Flyers Trade…. Nope, Not The One You Think Of!

Bobby Clarke traded today defensemen Eric Weinrich to the St.Louis Blues in exchange for a 5th round pick in the 2004 draft…(TSN.ca)

Weinrich, 37 will be playing for a seventh team in is 15th year in career.

He has 9 points in 54 games so far this year.

My take on this: With so many teams looking for good reliable defensemen (some like St.Louis being almost desparate) I am surprised that Weinrich could be had for nothing more than a song and a kiss on the cheek.

I know the guy is old and all, but he is reliable, can still be a good #4 defensemen in a good team and the defensemen market will most likely go incredibly high considering the lack of sellers for so many buyers. Besides, didn’t Clarke acquired 2 defensemen like last week anyway? What was the master plan behind risking to overpay for 2 d-man and then giving away one of your regulars for free?

I’m waiting for the Comrie-for-Burke trade to finalize to officially say that Bobby Clarke has turned on the ”panic mode” switch… Someone’s feeling the heat of not being able to win in the playoffs with the same ”Bobby C” type of team year after year. Changes may be needed if this year isn’t the one.

    It’s actually Bollocks, but who the hell cares. Sex Pistols are overrated if you ask me.

  2. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    UH, yeah chief, the problem is all those other teams are WINNERS!!!! thats the whole point! “get my math straight”??????? uh, NO, try and understand the point of the post before you open your mouth….I’ll explain, The Rangers being the higest salary team in the NHL are awful, and they are awful every year despite having a high payroll, see all those other teams near the top little fella? they all win and make the playoffs! get it, do you get it now retard? DO THIS MATH SHIT FOR BRAINS

    HIGHEST PAYROLL IN THE NHL/ NO PLAYOFFS PAST 6 YEARS= DISGRACE!!!

  3. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    FIRE SALE?????? do you have any clue what your talking about? a fire sale is when a team unloads high salary players for picks and prospects. there hasnt been one trade involving any CORE players on this team. hes moving fringe players, and needed to make a goalie move because of the Hackett situation, and to tell you the truth I like Burke alot better then Hackett. You talk about the Flyers choking in the playoffs, are you a Leafs fan? If you are thats a pretty brain dead statement……think about it!

  4. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    NOPE, everthing I posted there was fact little guy, you cant argue facts!

    “- You’re nothing.

    – You have no friends.

    – You obviously don’t have a life.”

    LOL….LOL…LOL..LOL

    now this is good comedy!

    A guy who spends his time talking about a team that cant make the playoffs the past 6 years despite having the highest payroll has the audacity to say someone else has no life? WOW…….LOL…!!!!

    you are nothing” ……..LOL!!!!!!, this is so insightful!!!

    you have no friends“….LOL!!!!!!, and here you are again with another genius comment, give yourself a big pat on the back here little man!

    You make yourself look foolish calling people names and using general derogatory remarks on an internet sight, where anyone can be a tough guy, intellighent people know guys like you who hide behind a computer to “act tough” are real life pussys……..think about it little guy, no one in here buys your act except that monkey Mikster and a handful of Ranger fans…….when your a little older youll understand little boy.

  5. Lint07 says:

    wow. you didn’t even read half of what I said now did you?

    re-read, you may understand.

    (I can’t believe you thought I was saying the Flyers were on a fire sale!)

  6. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    theres an exception to every rule, every sport has first round busts. NO KIDDING, thats not insightful.

    Brent Johnson and Dopita being included on a list suggesting sucess is a JOKE!

    yeah really shut me up…..LOL….

    IM an Idiot, im not the blind fool following a non-playoff team around for the past 6+ years, thinking every 10 million $ they add to payroll will bring a trip to the post-season…….we all know how well this stragety has worked out….

  7. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    The Nashville Predators have 60 million less in payroll (last in the NHL) compared to the Ranger$,

    Guess which team is going to the playoffs!!!!!!!

    -this is just beautiful!!!!, the Predators will make the playoffs with the lowest payroll and that disgrace will not. unreal, true and fact, but unreal.

    This is really sad……..

  8. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    “I am sorry but any GM making 4 trades in 2 weeks (4 trades!!) is either in a sort of panic or in the middle of a fire sale.”

    they are your words not mine…………panic or fire sale would not explaain what happened……they needed a goalie, and when the final deal went down, i cant say im upset at all, At first the thought of Comrie for Burke straight up was awful, but in the end it worked out, and like I mentioned they havent moved any core players….

  9. Lint07 says:

    wow! I can’t believe it. I’ll try with bold letters, you seem to like those:

    …and then I say the following:

    We both know this isn’t #2.

    tell me you got it after the 4th try… please!

    Just like I said, you didn’t read half of what I wrote.

    I hate arguing with people who don’t even put the effort of reading the whole text before replying.

  10. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    dude, i though you were refering to #2 as the second trade, my bad, i got you now………besides I was also saying hes not in panic mode either…

  11. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    daigle leads his team in goals, and is second in points…….sure hes floped with a few teams, but hes playing well right now

  12. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    “You’re running on fumes with the same old remarks over and over again. Get new material. It kind of gets tiring belittling you constantly, it’s almost like stealing candy from a baby.”

    The problem is you have not once come back with any facts or any thing of substance……the best you can do is use generic derogatory remarks, You cant belittle someone you dont know by throwing general school yard remarks out there, arent you smarter than that chip you moron? You assRanger fans have some real repressed anger issue, i cant say im surprised, Knowing how much I love Hockey I would be angry all the time if i were in your spot as well guy, it must suck having to follow that pile of dog shit team……LOL

  13. GretzNYR99 says:

    That’s right, I can’t argue facts, and I wasn’t. But you’re arguing facts. Sucks to be a hypocrite, doesn’t it?

    “A guy who spends his time talking about a team that cant make the playoffs the past 6 years despite having the highest payroll has the audacity to say someone else has no life? WOW…….LOL…!!!!” – So basically, on that notation, you write off sports fans as people with no life. Nice job you simpleton, good job. Obviously, I’m a Ranger fan, I’m going to talk about my team as any other fan of a team would. By the way, and what were you doing? Talking about the Rangers! Bashing them! Exactly, you have no life. You just helped prove my point! Muchas gracias, senorita.

    And here you are, talking about me “making myself look foolish…” HAHAHAHAHAHAH, WHAT A LAUGH. Touche, asswipe!

    I said that you don’t have friends because you don’t. You spend too much time bashing the Rangers, and by your notation, anyone who talks about a sports team, or the Rangers has no life. So basically, you don’t have a life. What’s there not to understand? Do you lack mental coherency to understand simple logic? Or are you a high-functioning retard with no sense of self-guidance?

    When I’m a little older, I’ll understand? From someone who uses “LOL” and other online terms and lingo, that statement doesn’t hold up well. How old are you? 15? WhAt’S NeXt, AlTeRnAtInG cApItALs N kEwL sPeLLnGs LyKe DiSs?

    You’re a joke. Maybe if you had a life, you also wouldn’t have to log onto 50 different screen names to hide your true identity when you attempt to belittle and insult people. And I’m a pussy? Hah! This coming from the one who gets stuffed in his locker at his high school! (I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt when I say high school.)

    What now?

  14. GretzNYR99 says:

    Because I’m a fan of the team automatically means that I think that every guy they bring in will help turn the team around?

    Nice assumption, it’s just too bad that’s all that amounts to. Where are the facts, buddy?!?

    Typical Ranger basher, thinks all the fans think that every guy they bring in will automatically turn the club around. You’re all assumptions, no facts, aside from the obvious Ranger stuff. Just like playing a game of Whack-A-Mole, but sucking horribly at it. Guessing as to which hole the mole will pop up from but missing badly with some ridiculous generalized assumption that you have no proof of. Come back when you learn something else about hockey…

  15. GretzNYR99 says:

    Great for Nashville, they work hard for it. I give them all the credit in the world for making it.

    What’s beautiful about this is that maybe it will be a sign to the powers that be up in the Garden to finally rebuild, and when we rebuild, we’ll shut lost little village idiots like yourself up. What will be the excuse then, we bought the cup with youth? We made the playoffs with youth? “Well you still have Jagr, you bought your way into the playoffs.” It’s bound to happen sometime, law of average.

  16. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    here you go again…..terms like ass wipe, saying im in high school, i get stuffed in a locker…..etc..etc..

    Wake UP!!! i already told you calling people names and trying to act tough on an internet site makes you look like a FOOL…..its a joke, if you ever want to meet in real life, send me a private message Im right here in Philly (im assuming you live somewhere in the NY area) and well meet man to man, then well see how tough you are, well see if you run your mouth then…….so unless you want to go man to man in person….quit running your mouth, it really make you look like an idiot….

    by the way I spend abot 30-45 min. a day on this site, that 45 mins. is really cutting into my time to have friends and a life…LOL….that only leaves me with 23 hours a day to do other things, guess i really need to get a life HUH?

    i use LOL, because you make me laugh little guy!!!

    cant help it i think your funny, a real legend in your own mind.!!!!

    high school…..man I wish I could go back to high school, work sucks, I graduated H.S in 95. Id give my left nut to go back to those days.

    anyway, man up…..or quit making yourself look like a tool….im here waiting.

  17. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    Im basing that statement in the context of this website, typical ranger fans on this site think that way, do you not agree?

  18. Blueye7 says:

    Could have gotten more for Weinrich.

    I never really liked him but his value has to be higher than a fourth round pick.

    Hey Matteo….how’s little Joe?

  19. Killa_Bs says:

    Judging by the remarks that some of the NY Rangers fans (don’t know why anyone would be that) have posted it hurts a lot to see your team miss the playoffs constantly. When is the Jagr-effect going to kick in? My guess is that it already has. Jagr has not improved an already terrible team and funny thing is: many of us told you so before the trade. The Rangers play without heart so what do they do? They get another player that has: no heart.

    People have been complaining about the Bruins being really cheap over the years and I would lie if I told you that it hasn’t been frustrating at times. Look at us now though: bound for playoffs and maybe even home ice advantage. It is great when money isn’t what wins cups. It helps but it is not the answer.

    I’d like to finish of by sending my worst to NYR and hope that they will suck this bad for another..say 50 years or so.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha..

  20. Killa_Bs says:

    GretzNYR99 is obviously in a lot of pain right now.

    :(

  21. Killa_Bs says:

    So how are the Rangers doing right now?

    Are they going to the playoffs or what?

    If they only had someone like Jagr..

    I’m sorry for the sarcasm. It just feels so bad to read your posts when you are in such pain.
