Remember the Neiwendyk/Roberts rumor?
 
Well I was wondering if you guys think it would be cool if we picked up Joe + Gary at the deadline. And if so, what kind of arrangement with Florida do you think they would have?

Sounded like a not so bad idea. A lot of teams will have a hidden weapon right before the deadline that will change their team (most probably for the good) going into the play offs. What do you guys think of that? Buffalo now could be even stronger in the playoffs with a good deadline trade.

Nieuwendyk retired a few weeks ago...Roberts is a guy alot of playoff teams should be lining up to acquire IMO.

He really retired?!? I've been out of the loop for about say.... 2 weeks. Did he retire in that time frame???

I could see Roberts being of interest, but that depends on how his attitude's perceived by Montreal management.

I've heard Roberts can be a leader and character individual, but I've also heard he can be very problematic in the dressing room.

Where did you hear that?

I'd take roberts anyday. Although we look fairly deep at the wings, we dont have an experienced power guy like gary. He could be very valuable in a playoff run.

Dude, climb out from under the rock. Even if Joe were still playing (once every 10 games) we don't need two wingers ready for the beer league. Concentrate on the areas we need help.
