Unfortunately, that's probably the only move we'll make. As much as I've stuck up for Volchenkov and think he is still a very serviceable defenseman, his time has come. Ideally I'd like for Volch + Harrold to be traded, preferably for a 1st in this years draft but that probably won't happen and isn't reasonable.

i honestly dont know, because i dont care about the hawks even a little. im just saying, this is the most frustrated and angry and frankly depressed i've (and im sure others) ever been over this ****show of a season, so now might not be the best time to get sympathy for the blackhawks. (the score was 7-1, right?)

I point my finger at everyone that's saying to trade him.

What's the end goal of trading him? We're going to end up in a worse position then we are now unless we land a 1st liner or a 1st pairing guy from it, and that's just not happening...

How about this. The Hawks fan can stay if he convinces his management to trade Kane and Oduya for Volchenkov, Tallinder, and Clarkson.

If Volchenkov can land us a 1st, I will have a heart attack, land in the hospital so the crew can bring me back to life... just so I can open up HF from my hospital bed and have a 2nd heart attack.

Trading Clarkson may not help the team right now, or the future. But it will probably do a great deal of help for my sanity. Watching his goofy face, and his over-exuberant flails is fun and all when the team is winning. When they are struggling though it pisses me off to an unbelievable extent and not having to sit through a game and watch his play would be great

And I'm half in that but partly serious... unfortunately.

Volch + Harrold hopefully. Can't forget about that offensive dynamo on the back-end!!

There is an arms race brewing in the East. I'm thinking that Slats will be forced into the game. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rangers go hard after Vanek and maybe even taking the Myers contract.

The population of Pominville is about to take a hit.

He's submitted a list of 8 teams.

Yet, you constantly reply to my post...

Back on topic, the end goal is acquire assets that will help us in the long run. We aren't a contending team, our best players are one or two years away from retirement and our prospect pool is paper thin.

We can't afford to lose another player via free agency for nothing and we can't afford to overpay a player that is perfectly suited to play on our 3rd line or as a complementary forward on our top #6 for a short period of time.

We've seen first hand what that does to our team in terms of budget when overpaying on guys like Madden, Rolston, Pandolfo, Volchenkov, Salvador, etc... They turn into a "ball in chain" when trying to make a move cause they cause us more harm then anything by eating cap space/roster spots that can be utilised for better players.

Anyways, I don't see Lou moving him but if we do lose him for free, we'll be caught with our pants down yet another time and have nothing to show for it, yet again. Thank god Tedenby is just around the corner in Albany.

Pominville would be great. Would slot into the #1 or #2 RW and maybe could convince DB to move Kovy back to LW.

It's hard to think the Devils are going to be on anyone's list... but man it would be awesome to get him. I'm willing to part with any picks they want as well as Severson, Urbom, Gelinas, Josefson, and so on.

Sadly, currently I'm more entertained by his goofy commercials for that hockey store than I am by his play on the ice.

since the other thread was closed, I just wanted to say spot on here. but if the people/person youre trying to convince doesn’t even see the value in what a captain brings off the ice, (a few weeks back) trying to show them what clarkson brings is a lost cause.

im very optimistic and hopeful that he will sign a reasonable contract over the summer.

Asking price will be too high for Pominville considering our asset pool

If we get him, immediately try your luck at powerball next

I've always been a member of the population of Pominville love that guy. Would love him on the team, but not for too much.
