I don't personally think Colorado would make that trade. (O'Reilly + Elliott for Hanzal + Gormley) Yeah we have a better 'chance' of Gormley turning into a #1/#2 D but he is no where near close to being ready for that. Too big of a question mark IMO... At least in a trade involving O'Reilly.
Hanzal's better than Radar for now and would be really awesome for this team if we really are going down the 90s Stars team strategy, deep set of really hard to play against forwards, a big defense and great goaltending. If I were more sold on Gormley I would actually like that trade but I just don't think Gormley's ready to partner EJ any time soon, and if we move EJ I'd want someone like Kulikov, Yandle or Vlasic who could play with EJ from day one.

O'reilly can't go anywhere, otherwise he would become the new avs killer.

Which is why I like a potential Kulikov deal, kills two birds. It would acquire the potential top pairing partner for EJ, and it gets O'Reilly out of the West. If the Avs do end up trade ROR, I hope they ship him out east.

EJ is going to Lokomotiv in KHL? We're screwed.

Plus if you could snag Matthias in the deal, you could still have a solid 3rd line. Probably would have to give up a pick/defensemen/prospect to get it done, but would be worth it in the end.

Florida would have an entire line of avs killers anytime we would play against them (not very often of course).

I really hope that is the deal that gets done. I'd imagine in a perfect world they'd want to pull the trigger before wednesday to get the players at least a practice or two before puck drop. My guess is if theres an imminent deal we will have an answer Tuesday night or wed afternoon. If not its gonna drag on through the season like Turris.

All this fear in ROR not coming back made me wonder what's happening with hishon? Wasn't he cleared to practice a few weeks ago? Does anybody have any info on how he's doing?

We have an older more established version of Hickey on the team in Hunwick.

Havent seen any.

But I would say in a case like him no news is probably good news right now. If we haven't heard anything he's probably still skating and working back into game shape, meaning no big set backs.


In fact, I think I remember seeing Hishon tweeting at Malone a few days ago about something that happen maybe at practice or working out together. So it would appear as though he might even be with the team practicing now. Cant confirm that but it looks possible.

So if teams and can do a compliance buy-out by Saturday (as it appears the NHL and NHLPA have included a stay at home bubble wrap clause),I wouldn't mind signing Gomez as a 3C at 1-2 mill.

Gomez.. Idk. But I wouldn't mind given Wade Redden a chance the rest of the season. I'm not sure he is totally finished. He might bounce back decently anyway.

Yeah honestly I'd be down, he'll be motivated to prove himself. Cheap... Veteran... and probably better than Mitchell in that role honestly.

Agreed. I think Redden could still be a decent #4/5 on a lot of teams, and a #3 for us. Would give him a 1 year 2-2.5M deal too see what he has left, then resign him if he impresses.

Gomez wouldn't be terrible either IMO. Change of scenery could do him well as well. But I wouldn't go any higher then say 1.5M for him.

I'd look at Gomez if we knew that ROR wouldn't be back this season.

I would love to bring in Lombardi if he came really cheap and if ROR stays in Russia this season.

If we want a talented guy on the roster with a history of concussions we should just put Hishon on the roster. At least Hishon would have more upside and less risk at this point.

I don't even know if Hishon is ready to play games yet and there is a lot more risk with Hishon than Lombardi.

Even if ROR came back, we could just trade Gomez... Especially if he showed some life.
