Trading or waiving Jones opens up some great options. He could make a good move by dumping salary in some ways.

Yeah, I agree. Obviously I'd love J-Bo, but I wouldn't cry one bit if we had Pronger on our blueline.

Nothing will happen with the goalies and our forwards are fine. Defense should be the only place that we're looking to make an addition (while hopefully dumping some dead weight and salary).

Yeah this is most likely. I really want Jones off this team or Alberts relegated to the 7th D position.

I'm alright with Jones-Vaananen, but Alberts has come back to earth in a big way.

we NEED a goalie. Our goalies are nowhere close to Stanley Cup caliber goalies. I can deal with the small lack of defense sometimes if we had a reliable goalie to get us out of those jams.

we NEED a defensive system. I guess Im alone in backing Biron, but im comfortable with him as long as this team plays fundamental D. Which they have issues doing. If we do that and Biron still lets in 5 goals a night and single handily costs us games, Ill drive him to the airport. There is no market for a Stanley Cup caliber goalie.

- Defensive addition.

JVR, Lupul, Carle (possible pick) for Jay Bouwmeester

*only way I do this, is if we could sign him.



I know it's a pipe dream, but this would make me very happy.

So on the one hand, you are extremely worried about our cap problems.

On the other hand, you want to give us even more cap problems.

Confusing to me a bit.

Unless someone can tell me how the Flyers are going to snag Brodeur at the deadline, it's pretty clear that the only improvement this team can make through a trade is on defense. Whether or not the Flyers can work something out for a big name defenseman remains to be seen.

You're not the only one; don't worry.

I should add I'm in favour of a defensive addition as long as it's not Witt.

Please tell us who is available that is an upgrade, and if they are BOTH available, and an upgrade, why are they an upgrade, and what has he done that Biron has not?

Bouwmeester does nothing for this team IMO. I'm all for trading Lupul and Jones for veteran fits that will be UFA after this season, but that's more salary cap related than anything.

I voted for the third option.

With Giroux, Parent and hopefully Briere all getting integrated into the team I'm not sure we really NEED to add anything. I'm not against acquiring someone or moving a player or two (for instance, trading Jones wouldn't upset me ) but I don't want to move some of our real quality prospects only to get Adam Oates'd in return. I think we have the talent here already.

A ****ing men.

I would love to get a goalie but no one is out there. No one is an upgrade over Biron. The way Biron played in last year's playoffs I believe we could of won the cup. Last time I checked, Cam Ward was not an elite goaltender when he won the cup.

I voted nothing. If the option was there i would have picked to ditch Jones in a gutter somewhere.

Get a goalie or defenseman while not costing anything silly, like JVR.

Oh, also put Alberts to the pressbox and let Ossi play.
