I don't mind this, but the Pens would have to add for that 1st trade. I think Regehr for a 3rd is fine, Orpik + 2nd for Stewart + Cole.

I'd do both those deals. I don't think St. Louis would do the first, and I think Buffalo would rather have a further along prospect in the second.

All sarcasm/joking aside, I do think a guy like Paul Martin can be a more effective defenseman than a guy like Orpik well into his late 30s. I could actually see Martin still playing in a team's top six when he's 38, but I couldn't see Orpik even being in the league at that age.

Flames offer sheeting ROR probably might mean Iginla doesn't get traded... =/

Right but

a) that's true of every big name player
b) talks just started this week according to their GM and item "a" is a lot different than saying "Perry won't sign; this is going to be a crazy deadline", which is what the rumor was (AFAICT). The timing of it doesn't pass the smell test.

Didn't think the Flames would be the ones to offer sheet him.

I would let him go in a second if i were Colorado. Thet 1st rounder should be able to fetch them some serious talent in this draft since Calgary will probably yield a top-10 pick

edit: colorado, not Ottawa ofc...

fair enough, they'd need at least one more fairly significant piece going their way. the difference between Orpik and Regehr as i see it is that Orpik is far more likely to re-sign and will fill their leadership void - the team's captaincy has been a turnstile over the years. he grew up there and we've always noted that he was 'captain-material' whatever the hell that means.

This is a smart move, they lack center depth.

Calgary has a problem every year in convincing themselves that they should be sellers.

While I agree Calgary needs to sell and that they likely won't now, acquiring ROR is smart regardless of what they do, imo.

I agree but it'd be dump to keep Iginla. Should be selling and stockpiling picks.

Likely top ten pick for the Avs. Calgary gets their #1C. Good for both sides IMO.

mmmm... not sure ROR will ever be a #1C. He's a good player and all but he's pretty much a 2C IMO. On most teams anyway. The real thing here is Calgary is going to have a great pick in a great draft. This seems a little short sighted IMO. ROR can still end up playing 2C if they get more C talent so not a loss but what could they get with that Top 10 pick in this draft? Likely someone who will be NHL ready very soon, and very talented. Plus at that salary level they're giving up a 2nd too, aren't they?

You'd think they would have offered him longer than 2 years then. In the short term, this could be good for Calgary. In the long term, they could either lose him soon to free agency, or have to re-sign him at a ridiculous price because of his second year salary being the basis for the qualifying offer.

Honestly, that club has been delusional for the last handful of seasons. If any club could do with a rebuild, it's them. Yet every year they actually add pieces in some weak attempt to prove they're going for it.

I was wrong earlier, it's 1st and 3rd round picks not 1st and 2nd, but either way Colorado would be nuts to match that, given the terms. Seems at the end of 2 years he's still a RFA?? Let Calgary saddle itself with that problem.

F that.
