Thank you for putting this in perspective. Ohlund is NOT going anywhere. He signed for dirt cheap in Vancouver because he loves it there. He won't approve a trade anywhere at this point and he's too important to their team.
and you guys hang out and have beers together and you like know his wife and kids and stuff and he told you he signed in Vancouver because he loves it there.
Smith - Timonen
Öhlund - Kukkonen
Jones - Coburn
Parent - Gauthier
And if Rathje will be back, he better be in the shape of his life...
Maybe we can add a fourth line center, Parent is a small gamble...one of Ruzicka, Parent or Downie will grab a spot anyway...main thing is to get rid of Hatcher...Öhlund for Hatcher is a dream come true...also, there is lots of unsigned players in the league...maybe there will be room to sign Selänne!
The big question mark is if the departure of Lupul is worth this...maybe not...a few night of sleep will figure it out...Öhlund is UFA in 09.
thats true. i like ohlund a lot and think he's a great defenseman, but i dont like how much it might cost the flyers, since the canucks value him pretty highly. though if we can dump hatcher or gauthier in a deal for him, i'd be completely ok with that.
