Do I have any guarantee that he won't suffer a concussion?


Because if I do, then I'd make all three of those trades.  

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Option 3:  The only guy on our list that the team from last year would miss is Dekeyser.  Everyone else either didn't play, didn't play much, or can be replaced by someone better in the pipeline. 

I'm a Paul Heyman guy.

If the wings ever gave up Datsyuk or Z for Cindy Crosby I would light my car on fire and drive it off a cliff at 100 mph, into a pit of more fire. and then blow myself up in the process with 20 pounds of C4.

I hate these hypothetical posts. Are we really that bored during the Stanley Cup Finals?

My decision is to walk out of the office. I just can't justify any of those trades, regardless of the fact that it's the best player in today's game. 

I wouldn't make any of those trades either.  I don't care if it's Crysby, all 3 of those are retarded overpayments and are the type of depthkillers that make Pittsburgh the team they are.  We're in Kenny Holland's shoes, not Shero's or Holmgren's.  The Wings and Ilitch don't just make stupid trades like the OP listed.  I know we need threads to pass the offseason, but this one just plain sucks.

I like this team.

Since no one wants to play.....option 1 it really isn't even a close decision.

3rd one. 


Smith is a train wreck. 


Helm may never play at top level again. 


Mrazek hurts, but it's acceptable with a young Howie and McCollum still in development. 


Nyquist really hurts since he is Datsyuk's replacement.


Dekeyser is our defensive future with Smith showing his true form last season so it hurts the most, but we can survive on trades and Kindl for a few seasons. 


Can't go Option 1 cause we can't lose Kronwall AND Nyquist. 


Can't go Option 2 because we lose too much with 3 prospects going. Dats in a Pens jersey also makes me throw up in my mouth.

I would only make a trade if the Pens agreed to throw in a lifetime supply of Kleenex's to wipe away all of Crosby's tears...

A bag of broken hockey sticks and a bag of used pucks would be too much.  At least in their lifetime they served a purpose.  There is a three word reply to this question...shoot me now.
