You can't for it's Roenick's words that starts this.

I think there are only 2 things I like about JR, he is born on January 17 and is from Boston.

Kane would be nice.

Seabrook makes more sense.

I'm sure Chicago would trade their young superstar signed for 4 more years for an aging, but very clutch and still very good goalie that's signed for only one more year.

This move would only happen if CHI-GM lost his mind. TT does still have decent value, but Pat Kane? It could only work if it was Rask (+) instead of Thomas

And I doubt Chia is going to pull such a blockbuster-trade...

I would do it, but no way either team makes that move.

That kind of trade belongs in fantasy hockey.

As stated this trade will never happen.

But as it pains me to say, Boston would have to do it.

38 year old Thomas vs 23 year old Kane.
Their ages have everything to do with it.

ABSOLUTELY NOT, this makes zero sense, so, we`ll trade a 2 time Vezina, Cup winnin, Conn Smyth goalie, hand the reigns to a kid who`s very limited playoff past didn`t exactly do much for the fans here as far as showing he`s absolutely ready for that haul???

And if Tuukka struggles, is Khubodin or whatever his name is the kind of guy you feel good about having as a backup heading into the playoffs or whenever???

This makes as much sense as the Schneider to Columbus as part of a Nash package, regardless of Luongo`s contract, NOBODY in that organization is feelin too good about his usually solid regular season numbers knowing that the guy crumbles when needed most

The way Kane`s playin, not sure that the Hawks wouldn`t win that trade one for one

Timmy ain`t on fire, but PK is ice cold and appears sulky on the ice to boot

Haha, now if we can just convince Bowman that PK will never turn it around.

Seriously though, I'd make this move in a heartbeat. It would make this team infinitely more dangerous, as it allows Horton to play a smaller role whenever he returns, and gives the Bruins a winger that can score, a lot.

Dangerous for sure, but I`m just too cautious of a guy naturally to feel comfortable with Tuukka with solely in there full time as our #1 with a backup who`s played a minimal amount of NHL games if he falters or gawd forbid, gets injured.

Tuukka is the future, I don`t doubt that, I`m just not sure that future starts today which I`m fine with for now

another thing with Kane, in Quenville it`s all about tempo, up ice constantly, could he or would he accept a strict systems coach such as CJ ??? I`m highly doubtful he would or could

Thomas was integral in us winning the cup last year, and it amazes me how so many "fans" are all of the sudden on the "trade him" bandwagon lately

Let's not get carried away here. His highest career goals total is 30, not any more than Lucic. He's good, he's creative, but he doesn't even score as many goals as Kessel.

Dont know whats more ridiculous.
a)The rumor itself
b)people that think this could actually happen
c)people who wouldnt do this

A wise decision would be to just close the thread.

It would be an absolute no brainer for Boston you have to make that trade. A legitimate young superstar for a great, but old goaltender, especially where we also have a great and young goaltender around

But no way Chicago does it

There`s lots of great players who play better in systems that suit their natural game, CJ`s isn`t exactly what I`d call one geared for a guy like Kane, ask our old pal #81 how he felt about having a coach demand defensive responsibility from him. I see Kane in the same light, although talent is sublime, I could see it gettin ugly, and quick, especially when someone like Z or Bergy get in his face for effort and committment to the system

Chicago has loads of high-end talent and you wonder if maybe they need more cooks and fewer chefs.

I also think Kane goes nowhere. But I'd still make the call...maybe ask about Sharp, Keith, Seabrook and Cjalmerrson (whatever his spelling is) too. That team has to be close to desperate by now.
You make a very good point bp, but you also make a very good argument as to why Chia wouldn't likely move on it. Offseason... maybe, but he's pretty consistent about ensuring the chemistry isn't affected by any moves on deadline day and moving strong locker room guys out one would think would be the very definition of that.

Of course on the flipside, maybe it's not an issue of too few cooks in the kitchen at all. Maybe it's an issue of too many? Sharp, Keith, Toews, Hossa, Keith, Seabrook, Brunette, O'Donnell... they have a lot of vocal guys with a lot of experience whom reportedly tend to exhibit stronger leadership tendencies. If everyone is their own leader you'll have some serious issues as well.

Regardless, agree 100%, whatever the issues in Chicago you make the call. That team has a ton of talent, and many many attractive pieces. The obvious weakness is goaltending and that just happens to be a Boston strength. If you can take advantage of a desperate team and pry away a Kane, Keith, Seabrook or Sharp, get her done.

I'm putting my fan energy into being 100% behind Stanley Cup MVP Tim Thomas in his quest to repeat again this year, as he pulled miracles on the ice for the Bruins last year and nothing indicates to me that he doesn't have it in him to help win us a Stanley Cup again this year too

I am not ever on the trade Thomas bandwagon, but if you can trade a guy who is 39 very soon for someone that is a great young player under 25 you have to do it.

How many 40+ guys are in the NHL this year, Lidstrom and Selanne?

Statistically speaking Thomas has 2 years left in him while Kane has 10-15 in all probability.

Here's a more realistic idea because this question is way to easy. you trade Thomas for Kane yesterday.

would you trade Rask for Kane?

because that's much more of a thinker..but I think I still may do it and draft Subban with the first this year. Kane's an elite talent...sickest sauce in the game not names datsyuk, I can only imagine that ending up on seguins stick.

edit: read the whole thread heel, damnit.

Id Jump all over this. Deal an older alstar for a young one? Yes please.

I'm also a big believer that this summer the bs will have to pick between Timmy and tuukka and I for one am on tuukkas wagon. Age scares me.
