I figured that Lou would make a move today to acquire someone and then insert them at practice tomorrow. Makes sense.

Jagr is going to get a hat trick against us Thursday and in one fell swoop thumb his nose at us for not getting him and knock us out of the playoffs.

Let's play the guess what Lou will do game.

What we WANT Lou to do: Trade Clarkson OR get an upgrade for forward.

What Lou WILL do: Announce Kostopolous is out 4-6 weeks and call up Tim Sestito.

We have no way of knowing what he's asking for.

If we trade him, we're losing 20+ goals AGAIN.

You literally are never, ever happy with anything on this board, ever.

WHYYYYY would we trade clarkson?!??! wtf does that accomplish?!?!? either ****ing sell, or ****ing buy. trading one guy isnt going to make a damn bit of a difference, especially if its clarkson.

the most likely scenario is lou will do neither.

But when all you have to offer is bottom-pairing D-men, goofy UFA wingers who can't score, and low-round draft picks, it's kinda hard to address weaknesses. (i.e. "too bad to be buyers")

Well hey with Lou that may very will be the plan! After all Parise and Sykoras goals were replaced with Krys Barch, Tom Kostopolous, and Bobby Butler.

What this team needs can't be fixed by deadline deals, at least not to pay dividends for this year. We need a Parise "replacement", a true top winger. Not saying he has to play like Parise or even be a LW, just someone who can shuffle others down into their more ideal roles. Then we need a true top pairing d-man. Again, one who can bump others down into more comfortable roles for themselves. Then you shuffle other parts around or out as needed.

Dunno why everyones expecting Lou to make a huge move, last year was the year, we're in for at least a couple years of mediocrity

That's odd, does that mean they'll be running 3 goalies in Albany? Or are they assigning one of Frazee or Kinkaid to Trenton?

Edit: Didn't know Trenton's season was over, makes sense.

Oh come one

You and I both know this Hawks team isn't as good as record

Oduya 3rd in TOI , Crawford in net , Dave Bolland as #2 C ,etc

Hawks had chance to get real #2 C and make run for cup but instead let our rival acquire the guy who fit for nothing

Please... there's about half of this fanbase who's saying the exact same thing as me, so I don't know why you feel the need to point the finger my way.

I don't like Clarkson in the role we're using him ATM and that's the role he'll get if we do resign him cause we have no other options.

I like our team, just don't agree with every little thing and decision that is made by Lou. Being a fan of a certain team doesn't mean you have to lick ass 24/7.

I cheer for them when they're playing well and I do the opposite when they're playing like crap. The same goes for the decisions that our made by our Gm.

My reasoning if you can get someone to overpay for Clarktard either a 1st (God Please!) or 2 2nd's it really makes us having to give up that 1st round pick next year easier.

Imagine 2 1st round picks in this years draft @ the Pru Center? I'll be there and I think that would be pretty cool to see. And I believe that this is going to be a good draft? (Correct if I'm wrong). Completely worth letting a JJ or Anderson come up and play in his spot to secure some more good future players!
