For us, but not for the rangers. They need defense too, and for that reason I can't see them being good trade partners with us. Bet we're looking outside the eastern conference anyways, why make the rangers any beter?
This thread starts and ends with Erik Cole. Ruutu could also be had but everyone knows he's too fragile to play that style without getting hurt. Anyways, it would likely take an overpayment to get him since we gave up Ladd to get him just a few short months ago. What a stupid trade.
Cole for Daley would interest me. Daley sounds like he'd fit into our system very nicely.
Done. Send the paperwork over. I'm thinking Rutherford's got bigger plans for Cole, though.
Ya, because that makes tons of sense from Carolina's standpoint. We don't need any more forwards, we need to unload 1-2 so trading one and getting another in return does nothing for us. There's no interest in him anyways, don't need anymore small, soft forwards.
I'm sure it would from CAR point of view. However, Cole is a UFA in a year, and I beleive that Tyutin is locked up long term. There is no way in hell that the Rangers are adding anything significant to a Tyutin/Cole swap.
Ryan Malone, Mike Knuble (i'm assuming he's a power forward because of his size, correct me if i'm wrong), Guillame Latendresse is probably available for the right price, Steve Bernier if any team is willing to take a chance on him, Drew Stafford but only for tough top 4 defensemen, Todd Bertuzzi if Nieds and Selanne come back (I'm only guessing this because the Ducks will probably want to sign Perry), uh...are Nik Antropov and Alexei Ponikarovsky power forwards? Some guys are big but don't play like power forwards. Brian Gionta tries his best to be a power forward but is just too small
Anyway that's just off the top of my head right now.
Whats the chance that a team would have to take with him? I know hes a RFA but how much do you think it would take to get him out of buffalo or what would you need to trade for him? I dont know much about him but the Rangers could use a good power forward so im just curious.
