What makes a thread "official" - I was thinking of starting a Salvador appreciation thread and was hoping it could be the official one.

A. This isn't the 2012 post season

B. I think that thread closes rather quickly after the mods realize you and Mike Brown are the only Salvador Appreciators.

Kesler is held together with duct tape - I have no interest in him and I think there's some element of buyer beware on him.

Yes and he has a ton of off the ice baggage to boot over the years in Vancouver. He's a guy I think some team that trades for him will think they got a steal and end up regretting it.

Oh yeah.  Steve Sullivan was the blockbuster of the year.  Didn't we give up a 2nd rounder for him?? God, hopefully a 5th or something

 

 

It was a 6th.

 

Actually it was a 7th lol...which is incidentally why we had to trade for the 7th at the draft to pick up Anthony.

How is this possible? They would use Kesler as a 3C?

I guess they could always shift him as a winger. It'd probably cost something like Maatta to get it done

Zero chance they include Maatta. Maybe Megna.

Pittsburgh has a ton of D - they are keeping Maatta, but I could see them moving Simon Despres in a deal for Kesler.  For some reason he hasn't made the Penguins full-time despite being pretty darn good and he's a guy the Canucks would like, I imagine.

Don't get your hopes up. Lou will probably end up getting something like Scott Gomez or Mike Cammallerri.

 

What's wrong with Cammalleri?

I am beyond impressed with Maatta. Kessler seems to be an odd fit in Pitt.

Where to start should be the question. He'd be up at the end up the year and he's to expensive and inconsistent, we don't score goals as it is, adding an already inconsistent player to our roster wouldn't help. He'd be a Brunner for us.

just read this on Hockey30 (from Quebec) 

 

 

- Le nom de Martin Brodeur circule de plus en plus au Minnesota.

 

- Les journalistes couvrant les activités du Wild sont d'avis que Brodeur serait une bien meilleure solution que Ryan Miller puisqu'il va coûter bien moins cher à obtenir.

- Ajoutons aussi le fait que deux des enfants de Brodeur fréquentent l'école Shattuck-St. Mary’s qui est située dans la région du Minnesota.

- Évidemment, Brodeur devra accepter de lever sa clause de non-échange, mais on raconte qu'il serait excité de rejoindre les rangs du Wild

 

Pretty much saying that Brodeur's name is circulating a lot in Minnesota and that both of his kids is going to Shattuck-St. Mary right now in Minnesota and that he'd be excited to join them.

I'd be excited if he joined them too

Marty isn't worth anything, I mean cmon he's done after this year or next and his play has slipped dramatically. However if the Wild did give us something of value for Broduer, I might forgive them for the pillaging of Zach Parise.

Marty the player is not worth much, if anything at this point.  I am just wondering if his name is worth something to some.

 

Maybe I am remembering this wrong but didn't word come out that when Chicago was interested in him back in 2012 off-season that a good chunk of it was to sell tons of jerseys with his name on it?

That seems crazy to me, but I guess chicago can afford to give no fvcks about drafting players for a while.

I think Marty's name definitely carries weight - as does Jagr's (although he definitely has more left in the tank than Marty at this point)

 

I've said it before - there are plenty of stupid GMs in this league.  I seriously think Lou could get something relatively substantial for him.

Is there any realistic situation in which we get Maatta and they get Jagr?

Also, does anyone remember Gionta crushing that kid in the opener in Pittsburgh? No one ever said a word about it, no highlights or anything. I'm beginning to think I imagined it

Sure... The situation where you envision it in a drug-enduced hallucination.

About the response I expected. I'd include Gelinas or something.

This ain't madden.

 

Just throw this year's 5th, 6th, and the 3rd round pick from 2018 in there, that'll persuade em to do it.

@TGfirandice: Jagr said again today he doesn't want to be traded. Hasn't discussed it with Lamoriello, though.

@TGfireandice: Jagr said if Lamoriello did try to trade him, though, teams should talk to him first "to make sure I want to go there."

@TGfireandice: Jagr doesn't have no-trade, but suggested he might not go to some teams. "I have no contract. I have one month left."
