Imagine trading a chance at Hall and RNH to get Gudbranson and Hamilton?
Gudbranson and Hamilton are very nice prospects but Hall and RNH are special.

I like this, a lot. What do you guys say?

We could come out of the draft with Reinhart and Pysyk. That would be pretty sick.
take that out, and then ask the scouts how big a drop off there is of their 1-2-3 Dmen, if not much go for it.

You know everybody is so obsessed with getting a dman but like some people have been saying, lots can change in a short period of time.

If you go read OTT's board on HF, they are talking about desperately getting a dman and are talking about the chance of missing on drafting Hamilton last year( instead of Zibenajad).

Last year I remember all their fans wanted was a forward but a few trades (Turris) and development of some players and all of a sudden forward isn't an issue but defense is.

That's why always take BPA. Right now I read people say that this draft has 3 A level prospects (Yakupov, Grigorenko, Forsberg) and then their is a dropoff. So if some scouts are saying their is a dropoff in talent after the 1st 3, why trade down?

Remember lots can change in a short period of time. Defense is a weakness now but it might not be by next year

That is exactly how I look at it. Most drafts there seems to be a guy or two a step above everyone else. Those are the guys you target, no matter their position.

I don't see why not, considering this is a rumor/proposal thread.

Don't agree with Forsberg being in the same group as the other 2, but otherwise this is an excellent post. If we somehow signed Suter, and then say Klefbom came over and shocked everyone by making the team (and playing like he belongs), our d would look like

Suter - Petry
Smid - Gilbert
Whitney - Klefbom
Sutton

and suddenly it's actually quite strong and we'd be kicking ourselves for not taking Grigorenko. You take BPA. It's absolutely stupid not to

and that's about as credible as me saying I heard a rumour that Pittsburgh is looking to pick up Martindale. Supposedly the offer was Crosby and their next 2 1st round picks. Apparently Tambo is trying to hold out for one more 1st though

I have no problem with you posting it. Just find it a little odd how you're defending someone who has thrown out 150 different rumors this year and none have happened, and the fact you made a point of only quoting Treena's Oil rumors.

And yet people couldn't get enough of his/her tweets last year, enough credibility to garner national attention. I saw the tweet in question as well and found it baffling, so who knows...I find it odd considering last year.

I haven't read the entire CBA but I know the rule about bonuses in contracts. It's fairly common knowledge and was widely reported when the CBA was signed.

Even if a rumour monger didn't know that rule, were they reporting real goings-on, then the rumour itself would be realistic. What is more plausible? Do you think it is more likely that the Oilers actually offered an illegal contract to Hemsky and then someone leaked the details of it to manbearpig, or that manbearpig simply didn't know that rule when "she" invented the rumour?

"Her" stuff may be good for a chuckle from time to time, but no weight should be put into it at all. With a bar set so low it's tough to say this, but manbearpig is even less reliable than Ek.

I'm not defending he/her whatever it is. He/She did call the Eager and Belanger signing, so why not be open to some of the things that have been posted? Obviously you have to take any rumor with a grain of salt no matter how credible the source is.

The rumour mill is based on gossip and speculation. Even the guys in the know rarely get it right. Until Bob posts it I'm not buying it. I find some of the HF posters speculative trades on here more interesting and realistic.

Yann Danis was just called up.

Maybe there is some truth to those rumors of Bulin heading out.

edit - Ah, nm, just saw the thread with the injury update.
