D. Tucker

What type of package would it take to get this guy? If we included Cullen, and Prucha, how much more would we have to include?

For some reason, I really want to see Avery-Tucker-Shanny on the same line.

I think that would give us two very solid lines. I'd hate to give up Prucha but you have to give up something to get something.

Yeah, let's get a 2 month rental for Prucha, when we have no shot of making the playoffs anyway, and he's a FA at seasons end. That's a good idea...

no thanks! Mr. Broken Foot UFA to be? And the sheer likelihood of this team turning the ship around in time to make the playoffs? (you know they'll get it going like at the end of the month, go on a tear, and just miss the playoffs by 3 points). Although Chris Drury is my #1 target next summer, the idea of having Tucker, Avery, and Hollweg all on the same time is somewhat amusing.

IDK... Realistically, why get two of the same type of player??? Right now, we a straight up sniper (Zherdev)??? Watching Shanahan starting to miss nets is absolutely killing me!!!

Sign and trade circumstances only. I would ONLy do it under those cirumstances. If he's coming and we know for a fact he wont re-sign then I agree with the rest of you- screw that.

BTW, good call with Drury this offseason n8... Him or Gomez should be our #1 Priority... Having Hollweg, Tucker and Avery on one team would no doubt give me two of the most penalized teams to root for (Rangers and Raiders)

I'd rather have Daniel Briere.

A big pass on Tucker, though.

I didn't know he was a UFA.

If say u can get a contract extension completed before the trade. What do you think is a fair deal for him? Obviously by him being a FA, the demand from Toronto can't be as high.

Personally, if we can trade for him and have him signed without having to deal with other teams fighting for his services in the offseason. That would make it a huge plus. We could possibly save money on his extension too. That's if he's willing to sign and doesn't mind not testing the FA market (which i seriously doubt).

No doubt Drury would be nice but that's not a need, our need is a #2 center. Who's going to give Drury the puck?

YOUNG SCORERS/SNIPERS... Prucha WOULD fall under this category if Renny pulled his head out of his azz and put Pruchs on Jagrs line!!! How many friggen goals did we see last year when prucha was in the right position with Jags feeding him a slam dunk??? JUST GIMME ONE SHIFT TOM!!!

No, he's a 2nd line center.

Still though, I'd prefer a true first line center like Briere and move Nylander down to play 2nd line center with Shanny.

At that, I'll add that people get too caught up in line numbers. Even if you get Briere, stick him on the 2nd line. The icetime isn't going to be any different because he'll be playing equal ES minutes in addition to first line PP.

youd have to be an idiot to trade prucha for Tucker.

this team aint making the playoffs. tucker maybe has a year or 2 left.

thats the kinda trade you make if youre going for a cup run.

Your going to run into cap issues i think. Drury is going to cost 5-6 million. Tucker is an UFA and will cost 3-4 probably. I think the rangers need a top D-man before another forward. Some quality depth forwards would also be valuable.

Hartnell aint bad but at this point, I'd much rather have Callahan in that spot.

Hartnell is a LW, Callahan a RW. Hartnell would take Hossa, Hall, roster spot.
