What does your team need?

there are a lot of trade proposals that end up in a scrap because a team is offered a player they have no use for. Most of us closely follow only one team so we have a good idea of what our team needs. I thought it might be a good idea to have a central location for each team's requirements so that matches could be identified. I will start:

The oilers need a goaltender to fill the 2-3 year void before Desaulier becomes our starter.

We need a big centre who can score enough to play on our top 2 lines.

A top five pick in this years draft. And if we keep tying all of our games, I think we'll get it.

ST LOUIS BLUES
#1: A 2-4 Defenseman
#2: A top two line forward

And since they don't have much to offer, Pleau will have to be targeting the rent-a-players.

Don't be too sure -- CBJ, Pitt and Wash are going to give you a run for your suckiness and everyone knowns Florida will find a way to win the lottery again.

Anyway,

CBJ -- picks (a second rounder this year would be nice), prospects and/or young guys ready to contribute (d's and c's prefered, but not too picky about position, except no goalies needed).

Detroit could use a big forward or two. I'm still on the Lindros bandwagon. I think he could work out well in Detroit. No pressure what so ever. Which the goalie circus, the press would be saying Lindros who?

"The Blues can't trade Demitra for two players that aren't under contract beyond this year."

so what is it that you want rent-a-players or guys under contract. remember you will have to trade somebody if you want to get a 2-4 defenseman and a top 6 forward.

Thrashers

We need 1 or two top 4 D-men (who doesn't)
We need another scoring center badly that can keep up with Kovalchuck.

This thread is asking me what the Blues need. I answered that question and then I added how I think Pleau would have to get it done.

My post that you quoted was in response to a trade proposal that sent Demitra to Boston for two UFA's to be. IF the Blues decided to move Demitra, that would not fly.

For the Avs:

--An experienced goalie-I am still not sold on Aebischer although I will admit he has been better than I thought he would be. Unless he falters in the next month, the Avs will probably look for a goalie who could backup Aebischer but would give the Avs a chance to win in the playoffs if Aebischer isn't up to the task. I would really prefer an experienced starting goalie...but that puts me in the minority...

--A solid 3rd/4th/5th defenseman. A UFA-to-be would be fine...if he can be had for a 3rd round pick or a so-so prospect. I would love to get Klemm back but I think he would cost to much...

--One more 3rd/4th line forward. Again, a UFA-to-be would work and would add some experience to the Avs 4th line. Mike Ricci would be perfect...but the Avs would not be able to give up much so he may be too expensive...

Short Term:1. Healthy goalies
2. Another top 6ish forward who could take some of the scoring pressure off Iginla and whomever is playing on his line

Long Term:1. Big number one center (I'm guessing everyone would like one of those)

i have to say, i do think we will out-suck you guys this year.

almost more important thatn a top 3 pick, we need a new owner. and new GM. and new coach.

Kings Needs

A set of qualified doctors for the injured (mail order medical licenses and medical schools in Kerplekistan do not count)
A shrink for those who think they're injured
A gypsy or a witchdoctor to remove the curse





I'll settle for a fundamentally sound goalie, a tough good skating defenseman, and a coach who will put Frolov on a line with some teammates where he can generate some offense.
