Lupul on trading block? (November 22nd)

Probably BS.

The St. Louis Blues are desperate for some offensive help, and are rumored to be interested in acquiring Philadelphia Flyers forward Joffrey Lupul.

Wonder who they'd be willing to part with? I don't see Erik Johnson leaving, even though he's injured, but perhaps Jackman? I don't watch the Blues, and I hear Jackman's not that special, but he won the Calder Trophy so he should be an upgrade on D.

I'd want some offense. A better winger for carter. Too many Phantoms on the roster. I don't really know what they have thats even half way decent beisdes kariya, keith mcdonalnd and boyes.

I think they'd want to give up a defenseman and/or a defensive forward roster player/prospect, but I started a thread on their boards to see what Blues fans thought of this rumor.

Maybe Lupul for Jackman?

There are a lot of intriguing players on the Blues or in their system, but I see most of them as either unreachable for the Flyers to acquire or not fitting any organizational need.

I wouldn't be sad to see him go. I'd take a decent pick for him and sign Shanny

i'm all for moving lupul, cause it makes the most sense, but to the blues would mean little sense.

I say let him go. We can probably get something decent in return.

This was also on that page:
Quote:
Forward Claude Lemieux, who was trying to make a comeback to the NHL, is now rumored to be signing a contract within the next two weeks with the Worcester Sharks, the San Jose Sharks AHL affiliate. Lemieux played a few games with the China Sharks of the Asia League, but has now left the team. The China Sharks are also affiliated with San Jose.
I really hope he doesnt make it back. Im not a big fan.

I like Stempniak and wouldn't mind getting him, but talk about a model of inconsistency. I would think the Blues would want to add to their forwards rather than take away from it. They'll probably part with Woywitka, but he even passed through waivers without being claimed. Plus we still have Kuks as a 6th D, which is what Woywitka is currently.

Perron might be a bit much, but if we can land him that would be awesome even if it meant losing a player like Upshall.

It's funny because I was actually thinking that Lupul would be the most logical guy to deal. He's falling out of favor due to his lackluster play and is a pretty one dimensional player. If he's not scoring he's totally useless.

I'm not sure how much cap room he'll loosen up though. I'd like to see a young goalie come back in a package.

I'm fine with Lupul's play right now. He hasn't looked as good as last year, but he's going out and taking the body more and making the right plays on and off the puck. What I'd actually really like to see is Briere come back and center Upshall and Lupul. It keeps his minutes down a bit to heal up a bit and gives Lupul and Upshall the chance to pick up more points with someone who can pass and move the puck. They also wouldn't be seeing top offensive guys or good defensemen. It'd make the Flyers extremely difficult to deal with.

I do. It just sucks that he's the most practical to be traded at this point in time if we want something of worth back.

i like lupul too, but if he keeps slumping, his value will plummet. if we can get something of value for him, i'm all for it.

EJ? Yeah, not happening but I'd crap my pants if we did. Marek Schwarz, Ben Bishop, or a guy like Stempniak or David Backes?

Please no.


Anyway, this sucks.
I am a big fan of Joffrey and my girl just got his jersey.
Epic fail.

It sucks.. but it may have to happen.
My only question is.. Why St. Louis and what would we realisitcally get back?
Backes isnt appealing at all to me.
T.J Oshie might be someone I'm interested in.
Other than that, I dont know.

Jackman wouldn't be enough, yes he won the Calder Trophy, but that's not enough. He's not as good as that may indicate.
