I think he is just joking !

I think a deal between Weber and Tikhonov could work out, Phoenix would certainly like to add a young puck moving dman which could help on the PP.

People need to think logically.

What are you talking about?! AK hasn't done anything, yeah he may of shown glimpses of some unreal play, but thats about it. Hes had enough chances here.. hes probably already maxed out his potential. I think it would be a good opportunity to take a chance on a player like this, yeah he hasn't scored more then 10 goals in the NHL. But I think he has a great to chance to be an offensive dynamo, probably way better then AK! I say we take the chance!..

I'm guessing this is hilarious sarcasm, but on the off chance that it's not. Kostisyn would have likely had his 3rd straight 20+ goal season in the NHL had he not been injured last year. He has 17 points in 35 playoff games. He's 25 years old heading into his 4th NHL season. He has the ability to pot 30 goals and is probably a lock for at least 20 if he can stay healthy. You want to give him up for a maybe?

If you've read this board enough you should know that there's people here that would actually do that.

Halak says hello from St. Louis.

Who was a better, more valuable player that we traded for two prospects.

Besides, we would then have $5 million in cap space if we wanted to trade for a top 6 player.

haha touche good sir.

You know what, with the goalie market how it is these days, and with PG looking long term I would say he did a decent job. I'm definitely going to miss halak don't get me wrong. But I'm excited for Eller, personally I think hes a better prospect then Viktor T, and more well rounded. As well we got Schultz, and from what i've read he should be NHL ready within 2-3 years. We have price, I know many of people don't believe he can rebound, but I think he can and will. He's young enough, and has all the tools that is needed to be a #1 guy in this league.

haha.. yeah I know some people here are quite.. shall we say "knowledgeable" about the direction of our team. Some people think its has easy as playing NHL 10. I enjoy it tho, but I'm happy about the goalie debate finally being over. Honestly that thread last basically 2 years!

The goalie debate will never be over. It's actually probably going to get much worse once the season starts.

yeah thinking about it your probably right. This site is pretty ridiculous, I guess you take the good with the bad. I want Halak to succeed tho, I just hope Price does better.

The proposal was AK for Tikhonov+another prospect. Many complained, which I understand. I like AK, he's got a rare skill set(hitting, scoring, etc). However, that other prospect could be kyle turris(it wont be, just saying). Honestly, the trade is incomplete, i'd reserve judgement till the proposal actually was finished. AK is obviously more talented than Tikhonov but IMO if AK has a good year, he's getting a raise and going younger and restocking the prospect cupboard isn't a bad idea. I wouldn't do it straight up, but I would consider Tikhonov+...especially cuz that + could mean anything lol

Tikhonov is a pk specialist, a good two-way player, he won't score big goals and won't score 30 goals per season. I really don't know why the Habs would go after him, he's only 20 and already *****in about the team who drafted him, despite he had a shot when Greztky was the Yote's coach.

It would not surprise me one bit, Gauthier would add Darche too. Then package Lapierre for a nobody, RDS/CKAC will go insane with so few active French player on the team. A couple will need fast English course ... LOL.

Especially if Halak get a shutout and Price allow 5 goals on opening game... I really do not want to see this situation.

I was thinking of Tikhonov + a defensive prospect. Obviously, it wouldn't be OEL or Gormeley but if Phoenix protected one more d-men and then we could choose one of the remaining guys.

I like AK too, but I don't see him having a future here and his trading value isn't that high, imo. If Martin and Gauthier don't have plans for him I would just as soon trade him for a couple of prospects and trade for a top 6 player with the cap space we have remaining (trade with a team that is over the cap and is looking for another team to take a salary dump).

This would hopefully gives us a 3rd line with better scoring potential - Eller and Tikhonov.

Montréal likes two-way players.

This is hilarious.

Sergei Kostitsyn got run out of town for making demands and going MIA, but you'll gladly accept Tikhonov who's proved even less and is already making demands.

Pure gold.

No! That's Avtsin's job! As for the AK trade for Tikhonov+, I'd like the + to be Boedker. Always was a fan of him and he and Eller might have great chemistry. Probably won't happen, but I'd be happy to give a little extra for this trade to happen. Turris is pretty much not going anywhere unless there is an overpayment. Chris Summers is also an interesting player, solid defenceman and, I believe, just started his pro career... Anyways, there are many players that I like in Phoenix, which is why they are my 2nd favorite team. Hell, if we can get any of the following players, I'd be extatic (provided the trade isn't lopsided in PHX's favor): OEL, Summers, Ross, Ahnelov, Turris, Boedker, Tikhonov, Goncharov, Hanzal, Korpikoski, Visentin, Gormley, MacLean, Upshall, Wolski and Vrbata. (Not Doan for I would love to see him finish his career as a Yote.)
