Anyone you need from Pittsburgh

What would it take to get Filatov out of Columbus and in Pittsburgh?

I would want Letang but not sure if he is considered a untouchable. We also have to many players on hte backend so it would have to be something like....

Filatov + defensemen(perhaps Tyutin)
for
Letang + ?(pick or some kind of prospect, with Huselius and Moreau coming back in the future, we don't have any more room for forwards)

No, Letang has been our best d-man this year in a variety of ways.

It'd have to be based around Goligoski and a defensive prospect if you don't want any forwards.

(Not saying the Jackets would be cool with that, just saying that's what it would be based around on the Pens side imo)

As stated above, yeah it will need to be starting from Goligoski as Letang isnt going anywhere...hmm....so basically as far as trading partners we dont mesh well

If I recall, alot of the members here didn't want to trade Filatov if it meant Goligoski was a main piece coming back. Then again, we aren't the GM's so who knows. He doesn't seem to be that bad but I don't think he can be "The Guy" that gives us the offensive defensemen we've been looking for. Looks like he would fall into a slightly better Stralman and be the same as Russell.


Eric Tangradi is ranked number 1 in your prospects ranking list on here. Is he actually good? Filatov for Tangradi? The fans on here wouldn't like it though because they prefer a established player and don't want to go back to the rebuild mode. Plus I would guess Filatov has more potential but I know nothing about Tangradi.

We wouldnt like Tangradi for Filatov because Filatov has so much more upside.

Filatov + for Letang or GTFO.

Pittsburgh makes a poor trading partner with most teams because their resources are consolidated in a very small amount of players (Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Letang, and Fleury). The others are fluff that we can find elsewhere.

Not trading our best d-man for a kid who hasn't proven much.

I love Filatov, but he isn't worth even close to Letang. It would have to be a huge plus from Columbus.

It's either Goligoski + prospect or nothing. I'm thinking nothing.

I don't see them trading Letang unless something awesome is coming back. Those are nice pieces, but they aren't proven. Pens need proven talent, they're a win now team. You don't win by trading your best players for prospects.

Goligoski is nothing special though. He's 24 and is the type of offensively minded defenseman that we could get from almost any team.

We aren't looking to trade for "Player X +..." we are looking to trade our "Player X +..." for another team's "Player Y" where Y is better than X. I.E. We are looking to package players + picks for valuable players from other teams. Don't have a more valuable player you're willing to give up for a bunch of less valuable players or picks? Then don't bother creating a thread.

Very true. How about....Filatov + Juice + Hejda...I dont even think Columbus can afford to do that...would be a huge hole in their top 6...unless they went out and got Michalek with their 1st round pick...ok im done grasping for trade offers

Blue Jackets fans(and yes I know your one of them) would say hell no but something like....

Filatov + Umberger
for
Letang + 2nd round pick

or no room for 2 forwards/we need a defensemen coming back type of situation?
I really don't want to give up Umberger though.

I like the idea bc Im sure they'd be very interested in Umby. But I dont think they do it straight up for Letang let alone the 2nd. Add a solid d man going back like Hejda and they might be forced to pull the trigger. Idk is Letang THAT valuable? I dont watch many Pens games. Hes their best d man but what is he in the league.

I didn't create the thread. And I've also been one of the guys saying that Filatov for Goligoski wouldn't work from the Jackets perspective.

But Filatov isn't going to fetch anyone of Letang's status without another valuable piece. I don't even think I'd trade Letang for Umberger and Filatov. It'd have to be Voracek and Filatov. Letang is playing at #1 d-man level.

Pitt does have Z and Martin....I think they would consider this bc of their depth in defense. Not to mention Orpik and Goligoski. Just think Filatov on a line with Crosby or Malkin...hella dangerous.

Boys, Stamkos plays enought bad 1/2 his first season (and he played with better players than Umby nad Vermy). And now? Filatov has talent he is more talented than Letang. We must give him a time. We would a big mistake if we would trade him only for not good play now.

I believe for a short time it will be another Filatov, sniper, as we wait for him.

Problem with Filatov is he isnt going to let us 'give him time'. Right now he's still not looking ready for the NHL, and he wont let us give him time by letting him play in the AHL. I agree that Filatov "MAY" be great, but he's not right now and needs top minutes in the A to continue to build some confidence, but we know that story
