Damn. The hits just keep coming.

I doubt the Panthers would have wanted PAP though. They're not going anywhere.

Avs don't have to keep PAP. Mac is having a great rookie season since he has been moved to top 2 lines. McGinn started producing when he was also moved to top 2 lines. There is no one from current top 6 should be moved down to the 3rd line. And PAP certainly doesn't belong on the 3rd or 4th line.

Trade PAP for a D and then trade prospects or picks for another bottom 6 guy.

We all know they won't do that though.

The PAP "hate" is just bizarre.

It does change things with Tangs being out and keeping PAP around, but there is still enough depth that PAP could still be traded. It is more unlikely than it was 2 weeks ago, but still possible.

Tuomo Ruutu is a guy I've always liked. He has played like crap for the Canes but he has been playing really well in the Olympics. He's injury prone, slowing down, and overpaid but for some reason I still like him. I wouldn't mind him if the Canes agreed to pay half his salary.

Yes, probably makes them hold on to PAP.

That said, they have picks, they have prospects, and they have cap space. I still think they can get the blue line upgrade, even it's just a rental.

I guess I should've added the assumption that PAP would be traded. It's not for sure that he will be traded, but if he is, I think they will look for a wing to replace Tangs. Don't know where I heard this, but wasn't Roy quite the trader when coaching the Ramparts? Make no mistake, I seriously doubt he is done tinkering with the lineup.

I guess we will just have to wait and see if anything happens. But, I just don't expect anything that will be game changing. The most I expect is a move to add depth at D or the wing.

I see Roy was impressed with Radulov at the Olympics.....

"The best player for them, the one who played with urgency and intensity, was Radulov. By far their best player".

And if someone gets hurt we'll just put McLeod on the top line.

Who needs PAP when you have Radulov... A Landy-MacKinnon-Radulov line would be one of the best lines in the NHL. I just wish it wasn't a long shot.

No i didn't say that. I said Avs could also pick up a solid bottom 6 forward who maybe could fill in top 2 lines in case of injuries without giving up too much.

Also Mitchell had moments where he done well on top lines. Having PAP on the 3rd line doesn't help any, and he hasn't been producing on top 2 lines.

Again, Mac and McGinn should stay on top 2 lines because their produce way more than on the 3rd line.

I don’t anticipate any kind of big trade by the Avs by the March 5 deadline. I’d be hugely surprised if one happens. I think what will happen is this: they’ll trade a prospect or two, maybe a future middle-range draft pick or two, for a veteran D-man or forward, probably some guy at the end of his contract who might be a nice depth guy for the the playoffs.

I'd guess the prospects that he is talking about are Elliott and Hishon.

No point in wasting assets for a rental when we could be looking at a first round exit.
I'm actually keeping an open mind. I'm ok with the younger upside player. But I also think a case can be made for giving the team a better chance this year. You don't know what's going to happen in the playoffs. You don't know how long a teams window will be open.

I just don't want them to give assets away because they've been deemed expendable. They should still be maximizing value.

Btw, did anyone notice this parenthetical observation from Dater today?

Quote:
. What does this mean going forward? For one thing, it almost certainly means P.A. Parenteau’s name is off the trade block. If Tanguay had played, Parenteau might have been the expendable forward the Avs could have used to acquire a nice defenseman (although I was always skeptical Parenteau would have been traded, because any contending team probably wouldn’t have given up a real good D-man for him, and any team in selloff mode probably wouldn’t have been attracted to a guy who will be 31 next month, with still two years left on a contract making $4 million per. And I say that second part with full respect for him as a player. I think he’s a good player, period. Is he a great defensive player, whose value decreases rapidly when he isn’t scoring? No and yes. But he’s a guy who can score at any time and I think he is a dangerous player when used properly).
That's got to be one of the longest parenthetical comments I've ever seen.

Btw, nothing against Parenteau but I wouldn't be surprised if he's still dealt.

Isn't Radulov still part of Nashville and getting him will require a trade?

Alexander Radulov

On June 6, 2012, the Nashville Predators announced that they would not be extending Radulov's contract, thus making him an unrestricted free agent.
With him making 9.2 mil per I don't know that he would want to come back to the NHL.

Hopefully a good coach, a great young team a fan base willing to give him a fresh start and 6 million dollars a year.
I'd definitely be one of those fans and I would gladly give him 6 per.

Wouldn't Radulov have to clear waivers to play for us this year?

Probably. It's just not going to happen.
