No, he's right. Ottawa does it to an unparalleled degree on this forum.

Case in point: Look at the newest Ottawa proposal on the trade board. They want RNH for Zibby, and adding Lehner would be too much.

The trade board is complete crap to the point, I'm wondering why it's still there(other than rumors) what purpose does it serve? The best part is when people get upset over bad proposals. Just look at the garbage proposals by the leafs fans.

Avs fans have rejected an ROR +Duchene for Malkin proposal. Hell some wouldn't trade Yandle for Barrie/Elliott.

I can't take one more Duchene, MacKinnon, Landy trade proposal. I can't believe the other fanbases are that dumb at this point, they must be just trolling.

We kinda deserve to be trolled on the Trades board...at least when it comes to Leaf fans. Some of our folks have trolled the Leafs fans pretty badly on that forum.

I think ROR + Duchene fof Malkin is interesting proposal. I think I would decline because having depth is huge asset. Its good proposal.

I don't have a problem with star for star proposals, even the Subban-MacKinnon one was a halfway decent discussion. It's all the other proposals from circling vultures that bother me.

You mean the "O'Reilly had a contract dispute and has a QO so we will give you a 3rd round pick and 28 year old prospect" threads.

Or the always fun "you need a defenseman bad (LOL, Look how horrible they are), so we will trade you our 3rd pairing D guy who plays 5 minutes a game for Duchene because you have too many centers OMG" threads.

I like the Landeskog + 2nd for Marc Staal + 3rd one.

Proposed by an (alleged) Avalanche fan....

What was that one from a Devils fan? MacKinnon for Henrique and Larsson?

I don't like that Marc Staal is taking too many injuries. Mostly head injureis along with that eye injury.

The problem is teams don't make trades period around this time of year. You see trades before the season starts, and at the deadline. You almost never see trades apart from that unless it's for a specific reason. It's too hard to find the right fit cap wise on a dollar for dollar trade, and teams wait until later in the season when players are cheaper.

Plus even if money or cap isn't an issue like for the Avalanche and say the Panthers or some other team, you're hard pressed to get the selling team to make a move early because they want to wait for the teams with cap problems to see if they'll get more value.

It's not an issue of teams never trading top four defenseman. You see it every year.

Even if Staal didn't have a concussion history I'd be wary of that deal.

Not to mention it just seems like all the Staals are joining forces in Carolina. NYR will probably trade him there for cheap, or he'll just sign there as a UFA after next season.

And it appears trying to build around Jordan and Eric hasn't worked out so well for Carolina. But yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Marc ended up there too.

I can't help but wonder if the Flyers will trade for Jamie McGinn since they already have Tye and could possibly draft Brock? I mean, it's clear they like brother combos, even if they end up sucking.

Brock McGinn was drafted by the Hurricanes.

Shoot, I thought I read an article that said he was eligible this year. Oops.

Well, Carolina likes uniting families as well.

I was gonna jokingly propose a McGinn for a much better player in Carolina's lineup, but outside of the Staal's there's not really anyone I'd want. Skinner is just a mess health wise, and carries a big contract. Maybe we could bring in Lindholm and just run with an all center lineup.

If the Avs could get their hands on Justin Faulk somehow, I'd be very, very happy.

Skinner is still really young, and you're forgetting about Faulk.

Although I don't like the high cap hit for a super streaky player, on paper, a ROR-Dutch-Semin line would not make me sad.

Yea I wanted the Avs to trade for him before the season. He's not a home run trade 1 for 1 with McGinn though, that's what I was getting at.

Haven't watched Faulk closely enough to know if he'll be a legit all around top 2 defenseman, or just an offensive one.

He's already a very legit 1st pair d-man to me.
