OVERPAYED = YES
OVERRATED = NO

Even when he is not producing offensively he is a 30 point defender, that is one of the best positional defenders in the league.

If he was a terrible hockey player he would not be playing 25+ minutes a night consistently.

Come on, Jaybo is a shadow of his former self. Ballard had one off year. I gamble on the guy who is just coming off one bad season.

Ballard would come cheaper in every way and is a real wild card if they go after him. Plus Van actually wants to get rid of him, he wasn't a fit on their squad. He'd be a bit on NYI because he'd be one of the main guys they build around (at least for the time being he'd be a #2d for you guys)

NYI is looking to reach the cap floor by helping other teams and themselves.

They aren't looking to give up assets for JayBo. They're looking to take Ballard on the cheap.
And there is a reason one could be had for cheap and one for significant assets....

You are really off-base with this one.

Lets take a look at each players last two season's shall we...

Jay Bouwmeester :
2009-10 Calgary Flames NHL 82GP 3G 26A 29A
2010-11 Calgary Flames NHL 82GP 4G 20A 24A

Keith Ballard :
2009-10 Florida Panthers NHL 82GP 8G 20A 28P
2010-11 Vancouver Canucks NHL 65GP 2G 5A 7P

Not to mention Jay's defensive abilities are far superior to Ballard's.

Bouwmeester's not going anywhere. The Flames need Bouwmeester now that Regehr is gone. He's worth more to the Flames right now than he would be to other teams.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's for Bogosian or even Green. Ballard also makes sense but if the Canucks don't trade him, I won't be at all surprised; they're going to need him now that they lost Ehrhoff. The Isles must be taking on some salary in this other trade and it's probably a defenseman going to Long Island. Snow also said that he is happy that Rolston's a New York Islander, so I wouldn't say Rolston's going anywhere. He wasn't brought in to be a trading chip. He was brought in to 1) help the Islanders get to the cap floor and 2) provide a veteran presence to a young team as well as add some more offense. Add in the fact that Rolston could still have the NTC and he waived it for the Islanders so he wouldn't have to move his family and it's safe to say he'll be an Islander on opening night.

JayBo also has an NTC, a luxury that Ballard does not possess.



He plays with some much intensity.

That's really the only aspect that he has on Bouwmeester.

In terms of the asking price Ballard is probably the "smarter choice", However he is certainly not the better player.

In all seriousness I really like Ballard.....IDK if I would trade Comaeu for him but I wouldnt mind haveing him on the Island...

Good point....I see the Flames asking for alot for J BO


And in terms of Offense we have Striet Amac and Hamonic......we need a true banger....I wish someway but I know its next to immpossible we could get Kronwall....Its a dream

I disagree, I think Ballard would fit in nicely here. I think he just didn't fit with Vancouver, and would be excellent paired with Streit. I would take him.

He'll also submarine the other team's star player and then fight the other team's other star player.



Two birds with one stone.

Pomineville and Vanek for Nielsen, Grabner and Okposo and Storme.

Ennis - Roy - Stafford
Okposo - Nielsen - Grabner
Gerbe - Leino - Boyes
Hecht - Gaustad - McCormick



and suddenly we would have got a lot of cap space

When should we expect this deal based on Botta's trend of releasing rumors? Tomorrow? A week?

I am not saying it will happen tomorrow, but the Arena vote is on Monday, if the Islanders want to make some noise to get some good PR over the weekend, tomorrow would probably be the best day

.
Rolston: Born 2/21/73

Yashin: Born 11/5/73

Wang's logic: "With the addition of Alexei, we got younger and added someone that all Islander fans are familiar with".

After signing Yashin, Snow pulls off a coup by trading for Ales Kotalik to be Yashin's winger.

Wang's logic: "We now have a dynamic 1-2 punch that is very capable of scoring goals for us."
