Summer '13 Thread (All Proposals, Speculation, Blog Rumors in here)
 
UFA day is a month away, so figured now was a good time to create the mega sticky.

Looking over the UFAs...Yikes.

Looks like any significant improvement to the club is going to have to come through trades.

At this moment in time, maybe. There are still a couple of names I like. Having said that, things like look better after buyouts.

Should rank right up there with some of my other favorite summers.

I said this to the wife. She didn't seem to appreciate it, with her slam-the-door line being "...and she looks like a troll!"

Anybody want Ronny Hainsey back?, No?...nobody?

Clarkson is a pipe dream ... really think he ends up in Toronto, as he's from that area and seems to have a desire to go there.

Wow, the Leafs only have 12 players signed for next season. 7 RFA's. Gonna be a busy off-season for them.

With all the Malkin speculation coming out and one guy on the mains stating multiple times now that Malkin will be a jacket. I keep trying to think if there is a deal to be made. Now be easy this is my first attempt at a trade proposal and i'm no good at these. Now i now pit wants defense so i was thinking along the lines of Tyutin, Umberger, and 2 1sts. Please be easy on me.

Fro 06-06-2013 08:48 AM

i joked on twitter about it this morning saying Nikitin and Umby are as far as I'd go...but yeah, we'd prob have to retain a bit of RJ's salary, but i could see that as some sort of work around...Pens fans wouldn't like it...but for a nearly unsigned Malkin, I'm not giving up a lot of assets needed...

I don't see how the Jackets can get Malkin without including at least one of Murray/JJ/Bob.

The price for Malkin is extreme, imo. Where did this come from? Credible at all?

Agreed, we already gave up quite a bit for 90 games of Gaborik. I have a hard time selling the farm for 82 from Malkin. Cap goes back up right as both would hit free agency, and going to be a lot of suitors for both of their services. Just have a hard time thinking either would be here in 2 years.

Stating that he was going to be a jacket, no but Dregger tweeted about trade speculation

I agree that getting both of them locked up in the same summer would be nearly impossible, but what makes you think Gaborik is a sure goner?

IMO, not even close. You are giving them a lot of salary and not a lot of value.

IMO, they would have to include 2 and/or they would have to add a lot of draft picks and Johansen.

I wouldn't trade for Malkin, because he would cost a TON, but I would love to have him on the Jackets.

Johansen and 2 firsts for Malkin?




Done.

IMO, you are going to have add a lot more to that offer to get Malkin.

Just a gut feeling that we were his parachute out of New York, and and will be discarded once he gets the opportunity to get his feet back in a more desirable location.

Maybe I just have too many friends who live in Minnesota who are still bitter about his contract year there, but I just have a hard time expecting things to go smoothly.

Without a doubt, i was just stating what someone else did. But who/what do you add? That's a franchise cornerstone if I've ever seen one.

Like I said, I would love to have him on the Jackets, but I wouldn't trade for him. It would just take too much.
