Waivers today: Van Der Gulik, Miettinen, Rosehill, Boyce
Well with Hemsky off the market now, Grabos the best forward available..
On TSN they said Burke would strongly consider trading Grabo if they can get a 1st. I really hope that's not the case. I would hope for much more if they're trading him.
Depends…If they are trading that 1st away for someone else.
From history (except Kessel deal)…Burke likes to have atleast one first rounder in a draft.
So, if he's trading Toronto…You bet he would take atleast a first for Grabo.
Yea I'd want a first + a decent/good prospect for sure… A first round pick from Any team looking to get a 2nd line C will probably give us a 20+ overall pick, not worth it IMO. I'd rather have grabo and have a shot at playoffs.
That's stupid. Since it looks like this downward spiral will connue.
If his demands don't change, your losing him for nothing.
Would rather get the first, most likely be used for a top-end player.
For all those top end players that are available? Because a 20-30 pick is a massive deal breaker?
You got to MAKE the playoffs. At this rate, this team is heading for ninth or possibly 10th.
A loss to Washington tommorow and Toronto is screwed…And you got to sell whatever you can.
Bob Mckenzie said the Rangers could put Wolski on waivers as soon as tomorrow. If they do I hope the Leafs claim him.
unless they have a deal to take on salary (Nash) there is not really any point to putting Wolski on waivers, but for a free rental I wouldn't mind the Leafs making a claim.
Ya mckenzie said it's to free up salary so they can try to make a trade.
Don't know if brown is available anymore but if we're going after him, i'd want to grab hickey too. I think he could be a reclamation project. Hasn't done anything yet, but i think he could do well with a change of scenery.
deals i wouldnt mind seeing get done that make sense:
I think in a perfect world, lol, sure, but reality is all of those moves can't be made lol.
You know it is funny. I started to look at teams who seem to always have amazing goaltending like Phoenix and it does not matter who is in net they seem to make the guy look like a god. I mean Bryz looked like a top 5 goalie in Phoenix. In Philly he just not playing well at all. Mike Smith last year on Tampa looked god awful suddenly on Phoenix the guy looks like he could challenge for a Vezina this or next year. My point is the system makes an average goalie great and it makes me wonder if Ronnies run and gun system could be at fault.
I don't think the run and gun style is Ronnie's preferred style. As a coach you gotta look at what you have and think what the best style is for your team and with the fast smaller team we have you can't really play a defensive bored control game you gotta beat teams with the skill and speed game but u can't deny we'd be better with a better goalie because gus and Reimer haven't been cutting it so far although I though he played good against sj
Wolski traded to the panthers. So that is off the table.
I think Hickey almost has bust status, and it's not worth acquiring him if we already have gardiner and percy. Although he would be a good investment if he can get a lot better playing with the leafs and marlies, and if he does not become better then gardener or percy than we can trade him for more then what we gave up for him.
yep that makes more sense than a waive, nice return for a guy they were trying to get rid of. (Vernace, 2013 3rd for Wolski)
