And with Eastern Conference supremacy being up for grabs (if the Isles win the East becaue they landed Boychuk and Leddy, I will s*** bricks)


The Isles won't win the East because of Boychuk and Leddy. ...but I get what you are saying.

i wouldnet give up tats but i would give up smith jurco and a first rounder for oel, honestly acctualy id rather give up big e for oel 


While some of the other offers on this thread are overpayments.

There's no way we're getting OEL for Smith, Jurco, and a first... that's an extremely weak offer.

...and then you pony up Ericsson. That kind of offer is the kind that gets you hung up on.


Doan likely isn't interested in leaving.

Doan is their franchise player. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I don't imagine anyone in that organization thinking that Doan is in any way, shape, or form Yzerman-like other than he is the face of their franchise and someone they want in the organization. Doan probably loves Arizona and doesn't want to end up like Iginla -- former face of the Flames franchise.


As for Marchenko, I hope he proves me wrong in this call-up. I haven't been overly impressed with him so far this season, despite his point totals. I don't expect him to be anything more than a bottom, pairing shut-down guy at the NHL level. It would be awesome if he can translate some of that offense to the NHL, but I just don't expect it. I see him being like a young Ericsson. He's a big guy that can clear the front of the net, rub guys out along the boards (he isn't much of a big hitter) and has a pretty good first pass (something Ericsson has seemed to have lost lately...)

Hmmm.  Marchenko = young Ericsson.  Keep Marchenko and let's jettison Big Rig,

What are the chances that Lash actually gets claimed?

I think realistically were gonna end up going for a low cost veteran d like josh gorges

Also won't happen since we have a ton of depth upfront but if he's getting traded and won't cost a lot I'd go for chris neil , not as young anymore but he's the type of guy we'd need in the playoffs and hopefully would help give us a run like dallas drake did in 08

Gorges is nothing like what we need. 


Chris Neil is not what we need...  but I get it...the mythical, the immortal.  DALLAS DRAKE. 


Look, I'm not going to try to say that he wasn't helpful, but lets not pretend that adding one gritty veteran is what puts a team over the top.

How many times, with how many teams is a depth, veteran grit type player added to a team and it does NOTHING for them?

More often than the adding of such player does.  Plain and simple.  So let's wash away the pretense of this idea.
