John-Michael Liles

Well considering older PMD's like Gonchar and Streit just got big money I figure there should be some interest for JM Liles.

He is still a good player, not like he once was but never the less he's serviceable. Signed for 3 more years with a 3.8 cap hit.

We have no room for him on our D due to his style and side he plays so who wants him?

He'd go for cheap probably a pick or a lesser prospect.

What about Colorado? I know you guys are about to draft Jones but your going to need more than him to fix up the back end. Liles played his whole career there, well liked and respected in the organization, brings some mobility. Any interest?

Any other team looking for an experienced PMD for a cheap price?

Colorado offers a 3rd for Liles


Or Greg Zanon. You should take Greg Zanon. He's a great shot blocker

The 3rd alone is fine.

Colorado wouldn't trade a pick for Liles. Maybe O'Brien or Zanon, but I doubt it with Liles contact.

Zanon's beard is worth more than Zanon himself. Zanon could sell it to hairdresser or something.

But ROB had a goal his first game with the Leafs!

How did ROB play with the Leafs after the initial week? He was solid for the Avs last year, this year he was a pylon.

Yep. Contract seems pretty bad to me. Liles has been on decline ever since he was traded. Avalanche traded him at the right time, but they only got back 2nd round pick, which was bit disappointing for me, because I always liked Liles. Anyway, I don't think Avalanche wants to add his contract. It would be basically salary-dump for Toronto.

The 3rd overall? Did the Avs trade down I thought they had the first overall?

I liked Liles when he was here, but he would be redundant now with both Barrie + Elliot. The Avs traded him one season too early IMO, and it did hurt that season. Now? no thanks.

liles is actually still capable of putting up points...you just don't put up points playing with guys like kostka.

Liles is still a good PP QB and their will be a market for him.

Wideman 5.25, Gonchar 5, Streit 5.25, Wiz 5.5 all signed as UFAs the last 2 off-seasons.

Meanwhile Liles make quite a bit less at 3.875 and 3 years isn't that long of a term.

He had a really good game in the Boston series...was invisible except for when he was hitting everything which was really nice. Again though, it was one game

And 3 of those guys doubled Liles in points this year. The other had more points in less games than Liles. Toronto would get a 3 rd rounder for him.

Liles is probably worth a late 2nd rounder...he'd put up points on a good team where he could play 2nd pairing, and maybe top PP time, needs some talent up front to work with of course.

I feel like he would be a good fit in PHX if they trade off Yandle to address their forward needs.

The Islanders may be interested in him to replace Streit. His contract is not unreasonable given what Gonchar and Streit signed for. My guess is Leafs could get a third or fourth round pick.

Would Calgary need a D like Liles?

Liles+Blacker+4th for their first round pick? (29-30)

I don't even think Feaster is capable of a trade this bad. And that's saying something.
