With Straka on the streak that he is, and probably the most consistent offensive player this year, no.

Sounds like a fair trade but Our D men are getting old... But I still think we could use one more fiery foward up front.

Why would we trade Straka the way he is playing lately?

Straka and a 1st rounder for Jack Johnson.

I'd love to get JJ.

no way, i would not give up a first rounder for a player who has not played in the NHL. Even though the Rangers dont draft well in the first round of late.

JJ for Straka.

I'd have to think about that real hard.

Don't worry, the Kings would hang up the phone.

BTW, a first round pick has not played in the NHL either.

I wouldn't. I'd drive Marty to JFK myself. Make him a thermos of cocoa as well.

Straka's been great. But if I can get a player who could be a mainstay on the blueline for the next 15 years, you gotta do it.

Have to agree there. Imagine a top pairing of Staal and JJ...wow!

agreed, Straka is having a great year but he isn't a spring chicken, he almost didn't even play in the NHL this year. He was contemplating retirement or playing in the Czech. You get a chance to trade for a young top 2 dman for him you do it in a second.

Straka is old, JJ could be great for the next 10-15 years. In a heartbeat. The team we have is going nowhere fast.

Straka for JJ? Done and Done. Yes the move breaks up arguably the best line in hockey right now but this team is not built to be a championship team. Dealing an aging Straka and his $3.1 million contract for an young elite defenseman not only sets up this team to have the best defense in the NHL in a couple of seasons but frees up more cap space to sign or trade for a younger #1 center.

That would be great but would Sather EVER make a move like this? I think not.

A better question would be if the Kings GM would do that

Would Sather make such a move? Probably not, the man's an idiot. But why on earth would the Kings do this deal? Trading a future defensive stud for Straka, whom I love but who does not have much time left as a top-line player.

lol this is true but Sather would have to think of this idea first in order for him to approach the Kings GM with the offer. Would Sather ever even consider thinking about something like this? lol nope.

Rangers refuse if the trade is Vishnovsky - Straka, Kings refuse if it's JJ - Straka. Case closed.
