Kesler would be the number one player that I would want off that team. The guy takes it to another level in the playoffs.

They've had Blum on the block for a while and they just traded a top six rw so I can see that trade happening.

Agreed. Anybody saying they don't want him because he's a ****** or whatever needs to give their head a shake. The reason people hate him is because of how good he is, coupled with being a ****** - not necessarily a bad thing.

Blum's value has fallen a lot in the past year or so. Not worth a Hemsky anymore. But maybe could re-develop his game with EDM.

Nick Foligno/Colin Greening seem like obtainable bottom 6 guys for MacT to inquire about.

And Torres is another idea, especially since he played for MacT.

He's a walking band-aid now. We have enough of those.

Here's a few new ideas. Still keeping with the same familiar names but how about.

To Stl: 7th Overall
To Edmonton Berglund

To Clb: Hemsky
To Edm: Foligno

Trade Belanger for late pick

Buy out Horcoff

Sign Zidlicky, Smithson, Scuderi, Fedotenko, and Orr


Next years line up

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Foligno-Gagner-Yakupov
Fedotenko-Berglund-Paajarvi
Brown-Smithson-Orr
Smyth

Zidlicky-Smid
Schultz-Scuderi
Schultz-Potter
Fistric

It's not great but would definitely change the look of the team.

I really like that idea of Orr! Now there's a same I don't think I've seen mentioned yet. Colton is exactly what we lack.

The Oilers already ready have an expensive center who's game is declining.

Plus, the one they have doesn't "play up" being hurt on the ice to show how "tough" he is.

was anyone listening after 4 PM on Team 1260 yeaterday when Ryan Rishaug (sp?) basically said, without actually saying it, that the same deal that Nashville got for Martin Erat, which involved Filip Forsberg, was apparently offered to the Oilers and Tambo couldn't pull the trigger? if this is true, i am pretty mad and now VERY glad Mr. Conservative has been fired! thoughts?

Agreed. Can't see it happening. Plus all the non-hockey stuff they do for that city. It would be a PR nightmare. They have to get rid of the side show though. They have some really good pieces, just need a new message (Lindy Ruff?) and move some of the clowns.

^Thought so. Although a lot of scouts are finding holes in Forsberg's game. Holes that no one was talking about before the draft. Maybe it's why he fell to 11th or whatever.

but hemsky isn't worth as much as you think, either.
he's an injury prone, under performing player who hasn't had a healthy season where he has played well since 2008-2009.

I think that may actually be fair. Hemsky has very little value now and he is an injury risk. Plus, I think he needs to be moved to make room. I'd take what I can get at this point and it wouldn't take very much.

Why do people hate on draft picks? It amazes me how before a draft Nail Yakupov is just "a draft pick" but once he's selected and plays half a season he's our best goal scorer and a future 40 goal guy.

It's an overpayment.

Yes. The 7th Overall pick is an overpayment. Are we talking about the same draft pick here? I am floored anybody would consider this but we all have our opinions.

Since when are draft picks better than real NHL players?
edit: I really like Berglund so maybe I'm biased but Don't Monahan and Lindholm project to be similar?

The reason we lack a Colton Orr is because we've had a number of players just like him and they all prove to be worthless. Regardless of what Don Cherry might try to tell the world.

Wasn't it the 'imbalanced' officiating that caused them to lose the series? Surely it wasn't the players.

Would Grabovski, Kulemin, Gardiner, Rielly, 1st even get it done? That would be crazy..
It would be hilarious if the Leafs swapped cores with the Nucks and won the Cup. This is the only scenario under which I would enjoy the Leafs winning the Cup.

Agreed.

I'm not sure if it's because they're playing well in Toronto this year, but guys like Orr, Brown and McLaren aren't generally suited up in the playoffs. So why are we trying to poach them from Toronto?

In a perfect world my fourth line buries them in their own end for the entirety of their shift, which happens to be what Boston has done in their series.

The only thing that I'd take from this Toronto team is their compete level, because quite honestly, they aren't very good.

Holes or no holes wouldn't Forsberg be something that you could flip at the draft more easily?

Although I'm not going to blame Tambo. The whole freaking team of senior, mid-level, lower level management was there at TDD. I have to think ST would've asked for people's opinions.
