I agree with you on Briere, but for what you said about Gomez, I think that applies to Buffalo. They're going to sign Briere and let Drury go, if you ask me, and I'm very wary of signing Drury to a big contract after a career year during a contract year. A year that he will probably never duplicate. I'd rather just go for the throat with Gomez, and put the kill on the Devils. But knowing them, Parise and Zajac will just fill the void. I mean, if you look at it, they have two great young centers in those two. They could realistically let Gomez go, although I don't see it happening unless someone - like the Rangers for instance - comes in an puts forth a ridiculous offer.

The Coyotes were streaking a month ago, but they've fallen back down to earth. The opening of the trade floodgates in Arizona is only days away.
The players that he offered have little to no value right now. If there was little more to it, maybe Girardi or Baranka, someone who actually has potential of sticking in the NHL as a regular, I'd say sure.

Immonen is 25 years old, didn't make the team out of camp, and has sucked this year with the pack. Pock is a fringe NHL defender at 25 years old. His time is running out. Lampman isn't even close to being an NHL regular, he'll be a career minor leaguer.

Boynton may be having an off year, but he's still leaps and bounds better than those three combined. It's another classic example of trash for a half-decent player.
