In Topic: Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Look at him in the playoffs last year and you will see what I'm seeing. He drove Quick nuts. Tough guy to move. Net front presence, certainly an upgrade over Andersson. Going to need size in the playoffs. Sheppard is a nice piece who still has room to grow. Rumor says he can be had for pick. One of this teams biggest needs is size, other than a RH Dman. He is an upgrade that can be had for cheap.


So he's an upgrade over a guy who's a reserve when everyone is healthy.  Wow, what a great endorsement.

I'm sure there's a Franzen thread to discuss this in.


Franzen thread?  As in one?  Probably a few more than that.


Regardless, I didn't think what Benn did was a big deal, the same type of thing happened all the time in the rec leagues I played in.  It just happened to have a worse than normal result.

The price was always going to be high to get Yandle.  The fact that he hasn't been traded after how many years of the rumors tells me that he is available but hasn't been actively shopped and/or the asking price is astronomical.

I didn't actually say I thought any of them would be worth giving up for him, I actually gave several reasons why I wouldn't, but the report is that theyd want one of xo, Marchy, or Sproul in the deal.
Which is why I went through the list and said why I wouldn't trade each.
Im aware i said
I'm torn which one is rather give up, which would imply I'd be willing to part with one, but I gave this side of the argument, not knowing what petry would bring over any of them, besides regular season experience...
I went through the possibilities, because he would be an upgrade over kindl at this point, and I was assuming he'd resign here which would tackle the long term issue, but can you tell me why you only focused on one single line that implied something I questioned at best?
Seriously can anyone tell me why one ambiguous thing I said overrides everything else I posted?


It's not really focused on you, even though that post I quoted never said you wouldn't trade one of those 3 prospects for him, but that's beside the point.  It's anyone who thinks that they should trade for him.  But since you mentioned that you assume they'd sign him to an extension if they did trade for him, what about him makes you think he'd be an upgrade over whichever rookie would be in the lineup full time next year?  If he's only an upgrade over Kindl, who is the 7th defenseman, where would Petry fit into the lineup?

If xo or Sproul goes the other way, the pick won't be anything more than a 2nd, if that.
Im a bit torn as to which d man id rather give up, I think marchenko has earned his spot over xo, but I've read people saying xo has top pairing potential.
I don't see that, but I could believe it.

I dont wanna give up Sproul simply because of his size/shot potential and his ceiling is highhhhhh.
I'm not ready to give up on him, even though he hasn't really been meeting expectations in the AHL.

Honestly the only reason I can come up with to trade marchenko would be because Sproul and xo have some chemistry, but marchenko already looks like a top four d man.
The difference between him and petry is NOT that big, IMO.
The only reason I'd say petry is ahead of him is because ofpetrys experience, but they have the same number of playoff experience. Which basically negates that point.
I'm not even sure I want to give up Jensen, his speed is amazing.


What makes you think that Petry is worth giving up Marchenko or any of the other top 3 or 4 D prospects in the system to get?  Seriously, can someone tell me what they see in Petry that they think he'd be an upgrade over anyone other than Kindl or maybe whichever rookie would be in the lineup, and/or can help long term?
