    Default Risto to WNP

    I recently acquired Ristolainen in my dynasty league so naturally Iíve been thinking of possible landing spots for him and the best fit I can come up with is Winnipeg. It makes a lot of sense since Winnipeg lost both of Trouba and Myers this summer, they have an abundance of scoring wingers and Buffalo has a need for a winger while having a log jam on the blue line. So what would a possible trade look like? Iíd say it would be pretty simple and without getting cute and adding prospects or depth pieces to my imagined trades, here is what I think they could look like....

    Ristolainen for Ehlers (+?)
    Is a + required in this trade, if so how significant? A 2nd Round Pick maybe?

    Or if we wanted to get crazy....
    Ristolainen + for Laine
    Matt Larkin of The Hockey News seems convinced Laine wonít be back with the Jets this season and he claims to not be the only media person to believe this. Couple that with Laineís recent comments and we have some legit trade bait. Again, what and how big of a plus would be required for a trade like this?

    Thoughts?

    If Laine isn't in Winnipeg this year, its because he'll play in Europe waiting for a new contract. That's my assumption.

    Ehlers makes more sense but I'd imagine they'd have to add on their end to make a deal happen.

    If Buffalo traded with Winnipeg, I'd rather they avoid Ehlers altogether. I just don't think he's what they'd need.

    I'd rather go Connor, or top prospects and/or picks.

    I don't think Laine gets traded.

    Laine and Connor are untouchable, in my opinion. Connor's a sure bet, and I don't think there's any way they part with him. Laine may want a trade (I doubt it), but I think Chevy would just let him sit until he signs. Hopefully the team doesn't have another Trouba situation on its hands, but time will tell.

    I could see Ehlers for Risto, but I think Chevy's going to see how the team does for a while first.

    Anaheim is kinda light on the right side of their D as well, but Im not sure its a good fit in their timeline.

    While I think it would be a net plus for Winnipeg, it also strikes me as plugging one hole by creating another.

    Considering Risto wants out I don't believe they are going to get that kind of return. I feel like the return is going to be similar to that of the Trouba trade.

    would Laine be enough to get Pesce out of Carolina?

    That makes no sense for Carolina. Plugs a hole that may not even exist while weakening their D.

    I feel like that makes no sense for WPG either. Laine is worth more than a very underrated Pesce IMO.
