Samesies.

It's actually a pretty easy choice. Kennedy likely has the highest trade value of the three because of his age(and he's a bit redundant on this roster). Dupuis is the best player of the three, doesn't cost much, and has good chemistry with our best player. Cooke is sort of the odd man out of the three. Especially since he's really not all that effective as an agitator anymore.

**** Cooke
Marry Dupuis
Kill Kennedy

Agreed with everyone else, keep Dupuis, trade Kennedy and let Cooke walk.

This was easy!

If they're letting Cooke walk, they'd better have a viable replacement in mind.

Pretty much this.

Still, given his reputation, if Cookie walked...where would it be to I wonder?

Tender Rip 02-09-2013 11:21 PM

All are in agreement it seems.

Pretty much the same as everyone else.

Can we also work under the assumption that Adams will be gone and that Bylsma's pillow will be soaked in tears at night?

Keep Dupuis
Trade Cooke
Let Kennedy walk.

Cooke would get a better return based on his current play over Kennedy.

Even if Cooke is playing better than Kennedy(which is debatable I suppose), I still think Kennedy's age/past production, and Cooke's baggage give Kennedy the higher trade value.

Kovifan27 02-10-2013 12:49 AM

Trade Kennedy (RFA value)
Keep Dupuis at 1.5 or less
Have a nice day Cooke

No, I'm not going to play this game. I think in order to keep our team identity and give us competitive advantage, we need to keep Cooke AND Dupuis. I think both will take a bit of a hometown discount.


Kennedy will be the sensible one to move, because if we are able to bring in a top-flight winger, we won't need Kennedy's 20-goal/season production -- which we're not getting right now anyway -- and because Kennedy has some trade value by virtue of not being a UFA. So my answer is very simple:

Keep Cooke (on a 2 year deal)
Keep Dupuis (on a 2 year deal)
Trade Kennedy (unless we utterly fail to acquire another winger via UFA or trade, and/or if Boychuk and Jeffrey do not produce)


This is not only the clearest answer, it's also the one that best approximates reality and what is likely to happen.

Pretty much wherever he wanted. Cooke is a very good hockey player and has been for a long time, despite the fact that he has a bad rep from fans.

This.

Although I wouldn't mind keeping Cooke so long as he signs for a cheap price.

I would puke if it were to the Flyers. I could see it happen though.
