Pens-Preds proposal

Pens fan here. I rarely ever make trade proposals because it's much more fun to criticize other people's. But given the recent trend of Ray Shero accumulating former Predators, I'd give it a shot here. I am not too sure if the value's there or not. So flame away if you think it's outrageous. I can take it like a big boy.

Here goes:
To Nashville: Ryan Whitney, Ryan Malone, 2007 3rd.
To Pittsburgh: Dan Hamhuis, 2007 4th.

Unfortunately, we here in the south are simply too polite to allow you make this deal. Not a knock on the dealer, but IMHO, methinks you giveth too much. Pittsburg would require an additional two first round picks.

let me put it this way ... there is no way in Hades that Hamhuis gets moved let alone for THAT kind of proposal ... I along with Poile would probably PASS on that ... we'd need a bonafide center coming back this way if we were to give up Hamhuis ... and that last name would not be Malkin

Maybe I am reading it wrong, but are you saying the Preds won't give up Hamhuis even if Malkin were offered?

not what I'm saying ... the centers involved would have to be either 1) Staal or 2) Crosby

I don't want that headache & that RSL transfer agreement BS that Russia still hasn't signed

I disagree. I think Hamhuis, as far as general player value goes, would trade for much less.

Crosby is a nonstarter for sure. That's franchise suicide for us.

Staal...don't know what I feel about him in terms of his potential yet. I can't place a finger on what I could ask for if Staal were being dangled. Hamhuis + pick? Weber + pick? Klein + a young winger?

I agree with Radick.

While I love Hamhuis, if they offered Malkin for him, I'd do it.

How about Whitney and Orpik for Hamhuis and Klein?

I will fly over from Beijing, rent the car, and drive them to the airport myself.

Yeah, after reading that it doesn't look very good maybe take Klein out and I'd do it. Orpik can be great.

I'd like to have Orpik on the preds. Him and Weber are both devestating hitters.

That was my reason too. Weber and Orpik together would be awesome.

orpik is a great hitter, but at the end of the day...


would you rather have darius kasparaitis(and i'm being gracious to Orpik, here) than Wade Redden? I wouldn't.
