I'm not a big Boyle fan by any stretch, but Rangers fans continually undervalue him on the trade market. I'd be willing to bet that he's viewed generally as a 3rd liner around the league. And Clowe is viewed as a barely 2nd liner, if that. So I don't really think Boyle and a 3rd is so far off in value.

Key here, too, is that both players might stand to benefit from a change in scenery. It's rare that such a thing helps, but it does happen.

What I don't want to see is a trade for Clowe and a re-sign before he really plays for the team. He needs to prove that he would be worth an extension before getting one. MacKenzie mentioned that is a concern to me.

With the Trade Deadline only a few days away, shouldn't this become the Official Trade Deadline Discussion thread?

Richards? Skates on his leather, have all of his career.

Stepan? Pretty weak skater.

Zucc? Pretty avg skater.

Boyle? Navigates like a battleship.

Kreider? Pretty immobile and accelerates poorly unless he gets to skate in straight lines. Avg skater overall.

Pyatt? Slow.

Powe? Pretty immobile. Decent intensity.

Asham? Worn out.

Most teams skates alot better than our guys. We have picked guys for their board work for a long time now...

I mean, I truly believe that like all other 14 teams in the East would LOVE to have a Korpikoski for around 2m per. In low 2nd line/high 3rd line roll. Teams like Ottawa, WPG, Montreal, Boston, NJ, Pittsburg, Islanders and co would love to get a player like that. They draft them, sign them, trades for them. Torts wouldn't touch him with a stick because Torta has no clue how to get up ice unless he can yell at his players to pass (read: shoot) the puck up along the boards and hope for his wingers to win battles there like the game was played in 03'. Hence we get very little speed because board monster are usually not that fast.

As always, it's a big "depends...". What are we giving back? Are we signing him to an extension as part of the deal? If so, for how much - and how much room was freed up in the deal?

Do I want to trade our 2020 7th for Clowe as a rental? Abso-freakin'-lutely.

Do I want to trade Fast, Lindberg and our 2014 1st for a Clowe who's signed to a 3-year $12MM extension? Um, I hope nobody does.

As we move between those two extremes, my opinion shifts from "Hell, yes!" to "Oh my God, Slats, what have you done?"

Among teams that I believe have at least talked to SJ are Flyers, Wild, Canucks, Habs, Rangers, Bruins... and believe there are more...

Lots of suitors (not surprising).

SJ could easily get their asking price. I'm a fan of Clowe but not at SJs asking price.

I'm a fan of what Clowe used to be, but he's not that guy anymore.

Which is not surprising, considering the Rangers are after him.

I imagine Slats quotes the Six Million Dollar Man quite a bit.

"We can fix him. We have the technology... and money. We have money too."

1. If Philly trades Couturier for Clowe they are morons.
2. Do not want to face Clowe 5/6x a year and potentially in Divisional playoffs.
3. If UFA Clowe gets Couturier it is time to dump Gabs.

If they give up Couturier the Rangers better be in there offering Gaborik for Couturier +. Set up the future center ice position for the foreseeable future.

Think that trade would go down within the division? I doubt it.

McKenzie says the Rangers are in the mix for Clowe. If the asking price is truly Couturier though, let's get the **** out of that one and bail.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: Have to figure a team like NYR more interested in Clowe as a rental. MTL may be hesitant to pay high rental rates.
