Does anyone else besides me not want to see JJ for Carter? too many question marks for me about Carter.
I would be thinking the same thing about Jack if I was a CBJ fan, but worse. The system is so defensive oriented and goals still head in at ES when Jack's on the ice. Carter is a former 45+ goal scorer, Jack's far less proven than that. It's a complete tossup.
JJ has question marks no doubt, but I feel like he has improved every year. My big concerns and question marks about carter are his attitude problems we hear about. Plus all the things i had heard about him and richards always partying together.
Maybe so, but I don't think Brown is the problem. This team has no forward depth; moving Brown for Pomiville doesn't change that. Brown was drafted by us, and has made a commitment to the franchise. A classy organization like Detroit would never make a deal like that.
Detroit also hasn't had to question the heart, desire, and overall leadership ability of their captain last time I checked either. They have some guy named Lidstrom over there I heard.
Bob just stated that Brown is "very much" in play. Apparently, LA wants another scorer and may have to move some salary to accommodate; if that is the case, I have to assume Brown's being moved for more than just cap reasons.
Botta (writer for NYT, very connected) says the Rangers are in on Brown. Make of it what you will.
Start with Dubinsky and add another young player/prospect along with him such as Chris Kreider or J.T. Miller.
Dubinsky is like another Mike Richards, he's more of a 40-50 point player but he's quite physical and isn't shy about dropping the gloves. He'll toughen up the Kings and give them a LW who can fit right in.
