How is someone who couldn't wait to(and probably still would) give Sutter the axe wise? :noclue:


never would get rid of sutter but i think he should count his blessings that larry robinson is an assistant coach and works with the d. this team would of folded a long time ago without him.

Gio will wake up, he has to. I don't want to give him the boot yet, and I don't think we have any reason to. Let him play and see if his stick and skates and sense comes back to him, because I know it will, just like I knew Patty would be there in time.

elias has always been a second half player and even though he has a slow start he has 7 gwg. i'd always take quality over quantity.

They are, but if Brian Burke keeps whining, you might see some changes. I think Havlat will be around for the taking for awhile, people aren't going to knock down the doors for him in the current environment.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised in the next CBA if they completely changed that rule, but Havlat is only signed through next year, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a huge deal in the '09 offseason.

I don't think we should trade Gio but if I had to trade him for anyone why not Corey Perry on the Ducks, he's very promising. We would probably have to throw in a draft pick and pay half of Gio's contract for that trade to happen though.

It won't happen because Gionta makes 4M next season and that will push the ducks' cap hit over 53M for next season while next year's cap hit cannot exceed the current max cap hit. Unless we take Schneider in your deal, otherwise, the league itself won't approve that trade.

Instead of trading Gionta maybe try getting him a true center, Sergei Fedorov may be a savy acquisition. Andy Greene and a 3rd would probably get it done.

While I love Fedorov, he's unfortunately finished. And again, Columbus has to make the playoffs this year - they can't be trading off Sergei.

The trade deadline will be largely quiet this year. Almost every team is in playoff contention and there aren't that many expiring contracts that will get moved.

Zajac would be a waste on the 4th line and Federov is ripe for a sharp decline. Not a bad idea for a rental player, but you would be giving up a good part of our defensive future for him.

As for the topic at hand, I'm not sure if our offense is a solvable problem right now when our number one problem is a questionable transitional game. Trading Gionta while his market value is high makes some good sense, but I wouldn't give that up for merely a rental player. It's going to take Gio, plus something in order to get anyone of value anyway, so I have a hard time seeing it.

What the hell is this?! This is from someone on another forum.

The XM Satalite Radio report was from half an hour ago and is an actual trade rather than speculation by the Vancouver Province. And Rasumussen was a mistake , it is now said it is unknown at the moment who else if anyone would be going to Vancouver with Elias....could just be Elias. The deal is NOT done and more could be added/changed but it could go down very soon.

To VAN: Elias, possibly more

To NJ: Morrison , Ohlund , draft pick


Please, someone, assure me that this isn't true.

I wouldn't worry about this to much. Somebody from NHL line or whatever that site was called probably posted this. No way Lou would give up Elias for that duo, especially when one of the players was here before and probably never wanted to be here in the first place.

Trade not true. Elias has a NTC and he played tonight. I doubt he will be going anywhere and if it was for those players it would be a disaster! Devils do not need Morrison back here.
