What's the story with Byfuglien? He seems absolutely perfect, but there isn't a mad rush to get him, and he wasn't tops on our list of targets. He was great for Chicago a few years ago. Has he dropped off? Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

 

I don't believe he's dropped off. I think the Jets just suck.

 

He'd come with some baggage, but the guy would be a fantastic add.


Don't Toews me, bro!

There are no significant UFAs left.

 

That's why this is a thread about trading for a D man, not signing one.

First of all, Babs wouldn't put up with Byfuglien's s***, not that I'm aware there is any baggage to be had with him.... I've never heard of any issues of him being an issue.  Second of all, that'd be a huge gain for our D line and our offense from the back end.

Well if a trade happens you can bet Sheahan or Jurco are gone. I'd rather see what our younger guys can do and wait and go after UFA's again next year. One defenseman doesn't suddenly thrust us in Stanley Cup talks...let's be serious.

I don't think they part with Jurco.  He's the big bodied power forward every team wants.  Sheahan was just signed, and Holland doesn't do sign and trades.  It's gotta be Tatar, Kindl, Andersson, maybe Helm, who while he's an impact player might be slightly redundant now that we have Sheahan.

I don't think they'd part with Sheahan either, unless the return was really really good. A big bodied centre who has good hands and playmaking ability. These guys don't grow on trees. And like you said, he just got a new deal.

Probably next year would be a better time to make a trade. Our forwards will be worth more and we'll have a much better idea what our young d men can do. Around the league the only guys teams want from us is Nyquist, Mantha and our third line

Byuflin would make this offseason disaster complete, fat, overweight coachkiller with a questionable dedication to the game...rather sign no one than trading for him or a guy like Green. Oilers are trying hard to fix their own d why should they trade Petry?

 

Thank God someone is saying it.

Something needs to be done, I will get an ulcer if I have to watch this s***ty defensive corps with no new additions for an entire season.

I fully expect Marchenko to be on the roster next season replacing Kindl or Lashoff.

 

Smith-Kronwall

 

DeKeyser-Ericsson

 

Marchnko-Quincey

 

  or

 

DeKeyser-Marchenko

 

Quincey-Ericsson.

The most important thing is that our top four is kronwall smith dekeyser Ericsson idc who is paired with who. Just as long as Quincey is in the bottom with kindl! Then we can have some comedy everytime they're in the ice!!

Found this in a Google search: http://www.talk-spor...ustin_Byfuglien

An entire forum devoted to hating Byfuglien. I don't get it. He has a fitness problem. Or did, I don't know if he still does. But I see things like "rapper wannabe" and "rap sheet" which makes me wonder if its some weird race-based judgement. I mean, his rap sheet is what, a drunken boating charge? He doesn't seem that bad to me. Especially if he is turning his fitness level around.

Agree, and I think Helm would be an attractive piece in Winnipeg's eyes. Though, I'd always hoped he'd be part of a Bogosian deal, not a Byfuglien one.

I remember the fitness issues, but I agree with the race-based judgement stuff. That really seems to have no bearing on his play on the ice.

If he really is a rap artist, I do believe it would be "2Phat".

Buff is not what the d needs. He is, however, what Detroit area restaurants need. Maybe if he came cheap and moved to wing full time.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
