Jake Gardiner for one of our own prospects would be sweet.

Next year we'd have:

Timonen - BB
Grossmann - Schenn
Gardiner - Meszaros

Gutafsson/Gervais

Me like.
I would like that too but there's no way Winnipeg would want Coburn in a trade. If they're trading defense they would more than likely want forward(s) coming back. I think there's a chance they move Buff next offseason. They'll probably need him for next year.

He's like a football player. Fat, yet still in shape; meaning he can move around without gasping for air and a cheeseburger seconds later.

I remember watching HNIC a couple of weeks ago and they were talking about Big Buff and how he has the potential to be $7M guy in this league. They said he has all the physical tools you can have but his head is sometimes not in the game. They said if he could work on that he could be one the highest paid Dman in the league.

If we keep losing we should be taken right out of any "big named" players on the trading block thankfully. That is the only thing that will relieve me in this losing season(and maybe our draft pick). If we do continue to suck, our big moves will likely come right before, during or right after the draft.

I know this seems like common sense, but it won't stop the rumor morons from throwing our name out there.

Until Homer walks up to the podium and announces our draft pick, I won't stop being scared he'll trade that 1st.

These next five games are extremely telling. If we do good in the games, I will be terrified for that pick, but if we go something like 1-4 we are done for good. Homer will hold onto that pick and wait to see what presents itself during the offseason IMO. If we have to include it for a stud young puck mover, I am all for it. Nothing else though.

The next 5 games? I'd say the next 2. If you go 0-2 these next 2, it doesn't really matter if you win the next 3, I'd say you're out of it. We'd be 8 points behind NJ and they'd have a game in hand against us.

Talbot is not an improvement over what Hawks currently have

Shaw + Kruger are younger/cheaper and playing better this year then Talbot who is honestly overated

Hawks are fine at #3/4 C especially if they somehow get a real #2 C and drop Bolland back into 3rd line C role

Yeah this all but puts them out. Even if they win Friday, they haven't beaten a good team in a couple of weeks.

Briere isn't playing well and the Hawks couldn't possibly afford that cap hit beyond this year

One thing that I can not stand is with the Flyers playing so poorly why do we keep getting put into trade rumors about a premium puck moving defenseman? This is a move you make in the off season and not at the deadline as a team that is six spots out of being dead last.

I just mentioned this in the trade section:

Briere to the Ducks for their 1st and Andy Welinski.

Whatever contender that trades for Danny is for this years run only. Almost certain said team amnesty's him as it is so cheap compared to cap hit .

Hawks already have 2 contracts they likely need to amnesty (Monty + Olesz)... If they acquired Olesz the Flyers would have to take Montador back

Gonna be really hard to make the playoffs now with this new alignment...



The top three teams in each division will make-up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season points and regardless of division. It will be possible, then, for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three.

The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the lowest number of points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for the divisional championship.

The two divisional champions in each conference will then play in the conference finals to advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

So with Chris Kelly's broken tibia, does Briere or Fedotenko look good?

I think Lavi and Holmgren should be let go...Burke and Ruff are in the wings

Greg Brady via twitter: There are strong indications from Philadelphia this morning is that Peter Laviolette job is far from safe.
