Stajan for a 4th and Babchuk for a 4th.


Together?
Two 4ths and a 5th.

I hope we keep Stajan for his faceoff numbers, Babchuck is useless with Wideman, Jbo, Gio all ahead of him for the pp.

I know Feaster wants his 5th back.
So, getting that is a priority; these contracts are pretty (really) bad... so, I don't know how many teams would give Calgary anything for them, might end up being Waiver claims.

A bag of donuts for our management

On a serious note a couple of late round picks if that.

Babs should yield a pick, hopefully a third rounder. Stajan is not worth trading. His value isn't high enough to help the team but his skill set may, especially with our depth on wing. Considering that all legit top 6 centremen passed us by, we simply can't afford to give Stajan up for a bag of pucks

Babchuck - 5th

Stajan - Might actually resurrect his career under Hartley. He is our best face-off C, and has proven he can put up points in the past. Despite that, I could see him leaving town. Maybe a 4th from a team who needs to hit the cap floor?

Yea I don't see Stajan going anywhere unless it's for a cheaper Center to a team struggling to reach the floor. He's our backup plan for whn Feaster realizes tht Cervanka and Hudler are not Centers despite what their trading Card says.

Stajan as a Flame:
Post Trade: Lets resign this guy! 1st line center!
1st full season: Pretty bad year, get rid of this guy.
2nd full season: TRADE HIM, BURY HIM, ANYTHING JUST GET RID OF HIM!
Prior to last season as a Flame: I think he will be good now, lets keep him.

But in all seriousness Babchuk must go. Stajan might as well get one last shot.

Right now, due to our roster and an unsigned Backlund, we can't trade Stajan.

With Wideman on the team I see absolutely no room for Babchuk. Someone with a deep defense and the ability to shelter his ES minutes might take him for the chance to have his shot.

Stajan I would like to see get a shot on the top line. He can atleast win faceoffs and prevent Iginla and Tanguay from being forced to defend off of every draw.

We get it dude. You're in love with (or are???!?) Matt Stajan. You've mentioned it in every thread. Personally, I would rather watch one of the timbits hockey players from in between periods centre our top line. At least they would be excited to be there and fight for the puck before crying and having a temper tantrum because daddy won't buy them the over priced ice cream from the concourse.

What happened to you gleninator, you used to be cool.

On a serious note, I think Babchuck could gain a 3rd if a team really wanted him, but I would be fine getting a 4th or 5th back. As for Stajan, I would rather keep him, because no one else wants him.

If we had to move Stajan to make cap space for a better center, then I would be down. But as it stands right now, we have a lot of question marks down the middle and we can afford to keep hin otherwise. We will need Stajan as a back up plan as he IS a serviceable center who will likely be our best face-off center.

Babchuk on the other hand...

Exactly. He's the best of a bad situation and if you say otherwise, you'll need to make an appointment with your optometrist.
