Any new news here or is Eklund drumming up interest in his site again?

well I don't think they are going to trade drapes considering he just signed a new deal. Maybe they will get grigs into the game and showcase him. If a deal were to go down it could be maybe a hudler/prospect for prospal or something like that. Prospal would fill our need for a second line center/top six everyone has been talking about.

eklund is full of crap ...... who the hell could tampa bay have to offer us that we'd want ???
realistically st louis , richards and lecavalier are going nowhere , prospal has 8 goals he's going no where as well , were fine with our defensemen , chris gratton at 6'3 220 pds might be the only guy we might want with an outside chance of getting him but i doubt theyd trade him

The only thing i can think of is since tampa has such bad goaltending they'd maybe take ozzie but i doubt the wings would trade him unless they decided one year playing 30 games in the nhl learning from the dominator before he becomes our starter next year might not be such a bad thing ( which i wouldnt mind) But again i dont see that happening. As i said eklund is full of crap lol

we got ericsson, quincey , meech ,kindl , and our last yrs #1 pick ..... we got tons of defensive prospects waiting , what this team needs is physical players who can also score , a nice power forward and sniper, defence is not a concern and with howard and larsson who i personally think will be our true number 1 in 2-3 yrs were good in goaltending as well

Gratton would be an awesome pick up imo. but i dont see anything going down with either team. just another Eklund Rumor, that has 0% chance of happening

Hudler, Filpula, Grigs and Sammy for St Louis and a pick.

Definately wont happen, but I'd do it. Give's us a potential 40-50 goal scorer and a 90-100 point getter, and for a small guy, St Louis is pretty physical. Tampa Bay would love to grab some scoring depth, and Filpula, Hudler Grigs and Sammy could make there roster.

Also, the idea of Lilja/3rd for O'brien/Smaby/Ranger would be fantastic is Holland could pull it off, but it's a rumor so I wont put much into it.

It is Eklund, so take it with a grain of salt. Oh, and why do you hate Maltby and Draper so much, you have this stuff about canada in your avatar, without Draper and Maltby we'd have about 4 canadians, so I dont that, I dont understand why you dislike the guys either, been 2 of the most realiable defensive guys for Detroit in the last 10 years. Oh yeah, and 3 more!!! biggrin.gif

Eklund hasn't even released any names mentioned in this "trade".

He's full of crap. Big surprise, isn't it?

I'd rather have Lecavalier than St. Louis. Although definitely not an enforcer, he's more physical than St. Louis and as good, if not better, of scorer.

realistically st louis , richards and lecavalier are going nowhere , prospal has 8 goals he's going no where as well ,
i agree with that





were fine with our defensemen !!!!!! uh no were not... like like Andreas Lilja but hes not that good, Brett Lebda is my fav D but same as Andreas not that good...Niklas Kronwall i think is just worthless....Chris Chelios i also like but i think the age is finally getting to him

Tampa has Filip Kuba, Shane O'Brien and the guy i want us to get .... if we even trade with tampa is Paul Ranger

That's why you can start it off with a big fat no.

Our second line for another superstar? Hudler, Sammy, and Flippula are worth about 60-70 goals. Who knows if a pick will pan out, especially a pick on a lower team- it will be lower down.
