What Montreal Canadiens should do in the Offseason

The Montreal Canadiens had a disastrous season, but they can turn it around in the offseason, and build to be better next season. These are the moves that I would make if I were GM of the Montreal Canadiens. Before the 2022 Draft, a few trades are made Montreal Canadiens trade Jeff Petry to the Carolina Hurricanes for Ethan Bear, Ryan Suzuki, 1st round pick '23. The Hurricanes improve their defense with the addition of Jeff Petry, while the Canadiens get Ethan Bear, Ryan Suzuki, and a 1st round pick next year. The Canadiens also trade Jonathan Drouin, and Mike Hoffman to the LA Kings for Gabriel Vilardi, Jaret Anderson Dolan, 2nd round pick '22. The Kings get Jonathan Drouin and Mike Hoffman, two impact forwards, who will give an instant boost to the offense, while the Kings get two great prospects in Vilardi and Anderson-Dolan, as well as a 2nd round pick. Paul Byron and Joel Edmundsson are traded to the Edmonton Oilers for Kailer Yamamoto, 3rd round pick '23. Montreal ret

How Anaheim Ducks can build a Contending Team by Draft

 The Anaheim Ducks are a rebuilding team right now but if they draft right in the next couple of years, they could be a contender in a few years. This is how the Anaheim Ducks should draft the next few years. Before the 2022 Draft, two trades are made: Anaheim Ducks trade Jakob Silfverberg to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Kasperi Kapanen, Danton Heinen, 2024 3rd round pick. The Penguins add a veteran in Jakob Silfverberg, while the Ducks get two solid depth players in Kasperi Kapanen and Danton Heinen as well as a 3rd round pick. The Ducks also trade Sonny Milano, Zach Aston Reese to the Chicago Blackhawks for Dominik Kubalik, 2022 3rd round pick. The Ducks trade Sonny Milano and Zach Aston Reese, two solid players to the Blackhawks for a top 6 winger in Dominik Kubalik and a draft pick. 2022 Draft 12-Jonathan Lekkerimaki 24-Tristan Luneau 44-Owen Pickering 60-David Goyotte 90-Jake Furlong 108-Ludwig Persson 140-Nicholas Mouldenhauer 154-Colton Smith Anaheim improve their prospect pool t

How Buffalo Sabres can build a Contending Team by Draft

 The Buffalo Sabres may not be very good right now but if they draft right in the next couple of years, they should be a contender very soon. This is how the Buffalo Sabres should draft the next couple of years. Before the 2022 Draft, two trades are made Buffalo Sabres trade Victor Olofsson to the New Jersey Devils for Nolan Foote, Jesper Boqvist, 2023 2nd round pick. The Devils get a proven goal scorer in Victor Olofsson, while the Sabres get a top prospect in Nolan Foote, Jesper Boqvist and a 2nd round pick. Buffalo Sabres also trade Colin Miller, Cody Eakin, Vinnie Hinostroza to the Dallas Stars for Joel Kiviranta, 2022 5th round pick, 2023 6th round pick. This is a win-win trade for both teams; Dallas gets some depth to fill out the roster while Buffalo add Joel Kiviranta and some draft picks. 2022 Draft 5-Danila Yurov 17-Tristan Luneau 30-Alexander Perevalov 37-Filip Bystedt 70-Aleksanteri Kaskimaki 101-Kasper Kulonummi 132-Dominik Rymon 144-Nicholas Moldenhauer 165-Kasper Larsen

How New Jersey Devils can turn into a Contender by Draft

 The New Jersey Devils are a rebuilding team right now but if they draft correctly the next two-three years, they will be a contender in no time. This is how the New Jersey Devils should draft in the next few years. Before the 2022 Draft, two trades are made New Jersey Devils trade PK Subban to the Chicago Blackhawks for Alec Regula, 3rd round pick '22 (in a sign and trade). The Blackhawks get a veteran defenseman in PK Subban to help mentor their young players, while the Devils get Alec Regula, a solid defensive prospect and a draft pick. The Devils also trade Miles Wood, and Pavel Zacha to the Vancouver Canucks for Conor Garland, 1st round pick '23. This trade works for both team because the Canucks get two solid role players, who still have room to grow; for the Devils, they buy low on Conor Garland, and pick up an additonal 1st round pick for taking on his contract. At the 2022 Draft, New Jersey Devils trade pick 4 to the Columbus Blue Jackets for picks 8, 14, 46 The Devils
