I'd rather have Boogaard than Gabby. We need more energy than goal scoring at this point, as I feel this team lacks serious emotion.
doesnt Boogaard have the back of a 65 year old man? You cant have Boogaard and Cote on the same team. it just doesnt work.

im hoping it is a REAL defenceman, no Alberts or Emminger ********, I want somebody who can play the game and I would be willing to part with alot of pieces in order to get it.

Maybe Homer wants to make a trade when the players come to each other just like the TB trade with Carle.

Burns would make me very, very happy. I don't see it happening though.

But he's another piece of the Team Canada WJC team with Coburn, Richards, and Carter (although he didn't play in 2005, but he was on a line with Carter and Getzlaf in the 2004 tournament).

Gaborik would be a great pickup. I mean, he's always on LTIR, so he never counts against the cap.

It'd be nice, not even close though. Burns is as close to untouchable as Minnesota has.

Many of you are missing the point. Some of you are on the right pace thinking about Johnsson and Burns (thats never gonna happen). Our problem is not our offense, we have plenty of it. Its our defense that sucks like crap. Get the Gaborik ideas out of your minds and lets focus on what we really need, which is D.

Burns isn't going anywhere. Johnsson is too much money.

I would throw the biggest celebration you could imagine if we got Burns, he is probably my favorite young defensiveman in the league, maybe behind Coburn, but only because he is a Flyer. If we were to get Burns, he would be right up there with Cannon for me.

The only way Minny trades Burns is a SEVERE overpayment. Something like:

Lupul
JVR
Parent
1st

and I don't think that's even enough.

Probably, I wasn't be entirely serious though.

Not for nothing, but I think Cote (with all do respect) is over-rated. He's not feared, and it's more time than not that he's on the losing end of a scrap.

Burns in the guy I like on Minny, and that simply isn't gonna happen.

Not only that, but Jones and Parent are probably more than half way recovered from their injuries and we can't violate the unwritten rule that the Flyers must have at least five or six injured players at all times.

Nope. I dont think Cote is all that. Dont get me wrong, hes fearless and will fight anyone, but sometimes his ego gets in the way and he gets is butt kicked.
I didnt get a shot in get into the Burns discussion earlier but he is a guy that I would want along with everyone else here. But I would be very scared of the price even if he was on the block in Minnesota.

Agree that Burns isn't going anywhere, but disagree that Johnsson is too much money. The guy is only going to turn 32 and is making a little over 5 million bucks a year. He's a very, very, very solid number 2 and would make our defense infinitely better. I'd have no problems offering Hartnell/Lupul and Jones for Johnsson +. Our defense would be much, much, much better with Kim back there. Look at how our top six would look with Johnsson - Timonen, Johnsson, Coburn, Vaananen, Carle, Sbisa. That would be a killer group.

Hey, notice to Holmgren, get a GD goalie and or another defenseman! This team has SICK talent at forward, why is it constantly struggling so bloody much?
