Connelly is a very good prospect. As are a few of our own. Some of which we (and our scouting staff) rank ahead of Connelly.

IMO we are looking to move Yandle or Rundblad. We unfortunately can't take on much in terms of salary so that limits our enthusiasm for players like Purcell or Malone if we were going to move the more likely asset in Yandle (and even then I would want more to be honest). Really until we know if the organization is moving and/or potential impact to our budget I'm not sure we can really do anything for a couple more days.

I definitely understand what you're saying and the cap constraints your organization works under severely limits the returns or possibilities that may be there for trade. On paper, our teams look like good trading partners, but clearly it doesn't translate as well in actual proposals from a fan's standpoint.

I lied. One more on the Mike Smith deal from Maloney: "Both sides were not overly happy with the deal so it’s probably fair."
Ugh, that irks me. Maloney's going to get his work cut out for him playing musical chairs just to accommodate that contract. Not saying that he can't make it work, but things could've been so much more straightforward...

Unless, you know, your whole point is made irrelevant in 48 hours. Just saying. No chairs need to be moved if the budget goes to $60m. Quite the opposite.

In response to IPreferPi from the previous thread, I'm sure there's something that can be worked out in a deal between Connolly for Stone plus a pick. We'd likely push for a 2nd, but I could see us settling for a 3rd.

One of the nice things about the roster is that we should be set up to take full advantage of the 'trading' deadline.

We've got Michalek, Klesla and DeMo who could be targeted to be moved and at the deadline, teams are always willing to trade for that last piece to help them, and the Coyotes could be right there to give them that piece and then fill in that piece with Rundblad and Gormley.

Michalek probably fetches a 1st at the deadline and Klesla or DeMo would return a 2nd at worst.

Not sure if it's been posted yet, but McLellan tweeted this:

"Maloney said they had a few trades in the works today but nothing materialized. Could still happen this week."

Am not sure how our fans would feel about trading him, especially after we just bought out Vinny but personally, I'd trade him for Stone straight up.

However, from management's perspective it could be more of an issue since we're fairly light at center after Stamkos and TJ.

You might get a better return at the deadline, but if Gormley and Rundblad are ready to roll by October, I want both of them in the lineup opening night. Gormley being the #7 or in Portland waiting for a trade has no appeal whatsoever.

Something has to give. There are too many D that need NHL minutes on the roster right now. The psyche of this team is also fragile. Sending them on their way with a patchwork roster that is worse than last year, somehow, is a recipe for disaster. But then so would potentially trading away one of your big leaders like Doan or Yandle.

That's the nice thing, whenever Gormley and/or Rundblad are ready, they can play...doesn't mean that Klesla, Michalek or DeMo are worth any less.

...and let's face it, with the way last year went, we're probably likely to have at least 1 injury on the back end.

Ideally, I'd like to trade Rundblad and Klesla.

Yandle - Morris
OEL - Michalek
Stone - Gormley
Schlemko

Boom. Done.

The Habs were in on yesterday's discussions for Alex Edler.

So they're looking for an offensive D. Would you guys do Yandle for Plekanec?

Plekanec has three years on his contract, each at $5 mil. He's 30 and another Czech for our team. In the last four seasons, he's scored 33 points (47 games), 52 points, 57 points, and 70 points.

Personally, no, though he'd be a great Tippett player. Yandle's transitional game is worth more to the offense than Plek would be, imo. Would I consider a deal with Plekanec and another large piece, yes, but there is no way the Habs would do that.

Plek is an excellent 2C. But I wouldn't trade Yandle for him. Would rather try to somehow package Vermette + Klesla/Morris for him.

Missed in the hubbub of the draft:

Also, all RFAs in organization will be offered qualifying offers before tomorrow's deadline except Scott Arnold.

Sounds like Toronto won't re-sign Clarke MacArthur. Could be an option for us.

I also really like Michael Ryder as a free agent.

Ack, I'm going to hold off from further attempts at Moneypucking as I simply don't know which of our high-salary pieces are being shopped, or our budget. Also don't know which RFAs will be qualified to one-way deals, since apparently almost all of them are going to be qualified.

Reports here in Toronto that Tyler Bozak is looking for 8 years at 5 mil per. Good luck to him!

No. I wouldn't even consider Plekanec for Yandle.

Poor Keith Ballard, put on waivers by Vancouver today. Obviously just interested in clearing cap space for him.

Just a rumor but I've heard Hendricks has asked for around 2.5 million from Washington (which is why he'll be a free agent even though Washington loved him).

Rumor found in Caps fans comments: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...-agent-market/

I think it's safe to say that re-signing Chipchura is a good bet to be our 4th line center.

Crazy if true. At least the Gaustad contract can be rationalizible because he's an elite defensive forward. Hendricks is a very good 4th line center, but he's not elite in anything and certainly doesn't produce offensively to be worth above $1M.
