Then we can keep dreaming. A 1st for Ryan ****ing Whitney?

Caron would be a good get, and the pick will likely be a 5-6th. That is a good return for a D-man whos mobility is shot and has questionable decision making.

Caron can be a nice 3rd liner for us. A young NHLer in return for Whitney is far more than i expected.

The ONLY reason is if he is asking for too much money, if that's the case hopefully you can trade him for a possible replacement.

For the prices marginal impending UFA's are going for there's no point with our <20% playoff hopes to be throwing away 2nd round picks on the Clowe's of the world.

I'd rather wait till the off-season to sign him.

Agreed, that way you could be more sure of his health

Everything I have heard about Caron is that he is a bust and BOS fans would give him away. He is big but what skills does he have, how is his skating, does he hit a lot, how is his passing? I don't want to take a player just because he is big look at JFJ.

So...we're buyers now

Find a way to get Torres for that 4th line so Vancouver can't grab him.

We need some tough guys

Hi everyone, my first thread in ages and i am sorry if i should have put this in another thread.

I just want to say that this is an amazing start to the game tonight vs the canucks, but i am seeing something pretty disturbing, how easily the boys are getting beaten but the canucks and how Hall might be hurt now cuz of Bieska.

we need to get some big nasty mean fighters at the deadline, and i am not talking some middle weight fighter i am talking someone who can just beat the snot outta people and put the fear of god in the other team. If we lose Hall now cuz of some bum slashing him cuz his team is playing like crap that BRUTAL!!!!.

I would like to see Torres on this team but who do we take out; what would Torres be worth any way.

We've had them before. They're useless. Guys like Brown are the way to go

If Raffi Torres is available at the deadline I wouldn't mind the Oilers taking out a flyer on him.

Guys like Brown in a 6'4 frame is the way to go.


They're just impossible to find.

I agree with the nuge, we need tough guys that can play. Someone to replace Petrell but that could move up and down the line up. Few guys like that around though.

Even Brown is an issue because he can't score, although I'll give him props for the energy he has brought. You want guys that can hit and score goals.

I must be in the minority but I like Petrell in a 4th line PK role.

He hits 5 on 5 and creates the odd chance.

Edit: and Elliotte Friedman said that Miller stated that he did NOT give a list of teams he won't be traded to

Adding Clowe!

Just as the title says. Is there any possibility we could add Ryane Clowe this summer as a UFA?

And what would it cost?

He would be a great addition to our top six group of forwards!

Thoughts?

Petrell has played well tonight but I still hope for Torres.

I was going to mention maybe Derek Morris too, but then I was like....better not.

Lennart Petrell hits, but Torres hits and scores, so he'd be an improvement. Maybe you trade Petrell back to Phoenix.

I agree with the below poster, ship Belanger out for free pizza and a puck.

Also, Belanger for anything. Literally anything. Like, free pizza for a week from Panago or something.

What about Torres on the 3rd line and trade Jones away.
