L.A.-NYR Proposal
 
To L.A.- Anson Carter

To NYR- Jaroslav Modry


Both guys have kinda fallen out of favor in their respective cities, Modry at least has been called out by AM out here, and I was wondering what people would think of this deal. Feel free to add in missing pieces as you see fit. Flame away.

Why do we need Carter?

He adds nothing to our club that we don't already have. Unless we are getting a big, strong, physical forward (which Carter is most certainly not), why bother?

We need help on defense as it is. Trading Modry leaves Norstrom & Miller (?) as our defenseman on the 2nd PP unit. Now I would have no objection to trading Modry if we got an upgrade on the blueline (ie. Hamrlik) but otherwise we are just opening up a hole for no reason.

Value-wise, I like the deal but it makes no practical sense.

Carter would make Allison happy and encourage him to maybe come back sooner but Modry is too valuable to this team right now.

Who's gonna replace his 25 minutes ice per game?

I am going to guess that not much thought or logic was put into this proposal.
Why would the Kings need to add another forward on top of Palffy, Straka, Stumpel, Frolov, Robitaille, Cammalleri, Klatt ?
Where would Carter fit in when Armstrong and Allison return?
Who fills in for Modry on the point on the PP and could be put into the Kings top 4 D pairings?

This offer makes absolutely no sense for the Kings. And right now more than anything they need to add a physical dman and address the woeful penalty kill. They don't need an underachieving forward.

We could put Gleason there or use him as the defencive blue liner and give Corvo more roaming room. I would only move Modry to land another skill player (like Carter) if I knew that we were going to be without Deadmarsh for another year or more.

Reaper45 12-07-2003 06:06 PM

I simply proposed this deal because it seems (to me) that Straka was acquired as Allison's replacement, and acquiring Carter would fill in, albeit not as well, as Deadmarsh's replacement. Corvo, or Gleason could fill in at Modry's role. We're carrying 7 d-men on the roster for a reason.

Nope. Carter is on a hot streak right now and playing well. And the Rangers don't need another offensive defenseman. And the Rangers already have a defenseman who doesn't play defense in Tom Poti.

I thought that the Rags were talking to the B's about Poti? Modry isn't doing too bad himself, and he's cheaper than Poti. Hell if you guys throw in Purinton we'll throw in...?


To L.A.-Anson Carter and Dale Purinton

To NYR-Jaroslav Modry and a pick?

If the Rangers are looking to deal Poti to the Bruins then why would they want Modry?

I have heard nothing about the Rangers looking to deal Poti to the Bruins.

Contrary to other Kings fans belief... Modry is too valuable to the team at this point to trade. even though he's a UFA... so is 90% of the team.

I Am Ziggy Palffy 12-07-2003 10:05 PM

the kings need modry a lot more than they need carter...modry is invaluable on the PP...he has been the most consistent contributor on the PP for some time now...tho fans seem to hate him, without him, the kings would be worse on D than they imagine...if visnovsky goes down to injury like he has the past few years, the kings would be very happy to have modry still there
