We were too small last year as it was (and Sather clearly knows it given the depth signings of Voros and Rissmiller). And no doubt they'll be looking to move Prucha. And you want to bring on Gionta?!?!
The Devils have revamped their forwards and it looks to me like most of their fans think Gionta is the odd man out and their best trading chip in the search for an upgrade to their defense. Tyutin is perfect for them, and Gionta being reunited with Gomez would be perfect for us.
I understand the chances of this happening in actuality are ZERO, but I think it's a deal that makes sense for both teams.
Along the same lines, I was thinking of Tyutin for Geoffrey Lupul. The Flyers need a defenseman,. We need a young goalscoring winger. Of course, the same issues will make this a non starter.
coach's system calls for low scoring games so I think they will be keeping their blueliners.
NYR could do worse than bert as long as he stands in front of the net, deflects pucks and gets the garbage goals. His size is a nice asset for the current set of forwards too. The reward of PP time could also entice him to gotham.
also if NYR are going to trade anyone make it outside the division please
