This is so BS. So many theories on hfboards just snowball out of control because people love to "group-think". I don't know who it is that started this idea that Clowe is slow and useless? He's a wrecking-ball and skates hard, doesn't have agility, obviously, but he can definitely move. The guy is a deterrent and a nightmare for dmen on the forecheck. Goes to the net and has enough offense to provide secondary scoring. And he's a great fighter.
I don't want to overpay for him, but I definitely want him on my team.
It's really not an amazing offer or anything...you guys put way too much stock into 2nd rounders
Jagr's playing great hockey this year and is the most proven playoff commodity on the market. I don't necessarily want us to go after him but I figured his value would be at least that, certainly more if teams start to get desperate.
I'd look at this, but would remove the pick. Haven't seen O'Byrne much, but he's the type of D they need for the playoffs. He'd presumably be of more use than Weber who is healthy scratched, but I haven't seen him play to offer a better opinion.
I haven't been this entertained for years
Nothing better than die hard Habs fans deciding what their team needs most...
Add in the trade rumour speculations LeBrun says this Dreger says that etc...
This is great...
Personally I think we need a top 6 forward and a top 4 D.
We ain't getting them this year
I'm not believing any rumour I hear until Aaron Ward chimes in...
Just a word for Ryan..."Iggy did it"
Rumblings on the Stars board was that the Jagr offer came from Montreal, given your multitude of 2nd round picks in the draft. Also factor in the whole Pleks/Jagr situation, and it kind of makes sense.
To be honest I'm hoping Dallas re-signs him, because he's been the best part of this season for me as a Stars fan.
Will certainly understand if he gets moved, though, and if Montreal ups their offer and lands him anyways, I'll wish him all the best for you guys.
