wings are always looking for guys who can come in and contribute and be a bargain for the team like cleary/hasek/samuelsson ........which players do you guys think that can come here at a reasonable price and be a good pick up ??
heres my picks .....
all depends if toronto wants him back but i think he can be had for say 2.250 per for 2 yrs ?? he had 20 goals this year , he had a 40 goal season and two 30 goal season before and if we put him with datsyuk or zetterberg i think he can be a real goal scoring threat that we need ....heres some info ...
Height: 6'1 Weight: 195 lbs
Shoots: Right NHL Seasons: 10
AssetsHas great hands and a lethal shot. Hits everything in sight. Excels at taking face-offs. Knows where to be to score goals.
FlawsCould still improve his defensive game. Must show more discipline on and off the ice. Takes too many nights off. Career potentialFirst line winger.
2- eric lindros
i know ill get laughed for this one but i think he can be had for maybe 1 million, hes a big big body that we can really really use , adding him along with bertuzzi if he comes back will give us two big bodys, i know lindros had some injuries last season but it wasnt any headshots so thats a good thing , and i know if he plays along datsyuk or zetterberg he can be a good player for us offensivly .....heres some stats
Height: 6'4 Weight: 245 lbs.
Shoots: Right NHL Seasons: 12
Scouting ReportAssetsUnleashes a lethal shot whenever parked in the slot area. Skates very well for a big man. Can still intimidate with his power/speed package when healthy.
FlawsSkates with his head down constantly, which has landed him in serious concussion trouble. Doesn't own great hockey sense. Career potentialSecond line center.
3- joffrey lupul
ok hes not a free agent but i heard alot of rumors the oilers wanted to trade him cause they were dissapointed with him last season , i think its a real dumb move to get rid of him and as much as i like hudler i think babcock doesnt care for him for some reason , hudler had similiar goals to lupul in almost no ice time so i think if we traded hudler along with meech ( oilers need help on defence) who wont play most likely and i heard he's gotta clear waivers and we all know that wont happen,lupul had 16 goals last season and 28 the season before that , if he plays with dastyuk or zetterberg he can get 30+ ...heres some stats...
Height: 6'1 Weight: 200 lbs.
Shoots: Right NHL Seasons: 2
Scouting ReportAssetsHas a goal-scorer's mentality, creative instincts and unlimited offensive potential. He can line up either on the wing or at center.
FlawsMust get stronger and play a better game in the defensive zone. Isn't a great skater, which limits his overall potential. Career potentialTop six winger.
thats it guys , what are your thoughts ????? would you take any of those players ? who do you think can be a bargain ??
Lupul might be okay because he is very talented and very young. Had a dismal year this season but surrounded by winners he could blossom again. Small step back for him this season, he was expected to do much more. All that being said, I don't think Edmonton would give up Lupul for anything less than a 1st round pick despite this past season. And you know we ain't dealin a 1st rounder for Lupul. Lupul a UFA? I can't imagine he is.
Jeff Oneill. IMO one of the most overrated players i've ever seen. Has a terrible work ethic, can't bring it every night and dissapears for long stretches. We'd get rid of Lang only to replace him with O'Neill. He can score some but the night in, night out effort tells me to avoid him.
Lindros, that ship has sailed. I took a chance on him in my fantasy league this year and eventually I dumped him. The guy is more brittle than 400 year old parchment.
