Coburn has proven to be a top 2 defenseman, and on his worst day he is an excellent 3-4. Then factor in a first round pick in a very deep draft. The pick/prospect/or player is kind of moot, because with the 2 peices before it, it would have to be a low pick or a mediocre prospect.
That 1st rounder is going to be a very late one.The isles already have 2 first rounders and 3 seconder rounders,so losing the 1st or 2nd overall for another late 1st rounder,has zero appeal.
Parent has the makings of a top line defensman, but is probably a great 3-4 defenseman who plays a solid all around game.
Youngsters Gervais and Hillen are both playing well in Gordon's system.
Isles are calling Hamonic a poor man's Luke Schenn,saying his upside is a #2 or #3 defensemen.Throw in Niemi,Ness and MacDonald and the Isles would probably prefer to keep developing their own kids, instead of moving their high 1st for another unproven prospect.
Lupul, who has scored 20+ goals 3/5 NHL seasons. Then, like I have said before, a first round pick in a very deep draf
Yeah, Lupul would immediately become the isles top lw.Is his 25 goals a yr,worth losing a potential franchise player though?Not imo.
At most I think the isles would move a high 2nd and good prospect or their late 1st for Lupul if they thought they were gonna be completely shut out of the ufa market or if they went with Hedman instead of Tavares the scorer.
Lupul's $4m+ salary would limit Philly's trade partners.We saw at the trade deadline that teams's don't want to spend in this financial climate.
