I like Bourque but if the package is Bourque, Blum 1st something else needs to be added

Not sure about that. I actually prefer Blum and Hornvist.
Blum has the better size can handle the physicality of the east.
Hornqvist can play top 6, he would be a nice LW option. Bourque is a bottom 6 player.
Bourque is 5'10. Love the guy, but I don't see him surviving the east. a couple of hits from Chara or Lucic and he is on the shelf.

It's sad isn't it? I liked Tootoo over the off-season. Thought he would be a good replacement for Prust. Great skater, hard hitter, tough as nails.

Blum is pretty soft. Bourque is so similar to Callahan it's actually one of funny

He should have kept his mouth shot. Either he is throwing the players under the bus or is divulging something that shouldn't have been.
What makes even less sense is people saying Torts is stifling offensive creativity when he the coach says something like that.

fair enough, but if the coach preaches defense, what would the players focus on? offense or defense?

I know but we need somebody who can produce offensively too, we already have a Callahan.


Edit: On Blum, he can pair up with somebody like Staal or McD. He is an offensive Dman. but he has the size to take a hit and make a play.

Can never have too many Callahans.

Bourque would be tied for first on the team in goals. He's a solid young player.

Not a player that should be the centerpiece of a Gabby trade, though, IMO.

He is shooting 21%, that won't last.

I'd love Gabriel Bouque. I think Nashville would make a lot of sense for Gaborik, for both teams.

Don't suppose we can pry Colin Wilson from them, can we?

Nope. He's their best offensive player. If anything, they want to add more Wilsons in the lineup.

Preds fans are higher on Hornqvist than Bourque. And to tell you the truth either one would work for me, I don't want to split hairs.

Yeah, they got pretty mad when Wilson was brought up, he was a deal breaker.

It's nice to dream though. If Slats could get Wilson for Gabby....

Bouque, Blum, Ellis, as well as guys like Vesey and Watson, could all be intriguing pieces in a package for Gaborik.

Winnepegs GM is on record saying they are looking for a scoring RWer. Something to watch.

The dark horse is Detroit. I wonder if Holland is willing to give Zetterburg and Datsyuk one more shot a cup.

They do not want to be suckers doing a 1 for 1 for McNeil.
It is possible to think of a bigger deal of Boyle +, but some of us need to stop insisting on Boyle for McNeil as 1 for 1, and either expand, or accept the upgrade and move on.

That has always been the destination that has made the most sense to me.

Olsen is quite old for a prospect. He is there Sanguinetti.

the pieces don't fit though. Their top talent is off the table, left with Jurco + one of Tatar or Nyquist at best.
Jurco is 2 years away, Tatar needs more seasoning, maybe a year, the only NHL ready is Nyquist. Not as good as Nashville.

If we can agree on what to add which Chicago will accept, sure. Otherwise YES on Olsen, unless you can cough up a better offer.
