Tanguay and the Draft - "Proposal"

I heard on the Satellite HotStove on CBC that Jokinen was NOT going to stay with the Panthers. So that got me to thinking. With Tanguay unhappy and underutilized in Calgarys system would we consider doing the following deal:

Tanguay and 17th Overall



Tanguay could really flourish in that division and set up Horton. Value wise it's not bad and we all know that Darryl has wanted Jokinen for a long time. We may need to add a bit more maybe a 3rd or something, but I don't think it's totally out to lunch and could benefit both teams...

Is it too much trouble to type in the word, "proposal," in the thread title, so that people aren't lured into thinking that there's real news here?

I really doubt Tanguay is gone at the draft, who is going to be our left winger? I mean Juice is as good as gone.

I personally would rather keep Tanguay and the first round pick. I also editted the title, as this is just a "wish"/thought of the OP.

I'm for/against both. Tanguay is a very strong defensive Left wing and playmaker. He had a bad season, and could have one again. We know he isnt happy, so he probably won't resign. Jokinen is a strong center, who could play well with Iginla. The keyword being 'could'. If Jokinen doesn't get the job done, we've lost the first. Not only that, but we pick up salary that will be with us after Tanguay would have originally been gone, which would probably be put to better use by resigning the youngens.

and IMO, Tanguay wouldn't reach 60 points in Florida. ( just a guess )

That's kind of a lot to give up. I mean, Demitra got O'Sullivan (a damn good prospect, but a prospect nonetheless) and a 17th in a much less deep draft (Trevor Lewis, you might recall.) Plus Minnesota has a much younger team to begin with, and had another first to play with. I'm not necessarily opposed to moving Tanguay, and of course any time you can add a player of the calibre of a Jokinen, great, but this trade, I don't see as necessarily strengthening either the NHL team or the organization as a whole. And in order to make a move, I firmly believe you need to know that it will make you a better team.

Me too. I am excited to see what Sutter is going to do at the draft with his pick. I'd rather keep the first and get a solid young player. I like Tanguay and I think the flames hold onto him to start the season unless they get a really solid trade offer at the draft.

I don't like the idea of us not having any picks in the first two rounds of this years draft. we need more young offensive firepower (especially with Puustinen going to Finland and Ryder not looking to be returning) in our ranks. Keep Tanguay and the draft pick.

I'd like to see us keep the pick to finally draft someone that can put up points and keep Tanguay. I think that we all know Huselius is gone and Sutter will for sure deal Tanguay if he can (I'm not talking about the obvious, if it's an amazing deal like Tanguay for Crosby and Malkin type thing). I don't know how Sutter will rebuild our top 2 LW slots with Huselius and possibily Tanguay gone via free agency becacuse the top end players are not there this year and we don't have any cap space.
