    Bouwmeester to Boston!

    It would be very unintelligent for bulin to play in chicago if he wants another cup. He stands a better chance of winning if he plays for phoenix

  3. mikster says:

    I don’t know what is Keenan’s beef with young players, but i guess he is in the hunt for Thornton.

    Would i do it? I’d call it a bit odd….since Jay Bo is so prized and has the potential to be an elite d-man, but if Thornton can make a major difference in Florida, then i guess so.

    Still, it can’t be anyone else other than Thornton.

  4. Montrealsdogg says:

    Bulin and Thibeault on the same team? does that mean Jocelyn is officially on the block?

  5. mikster says:

    He wants the money, he already won a Cup. Then he will retire in Russia.

    If i were the Wings, i’d be getting him though. Wings have been pretty quiet so far, which is odd.

  6. mikster says:

    Well, it has not happened yet. It’s still speculation. But, i’d think Thibault would be on the block…. and maybe head to the Yotes or Bolts.

  7. dudemar says:

    I would think so. A number of teams (CBJ, PGH, PHO etc.) will probably be watching this closely. They should all be in the hunt for a goalie, and considering what Thibault signed for, he seems affordable.

    The Isles are supposed to get a young good skating dman today. good be him. but probably not.

    khabibulin is not worth 7.8 million a year.

  9. nordiques100 says:

    maybe to leafs and belfour to bolts or yotes hehe

  10. mikster says:

    There’s no one on the Isle’s that i’d take for Jay Bo. If there is, who do you have in mind (not Peca).

    I guess Theo’s desire for a 4 year 22 milllion dollar deal from the Habs is quite modest given the potential amount that Chicago is willing to pay for Khabby. IMHO, moreover, 7.8 mil a year for Khabby is a bit steep.

  12. mikeribeiro says:

    If Khabibulin sings for the max salary, Theodore is goin for 5,5 mil / year…maybe 6

    Bouwmeester TO DALLAS

  14. 19Yzerman says:

    with the new NHL schedualing putting teams within your division for 8 games each. This and the Adam foote to CBJ kind of rock the boat for them a little.

    I think the wings are quietly trying.

  15. Kashin says:

    I dont think they have anyone. but it says on their website they are going to announce an acquisition (trade or FA) of a young good skating good d man.

  16. 19Yzerman says:

    Pretty good bench of players. Terrible owner! poor chicago fans. What a way to run a team so that the AHL team in your city mean more to the fans.


    I hope this changes. This owner has basically instituted his own permanent blackout. I hope this new CBA helps him find a way to put the Hawks back into the living rooms in chicago. Maybe he will and will also retract his statement to the fans about how they should not expect a Stanley Cup any time soon.

    Original Six City!! Should Act like it!!

  17. WangKumar says:

    I doubt this is Milbury’s mystery man but Florida and the Isles have been consistent trading partners in the past. Makes me wonder!

  18. WangKumar says:

    Could DiPietro be on the trade market? He is a RFA, and the new rules that limit the goalies from leaving the crease will not benefit him, because that is what he does best.

    Volchenkov aint coming back .. lets get Bouwmeester

  20. Flyer_Dman says:

    The only goalie in the league worth 7.8 mil is Luongo…and that is still an enormous stretch. Teebo is a solid goalie, why not spend the 7.8 on two premier players? I just don’t get it.

  21. Flyer_Dman says:

    Apparently JBo looked awful this year in the AHL. That might be why.

  22. evilnick88 says:

    I can’t believe he got the GM job… He’s not exactly the best negociator out there and he hates young players…

    He’d be insane to trade Bouwmeester…

  23. Maximus says:

    Chicago will not pay khabibulin 7.8 million. The article did not say the blackhawks are willing to pay 7.8 million, it said that he is believed to be seeking that salary. I seeking that salary, but alas my company said no.

  24. Flyer_Dman says:

    Yea…they said no to me too.
