Best offseason move ?

besides a potential sundin signing, what is the best offseason move?


my vote goes to the zerdhev trade. although they gave a huge contract to redden, I think the rangers really made a good move with Zerdhev.

pretty straight forward question, but I'd like to see your opinion... discuss.

I agree. This is easily the move that will have the most impact.

Frankly, getting Tanguay for what we gave up is downright cheeky. If he gets 75-80 points, and helps keep the powerplay energized, he's going to make BG look like a genius.

But if we lose in the playoffs because we still lack grit up front and depth on the blueline, we'll all be talking about the $5 million of cap space he could have used to fix those problems. Although, fixing them from within is probably the right move.

I like the Tanguay trade as well at least from a Habs fan's perspective. It's rife with potential... rife!

I hate people saying we lost because of a lack of grit and I think or D is fine (and so does Gainey)

Back on topic: I'd say Hossa is the second best move, with the Jeff finger signing runing away as the best move

Huet and Campbell to Chicago.

It might not look good in a few years, but right now they are looking like a real Stanley Cup contender.

Havlat - Lang - Ladd
Kane - Toews - Sharp
Byfuglien - Bolland - Skille
Grinders

Campbell - Seabrook
Duncan - Wisniewski
Barker - Sopel
Janik

Huet
Khabby

BGL.

I'm lying. He sucks. I don't care if he can fight.

Hossa, clearly.

Also, I think the Leafs signing of Hagman was at a good price and length and could turn out to be a great contract.

Were the Penguins missing grit when they got eliminated by OTT??..No, they were lacking Experience and they made it to the cup the year after..

They would have resigned their ''gritty'' players like Ruutu and Roberts if they felt they were really important for a cup run.

Let's face it, if Price hadn't chocked in the POs, we would have made it past the Flyers and nobody would be talking about this ''grit'' crap.

We already have gritty players btw with Lapierre, Kosto, Begin and now they'll be even better because Laraque will be there as well.

Clearly Huet is going to be.. You don't sign a guy to a contract like that to play backup when there are ****tier goalies available.

Woooahh..easy there buddy.

There's way too many question marks to call them a Stanley Cup Contender.

Lang a first liner?..
Havlat?..Would you bet on him having a full season??
Andrew Ladd? Not quite a top line of a Stanley Cup contender there..

They are a PO Potential team, not Cup Contender.

I like the Naslund move, it's risky but i think he still has it.

Yeah, but Khabibulin has a bigger contract than that.

We have 7 million available now even with Tanguay so that makes no sense.

My choice for best move would be the 3 that Edmonton made this summer to get Cole, Brule and Visnovsky. Upgrade over Torres, upgrade over Pitkanen and Brule could be a huge upgrade over Stoll in the near future.
