Definitely would not count on that. I'm certain that they've done their homework they know where he's at, but I can't see how him missing a few weeks to a month would be a deal breaker.

This is why I don't think they care much if he misses the start. The fact of the matter is they got him at a great price because of his injury history and the uncertainly concerning his current injury. The potential that he misses the start or a significant portion of the season just big part of why he was available at that price.

I don't think this move was purely cap motivated on the Washington end. Fehr has struggled with injuries and has often found himself in Boudreau's dog house. Trading for Brouwer and signing Ward made moving Fehr inevitable.

Just to be clear, I think it's a great risk to take and I love the move. But I also think it's very important that fans don't lose sight of why this trade was possible. Eric could come in and score 20 goals, he could just as easily miss 40 games or play 60 poorly because he's playing through a sever injury.

I think he can score even more than 20.

His ice time was limited in Washington due to Ovetchkin et al playing in front of him.

Really skilled player w/ a great wrist shot....hopefully Fehr can stay healthy. He was a beast to watch with the Wheat Kings and I'd love for him to show even part of that with the Jets.

Yeah...getting Eric Fehr for a 4th and an ECHLer is better than giving Scottie Upshall $3.5M.

Nice pickup. Fehr maybe isn't an ideal top 6 winger at this point, but he's always had that hint of scoring upside that has gone untapped (2009-10 being the closest to realizing it). At least that's what I've always felt, having watched him with the Wheat Kings back in the day. Now all we need is Ryan Stone and Lance Monych

Yea he comes at a pretty good price at $2.2M and hes an RFA next year so we will have another chance to sign him long term if he works out this year.

Lets compare players.....

Player A-6'3 230lbs. 26 years old. 14 g, 39pts 80gp.
Player B-6'4 212lbs. 25 years old. 10g, 20pts 52gp.

Which would you rather have?

I'll take Eric Fehr over Anthony Stewart.

Fehr's overall package is more imposing than Stewart -- who is a useful player, but doesn't have much upside left in his game. If Fehr can get healthy, he could easily put up 25-20-45 like numbers.

Don't forget to mention that Fehr has more potential, has hit 21 goals with limited icetime and has always been a hard worker. Stewart has been known as lazy, and took advantage of a weak team and got a lot of icetime because of the team's lack of depth. The rest of Stewarts pro career was basically in the AHL.

For some reason I was thinking this the whole time. But Fehr SHOULD be an upgrade over Stewart.

I don't think Fehr is better than Anthony Stewart. Stewart did more with less last season, and this team could have had him without giving up a prospect and a draft pick. TNSE could have gone out and grabbed a Michael Ryder type player, but instead they chose to sit on their hands. They're signing a bunch of marginal NHL players/Career AHLers from the area when all they really needed to do was bring in a top 6 RW to get this team in the playoffs.

We'll have to agree to disagree, I think many people feel that Fehr upside is much higher than Stewarts. And as far as what they gave up to acquire him? I would do this trade everytime.

Excellent. ****ing excellent.

I wasn't a fan of letting Stewart walk, but it wasnt a big deal, Fehr and Gregoire ought to fit in nicely over the long haul.

No, I don't. I'm not drinking the TNSE Kool Aid. I got to see a full season of Stewart last year, and a good bit of Fehr since he's a divisional opponent. I just don't see how Fehr is an upgrade over Stewart at all. Fehr isn't the Top 6 RW this team needs.

More with less doesn't matter in Stewart's context. Stewart is a player that would not be on any current playoff teams. What about Fehr's 20 goal season? He didn't have much help/icetime in doing that either. Throw in the fact that the consensus is that he has more potential in general... Fehr>Stewart.

Michael Ryder is not worth the 3.5 million he got from the Stars.

So we agree Fehr isn't the RW we were looking for either? More or less Stewart's replacement and might be a little better. It'll be interesting to see who puts up better numbers next year.

As of now, I don't think either player is a legitimate top-6er.

But, I do feel, and have always felt that Fehr can become a very reliable 2nd line RW. I've always been rather partial to a Fehr -- he's a big guy who can skate, and has a blistering snap shot.

If he can move past his injury issues -- there's a good chance he fufills his potential. I thnk that Stewart's numbers are the product of getting spoonfed icetime on a bad team. Fehr put up 21 goals getting about 12-13 minutes a game in 09-10.
