I'd love for the Sens to get him in a soft trade. Kuba for Malone straight up.

I've always assumed rumours were based on someone in the know leaking something. Maybe my opinion is wrong. ??

The Leafs would love to add him but only if Lupul was going back the other way making the deal hard to make

There have been rumors of us trying to move him since we signed him. Hes not leaving anytime soon, not until Connolly/Ashton/Panik pan out.

i dont think malone gets traded, but eric fehr was just traded after having shoulder surgery himself where he may not be ready to start the season. so, the surgery wouldnt keep malone from being traded.

If this rumor is true lighting fans what would you be happy with as a return?

and to everybody else who would be interested?
The why is because supposedly they've lost money even though they went deep into the playoffs. Ownership with deep pockets doesn't mean he's going to throw it away every year. They need to balance their budget.

You can't see Dallas letting Brad Richards walk or Anaheim trading Joffrey Lupul & Jake Gardiner to Toronto for Francois Beauchemin but player salary and how much money a team is making has a huge influence on their decisions, not just their performance.

I want Malone in Montreal!!!

Malone is exactly what we need to play with the likes of Cole, Pacioretty and others on the top nine.

To Montreal: Ryan Malone + Carter Ashton
To Tampa Bay: Jaroslav Spacek + Yannick Weber + David Desharnais

Sign Madden and Hannan to play for one season

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Cole
Pacioretty - Gomez - Gionta
Malone - Eller - Kostitsyn
White - Madden - Moen
Darche

Markov - Gorges
Gill - Subban
Hannan - Yemelin
Diaz

Price
Budaj


Tampa Bay need young puck moving offensive minded defenseman and young centres with skill and speed, Montreal needs a power forward with grit that performs in the playoffs and size on the wings so both teams win in this situation.

Imagine a line in the future of: Pacioretty - Eller - Ashton

Malone AND Ashton? Even if we did decide to trade Malone we would only be moving him so Ashton can take his place.

Then rasie ticket prices, do something you got a great team in tampa trading a big peice of it when the team is on the verg of possibly winning a championship just seems like a bad idea.

Thats not to say I wouldn't take him on my team but if I'm TB I'm doing everything I can to keep that team together.

He was in the rumors around the draft was he not? Maybe now that they have Stamkos signed they realize how much salary they need to move going foward. The thing I find interesting is that after this year, Malone's salary drops to 3mil, 2.5mil and 2.5mil. Seems like a perfect amount of salary for a team that may have money issues.

That's not always the answer. It might be, but there is no gurantee.

Vinik is taking some suites out of the forum to improve the sightlines of some of the seats, hardly seems like he is squeezing every penny, also the original $25 million set aside for renovations has now become $40 million.

Obviously long term he cant always lose money, but I think he sees it as inevitable short term.

Generally for a trade to happen it has to be good for both sides, SFY gets bent over in this proposal why would he do it?

It's not like Tampa could just lie to other teams about Malone's health if they're trying to trade him. He would still have to pass a physical.

The recent book went into details about the early days at ESPN, where it was constant parties, drugs, booze, and other tales.

This was of course a long time ago, and many other large companies have similar stories.

I have no idea why this would be relevant at all to an NHL rumor today, really odd place to bring it up. I think its well knwon that ESPN is the place to go for lots of sports news, but the NHL isn't one of them.

When I wrote my original post, I'd only heard out 4-6 months. So I guess its not major surgery at all? That's good news for him.

a rumour can be generated by actual occuring or occured events, saying the Leafs are interested in any way shape or form is not only wrong but without merit(unfounded). you'd have to ask yourself why at this point in time would the Leafs be interested. If you answered honestly you'd realize they wouldn't be in the least...therefore Malone to Leafs = wrong

It could be said that he's on the block, but with that NMC and current health issues it makes it highly unlikely

West Islander is extremely dense.


LOL at people who would only offer extreme crap in Kuba, or lesser crap in Lupul for Malone.

Lupul was only 2-3 mill, I'd understand, but his caphit is almost the same as Malone's.

Should you give up the farm for Malone ? No, but at least something decent.

Malone
for
Komisarek
3rd Round Pick

Ryan Malone - Tim Connolly - Phil Kessel
Clarke MacArthur - Mikhail Grabovski - Nikolai Kulemin
Nazem Kadri - Matthew Lombardi - Joffrey Lupul
Mike Brown - Tyler Bozak - Colby Armstrong
Orr/Dupuis

Keith Aulie - Dion Phaneuf
JM Liles - Luke Schenn
Carl Gunnarsson - Cody Franson

James Reimer

Sick team regardless of Armstrong being an overpaid 4th liner, but this 4th line could play 3rd line minutes.

I wouldn't say 'sick' but definitely below average.
