Trade Ian White

Which is one of the reason I wanted Bouwmeester, he could have really bailed out Kronwall's mistakes. Ericsson is good in his own right, I just don't think he's at a level in which he can make up for Kronwall. Hopefully he can develop some chemistry, but man do they make some crucial mistakes for a number 1 pairing.

Bouwmeester? Seriously? That guy makes tons of mistakes on defense.

But you're right a Doughty, Pieterangelo, Keith, Suter, Weber don't grow on trees, which is why I really wished Holland would have been more aggressive going after Subban for example.

Subban, as the future of the Canadiens' defense, would not have been put on the market unless he had outright refused to sign with the Canadiens. I'm not sure why you believed that he was an option.

I am really happy we didn't get Bouwmeester. Here we are complaining about how our defensemen pinch in often and cant get back on defense. Bouwmeester is a master at that.

Subban was never on the market and Kenny doesn't offer RFA contracts.

You forgot Franzen and Cleary too.

cleary yes, and franzen sure, just find someone who can score 25-30 goals around the same cap hit to replace him and we will be good...

hmmm :confused1:

no ones trading anything white and filppula would of been a perfect time to trade them ... i swear if we go to the playoffs get knocked off first round and filppula leaves for nothing like hudler did im gonna be pissed off im sure we could of gotten a 1st and some type of prospect ...no way boston wouldnt jump at filppula and white duo trade if we called them up now to try and battle back against the moves the pens have made

If White isn't traded, he should be a healthy scratch

You don't scratch one of the 50 best defenseman in the league.

Ian White is a great player, just is battling some demons right now. He'll be huge down the stretch.

I was semi sarcrastic, but really Ian White has been a very good point producing defenseman. And he's only 28. It wasn't just a one year thing with Lidstrom, the previous year he played with Calgary and Toronto and put up 38 points and played 22 minutes a night, 28th among defenseman in points and 42nd in ice time.

He's struggled this year, but it's not like he's never been productive.

I do not consider him top 50, maybe top 100
