Gauthier could target Brad Boyes, open to trading Sergei?

Sorry I cannot provide a link. It comes from the Insider section of ESPN.com, a paid section which provides usually pretty credible rumors from their reporters of all sports. You either pay a low monthly fee or subscribe to their magazine and also get the insider for more.

The fourth period must be an "insider" too

He's as much of a 40 goal scorer as Gionta. This is the second time in his career he completely falls off the map after having a good season...and he only has 5 career seasons.

I hope people don't think Boyes is the panacea. There's risks involved... He's got a nice track record but he's not gritty and he's inconsistent defensively.

You're basically getting a sniper that's not scoring right now. He's probably just in a bad slump. But it's still funny that St-Louis that badly needs a sniper would trade their sniper.

cap wise you are probably right and more I think about it more I think it will be difficult for Gauthier to make any major deals..

It will be, but it's not impossible. We saved some money from Markov being gone for so long. We can probably bring back someone who has 2 million left pro-rated on their contract.

We can always put Metro on waivers to help us breathe a little. Hopefully Laraque ****s-off and we'll be fine. Who knows maybe we'll move Spacek or Mara(which will be easier) which also give us some space.

Moving cheap salaries for larger ones clearly doesn't make sense, but there's always a way to bring someone in.

Anyway our problem is not scoring, we have a solid top 6. We just need to bring some grit to the bottom 6. Hopefully we can get both Armstrong and Crombeen at the deadline.

He's a decent fighter, so you'd figure he'd throw his body around more.

Not true, money was not saved at all while Markov was gone. You are only allowed to go over the cap while the injured player is on LTIR, once that injured player returns you have to fit his salary back in.

Yep, even Gauthier said it himself. After he made the Moore trade, a journalist asked him if he tried anything else and he said that with the very little amount of free space, it was extremely hard for him to make any major deals.

People just see "Drafted 5th overall" and "Drafted 291st overall" and it's automatically a fore gone conclusion that the player drafted first is better. Classic HF mentality/stupidity.
Listen bucko, enough with this Price/Halak crap. Sticky this comment. Just because we say Price's potential is better than Halak's DOES NOT mean Price is better. Halak is playing better NOW and Price is struggling. In the big picture, every NHL scout will tell you that Price has the higher ceiling and it IS SHOWN IN THE FACT THAT he's a top 5 pick. That means his POTENTIAL is higher than a goalie drafted 291st overall. I repeat, this does not mean that Price is currently better than Halak. Print it out and frame it, take it to the bank, write it on your eyelids. Enough is enough.

A thing that you dont understand...

Brian Gionta: scorer
Andrei Kostityn: scorer
Benoit Pouliot: scorer
Michael Cammalleri: scorer
......
Boyes: scorer

True. He is not among the most consistent pointgetters in the league.

His five seasons, extrapolated to 82 games each, show:
69
47
65
72
46

Looks a lot like Plekanec, except for the obvious difference THIS year. On the other hand, a year ago, we would have switched these two guys without blinking an eye.

That being said, I don't think that Sergei is a good fit for a one-for-one trade. St. Louis probably wouldn't find the return high enough, and the Habs would need to shed salary.

Nathan Horton looks like a better player on paper and was a much higher draft pick within the first round of their respective draft years, but what I am wondering is this: WHY would Florida have this guy on the block?? He's young, good sized, not TOO expensive and fairly productive. Are there any big negatives on him?

Once the guys come back you have to be under the cap. You only have cushion while they are hurt.
