Hissy fit much?
Just watch... If they trade Zher, Timeless will implode.

Could be fun.


Look at it this way Timeless Winter... we got RJ Umberger for Adam Foote and a pick.
That's a helluva good deal.

Ya, one day I read how we have to over pay to get guys to play here then the next day I read we over payed. Man, from the biggest whiner that ever lived, stop whining people.

I've been wrong many a time in my life but I've been right more often, RJ will help this team move forward. Lets face it, how many guys do we have on our team who have had their head nearly knocked off their shoulder (on national TV) and come back to be a scoring factor in the playoffs?

RJ is not Rick Nash but RJ can teach Rick Nash a thing or two about heart...I love the trade and I love RJ!!!!!!!

its just the way it is. when no trades were being made to start the draft it was, we could do that, we need to pay what it takes to make a move. then we do it and we are idiots, suck, and overpaid.

We are competing. We have a great crop of young players that need ice time. There is no way these guys games can mature without real ice time. And I'm not talking Syracuse, I'm talking NHL ice time. Guys like Malkin, Staal and others are good because they get time.

Yes it has to be earned, but getting a brief stint here and there is no way to earn it. Look at other teams high draft picks, they get substantial time and it pays off.

At least RJ Umberger means we'll have some extra cash to throw at guys like Redden and Campbell in free agency, not to mention an offer sheet to Vermette.

Bottom line is RJ is an upgrade who will stick in this organization. It might be an overpayment by HF standards but who gives a **** if we start putting the puck in the net more.

I'd wonder if we could get Vermette for our 2nd and Fritsche.

OK, if you're GMSH and San Jose calls - they offer Marleau for Zherdev and our 2nd rounder - do you do the deal? I don't.

Sorry, "build slowly" was a poor choice of words. What I meant was that I don't mind making several good small moves as opposed to one huge move.

No, not without a defenseman.

Dunno. Maybe if we're planning on getting Malone I think about it.

My Mock is looking ok...a good amount of misses, but I landed Stamkos, Pietrangelo, Beach, Boychuk, Hodgson and Wilson all right on the mark and Tuebert at the right number...

Malone - Umberger - Zherdev
Chimera - Malhotra - Brule
Murrary - Novotny - Boll

Hejda - Campbell
Klesla - UFA
Russell - Rome

They won't trade Marleau if they can't sign Campbell
