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

WHAT IF TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS SIGN ALEX PIETRANGELO

Alex Pietrangelo is one of the top free agents in 2020 and the Toronto Maple Leafs would really love to add a defenseman of his caliber, especially because he would be the perfect defenseman to pair with Morgan Rielly on the 1st pair. However, if the Maple Leafs are to sign Alex Pietrangelo, they need to clear more cap space because the Leafs only have a little over 6 million in cap space this year. Before free agency, a few trades are made: Toronto Maple Leafs trade Andreas Johnsson, Travis Dermott to the Detroit Red Wings for Tiro Hirose, Joe Hicketts, 2nd round pick 2021. The Red Wings get a top 6 forward in Andreas Johnsson and a top 4 defenseman in Travis Dermott, while the Maple Leafs get a top 9 forward in Tiro Hirose, a top 6 defenseman in Joe Hicketts and a 2nd round pick. Maple Leafs also trade William Nylander, Timothy Liljegren to the Vancouver Canucks for Tyler Toffoli, Tanner Pearson, 1st round pick 2021. Vancouver Canucks get a dynamic top 6 forward in William Nylander t

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 prosp

In the 2020 NHL Draft, the Ottawa Senators have the potential to build a the core of a contending team with the picks they have available to them. They have 3 picks in 1st round and 4 2nd round picks in 2020 draft, which will also them to draft some high impact prospects for the future. At the 2020 draft, the Ottawa Senators trade picks 51, 58 to the Nashville Predators for pick 37. 2020 Draft results: 3-Quinton Byfield  5-Lucas Raymond 28-William Wallinder 33-Ty Foerster 37-Lukas Reichel 59-Emil Andrae The Ottawa Senators a two blue chip prospects in Quinton Byfield and Lucas Raymond as well as 2 very good prospects in William Wallinder and Ty Foerster. Lukas Reichel and Emil Andrae may also be solid players down the line. After the Draft, a few trades are made Ottawa Senators trade Anthony Duclair, Chris Tierney, Connor Brown to the Edmonton Oilers for Adam Larsson, Andreas Athanasiou.
