I said I wouldn't give up all that for Kesler but ok. Nick Leddy for Kesler would obviously be a no-brainer, but that's not what you said. Obviously Leddy was the centerpiece of the deal you proposed, and I felt that made it too much to give away.

I didn't even say no! Probably would have to think about that trade hence the "gee I don't know" timidness. Hahaha Oh man, Lockman has been awesome this season.

So NHL Network this morning listing some Canes who might be on the block, and Ward was listed again. How crazy would it be to have Miller and Ward traded on the same deadline?

CBJ was one of the places TSN talked about for Kesler since he played at OSU. Which I had no idea to be honest.

I know I've posted it before but this is what I'll always think of when I think of Umberger.

Intriguing. I grew up a huge BU hockey fan so I do have an Avs Drury sweater in my closet.

Hahahaah.

Honestly though would Vancouver do that deal? Bickell is just dead weight and might kill that deal.

I like Leddy but at this point I don't see him as much more of a 2nd/3rd offensive d-man who is still a bit of a liability defensively. Hard to say if he can take another step with his defensive game.

bonzo48280 02-27-2014 01:14 PM

This is the best time of year...the playoff race. The Hawks had it locked up this time last year so I'm excited for March.

Headline from prohockeytalk: "Callahan’s agent hasn’t talked with Rangers since before Olympics"

That sounds more like 100% he's gone, not 99%.

bonzo48280 02-27-2014 01:58 PM

I'll take Calahan. The Rangers are so interesting

From Lebrun's article today:

Quote:

On Callahan, by the way, I spoke Thursday with his veteran agent, Steve Bartlett, who indicated that he's spoken to the Rangers a few times this week and plans to do so again within the next day or so.

"We'll keep the lines of communication open," Bartlett said.
http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...blues-shopping

Also from the article, regarding Kesler:
Quote:

It doesn't sound as though Kesler actually made a formal trade request at any time, although it was clearly indicated that a change of scenery could benefit both the player and the team; so perhaps semantics, if anything else.

Back in Philly tonight for the Flyers/Sharks game. Looking to chat with a few of the Olympians after the game for a story

TMoore4075 02-27-2014 09:30 PM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Franzen sure likes to play the Sens. 2 of the Wings 4 in the first.

TMoore4075 02-27-2014 09:50 PM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Make that the trick. Franzen now has 9 goals in his last 3 games in Ottawa. So barring a collapse Wings get 4 points in the division. Sad they gave the Habs an extra one last night.

Chat with Pavelski about his hat trick tonight. :p

Or Raffi about two goals on his first game of the year (not that he's an Olympian, just had to mention it).

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Um, can't be too mad when you're already up by 5, but Couture was just unjustly denied a hat trick of his own. Puck was obviously in.

Edit: @brodiebrazilCSN: It's got to be a HAT TRICK for @Logancouture: http://t.co/Ha4a4WhHeR

Who needs Tavares. Screw Toronto. I love beating those guys ever since '02. Bernier looked terrible tonight. Going to love playing spoiler in this tight race.

Yeah, screw Toronto!



You're talking about the War Room, right?

There's no way in hell they'd do it. Leddy is a strong defenseman, but he's showing his ceiling, and he's very weak defensively. He's getting better, but he's a poor man's Brian Campbell. You hit the nail on the head with him. He's going to be replaced by Adam Clendening in Chicago when his contract is up, anyway, maybe even this offseason we could see him as a draft day trade causality.

Bickell is a little more than dead weight, but has a little upside and Pirri just wouldn't command much in a trade. Pirri would be a vital piece to have a young center replacing Kesler, clearly not even close the the same caliber but...I'm sure they'd want a center to replace him.

So no, it was more of a joke that would never be reality.

Honestly, I see the Canucks moving him this offseason or next trade deadline. Their window is closing on a Cup (if not closed) with the current roster makeup, and getting max value for a guy like Kesler who clearly isn't 100% happy with the situation would be really great for a quick rebuild. Moving the Sedin's would be near impossible, since I doubt they would accept a trade to separate teams.
