Radko Gudas to a 3 yr deal worth 3.25 million per season.

Radko Gudas gives the Canadiens more toughness on the backend and makes a great third pair defenseman.

Mattias Janmark, Trevor Lewis, Tomas Nosek to 2 yr deals worth 1.5 million per season per season.

Janmark, Lewis and Nosek would form the newly constructed 4th line for the Canadiens and they could all play a huge role come playoff time.


The Montreal Canadiens make it to the Conference finals in the 2020-21 season but they lose to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 6 games.


Before the expansion draft, Montreal makes one trade:

Montreal Canadiens trade Phillip Danault, Artturi Lehkonen, Ben Chiarot to the Florida Panthers for Owen Tippett, Lucas Wallmark, 3rd round pick 2021.

With this trade, the Panthers address a need at Center, Left wing and Left D, which should help them moving forward; for the Canadiens, they get Owen Tippett a very talented scoring winger, Lucas Wallmark, a 3rd line center and a 3rd round pick.


Montreal Canadiens lose Eeli Tolvanen to the Seattle Kraken in the expansion draft.


Before the 2021 draft, two trade are made:

Brendan Gallagher is traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for 1st round pick 2021 in a sign and trade.

The Canadiens already have more talented wingers locked up and more talented wingers coming up so Gallagher is dealt for a 1st round pick.

Shea Weber is traded to the Anaheim Ducks for 2nd round pick 2022, 3rd round pick 2023. If Anaheim Makes the playoffs, 2nd round pick becomes a 1st round pick.

The Ducks get a veteran defenseman that completes the top 4, while the Canadiens get to dump Webers salary and get some picks out of it.


At the 2021 draft, Montreal trades picks 60, 77, 92 to the Dallas Stars for pick 48

2021 draft results:

19 (from CBJ)-Fabian Lysell

48-Graham Sward

The Canadiens draft Fabian Lysell a very skilled and talented swedish winger and Graham Sward, a solid defenseman, to add to their already stacked prospect pool.


Montreal Canadiens buyout Karl Alzner because they need the cap space to re-sign some players.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi is re-signed to 5 yr deal worth 5.2 million per season, Lucas Wallmark is re-signed to a 3 yr deal worth 2.5 million per season.

Canadiens don't re-sign Jake Allen because Cayden Primeau should be NHL ready by the 2021-22 season.

All other RFAs are re-signed by the Montreal Canadiens.

The Montreal Canadiens take a step back in the 2021-22 season and lose in the second round of the playoffs to the New York Rangers.

The Anaheim Ducks did make the playoffs in the 2021-22 season, so the Canadiens get their 2022 first round pick.


Before the 2022 draft, Montreal Canadiens make one trade:

Montreal Canadiens trade Evgenii Dadonov to the Calgary Flames for 1st round pick 2022.

The Flames need a skilled winger to play in their top 6 and Dadonov fits that bill; on the other side of the trade, Montreal gets a 1st round pick.


At the 2022 draft, Montreal trades picks 13, 18, 22 to the Florida Panthers for pick 5.

2022 draft results:

5-Rutger McGroarty

Montreal lands a very dynamic goal scoring center in Rutger McGroarty adding to their very talented young core.


Montreal Canadiens re-sign Nick Suzuki to a 6 yr deal worth 5.5 million per season.

Alexander Romanov is re-signed to a 3 yr deal worth 3.5 million per season, Owen Tippett is re-signed to a 2 yr deal worth 2.75 million per season.

All other RFAs are re-signed by the Montreal Canadiens.


Montreal Canadiens sign Scott Mayfield to a 4 yr deal worth 2 million per season.

Mayfield gives the Canadiens a veteran third pair defenseman that plays physical and can kill penalties.


By the 2023-24 season, the Montreal Canadiens have built a very dangerous contending team.


2023-24 Montreal Canadiens:

T.Hall-J.Kotkaniemi-C.Caufield

F.Lysell-R.McGroarty-N.Suzuki

D.Holloway-Br.Brisson-O.Tippett

T.Timoshov-L.Wallmark-R.Suzuki

A.Romanov-D.Hamilton

J.Edmundson-B.Schneider

G.Sward-S.Mayfield

C.Price

C.Primeau

WHAT IF SAN JOSE SHARKS DO A FULL REBUILD

 The San Jose Sharks aren't good enough to make the playoffs, yet are too good to be a lottery team when everyone is healthy, so I think the best thing for the Sharks to do is to do a full on rebuild.

This rebuild would see the Sharks trade everyone except for three players: Timo Meier, Tomas Hertl, Erik Karlsson.


Before the 2020 draft, the Sharks make a couple trades:

San Jose Sharks trade Evander Kane to the Florida Panthers for Frank Vatrano, Henrik Borgstrom, 2nd round pick 2020.

The Florida Panthers get a top 6 winger in Evander Kane, which is important because both Dadonov and Hoffman are UFA's, while the Sharks get a solid 3rd line winger in Frank Vatrano, a prospect center in Henrik Borgstrom and a 2nd round pick.

The Sharks also trade Brent Burns to the Ottawa Senators for Alex Formenton, Logan Brown, Artem Zub, 1st round pick 2020.

The Ottawa Senators get a star defenseman in Brent Burns, which really bolsters their blueline, while the Sharks get two top forward prospects in Formenton and Brown, a mid level defensive prospect in Artem Zub and a 1st round pick.

Logan Couture is traded to the Montreal Canadiens for Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Max Domi, Victor Mete, 1st round pick 2022.

The Montreal Canadiens get the number 1 center that they have been looking for in Logan Couture, while the Sharks get 3 really solid players in Kotkaniemi, Domi and Mete as well as a future 1st round pick.

Marc Edouard Vlasic, Kevan Lebanc get dealt to the Colorado Avalanche for Ryan Graves, Valeri Nichushkin, 2nd round pick 2021. If the Avalanche reach the conference finals, the 2nd round pick becomes a 1st round pick.

Marc Edouard Vlasic had a down year but he still has value, if he is being used in the right situation; he would be the ideal d partner for Cale Makar. On the other hand, the Sharks get a very underrated defenseman in Ryan Graves, a solid top 9 forward in Valeri Nichushkin, and a 2nd round pick which could become a 1st round pick.


2020 Draft results:

28 (from OTT)-William Wallinder

31-Ryan O'Rourke

34-Lukas Reichel

43-William Dufour

54-Luke Evangelista

The San Jose Sharks draft two top notch defenseman in Wallinder and O'Rourke and three really solid forwards in Reichel, Dufour and Evangelista.

All other RFAs are re-signed by the Sharks


The San Jose Sharks finish the 2020-21 season with the 3rd worst record in the league but end up sliding down to the 5th pick in the draft.

The Sharks lose Victor Mete to the Seattle Kraken in the Expansion draft.


Colorado made the conference finals in the 2020-21 season, which means that San Jose gets their 1st round in 2021.

At the 2021, San Jose Sharks trade pick 31 to the Ottawa Senators for picks 38, 51.

2021 draft results:

5-Matthew Beniers

38 (from OTT)-Sebastian Cossa

51 (from OTT)-Jake Chiasson

The Sharks draft a stud center in Matthew Beniers, their future starter in Sebastian Cossa and a solid scorer in Jake Chiasson.


San Jose Sharks re-sign Jesperi Kotkaniemi to a 3 yr deal worth 4.5 million per season

Artem Zub is re-signed to a 2 yr deal worth 2.75 million per season

All other RFAs are re-signed by the Sharks

12-Issac Howard

Jason Dickinson, Riley Tufte are re-signed to 2 yr deals

All other RFAs are re-signed by the Sharks


The San Jose Sharks make the playoffs in the 2022-23 season but lose in the second round of the playoffs.


Before the 2023 draft, one trade is made:

San Jose Sharks trade Martin Jones to the Calgary Flames for 2nd round pick 2023, 3rd round pick 2023.

This is a win-win trade for both teams because this trade opens up the starting job for Sebastian Cossa on the Sharks and Martin Jones would be going to Calgary team that really needs a starting goalie.

2023 draft results:

8 (from FLA) Colby Barlow

The San Jose Sharks yet another impact forward in Colby Barlow, which makes them very dangerous down the road.

W.Wallinder-R.Merkley

R.Graves-A.Zub

S.Cossa

A.Dell

Top Prospects:

C.Barlow, L.Evangelista, J.Chiasson, R.Tufte
