It's a starting point (Chimera would be the most likely to be on the move) but I wouldnt want to give up Ruth and a mid round pick for Babchuk. Teddy isnt too far off, I'd expect him to be fighting for a spot in '10-11... I'd prefer Regner instead of Ruth, but perhaps I'm too high on him... Either way, I think its a decent proposal, although I am not sure if Carolina would want to take on Chimera

If they dont want Chimer because of the money thing we can give em Regner, or Ruth and a 3rd rounder with a possibilty to become a 2nd?

What's the track record of that Twitter site? Accurate? Gets a few right? Eklund-esque?

To CAR:
-Defensive prospect of Carolina's choice not named John Moore.*
-2nd or 3rd

To CBJ:
-Babchuk

While I love what I hear of Ruth, I would trade he and Chimmer in a heartbeat for Babs. I mean, he's got a frickin cannon from the point.

If anyone takes Chimera and his 1.8 million dollars they are nuts, unless we give them a real player such as Klesla or Voracek in the deal. Howson did that when he took Backman to get Tyutin and dump Zherdev..

I would rather pass on getting Babchuk than trade away Goloubef, Regner, Klesla or Voracek.

Klesa's game is limited. He's not the two way guy we thought he was. I'd trade Klesa for 6'5 r handed shot who can run the PP in a hearbeat. Don't forget Klesa has been very injury prone of late.

any defensive prospect outside of Regner and Moore. I'm really high on Regner and I think he can turn into the guy we're looking for. Plays well on both sides of the ice too, so he'd be a tough one to lose.

Amen. Babchuk has a cannon (so does Ruth, though he's not NHL ready) but he's only had one good year and has been in and out of the minors for the past couple years. I would probably offer Ruth for him, and maybe someone else but that's Howson's job, not mine. Maybe Regner.

But Voracek? That would be just plain nuts. That boy is going to be an all-star. Mark my words.

Three concerns I have:
- we are lacking in NHL caliber defensemen. Last season, we used nine. Right now, we have six, maybe seven.
- Klesla can fetch us more at the trade deadline.
- If he has the season some think he will have (we got a glimpse in the playoffs), you may not WANT to trade him. Defensemen take longer to mature.

Before this gets out of control I simply used Klesla and Voracek as examples of the player caliber needed to be wrapped in a Chimera package... Little known prospects will not get a deal done for any player that includes Chimera.

Understood Robert. Chimera is Latin for "skates of lightning, hands of stone."
BTW, I would offer Manny Malhotra a 1-2 year, two-way contract that paid him $2 million in Columbus, considerably less in the Cuse. This would get us by until we can draft, develop or trade for more center prospects.

I guess we agree then. I threw Klesla's name in the mix because I also think it's going to to take a Klesla/Methot type to make this happen. I could see chimmer getting dealt for picks somewhere down the road. His salary is a real noose around our neck

I don't think I can agree with that. Chimmer's a "plus" third line forward, and is paid appropriately for that level of skill. But as there are lots of people with cap overloads about to enter camp everyone else also knows we have a forward logjam and would like to steal one for us.

Where in the world are Boll, Murray or Dorsett going to play if we bring up Filatov and everyone stays healthy? Which is possible, for at least the first part of this season. Where do we put Picard if he takes up where he left off last season? What about Mayorov or Sestito if they take giant leaps forward? If we see opportunity for a bargain from teams over the cap, our logjam must seem like opportunity to other GMs.

I like Manny, always have, but our team is moving past what he can give us for the cost. I think Howson is looking to build this team from our depth and youth pipeline. Scott wants to build an organization not just an annual team roster as MacLean did.

My money is 'all in' on Howson doing the right thing at the right time, and that includes all aspects of the organization. Scott Howson will be here for a long time.

True Robert. So who are our prospects at center? Can't name 3 good ones? Make the offer to Manny. He allegedly has better offers on the table from Atlanta and Carolina, so he may not sign it anyway.

FlaggerX, teach one of them to play center or defense???

...and he would laugh in your face.

There is no way Manny would accept a 2-way deal. The guy has had offers, including one from us, but has turned them down. Manny is making his own bed.

Then he can laugh his way down to Atlanta or over to Europe. I have no problem with that.
