Ellis + Watson/Hornqvist + 1st can get us what we need.
Well, the more reasonable excuses are legitimate. A deal for a player has to exist, and we have to have what the trading team wants. It's that simple. Having quality pieces is fine, but Poile isn't going to convince Toronto to trade Kessel, for example.

NYR fans are panicking. Their GM obviously won't over-react as hard as the fans, but still, they may want to shake it up. Rags fans are saying Richards looks terrible this year. One of their fans proposed Klein+1st for him. Is Richards our guy?

Gaborik is also someone the Rangers might need to move because of cap issues. SK+Blum?

the more and more i think about it the less likely i see a trade happening. Poile traded his most prized assests away last year, our 1st round and 2nd rd, probably more picks but im not looking it up tho. I think he is going to stay put this year and draft with them(picks), to restock the pretty bare cupboards, and go hard in FA. He has basically ALL of the 90+ million dollars Suter was going to get. He may throw stupid money at Getzlaf maybe even Semin, when he earns it during his one year deal with Carolina..

Getzlaf and/or Perry would fantastic! Semin as well, he gets a bad rap from the baised Canadian media. I've really liked his game.
There will be a lot of options for Poile this summer...if he can't get one of the big fish I would be happy with any combination of Roy, Ribeiro, Weiss, Ryder.

Simon Gagne is apparently available, and the Kings want a physical D+late pick. Gill+3rd/4th?

Absolutely not. Historically he's better, but I'm afraid he's turning into another Fisher/Leggy. And that contract...YIKES.

That's a Poile type move

Count me in as another that wouldn't mind us sitting tight this year.

If we're going to go into the playoffs and pin our hopes on acquiring (and probably overpaying for) a guy like a Gagne or Cammaleri or some other offensive guy with warts - we might as well keep our picks and just keep our fingers crossed that someone like SK or HQ just gets hot.

We've probably got the core of a top 10 NHL defense or better in place for the next half decade (probably more). Let's stock the farm and wait for the fruit to ripen (Sissons, Leipsic, Aberg, Budish, Watson + whomever we can get this year sounds good, just by throwing #'s against the wall certainly one or two of them should provide some offense).

Success or failure in the playoffs will ride on the hot goalie. Run into Mike Smith circa 2012 and we could have Gretzky and it wouldn't matter. Maybe one of these days Rinne pulls a Smith or a Quick and next thing we know we're in the finals.

Gagne does get hurt a lot, but so does Gill. If all it takes is a 3/4th to switch them, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Shipped to Philly for a 4th. So that would have been big overpayment.

Possible, but just as likely, gagne requested a trade back to Philly, and Lombardi obliged.

He would have been a nice piece, but not a savior.

How exactly is a guy who was a healthy scratch for LA going to finally improve our offense?

Gagne was going to Philly no matter what other offers were anyway.

Some fans of every team in every sport have some sort of a condition known as "Shakeup Syndrome". Fans are disappointed in certain aspects of the roster and immediately assume a new player will help just because he's a new player and seems like a nice breath of fresh air. Especially when they've heard of him a lot in the past. "Oh yeah I know that guy, he would definitely help."

Yeah, let's go get the guy who hasn't scored a goal since 2011 to improve our offense. What a brilliant... idea?

I really don't want a move unless we get a top player. Perry/Getzlaf, Ror or whomever. Cammaleri, gange, and Weiss just seem like more of the same. Let's see how we do this year and use our 1st to draft a forward. Our forward prospect pool will start to look pretty decent after this draft.

Didn't realize how much gagne has sucked lately, lol, but still for a fourth round pick I would do it. But yeah, I guess he wanted to go back to Philly. He has really lost a step.
It just kills me that we have a team that is an easy cup contender with the addition of a big offensive forward and this has been the case for so long now. I know poile doesn't want to sell the farm but just make it happen! What good is the farm if we never win a cup here in Nashville?!?!
Make an offer they can't resist.
Offer the ducks Ellis, hellberg, Craig smith and a first for Perry! Why not?? I love Ellis but i do this deal!

It's actually Cole for Ryder and a 3rd rounder. That's not a typo; Dallas not only traded their leading scorer, they were the side adding assets to the deal.

Just... odd.

Ryder's been on a hot streak over the past 2 weeks which accounts for the majority of his points. If we ignore that then the deal makes sense Still odd for Dallas
