What would your team offer for Lydman and Saprykin?

EXACTLY. Saprykin has potential, sure, but you guys need some goals desperately right now. Not in a few years -
. You guys have sucked long enough and while I'll admit I don't know what the fans are like there, you just have to look at fans like Chicago's who have been disillusioned by their team's losing and trading away high-priced talent. I think that the same thing could happen to Calgary if they're not careful.
And besides, Nagy is a great young player. He's already proven that he can score goals and make plays. He's probably one of the top young left wingers in the game and you'd be lucky to pry him away from the 'Yotes. He's got considerable upside and is locked up to a reasonable contract. He works hard and is solid defensively. What's not to like?
But, I think the whole point is moot, because the Coyotes would not move him for that package. They're stocked on defense and have a lot of prospects like Saprykin anyways.
I just find it hard to believe that Flames fans wouldn't leap at the chance of getting a great young player like Ladislav Nagy. The kid is awesome!
