Oduya? Yeah, no thanks. He's been dreadful for Atlanta this year. Wouldn't trade more than a 4th rounder for him.

Wideman pleeeeeeeaaaaase

Be my guest. I've said it many times on this board before, I hope Howson makes me look bad. I just have pretty much run out of confidence and the people I feel the worst for are the players who are currently busting their ***** like they did to get into the playoffs two years ago.

I'd like in order:

Wideman
Oduya
Liles
Smid

But I'd really like: Pronger + Timonen

That isn't what he'll say. If things transpire the way you suggest (very possible, IMO) it will be more along the lines of "nothing presented itself in a way that we felt offered value to our organ-eye-zation."

And while of course value to our organ-eye-zation is in the eye of the beholder, it will not necessarily have been wrong.

I wouldn't mind Oduya, if for no other reason than he's got one of my favorite names in the league.

Well if the rumors I've been hearing are true, that would be accurate. Toronto has walked away from Liles over price, supposedly they can't put together a deal for Weiss over price. We've heard about Brass or Voracek for Liles, the rumors around Rangers/Richards are ridiculous. I've heard some insane requests for Hemsky and Penner today too. (Hemsky for Spezza!), Hemsky for Philly 1st and Kadri

LMAO at recent Porty tweet:

Quote:
Doug MacLean says 2 trades w Dallas fell through when he was GM of #CBJ:Nik Zherdev for Brenden Morrow and Alexandre Picard for Jason Arnott
And then there was near miss on Parma native Danny Fritsche for Zubov.

And of course, we're aware that Detroit offered to trade their entire roster for the Blue Jackets roster, but he said "no way."

Why does MacLean continue to throw his BS out there? Those trades would represent that at some time during his reign we were buyers and Dallas was sellers. It's not even a farce that can be reasonably believed.

I realize that, but as I said earlier, Howson is now getting into bidding war territory and we know his track record with that.

I just want to point out that it is probably a sellers market and the pickings are slim. More movement has to take place before we can establish the true value of what is available. I think Howson is willing to over pay some but not get taken to the cleaners.

You don't want a guy that you claim is "dreadful" and you then name Wideman? What is your definition of dreadful?

Where exactly did the Brass/Voracek for Liles rumor come up? I haven't seen any links.

To this day, I have zero idea what you use for criteria for your analysis of players.

its amazing how many player trades and waiver pick ups and ufa have been made with all the other teams ahead of us since last trade deadline and howson has sat still. i'm not saying make a trade for trades sake but its time to make a move and improve this team. sitting still for a whole year isnt cutting it for me.

Based on the games I've seen and various fan reactions. Atlanta fans seem to want to get rid of Oduya for whatever, but Florida fans don't seem to complain about Wideman much. He's also got 9 goals and a RH shot, and right-handed scoring from the blueline is something we've needed for a long time. I don't understand why you created a confrontation over a pretty simple situation.

Wideman kinda sucks defensively, but so does Liles and everyone has a hardon for him. He makes less, is younger, probably cheaper to acquire, is right-handed, has a better point shot.....

TSN Tradecenter guys just praising the coaching staff for CBJ, Pierre Mac to be exact. One of them asked if Howson was feeling the heat, Mactavish gave a vanilla answer saying all GMs are feeling it.

Columbus source wouldn't confirm, but Blue Jackets believed to have interest in Isles D-man Radek Martinek.

Also don't see what Martinek brings. If he and Oduya are the only guys that we could reasonably get, I'd rather just stand pat.

Probably just because Portzline mentioned his name in the blog this morning.
