Tim Kerr was done by 91, Gillies by 84, Graves by 2000, Leclair by 2005, etc.
As for Gaborik, I just don't see LA as an ideal trading partner. Williams has to come back in deal because of the cap hit for next year and Penner is a UFA so LA doesn't have any benefit in dealing him for anything other than picks.
Would LA do a Gaborik for Toffoli, Muzzin, and a 1st
or am I drunk? Is that even something the Rangers would want? Muzzin shoots lefty unfortunately.
As for Boyle would Chicago be interested in him for Bolland (cap move)? What about San Jose for either Handzus or Burish?
Or the craziest idea yet; would San Jose take B. Boyle/Asham for D. Boyle? They'd save a lot in cap room.
No they wouldn't.
