Yet for some reason you feel if you do ask you will have some sway with management?

O'Reilly wants $5M a year, and has a career high of 55 points. I like him as a player, but I'm not sure how much more offensive upside there is. Giving up Johansson (who was similarly terrible the first few games last season) and a 2nd to pay O'Reilly $5M doesn't seem the most prudent course of action.

I'd probably rather go after Ryder or Sullivan for a quick offensive fix this year, then address any needs that become apparent this season in the offseason.

True. He does have 55 points but it's only his fourth season though, he's 21 still. I'd rather have a wing though.

I'm not that familiar with Anaheim but they are pushing really hard to re-sign both Perry and Getzlaf. Any word if they are up to trading Ryan for more overall pieces? I'm totally down giving up pieces for him as long as it's not our 1st.

He pretty much fits exactly what we need right now plus he actually gets those greasy goals. I've always liked him as a player but after looking at some highlight videos, this dude could help us alot if we could get him.

This is hfboards bro. If a player hasn't won the hart by age 22 they have hit their ceiling according to most posters.

You don't get a read on a guy watching highlight videos it's how he does when **** isn't working that counts not when things went right I can look like a 30 goal scorer with a highlight package

He's a big body that crashes the net. He's a wing. He has shown he can produce.

He HAS to be better than Semin's work ethic lol. I've been watching him for a bit now when I can but I don't just look at highlight packages.

And half of those "highlights" were greasy goals and not dangles.

Yet Brooks Laich at 4.5 million is AOK.

O'Reilly projects as a Bergeron, Pavelski, Zajac, Kesler, JStaal type center and looks like he's getting there in a hurry. If you can get someone like that on your team for Marcus ****ing Johansson you do it and lock them up as long as you can. They add a playoff dimension that can't really be replaced. Certainly by no one we have on this roster or likely to get any other way.

What is the point of getting Ryder or Sullivan, exactly? You're giving up futures to possibly get us into the playoffs this year so we can get smoked. They're on teams that are looking to get t the playoffs so their values will be artificially inflated. This is Darryl Sutter level hockey decisions. Bite the bullet, tank the season, then get guys like O'Reilly, perhaps even Ryder and retool the team so it can play the right way by next fall.

Johansson + 2nd for O'Reilly would put us so much closer to being a legitimate playoff contender it's not even funny. But McPhee hoards his nuts so he won't do it and we'll continue being left with Ovechkin, Backstrom and a mishmash of crap.

EDIT: crap I forgot he's 21 and got his 55 point season with an 18 year old and a revolving door of wingers, all of them grinders. Yeah no offensive upside there. No way in hell.

Crosby had his stick broken and it was the weirdest thing I have ever seen, it looked like a clean cut.

And now a dive by Malkin.

Lecavalier starts a fight with Luke Schenn, Luke Schenn worked him good with several lefts.

I actually thought about Arnott yesterday when MW6 suggested that our team may benefit from a RH offensive minded center.

He's not on the hot seat quite yet. They realize how lucky they were that he was out there when they fired Stevens. If things continue to go poorly, that could change in an instant.

I'd fire Oates in a heartbeat if I thought we could land Laviolette.

FFS Isles and Jets go to OT.

It would of been best if one or the other won in regulation. Now hopefully whoever wins, wins in shootout.
