Default Ye Olde Trade Rumor Thread

Flog away, folks. Flog away.

Me, personally? I liked the Cam Barker trade rumors better.

I also agree with Erlendsson - if anyone's going, it's the pending UFAs. Of course, that's not a "sexy" enough rumor, much more fun to think your team is scouting St. Louis as opposed to Gratton.

This Turco-for-St. Louis thing just refuses to die, been kicking around for months now.

Yeah, there's no way.

Every year is Marquee Player A being traded for Marquee Player B and for the very, very most part - all you're going to get is Prospal for a pick or Gratton for a forward prospect.

Nothing to change the world, but should help plug smaller holes in the future.

I don't want any of the Stars' prospects. I'd just as soon try and get their 1st rounder.

Default Richards

There is a variance to a Richards for Khabibulin trade I might go for.
Straight up? No way in ***.
But if the Hawks sweetened the pot with a No. 2, a middle-range forward prospect and took Denis off our hands. (maybe we could throw in Gratton, Hlavac, Janik, Ward, something like that) - i might be interested.

Trading Richards would be a stupid, short-sighted exercise in futility.

Why not move Kuba? Sure it weakens the defense some, but if we are already going to be bottom of the barrel who cares? It would free up 3 mill for next year, which could go along way in resigning Boyle.

I could definitely get behind moving Kuba and using the $3M to help keep Boyle. The problem is, it might be tough to find someone to take Filip without sending some salary back the other way.

If I could get a top-60 pick for Kuba, I probably would take it.

Agreed on all counts.

Anyone have a list of UFA dmen for next year?

Otherwise we're looking at:

Ranger-Boyle
O'Brien-Lundin
Lukowich-Smaby

Maybe not that bad... assuming OB takes a confident step forward and Lundin doesn't have a Sophoslump.

Some of them have already been re-signed and others will most likely be re-signed, but that's the list.
