Yeah i hate to agree..i think it will work itself out though. Burns wants to play here and Seabrook has the ammo of being on Canada's national team and winning a Stanley cup. I definitely think Burns will get around 6 mil but not more than that.

Or think about a kick-butt forward that can put the biscuit in the basket.

I wonder, with all the Toronto speculation regarding Clarke MacArthur not finalizing an extension with Burke to date, if Fletcher would have any interest? Toronto could afford a salary dump but it would come at a cost.

There's a lot less defensemen in the league that can do what Burns does, than scoring forwards. I'd rather keep Burns at anything less than $7m per than receiving a bundle of underwhelming assets in return.

With Boyes fetching a 2nd round pick you gotta think if we trade Kobasew it will be for a player since there is no way he's fetching a 2nd.

I think we should just stand pat, I don't see how we could make any move that will help the team without it hurting it equally.

Could live with seeing any of the following get traded: Kobasew, Barker, Gillies, Cuma(I realize he's injuried), Hackett, 3rd pick and beyond (2011), probably even James Sheppard and any prospect NOT named Granlund, Scandella, Zucker, Spurgeon or Kuemper

Boyes to Buffalo for a 2nd.

Jesus, I wish that was us. That is a very reasonable price for a guy who can put in 65 points and 25 goals.

Watching Tradecentre (don't know why, but I'm bored). It's more like Tradecentre featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs...

Have a feeling it's going to be EXTRA quiet today, if anything lots of little deals in the afternoon.

Justin Williams just signed a 4-year $14.6m deal (3.65m per year)...so that's one UFA target who's gone.

I was sort of secretly hoping for an Arnott addition for a reasonable price. But with Arnott's comments saying he more or less wouldn't waive to go to a bubble team, that's basically nil at this point. Seems he would only waive to go to an established playoff team.

--I hear the price for marginal centers is "stupid" right now, but the price often comes down at about 1:50 p.m., so we'll see if the Wild can upgrade its depth at center with Mikko Koivu still sidelined.
Russo

He goes on to mention names like Konopka, Arnott, Reasoner, Weiss, and a bit on Kobasew.

Trade deadlines are always so depressing. Either no moves, non-exciting moves, or exciting moves than end up biting you in the ass.

I didn't know where to put but holy ****, NOW I think we can officially forget Gui this season.

Yeah no getting Gui back will hurt, but hey, that's how it goes sometimes. We have played well all year without him.

I'm thinking we will just stand pat. I'd like to see a move because I like the excitement that it brings, but, I'd be okay if we just kept the roster intact. I like a lot of the guys on the team. Tonight's game is a big one.

Expecting Latendresse back this season wasn't all that reasonable to begin with in my opinion. Given his numerous surgeries in addition to the way he showed up to play this year, he has a long road to get back on the ice. Hopefully he'll be ready to play next year and come in with a better mindset.

Yeah it'd sure be nice to have that scoring ability in the lineup, but the team has played very well the last couple of months, they have to keep it going tonight. I doubt we see a trade today.
