Please God, do not let us give away assets for Travis Hamonic.... he's not that good, I'd rather we go get Brendan Smith back.  That's saying a lot because I was happy we moved him.

Yeah, I'm not terribly high on Hamonic.

It just takes a simple search of his stats to understand he's not that good.  He had one good season with 33 points in 14/15.  Other than that, he's never broken 26 points and was a -21 last season.  He also has never, not one time, played a full season.  The only way this move makes sense is if we are moving Ericsson out and replacing him with Hamhock.

Getting Hamonic would be another s***ty "I just wanna make the playoffs" deal. And we still wouldn't make the playoffs anyway.

Fortunately, #TradesAreHard, so we're probably safe.

Funny, just two years everyone was saying Holland sucked for not trading for Hamonic. How times change.

Kind of looking like his good year was a fluke, but on the other hand his regression (if that's what it really is) started at the same time he started asking for a trade. Maybe he needs a change of scenery. 

Two firsts is obviously a ridiculous price (would have been even two years ago), and that probably means Isles wouldn't accept anything reasonable, but I'd take him if they would.

Agree with all of this. It would depend on what we'd have to give up for sure.

Maybe McIlrath will earn himself another contract...maybe a few call ups.

Wouldn't mind that at all. I remember something Nelson said about just his presence on the bench/ice made everyone on the team 6 inches taller. Take it no one wanted to f*** with the guy? Haha

The object remains to get a puck moving defensemen. Still hasn't gotten it done. Have assets, use them. Get the job done Holland 

I thought Green was our big puck moving defenseman?

Wouldn't mind giving Gelinas or Morrow a shot on a cheap deal. Mobile defensemen who can shoot. Gelinas had a solid rookie year, and 2nd wasn't bad. Worst case, they can't win a spot in camp and we waive them.

Yakupov could be good on a cheap deal as well.

I know you're probably not serious, but there's not even enough room for all of our guys as it is...

Paetsch(?), Lashoff, Renouf, Russo, Hicketts, Cholowski, McIlrath(?), Hronek, Saarijarvi, Sulak...
