The Athletic’s Pronman on possible prospect targets

The Athletic’s Corey Pronman examined the prospect pools of this year’s trade deadline “buyers,” discussing possible trade deadline chips, and as Mike Green is probably headed to the Tampa Bay Lightning, here’s what Pronman had to say about the Bolts’ prospect pool:

Tampa is in an interesting spot. They have a deep system of solid prospects but don’t have one true high-end guy outside the NHL. Teams looking to their system will have plenty of options and different kinds of players. Want a skilled playmaker with size? Alexander Volkov is your man and is the top guy in their system for me right now. Want a hard-worker with some touch? Boris Katchouk. A reliable two-way center? Brett Howden, Mitchell Stephens and Anthony Cirelli. A winger with great speed and solid skill? Mathieu Joseph. A big winger with good sense and goal-scoring ability? Taylor Raddysh. A big puck-moving defenseman? Cal Foote. A solid two-way defender? Libor Hajek. Connor Ingram is a nice goalie too. There were others I didn’t mention as well, but the point is selling teams have a lot to pick from here depending on what they value and/or need.
