I have always felt that when they are playing well is the time to trade because they are not desperate. I think we should have traded when we were on our ;ast hot streak. I mean lets say we BG is interested in Vinny....... I think the price just went up with the loss of Lang by quite a bit because they know we are desperate. I am not one to trade just to trade but what are your guys thoughts about the timing of trades. Trading when winning rather than trading when cold...
My opinion is that it is the perfect time for the Boston Bruins to make a trade for example, they are playing great and people know they are not desperate?
First off, we had 1 good seasons in the past few years, last season. Other than that, we haven't been that good.
Second, we don't know what when on with the Vinny situation.
Third of all, you don't trade for the fun of it, you do it to fill up a need. Can you tell me the need the Bruins, or Sharks for that matter, have right now?..
Finally, if we look at the teams that went after the big names these past years, they weren't desperate. Pittsburgh and Dallas were part of the best teams.
BG would also put an ''X'' on this season before selling out the farm, because he knows it wouldn't help us long term, which is more important.
