How do you know what BM is doing or not doing. Maybe teams don't want to trade with Division/Conference rivals. Maybe they are asking for way to much from the Ducks.

I highly doubt he is just sitting around doing nothing.

This.

Funny how people assume Murray isn't doing anything. Like he is playing golf and drinking it up while the deadline looms near.

This is all speculation on your part. Other than Ribeiro I haven't seen any of these names anywhere near the rumor mill.

Laich, Fis, Wilson, Smith won't be dealt. Korp won't be traded from Phoenix to Ducks.

Goc and Bailey Help in no way whatsoever.

It's like you just want Murray to make any trade and you don't care who we get or how they fit in, just as long as the Ducks do something.

What are you basing the lazy comments off of? All those times you are in the Ducks office, witnessing what Murray is up to. Give me a break.

Just say, I hate Murray, I want him gone no matter what. That would be better than masking it as "he has done nothing".

By the way 6th worst team last season to 3rd best this season.

Thanks. I have a few questions:

1. Do you even look at players' contracts before you post? I'm not keen on tying up 4.5 million in cap space for the next 4 years.

2. You'd trade Sbisa for a rental?

3. Did you know it takes two teams to tangle? I'd love Eriksson, but that doesn't mean Dallas wants to trade him.

The guy asked for some names so thats what i gave him... any of those guys could be available for the right price, rumour mill or not.


and no man, im not talking about making a trade for the sake of making a trade, we need to add somthing at this deadline in order to remain competitive add one more piece to our puzzle. Goc would help in a way, i have a certain feel this would be the perfect situation for him and he wouldnt cost the bank to get.


Hf boards is really just for homers for the teams.

We are in a slump 4-4-2... we beat dallas not even in playoff contention, only challenging opponent in the next two weeks is LA. Hel

We need to add an element to the roster to compete with (healthy blackhwask with sharp and hossa and now handuz) (bolsterd st louis with Jbow and leopold now on the back end) Vancouver now adding a legitatme 2nd line centre in roy and if and when they deal luo some tangible assets there.)

La certainly is not goign to be walked over, nor is detriot(seeing as they just beat us back to back) and SJ even with out clowe is going to be tough again back to back loses to them.

thats just the west,

Pittsburgh obviosuly decided to go for it, and boston is moving into the same fold... all the legitmate teams, same with the rangers, with clowe, although not assured they will make the playoffs it does help there chances, and if so that team when playing to snuff, can beat anyone.


We need somthing to add to our top 4 d or 2nd line centre or both if possible

Every other team in the running has done somthing significant other than the ducks.

No point to be complacent now, why waste a strong played season on anything but as far as we can make it... its been rough the last 3 seasons, this team needs a long run.. in order to better attract people to not stay here on a rental basis... its that simple...

You're the only homer. You think Goc is a #2 center. You'd trade Sbisa for a rental. Want me to keep going?

Do you remember our deadline additions when we won the cup?

Murray wants to improve the team, but he's not going to overpay.

1. just because people don't agree with you doesn't make them homers.
2. every team loses a few, and if going over .500 is our slump; ill take it.
3. blackhawks, st louis, and la were all very good teams before their trades and we have shown we can hang with them as is. If Roy is a legitimate 2C then so is koivu, their production is remarkably similar.

I would like the Ducks to go and get some size. Ott comes to mind.

Ducks are going to need players like that to make us go deep into the playoffs.

What do you guys/girls think about that?

i'm the homer? my reconmandations have been dealing draft picks and smith pelly if the deal is right...


and do you remeber our deals we did before hand , we didnt need to worry about the deadline...


Our defence is not as good,

we had 4 complete lines .... 1c in macdonald 2c in getzlaf 3 c in pahlsson 4c marchant was it ?

2006 - 2007 was magical, this team shows the same characteristics in player types ...

however we need a 2c... regardless... its self evident.

if the deadline goes by tommrow and BM has done nothing, or at least offers up an explanation as to why he did nothing (understandable if the market wasn't there for us... but the man should just get bold and kick some tires try some things out)

why waste a season..... it makes no sense..]


and with those teams adding players, as you saw last year a 7 game series dosen't matter what seed your in, this is going to be the most up in the air playoffs in the west in a long time.

Tell me why we shouldn't add, every other team has or is looking to... id take picks from this draft for somthing more reliable at the 2c... or the top 4 d ,

if we dont, its mystifying, every team who has a shot is bulking up... we need to at least bring in somthing that will help us

Yes, you're the homer. You specifically said deal Sbisa for a rental. Enough said.

Sure, the 06-07 team was good, but you're trying to tell me there weren't holes in the lineup?

We aren't wasting a season, we just aren't overpaying for iffy players.

edit: I want to improve our lineup, and I think we will. But we need to keep looking -- Roy and Regehr aren't worth the asking price.

In 06-07? Nope. That team had no holes.

Is Jamie McBain considered a puck moving d-man(THN says he's an OD)? As I've said twice in this thread, I think our transition game stinks and must be addressed.

Anyone else agree?

You missed a big point. Some people build through trades, some build through drafts.

It is clear this is a draft team as evident by the talent of the prospect pool and the emergence of young prospects.

Watch this http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?...d=nhl:topheads

Note what is said. A team that wins 1 is built through trades, a team that is at the top for years is built on drafting. Would you rather trade for a shot at a cup this year. Or let younger players get experience and be in the race for a cup next year, and the year after, and years after that.

Only minor one it may have had was filled by adding May at the deadline.

Holes on this years team are harder to fill than that, but none are so gaping that they are life or death. We made it to second in the conference without a bonafide #2 center, I dont see why all of a sudden we're screwed without one. Its a nice thing to add if possible, but we're still a very good team even if we stand apt.
