Ferguson talking trade with Dallas?

Al Stachan reports in a colomn in the Toronto Sun that the Dallas stars are once again (or still) trying to unload the large contract of Billy Guerin. It is speculated that they have been trying to work out a deal with the Maple Leafs involving Guerin and/or Defenseman Richard MatvichuckIts no secret Dallas was shopping around Bill Guerin in the past due to his 9 million $ contract. Although I don’t think a deal will be done involving Guerin going to Toronto, if the rumour of Matvichuck is true, I could see it happening. Dallas was interested in Leafs winger Tie Domi in the summer of 2002 when he was a free agent, and may also be interested in Darcy Tucker.

    Quinn likes the free flowing game and does not like playing defensive hockey.

    To me it seems like some of the veterans of the team have tuned Quinn out.I think it’s time for Quinn to move on.

    This team hasn’t really improved all the much,in fact,they aren’t as good as a team as last years group in my opinion.

    Quinn’s coaching tactics are out of date along with the rest of the Leafs.

    Cool,Modano is a great player and anyone who says otherwise isn’t a fan of the sport.

    That was a good comment and I appreciate that.

    Everyone has their opinion on certain players,teams,coachs etc,but no sense in beating a dead horse over and over again.

    You seem to fail to realize that Guerin’s trade value isn’t very high at all.So your the one over rating your own team’s value.

    Guerin’s hefty 9 million dollar a year contract isn’t going to attract anyone with any common sense.

    Think about it for a second ,who could the Stars receive who will help them right off the bat?.The majority of the upper class players are paid very handsomly.

    Look at what players like Kovalev and Jagr went for.Next to peanuts.It’s all about the money now and not about equality in terms of talent going on way or the other.

    Hey 89alexandermogilny89, thanks for the entertainment. First, you threaten a guy you’ve never met and over the internet. Convenient that the guy lives thousands of miles away. Then you call anyone who disagrees with you a chump or a punk or just ignorant. Man, you are a funny guy.

    It just doesnt make sense. Guerin is making alot of money, but he only signed the deal over a year ago, and he’s delivered what was expected of him. It just odd that suddenly now he’s being shopped around. Injury free Guerin is probably going to be the Stars mvp this season with Modano’s early struggles.

    I don’t think anyone from Toronto worth having is available. Toronto deffinately has some players who would be worth picking up (Moginly,Nolan, etc) but its the players I feel are pretty average (Tucker,Domi) which doesnt make sense to me since to me. Dallas, on paper, is still a force in the West this year, and to make a trade like that sounds more like a team thats not going to contend dumping payroll (ie, Jagr, Kovelev). Dallas wins the West last year, and now feel the need to take the team apart, give away a great player to Toronto, and get next to nothing in return?

    No, he wasnt offered a contract. Toronto offered contracts to Bobby Holik and Darius Kaspaitis, moderate interest in Tony Amonte. Never did they go after Guerin.

    Re. Berezin comment, we dont need more forwards. Especially Berezin. Berezin isnt an answer to the PP, the answer lies from within.

    No offensive talent on the Leaf’s? Come on man your looking like a fool. Even the haters cant deny that, it is one of their strong points. Maybe your mistaken with your good friend Modano who seems to be a bit dry this year. If your going to make points, make sure they are valid, I have no problem with truth.

    He lives in Toronto check what he said.If you want to open your yap you need a shot in the mouth.

    So anytime anywhere…..So quit hiding and being a coward because your ass can be dusted.

  8. 89AlexanderMogilny89 says:

    Yeah the sad thing is a lot of trades are made strictly because of a teams ecomonical situation.

    I think the Stars have tried to trade him and there was no takers because of his high salary.

    you really are sad, truely pathetic

    people like you are the reason toronto fans have such a bad reputation


  10. 89AlexanderMogilny89 says:

    Only one who’s sad and pathetic is you coward.Now please shut your hole.

  11. davidhabba says:

    I just figured it out! 89aleandermogilny89 is actually Darcy Tucker! Same side-show Mel mentality, same lunacy and vindictiveness. BTW, I live in toronto too, nutbar, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to meet some basketcase like you on a street corner. Grow up and take your ritalin. Besides, if I did meet you, you’d probably go for my knees, right Darcy?

    matvichuck a number 1 d-man? is this comedy central? bahahah

  13. mattf says:

    he is a good player but those long locks of hair makes me think he is a little bit more..in a bisexual sort of way.

  14. JeffBurnz09 says:

    He’s expected to fill Hatchers role…Hatcher was the Stars #1 d-man…I’d say Zubov is their #1 right now, but they’re expecting something more from Matvichuck…

  15. JeffBurnz09 says:

    I just don’t see why Dallas would want to trade him. I know the 9 million per year is alot, but they only signed him a year and 1/2 ago, and he’s done what he was brought their to do when he was healthy. They needed a power forward would could score and play with Modano to take the place of Hull, and now that they have one, they want to get rid of him? I think its more of a case of Dallas making some stupid moves, and now they’re attempting to make another stupid one.

    No you coward ass bitch.I would bite you cock off and stuff in down your throat and then use you to mop the whore house your mother frequents.

    Your a coward obviosuly I would send you and all your body parts one by one to your family and then well I will save a few and feed them to your street whore of a sister since she is one of the needy.

    So please go away coward.You don’t stand a chance.
