There are ways to clear cap space.

To be clear- I don't blame Chia for the Iginla deal...he got screwed.
Is Vanek now or has he ever been available? The thought of the cost to obtain him is terrifying.

Nash is the only guy on this list I can get on board with (and was on board with) but I'm pretty sure 90% of folks were against getting him because of the likely cost (Krejci +).

It's nice to say "in hindsight Chia should have done this", but that's not really looking at things rationally.

Does anyone think Gaborik might be available? He and Chara are pretty good friends right?

Tough to fault Chiarelli here, he was about to pull the trigger on my dream trade. Actually, he did pull the trigger.

Apparently he is available. I agree the cost would be high but at least make the call (maybe he did...I don't know.) He gives us something we don't have instead of the redundant pieces we have in spades. I also think that Gaborik could be obtained for a reasonable deal at this point. Just not happy that all eggs appeared to be put in the Iginla basket and he's not really a long term solution anyway.

Could have been a blessing that we didn't get him.

That's is what I heard (being available for the right deal.) Might complicate things that he is a Ranger and they will be less likely to deal with us...but I would try.

He did pull the trigger and then this happened but with a Penguin on the flag

Patty, I know this is a tough day, but your avatar is cracking me up. Then I think of something good happening to the Penguins, and I look like your avatar.

As much as he's struggling, I'd take Gabby on this team in a heartbeat.

This is.. what? 10-15min out of his day? To address a pretty controversial night last night/early this morning?

I don't see the problem. At all.

You had wanted Iginla. My disappointment would go away if we got St. Louis or Streit or preferably St. Louis and Streit. But I felt bad for you man. It's like when the idea of Yandle or Carlson comes up for me...times a billion.

Who is, Vanek? Is this from legit sources or just people?

I'd be surprised if either could be obtainable at reasonable offers as we'd be trading with divisional rivals which I think is the rational train of thought here.

Both also cause serious cap headaches next season and would result in seeing some serious money getting moved. Would you lose Krejci for a year of Gaborik (potentially under performing Gaborik that we see this year). I wouldn't and I'm no Krejci fan boy.

Vanek is another story, but again, I haven't heard anywhere he actually is available and even if he were I would think Boston would be at a severe disadvantage trying to get him.
