Byfuglien/Ladd Available

I know it's a player most people want...I think it be its own thread for fans to discuss because he's someone people really want.

As per Kevin Allen on Twitter:

Dustin Byfuglien is definitely in play as the Blackhawks sort through how to eliminate their salary cap issues this summer.

EDIT: Bobby Mac has now confirmed that Ladd is in play as well discuss.

Pretty much like Halak...They are trying to sell him when he's at his highest value.

Would look nice on our 2nd line.

Buff - gomez - gionta
AK/Pouliot/Eller - Pleks - Cammy


I like it, although our centers can still change, and I expect that they will.

I say we should get in the mix. He'd fill a HUGE void on our team.

He would be a great addition. I would love to see PG grab him.

Although I do not feel that he will replicate his success with the Habs, he will definitely fill a major need on this team. We are sorely lacking in big and rugged forwards. He will create more space on the ice for our smaller forwards and will improve our GF because of parking his big body in front of the net. I think the Hawkes will be asking for prospects in return because of how cheap they will come.

Sergei K, Yanick Weber and a 2nd?

He's locked in, he's still young, he's huge, and he's coming into his prime.

1) Trade Hammer somewhere
2) Trade Andrei Kostitsyn, Sergei Kostitsyn and 27th overall for Dustin Penner and 31st overall (I know it's sadly just a dream)
3) Trade 31st overall (+ if needed) for Byfuglien

I really think that we need more than 1 top 6 forward with size in our top 6. Of course, a lot will depend if PG decides to move Hammer and I'm not sure it is in the plans at the point.

If we can AT LEAST move the brothers and acquire a player ala Byfuglien (in a separate deal for salary concerns), I will be fine with that.

To save money. Sounds pretty damn obvious to me they won't be willing to take any salary in a trade.

I would die for the Buttfugler to be on this team. Probably homerism though, I love the guy, he's one of my favorite players.

Get it done PG!!!

He'd be far better on a line with Pleks and Cammer than he would with Gionta and Gomez.. I think Pleks (if he resigns) and Cammer needs alot more size than the first line.

That's actually quite funny. I've saw a lot of proposals involving the 27th overall and pretty much everybody was fine with that but 31st overall (+) isn't fair because it is a 2nd round pick?

You do realize there's only a 4 spots difference?

That's my thoughts too.

If we are to acquire only 1 top 6 forward with size, there's no doubt in my mind that he should be used on the Cammy line.

If we were to acquire 2 top 6 forward with size (unlikely), it would be perfect!

My only problem is that he had the worst +/- on a stacked team, do you think that will improve playing for the Habs?

I like him but something tells me he's a head case and won't work-out in Montreal ....

I would like Sharp.

Plekanec
Gomez
Sharp
Eller


I say that's a pretty good team down the middle.

out of all the players that get the "omg get him!" hype on this forum, this is the guy i'd want the most on the team. Really fills a hole and we might be good partners for Chicago especially since we're in the East.

I think its more of a lack of size issue on our team, that makes us want him more.. than what his stats are. He's a big guy who can play too.. and he's not afraid to go to the net. Our top two lines lack an extra winger that can do that.. I mean we only have GIONTA who does it on a constant basis

I think if you put him with our responsible centers, that's not an issue.

Gomez and Plekanec are not "scary" defensively.

I'd definitely trade Kost and/or Pouliot for him. Of course they'd want more.

but I can see us going :

Byf - Gomez - Gio
Camm - Plek - Eller

(or Byf at RW on 2nd line and Eller at LW on 1st)

He's probably the 3rd most overrated player in the NHL after the recent playoffs...after Lucic and Phaneuf.

For a reasonable price I'd take him, but I'm sure Chicago would be looking for a top 10 pick or late 1st and a blue chip young player.
