Guerin to Atlanta proposal

Atlanta gives up this years second rounder and next years 3rd plus kurtis foster. Dallas eats 2mill a year and we get guerin.

All depends on how badly Dallas wants to get rid of his salary. I'm guessing no on that trade.

Something like this actually seems feasible to me, although you might have to kick Dallas' contribution up to $9M.

With the Stars paying a fair chunk of his contract, Guerin will probably get an equal package in return as what Lang got, maybe slightly less. This isn't enticing for the Stars at all, there's nothing in there with good value. I rather deal Guerin for Amonte or another overpriced veteran than receive such .. well.. trash is a good word I guess..

I'd take that deal in a second. It's way more than I expect Guerin to garner.

Two draft picks and a player who in a year or so can quarterback your powerplay is trash. I'm a garbage man and i know what trash is, that is not trash. Also, guerin is no lang, plus when lang was traded he was still in the hunt for the scoring race on pace for a career season and being traded to a vetren laden team. Guerin was recently injured and is moving toward the past his prime years.

not to mention Lang was dealt PRE CBA, meaning the wings could make one last push, but POST CBA, it may not be of any value for a club to deal anything worth while to get a guy who could take a big hit against the cap. If a deal goes down don't expect it to be done before the CBA is a whole lot clearer

Awesome!

I would love that Dallas picks up a little more salary and would offer our 1st as compensation. The question is, how much of Guerin's salaries payed by the Stars does equal Atlanta 1st (10th overall) pick in 2004?

Would Guerin even fit on the team?

Disagree. A 2nd and third rounder and a decent prospect is a lot to pay for a salary dump of this nature.

The deal is more than fair. In fact, it is overpayment by Atlanta.

I agree. This isn't "your dad's NHL". With very rare exception, a player's trade value is supremely compromised the moment he signs a significant ($/years) contact.

It is instructive for fans of teams to recognize that if a productive player like Guerin is put on the trade block, he is being moved for virtually one reason, and one reason only: to clear out payroll space. As such, the "traditional" way of evaluating trades - getting player value for player value - is out the window.

Is Bill Guerin at, say $3-4M a year, worth more than a couple of picks and a prospect? Absolutely. (Even in the current economic environment.)

At approx. $9M a season? He's a busine$$ liability. (His on-ice production has nothing to do with it.)

Atlanta isn't going to get a high priced player with possible raises to Kovalchuck and Heatley coming up.

Not only that, but they also have plenty of other potentially pricey RFA's like Marc Savard and Andy Sutton.

While I expect the Thrashers to add some players, I do not expect them to grab someone in Guerin's price range.

Foget what you want Attlant to give up, just explain why on earth would Attlanta want a over paid under producing player on their team that cost them 6.5 million dollars ?
Waiting for this answer and It has to be good.

Hmm yeah, no thanks for me. I guess Guerin would be playing with Kovalchuk, and I could think of a lot of cheaper, more effective free agents to play with Ilya. A playmaking center would do more imo.

I agree with Trotts and Darth. Guerin's salary is just a huge weight. $9m buys a lot ie if Dallas could trade Guerin + 2/y for those Foster, 2nd & 3rd, they could then go out and sign Murray. Murray+Foster+2nd+3rd and they are still saving money over Guerin, even after picking up $2-3m/y. If Dallas could just walk away from Guerin they probably would, the only thing that potentially gives Guerin any value at all is Dallas eating salary.

Lehtonen locks up goal, Kovalchuk + Heatley + Savard etc up front provide scoring. I'd think Atlanta might do better with a few more Dmen/and or lesser vets for the $6-8m Guerin might cost them.
