Very OT-(Jeff Carter)

With the trade season heating up, I again just came across that last season the Flyers offered Jeff Carter AND a 1st round pick to Toronto for Tomas Kaberle. Kaberle invoked his no trade clause (thank goodness

Just got me thinking about the need for patience/restraint during the trade period. We all want to see the Habs make a splash at the deadline because a) we want to win the Cup now and b) the trade deadline is entertaining. But boy would we regret it if we shipped off some of our young talent and they blossom to star heights in a couple of years.

apologies for this pretty useless post...but I just shake my head at last year's Carter proposal.

We still have to remember that it was a rumour. Although one of the stongest one out there, since it never happened, we'll probably never know if it was 100% true and exactly what other details or people involved.

Briere had less value than Carter, older and makes a lot more money.

Yeah Carter and a first for Kaberle would have been brutal. It made sense for the Flyers at the time since Richards developed into a very potent first line center while they still had Briere. I guess they thought Carter was wasted on a 3rd line role. Amazing how rapidly things change.

I'm not sure if that Carter rumor was true. At the time it seemed like the Toronto media were just making up stuff as an excuse to bash those who wouldn't waive their no trade clause a la Sundin. Its one of those Leafs rumors their fans never forget like the Lindros and fax machine saga...give me a break.

a little OT to the OT.

I see us packaging Komi and others to get vinny, but we also pick up Kaberle. both trades will have to have some salary going the other way but i also see a couple of other trades for picks coming back to us to afford both players.

gone will be
pleks
komi
higgins

plus all the little extra's that make up the trade.

does anyone think that S.Kost could be used as trade baite to Edmonton to see if they can get Cole?

gagne and S.kost back together again?

i dunno, just a thought.

Carter arguably has a top 5 wrist shot in the entire NHL

Lets just say Lapierre doesn't...

Wasn't a rumor-- it was a real deal on the table that Kaberle turned down. I've watched Flyers broadcasts this season during which the team announcers interviewed Holmgren and he said that he's now obviously really glad he did not make the deal.

Edmonton would jump all over that. We'd be stupid to do it.

Cripes Sergei has 1 less point in 7 less games...and he's ten years younger. And he's not a UFA next year.
