Awards:
1 - trade the two K brothers for Jordan Staal?
No...never been a big fan of Staal. He's not really what we need either.

2 - trade Plekanec and O'Byrne for Marc-André Bergeron and Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
Yup.

3 - trade Plekanec and Higgins for Patrick Marleau?
Yup.

4 - prefer Bouwmeester at 6M or Komisarek at 4.5M?
Bouwmeester at 6m in a heartbeat.

5 - offer more money to Gaborik or Hossa?
Hossa, easily.

6 - prefer a trade for Souray or Streit in an effort to boost our PP?
Souray is exactly what we're missing on this team.

7 - Hire Hartley, Lever or Thérien as coach?
Whoever's the best man for the job. Personally I'd put them in order of preference as Lever, Hartley, and then Therrien.

8 - Do what it takes to get Lecavalier in Montreal?
No...that bridge has been burned either way.

9 - If you can re-sign only two of Koivu, Kovy, Lang and Tanguay, which ones do you sign?
Koivu and Tanguay.

10 - promote Subban to the big club next year?
No, give him at least a year in the AHL.

11 - keep Halak or trade him and acquire a veteran backup for Price?
Keep Halak and trade for a veteran backup. Three headed monster, baby!
But if we get really unlucky in the offseason (all our big UFAs leave and we don't sign anyone) then I would trade Halak for some offense.

my take... Trade Halak, get some veteran experience here quick!! to tell Carey to just ignore everything Melanson says...
LOL awesome comment and I agree. Another comment I agreed with too is to keep Halak and make him the #1 next season FORCING Price to actually earn his keep rather then just handing it to him because he was a 5th overall pick.

1 - trade the two K brothers for Jordan Staal?
No. While Jordan Staal may be the more complete player, I still have a lot of faith in A. Kostitsyn and I think that he can become a 70-80 point player sooner rather then later.

2 - trade Plekanec and O'Byrne for Marc-André Bergeron and Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
my take... in a heartbeat because Bouchard is so much better than Plek.
No. Once again, I believe that Plekanec is a better player then PM Bouchard. He might of had a bad year but I do not doubt that he has talent and that he will come back strong in 2009-2010.


3 - trade Plekanec and Higgins for Patrick Marleau?
Yes. If there is a deal like this to be made for a top end center then I would do it.

4 - prefer Bouwmeester at 6M or Komisarek at 4.5M?
In a heartbeat. I am not a big fan of Komisarek and I find Bowmeester to be the perfect top 2 defencemen that this team needs. I would gladly pay the 1.5M extra.

5 - offer more money to Gaborik or Hossa?
Hossa mainly because of Gaborik`s injury problems.

6 - prefer a trade for Souray or Streit in an effort to boost our PP?
Streit. He has improved tremendously since joining the Islanders primarly due to him having a bigger role on the back end.

7 - Hire Hartley, Lever or Thérien as coach?
None.

8 - Do what it takes to get Lecavalier in Montreal?
No but if there is a possible deal then think about it hard.

9 - If you can re-sign only two of Koivu, Kovy, Lang and Tanguay, which ones do you sign?
Kovalev and Koivu simply because they are the two only ones that show up in the playoffs

10 - promote Subban to the big club next year?
Keep him in Hamilton

11 - keep Halak or trade him and acquire a veteran backup for Price?
Keep Halak unless an interesting offer is made for him.

1 - trade the two K brothers for Jordan Staal?
No, potential of two k brothers is much higher

2 - trade Plekanec and O'Byrne for Marc-André Bergeron and Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
Borderline yes but they probably wouldn't

3 - trade Plekanec and Higgins for Patrick Marleau?
A bit on the fence but more likely no.

4 - prefer Bouwmeester at 6M or Komisarek at 4.5M?
I'd give Bouwmeester the same as Markov if he doesn't take it then Komi.

5 - offer more money to Gaborik or Hossa?
Gaborik. I am not worried about his injuries.

6 - prefer a trade for Souray or Streit in an effort to boost our PP?
Streit.

7 - Hire Hartley, Lever or Thérien as coach?
Lever

8 - Do what it takes to get Lecavalier in Montreal?
Depends on the return. I would overpay slightly but not much. something like Plek, higgins, Mcdonagh and a first rounder

9 - If you can re-sign only two of Koivu, Kovy, Lang and Tanguay, which ones do you sign?
Koivu and Kovy if they are willing to take a bit of hometown discount.

10 - promote Subban to the big club next year?
No, no need ro rush him, he needs one more year at least.

11 - keep Halak or trade him and acquire a veteran backup for Price?
I would trade him under only two scenarios.
- He is traded in a package for a big player (Lecavalier)
- If he can get a first-rounder or decent prospect
Otherwise no.

I can't believe some people are willing to pay the world for lecavalier, a guy coming off an injury, looking like he's declining as it is, who has a 10 year 10 million dollar contract that any team would be happy to dump for free at this point due to the cap.

Imo Tampa's GM should be fired for that stupid move. If he doesn't manage to move Vinny within 1-2 years imo he will be, because I just don't see Vinny ever producing above 80pts again, and it's not like he did it frequently to begin with.

1 - trade the two K brothers for Jordan Staal?
No. I actually like Jordan Staal (I don't know why I hate Eric Staal though) but these boards would get all ******** and **** when the Kost brother have success next to Crosby or Malkin. They'd EASILY both hit 80 PTS with one of Crosby or Malkin.

2 - trade Plekanec and O'Byrne for Marc-André Bergeron and Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
my take... in a heartbeat because Bouchard is so much better than Plek.
Seems like a sideways trade.


3 - trade Plekanec and Higgins for Patrick Marleau?
Nop. Marleau would buckle under the pressure of the MTL media.

4 - prefer Bouwmeester at 6M or Komisarek at 4.5M?
At that price? Jay-Bo fo sho! But he won't sign here, let alone for that much.

5 - offer more money to Gaborik or Hossa?
Hossa. But like Jay-Bo he probably wouldn't come here either.

6 - prefer a trade for Souray or Streit in an effort to boost our PP?
Streit. More manageable contract.

7 - Hire Hartley, Lever or Thérien as coach?
Lever + French Teacher (For you know who)

8 - Do what it takes to get Lecavalier in Montreal?
No. If he were to falter in Montreal it would be a self-implosion of Lecavalier and the entire city.

9 - If you can re-sign only two of Koivu, Kovy, Lang and Tanguay, which ones do you sign?
After seeing what Tanguay, Koivu, Kovalev could do together I'd try getting all three or let em walk. 2/3 wouldn't cut it.

10 - promote Subban to the big club next year?
Bulldogs.

11 - keep Halak or trade him and acquire a veteran backup for Price?
Keep Halak, these board seriously over-value Halak. He would not fetch a good enough return at this point.
