I'm just excited to see some compteitive hockey from the Panthers. When Campbell can quarterback the breakout confidently, he is deadly. Everyone's showing the effort we need every game.
I was looking at Ottawa's depth chart and Karlsson and Turris are the only ones I'd go after and the chances of them being traded are absolutely garbage unless Weiss and or Kulikov was in the mix.
I'd throw out Weiss and Kulikov to Bryan Murray for a 1st round pick or 2nd round pick and Turris. Is that a fair swap?
Ottawa gets a proven 1st-2nd line center in Weiss and a touted top line d-man in Kulikov..........
We get a first round pick and a budding Center which we lack in depth.
we do not lack centers in our depth charts... we lack a first line center.
now that changes if Ottawa knows weisser will resign with them..
I mean if the cats brass knows we will lose Weiss then trade him straight up..Ott will not trade turris.
the blueprint is to build a team slowly through prospects, solid trades and solid FA signings.. thats the reason it kinda sucks we went into the playoffs. Now everyone wants it badly. Its was great and all but lets not deviate from the blueprint.. lets make smart trades and grow this team.
no need to trade kulikov unless we get another young defensive men that can fill in kulis spot..center isnt our main problem now (barring injuries of course).. if we were a major playoff team then yes.. but we arent a full fledge playoff team yet. we surprised some people.. but we arent going too far.
Kulikov is definitely trade bait, but there are so many factors in play because of this shorten season, it is not worth it unless we get Ryan o Riley or a big time player coming back. But kuli is just 23, and has aloot of time to work out his game. He looked great last year and has made his points slowly.
The only thing kuli is slowly killing me with is his freaking shot.. jeezs man.. AIM!
weiss goes for either a 2nd tier prospect + 2nd or a first
