The biggest trade in the NHL this year happened in Florida

When Frank Vatrano got wind of the Sergei Bobrovsky signing in Florida, he took to Twitter to make sure his new goalie felt welcomed, and to also make sure he knew he was willing to change jersey numbers for a small price.

Glad to give up #72 to @sergeibobrovsky looks like I'm gunna change to #77. Can't wait for my new Rolex and free dinner for a  year
Vatrano was only kidding of course, as he's only been in Florida for a year and a half at the point of the signing, he wasn't actually expecting anything from the Russian star goalie. Well, it turns out Bobrovsky got Vatrano some things, in one of the biggest trades of the year.

Frank Vatrano trades: Jersey number #72 and acquires from Sergei Bobrovsky - a $400 bottle of Wine, a quarter pounder with cheese, and a brand spanking new Rolex

Vatrano has a future in management with these types of deals he's pulling off. Kudos to Bob for splurging on the young guy.
