A massive three team trade has emerged that sends two big players to new homes.

The Proposed Three Team Trade, That Sees Two Big Players Traded



The Vancouver Canucks have Andrei Kuzmenko that has been a healthy scratch several times this year and rumors are floating that the Washington Capitals are interested in him.

Friedman on Kuzmenko possibly being a healthy scratch again (TJMS): «I think Washington is a team that has looked around at Kuzmenko, I just don't see a trade match there, it's not like the Canucks are going to take Anthony Mantha»




The reason that this is a three team trade is the Canucks can not take on the contract of Anthony Mantha, but there is a team that would be willing to take his contract on for the right price.

No, but #GoHabsGo might. He has an expiring contract at 5.7M. I would absolutely absorb his contract to add more assets

I wouldn't acquire him as a roster player, merely just a facilitator of a deal


"No (the Canucks can't take Mantha), but the Montreal Canadiens could. He has an expiring contract this summer at 5.7 million. I would absolutely absorb his contract to add more assets." - Costa Rontzocos

How The Trade Breaks Down



The trade looks something like this as it stands:

VANCOUVER Receives: Pick/Prospect

WASHINGTON Receives: Andrei Kuzmenko

MONTREAL Receives: Anthony Mantha + a 1st or 2nd round pick

The trade sees the Canucks get cap space that they need to acquire players they want, Montreal continue to add picks to their squad and Washington collect a star winger to their roster.
