For Gary Freakin Roberts:
QUOTE
Florida is looking for either centre Antoine Vermette or winger Patrick Eaves, along with Ottawa's top pick in 2007 in exchange for the 40-year-old Roberts.


QUOTE
The Senators have also held talks with the St. Louis about winger Bill Guerin, but the asking price there is the same: A young player who can help right away and a No. 1 pick or two No. 1 picks.

NHL insiders believe asking prices will go down as the deadline gets closer.

If anything, it should be Roberts and a pick for Vermette or Eaves.

Give it a couple days........

Those prices will come down drastically!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I'm having hard time coping with giving away any of our young guys, they all could be great.
Filppula is awesome, he just need to learn to hang on to the puck after being nudged.

No s***, what a joke.

My prediction? The prices will come crashing down on the 26th or 27th, as sellers realize that no team GM will smoke the amount of crack necessary to accede to stated rentals` costs, and that they'll that they will gain utter dick before the trade deadline and see their trade-deadline prospects become UFAs this summer.

The other rumor is Toronto would have to give up Alex Steen for Roberts. While Steen is in the midst of a sophmore slump like no other, he's definitly worth more than Roberts. Jacques Martin needs to really get his head checked if he thinks a 40 year old with injury problems will really land him young prospects like Steen or Patrick Eaves.

Price for Gary Roberts will definitely come down, however, I dont believe it will for Guerin. Tkachuk maybe a little bit. And why should it? They are easily the two most sought after guys, when push comes to shove somebody will put up. Theres nobody else out there who can be a difference maker like those 2, aside from Bertuzzi who's a huge risk.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

A team with young talent like Pittsburgh would probably take them up on that offer.

Craig Patrick might have actually done it. I don't know much about Ray Shero though.

Why? Pittsburgh is probably the one team that can give up draft picks and not even have it be a big deal to them. Theyre already loaded with young talent. A veteran gritty scorer like Guerin is exactly what they need.

(and a defenseman obviously!)

Two weeks ago the Toronto Sun reported that Florida was asking for a 2nd pick for Roberts,but would settle for a 3rd.
I started a thread stating he would be a valuable playoff rental for the price,but the majority scoffed at the notion.That may have been the steal of the season,if it were true.

It's not like their team's been built on great scouting. Crosby, Malkin, Staal are all top picks from tanking so completely and totally. What kinda stupid would they be to throw away the next generation on a team that probably isn't good enough to get there anyways?
