According to Hockeyleaks.com and Canucksource.com there are several sources that are reporting the possible trade of Tyler Aranason from Chicago to Vancouver for Matt Cooke and a high draft pick.Links
This is covered under the Cooke situation… I would not mind if this trade happened but we may get a disgruntled Arnason. He will be coming from being the first line centre on the Hawks to the third line centre for us with a possibility of MAYBE making second line depending on Carter’s play. Plus he play’s extremely well with Tuuomo Ruutu. Who knows? We’ll see… The Cooke situation has to be remedied soon IMO.
not gonna happen.
I don’t think Chicago would want to go for another high draft pick when they can just develop Arnason. Arnason is a scorer, but cooke is a badass. I guess their ready to go with Yukabov and Vorbiev if their willing to deal Cooke.
I think of all the teams in the NHL, Chicago has the possibly the brightest future.
Bourque showed some good offense in the first preseason game.
CLEARLY a deep youth. IF they develop them well, they can have and open playoff run. Chicago has a problem where their “TOP” rookies don’t breakout until their 3rd or 4th season. Except Arnason and Bell. Khabi could probably help Leighton by example. I’m not sure the type of vocal leader he can be. I like that they signed Aucoin becuase he’s what you want Barker to be. Seabrook is a hulking powerplay quaterback. Like a Pronger, but I highly doubt he will get that far. It looks good for the hawks, they’ll be in the playoffs by next year.
I think the Hawks will make the playoffs this year. With heavy divisional play, they are better than St Louis and Columbus and have always played Detroit well…with Detroit losing Hatcher, Datsyuk, Whitney, Hull, and having a weak goatlending tandem, I think Detroit is realling going to falter. I see Chicago and Nashville as the strongest teams in the division. Let’s face it, there are changing of the guards now. Yzerman is older and so is Shanahan, I can’t expect them to do much.
That would be pretty dumb on the Hawks side.
Blahahahahah the Hawks are joking right???
Second line centre. great 2 way contributer who you can count on to score with a average salary.. If they kept the sedins on the second im smack them at the back of the head after this (if this trade was to happen)
im stickin to what ive always said and thats that cooke is stayin in vancouver
Cooke is definitely being traded, but not to Chicago for Arnason. Hawks would be dumb as ass to unload an emerging offensive player like Arnason.
