Teemu Eronen to Ottawa

Teemu Eronen and Karlsson are having some very good chemistry together. Out of curiosity, what would you value him at coming to the Sens org?

Really no incentive for St. Louis to move him unless we have an expendable roster player they like. He's been really good since being drafted.

He plays for the same team that Jarmo Kekalainen is now the GM for. If Eronen is traded, it will be because there is a serious issue or we get serious overpayment. I think we are going to hold on to him, as he has been developing nicely. If he is playing well with Karlsson, then he could definitely play well with Pietrangelo.

What Eronen is realistically worth, would not fill a need for us, and Eronen could potentially fill the need that we do have.

Well said.

Eronen's potential is likely worth more to the Blues than anything he could realistically return at this point.

What is considered overpaying for a former 7th rounder one year after the draft?And Karlsson is pretty much going to have chemistry with almost anyone he plays with. He is the (semi-arguable) best defenseman in the world...

Seems pretty stupid. You can put a pylon with EK and he'd make it look good.

Even worse, you can put Kuba with him and he still makes him look good.

I think a prospect like Prince would be enough to get him.

That logic does not make sense. "if heatley can score 50 goals and 100 points with spezza, then he can do it with thornton".

Just because a player has chemistry with one player doesn't mean he'll have chemistry with any other player of equal caliber.

If he's good enough, I'm sure Karlsson will let Bryan Murray know to trade for him.

You make it sound like Karlsson covers for Kuba
Oh wait, maybe you have a point.

All I meant was if he can hang with a player like Karlsson, he has the ability to hang with Pietrangelo. Some players simply can't keep up with elite caliber players. I didn't say anything about production or chemistry.

These. Kid is just...special. He has the ability to make every other 4 teammates on the ice much better players thus making them look better then they actually are.

Karlsson likely would have found chemistry with anyone. Eronen is not worth trying to get, he will not be a top 2 dman, and if we are trading for him because of his chemistry with Karlsson, that is the role he would be given (if we play him with Karlsson he would be on the top unit)

I think Karlsson would benefit more from being paired with big, physical defensive D than with Eronen. What works in FEL might not work in NHL.

Karlsson and Pietrangelo are probably two of the best young D in the game, but their styles are nowhere near similar. Just because he plays good with one doesn't mean he would do so with another...

What I meant was he was able to keep up with an elite caliber defenseman, meaning it is plausible that he would be able to keep up with another elite caliber defenseman. Some players simply don't have the talent level to keep up with a player on the level of Karlsson or Pietrangelo. Point is, Eronen is showing good potential, and it wouldn't be worth moving him.

Exactly, Eronen is probably the last guy you would want to play him with in the NHL. They seem to be of the similar type of player, small puck movers.

When you play with truly elite players they make you look better than you are.

The minute you inquire about the value of a seventh-round prospect, his value rises to that of a fifth-rounder. If you keep the conversation going, the value will then heighten to that of a second-rounder, meaning a prospect that someone knew even before the topic was started.

Value inflation at its finest.
