I think the only Gomez for Joe T deal would be something like:

Gomez + MDZ/Grachev + Callahan/Dubinsky for Joe

Players like Thorton don't come around every day ya know......

You can keep Thorton because he CHOKES in the playoffs!

You're batting .1000 today

Mike Komisarek and Joe Thornton

Gomez for Thornton. Sure. A swap of contracts but including one of the Rangers top 2 prospects and 1 of their top 2 young forwards? Come on dude.

Wilson is on record as saying Thornton is the one player he WILL NOT deal. And, as much as I want to get rid of Gomez, Thornton is not the player you give up your best prospects to get - Ovechkin, Malkin and Kovalchuk, sure.

id prefer marleau. more of a scorer, better contract, cheaper in value too.

Jumbo really doesnt address the Rangers issues. They need finishers. He's a playmaker. He could end up being very frustrating on Broadway

I support this deal. Too bad it probably won't happen.

Joe Thgornton is the last player I want to see on the Rangers. Marleau, OK, Thornton no way.

Not a fan either. Good during the regular season, absolutely and utterly miserable in just about every playoff series he's been in.

At least with Drury you know he's trying... he's just not good enough to carry a team. Joe Thornton is... but he hasn't done it once in a playoff series yet

the last 4 seasons as a member of the Sharks Thornton has played 41 playoff games. He's scored 35 points (.854PPG) Hardly what I would call utterly miserable.

LOVE bobby Sanguinetti, i think hes grossly underrated around here, but Duchene is a ridiculous prospect, id take on dead salary just to be able to draft this guy.
I could see Colorado sending the third pick to TB for Lecavalier (which I have heard rumblings about), but not Gomez.

i wonder though, would they send it to us for Gomez, our first this year, our first next year and a prospect like Sanguinetti. That would be a bit more appetizing one would think. essentially its 4 for 1.

and i guess wed have to take a dead salary off their hands, like Smyth or something, which i dont have a problem doing to get a player the caliber of Duchene....id love to see Duchene and Grachev on the same team for their whole career

I don't know about this reporter... trade Gomez for a nominal player, and sign Tanguay (a playmaker) and Knuble (37)???

Over

Gomez, Sanguinetti, 17th for Hejduk and Duchene???

That's hypothetical, doubt it would happen. But if it did, would you pick option 1 or 2?

Option 1: first line of Tanguay-Drury-Knuble

Option two: Hejduk, a goal-scorer (which we've needed since 2006) and the next Mike Modano... hmmm, which would YOU choose?

Id have no problem doing this trade. Considering Most people do not seem to be too high on Sanguinetti, Gomez is Gomez and our first round picks are usually useless, so why not use 2 of them to get a lrgit player in return. I doubt it will happen but you never know.

No, and that wouldn't get it done. Thornton is top 5 in the NHL in his prime... Gomez maybe top 100 in his prime. Grachev, del Zotto, Callahan would all have minimal value in such a trade.

6 goals in those games. SIX! I don't care if he's not a goal scorer, he's still by the far the best player on the Sharks during the regular season.

Most of those points have come pretty much from getting a ton of ice time and just being out there on the ice.

You're right, I misread the post. I thought he meant ALL of those prosecpts, not either/or

If I were Colorado, I wouldn't.

Gomez is a very good player, but not a great player. Sanguinetti will play in the NHL, but the the two firsts are likely to be lower picks.

Now if the Rangers were picking in the top this year, it might make a little more sense. But I don't think I would give up a prime draft pick for a very good, but not great (and overpaid) center, a very nice prospect and two lower first round picks.

To me that just seems to put a burden on my team financially and seems like I am going for quantity over quality.

If I move the pick, I'm looking for a team building block and a game changer. I don't think Gomez is either of those.

Joe has never been a goal scorer. his career number is .317 GPG

Clearly he should have more than 6, but hes not going to have 40 either. Statistically he should have score 13 goals in that time based on his career norms. However in the playoffs you are playing better teams, better goalies, better coaches with better plans on how to shut down one of the best players in the game.

Outside of Henrik Lundqvist and Marc Staal there is not a single Ranger I wouldnt give up to have Joe Thornton on this team. Particularly Gomez or Drury. Joe is 10 times those players, id laugh like a school girl if we could get Thornton from them for say Gomez and a #1.

i probably wouldnt either if i was them, but it would perk my interest enough to start negotiations.

If I'm Colorado, Atlants and Tampa Bay would have my interest (and other teams who would have what I want). I don't know if the Rangers have anything I would want for the third pick outside of Lundqvist and maybe Staal.
