Does Gainey need to make a move? (Trade Proposal Thread)

Make that Lecavalier trade - sure it'll cost a lot, but he can lead us to glory 28 21.37%
Trade for Peter Mueller - he's started slowly, he's big, and he's got a good touch around the net 29 22.14%

Go after Ryan Clowe - He's big and he scores goals 22 16.79%

Seeing as we need a centerman we'll probably get another franchise goalie.

Good of you to admit we already have one though.
LOL we don't have a franchise goalie. People act like Price is a sure thing. There is no such thing as a sure thing, especially when it comes to goaltending. All we have is hopes and dreams that one of them will become one.

I know you haven't slept in my bed so you must be basing this bet on the time you slept in Gainey's bed.

Moen - Metropolit - Lapierre

Pacioretty - Pyatt - Chipchura - White - Neilson

Laraque and Stewart: OUT !
3 points in 16 games for a so-called budding power forward?

0 points in his past 4 playoff appearances?

If his name was Wilson he'd be outta here by now...

sorry

How about this:

A. Kostitsyn-Gomez-Gionta
Pacioretty-Plekanec-Cammalleri
Moen-Pyatt-Metropolit
Latendresse-Chipchura-Lapierre
Spare: White, Stewart
IR: d'Agostini, Laraque

Spacek-Hamrlik
Carle-Gorges
Mara-MAB
Spare: Leach
IR: Markov, O'Byrne, Gill

At home, if the other team can't get a good matchup against his top line, JM could switch A.Kost and Cammalleri.

The third line is FAST, can pot a few and should play against the opponent's top line. Containing the opponent's best scorers is a very good way to win games.

When he comes back, D'Agostini could replace Chipchura or whoever else is determined to be the weakest performer at the time.

MAB has to be in the lineup for PP duty, but should have limited play otherwise. Leach could be given a chance if Carle falters, though I found Carle's second game much better than the first.

but that 2nd line is sad, plec's has no one to be creative with
Well, Bob could trade Andrei Kostitsyn for a winger capable of 23-27 goals.

And he could trade Latendresse for a winger capable of 16 goals.

Oh, wait......

Another option for a guy who I'm pretty sure could compete every night and score 15-20 with Plekanec on his line is.....Glen Metropolit. Tom Pyatt is obviously recovered from his concussion and should be a good defensive player that could replace Glen's in his previous role.

You know, it's been awhile I thought Martin should put Metropolit with Andre. But your idea of teaming the two with Pleks is not a bad idea.

Plekanec is fine. A kostitsyn is waking up.

We need another top 6 forward, that's all.

Not sure if it would be right to call him up (hockey wise yes, but honestly, the way he acted, you have to think twice)

Why don't they use Cammalleri with Pleks?
Most of their points have come together yet they rarely play together.

Plekanec does not have enough strenght to play 5v5. He needs a tank to play with him.

When you pay your top line over 18mill a year, you can't afford a second line.

Like it or not our offense for the next 5 years will rest solely on the shoulders of three players.

He's been our best forward in the corners this season. I don't know what team you've been watching.

I think most of us know that since preseason, but bobby got 3 stanley cups blocking each ear.. i would really like in gainey`s side that he had those J.Martin`s ears, cause even then 3 stanley cups each ear wouldn't be enough.. 2nd line player lacking is the main reason i am pissed whatever the result is at this point, optimistic should remove pink glasses, we have 1 regulation win !!! ONE !!!


GET A *********** 2ND LINE PLAYER!!!!! i dont care about the cap, philly finds a way to jampack the lineup like crazy... but here, nooooo, we can blame all we want the defense truth is the real problem i the lack of support to the first line.. simply put, Pleky did all he could obviously every team knows when the 2nd line is on the ice, only pleky needs attention.. let Andrei fumble the puck or whoever is playing left side..

if gainey get a 2nd line player at least i could say WE REALLY TRY TO WIN.. but right now, i am freaking sure Martin doesnt feel like bobby is trying to help him..

Well he has more immediate potential than everybody else that we could try on the second line.
