We could probably get Lang for a 2nd or 3rd rounder imo, though Souray doesn't have much trade value either seeing as he's in a contract year and has regressed as a player.

Unless they put him on the third pairing with Chelios. That could be a great combo. Of course, WE could have done that, dumped Dandenault and not signed Bouillon and then signed a top-tier UFA defenseman. But no......

Dany Markov is still out there. So is Desjardins, but he's leaning towards retirement apparently. Slegr is out there too. Nothing much left.

I wonder what San Jose could be offering for Souray. Implied in Code's blog is that Detroit is willing to do Souray for Lang straight up since its the Habs asking for more, not Detroit.

Cheechoo, Thornton are out ... who would they offer?

This makes no sense. All the Souray rumors got started because of the stupid daughter thing, and the Lang rumors because of the Zednik thing. Now they've merged to form the ultimate BS rumor, that has been born from the stupid parts of other dead rumors.

The Lang rumor always centered around Detroit getting a winger back for Lang, this gives them a D which they don't need.

The Souray rumor was to send him out West to be with his kid. Detroit is not close to LA.

I call bull on any Souray rumors, and any Lang to Montreal rumors for the duration of the offseason. They're all garbage.


Now watch the trade happens, and I end up looking like an ***.

I'm dreaming, but some kind of blockbuster:

SJ:
Marleau
Ehrhoff

MTL:
Souray
Ribeiro
Perezhogin
Ryder

Which is BS for 3 reasons:

1) Marleau carried the Sharks in the playoffs
2) He's married to a SJ girl, they're expecting a child
3) He is the captain of the Sharks, and he skipped 2 years of free agency to re-sign last summer.

When I say that the Sharks would keep Marleau over Thornton, I'm not exaggerating. Marleau is a fan favorite, he's practically grown up in SJ, and unlike Thornton in Boston, there are very few knocks on his clutch ability. The only people that think Marleau will be traded are delusional MTL fans, who somehow think Souray + Ribeiro for a 27 year old captain entering his prime, making only 4 million, is a fair deal.

So the Sharks lose their captain and top offensive defenseman? The only player MTL has a real chance of acquiring from SJ is Nils Ekman. The teams are not good trading partners, just because SJ, unlike most other NHL teams, has a group of players that just will not be traded (Thornton, Cheechoo, Marleau, Bernier, Ehrhoff, Michalek).

Marleau is at $4mill though .. To get him you would have to do something like Ribeiro + Souray + a good prospect to get anywhere near in talent or $$$.

um...
Ribeiro
Souray
Perezhogin
Ryder

even Thornton didn't go for that much lol

Marco Sturm, Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau...

anyways i'd love either Marleau or Thornton and i would break the bank for both (more for Thornton)

think about it during the season Thornton dominates, and then during the playoffs ppl waste their time concentrating on Thornton. Koivu owns even More because he's always been a playoff performer lol right on!

No need for the retarded comment, he said CODE, is there something in the air in San Jose that affects eye sight ??

Have you been on this site for long? After a while, you get sick of this:

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t...hlight=marleau

People seem to think that because Thornton was acquired, Marleau is expendable. The reason DW traded for Thornton was to take the pressure of Marleau.

Sharks fans are going through what TB fans went through with Richards/Lecavalier. Other teams (mostly MTL just by virtue of sheer numbers) fans see that SJ has two #1 centers, and propose a terrible deal for one of them.

It's Sheldon Souray we're talking about, not Scott Niedermayer. Excuse me if I'm a little testy, but that happens after you constantly read lopsided proposals for your captain.

No. I was just browsing some topics about Sheldon Souray, and I came across this. Naturally, I have to defend my team's star players.

No way. The only reason DW traded for Thornton was because then Bruins-GM Mike O'Connell was on crack.

Gainey will not trade for Lang because people are actually talking about it.

While we all sit here and talk about Lang coming to MTL, Gainey is working on something totally "unexpected" as usual.

Gainey probably starts these rumours himself to distract people from what he's actually trying to do... which is acquire Lecavalier

The Blues are also interested in either of the Sharks goaltenders, and Manny Legace. The Blues are willing to try off Jackman or Brewer to land a number one goalie.

I wonder if they would we willing to trade one of those for Aebischer + little something. Jackman may be a little rich ... but Brewer. That would enable sending Souray to LA/SJ for pick/prospect. Expecting the unexpected.

I thought that too until I read some Code or Elkund or some other blogger that Detroit had asked for Higgins AND a 2nd or 3rd. It actually angered me, and I felt like writing a rude e-mail to Holland. Then I realized (again) that I spend too much time on these boards.
