He must have put on the lounds...looks slowet and not as agile...but all those hits to his head also seem to have fogged his focus and reaction timing...whatever guys are skating arlund him too easily or he is mot in proper position or making poor decisions too often incliding bad clear attempts too often and with slower reaction movement. ..well...now Leddy had to try to bail him out too often..whatever he is way off form this year...BTW...lose the beatd...it is just adding more weight slowing him down and more heat tp fog hid brain...you bet he has regresef...get hom to a gym this smet and get him a focus and intensity coach!
Trade Seabs?? Is the OP high? I admit he hasn't had a great year, but the dude is a top pair defenseman and one of the best in the NHL and you want to trade to use the money to keep two dudes that arent dmen? That makes a **** load of sense.
While we are trading one of the best dmen in the league I say while we are at it lets trade Toews, Kane, and Hoss and replace them with career AHLers. We really should get rid of Toews you know since he hasn't produced for us yet in the playoffs.
I still think the Oilers would give up Gagner and Paajarvi for a Seabrook and Toews package. Get 'er done, Stan.
Yeah right, Toews and Seabrook have never had 8 points combined in a game. Toews and Seabrook alone aren't enough to get Gagner, we would have to add a 1st and probably TT. Would be worth it though, 8th nights all nights.
I agree. If you trade him you would have to get back someone just like him.
Too many people discount hits and blocked shots when looking at defenseman. I don't get it. Those things that don't show up on the standard score sheet are the things he thrives on. He's more of the "behind-the-scenes" kind of defenseman.
Not really. core is Toews, Kane, Sharp, Hossa, Keith, and Seabrook. Bowman made that crystal clear after the Cup win. Pending an epic collapse from Seabrook, which he hasn't had (yet) there's no way any of the above mentioned 6 players would ever, ever, EVER be moved.
There is no realistic upgrade on Seabrook. Think about it, if Seabs (a top pairing #1/#2 dman) the Hawks would HAVE to get a #1/#2 guy back. What teams are looking to swap out their # 1 dmen? Vancouver with Edler is the only guy i can think of.
