Trade speculation

Here's a little game:
Part I - What trade would you do as a GM?
Part II - What trade do you think Gainey will do?

Part I
I would trade Souray for a young NHL defensemen + good D prospect
Trade Rivet for a draft pick
Trade Samsonov and a pick to Chicago for Aucoin

Part II
Trade Samsonov and Perezhogin to Chicago for Aucoin and Lapointe
Trade Markov to Minnesota for Benoit Pouliot and a pick
(who knows, he might just trade Koivu and Markov for P-M Bouchard and Pouliot)


I thought of other ones in my sleepless hours last night but can't remember them...

I'll cream my pants
Part 1 : Souray for Carle and 2nd /Murray for the thing that Zetterberg ate in the past 2 weeks
Part 2 : Markov for Burns and 1st pick.

Part I
I would commit to one of Bonk or Johnson, and trade the other.
I'd trade Rivet.
I'd look to unload Ryder, but if no decent offer is made, keep him
edit: I'd also look to unload Danis if at all possible. Now that Huet's injured, probably not, but I'd have looked at that.

Part II
I think Gainey will trade Rivet
I think Gainey will pick up a cheap veteran.
I think Gainey's not willing to part with good prospects or high picks

I don't get why you would trade Samsonov who sucks but has just 1 more year to go for another guy who sucks Aucoin that has 3 years to go?

Not that I particularly want him, but we need signed defensemen if we're trading Rivet and Souray. Aucoin wasn't that bad before Chicago, so he can certainly rebound. That's about what you'd get for Sammy.

Part I - What trade would you do as a GM?
Part II - What trade do you think Gainey will do?

Part I
I would trade Kovalev for Guerin
Trade Markov for Carle or Vlasic

Part II
I expect Kovalev to be traded. I think that one of Souray/Markov will be traded. Samsonov will stay here, so will Bonk and Aebisher.

Buf if you're willing to spend $4m on Aucoin for the next two seasons, why not $5 or $5.5 on Souray?

Part I
I'd trade Souray and Ryder or a prospect (Perezhogin or Kostitsyn) for Pierre-Marc Bouchard.

Part II
I think he'll trade Souray to San José for Pavelski and a 1st rounder.

Part I: I would trade Souray + 1st or 2nd to SJ for Marleau
Kovalev + Rivet to Edm for Smyth + Greene + 5th
I could go on forever with the trades I would make to get players we NEED!

Part II: Souray to SJ for Bell + 2nd and I don't see Bob making many more moves than that.....IF he even makes that trade.
I hope Bob makes some noise before trade deadline, but it wouldn't surprise me if he didn't make one move at all.

Sorry to say that, but Bell stock as drop dramaticly since he is in SJ. Souray is worth more than Bell and a 2nd IMO.

Wow! Bell is having a year off, this would be the perfect time to aquire him. SJ will be happy to get rid of his salary, do you think they might even consider taking Samsonov's salary instead.

Dream trade:
To SJ:
Souray, Samsonov
To MTL:
Bell, Pavelski/draft pick

Stewart is not part of their organization anymore. He is playing in Buffalo in the AHL.

We must get bigger!!!

So I hope Gainey swings a deal to get...

•1•.....Bell+Vlasic from SJ for Souray & Ryder & Boullion
I HIGHLY doubt they take Samsonov, but I would give up alot to include him.

Part I - What trade would you do as a GM?
Part II - What trade do you think Gainey will do?

Part I - Unload Samsonov if I could get a 3rd round pick and call up Kostsitsyn. Trade Kovalev if I could get a second round pick and mid-level prospect to make cap room and give younger players a chance. Trade Bouillon if I could get a 4th round pick and bring up Cote or Jancevski (if they don't have to go through waivers) as the seventh defenseman. Streit filled Bouillon's spot early in the year and the team was winning.

Part II - I think Gainey will stand pat.

PS - If San Jose offered the moon (Vlasic or Carle, Mark Bell, a 1st round pick and a mid-round pick) I would be very tempted. I'd even throw in Samsonov if they added a player or pick to their side.

Yeah because us Canadians don't like to drink at all!

Seriously, I remember reading that Canadians have more guns and drink more per capita than Americans.

I'd do Souray for Pavelski and a first rounder, if Bob Gainey insisted on the first rounder. I think I've explained why Vlasic, Carle, and Bernier are not going anywhere.

I agree with you. It's time to get Bell, but Souray for Bell + 2nd isn't enought at all. I would see a Samsonov-Bell trade because we all know Samsonov might do well with Joe. It would only remove 1,5M$ to SJ cap space. I wish it happened, but again, in the worst case, I expect Samsonov to do well next year, specially if Kovalev isn't around.
