In Topic: A plea to Holland.

At what point do we start considering Almquist as a possible asset? Even if he is undersized and not rugged - he has 52 points in 69 games right now. I would prefer to have him play over Kindl as he can actually run a power play and pass the puck effectively. He can't be much worse than Kindl in his own zone right now. Would be nice to showcase him right now and then trade him if he isn't in our long term plans due to ouellet, sproul, marchenko. 


"Even is he is undersized and not rugged"  -  I remember Rafalski's last year here and people complaining that he got ran by opposing team's large forwards.  Shudder to think what would be said of Almquist.

And now we all see the value the Grind Line brought to the Wings years ago.  They could play tough against the best lines of other teams and could also score.

Holland is being hated on because he wasn't able to steal a player away from another team. It's all Holland's fault that there aren't enough GMs as bad as Garth Snow. Shame on him.

Lets see, one of two players who are on good contracts, are able to man a PP, and are pretty good defensively? I would have parted with one of Nyquist or Tatar and a B level prospect and a 2nd round pick easily.


Why? Because they are under team control, they are relatively young, and they fill a need that doesn't disappear the second week of April.



Thats all nice however what did Helene SJ say the Canucks wanted for Kesler:  Young forwards (plural), prospect and a 1st rounder.


So if we ASSUME that the Canucks would at least want the same for Edler then you have to compare that trade to the Legwand trade.


I'll play devil's advocate here and say they would want both Nyquist and Tatar, the prospect being of better quality than Jarnkrok (I believe Mantha was mentioned) and that oh-so-delicious 1st round draft pick which no one wants to give up.



Seriously, is everyone just pissed about the Legwand deal because we got Legwand for Eaves, Jarnkrok and the 3rd/2nd instead of Kesler or Edler?

Some guy in my office has the Sweden-Czech game streaming from the BBC right now.  Incredible how lame the announcers are, particularly the guy with the British accent who knows little about hockey.


I never thought I would miss Doc, Ed and Pierre.
