You guys actually expect a team thinking about a Stanley Cup to give up a core player off their roster for a rental. You have to be kidding.
see above me for the reason why we traded kovalchuk. not like we were winning much with him anyway.
how the hell was kovy's return bad? it got us one of the top scoring rookies in the nhl, a very good defenseman, a good prospect, and a 1st rounder.

people look at bergfors and see he is still a rookie at 21 while they're used to all these 18 and 19 year olds and assume he sucks, it's not normal for guys to come in at 18 or 19. most of the time it doesn't work that way.

people see oduya has not many points and assume he sucks. there's way, WAY more to being a defenseman than points.

people see cormier made one very bad decision and assume he's a talentless goon that can do nothing but headhunt. this is not the case.

the only reason anyone thinks the return for kovalchuk was bad is because of that overinflated view of rentals so many people have here. that was a surprisingly good return for kovalchuk and you HAVE TO BE KIDDING if you think it wasn't

as for trading kubina for spezza, no, we do not think the qttawa senators are going to give us jason spezza for pavel kubina. that was what is called a hyperbole which is a figure of speech in this case used to indicate that something is so far out of the realm of possibility that it is ridiculous to even suggest it. obviously nobody is going to trade spezza for kubina. if you believe we were serious about that you HAVE TO BE KIDDING
