All future trades which involve star players will be put as rumor first (only lopsided trades), all other GM's can place their offers to each team. We want to keep the trades fair. Do not post your trades here, send ALL TRADES TO HankPank (if trades involve Tampa and Anaheim, they go to boss_7). If he believes the trade ain't fair (I will stress again), he will post it as a rumor on this thread.
THIS THREAD IS ONLY FOR RUMORS, TRADES, ON THE BLOCK PLAYERS. WE ASK FOR NO NEGATIVE JUDGMENT OF TRADES WHATSOEVER. IF YOU HAVE A DISAGREEMENT OR COMPLAINT, PLEASE DO NOT POST IT HERE. PM boss_7
To keep things fair from now, I would like every trade to be shown approved by each GM.
have made a strong offer to Anaheim Ducks for Chris Pronger. They believe the deal will be done by midnight. If Ottawa can acquire Chris Pronger, it will be a huge boost to their Stanley Cup run next year. However, they are believed to be giving away their top defensive prospect and Anton Volchenkov.
Lebron James Apparently Pavol Demitra has been placed on the trading block in Vancouver. Pavol has interest in joining some of his old teams and has already expressed this to the media. One team is Los Angeles. He loves the young talent they have and thinks he can help that team make the playoffs. And the other is the Minnesota Wild. He hopes they can resign UFA Marian Gaborik and they can reunite for the second time.
Pierre McGuire: wow Bob are you kidding me?! Vancouver lands Vincent Lecavalier and Jordan Staal. This is HUUGE. MONSTER HUGE. They finally get a number 1 star in Vinny, something they haven't had in years. And they get one of the best 2-way players in the game in Jordan Staal, both cup winners.
Then TB gets an excellent package of youth and picks and Anaheim gets a similar player in Staal and a pick and young D-man. WOW. Now this was a hockey deal folks.
Ottawa's GM: I am guessing you are all wondering why we traded our top forward in Jason Spezza...
Reporter: We do not really understand, what are the Ottawa Senators trying to accomplish here.
OGM: We want to be a Stanley Cup contender next year. We want to shave off some salary. We want to go into this UFA market to get the best players available. We want to acquire a special player at the NHL entry draft this year. Really, our roster has not been torn apart. We have gotten Pavel Demitra. He has experience and can still put up 60-70 points per season. If you look at our contracts situation, we think we have done a decent job.
Look, I want you all to understand, we have a much younger team with a few added leadership. We attained Hodson, VanRiemsdyk, Weight, Demitra and Gagne, and quite frankly I do not think we are in a bad position as people are making it sound like.
Reporter: So tell us, how close are you to acquiring a top pick at the draft.
OGM: Very close...
Reporter: What about your defensive situation?
OGM: We are not worried about that. We are looking to acquire a top defensman at the UFA and at the draft we are looking to grab the top defensive prospect. Our goal next year, is to win the Stanley Cup, as is every year. Ottawa fans deserve it, at the same time, we ask them not to panic with the current situation. Trust me, by the end of this season, you will be pleased to see a new Ottawa team. This was our goal. We missed the *bleaping* playoffs this year, and darn right we needed a change in shape. I can't handle a mediocre year after year. I want the Cup in this city.
Reporter: Are you confident about Pascal Leclaire especially being injured throughout most of the season?
OGM: You tell me, if we weren't confident, would we have acquired him?
