Because we want him? Wait...that's not how it works?

You mean everything on the interwebs isn't true?

I have this wonderful/awful feeling that in a few hours we're gonna see a tweet from lebraun that says "BREAKING: CLB and NSH have made a trade! Stay Tuned"

Then 10 minutes later: "Done. Pahlsson to NSH for 5th rounder"

I mean, why wouldn't we prefer a 7 million dollar center with one more goal than Shea Weber?

Weber also has more goals than Henrik Sedin. What a useless bum

Even though Stastny is overpaid, he would be a great addition.

I'm not saying he's a bad player, but he's basically a top tier defensive forward. Mike Fisher on steroids.

If we can only have one forward in that pay grade, are you sure that's how you'd want to spend it?

At this point, I think all we really need to have a very good forward line-up is a true offensive center. Fisher and Legwand are awesome as #2 and #3 (in either order), but neither of them are top line guys. I think our wingers are fine, especially if we get Rads back. The reasons I like Stastny better than Nash are 1. he's a center instead of a winger and 2. he's about 1 million cheaper.

But...if i have to settle for nash....fine

I think you are selling him a bit short. The kid was a PPG player just a couple years ago and has playmaking abilities that Fisher can only dream of.

I get that he isn't the best potential piece out there, but we can't keep waiting.

Said this before and I'll say it again.

Yes, Stastny and Nash are a little overpaid. Yes, Roy is a little small. Yes, Hemsky is made of glass. Yes, Carter may or may not have locker room issues. Yes, Semin may or may not be a team player. The point is, if they were perfect, their team wouldn't be trading them. You just aren't going to find perfect top lines forwards on the trade market very often, if ever. There is always a reason. You just have to find the right fit for you.

And be announced three hours after by the time the paperwork goes through.

I agree I'm not a huge Statsny fan at his price tag. Of course he would help but I don't think he fits what we need. I wouldn't be disappointed but would be very leery of the move.

There has been one trade. STL's AHL goalie to the Sens. Honestly never even heard of the guy but apparently he's looked at around the league as having decent starting potential.

He's bigger than our goalies ... quick ... looked pretty good every time I've seen him play for the Rivermen. If he can't be in our system, I'm glad he's heading east.

Would you guys trade for Semin as a rental? if the asking price was a 1st rounder, or a guy like Blum or the rights to Radulov maybe?

Radulov is off the table, just get that out of the way.

Semin for a 1st.. wouldn't be my first (or 2nd or 3rd) choice, but I would consider it. He is the opposite of what a Trotz player should be, but his talent is undeniable. Kostitsyn could use a sniper to play with.

It feels more and more like just some tweaking is in our future with Gill being our biggest trade.
