Travis Green would make a good 3rd/4th line C

Is it avail in Beantown? How about Boughner for Green straight up. I know he's nothin great, but he's one helluva PK'er and faceoff man. He would be a nice addition to the checking line.

Kono-Green-Laksonen or Lappy-Green-Hinote.

Green makes 1,7 million.

He would make more than Turgeon this year.

I wouldnt want to pay my 3rd line C more than my 2nd line C.

So I wouldnt do that trade.

No. I'd rather see Hinote or McCormick as our 4th line center.

Scheduled to make $650,000 this season.

I just don't know how well Green would fit in here. Although if it means getting rid of Boughner, I'm more than willing to do it and figure out where Green fits in later. He can play all three forward positions effectively, kills penalties well and is one of the best faceoff men in the game.

Boston is loaded at defense. Make it wotrthwhile.

How about: Green, Gill, and a # 5 for McCormick, Boughner, and a # 3. How about adding Tanguay and Samsonov?

With Boynton still unsigned, that's not really the case.

I should add that we're not getting Hal Gill by trading Boston players like Boughner and McCormick.

Given how loaded the B's are at forward, I thought the Green signing was a strange one. They certainly didn't need him. Then I read that Green is Thornton's buddy and wonder of wonders, was signed shortly after Joe inked his contract. Now it is all explained.

Personally, I would rather have Andy Hilbert on my team.

Count me in the group that want nothing to do with Hal Gill coming to the Colorado Avalanche.

Based on this thread, you'd be the first in that group. I haven't seen anyone else here state that having Hal Gill coming to Colorado would be a bad thing.

So...make your case. Why would it be a bad thing? Other than the fact that we've already got too many NHL defensemen.

I guess you have me on your ignore list then if you haven't seen my posts concerning Gill.

The reason we don't like Boughner is b/c he's too slow. So then you'd rather have a bigger, slower defender who doesn't hit anyone? At least Boughner lays down the occasional crusher. Gimme a break.

Well, we are loaded at defensive rookies (Alberts, Jurcina, Dallman, Stuart), but no, we are not loaded at defence.

Actually, I've been here half of a week. Sorry.

For the record, that reason is specifically why I said "Based on this thread..."

Fair enough, not tryin' to be contentious, just making a point about as adamant as RIAL about not having Gill here, EVER. He's vastly overrated b/c of his immense size.

That'd be an extremely small sample size considering the amount of discussion concerning Hal Gill around these forums. You're new here, so I'd expect you wouldn't know that. No problem.

I find Gill to be extremely slow, an akward defender positionally, far too inconsistent physically and not worth the hassle considering our weakest defensemen are at least on par with him.

There's no way you're getting Travis Green from us, I won't let you have him! You can have Gill and Samsonov (always injured), but leave Green's name out of those trade talks, you hear?

(I'm just having fun with you all. Greetings from Boston, but I still say no way on taking Green- he's ours, and he's not going anywhere)

Gill was a decent 4/5 defenseman in Boston in the past, but Boston used him as a 2/3, which is too far above his capabilities.

He's pretty good at protecting the net, won't cost you in bad penalties, but he's not a fast skater, as you already said.

He's more suitable for the old NHL, but with the new rule that players can now pass over two lines, I fear he's going to have problems with getting the puck out of our end more often than not. He was a great penalty killer, has a long reach and makes decent poke checks because of it, but again, new rules may change his ability to be an effective penalty killer in the newer NHL. We'll have to wait and see how he does this season. I don't mind him being on the team, so long as they use him approrpriately.

Now of course, if the B's wanted any combination of Brisebois/Boughner/Sauer/Leschyshyn for Boynton...

Hell, they can have all four...

Why do we want to trade for another depth player, when in fact this is the deepest team the AVs have had in somtime?
