Well...you think something's going shake down?

I'm thinking they are gonna trade Wiess for a defenseman.

Spectors also stated this morning that we had a scout at the Carolina - Pittsburgh game last night as well....

:dunno:

i'd say he was eyeing super pest maltby (lw) and extremely gifted vyborny (rw)

I believe we're scouting a RW
A tough harding hitting RW
During the past few games during late in game keenan has but Messier and Hordichuck on the right wings, to hit hard and b defencive
I'm tell'n u, hard hitting RW who can score.
with kozlov in the center we r weak on the right

:dunno:

since interdivisional trades rarely go down (unless money and/or one is clearly out of the playoffs race), i think duds was eyeing abid(lw), buchberger(c), and kraft(c)

are you aware of what we have on left wing right now?

huselius
hagman
nilson (can be moved to 4th line/3rd line center)
hordichuk (a plug in enforcer who should not skate in all 82 reg. season games)
messier (pk specialist; nothing more than a 4th line lw, and can be moved to d if need be)

oh yeah, holmstrom LIVES in front of the net (we could almost consider niemenen for the same reason)

Nilson is off to a slow start but don't write him off to quickly. He plays an important role for us even when he isn't contributing on the scoresheet.

As for Messier, I love him on the 4th line and PK and would hate to see him displace any of our current defensemen...especially now that it appears the D has found their groove.

Vyborny would be pretty nice... He could really find a role as a top-notch powerplay super weapon.

Holmström would also be cool but It would be probably easier to find a younger version who is cheaper and easier to get, I feel Holmström might very well retire a red wing in a couple of years.

Hyvönen! :D
Just kidding. Sooner or later there will hopefully be some more "Holmströms".

Not if we acquire him first... Go Rick, Go.

:D

Holmstrom is Nilson with better hands, IMO.

I think we were looking at Mathieu Dandenault (great player to have), Ramzi Abid (stand in front of the net and shoot), Milan Kraft (big body, skilled and willing to shoot) !

One of these guys would be great for our team IMO

You guys do realize that Dudley goes on scouting trips all the time and doesn't acquire anyone, right?? But I couldn't see Abid being moved by Pittsburgh since they just got him last yr and he's shown some talent (even though I bet Rick wanted him during his draft day discussions).

But there was discussions during preseason that Huselius might move to RW and I think Hagman played on Jokinen's right side for the national team at one point. Plus, so many guys can play several positions.

We have been rumored to have been after him for years now! :rolleyes:
