Could we trade for Gagner or Eberle? (Discuss all trades here, if you must)

But forget how he actually played, he honestly wants to start a discussion about moving a player that just signed an extremely long term deal where the ink has barely dried on the contract.
Only thing that can be said:
....and a lot of it.
I have seem to have gathered this much
Bern you have to understand that we can't just bring in player x and y and ship out players a b c d. There are dynamics like chemistry that has been developed on the ice and in the locker room, that there are team players who buy in and work together (which is VITAL to Torts system) and there are those who get by without giving the effort every night (who would NOT succeed OR be welcome here).
Your CLB trade is preposterous. Why in gods name would Columbus trade their 2nd overall pick if they are going back into rebuilding mode? The whole point of moving Nash for them is to get more young talent and build a team from within with lots of youth playing together for years. The rangers would much rather find a player like Iginla at the deadline if we're lucky (1 year left on contract) or cross your fingers that you can pry Shane Doan away for a 1-2 year deal instead of making it impossible to resign the 7-8 players we have expiring contracts over the next 2 season by picking up that trainwreck of a contract in Nash.
The Edmonton trade makes no sense for us. We have a big core of players that just competed hard and came close to playing for the Cup and you want to trade them away for futures? This team is competitive now, and trading MDZ and Boyle completely depletes our depth.
You are trying to do way too much. Have some faith in how the front office has been building this team over the past couple years, will you?
