That's what I was trying to get to. He doesn't park himself there and battle, but he will float through the area, or stand to the side for a tip/rebound.

Basically, we need a crease clearing dman. A guy who isn't afraid to stand in front of the net and someone to win faceoffs.

I guess they didn't want Desharnais instead.

No trades with St. Louis now. They got their centre in Roy.

I guess the Perron and Stewart dream (of some people) will not happen now....

au contraire they have too many forwards meow and still have to get Stewart signed. We also have many forwards but don't squash the dream.

can you feel it?

I know Jagr is getting up there, but i still think he could be very effective 3rd liner for us. He can gain the zone very easily, and is real hard to knock off the puck. I think he Eller, and Galchenyuk could do some damage.

I wouldnt really mind Penner. I think we would become a better team with either of these players. Trading for a decent defenseman inst really out of the question either.

In fact, I have a hard time thinking of a lazy player current management signed/traded for

Stewart, or Perron will likely be dealt.

Pietrangelo is still a RFA. Blues only have 7 mill to the cap and they're an internal cap team themselves.

They also have 15 forwards signed already.

I tend to agree with you. (DDs defensive effort is suspect at times).

With all this talk surrounding Kane, Bogosian and Burmistrov.... why not make a ridiculous 7 player trade with WPG!?!?!

Pacioretty + Plekanec + Desharnais + 1st + Leblanc

for

Kane + Bogosian + Burmistrov

(Pacioretty+1st/2=Kane)(Plekanec+Leblanc=Bogosian)(Desharnais+1st/2=Burmistrov)

A) Kane-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
B) Bourque-Eller-Gionta
C) Burmistrov-Briere-Prust
4) Moen-White-Parros
X) Blunden-Dumont-Thomas

1) Bogosian-Subban
2) Gorges-Diaz
3) Markov-Bouillon
X) Tinordi-Pateryn

Go easy, just messing around. Not necessarily logical but I think value might be there. This may actually fill some needs for Winnipeg. Brings in players without attitude issues of equal skill, position and ability, gives them some strength down the middle. Spitballing

Dont be surprised if Stewart or Perron are traded in the next couple of days.

We are missing a winger, and Jagr is probably not on the way to get sign by MB. Is that a sign? St-Louis are pending medical results to officialize the Roy deal. Maybe once its done, youll see Perron traded to Mtl for a 2nd rounder.

Pacioretty is better than Kane. Plekanec is better than bogosian. We would get ****ed by winnepeg if we made that trade.

I hope Roy doesn't clear his medical if it means StLouis getting their hands on DD.

Respectfully disagree. Kane has a way higher ceiling than Pacioretty, Bogosian plays a much more sought after role than Plekanec and has yet to enter his prime years. We're dealing with potential, not what the player is right now.

Trading Pac for another big body with 'perceived' higher ceiling is asinine at best.
