I really doubt Grimaldi will be there at 36, not a big fan of Jurco either to be honest.

azrok22 06-04-2011 03:51 PM

I do not think that Ottawa would trade for Gilroy -- everyone knows that we will not be qualifying him, so they'll simply wait for him to be a UFA if they want him. With a $2.1m qualifier, Gilroy should be treated as a de-facto UFA.

Otherwise pretty good (although I'm not comfortable penciling Thomas into the lineup and would probably go with Valentenko as the 7th dman, because he'd have to pass through waivers to go to the AHL, I believe).

MSG the place to be* 06-04-2011 04:20 PM

I like that trade but not the players you have us selecting.

If we sign him to a two way contract he can.

And Thomas is nhl ready IMO. He had more goals than anyone who would be picked in the top 10 (RNH will probably play in the nhl this fall) and he already has the speed. He will shock a lot of people this year. Nobody thought Stepan was ready last year and look what he did. I think MZA will have a solid year too. He works hard and Torts loves the guy. He gets top 9 minutes and PP time on a nightly basis, I think we could see 15 goals and 40 points out of him.

Jurco has crazy skills and is a solid 2 way player in the OHL. I see him as a 2nd/3rd line player who can put up 20-30 goals in his prime.

Gimmaldi is also very talented and works his ass off. He has very good potential and reminds me of Cammalleri.

I think both will take some time to develop which is also a positive, based on the surplus of prospects we have.

I don't think that Gilroy scenario is likely -- he isn't going to sign with us under his qualifier just to be traded away. I still believe you should just treat him as a de-facto UFA -- he has zero trade value.

Regarding Thomas, what he did was impressive, but there have been plenty of players that have torn up the CHL but done noting at the NHL level. He could surprise and make the team out of camp, but I think it unlikely.

BroadwayBlues 06-04-2011 04:47 PM

Dubinsky--Richards--Gaborik

Kreider--Stepan--Callahan

Hagelin--Anisimov--Zuccarello

Avery--Boyle--Prust


Staal--Girardi

McD--Sauer

MDZ--Erixon

*Notes*

I think either Hagelin or Thomas will make the team. Not both.

Drury and Wolski are goners.

Erixon makes the team. They say he's ready. So...

Happy trails to Vinny Prospal, Fedotenko and Christensen. Thank you for your services.

Only way I see those players back is if Kreider, Thomas, Grachev, Hagelin ALL fall flat on their fanny's.

Eminger back as a 7th Defenseman.

Zuccarello Awesome* 06-04-2011 04:56 PM

1) Gaborik, Wolski, [3rd or d-prospect like V-tank or Kundratek] for Johnson, Simmonds, Schenn
2) Girardi, Anisimov, Thomas, 1st for Lecavalier, 2nd
3) Sign Richards
4) Re-Sign Dubinsky, Callahan, Sauer, Boyle
5) Hope that Kreider turns pro. If not, pencil in whoever looks best in camp out of Grachev, Hagelin, Lindberg, or *gasp* Christensen.



Dubinsky Richards Lecavalier
Simmonds Stepan Callahan
Kreider Schenn Zuccarello
Fedotenko Boyle Prust

Christensen, Hagelin, Grachev, Lindberg (all in AHL until needed)

Staal Johnson
McDonagh Sauer
Del Zotto Erixon

Valentenko or cheap vet UFA

Lundqvist
Biron



For forwards, I love the possibilities of this lineup...

either:

Dubinsky Richards Lecavalier
Simmonds Stepan Callahan
Kreider Schenn Zuccarello
Fedotenko Boyle Prust


or


Dubinsky Richards Callahan
Stepan Lecavalier Zuccarello
Kreider Schenn Simmonds
Fedotenko Boyle Prust


or


Dubinsky Richards Stepan
Kreider Lecavalier Callahan
Simmonds Schenn Zuccarello
Fedotenko Boyle Prust





Go ahead and call me crazy. This team can compete for the cup this year and for the next 5+ at least. Those trades are fair for both teams and make SENSE for both teams. Hopefully LA is still interested in Gaborik to play on Kopitar's wing, and is willing to buy low.

1) Not realistic.
2) Not a good trade for us. Have you seen Lecavalier's contract?
3) Good.
4) Good.
4) Definitely hoping the Kreider turns pro, but even if he does, there's no guarantee he's going to make the team. Furthermore, Christensen and Kreider are competing for different spots (C vs. LW), and Lindberg is probably going to be in the SEL another year. Is he even coming over for training camp?

In what world does LA give up a 5 star prospect, a top pair defenseman, and simmonds for gabby and wolski?

Is that a joke?

I love the idea of Upshall with Gaborik and Richards. Thats a ****ing quick line. Also offering MacIntyre a 5 year deal is insane. Wouldnt mind him here for 1-2 years but 5? And Scott Hannan could be a good 1 year stop-gap if Del Zotto flops again but not for 3 years.

Vitto79 06-04-2011 08:00 PM

Sather will likely surprise me with something but here is my group, line combos aside

Keep it simple, sign Richards, sign RFAs, let all UFAs go so Prospal, Fedotenko, let Gilroy go, deal Christensen for a mid round pick. Buy out Drury only. One of Erixon/DZ makes it to start. Vtank gets a top spot. Bring a cheap vet as the 7th on a two way

Dubinsky, Richards, Gaborik
Wolski, Stepan, Callahan
Hagelin, Anisimov, Zuccarello
Avery, Boyle, Prust
Mitchell
( Grachev gets first call)

Staal, Girardi
McDonaugh, Sauer
Erixon, Valentenko
Eminger ( or cheap vet)
(Del Zotto will be up in time)

Lundqvist
Biron

This makes the most sense to me. Every other line-up i've seen is retarded...

Vitto's is also good... I just don't see it happening

When you have the best fighter in the league you want him here for a long time, well.. thats what I thought of lol.

No way Sather does that especially since we went out and got the best fighter in the league last year with Boogaard. (RIP)

RGY 06-04-2011 10:42 PM

If i see another trade proposal including Marion Gaborik going to LA i might hack into this board and shut it down. THE WHOLE POINT OF GETTING RICHARDS IS SO HE CAN PLAY WITH GABORIK. Otherwise just fricking start rebuilding again if you want to add young guys like schenn and simmonds and save the money instead of spending it on 31 year old richards who wants to win now.

some people just dont think.

RGY 06-04-2011 10:46 PM

and i dont think Thomas is ready just yet.

I think Hagelin starts in the AHL.

And as more time passes the more i think kreider will be staying at BC.

I dont think i've seen Grachev's name mentioned but he will definitely be given a long look in camp for a spot on the opening night roster.

Well, not to sound like an ass. but how often does a player die? Steve is considered the best enforcer maybe 5 is to many years but when we had Orr we sure did want him for many more years, maybeee I'm thinking to much :laugh:

NO. IT ISN'T! GO BACK TO NHL 11. THE POINT OF GETTING RICHARDS IS THAT WE'VE NEEDED A LEGITIMATE 1ST LINE CENTER FOR OVER A DECADE. THE POINT OF GETTING RICHARDS IS THAT HE MAKES US A BETTER TEAM. THE POINT OF GETTING RICHARDS IS THAT HE IMPROVES OUR POWERPLAY. THE POINT OF GETTING RICHARDS IS THAT HE'S THE BEST OPTION AVAILABLE AND WE DON'T HAVE TO LOSE ANY ASSETS EXCEPT MAYBE A DRAFT PICK IF WE DEAL FOR HIS RIGHTS BEFORE JULY 1ST! Gaborik has scored without an elite centerman before now, and he will in the future. Gaborik may not be in the teams short-term plans, let alone long-term. We're not signing Richards for Gaborik. Get this out of your head. It is complete hogwash.

Chill with the caps lock.

mti79 06-05-2011 02:30 AM

My feelings.... if we do sign Richards, we're closer to competing for the Cup if we keep Gaborik then if we deal him away. He's a legit scorer. We don't have anyone else close to what he can do. We need to hold onto him and let him do what he does. This past year was the aberration, not the norm.

Also, I really don't see the Rangers buying out Wolski. He may be traded for something but I truly don't think we'll be buying him out.
