The Tennessean: Defenseman may be traded

Quote:
From the Tennessean:

Predators General Manager David Poile said a trade may be the best way to thin the team's current crop of defensemen.

The Preds have been carrying eight defensemen the past few weeks, and the return of Robert Schnabel (wrist) in a few weeks adds another to the mix. Starting with tonight's game against Calgary, Poile said it's likely Nashville's next six contests will determine which players stay and which go. Wade Brookbank and Tomas Kloucek, both of whom have been healthy scratches in recent games, may find themselves competing for a single spot on the roster.

...

Defenseman may be traded

Only thing is, neither of the players have done anything to up their trade value

exactly. of the three, kloucek is the only one that carries ANY value and even that isn't much. if one of them is traded, expect it to be for something like a fifth round pick or low level prospect...which is a shame.

That was what I was thinking. I see no reason to trade one of the three for a draft pick unless it was to the effect of not losing them on waivers. Of the three I'd get rid of Brookbank if a trade had to be made.

i agree. i love bloodbank, but with mckenzie back in the lineup, he's a little bit more expendable. combine that with a lot less upside than kloucek....and i think that makes up my mind even further. ideally, i'd like to see allison gone...waived or otherwise, but for some reason he has his spot locked up, despite what i've seen as very weak play. oh well. i guess we'll see.

Tough to tell, especially with Kloucek. Kloucek was the real piece in the Dunham trade, with Murray and Zidlicky being additives. Its safe to say Kloucek's stock has fallen since then. Brookbank could be had for a 6-9th rounder easily.

I too don't see how Allison is in the lineup. It makes you wonder how the team gets a hard on for youth but would rather lose Kloucek or Schnabel for Allison (how has done NOTHING this year).

what's worse is that when we DO trade one of these guys for a draft pick, everyone is going to come out of the woodwork to rail on poile for it, as if we could have gotten more somehow.

No matter what Brookbank had done for us this year so far (which isn't alot), he still has less upside than Kloucek imo. I haven't given up on Kloucek yet. Unless Poile wants to get something out of Kloucek instead of taking a risk with Kloucek's injuries lowering his trade value.

I disagree. My question is what has McKenzie done to prove he's better than Brookbank? Brookbank is by far the best fighter we've had (McKenzie has yet to drop the gloves), and he plays with a nastness only Tootoo can match. Kloucek has done nothing, and when you think he might he gets hurt again, Allison is worse than Trepanier, he brings nothing but goals against, have we even won a game with Allison in the line-up? McKenzie isn't getting any younger so I'd do what I could to keep Brookbank.

i just don't see how losing a serviceable defenseman...to keep a 4 minute a night enforcer(when half of our team drops the gloves already) is a good idea. no..mckenzie hasn't fought yet..but how many games has he been back? 2? who was carrying an enforcer that mckenzie would need to go after? detroit? give him time. he's a better hockey player than brookbank is, too.

Let me further this by saying neither Kloucek nor Allison are as good as Schnabel, and neither can fight like Brookbank, so IMHO it would be better to keep Schnabel and Brookbank.

So because Brookbank can fight we should keep him? I also don't think it is fair to judge Kloucek after 4 games.

That's exaclty what you are doing with Brookbank, who IMHO looks just as good on defense as Kloucek.

Ability to do what, cause he can't clear the slot area as well.

Here's what's going to happen. They'll trade Kloucek, and Brookbank will get claimed off waivers, Allison will play and once again we'll have the biggest ******* on the blueline in the league, just like we've always have had.

i'm by no means an allison fan...but i wouldn't call him a "*****," either. it's not a bad situation to be in...i mean...would you rather we send hamhuis down? he's been, in large, our best defenseman all around.

Kloucek has too much of a (possible) upside, and Brookbank is young as well. I think Brooks and Kloucek should stay, and we could get a 4th rounder for Allison. Allison has hurt us, period, with untimely penalties and overall has done nothing noteworthy, not even little things I have noticed.
