Getting Gaborik for Ellis, Wilson, and 2 1st would make us a better team today as well.
That's speculation that he wasn't going to be a Pred at a cheaper price, unless you've got bugs in Murray's office.
I like Fisher, like I said a couple weeks ago when he was brought up in a thread. I'm not dissing on the guy. I'm on the fence about the trade, because 1) giving up a 1st, when we have little offensive potential in our system, 2) Fisher's salary-- he's got 10milion left on his contract, it also means we'll be over the midpoint unless we cut salary, and 3) If he's the guy that's going to help us score goals in the playoffs. We shall see how #3 plays out.
replying to your additions after my first reply..
1. that first we gave up wasnt lilkely to help us before 2014 at the earliest. This franchise needs a playoff run before then. If we get it, we will be in shape to replace any talent we might otherwise be missing.. if not... heaven help us
2. Where do you get 10 million? His cap hit is $4.2 but actual money is 4 then 3. He's owed about 1.3 for the rest of this year
3. As you said, we will see, but hes certainly better than standing pat
