Just someone who does the job Moen is being counted on to do would be a good start.

Eager is pretty much the Travis Moen of Edmonton. He doesn't play anymore the style of play that made him succesful in the NHL.

Seriously? Terrible comparison. I know Moen doesn't fight and score so everyone thinks he's useless, but the guy is tied with Plekanec for most SH TOI per game...saying he's as useless as Eager is out to lunch.

Eager is far more worthless than any other goon we have had the chance to pick up off of waivers. Please move off the Eager fan bus, nothing to see here

Is Brian Boyle still in his coach's doghouse? If we don't get a goon, then at least get a giant that actually hits and go to the net!

Now this is an idea I would be all for, was hoping that we were going to draft him in his draft year

Since Rupp gone to Minny and their lack of toughness, I don't think he's available.

Bergevin missed many opportunities to take one from waivers or trade for one.

Not many are available now.

What about Jared Boll ? Columbus isn't going for the playoffs and their new GM is a former master scout, so he would probably fall for a late 3rd round or 4th round pick.

He tried to take Sestito but another team had an earlier waiver take on him.

Anyhow, it mean he would like to add a big body. I'm sure he'll make a move before the deadline.

You guys should target Jared boll. I think a 4th/5th rounder should do it. Columbus already has a a lot of guys that can fight both in their NHL team and their minor hockey team. Boll is willing to drop with anyone and kind of even plays like a pest.

And another question....why did you guys ever get rid of Staubitz. Dude was a beast. And this is coming from a leafs fan. I dont think he is getting much playing time in Anaheim. He would have been a much better player on the fourth line than Armstrong rofl

Armstrong is about 3 times the player Staubitz is, sadly enough. Staubitz doesn't even win fights anymore. He was a decent stop gap but I wouldn't give anything up for him.

Boll would nice on the 4th line.

Fair enough. But yeah you should target boll. I also hear you guys want a physical defenceman who will stand up for teammates....What about shane obrien? No? Dude def sticks up for teammates. Im just putting some names out there. Dont get mad lol. Jay rosehill?? Ryan clowe? Matt martin? Trevor gillies?

Yeah the dude can even chip in once in a while. Where were we doing when a legit SOB like Orr was available in 2009?

I'd like to see a guy like Ryan Reaves from St.Louis. He can also play hockey. Would be a great addition to our 4th line instead of Armstrong

He is interesting. If he stopped with bad penalities, I would give him a shot

Reaves is know to be a spot-picker. I would take him but not the best option imo

St. Louis wont give him up....unless you guys make an gross over payment lol. I say it only because they had two fighters on their team last year in Bj Crombeen and Reaves. They decided to keep reaves and trade Crombeen to the Lightning. Ken Hitch likes a tough team with atleast one heavyweight. So, i doubt reaves is available. I put up some names that might be available on my last post

We had Laraque and were hoping his back injuries were done and over. If I remember correcty, Laraque flipped Orr (judo style) in the 1st game of the 09 season.
