I'm know he's 'damaged' or whatever word there is for a guy that is down, but then again he lost an amazing wing and his other wing is my grandfather. That team hates life. All the bad stuff people are saying right now is the same stuff said about Thornton in '05. Not saying he'll put up Thornton numbers following a trade, but it is possible to have a bounce back especially with Gaborik riding shotgun. This is why I like a trade here. His value is relatively low, Murray is negotiating through the media, we need a center and he still has enough game to work out.
This isn't Chicago or Pittsburgh deciding to balance out their talent and cap by moving Kane/Malkin. This is a case of a struggling team trying to find an answer and a taker with his impatient and petty pandering through the media.
However, if you are right and the price is high, not even ridiculously high, I will be the first one to say no. Just like I said no when the price for Heatley included Staal. Just like Sather said no.
i don't see it working, id be willing to include grachev (although reluctantly) but i wouldn't give up a high draft pick and id expect rozsival to go the other way along with a depth defenseman coming back. its not happening
