Rumor has it Lou is asking about Sam Gagner? I'm a big fan of Sam Gagner and I'm about ready for him to go to a team that actually has a shot at the playoffs. Larsson + pick may even land him.

There's always been numerous rumours over the last two seasons involving his name. He would be a nice additiona I would say. Any source on Lou and the talks?

Sam Gagner isn't very good defensively, and is mostly gonna be in the 40-50 point range.  But he's pretty good in shootouts, and has plenty of talent.  I'd take him as a legit 3rd line center if we can get him.  I'd also ask about Hemsky if I'm Lou.

Wasn't he the player that had like 8 points in a game? Once it twice? I'd definitely take that.

No.   I wouldn't trade Larsson alone, let alone Larsson +picks.    Let him develop... please? 

 

TSN rumored Volchenkov for Brierre.   I could see something like that.  But I don't see us getting a younger guy with promise for what we can reasonably offer.

I'd love to pick up Gagner, but not for Larsson. :)

I'm would love gagner, but what could we conceivably trade? Mark Fayne and a defensive prospect? Don't know that that is worth Sam Ganger.

If you bring in gagner he would be our 3rd line center. Zajac and henrique are here long term. I would not trade Larsson or Merrill for a third line center, would much rather be patient and wait until the both develop into top pairing defensemen.

I think the Briere thing was speculation from the ledger's Randy Miller. I don't know if TSN is picking up on that.

In any event, as much as some people want to dump Volchenkov, I would not trade him for Briere, who is old, and who stinks. In fact, Volchenkov has actualky been very good this year.

Bottom line, we need younger players. If the idea is to clear up the log jam in defense, don't create another one at forward, but even worse in that you're adding someone else that you'll want to unload who has an NTC in Briere. If the idea is to actually make the team better in the process, go for a young impact forward. I'm not opposed to trading anyone on D, except for perhaps Gelinas who has a unique skill set, but go for someone like Evander Kane, Blake Wheeler if Larsson or Merrill is involved.

Can we please stop with this already.

Evening imagining trading Larsson, a quiet, hard working kid, for Yak, who has already shown major attitude problems, makes me crazy. Plus talk about another flight risk..

I like Gagner, although I would prefer David Perron.  Definitely wouldn't trade Larsson for either of them.
