Zadorov is a lefty that can play both sides.dcz28 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 24, 2023 6:26 pmBoth are lefties though. I don't think Chiarot is easy to move at all given his contract and how bad defensively he's been with the Wings. Flyers changed their GM and the new one might not want to trade Provorov at all and i doubt he want Chiarot at all. Plus Chiarot has a 10 team no trade list so who knows which teams are on his list.DelHowLich wrote: ↑Fri Mar 24, 2023 5:02 pmOr trade for Zadorov for that nastiness. There is also Provorov in the rumor mill, I would trade Chiarot and a second for Provorov, Philly might do it for the cap savings and the fact that Philly does not have a 2nd round pick this year.dcz28 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 24, 2023 1:04 pm
Wings left side seems to have a lot of offensive minded defensemen with Walman, Edvinsson, Chiarot (even though he doesn't produce much offense) and even prospects like Johansson and Wallinder. Wings might want more defensive types on the right side or at least 2 way guys. Usually those guys are cheaper to trade for or sign as UFAs. Personally i would let Haag and Oesterle walk, trade Lindstrom or waive him at the start of the season unless he prove he belongs in camp and pre-season next year. I would sign both Luke Schenn and Gudas short term for the right side and both would add some nastiness to the defense along with a more defensive style to pair with the more offensive minded left side.
I think the only way to get rid of Chiarot at this point is for a bad cap dump. Maybe they could swindle Vancouver to take him for Myers before they have to pay the bonus but after they pay it no way they make that deal. Unless the Wings want to pay to dump him on someone else, they might be stuck with him for a while. Maybe Yzerman can get Verbeek to take him for cheap given how bad their defense is and the fact they aren't looking to compete anytime soon but again the 10 team no trade list could block that move.
Funny you mentioned Verbeek and Anaheim. I wonder if we could relieve them of Fowler? Chiarot + Zadina + a 2nd for Fowler? Fowler is from Windsor; do you think he had Red Wing PJ's as a boy?
