If we can get Girardi for Babchuk the guy that's arrested for indecent exposure after running naked through an Apex neighborhood in celebration will be me. I think last year was an aberration for the guy and on a defense that has more then himself and Marc Staal he'll put up some solid numbers. He's 24 and he's a legit top 4 defenseman with a good two-way game and good skating ability, what's not to like?

Well, I'd join in too but living up in Canada I don't even want to think what would happen if I stepped outside of my igloo in the nude.

Something along the lines of the reaction from the esteemed Mr Costanza here?

if you are driving drunk on the beltline with your head out of your car passenger side window yelling at the cars, the yes, it is very possible you'll get arrested

Ditto here in Maine. This sounds like a Hands Across America thing going here.

We can put an end to this one. JR as of 45 minutes ago said this is over. "We've moved on." See other thread.

what would you guys want from van for babchuck ... would something around hansen and a draft pick work

hansen is a young speedy, gritty winger who i tihnk could fit on your 3rd line, he has lots of 2 way ability and potential

Scouting Report: from sportsnet.ca

Assets Possesses a wealth of hockey sense and playmaking ability from the wing position. Is also a defensively aware player who makes his linemates better.

potential Slick two-way winger.

But not just any pucks, they must be Anti-Anton brand pucks.

That is they must get along with others, not abandon their fellow pucks, not put themselves above others or overvalue themselves, not bolt to other leagues, and must accept an assignment to the AHL if they don't perform well for Carolina.

You know, pucks happy for the opportunity to be used in the NHL, not petulant entitlement-oriented pucks.

Do those even exist? Oh yah, I think those pucks could also be called Chad LaRose and Craig Adams. Yah know, happy as hell to be in the NHL and WILLING to pay their dues at any level to get their chance. And when they do, they seize it and find themselves with multiyear NHL deals because they kept their mouths shut and just played hockey.

What a bizarre position we find ourselves in. Take away the name and the history, and based on the numbers and the performance we have a very valuable d-man who may only improve with time, coming off a breakout year- or a very marketable commodity that should bring real return.

I just wish we could improve his apparent sensitive psyche - and our ability to handle sensitive people - because what ought to be a big asset is fading away.

Anton - you just need to set the pride aside, sign and come back, play hard and show people you can do it another year. Then you can command the respect (and earn the contract) you feel you deserve.

He came back this past season to earn a contract. After he performs well past expectations, he's met with "Great job! Now do it again, and then we might pay you"

Why should Anton believe next year would be any different?

Exactly. He has one year left on his prisoner status before he becomes either RFA arbitration eligible or flat out UFA..... I can't remember which would apply.

The bottom line is that if he wants to play in the NHL next season, all he has to do is sign the tender. Carolina isn't going to play him obviously and they're not going to pay him to do nothing. They would simply have to deal him..... but that would mean the same price he was paid last year would apply again.

I don't think Anton has faith he can do what he did last year again this year and wants to cash in on that while the iron is hot.... and one could hardly blame him. 16 goals in as few games as he did it in was an absolute feat.
