EAGLE-TRIBUNE ONLINE: Russ Conway reported on Sunday the Carolina Hurricanes are trying to obtain forwards Brian Rolston and PJ Axelsson from the Boston Bruins. Conway claims forwards "Jeff O'Neill and Jarislav Svoboda are trade bait".
If they would consider a slight tweek...
ROLSTON, AXELSSON (even though I hate to deal him) and GILL for O'NEILL, Kevyn ADAMS and Danny MARKOV, DO IT NOW.
Russ Conway repoted on the weekend that Carolina is trying to get Rolston and Axellson from us and shopping O' Neill and Svoboda. We should try and convince the canes to send us O' Neill and Markov or Hedican, even if we have to throw in a prospect. Then we could try and get someone like Isbister or Geoff Sanderson to take Axellsons spot.
To Boston: O'Neill and Svoboda
To Carolina: Rolston and Axie
We can all pretty much safely say Axie won't be included in any deal.. However what would it take to complete this trade minus axie.
Rolston and Hilbert??
As i've said before i'd love O'Neill on this team (even though he's struggled this season) .. He has that Allison quality, he wants the puck on his stick when the game is on the line.. Plus he's shown the ability to win in the playoffs.
