That and also giving up one of Pacioretty, PK or Price if WPG wants to trade. (I don't see any combination of Beaulieu or Tinordi being enough)

So in other words... not happening.

Jagr got 54 points last season playing with Claude Giroux. You really think he could improve that if he play for us ?

Also, he ran out of gas by the end of the season.

And yes, I would prefer to give Bourque a chance. He can put better number then Jagr next season.

@Eklund. Sorry pal. Just talked to Dale Tallon and he says nothing has changed. Still talking with Van. Nothing imminent. High price.

Why?

Seguin worked in a 3rd line role with Boston because they had great center depth, a quality team and the ability to play on the wing since he wasn't ready for center.

Plekanec is older than Ryan but he's a far more valuable hockey player than Ryan.

Gallagher/Kristo are damn good prospects.

Those 2 2nds are in a very deep draft and depending on how both Calgary and Montreal do COULD be top 40 picks. Can either draft them as is, or use them and other assets to move up.

The path to creating a consistent contender is not overpaying for established players.

And again, Anaheim wants to save money in the whole deal...so Plekanec wouldn't interest them since he makes about the same as Ryan.

Yes, he said he feels better every day, which means he's not at 100% yet and his conditioning is suspect at best.

If there is no big move coming and we're all excited about nothing I hope Palushaj gets a chance playing legitimate top 9 minutes with legitimate top 9 NHL players.

Either that or just waive him, or trade him for a 6th round pick.

Just unfair to him.

Reason why Bergevin keeps delaying his press conference is probably because he doesn't feel wrapping this up with three marginal signings. There's either a big signing or trade coming up ahead.

Ryans a 25 year old power forward who has been a consistent 30-35 goal scorer, gallagher or kristo not both You've got to give to get, and I have no idea where the value is or not, but this is just me spit balling. We'd be rolling on the wings for years with two powerforwards

Everyone has their own opinion. Personally, I have way more faith in a Jagr-Plekanec duo that a Bourque-Plekanec one.

Yep. The media's been waiting for him since 1pm and they have no idea when he'll be speaking.

Logic dictates there has to be, given the delays and the fact this club has not improved very much (although I do approve and like the moves that have been done).

A trade for Evander Kane would make me one happy camper.

I bet Eklund is furious that Dregs is making him look as brutal as he truly is. This frustration has reached e5 level
