How much do we need to add to turn him in to Marleau or Ryan? Obviously Ryan would have a huge price tag, but could Hemsky, Whitney, Omark and a 2nd get us Marleau + Murray?
Omark has no value. I think Hemsky for Murray and a 2nd is possible, but Murray isn't really the kind of player we need, we have enough bottom pairing d-men. I would be shocked if the Oil managed to get a Marleau or even more shocked if we get a Ryan.
Yes, his shoulders were repaired, and he took some time to adjust, but after his adjustment period he seemed to bounce back and had a decent last 1/3 of the season.
I doubt Martin would waive his NTC for Edmonton. And honestly, I'm not sure if Martin is the type of guy the Oil are after. I'm sure they'd rather have a guy like Depres, and no need to scream about him being not available, I get that.
That's good to hear, I've always liked Hemsky.
I figured as much, Martin, while a veteran, isn't physical enough to be a go-to guy for a team lacking on defense. Perhaps something around Orpik+ for Hemsky+?(I'm just doing this as a trade forum thing to pass the time, obviously no basis in reality)
I'll never yell at someone about Despres, regardless of what people say the only true untouchables are 87/71/18/58(due to contract), any other player is a trade option in my eyes.
