Clendening to Minnesota

What would Chicago want for him.

obvious trade pieces are Seto, Clutter may be available, and we have Kuempur as a goalie prospect we might be willing to move.


obviously this can be a bigger deal then 1 for 1

Would want a goalie who is ready, like Hackett.
Clutterbuck could probably work too.

Clenny for Hackett or Clutterbuck and the Hawks would say yes without thinking twice about it.

I don't think the Hawks would say yes without thinking twice for Clutterbuck alone.. but a trade for Hackett could work.

Wild management's pretty high on Hackett. I don't think they would trade him hastily and risk having a thin goalie pipeline.

I think if we're going to trade for a D let's do Coyle for Despres.

Pass.

And pass on trading Hackett. Backstrom will be 35, Harding has MS and Gustafsson is still in Sweden. Plenty of other options to acquire a defenseman.

but he's buds with Coyle, we know how management recruits buddies so it totally works out.

I don't think Wild will want to swap hackett for him straight up, but any interest in Kuempur?

Didn't Kuempur have some injury issues? I don't think Bowman would trade Clendening for an unproven goaltender with health problems.

can add Emery if you want some depth in net
you should just add a useless pick like 5th or 6th that Bowman can hope to hit the jackpot with this - which won't happen.

So the Hawks wont trade a D prospect for a proven 3rd/2nd line Tweener but will for an unproven goalie?

Interesting to say the least...

Hawks need goaltenders a lot more than wingers.There are no goalie prospects in their system that look to be #1 material.They have tons of possible tweener forwards.So its not as "interesting"as you think.In fact it's downright sensible when you think about it.

I think that Clutterbuck is a UFA after this (shortened) year. Add in the Hawks prospect pool is deepest on the wing, and weakest in net, and moving Clendening for a potential long term solution in goal like Hackett makes a little more sense IMO.

Maybe it's just me, but if the Wild had a defensive prospect like Clendening with higher end offensive upside; there's no way I'd move him for an unproven goaltender if they had a hole at the NHL level. I think it's much easier to find a solution in net than it is to find a 20 year old mobile defender that can get on the score sheet.

I understand your point, but if that sort of trade would work, the Hawks would be trading an unproven PMD they drafted in the 2nd round for an unproven goalie that has really high potential. I like both players involved, but Hackett is much closer to contributing to the Hawks, and looking at the depth chart, much more of an area of need to the Hawks than a PMD. I think the fans here (myself included) would see Hackett as a potential long term solution to the goaltending problem which the Hawks have had for 10+ years.

The Wild fans might be a little spoiled with the really strong goaltending you guys have had over the last 10 years. During that time, the Hawks have struggled with starters like Thibault, Khabibulin, Huet, Niemi, and Crawford. While they're were short runs of solid play - overall goaltending has been a consistent issue with the Hawks since Belfour in the early 90's and Jeff Hackett for a while in the mid-late 90's.

Maybe the organization would disagree - but I'd bet that 90% of the posters on this board would do that trade in a second. Maybe we're posting on a hockey board for a reason though, and not smart!

Uh, Clendening isn't just a "D prospect". He's a very good offensive Dman, who's made a very nice transition from college to the AHL. Not a finished product yet, but still a very good transition and his potential is quite high.

IMO, one of Clendening or Leddy has to go in the next couple years, if you can improve your team now by moving 1 of them, you do it.

yep, a team with Keith and Leddy can trade Clenny if it brings us a goalie prospect like Hackett back. I'd be all over this trade
