I would've like to resign him when he left, but not for 4M. And he's gotten older and more fragile since then. I think this is a classic case of Eklund making things up.

could have sworn that a poster on these boards had proposed this in a trade proposal thread in the past two days.

Ding Ding Ding. I am one of the VERY FEW Blues fans who like Afinogenov. McKee for Afinogenov. I would do this trade. We get 500K more in salary and we get a scorer. He has 314 points in 521 games. Yes he has an injury thing. but so does McKee. Well McKee did. He did good this year. But I would do this just to get the goals. We get a spot for one of our many young defensive prospects. Wagner for myself.

I'd definitely bring Jay back at the right price. If he is willing to restructure his contract he'd be here in a heartbeat. He's nothing but a class act and a hell of a guy.

I believe you can't restructure contracts in the new CBA

he may be all that, but he isn't a great defenseman any more. He has lost a step

Should we mention all the crap Eklund has said over the years that he pulled out of his ass.

In a credibility battle, it's Strickland over Eklund by a mile and a half, and I'm not even that big of a Strickland fan.

What is going to happen if we actually trade for Spezza? I will laugh. Then cry. Then jump for joy.

I have been on Maxim's tail for over a year.

I would do McKee for Maxim...but I would want a mid round pick (4th) back with Maxim.

Not that I expect that to change anything since people like to ignore facts when hating Eklund.
Define Correct. Stating that player X will be traded to team A, B, C or D.... Or stating that UFA X will sign with A, B, C, or D....

I am sorry, but I don't call that correct. I call that throwing **** at the wall.

I don't like Eklund and I don't like Garriott for the same reason. They post stuff to hear themselves speak and generate traffic to their websites/paper. Generated solely by greed and w/ no real inside information then a gut feeling - which quite frankly you and I could do and may do a better job of it.

If you have true inside information list the team and the players ahead of time. Dont pull this Spezza on the trading blocks crap. Because ALL ****ING PLAYERS ARE AVAILABLE FOR TRADE.

True, but bringing him in for possibly a Numminen role as a #6/#7 provided he could come at a discount would be great, especially as a lockerroom presence.

It would replace our 4th we trade for Mason. But even it was a later pick like 5th or 6th. I'd still take it. I'd have offense then a defensemen who we could replace easier.

I agree. I was just saying if we could get him at a discount by restructuring his contract I would go for it, but like another poster said, I think the CBA prohibits restructuring, so in that case I'd probably pass on bringing him back.

I dont think the CBA will allow him to restructure his contract.

1. Oooppps...

2. My problem isn't that he puts it out there. It is that he "Has insider information" and publishes crap he knows isn't real or true (trade rumors specifically). You and I don't go around putting stuff we know to be BS out on the internet for personal gain.

Lets face facts, when trades occur, it is usually kept under lock and key until the news has been broken to the players. Even at the trade deadline, while we know who is likely available and who is chasing those players - we have no real idea of what will be coming back in the trade or which team in the end will come down with the soon to be UFA.

For example the last two trades (Mayers and Mason) there was no media leak. It was shocking to everyone. (While fans figured Mason was available - no one broke the deal ahead of time - which is what often happens).

From a personall stand point, I don't like Rumor mongering. Because for the most part it is bogus.
