No no. You have to think short term. It actually looks like we have a small chance to make the playoffs.

Trade everyone for older players!

You are correct!

Older players!

Older retiring players.

Nolan already retired bro, I know I wanted him too.

But with the Rick Nash talk I do firmly believe Lombardi is probably the one under the most pressure to get him right now.

The Kings are able to give up what CBJ is looking for and they are in dire need of some scoring.

I would like to see him go to LA more than any other team because I fear Burke may be trying to throw something in there to get him and I would hate to see the Leafs get him.

It might gut the Leafs to get Nash though - I'm not sure who'd be involved in the trade on the Toronto side, but it would have to be pretty significant, I would think.

Me thinks this as well, and the major kicker is that CBJ desperately needs a goalie which the Leafs do not have.

So barring a 3 team trade I think we'll see Rick in a Kings jersey in a few weeks. I hope it happens as I have always had a soft spot for the Kings since the old Gretzky, Robitaille and Blake days, I would be happy to see them succeed.

Completely agree. Lombardi needs to make a splash to save his job. Nash needs out of Columbus. I sure hope the Leafs don't acquire him, the Burke fan club would probably shut down HF.

Joe Hallenback 02-21-2012 08:30 AM

I willing to bet Nash does not get traded at the deadline but moves at the draft this summer.

The asking price for bubble teams would be too much and if you are the Rangers I am not sure you want to give up any roster players.

WJG 02-21-2012 12:26 PM

If we're still in playoff contention next week, my ideal playoff rental player would Andrei Kostitsyn.

He's a physical and defensively responsible LW who can put up 20+ goals. I think he could fit in pretty well on the 3rd line next to Antropov and Fehr.

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Burmi-Wellwood
Kostitsyn-Antro-Fehr
Glass-Slater-Thorburn

Those are three pretty solid lines + GST, IMO.

Has had multiple out in the open public battles with coaches. Hardly the sort of character type of individual that the Jets would seek in the room, IMO.

The Leafs have a bunch of goalie prospects who look pretty decent, upgrades over Sanford anyway. They don't have a true number 1 guy right now though, you're right there.

I don't think we'll be seeing any more 3-way trades with the cap system and everything. The Kings seem to be in the running for a bunch of stars but just miss out: Kovalchuk, Brad Richards. Wouldn't surprise me to see them finish number 2 in the Nash sweepstakes.

Funny proposal of the day: A Free press commentor feels we should play Mason tonight to showcase him to "Philly brass", and then move him for Brayden Schenn.

It was mentioned in the previous thread, but I wouldn't mind seeing if Chevy could utilize some of his cap space to add an expensive contract (hopefully UFA) from another team, AND get an additional asset as compensation.

I would think that many of the teams that are seriously thinking about getting Nash or Carter might also want or need to make a secondary move to offload some salary to make it work.

Was saying the exact same thing especially LA if they get Nash they will need to move someone if the Jets take Penner they could easily ask for a good prospect in return.

Jet Bomber 02-21-2012 03:11 PM

I personally would like to see us grab Grabovski. But I understand why we wouldn't.

Absolutely. I've thought the exact same thing.

It's the same way we got Wheeler and Stuart last year as Boston needed to make a move to make space for Kaberle.

It's definitely an angle we should try and take. The only problem is that in return the only cap friendly return we can realistically give is Wellwood.

Wpgpage 02-21-2012 03:30 PM

Well that was an interesting 3 way trade, another guy off the market LA(if they move JJ)/VAN/CHI/NJ getting desperate to add a Dman?

GrandChelems 02-21-2012 03:34 PM

At around 10:00 tonight let's trade everyone who didn't play well against the Flyers for prospects because they're obviously not good enough, and call up from the farm to fill the gaps because obviously, they are.

Jets 02-21-2012 03:51 PM

Boston could move Rask and Hamilton and throw in a third player or pick like maybe Marchand to get Nash and Mason. Then they could develop Mason to take Thomas' spot and Rask could get out of the shadow.

No way anyone can count on Mason to be a starter in the NHL.

They won't do a deal concerning those pieces.

Boston's removed themselves from the bidding because they are unwilling to part with either of Rask or Hamilton, let alone both.

Ulf Hullberg 02-21-2012 04:24 PM

Wow...there sure are some crazy ideas for trades. More imagination & creativity than reality, but what the heck it makes for some interesting reading before bedtime.

IMO, the Jets will be a very small player @ the TDL (ie, Fehr, or Mittens lifts his NMC). But, IF they do make a bigger move, it will be because some GM made Chevy an offer for Johnny O. (or Hainsey) that he just can't refuse.

IF the Jets pick up 2 or 3 more wins before Monday, they would have to feel they have a legitimate shot at still catching the Panthers or Leafs. Therefore, giving up a top 4 to 6 defenceman is not an easy decision to make.
