Can I trade Jr. and Hossa for...

Havlat, Ladd and tallon?

I mean does Jr. put together a Stanley Cup winning team?

He has not added to a solid group Tallon had.

Would we still have Buff or Ladd or Versteeg if we kept Havlat over Hossa? I think we still win the Cup with Havlat. If so, wow Jr. really stinks.

We win a Cup. We make the playoffs on the last day, BACKING IN. Now this year, we are limping along.

Just thinking about it. Tallon was demoted and the next day Havlat goes off as we sign Hossa.

Looking back, for the Cap space gain and what Jr. has done, I really don't think Jr. is going to build us back up.

A few prospects he drafted panning out is what is going to help him out.

Q's system stinks with this overall D and skill level.
Jr's additions stink. Playing Leddy, Olsen and Lapisto, wow. Nice depth.

Anyway, just thinking what might have been if we didn't go down the Hossa road. I think we are much better off the other way, not straight up Hossa-Havlat but for what else we could have KEPT from the Cup team. Sigh.

Uhh..Havlat's cap hit is 5 mil

Hossa's is 5.275

So...not really a difference


Please people...do a little research before coming on here with nonsense!

I'd rather have a guaranteed cup with Hossa instead of playing the what if game...

Congrats. It's only Feb., and you've already won The Stupidest Thread of The Year of 2012. Havlat over Hossa, even with all the hindsight of what has transpired with those two players since? Are you nuts?

Yep, I'm convinced.

No one properly remembers anything that happened before September 2010.

Especially when winning the Cup is shrugged off like some kind of consolation prize.

What is really laughable is how Stan Bowman gets ZERO credit for standing pat during the 2010 trade deadline. EVERYBODY said the Hawks could not win the cup with Niemi and Huet in the net. Well, the Hawks had plenty of assets to deal to get a goaltender, namely Vokoun. But, credit to Bowman, he didn't sacrifice any of our depth to get a goalie and it paid off in the playoffs. We always got a big goal from our depth when we needed to. And don't act like it was such an easy decision to run with Niemi because he wasn't even the starter till almost mid-March that year. Bowman should get credit for his guts to stick with Niemi that year. That wasn't an easy decision, and not many fans had faith at the point he made the decision.

Well, everything he has done is swirling down the toilet so this is not the time to be stroking him. The last thing he needs to do is stand pat.

you understand the Cap?

Why should we have Havlat over Hossa? How do we get Ladd?

They don't win the cup without Hossa.

So no.

If you think the Hawks win the cup without Hossa (and please for the love of god dont bring up his irrelevant stats) then you must not have watched neither the 2010 playoffs nor the 2009 playoffs with Havlat
