Thornton Idea

There's a discussion going on the trade board about Joe's value...

I thought this might fecht him, and not be a terrible deal for us considering his age and our lack of "impact" centers.



Legwand, Upshall, Arkhipov, and a 2nd rounder.

I think I might be overpaying a bit.


My thought process is this: Premium Centers with the size and ability of Thornton are rare. Legwand, while talented, hasn't shown us that he can have an impact night after night. Upshall appears to me to be a rugged winger, a good PK'er with a bit of offensive upside and a motor that never quits. Arkhipov...well, we all know..

if we could get him for that I'd do it.

I'd make that deal as well. Adding Upshall makes it kind of pricey but Thornton is still relatively young and is a bona fide star in the league. That would seriously give us some depth issues at center though.

I'd do that even if the 2nd was a 1st. And I think the B's would be more tempted if Arkipov wasn't included

We would still make that trade, even if it was to pawn him off to a Detroit or Colorado. Imagine a superstar in Nashville.......what would we do?!?!

I'd do it for Legwand and Arkhi., but I want to keep Upshall and my pick.

Not to sound mean, but that deal is horrible.
