Buyers, sellers, or do nothing?

So obviously this is a hot topic right now. What do you want to happen on the deadline? Should we looking for help, continue the rebuild, or go with what we got and hope it works out Giants style.

Become secondary buyers. No Sundin, no Blake, no Hossa. Maybe a guy like Klesla or Stillman.

Depends on a lot of factors. Injuries, our place in the standings this time next week, Foppas health, etc.

my guess is we'll be buyers, id rather us think about the future, become buyers for Hossa, and sellers for Shanny, Straka, and Jagr.

buyers, its PO's or bust, no turning back for that goal, you can't make it 2 yrs in a row and settle for missing the next, this team just needs to make the PO's and begin the 2nd season.

I chose sell... I now see what the future of this team is, and I can't say it includes Jagr, Straka and the Czech Republic Club (aside from Pruchs and Rozy if the price is right...) I also smell something brewing because I see the icetime being distributed differently than in the first half of the season...

The only thing we'd be buying is new legs for Jagr because he's obviously lost them...

I said nothing, becuase there isn't an option for role player. I don't think we have assets that we're willing to give up to get the stud d-man we need, and I don't see us trading Shanny or Jagr for a lesser player.

That is the key. The organization has it's core it wants to build on and if we can add a few assets to that core in a trade then do it.

I do not expect us to make a run this year. It will take this year and some of next for Gomez and Drury to start taking over. Gomez has already show flashes.


I'd LOVE to trade up for a Kris Beach...

the only reason i say sell is because i believe some of our kids will come up and play thier hearts out and probaly win more games than the vets that arent even producing anyways

id like him too but there is another player i would take above Beach if they are both available. Im taking Nikita Filatov over him. Filatov played with Anisimov and Cherepanov and formed that top line for the Russians at the WJC. That line in the NHL would be very fast and would have alot of skill. Cherry's and Filatov's offensive skills combined with Anisimov's playmaking and defensive skills would make it a very formidable line

Yeah, I'm hoping we can pick Filatov up as well.

As for as selling...Jagr, Shanny, Straka and picking up some young guys along with a vet forward and dman.

Hossa would be good if we had the cap to fit him.

Just have to wait and see what happens by the end of the month.

Nothing. I'm willing to give this team the rest of the season to see if they can shake their inconsistent ways and find a way to score on the power play. If they can't, well they had their shot. If they can, then great. But I'm certainly not interested in mortgaging any part of our future to get that one guy who's supposedly going to put us over the top. This team is not one guy away from anything.

I don't believe the team will mend it's ways with the present lineup, i.e. fixing the powerplay might require the injection of a very good defenceman. These polls are too binary (buy or sell), we should sell a couple of vets but also buy what we need, a savvy experienced d-man with offensive wheels should add goals-per-game and be a mentor to the younger defencemen.

Sell....don't gut the team, but sell off what's not crucial and not in the plans for next season....aka Jagr.

I'm interested to hear what picks and or prospects the buyers are willing to give up to get what they want to buy?

...and don't say Prucha because, besides being hurt, his stock is at an all-time low atm.

i'd be shocked if they are sellers. i think sather makes some reasonable trades without sacrificing any of our assets for short term solutions.

definitely do not see him trading players like rozy or straka.
doubt he trades jagr but i wouldn't be shocked if it happened.

malik and prucha unfortunately i think are as good as gone.
i am sure there will be a trade or two and when it happens i can't imagine both aren't involved.

sell sell sell......jagr, straka, shanahan all arent doing much as it is, trade them for good young players and as many 1st's you can get.....and then try and trade those same picks for a player like hossa and resign him.....the team gets both younger and better
