Since Kenny tried to get Edler it's obvious that he could be looking at some help on "D".

 

If Boston wants some help od offense (Alfredsson/Iginla for exemple or to keep Horton), they could be trading some players such as : Rich Peverley, Chris Kelly or Johnny Boychuk (per James Mirtle) and we could also add McQuaid. I don't think that they will move Tyler Seguin so they are going to move someone else.

 

One player who could help us is Johnny Boychuk, RHD with a big shot, big hitter, can play on PP and PK, with a $3,366,667 cap hit for another 2 years... They could be looking for some picks/prospects since they might need to shed money.

 

Another player who could be also nice pickup is Kelly as Helm replacement. 

 

What would be the asking price?

 

 

Kronwall - Boychuk

DeKe - Smith

E - Kindl/Q

 

 

Your thoughts?

Ference?

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Kenny made an offer for Edler.

Khan reported that Kenny is looking at top 2/3 Def... since the D-FA pool isn't deep he could be looking to trade for it.


Ference?

 

 

I like him but he's less offensive minded than Boychuk... I think that Ference could be back with Calgary.

The free-agent market for defensemen is thin, but the Red Wings might continue exploring trades for a top-pair D-man. They made an offer for Vancouver's Alex Edler at the entry draft but the Canucks didn't move him before his no-trade clause took effect on Monday.

Pass. He got beat up by Crosby for God's sake.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

I'd love to have all those right handed forwards Boston seems to possess.  

 

Defensively, I'd take a Boychuk.  


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

Egads, I seriously hope you don't consider Kindl & Q to be equals or worse than Smith at this point. Kindl is superior to them both.

This guy would be the perfect 2nd line center for us.

 

Too bad it could never happen. Apparently he's close to an 8 year extension with the Bruins.

I don't think that Babs will scratch Q.
Kindl played very good hockey but I still think that Smith will be solid player for us.

Why would Boston trade with us when they will be against us more often. I'm sure they wouldn't want to play against Boychuck.

Scuderi is headed to free agency. Wouldn't mind adding him.

Very good point. I personally think Boychuk is their best Dman. I'd give up Smith for him and I'm still pretty high on that kid.

Scuderi would be good too.

Free darkmanx!

We NEED a 1st Line Sniper (Vanek).

We NEED a 2nd Line Banger (Clarkson).

We HAVE 10 NHL capable defensemen (Ericsson, Kronwall, Smith, Quincey, Kindl, DeKeyser, Lsshoff, Almqvist, Sproul, Ouelette).

Why is he still our GM? He is an idiot. Pull your head out, Holland. Its so obvious and so simple.

Stop circumventing the swear filter, and our current number one need is a second line center

According to who?

We have 7 centers on our team (Z, Dats, Helm, Andersson, Emmerton, Franzen, Miller). If Flip and Cleary resign, then 9.

Why add another center?

Me. So what are YOU saying? That we have 7? How many do we need? Perfect. You proved my point. Defense is not our need, currently.

Because most of those people are not capable of centering a second line, datsyuk and Zetterberg are the only two you listed I would be comfortable with. I would rather have them both in the top line and have a second line center for franzen

I'd rather have 26 year old Fedorov back too. Trust me. But Ken Holland aint gonna get us a marquis player this year. He's going after Edler and Weiss. These guys are chumps. You shouldnt have to beg for scraps. Thats bad GM'ing. Good GM'ing is finding what you have too much of ( D and Small/skilled Euros) and trading for what you dont have enough of (Scorers and Big/Hitting North Americans). Thats why we ate all scratching our heads. We need 2 Fawking players to make this team a Stanley Cup winner. We need a guy like Vanek, and we need a guy like Clarkson. Kenny is going after Edler, Weiss, and Cleary. That's just foolish.

I actually like Mule as a 2nd line center. Force him to work.
