Add in Grabovski to help produce some offense on our team!

Only way a trade involving any of the big 3 can be justified would be to bring back a top 10 #1 defender which is not going to happen.

Honestly the ducks are playing good and if we had a 3rd line we would be so much better.

Toronto has lots of 3rd line players. Ex. See all 12 forwards.

Well 1, these aren't trade proposals on his site, and two, he's directly profiting from website traffic due to his 'trade proposals', which neither you nor I (nor anyone else) can say the same for.

Don't know if the Ducks would make that deal but right now the Habs aren't in a position to trade Subban. Not now and maybe not in the future cause if Markov is done as a Hab being that he is an UFA, Subban will be the replacement and won't be going anywhere

Yeah he know how to make $$$. It's always a useless post ended by "I'm hearing the [Habs or/and Leaf] are talking to [Team X]. I'm meeting with a source, I'll give you an update later."

Then after 5 hours of millions of clicks : "The Habs are still in talks with Vancouver for Bieksa"

If the Ducks were like 13th in the West (and not expected to finish much higher than that), I could sorta see the point for them to listen to any offer the Habs would make for Visnovsky, but that's not gonna happen.

Anyways, two of those team (MTL and ANH) combines a 14-5-1 in their last 20 games. So I don't think they'll be looking to move key players.

TO might move key players, though.

Seriously that was your contribution to the thread?

anyways i was shocked at the toskala blake for giguere trade. so im not so sure if i would be surprised if the leafs did get someone big off the ducks not saying who though because there could be a lot of factors. I believe when lupul comes back his cap hit is 4.25 which i think will put anaheim at or above cap. which was part of the issue when they were deciding how much to sign Ryan for. kulemin has a good cap hit and is a capable top 6 forward especially if he had some solid teammates. also gunnerson has top 4 d potential. i think people underate toronto players as they dont excel as well when playing in to because ML are just not that good. probably why a lot of players who leave do better elsewhere.

I agree, I don't see Subban going anywhere for the foreseeable future, whether Markov's injury is serious or not.

The deal in terms of value is fair, in my opinion and I always felt that Bobby Ryan was a guy that the Habs have coveted and would want on their team.

There is no reason for it.
Can I ask a couple of sincere and legitimate questions? There is a prefix to the thread stating that it's Eklund. Why bother coming into the thread if you don't want to read it? Why should we ban him or anyone posting a topic about his rumours for those who are simply incapable to use a little bit of common sense and not open threads that they don't like?

Food for thoughts...

Good point.

From here on out, I believe -we as a whole- should not enter into any Eklund threads and they will slowly dissapate.

They wouldn't. Anaheim's prospect pool is geared toward replenishing the defense. With quite a few top caliber defensive prospects, that all play very different games. On the other hand, Anaheim's wing prospects really only have 1 top end goal scorer, Emerson Etem and he's quite a few years away.

Trading any one of the big 3 for defense actually opens up a much larger hole, since the Ducks prospects are heavy with defenders. This is the biggest reason why the Ducks won't trade any of the big 3, but people keep asking for them anyways.

I think/hope that Bob Murray is being patient with the defense, waiting for Fowler, Sbisa, Gardiner, Vatanen, Schultz and Clark to develop, while adding stopgaps via free agency. Basically you could equate it to the Kings trading Brown or Kopitar for defense when they knew that sooner or later Doughty and JJ + a number of their other defensive prospects were going to stabilize the defense for years to come. Now look at them, their patience has paid off and they are the top defensive team in the league.

I think eklund sucks,is usually wrong but i think both teams are probaly interested in cory perry because montreal is a smaller team and toronto is just weak with no guts at all within the top 6(minus versteeg)

to montreal:perry and a prospect dmen to the ducks,kositsyn,(excuse the spelling)Boyd and a pick of some sort

To tor perry,plus alot of false hope to the ducks,graboski,prospect(d`amigo) and someone like brad ross or cuputi

Wow those are both horrible. How about the ducks send Sexton to Montreal for Markov instead?

And yet I would wager a fair amount that Montreal would jump at the deal.
