I'd need Strome and Reinhart for Saad.

That's my way of saying I really don't want the Hawks to trade him for anything short of an overpayment. You NEED young, promising players with low salaries that can produce. They're few and far in between, and they allow you to fill out your roster in such a manner that you have youth and depth, while maintaining a decent level of production and allowing you to focus the bulk of your money on maintaining your current stars until the young guys are due a raise...hopefully about the time the cap rebounds.

As an Islanders fan, I can definitely respect the reasoning here.

This didn't make any sense from the get go. Staple is usually reliable. I wonder if he was given some bad info.

Such a pointless rumour. Was never going to come to fruition. Saad won't be traded - I think that's almost certain.

Really not sure of Saad's value, something around Nino and Streit? I could be way off though.
You're way off. See those three guys you listed, at least one would be going the other way, unless Hawks are trying to pay big time for Tavares.

Lols at the Streit + packages

I don't see the Hawks moving Saad,

But, with the two gms having recently discussed Vis/Streit for prospects, it does make sense that Snow will have discussed the Hawks prospect pool with his scouts. So, although he won't land Saad, can't blame Snow for liking the reports about Saad and asking if he's available.

I would say that about you in this case... unless the Isles are moving half their team there is no single asset under Tavares who is worth what Saad is today...

Isles fans should get it... they are asking the moon for a future PF... who is in the AHL... why would they think one who is in the NHL and producing is worth any less than their demands... or a less proven player

I may not know Saad's promise or upside, but I can't think it approaches Strome.

A year next to Tavares and you'll see what I mean.

Horrible offer.

And there's no way the Islanders get Saad. I'm not willing to give up Strome/Reinhart for him and it doesn't look like Streit will be traded either.

Promise is nice...Saad is PPG the last 15 games, and half of that is with Frolik not Hoss on the RW...Plays PP, PK...I think Hawks will likely keep him.

Pretty hilarious how Hawks fans overvalue their prospects.

I agree.

Perhaps retribution for baseless rumors of Nielsen or Streit to Chicago?

We all know it would take quite a bit to pry Nielsen from the Isles. The guy is cheap, young, plays in all situations including on the point if need be, is top 5 annually for the Selke... he's their swiss army knife.

Perhaps Snow didn't take kindly to Bowman stirring the pot.

Who knows?


Either way, I'll say it now... people will laugh at the idea of a Saad / Strome trade a year after Strome make the NHL roster. There won't be much of a comparison there in the end. If you think otherwise, you've clearly never seen Strome play.

I can't speak to Reinhart, but Strome... forget it.

I have a feeling the Isles will see him on their roster this season and into the playoffs -- and he won't be going back to the AHL after that.

That's an interesting view of the situation. Could also just be a media move by Snow to make it look like he's trying to do anything.

To me, it doesnt make sense for Chitown to move him...nor the isles to trade for him IF you believe that Streit isnt being moved.

It would be prospects for a young player who is basically just past being a prospect himself. I couldve seen something like Streit+Nino for him with maybe a condition pick involved, but why would isles trade Strome who just started his pro career(and scored on his first shot) or Reinhart, who is a big part of their plans.

Garth Snow is blowing smoke. We know Saad will require too much from the Isles and this is his out to say he tried to get some talent at the deadline.

there's literally no way Saad is being traded unless he's in a package for a star player. I'm fairly certain Saad is going to be a star himself, so personally I wouldn't trade him for anything really.
