Latest Source Reveals What The Rangers Original Asking Price For Kravtsov Was And Allvin Played It Like A Genius

The Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks have been trying to facilitate a trade to send Patrick Kane to the Rangers. Rangers General Manager Chris Drury is working hard trying to clear some cap space to make that happen, placing Jake Leschyshyn on waivers and traded Vitali Kravtsov to the Canucks.

The Canucks only had to send forward Will Lockwood and a 2026 7th round pick to the Rangers in return. This was a very good move after hearing what the New York Rangers were asking for Kravtsov originally.

According to hockey insider Grady Sas:

"I was told by people close to the situation that #NYR wanted Höglander for Kravtsov, but the #Canucks didn't bend. When the price dropped on Kravtsov, Vancouver offered lower value."



The Kravtsov asking price definitely went down because according to Canucks insider Rick Dhaliwal, the Rangers wanted a 1st round pick for Kravtsov:

"This is why on Thursday and Friday the Canucks thought price was too high. Obviously price dropped today. Give Alvin credit for patience and catching NY in a pickle.
Talks started with Van and NY 4 weeks ago. Original asking price was mid first rounder."

I think Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin did very well in this trade acquiring a 23-year-old former 9th overall pick for a minor league player and a 7th round pick in 2026. The Canucks won this trade.
