I'd like him too but it looks like the Canes are very happy with him. I have a feeling they will resign him soon.

You mean the perennial 25+ goal scorer Bourque?

Trade for Murray and Paros. Will cost little to nothing and add some sandpaper.

From all the games I saw, Murray is pretty terrible. I know a lot of SJ fans want him gone (some saying for free even), and I fear he may be way past his best before date.

For the price it might be worth the risk to add another veteran, especially if other teams have high asking prices for rentals. I think I would give Murray a shot, if you can't get excited and step your game up in MTL in the playoffs then yeah, you're done.

Would be a cheaper option.

I'm just in love with the idea of getting Vanek.

I'd love to get Jagr as well. But why should Stars trade him if they are still in playoff race ?

Look at Gaborik's history ...he had 40 goals just last year, he didn't just suddenly lose all his talent. I can say it's VERY likely that Gionta's production will be more or less the same next year or even worse while with Gaborik, I think everyone would agree that they expect him to put up a lot more points.

The guys I am bringing in are 65 years old but I am getting rid of 64 year old so that's a bad argument.

Yes Asham is 3 inches shorter than Moen but Gabroik is 5 inches bigger than Gionta. Aasham also destroys Moen in the physical aspect of the game.
And he's been payed a whopping 2.5 million for that extra point...
I don't want inconsistent, injury prone, may or may not work out, 30+ year olds being added to this team....that's the management of old that would make such a move and they did make that move in 2009........ why on earth would we create such a shake up when we're winning and gionta is playing a big role in our success.....the guys all heart, thats why he's our capatain...maybe he's not part of our future plans but hes great for us now.....dude im sorry, but it just makes no sense. Diaz...a first rounder? valuable assets down the drain for a journeyman and a roll of the dice on yet another disinterested hockey player,,,,enough...gauthier and gainey are gone.

Just a quick question.

6'4" right handed center, Andreas Engqvist just got 36 points in 48 games in the KHL.....is he still an option for 4th line center? Is the Habs still own his rights?

I really think MB is going to be fairly quiet around the deadline. I wouldn't be surprised to see him add an enforcer for the last few weeks of the season so we don't pick up more bruises than need be going into the playoffs, but that's it.

Between June 15th and July 4th though, watch out. Expect one, maybe two big moves.

Agreed he can't make changes now cause it's going so well but this summer he will continue to put his stamp on this team I suspect at least one trade at the draft, a few key free agent pickups and a big surprise this summer

Yeah, right now it's a sellers market. MB has made it clear that we aren't going to mortgage anything for a quick rental.

This summer we're in excellent shape cap-wise, and with the cap going down some teams might be looking at organizational overhauls. Hopefully we can benefit from that and our draft pick depth.

*sigh* I miss Lapierre. He was a form of psychological warfare that should be banned by the Geneva Convention, but he had the heart in the right place.

I would have added Clarkson also but you know he is gonna get a 5 year deal for $5M per so I don't think that fits in with MB style. The reason I only added cost effecient type players .. and Raymond just cause he is so fast

Everyone is chasing the same free agents. That means the asking price is high. I don't think anyone, MB included thought we'd be in this position to be buyers. We can dangle a few bobbles but to get Clowe the Sharks will want too much and not just our castoffs. We're in a position of strength as well because we have NHL Ready prospects like Weber and Pateryn that won't likely get a real chance here for a couple years.

So who is expendable and attractive from the lineup.

Moen... I like him but he's replaced in our lineup when Bourque returns. He'd do well in SJ.
Kaberle.... Captain Obvious here.
Gionta.... Love him, but who else you gonna move in our top 9 to make room.


What prospects are we willing to move that are attractive enough.
We're deep at d... maybe Morgan Ellis or Pateryn.
Louis Leblanc might be good bait too. I don't think he'll ever get a real shot here.

For Clowe I'd give up one Roster player and 2 prospects. or a roster player 1 prospect and a 2nd rounder.

Patches/DD/Gally
Ryder/Pleks/Bourque
Galchenyuk/Eller/Clowe
Armstong/White/Prust

No.

You dump Ryder before you dump Gionta. Gionta brings a work ethic, a desire to win, the necessary leadership qualities, and enough point production to make Ryder the more expendable of the two.

Exactly what I was gonna say.....what kind of message does is that send to your guys......he's a likeable guy in that room...he's their leader....u don't mess with that....he's a good captain....keep him around through the end of next season and you can even keep him for depth after that if u need to because he's gonna come cheaper.
