  1. why does everyone want to dump AA? He's the best prospect forward we've had since...well, more prospects than you can imagine! He stays...
  2. AA for nobody...not Jones, not OEL, not Trouba, not Subban, not Weber. AA is your future #1C, he has the numbers, he has the speed, he has the brains, he even has the corsi (for you analytics guys.) I will leave this here as well: ...nuff said.
  3. For those of you saying you'd hate to see Smith go somewhere and excel like Schultz, would you rather AA get dealt somewhere and see him become a superstar? Larkin, AA, Mantha.....UN.TOUCH.ABLE If Holland deals any of them...ugh!
  4. This quote alone convinces me, NO trade for Trouba. If Holland trades this guy, he has lost his marbles...he won't even be allowed in the tire store to kick them anymore!
  5. Simple, if Holland opts to re-sign Smith over AA, he must die....figuratively.
  6. trading Smith and Tatar now does nothing to help the cap next season. Besides keep them off of it. Their salaries are not on next years cap, so we still only have $6.1Mish even if they're traded. Bottom line is, if Holland wants to re-sign Tatar, he must dump Nyquist, if he want to re-sign Smith, he must dump Ericsson somehow and LTIR Kronwall. If not, there is no reason to even think he will acquire a #1 defender. Holland f***ed this team up....anyone else still think Helm was a great deal? I said it when it happened, not that he was not worth it on the market, but to this team, the cap space and roster spot was worth more...Same with Glenny. Holland is going to f*** this team more and we are going to end up losing players off our NHL roster to inferior ones. IMO, XO and Jensen are higher priorities than Smth....but all three should be here over Ericsson.
  7. Of course NBC Sports screws up an article about hockey. He says Wings haven't been Sellers in about a quarter of a DECADE. Only 2.5yrs, eh?
  8. Very disappointed that they pulled the goalie with 2:33 left and couldn't get a shot on goal until .36 left. Larkin is not a bust, but he cannot be in the bottom 6. That's coaches fault.
  9. I wouldn't be surprised....Kyle Quincey comes to mind...way too much money for him, soon well have another $4M plus defender for multiple years.
  10. Well he's not excelling here. Just like eaves, he just needs to find the right fit. Here is not it...
  11. Useless to bring Eaves back and use him in a bottom 6 role again...but I know you are being sarcastic. Why not add Hudler in there as well! to DAL : Larkin and 1st round pick to DET : Eaves, Hudler +5
  12. Seems Anaheim is looking to move a defender, but it's not Fowler. http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/ana170220.html If they're able to do this, it sure lesson's their burden come expansion draft...
  13. No. Player Player Info. Potential Suitors 1 Kevin Shattenkirk, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $4,250,000 Age: 28 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded All signs point to Blues trading Shattenkirk by the deadline. They want a current NHL player or top prospect and a high draft pick. 2 Martin Hanzal, C/LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $3,100,000 Age: 29 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded If they haven't signed a contract extension by now, it's not going to happen unless Arizona steps up, which means Hanzal's moving by the deadline. 3 Thomas Vanek, LW/RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $2,600,000 Age: 33 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Primarily due to the expansion draft, it's unlikely Vanek signs an extension in Detroit, making a trade prior to March 1 expected. 4 Matt Duchene, C/LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $6,000,000 Age: 26 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Like with Landeskog, moving Duchene mid-season is not a must for the Avs. Barring a team's willingness to really step up, this is likely an off-season trade. 5 Gabriel Landeskog, LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,571,429 Age: 24 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded The Avs don't have to trade Landeskog this season, they can wait until the summer, but that won't stop teams from trying to make a move now. 6 Radim Vrbata, RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $1,000,000 Age: 35 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Vrbata's having a very good year, all things considered, and teams will pay a higher price for his tiny salary cap hit. 7 Ben Bishop, G 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,950,000 Age: 30 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Bishop's future still does not appear to be in Tampa and if he's not dealt by March 1, his rights could be moved in June for a much smaller price. 8 Patrik Berglund, C/LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $3,700,000 Age: 28 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded The Blues could move Berglund if they can't sign him to an extension. He's a UFA-to-be, and the Blues are in an odd state where moving him makes sense. 9 Patrick Eaves, LW/RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $1,000,000 Age: 32 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Eaves is among the UFA-to-be leaders in goals and points and the Stars will be asking for a high return for Eaves, who's having a career year. 10 Marc-Andre Fleury, G 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,750,000 Age: 32 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Moving Fleury all comes down to the offer and whether the Pens feel they're better dealing him or keeping him for another Cup run and going from there. 11 Michael Stone, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $4,000,000 Age: 26 Status: Traded to Calgary The Coyotes are taking calls on just about everyone, including Stone, who could bring Arizona a solid return before the trade deadline. 12 Shane Doan, RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $3,876,134 Age: 40 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded By all accounts, Doan is willing to move for a few months to a Stanley Cup contender if the right opportunity presented itself. 13 Patrick Sharp, LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,900,000 Age: 35 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Sharp's salary cap hit is a concern for some teams, the Stars would have to cover a chunk, but he's still a solid addition for a contender looking for extra scoring. 14 Jarome Iginla, RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,333,333 Age: 39 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Iginla will be dealt before the deadline to a top contender, but it all comes down to price and which team wants his veteran presence the most. 15 Brendan Smith, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $2,750,000 Age: 27 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Smith's an affordable asset for a team in need of help on the backend. His cap hit is attractive and once healthy, is likely on the move by March 1. 16 Alexandre Burrows, LW/RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $4,500,000 Age: 35 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Burrows has a say in where he ends up, but trade talks won't pick up until the Canucks have a better indication on their season. 17 Johnny Oduya, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $3,750,000 Age: 35 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Add Oduya to the list of Stars' players who could move by March 1's deadline. His playoff experience is very valuable to Stanley Cup contenders. 18 Brian Boyle, LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $2,000,000 Age: 32 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded If the Bolts feel they can't re-sign Boyle, moving him to a contender appears to be a realistic move, and there will be plenty of teams lining up for his services. 19 Jordan Eberle, RW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $6,000,000 Age: 26 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded It's trade deadline season, so naturally Eberle's name is out there. We're not anticipating a trade by the deadline, but he's being talked about. 20 James van Riemsdyk, LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $4,250,000 Age: 27 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded The Leafs, as it's been well publicized, aren't moving JVR unless they deal him for a young, top-pair defenseman. So, there you go. 21 P-A Parenteau, RW/LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $1,250,000 Age: 33 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Parenteau's had a solid season with New Jersey, and if the Devils enter sell-mode, he'll command a solid return from a contender in need of depth scoring. 22 Valtteri Filppula, C/LW 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $5,000,000 Age: 32 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Tampa is trying to create cap space for next season to sign some of the pending RFAs and Filppula could be the odd man out. He's being shopped. - 23 Ron Hainsey, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $2,833,333 Age: 35 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Hainsey, who has a 15-team no-trade list, comes with an affordable cap hit. He's an attractive option for teams looking to strengthen their blueline. 24 Dmitry Kulikov, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $4,333,333 Age: 26 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded It sounds like the Sabres are leaning towards trading Kulikov by the deadline, but there's also a chance they try to sign him to a contract extension. - 25 Cody Franson, D 2016-17 Salary Cap Hit: $3,325,000 Age: 29 Status: Available, Not Yet Traded Franson is in the final year of his contract and teams in need of solid depth on the blueline will be knocking on Buffalo's door. Here is the link to that table above. http://www.thefourthperiod.com/trade_deadline/top25/index.html
  14. I absolutely do not trade AA, Mantha or Larkin. They are our future...if that is what it takes to get Trouba, then I keep the pick. Like I said in a previous thread, I'm kind of warming up to Liljegren. I draft him, then go hard after Shattenkirk. Then I absolutely buy out Ericsson if I can't deal him. DD - Shattenkirk Liljegren - Green XO - Jensen Kronner being in and out due to injury. I know Sproul is missing, I'm hoping Kronwall goes LTIR if he cannot play to what we need.
  15. If Holland was able to get a 1st for Smith, I'd worship the ground he levitates above! a 3rd is most likely, even from PITT. I liked him and Jensen together, but absolutely he will command more than a #5/6 on this team would be worth. Just like Kick sayzzz, We have 3-4 very good #5/6 players that will make a lot less money for a long time. Even at Smith's current salary, it's too much for a 5/6. The goal should be acquiring that #1 whether it be a trade or even if they goes balls out for Shattenkirk come July. We must buyout Ericsson if we cannot deal him or if Vegas doesn't draft him. Too much money for a fringe #4. The buyout is not very expensive nor does it have a bad cap hit. Kronwall needs to LTIR.
