You'll move Dubinsky? Way to go out on a limb. I never said I wouldn't move Dubinsky, and I've already said before that I'd be willing to move Del Zotto in the right deal, just not as some throw-in in a package deal for a guy like Nash. I also specifically mentioned moving Stepan as a poor decision. Yet you've said you wouldn't let Stepan get in the way of acquiring Bobby Ryan.

I also said I would explore the trade market later in the summer or after camp to see if more options opened up. Granted, it's probably easier to argue against points I never made.



Ah yes, because we all know that being in agreement with our management always plays out so well.

Hence your @ss. It’s BS! the guy hasn’t played a full season in 3 yrs and he’s
hitting record #s. only in your world.

Not just the deadline, but the month of February leading up to the deadline. How about Downie or even Gill?
Dom Moore was had for 2nd rounder. Johnny Oduya? we did nothing and we paid for it!

What was your point? If I don’t agree with picking up Mueller or Latendresse that I’d be down for every
asinine 4-1 trade I could conjure up? Talk about making up points to argue against!

I’ve embraced what management is intending to do, which is acquire 2-3 big pieces over the next
few seasons. Last year was the first move (Richards) this year....
