Avalanche acquire a defenseman
Golden Knights send Schmidt to Canucks
Cam Robinson: “Giving up a 3rd rounder two years out for a top 4 D is tremendous value. However, when that D is 29, making 5.9M for 5 more years and you’re helping a divisional rival out of a jam, it’s far less so.”
Scott Billeck: It’s possible that the Winnipeg Jets were talking to the Golden Knights about Schmidt but maybe they were a team on his 10-team no-trade list.
Eric Engels: “In case you’re not keeping track: Ryan Murray for a fifth-round pick, Paul Stastny for a conditional fourth and a 7-8 dman, and Nate Schmidt for a third-round pick. Quality players going for scraps–the pandemic’s effect on HRR and the cap.”
