Florida trades Weiss and a 3rd for a 1st, 4th, stajan and ryder.
Calgary trades Stajan, Bourque, and Matt Pelech for Stephen Weiss and Mark Stuart
Boston trades Michael Ryder and a 4th for Pelech, Bourque and a 3rd.
Not enough to Calgary. No interest in adding Mark Stuart, were good for d right now....
Too much to Florida
Too much to Boston
If were giving up bourque and stajan + more I want Joe Colborne
why on earth would Boston add Colborne on top of what their already giving up. Not a prayer of us adding. Bourque's production is the same as Ryder so it's not like we're gaining a ton of offence. So how does a 3rd and a so so prospect make up for the first, 4th and Stuart we're adding? Switch Pelech with McCabe and I'd think about it.
I guess Bjustad was a little high, What about another prospect like Mcfarland?
hmmm....see with mcfarland i know he's underperforming, but i would rather see him bust on my team if he is going to than to watch him flourish on another and saying wow juniors really didn't matter. i dont know, the trade is certainly not bad, but i wouldn't do it,that's just me.
That's what happens when you lose your confidence.
I cant wait till he once again heats up and flames fans get of his jockstrap.
Just at the start of this year a good chunk of flames fans thought he was our top offensive player, we as fans are way to fast to jump on players for having struggles from time to time.
Flames fans are right for jumping on Bourque's back for being a lazy floater. He's been doing that the entire season other than his beginning of season hot streak. If he was genuinely trying to work through a cold streak/lack of confidence/etc, we wouldn't be seeing such a lackluster effort on the ice.
