If you want to see my breakdown of those that’s, another video right here on this youtube channel belonging to sportsnet let’s, go through some of the other moves that have happened so far and leading into today, because we’ve already had some action. The ottawa senators have been very busy bees, they’re, not huge moves, but if you’re gon na sell at the deadline. This is how you do it. The first is a small one. They send braden coburn a depth defenseman to the new york islanders in exchange for a seventh round pick in 2022, that’s, pretty self explanatory depth guy who they’re not going to use going forward, you might as well get something and that’s something there’s, a 7th rounder. The much bigger move here mike riley, a defenseman who’s, got some really good underlying numbers going to the boston bruins for a third round pick. Yet again, this draft pick is in 2022. It appears that’s, obviously something that the senators value and let’s face it. The 2021 draft it could end up being a very good one, but a lot of teams genuinely have no idea. It’S been extremely difficult to scout and a lot of junior leagues, aren’t even playing, but a third rounder – is decent value for mike riley, and also important for the ottawa senators. For a guy who makes 1.5 million against the cap, they retained zero dollars, that’s nice. Now you can’t just sell everybody, though you actually got to have people to play for your team.
Actually, they got that figured out. The montreal canadiens placed young and pending restricted free agent, defenseman victor mete on waivers, and the ottawa senators claimed him for nothing because that’s how claims work he can’t claim a guy for something. So so far, this deadline, the ottawa senators, have given up mike riley and braden coburn and in exchange they’ve received a third round pick a seventh round pick and victor mate that’s tidy. It helps them in the future. They get a little help immediately. That’S really good for a selling team, not to mention you’re, getting a player from a divisional rival this year and probably going forward and he’s going to be pretty eager to prove himself. This once highly sought after prospect, just couldn’t really find a spot with the montreal canadiens moving off of the sense, a big deal, but a weird one. From last night jeff carter going from the la kings to the pittsburgh penguins, the la kings retained 50 of his cap hit, which is very significant because it’s not cheap, in fact it’s over 2.6 million dollars, which is especially significant because carter is not only under contract. This season, but also next there are a variety of conditions on these picks, thank goodness for catfriendly.com let’s, look at them actually, first and foremost, i should say: it’s a 2022 third round pick and a 2023 so down the line. Fourth round pick from catfriendly.com the conditions on the 2022 third round pick an upgrade to a second round pick if the penguins reach the 2021 stanley cup final and carter plays in at least 50 percent of the games.
The conditions on the 2023 fourth round pick can upgrade to a third rounder if carter plays at least 50 games during next season. Basically, if the pittsburgh penguins go all the way to the cup final this year, if carter is a significant part of their team next year, they could end up paying a second and a third which sounds like a lot considering what the sabres got for taylor hall, But that’s, where the conditions are key, if carter is good for the pittsburgh penguins good enough to play in the lineup next season, if they make it to the stanley cup final, who cares about the picks here’s a pro the last team to acquire jeff carter at The trade deadline won the stanley cup. It was when the kings got him from the blue jackets here’s the con that was nine years ago. I saw a bunch of people going. Why would pittsburgh do this he’s too old? I think, being a maybe overpaid player at this point in your career and being unuseful are two completely different things at over 5 million bucks or even at what the penguins are getting them for a little over 2.6 jeff carter is still a useful player outside of The cappet, which for the penguins is a little over 2.6 mil jeff carter, is still a useful player, 13 goals and 33 points two seasons ago, 27 points in 60 games last season, but 17 of those points were goals and he’s got 19 points in 40 games.
This season, that’s about half a point, a game is that great value i don’t know about that, but he does make the pittsburgh penguins better on the ice, which is the entire point of the trade and speaking of the trade. The jeff carter trade tree continues check that out here on the sportsnet youtube channel. I talked about many moons ago when jeff carter was moved twice in one season, spoiler alert the kings won, watch it anyway and putting a bow on the moves that happened last night. The leafs were not done after getting nick felino near 11 o’clock last night. They acquired big, save dave, dave riddick from the calgary flames. Big save dave not having the best season in the world. He’S only got a 904 save percentage and a losing record, but over the past two seasons he has caused nightmares for the toronto maple leafs. He always seems to bring his a game and in return, the calgary flames get a third round pick for the leafs that’s. Nothing for what he provides. Is he gon na play a ton? Well, there’s, not many games left in the regular season and who knows how many games he’s gon na play in the playoffs, but that’s the thing you don’t need a goalie until you really need a goalie, the insurance. This provides the leafs they don’t know. What’S, going on with frederick anderson uh jack campbell has battled injury this season. This is a good insurance move, nothing from their prospect, pool nothing off their active roster, very little risk and for the flames the writing was sort of.
On the wall, uh markstrom was their goalie forever and ever all men, based on that contract and he’ll, be backed up by someone else. It looks like getting something for a player who’s just gon na leave anyway, is always better than nothing and it’s not confirmed yet, but it looks like dave. Rita could already play his first game as a leaf and it’ll potentially be against the calgary flames, not confirmed, but keep an eye on that that should be very fun and to wrap things up. A couple smaller moves at the beginning of today, adam gaudette, going from the vancouver canucks to the chicago blackhawks for matthew, highmore audits, 24 highmore is 25, but highmore costs over 200 thousand dollars less and also wow. This just in from the edmonton oilers twitter account regarding ryan nugent, hopkins happy birthday, every social media manager in the league just trolling us right now. It does sound like they’re gon na, go out and get dimitri kulikov, though, who should be a uh depth, defenseman for them for now that is it for this one.
