i know this is a total pipe dream but if they pulled off jame's trade of ennis/roy/grags/pick or mcnabb for getzlaf, i think we'd look scary.

Vanek-Getzlaf-Pommer is really the only set line, lindy juggles everything else too much
Leino-Adam-Stafford
Gerbe-Hecht-Kassian
Chewy-Goose-Ellis

No way would I trade Ennis for Steen. Boyes for Steen seems fair.

Buffalo greatly needs a center but from everything I've heard about Getzlaf this season i'm a little timid on making that deal as it would cost a fortune for a guy who's just not playing very good. I can understand an offensive slump(16pts in 23gp is not terrible) but I've heard he's even lacking the great defense he usually plays(-13 in 23gp). Maybe he's like those Latin baseball players who lie about their age, he's been bald for years.

And about as desirable for the Blues as Connolly back to the Sabres.

If Getzlaf's available, and you have a package that the Ducks are willing to take for him there's no way you don't pull the trigger for him. He'd automatically be the team's best player. Players like Getzlaf don't come around often. I'd trade Ennis, Stafford, and a 1st for him with almost no hesitation.

I would make that deal (doubt the ducks would) but other players would have to come back as Anaheim is at the contract limit.

Are you two forgetting the Blues traded Boyes to the Sabres in the first place? I really don't think they're going to deal one of their best checking forwards for a 2nd go at a contract they clearly wanted to jettison.

Interesting that these two would be trading partners. Neither team can add salary at this point, so I'm not sure what kind of deal they could negotiate.

Well said. He is everything we've needed for years:

-size
-toughness
-#1 center
-Stanley Cup
-leadership

I may not agree with you a lot, but this was a pretty bad pick. Pysyk tops out as a second pairing defensman while Etem is looking like a legitimate scorer,

It would be cool to get any one of the Ducks top line forwards. In this order I would prefer:

Ryan
Getzlaf
Perry

I don't particularly like Getzlaf at all, but I would probably love him as a Sabre.

Wow, I must be in the minority here. I really don't care if I get any trade news the minute it happens or an hour after it happens
Point is, I'll get it.

Wait, is this a trade that's going to happen soon? I figured it would be a few days before we knew if anything was up. But people talking about refreshing Twitter and such has me excited...

My position, I spent all day slacking/tuned out of my classes today waiting for news and the like. Luckily classes are winding down, but those 13 pages aren't looking too inviting right now.
