How Arizona Coyotes can turn into a Contender by Draft

 The Arizona Coyotes have done a great job of Stockpiling a ton of draft picks in the next couple of drafts. If they can hit on their draft picks in the next two-three drafts, they can become a contender in no time. This is how the Arizona Coyotes should draft in the next couple years. Before the 2022 Draft, two trades are made Arizona Coyotes trade Phil Kessel, Anton Stralman to the Minnesota Wild for Nick Bjugstad, 2022 4th round pick. If Phil Kessel re-signs with Minnesota, the Coyotes get an additional 2024 3rd round pick. The Coyotes Get something in return for Phil Kessel and Anton Stralman, rather than lose him for nothing. Arizona Coyotes trade Jakob Chychurun to the Florida Panthers for Anton Lundell, Mason Marchment, Grigori Denisenko and a 2023 1st round pick.

If they draft correctly with those picks, they could use those picks to become a contender in no time. This is how I would draft for the Seattle Kraken in the next two drafts.

What New York Rangers Should do at the Trade Deadline

 The New York Rangers are in win-now mode, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Rangers be very active at the Trade Deadline. Here are some moves that the New York Rangers should make at the Deadline. Trades: New York Rangers trade Filip Chytil, Vitaly Kravtsov, Nils Lundkvist, 2023 1st round pick to the Vancouver Canucks for JT Miller. If the Rangers make the Conference Finals, the Canucks get an additional 2024 2nd round pick. The acquisition of JT Miller vastly improves the Rangers' top-end talent and overall depth; it also makes the Rangers a legit threat in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers also trade Ryan Strome, Julien Gauthier, Johnny Brodzinski to the Seattle Kraken for Morgan Geekie, Colin Blackwell, Riley Sheahan, 2022 2nd round pick. If Ryan Strome re-signs with Seattle, the Rangers get a future 3rd round pick in 2023 or 2024. This trade helps the Rangers address two issues: Ryan Strome's uncertain with the team and it also helps add more depth for the pla

What LA Kings should do at the Trade Deadline

  The LA Kings currently sit in 2nd place in the Pacific Division, but they need to improve their team if they want to remain a contender. The Good thing is that LA already has the key pieces in place, now its just a matter of improving the supporting cast. This is what the LA Kings should do at the Trade Deadline. Trades: LA Kings acquire Phil Kessel from the Arizona Coyotes for Andreas Athanasiou, 2022 3rd round pick. Phil Kessel gives the LA Kings a veteran top 6 winger with Stanley Cup Pedigree, which drastically improves their scoring depth. LA Kings acquire Nick Leddy from the Detroit Red Wings for Gabriel Vilardi, 2022 1st round pick. The Kings get Nick Leddy, a top 4 defenseman with playoff experience to pair alongside Drew Doughty. LA Kings also acquire Jake DeBrusk from the Boston Bruins for Jaret-Andrson Dolan, 2023 3rd round pick. If the Kings make the 2nd round of the playoffs, the 3rd round pick becomes a 2nd round pick. Jake DeBrusk can give LA solid secondary scoring an

What Edmonton Oilers should do at the Trade Deadline

 The Edmonton Oilers must improve their team at the trade deadline if they are to be a legit contender in the playoffs. This is what the Edmonton Oilers should do at the trade deadline. Trades: Edmonton Oilers acquire Marc-Andre Fleury, Dylan Strome from the Chicago Blackhawks for Mikko Koiskinen, Kailer Yamamoto, Xavier Bourgalt, and a 2023 2nd round pick.  If the Oilers make the Conference Finals, the 2nd round pick become a 1st round pick. Chicago retains 25% of Marc-Andre Fleury's Cap Hit. The Oilers Get a proven veteran goalie in Marc Andre Fleury and Dylan Strome, who could serve as a valuable 3rd line player; on the flip side the Blackhawks get Mikko Koiskinen, Kailer Yamamoto, a young prospect Xavier Bourgalt and a conditional 2nd round pick, which could turn into a 1st. Zack Kassian is traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a 2022 3rd round pick. Kassian doesn't really fit into the team anymore, so he is traded to the Blue Jackets for a draft pick.
