Americanize our team more though wow! We even got the captain on the backend.

Foligno probably wanted insane money for his limited skill.
Just like he thinks he's a Spezza type player!

:-D So Stoked to see him moved!

Methot has some ok numbers for being in Columbus his whole career.
And if he were secretly considering leaving hockey forever to have a sex change operation because he was dying of an incurable disease... the deal might not have been that bad.


As it is now, the deal we are seeing is horrible!

Methot is a 6'3 230lb defensive defenseman who plays physical.
3.0 cap hit

But could we not have kept Foligno and went after a UFA like Allen, Morrisonn, Colaiacovo, Jurcina?

I would think that makes more sense

Correction:
- Good/Great signings
- Bad trade

Now, go back to posting Spezza for Schenn threads.

Well Nicky really was a 3rd line guy and every year there was gonna be more young players biting at his heels. I liked his physicality on our top 2 lines, but not his numbers. Having said that, we could have gotten a lot more for him than this.

Yes, we're losing a guy who can't crack a weak top 6. The reality is we have younger guys who have better upside coming through. I don't think our team is worse.

nicky got ****ed over huge this last yr.

guy was dominating at 2nd line center. then they go out and get a guy who NEVER matched his play at that position but kept him there all yr. Nicky gets moved to the 4th ****ing line.

47 pts in the bottom 9 and now traded? for the type we could have got through free agency

it smells like ****!

That does not mean we should be giving him away.
He is 24 and just had a career 47 point season along with 124PIM

Could we not package him with a pick or prospect and upgrade on him?

Jeezus! He has a $3.0 cap hit? .... For a bottom pairing D-man?

And he has zero chance of filling Kuba's boots, who just signed for $4.0M.

Is there any upside to this deal whatsoever?

This was a terrible trade by Ottawa, no matter how you slice it. I don't care if we get Parise AND Suter for 3million each for the next 10 years. There was no need to make this trade.

Trade Foligno? Maybe, but why now? Why not at the draft? Why not for something that isn't readily available for nothing more than an overpriced contract offer?

IF he was healthy sure but this deal makes me think he is not 100%.

This.

While many fans of Nick want to talk about his 47 points, the reality is he just doesn't skate well enough nor think the game well enough to be a top line player.

It's not the trading Nick fact I'm mad at. I'm all for trading him. I'm not for trading him for a #5 dman who can only pay 60 games and is 3 years older.

Its a one year deal, people are acting like Foligno was the next Crosby and Methot is worse than Gilroy.

Maybe this is just step one in the Nash to Ottawa deal.
