Joe Thornton

If you've been over to the trade rumors board you know what I'm talking about. I know it's unlikely but let's have some fun. Boston would be interested in Pitkanen, Carter, and Gagne. Although Gagne's stock has fallen off significantly, I think he would be a good enough of a base of a deal to pull it off. I think Boston would realize that Gagne was playing in a defensive oriented system and know that he could produce more in a more open system. Gagne alone would not be enough. Perhaps if we threw in another player it could get done. Candidates are Carter (no way), Richards (maybe), Radivojevic (no enough), Sharp (no enough), and Markov (maybe). Not gonna happen, but what would you give up?

Why trade away youth when it is lacking in our system?

Thornton is 1 year older than Gagne.

How about Gagne and Roenick but we pick up half of his salary. 3.5 for Roenick and 3 for Gagne isn't bad for Boston. Perhaps throw in Radivojevic as well.

Add in Burke and i would do it. lol I dont know about giving them gange and a nother young player. That would lessin our stregnth at wing.( which already isnt that good) and make us too strong at center.

And how exactly is youth lacking in our system? We have some really good prospects and excellent young players on the team already. Just because we have a lot of veterans doesn't mean we don't have youth as well.

you guys are expecting the Bruins to take on salary? please. this is Jermemy Jacobs we are talking about here who is probably sitting in his townhouse over looking Niagra Falls not caring at all about the state of the team. he has money in his pocket and that is all that matters to him.

Handzus + Carter + 2nd for Thornton. They want anymore than that, and I am not interested.

flyerfreak, I know I know! I love Handzus, but he's just so damn tradeable! Not in the sense that he isn't worth much to us; other teams want him bad. I have to say that I would love to steal Joe Thornton away, though. I think that is a pretty even deal, though. Even after their playoff debacle this year, Thornton is still their franchise player, and (most) teams don't just give them away.

If we went after a big gun...I'd hope for Palffy or Pronger but I'd prefer not to give up youth...and definately wouldn't trade Zeus.

I'm sure that the Bruins are just jumping to trade Thornton...especially to an Eastern Conference rival that already has a former Bruin on the roster. What are they waiting for!?!?!

Seriously, this deal would make absolutely no sense for the B's, pointless to discuss.

Agree, makes no sense from either side actually.
We have excellent talent up the middle for the future, why sell the farm for one player - yes Lindros still hurts.
