Patrick Sharp

Which teams would be interesed in him? Could Sharp get the hawks a legit #1 goalie? Maybe Hiller?

Sharp and Crawford for Hiller and Smith Pelley maybe?

Or to Buffalo for Miller? Sharp would make the Sabres offense deadly and a combo of Enroth/Crawford is still very good.

Buffalo would like to keep their number one goalie.

Not too sure on the Anaheim side of things.

How about a deal around Enroth. Maybe Stalberg + Crawford for Enroth?

There's a certain elite goalie I'd trade for Sharp.

Yeah I'm sure Crawford will have a similar year to his rookie season whenever it gets underway, so I don't think Chicago should be in the market for a goalie. Blackhawks should keep Sharp for a while as well.

Yeah no kidding. I don't think 'Hawks fans would take too kindly to that proposal but if the OP is talking about acquiring an elite goaltender for Patrick Sharp there's a guy currently on the market who is under contract to a team in need of an impact forward..

Luongo is definitely NOT that elite goalie. And sharp would be a huge overpayment.
When healthy i would take Hiller and Miller over Luongo.

Which makes no sense to me.

Jonas Hiller is not an elite goalie, and Miller is not as good as someone who's on the market. Not to mention I think Miller is overpaid (cap hit) for the next two years. Not long-term, but he very well could walk.

If the Hawks wanted to go all-in and gamble, trying to acquire Tim Thomas might make sense too.

I'd say Hillier is on the lower end of the elite category.

This is the first season out of five where he's posted a save percentage less than .918, and it's also the first year where he's had to play more than 59 games (jumping all the way up to 73). I think the two are related. Not to mention that even at a .910 SV%, Hiller would still be a huge improvement over what the Hawks were icing all year.

I'd absolutely take Hiller before Miller. Especially if his health were guaranteed.

Yes Hiller Id say is on the bottom of elite, when healthy he is a very solid goalie. hes a top 10 goalie and not a big drop from Luongo, plus comes up big in big games. Look back to his International performances playing for the Swiss. He stands on his head every game.

Honestly, theres maybe only 8 goalies id take over Hiller.

Another possibility is if Elliot has another season like he did and say STL may want to use him as their #1 and move Halak for a top scorer, Sharp would be a great help to the blues.

I think Sharp would be the ideal player for a team like St. Louis. For that reason alone I hope it never happens.

Well that's a pretty big "if" - actually not it's not because nobody ever gets that guarantee.

I don't know if things work that differently in the central, but I have a hard time imagining two teams in that division addressing one another's biggest needs.

You do realize Hawk fans have seen what Luongo can do in the playoffs many times. And it's not good. It's funny, I heard a Canuck analyst on sportsnet this morning who also agreed that Luongo's playoff woe's were to much to ignore.

I'd say that the Hawks and Blues are the two teams in the central that are least likely to trade with one another. Especially if a player like Sharp is involved.

Yeah I couldn't imagine a couple of old Norris rivals helping each other out like that.

Don't think Buffalo is interested in moving Enroth, but if they did Buffalo's biggest need is a defensively competent center, so that would be a good place to start.

No interest in trading Sharp for any available goalie.
