Tatar for Myers straight up is a NO. Let alone Andersson too. A lot of people on here are pegging Tatar a Hudler when the organization has been said to be grooming him as a Zetterberg.

Edit-I remember Mickey and Ken talking about it while discussing our future as our 2 main center pieces going forward are Tatar & Nyquist


I think you're overestimating how good Tatar is going to be by a long way. He's more of a 60 point winger than a cornerstone of a franchise. Jurco Nyquist and Mantha all have the potential to be much better.

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!

Apparently, the Caps wouldn't want Kindl back in a trade though as they need to shed a D, not acquire one.  Per MLive...  I'm assuming that Tatar would be the centrepiece and I'd give Andersson and a 4th as a trade.  No more than that though as Green only has 1 year left on his contract and we're all over over-paying for rentals.


I've said that for days this isn't new news people just don't read.

I can certainly appreciate what you're saying but that just isn't the player I saw on the ice. If they trade him I hope you're right haha, if they don't obviously I hope wrong. All we need now is time, one of us will be feasting on crow

I apologize. I skim most stuff that still includes buying out Franzen and firing Holland.

Friend of mine just sent me an sms with:

According to Fox Sports Detroit, the big obstacle in a Tyler Myers trade to the Red Wings is that the Sabres want Anthony Mantha.

 

So I guess that's some sort of Twitter-feed ? Anyway, if Murray wants Mantha I'd pray Kenny hangs up immediately.

I don't block anyone. I like reading everyone's post whether I agree or disagree it's good to get several peoples view points.

I think the worrying thing here is that if Mantha is the highest valued prospect from our organisation, that means that anything below him could have been offered and potentially could be taken by the Sabres (i.e anyone, including guys like Jurco, Tatar, Sheahan).

 

I'm getting more nervous by the minute.
