Mentions that CBJ may be interested in Del Zotto. Also mentions that Tyutin and possibly Filatov could be offered. I don't know how much of this is just Jim Matheson speculating as opposed to what he has actually heard....
But assuming there is something there, is this a good trade?
Filatov has a ciris now but where is written that it will be always as he knows play we saw in his first game. No, I would not trade Filatov it would be a big stupidity. We need shooter and from nikita will be a shooter soon. He is going get his confidence in Falcons back!
Ťjutin has begun play good he is a good defensman.
IMO we need not buy defensman first we give a chance Moore, Savard or Goloubef on PP. Besides not only defensmen are problems in PP neither Lindstrom would not help us. Simply, forwards have not clear conscience.
I respect your disagreement - that's what this board is for.
I'm sticking to my comments though. I have zero confidence in Tyutin and it's clear, in my humble opinion, that Filatov is simply not working out for us. Perhaps that's a shortsighted point of view but...
MDZ was a recent healthy scratch, but he isn't going anywhere, IMO. I'm not aware of how the NYR would even try to replace him. Sort of why there aren't tons of puck moving defensemen available, even though our fans seem to think it's as easy as picking one up at Sam's Club.
I'd love to see it happen, though, if the price were right. One tweet mentioned Mason+Filatov for MDZ. There'd have to be a pick coming back, and even then, I don't see how we could do it with no 2nd NHL quality goaltender in the organization. If they were to pull off getting Boucher, Huet or Nabokov, that would obviously make it possible.
Not sure how I feel about moving Steve, but something's gotta give eventually.

like i somewhat sarcastically said on the trade board...lets just gift wrap it all up for xmas
Tyutin, Hedja, Filatov, and a pick
MDZ and Roszival
My god, never Rozsíval. Only when I hear this name I have shiver, this man would never help us.
This trade would be total stupid, a harsh bargain.
What we need to defense is a moving, speed defensman with a good defense and experiences. Not a young player we have enought of them. Beisdes I prefer to trade Klesla or Commie. You are excited from they but see how they play when speeder team will come here. Where is Rusty "the wall" Klesla? Or Commie?
Besides we trade Filatov in a harsh bargain he will begin to play with his potential and what for us? Eyes for crying.
