MOCK TRADE: Coyotes and Sabres Make a Goalie Swap

Published July 29, 2023 at 2:12

Vejmelka is Done!

Karel Vejmelka has expressed his disappointment with the state of the Coyotes, and would likely be happy with a trade.

"I don't think a single game was sold out this year. It was mostly away fans too. The prices are stupid, $160 for the cheapest seat in a tiny university arena" - Karel Vejmelka

Could a switch to the east be a feasible and more promising solution for him?

Potential Goalie Exchange

Given the circumstances, a direct goalie exchange appears to be an optimal solution at the moment. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, a Buffalo Sabres prospect, is currently facing a decline in value, and it seems impractical for the Sabres to manage a duo of rookies, especially as they approach potential contention.

Being a seasoned goalie, Vejmelka could complement the young talent Devon Levi exceptionally well, forming an impressively strong goalie duo.

On the other hand, this trade could offer Lukkonen a significant break, presenting the Coyotes with a promising opportunity.

Who do you think this trade would benefit the most?
