I'd be all for it as long as the price was right and they could bring in a young D with him.

I don't know what we could offer or where he slots in aside from 3rd line wing which could be awesome but I couldn't see us giving up any real assets for him

CS 08-20-2012 09:15 PM

A 1st and Cousins.

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Schenn - Briere
Read - Couturier - Umberger
Wellwood - Talbot - Fedotenko

:laugh:

BobbyClarkeFan16 08-20-2012 09:16 PM

Would love to see Umberger back here. He'd be a great fit on a line with Read and Couturier. Could leave Fedotenko - Talbot - Wellwood as the fourth line. That's a pretty good bottom six that could really do something special. As long as it doesn't gut the team, then yeah, go for landing Umberger. It'd be great to have him back.

hockeyfreak7 08-20-2012 09:17 PM

Umberger would fit perfectly in our current lineup.

But can you provide a link to this apparent trade request?

mm6492 08-20-2012 09:18 PM

Always loved Umberger, Columbus put him in a position to fail (he was never 1st line center).

However I don't think giving up assets for a forward is the right move right now.

And 4.6M is alot with us having to fill holes on defense and lock up our current cure.

sobrien 08-20-2012 09:27 PM

Not believing it until it leaves Aaron Portzline's mout....err...twitter. Jackets are going in the right direction, and he can be a centerpiece to that. Hopefully he changes his mind or someone talks him out of it.

Philadelphia Ducks 08-20-2012 09:27 PM

I love Umberger but I don't want that contract. So I'd pass. 4.6 million for 5 more years, no thanks.

BleedOrange 08-20-2012 09:35 PM

Most of the the posts i read on twitter aren't good sources so take it for that but i would like to see Umberger but we have alot of forwards we do need Dman more..

Jumping 08-20-2012 09:40 PM

How about Read, 1st in 2013 and Gus or MAB for Umby and Nikitin?

CBJ is very weak on the wing and Nikitin would replace Mez.

Don't think they'd do that. Value they're losing is better than the value they're receiving.

Schenn Bros Pizza* 08-20-2012 09:57 PM

Give me Umberger and Tyutin or Niktitin.

Erza Scarlet 08-20-2012 10:16 PM

Have to use that 4.6 on a D more.

RJ8812 08-20-2012 10:23 PM

makes too much

SeanVT395 08-20-2012 10:48 PM

He'd look great on a line with Carter and Upshall.

Honestly, if by some divine intervention the CBA is restructured with a similar salary cap situation just with more revenue sharing, I would probably say **** it. We have Briere and Timonen expiring soon.

Well played.

RT @cbjfan161: @Aportzline @smitchcd any truth to the rumor that @Umby18 asked for a trade out of columbus? / Don't be ridiculous. No truth.

Sleep well tonight kids. Dreams of past Flyers returning for glory will have to wait another day.

dats81 08-21-2012 02:05 AM

Umberger is good at faceoffs but makes way too much to slot him into 4th C and apart from that he is not worth giving up a younger cheaper winger like Read for him.

dingbathero 08-21-2012 04:47 AM

/close thread

4.6 NO.

and a rumor.

Giroux tha Damaja 08-21-2012 07:24 AM

Even if it was true, and Holmgren could make a good deal to get him, it's the wrong move for where this team is at right now.

Spongolium* 08-21-2012 11:03 AM

He's a solid play-off performer too.

umbuger with fries would look good next to Couturier. Very good.
