Watch a trade between the two go down next week and HF explodes.

E1-E4 mean nothing.

E5 means someone else already confirmed it.

So is this in addition to or instead of the 4 for 2 trade between the Habs and the Avs we were promised was going down within a couple of months ?

I still maintain that anyone that actually pays for a subscription to that site needs to wear a helmet 24/7.

Chalk this up as another win for Eklund. The Kings made a trade today so it counts.

HAHA Much more.
Bourque for Clifford is a lateral at best. Basically junk for junk.
Why would we add much more just to get your garbage.

What about people (like me) that never follow the link and come into these threads for a hearty laugh?

Every thread at least half the people are tearing him down and calling him a hack or a bull@#$^er.

I wouldn't imagine those people are following the link either.

Clifford makes 2 mil less so there is the cap relieve for a similar player if they are similar as you say

My offer may have been off, that's why you negotiate.



They didn't free up anything other than a spot under the 50 contract limit. Jones is the likely new backup (barring another trade) and he makes the same as Scrivens did.
Quick is my favorite goalie (as a goalie myself), I see plenty of Kings games, thanks. I was mocking your proposal with something equally absurd. You wouldn't get Pacioretty alone for that package.. and there's no negotiation, that is a proposal that would make a GM hang up the phone and block your number.

Edmonton and Montreal are right next to each other so it's an understandable mistake. Plus who the hell can tell blue and orange from red and blue? What am I, an interior decorator?

Well i was trying to be nice.Clifford best season he put up 7 goals and 14 pts.Bourque has multipul 20+ goal seasons.As bad as Bourque has been this season he's easily better than Clifford.One poster here was claiming that we would have to add a lot more to Bourque to get Clifford which is an absolute joke..

As I explained in my OP I am not an Eklund follower nor do I believe everything he posts or rates as rumors. This board is all about reaching out to other fan bases and discuss some ideas/proposals/suggestions that can make your team better. Of course we all, probably, aren't the new GM's of our beloved hockey teams, although its hard to imagine at least one of us that haven't give it a thought.

The OP was more about the two fan bases arguing about who is available or what would be a need filling trade, than making Eklund more famous. We all know who he is and what his predicting success rate is...we don't need to make more out of it. Lets use him, and his resources, as a good topic to begin OUR own conversations, and nothing more...He won't ever get credit at this board anyway, so lets not spend 50 posts mentioning his name around. From my account I wouldn't either mentioned his name if not necessary to post the rumor source, it self.

For what its worth I do believe that MTL and LAK are good trade partners and some trade suggestions are (considering cap situation)

Bourque+Diaz+pick/prospect for Clifford+Green
Briere+Diaz for Clifford+Mitchell
Briere+Diaz for Stoll+Martinez
Bourque+White for Clifford+Martinez

I consider all the above as minor line up tinkering...What is interesting though is something I read at the Montreal Gazette fan forum, where some fans have inside info that something major is brewing, and a major trade is in works...If true and both clubs are discussing something major what would that be...Something involving top players like Pacioretty/Subban and Kopitar/Doughty? A thought...

Pacioretty+Desharnais+top pick/prospect for Kopitar

Kopitar is a dream that will never happen on the Canadiens.

Point is, one plays a different role for cheap, age 23. The other, age 32, is signed for $3.3M until 2015/2016 and doesnt do what he is supposed to do. With the Kings he would probably score even less. Kings dont have much cap room and then they fill it with another bum.

You only seem to check the statsheet.

You dont have to be an expert to see that normally Bourque is a much better player than Clifford.
