Anton Babchuk

Anton currently has 2 points a -7 rating in 22 KHL games. Playing in his native Ukraine, one could imagine the distraction that comes from the intense media spotlight and throngs of beautiful women that follow him around 24 hours a day. He is, after all, the best player to ever to come from Ukraine, or Europe altogether.

That said, he also struggled last season in Calgary, missing most of the season due to injury and never being able to get into a rhythm thanks to a coach who insisted on playing him less than his customary 48 minutes a game.

Clearly, Anton's elite slapshot and dominant stickchecking need a new home. What would your team give for his services?

If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

Brent Sutter's use of Anton, The was appalling.

You remember the Lindros trade? yeah that thing would look like a bargain by the time whoever gets done shipping out the necessary pieces to land him.

Had him to start his career in Chicago...something missing from that guy...HUGE shot, good skill, slow on the trigger mentally, I think.

You mean what team is Anton going to trade himself to?

For that answer I would have to consult the mystic Book of the Anton. Which requires a blood sacrifice to Pierre McGuire at midnight in the old Montreal Forum.

So if you're volunteering by all means...we could go.

Exactly. Engaging in trade negotiations for The Anton is like going to a fancy restaurant where there are no prices on the menu. You just send a blank trade form to his team, and the other GM fills it out and files it with the league for you.
