Because this season is over. Fix the defense in the offseason, not now. Prices are simply too high to do anything now.

I still bet we trade ROB and Kobasew.

Wow, my head is reeling from all the crazy activity today!

It's like freaking Wall Street at the opening bell on the first day of the month out there!

GMs are going nuts! Nuts, I tells ya!

I'm trying to figure out the logistics, but I will meet you down there.

If they don't at least move some of this dead weight I will be furious.

Offseason move, the market isn't great now for sellers

Not even fix it, just get rid of some of the junk.

Correct.

But we can still clean out the garbage for late picks.

Wasn't Datsyuk or someone like that a 6th round pick?

Every now and then those 5-7 round picks turn up a gem.

Trade the trash for whatever. It's not like trading ROB and bringing up Pock will kill the tank.

I guess we can still trade in the OS...

I just think you might be able to get a desperate team to give up a bit for Staz right now.

Maybe Im wrong. Oh well...heres to another month of horrid defense lol

It should be good for sellers. ~ 25 teams think they have "a chance" to make the playoffs. That leaves a lot more buyers than sellers.

Blockbuster deals aside, I'd rather we stay pat outside of getting 2nd or 3rd rounders. The odds of getting a decent roster player past the 3rd round are ridiculous, thats why I'd prefer moves like last night for gaunce, at least a guy like vincour has proven he can get some points in the league already and its a low cost high reward type deal.

I don't get this. Only about four sellers. Asking prices are too high for most teams. How is Colorado not set up perfectly to get a 2nd or 3rd for a guy like O'Byrne, or Kobasew?

This is going to be so annoying if they don't get any value for these guys they clearly won't keep.

I'm more concerned with the fact that we already have too many one way defensive contracts. We need to get rid of some so that the team won't feel obligated to keep playing the trash.

If Sherman was offered a 2nd round pick for O'Byrne or Kobasew, they would be traded already.

So, try ROB and a 3rd for a 2nd. Get something for him.

Same with Kobasew. Koba and a 4th for a 2nd.

If the contracts are expiring, we could pay their damn salary for the rest of this season.

Get creative.

Ok, let me re-phrase that, how are they not set up perfectly to get a 7th. They need to get something, and if everyone else is asking for the moon, they need to be taking whatever they can get for these guys.

Because O'byrne is probably a 2nd option for most teams looking for defensive D if a deal for him happens it is likely to be right before the deadline.

"Good things come to those who wait. But not to those who wait too late."

Seems to apply to Sherman.

C'mon Sherman, prove me wrong.

Oilers gave a 4th round pick for Jerred Smithson. Can't imagine we couldn't get the same for Kobasew and/or O'Byrne.
I'd be fine with a 6th round pick as well.
Get rid of them and call up some prospects.

This. I think teams are waiting on Morris right now.

The Jokinen return doesn't bode well for Jones being dealt.

Carolina retains salary and the conditions of the pick are "If Jokinen plays 25 per cent of PIT 2013 playoff games AND PIT goes to Cup final, CAR gets 7th round pick from PIT."
