Best option for restocking comes with the Wings if they'd be interested. Take your pick of Tatar/Ferraro/Nyquvist/Jurco/Frk. I'd even be willing to take back Bertuzzi or Samuelson.

Once again, I'm not supporting the idea of trading Gabby just to trade him, but if they can restock the forwards in the system (once Fasth/Lindberg/St. Croix turn pro the only one left with any real offensive potential is Nieves and he's 2-3 years away) then it might be worth exploring.

I'm willing to take back Dubi too if CLB would do Boyle/Asham one of the 3rds for Dubi. They'd save 1.5 million in cap and for us Dubi+Miller+Pyatt>Boyle+Miller+Pyatt.

Feel free to yell at me
Gaborik is signed for one more year at $7.5M. Booth has two more years at $4.25M cap and $9.25M in real dollars. Garrison has 5 more years. $4.6M cap. $22M in real dollars. Why would the Rangers do that? VAN can compliance buyout Booth and Ballard for the money to pay Gaborik IF there was a fit between the team.

There really is no fit with Vancouver, like you said, I don't want either one of those guys, I doubt they would give up Kassian or Kessler, what else they got?

I'd love him too. Rumblings in Bawston also say that the B's are probably not resigning him.

Ugh don't want Horton at all. Don't like his smug face and injury proneness.

Another RW. That would be predicated by moving Gaborik for either a LW or center.

I'd like him but the only problem is he's another RW.. unless we moved Nash back to his natural LW.

Even if you move Gaborik, RW is the last non-goalie position we need to add a big ticket player at.

Horton, when healthy, would be perfect.

anyway back to Horton who I would love, we can't realistically offer him 4+ mil (which is what he's making now) to sign him unless they moved Gaborik or something.

No need for an airplane, I'll carry him to Washington.

Backstrom is a hell of a player.

I don't think Washington is going to go for having Gaborik and Ovechkin

The Rangers have liked Brassard since his draft year. He's young enough that he could develop with the younger core, and, to me, would signal that the Rangers are likely to amnesty Richards...meaning the Rangers are pleased with Stepan's development, and consider him a #1, while Brassard slides into the 2nd line center spot.

Backstrom is on the decline? I'll take my chances with a declining Backstrom...best player on the Caps right now.

I'd be satisfied with a Fisher/Blum/#1 pick for Gaborik and a 3rd.

Are you saying around would rather Eriksson over Jamie Benn, or are are you saying Dallas is more likely to deal Eriksson over Benn?

When Torts put him out with Callahan with Nash on the left he was out of place.

Nash said he is more comfortable on the rightt side. he's the teams bast player. He clearly works well on the Right side. Why change that?

the 'when healthy' part is a big 'if' but i agree. i'm a big fan...

and i personally think the bruins are nuts to let him go...it is ridiculous how much better the bruins are in recent years with him in the lineup. it just seems like when he is healthy everything fits into place perfectly for them, but when he's out they start shifting guys around and become a mess. assuming of course that they don't replace him with perry, i think they will regret it.

There are not that many rental options out there IMO. A lot of nothing in this free agent class with teams that are going to be falling out of the race or looking to rebuild. Morrow might be an interesting player if they choose him. Change of scenery might be best for him.

I would not want to give up a lot for any move for a rental. Would have to be a player with a longer contract or under team control for a while. While that may mean giving up more of an asset to get them, it would better suit this team.

Kesler is not even playing. He broke his foot. That guy is damaged goods. He isn't close to the player he was before getting hurt in the 2011 playoffs.

i think the bigger issue is that there are alot more good RW than LW (or atleast it seems that way). every winger that is mentioned is another RW so we have tons of depth down the right side and nothing down the left...

so even if nash works on the right side, wouldn't it make more sense to put nash on the left where he played most of his career to create balance then to move gaborik or callahan who have never played LW before?

i like nash on the right too...but unless you are trading gabby for a legit LW, then moving nash to the left probably makes the most sense.
