The Fourth Period

According to Newsday, the Wings and San Jose are the current front runners. I'd love to see this guy here. I say do it Kenny! (for the right price of course) God, I hope he doesn't go to Nashville.

And it says that its a package of picks and prospects, while the WIngs said they will now only be trading for picks and prospects....I think I may have my wish come true this deadline....

I am excited to see what happens here. Supposedly we dropped out of the Guerin sweepstakes so this is it its Blake or nothing. (In terms of star player)
QUOTE
- It's believed the Ducks and Sharks are battling for Bill Guerin, with both clubs willing to part with a top young player and a first rounder. The Senators and Wings are apparently out of the running as they're unwilling to pay the asking price.

From Spectors

I think it will take a prospect and 3 picks or 2 prospects and 2 picks (San Jose already traded their first rounder so we have an edge on them there)....


A little steep in terms of price but the market is crazy and I like our chances better with Blake.

I would not mind Blake, but he should not be the first guy on our list.

Would you rather acquire Blake for prospects and picks or do nothing?

Blake is obviously not most people's idea of the perfect addition but you can't argue with the guy's talent and speed. He'd come in here and basically make Draper look slow IMO.

I'm not one for bringing in more little guys but when they are as talented as Danny Briere or Drury or St.Louis or Blake, its almost a no-brainer. He's scored over 20 goals 4 years in a row and this year he's going to score probably close to 40 goals (he's at 29 right now). We need a scoring winger. He may not be a bruising scoring winger but still...
Being a mod doesn't make you special.

Yeah, he certainly wouldn't make us worse. I can think of players I'd rather have come on board, but adding a goal scoring winger isn't exactly troublesome.

I guess this team could do with an injection of pace. But his size and lack of production during the playoffs concerns me a little.

Jason Blake, while I wouldn't mind of having him over Calder, probably won't be coming here since we traded for Calder, IMO.

Wolfe, a Wing fan since the Cheli trade!

Lebda and Kronner, Wings for at least a few years, thank God!
I do feel sorry for Kronner this year though, cuz he's paired with the jackass named Lilja.

Lilja is a disease.

Lang's finally gone, hopefully Lilja's next!

I hope this happens. We do need another scorer but if it is at all possible i would much rather see Billy G. in the winged wheel. I guess that is pretty much a long shot at this point.

I want to see one more move and then i sleep a little bit easier tonight.

Thanks TeeMan
