The life span of a Marleau to Montreal proposal goes like this:
1. Marleau to Montreal for Ryder + a pick proposed.
2. Sharks fans laugh.
3. Non-Sharks fans laugh.
4. Montreal fans scream that SJ is unreasonable for overvaluing Marleau.
5. Shark fans say the team isn't interested in dealing its captain/#1 center-quality star unless it's a gross overpayment.
6. Montreal fans get mad, don't want to give up top talent to acquire Marleau.
7. No. 5 and No. 6 get repeated many times.
8. Thread dies due to another Marleau to Montreal Proposal thread started. Repeat 1-8 in new thread.
Wasn't the whole Marleau trade talk contingent on them signing Drury? If so, isn't any and all Marleau trade talk moot at this point? SJ considers themselves a cup contender and Marleau is a key cog in that quest. Unless it fills an immediate need in that quest, say an experienced top 2 defender, at this point, I don't see any point in having a trade thread regarding Marleau. Montreal doesn't have a top 2 defender to give, so IMO Montreal is out of the running to get Marleau should he be made available.
Just because it's between Montreal and San Jose means that other fans don't 'belong' in the the thread?
That's a bit discriminatory, I'd say.
not when it's over and over and over again. I'd just wish that one day the table turns on you guys, someone proposes something let's say to the Pheonix Coyotes and 3 or 4 Nashville fans come in and tell you to h*ll with all San Jose proposals. There's not may things more annoying then a Kings fan on the trade rumors right now then anything, if you or Doug Wilson or x-sharkie don't like what the guy is proposing that's fine, i too think there should be alot more goingfrom us to the Sharks , and i'm up for a counter proposal any day cause that's how you learn your stuff, but those dumb*ss Kings fans who come in just to point fingers and not saying anything of use should just leave this thread and go troll somewhere else. There's no sign that says mandatory reading anywhere isin't there?
If you don't like it then don't read it or atleast try to make it better. If i see another poster proposing soemthing with a 2nd round pick and a sarcastic smilie aat the end i'm gonna have one major flip, those jokes aren't funny, never was and never will be. So what if Shayne made a bad proposal, next it'l be a better one. There's only 1 insane666 here.
