    TRADE:

    Montreal Recieves:

    G. Nyquist (83 Overall Exact Top 6 F)
    F. Nielsen (83 Overall Exact Top 6 F)

    Detroit Recieves:

    Montreal 1st Round Pick (2018)
    J. de la Rose (75 Overall Low Top 9 F)

    Montreal is definitely missing the playoffs, so the pick can turn out good. Nyquist is out leading scorer, so trading him could be good for the draft lottery. Nielsen is having an abysmal year, and he gives good trade value. de la Rose is so the trade would go through.

    TRADE:

    Winnipeg Recieves:

    T. Daley (82 Overall Exact Top 4 D)
    J. Abdelkader (81 Overall Exact Top 6 F)
    V. Saarijarvi (62 Overall Med Top 6 D)

    Detroit Recieves:

    Winnipeg 1st Round Pick (2018)

    Deadline day trade gives us 5 picks in the first 2 rounds. Daley becomes the best left handed defensemen on a team which needs left handed defensemen, and Abdelkader can slot nicely on the first or second line Left Wing for Winnipeg. The Jets our out of the playoffs, so probably another lottery pick.

    Just my luck. Both Montreal and Winnipeg are competing for a playoff spot. At least our pick may get number one.

    We came 4th to last in the league, Montreal was the worst team to make the playoffs, and Winnipeg just missed. Not so good after all.
