Is this today’s steal of the day?
SJS receives LWs TJ Galiardi and Daniel Winnick from COL for LW Jamie McGinn and Prospects Mike Connolly and Mike Sgarbossa:
Galiardi Ranking – 5.202 Left Wing
Winnick Ranking – 5.179 Left Wing
McGinn Ranking – 5.850 Left Wing
SJS Left Wing Need – Short one “5” against the Stanley Cup Winning Baseline (SCWB) which was compensated for by the two “6’s” and one “5” on their roster. This now gives them a net +1 Left Wings at their team’s highest level, an improvement of one over the SCWB.
COL Left Wing Need – One each “4″ Left Wings; now needs two “5/4″ Left Wings
Net Analysis: Advantage SJS in a two-for-one swap at NHL-starting LW; the effect of the loss of the Prospects will be played out in the years to come
