atlanta isn't dealing ladd...wheeler maybe but no way they trade their captain.

loves CT's potential but thats a deal i make pretty quickly

Atlanta's going to be really focused on getting Wheeler, Ladd and Bogosian all locked up.

And also I think Wheeler would rather play in Atlanta given we have given him first line minutes as opposed to New York where he will have a reduced role behind Gaborik and probably Callahan.

http://blogs.ajc.com/atlanta-thrashe...thrashers_blog

Also regarding the defenseman. Oduya would get traded first to create more cap room if required. Hainsey played really well last season and also has a modified no trade clause.



Thanks for the laugh. Ladd is not going anywhere as he is captain and Wheeler will cost Ryan Callahan as we need a RW in return.



I would like Wolski in Atlanta but I don't think Dudley would bite. We already had a similar player in Nic Bergfors and he didn't work out. I don't think Dudley wants to get burned twice by trading for floater.
Thanks for the info. I was under the impression the Thrashers were cap floor team. Do you have any kind of rough estimate of how much ownership is usually willing to spend on salaries?

And yeah, I figured it'd be one of Oduya or Hainsey, but I thought Hainsey was under serious fire in Atlanta and was on the way out. Oduya makes just as much sense, though.

I think this thread was created after the OP watched Team USA's first game, where they rolled a line of Kreider-Stepan-Wheeler.

Kreider didn't play with Steps, I don't think.

Valuewise - what would we need to give up for getting both Wheeler & Boogosian in one deal?
Not at all saying it should be done - just seeing what you all think we would need to offer...

Oh, maybe not. I didn't see the game, but I thought I read that somewhere. You're probably right.

One does not exclude the other, Wheeler is RW, Kreider LW

XX - Richards - Gabby
Dubi - AA - Cally
Kreider - Stepan - Wheeler
Feds - Boyle - Prust
Avery/Hagelin, Discounted goon not named Boogaard

Fill in the XX

Forgot where Wolski, Christ, Drury and MZA wind up

He had his chance to play in NY a few years back but chose Boston over the Rangers. From what i remember we offered him the same contract Boston did.

Well I hope that life changing decision he made paid off, getting shipped to one of the worst hockey markets in the NHL.

But I would still take him...

Boston guaranteed him a starting job in the NHL. We wouldn't commit to that.

I don't think you'll get him away from Atlanta at this point. He was solid for them down the stretch, and he's likely to be an important piece moving forward. Plus, they're in limbo right now in terms of franchise stability, so they desperately need to retain a quality roster -- if only to make themselves more appealing to buyers.

Just a thought - Wheeler + Boogosian + 2011 3rd rounder (NYR have none) for Wolski, MDZ, Grachev/Werek and a 2011 2nd round pick (Atlanta has none) + 2012 2nd rounder

Close?

I don't mind Wheeler, but why do Ranger fans continue to want more 2nd & 3rd liners? We already have too many of them. His size is nice, but I don't recall that he even uses that well... although I didn't follow him after the trade. WE NEED SCORING!!!

stepan will center the 3rd line if we get richards and he needs wingers.

That would be a TERRIBLE deal for ATL.

Wolski, Grachev/Werek may be equal together in value to Wheeler

but Bogosian>>>>>>>>>>>>>MDZ.

Bogosian is someone you can anchor your defense around for years to come, I don't see that out of MDZ. Bogosian is a well-rounded defenseman, again MDZ is not.

But I do like your lines above

maybe get a Ladd+Wheeler trade without giving up huge assets somehow and throw Ladd into that top line LW spot. A bit of seasoning and thats a cup contender.
this is exactly what i was thinking towards lines..no way we get ladd though, probably will cost us a lot .. but i think these lines could do damage... also i haven't given up on wolski, i definitely want to give him a shot with gaborik and hopefully with richards... he still young and i think with a full year he could do damage under torts

Not close at all.
Dudley turned down two 1st round picks for Bogosian at the trade deadline.
Thrashers are not trading Wheeler. And if they did, a legit top 6 RW has to come back in return given he is the team's first line RW at the moment.

Anyways you can replace Sauer with Eminger and the salaries will pretty much match up.

Where's Drury, Avery, & Boogaard? How you you getting rid of their entire cap hits?
Can't send anyone down until September so you have to add about $23 million to this roster to cover those 3 plus Redden.

Wasn't sure how to add in the buyouts on capgeek.

But Boogaard can be sent down to the minors, and even if we get rid of Wolski and use that money to buyout Drury and Avery then it would still work out.
