You got to be kidding me if you pick all those D over Bouw. Weber???? The guy wasn't even the top pairing and played 18-19 min. a game. Bouw shut down top offenses and played a league leading 27 min. per game. It's not always about offense, Bouw is great defensively.
Bouw > Weber
Bouw > Green - 23 of his 56 points were on the PP. Green's points would be similar to Bouw's if he was in FLA while Bouw is better defensively.
Bouw > burns
Like the other poster, we'll just agree to disagree. Everyone has there opinions :-).
Just adding... find me any defenseman, other then Lidstrom, in North America who puts up the numbers Sanguinetti did. I don't care what level it is, 29 goals and 70 points and over a PPG as a defenseman is sick. And Del Zotto is just as impressive. If you trade THAT you're nuts. We have potentially the two highest scoring defensemen for the next decade.
Tuts is a downgraded version of Bou, so that works. All 3 goalies you listed are pretty useless. You are better off giving them a 5th round pick.
I'd like to keep Dawes because I think he'll be pretty special.
But how about everyone's favorite goal-per-game forward Korps?
And another player would have to be added, probably someone along the lines of Sang.
So Sang, Korps and Tuts for Bouw and a second rounder.
I like Korpi better, since I think he brings more to the table than Dawes. However, as I said earlier, if Boston decides to build a package around Kessel, as he's been rumored to be on the block, the Rangers won't be able to match that offer.
i really wonder how much he is looking for, or if money isnt the issue and he just wants out. I dont think we have the assets to trade for him/what fl wants (probably a combination of dubi/staal/cherepanov/1st rounders). I know it's still kind of taboo, but offer sheet him 30 mill/6 years, cap hit of 5.0 but 6.0 on the comp scale, we give up 2 1sts, 2nd, 3rd. He's well worth the trouble.
They'd be up there but I duno about best. There will be Doughty-Johnson in LA, and Pietrangelo-Johnson in St Louis.
Lots of nice potential here but of the four only Erik Johnson has proved his value so far. JBo is already an all-star and Stall is a rising star. There's already hard questions about Jack Johnson's long term potential in LA.
