Would TB have any interest in Sarich?

Also, I can see Feaster going after Brassard. Maybe for something around Bourque.

Doubt Feaster lets Sarich go. He's a familiar face.

I can see the Caps being interested in Brassard. Maybe Schultz+Perrault for him?

Scott Arniel coached Schneider for three years on a team that had a far weaker defense than what Columbus has today and he has nothing but praise for Schneider. During that time Schneider made the AHL first allstar team and won trophies for fewest goals against and best Goal tender in the league.

The Jackets have a choice. Stay the same and continue to lose or attempt to change the team into a winner. Goaltending is your weakest strength followed closely by your defense. Not only is Schneider showing potential to become an elite franchise level goal tender, he is an American and so adds marketing potential for American based teams to capitalize upon.

Why would the Caps be interested in another center when they have Backstrom and Johansson in the top 6?

Columbus has already shown relative ineptitude at developing forwards. Columbus currently has the worst goaltending situation in the NHL and Schneider has already shown adequate ability at the NHL level.

In other words, you are wrong.
I won't be so pompous as to say you're wrong, you're just not looking at it from the Jackets perspective. Schneider would help Columbus, no doubt, but not at the cost of a young, potential, top line center on an ELC. Top line guys like that don't come along very often (the CBJ just found their first after ten years of searching) and competent goalies are usually available. That Columbus doesn't currently have one is a combination of misfortune and misjudgment of epic proportions. If there's a deal to be made to bring Schneider to Columbus, I don't believe it will include Johansen.

Because Laich is not a center. As much as BB wants him to be, he's much better off on the wing. It would be nice to take Johansson and put him as 3C with Brassard as 2C and move Laich up to the 2nd line

Is that why Jennings trophy winner and perenial Vezina trophy nominee Luongo is having no trouble keeping the puck out of the net? Don't come back with comments that Luongo is overrated. Those that nominate players for annual NHL awards are a lot more knowledgeable about hockey than any of us on HF. When a player is nominated, especially year after year, it means he is considered one of the best in the league by management and his peers.

I didnt know we were having a discussion about Luongo. You have an odd way of spelling Schneider.

Actually potential elite, top line players at any position do not come along often. Most prospects, no matter what potenial is believed of then at the draft, if they make the NHL end up as good or adiquate players. That holds true for Schneider and it holds true for Johansen, but so far Schneider is ahead in showing he just might make it to that NHL elite status at his possition. He dominated the AHL, he has a winning record in the NHL todate and he showed well in the Staley Cup finals.

Are the Canucks wanting to trade him? No, but with Luongo and Lack, the Canucks can afford to. Are they going to trade him for less than an elite roster or prospect forward? No, Gillis' current asking price has been more than just a Johansen level prospect alone. Gillis has been asking for a low draft pick too.

It is your coach's and GM's neck that is on the line right now. Even if Johansen reaches his potential and becomes an elite first line forward, it is still going to take a couple or more likely an few more years in the NHL before the team and it's fans see him become good enough to take that roster spot away from your current lineup, but if your team doesn't start winning soon, neither your coach or your GM are going to be around to see the fruition of their elite draft pick.

Personally I would rather end up with an elite goal tender than an eltite skater. Bad goal tenders lose games no matter how good the players are who are in front of him. I would also rather have an elite defenseman than an elite forward. Elite defensemen are much harder to find then a forward and take much longer to develop.

Disagree our defense is worse than our goal tending. That said goal tending is easier fixed. Mason has really only let in 1 soft goal this year he has been hung out to dry almost every night.
