Synopsis: The panthers need a first line center and can absorb stasny's cap hit. With money cleared up the avs can sign a puck moving PP specialist defensemen, acquire a second/third line center who is excellent on the PK, and a first round draft pick.
we have cap room a lot......
We have centers a lot.......
we have young pp defensmen a lot ......
we have that center, actualy two of them....
so now get back to us about a real proposal that we can think about.
I don't want Panthers to trade for Stastny and especially not a trade involving Weiss. Weiss' value is a lot more than just the number of points he puts up and I think he might even have more points that Stastny this season at a smaller cap hit too.
Can't believe he traded Quincey to get a 3rd liner like Downie. Why not take the 30th pick from Detroit instead? Stupid Sherman.
He traded a future all-star for Varlamov. That draft pick really is something special.
He traded the next Iginla (Stewart) for Erik Johnson. EJ might have as many points as Stewart while playing great defense but man that was an awful trade.
Wolski for Mueller, Hannan for Fleischmann, Bournival for O'Byrne, a 4th round pick for Winnik, etc
Youngest and cheapest team in the league but only two points out of a playoff spot. Someone fire this man!
First off, I said "always"... as in sarcasm - your reading comprehension skills are terrible.
And you really think that trade with the Blues was all about Stewart and EJ? Typical avs fan that doesn't even know the half of it.
You remember the other guy in the deal who is having a MUCH better year than EJ? Also a defeseman? You probably don't. But his name is Shattenkirk and he alone tips the scales. Shatty is better than EJ and Stewart is better than McClement. Easy.
Tell me, is EJ playing any better than he was when he was on the Blues? How about as good as any of the other first overall picks within 5 years?
Tell me which one of these guys does not belong in this list:
It's pretty laughable huh?
Also, if I was rebuilding my team I would most definitely trade my next first and second rounders for an un-proven / inconsistent goalie when there were way better options.
Stop offering Weiss already ffs.. He has a NTC and if asked to waive it do you think he'd goto a team in worse condition than Panthers?
In the end if he's traded Statsny will most likely fetch nothing near what Avs fans want. They never do
Panthers finally put a decent season together and you are ripping into the Avs who only have 2 less points and are right in the thick of making the playoffs with the youngest team and lowest cap in the league.
Same insecure stuff for the hundredth time. You need a new act.
seems like a troll attempt.. as far as I could tell Avs are happy with Erik Johnson and the unsung here Jay Mac. Sure Shattenkirk has done great in St. Louis, but the whole team has really.. doesn't mean Shattenkirk is the better player. Also those 1st and 2nd round picks are tearing it up on the Caps this season.
Florida is a salary floor team because the franchise loses money and lacks a rich owner. The Cats cannot afford to take on Statsny contract unless Jovo goes the other way, which obviously ain't happening.
Statsny is on pace for about 50-60 points, which suggests that he is somewhat overpaid but not way overpaid especially given his youth and upside.
