Can't trade Coburn because even though he isn't progressing as we hoped after the 08 season, he is still a top 4 defenseman. With Ryan Parent having back issues, something that could hamper his career, we can't move Coburn at this point without getting a top 4 defenseman in return. I like Mueller and would move something to get him, but the Flyers aren't in a position to be dealing roster players, nor do we have the prospects and draft picks to be very active at the deadline.
Thats not what Homer would do though. Personally, Id rather not trade anyone, but if we are 5-8 seeding, Homer will make some kind of trade. So far, as our GM, he has never not traded during the trade deadline. Its what he does.
This has to be one of the most entertaining threads I have ever seen, this must have takin you hours to put together. Good job.
- Carolina deals Ray Whitney and Stephane Yelle to Colorado for TJ Hensick and a 3rd rounder.
Not a bad deal but would want to dump someone like Svatos or Tucker as well.
- Colorado deals a 3rd rounder to Washington for Shaone Morrisonn.
Deal, no take backs. I know we dont need any defencemen but he is a big, good stay at home defencemen. I'm pretty sure we could move some body's around to make room for him. I just cant see Washington wanting to give him up for so cheep though.
"Morrisonn has begun to prove himself as a tough, stay-at-home defenceman. During the 2008 NHL playoffs, Morrisonn played every game with a broken jaw and a separated shoulder as the team's number one defenceman."
