The Official 2014 Trade Deadline Thread

I will say though, it appears as if the Rangers make the ECF, that 2nd this year turns into another 1st. So it's possible if the Rangers win two rounds this becomes a 1st in 2014 and 2015 for MSL

 

So it would be the number 26 pick in a weak draft and a who knows pick next year in what they say is a top heavy draft.

 

If you want the Rangers to lose out in this deal, everything that you can imagine has to go wrong for them next year.

With all the garbage Sather gets for being "him" and pro-active, he's fleeced his share of teams, too. 

 

Lamoriello also does not have the organizational assets. You have to give to get and you have to have to get. The Rangers roster was set up for this type of impact deal. But it also shows that you can be a Cup contender/playoff team AND trade a upcoming FA and get better.

To be fair, St. Louis only wanted to go to one team and forced Yzerman's hand.  He still got back a decent haul all things considering

Or as we like to say 90-91 Leafs it

If Tampa is smart they are looking to unload Callahan now.   He is made of papermache and will increasingly show diminishing returns.

 

Its a pretty big IF.

 

i guess there was discussion about this being a 3 way trade cause tampa were not that interested in Callahan but we'll see. Kind of a risky move to make that trade if you dont want him and without having a next move

well for one, Lundqvist save % is already way down from his career norms.

I'm saying Hindenberg wrong.  Lunqvist basically has to turn into Marty next year, they would have to have no reliable back up, they would have to have at least two defensemen as well as Nash miss major time, and St. Louis' production would have to fall off a cliff.

Ugh why did St. Louis have to go baby his way into a blue shirt...This is awful. He was pretty much my favorite player. 

 

Better question. Why did Steve Yzerman lose his balls and let this baby dictate to him? This whole thing makes Yzerman look bad. Should have laughed in his face, told him to grow up or go home and then inform ownership and have them both laugh.

Why would Tampa losing and the Rangers winning be good for us? We're a lot closer to the Rangers in the standings.

 

I don't think we catch the Rangers now.  

 

I think Tampa will take a nose dive, which is why I said this was good for us.

Well I guess the thinking is that the 1st and 2nd offset the difference in player between Callahan and St. Louis while still allowing the Lightning to try and win this year

 

I think Tampa is in for a rude awakening.   St. Louis made Levcaviliar and Stamkos look great.   Tampa is going to struggle to win the rest of the season.

Also, as expected St. Louis took multiple high picks to be moved. I don't have time to scroll through the thread but can any of our prospect guys reiterate the value of those picks based on the draft classes and whether they think the NYR overpaid? I mean, they get St. Louis for a season and a half.

I don't necessarily see this as a big win for the rangers yet... You never know what losing your captain does for a team in a playoff race. No doubt St. Louis adds scoring and leadership in his own right but I'll wait to see how this affects the team overall.

This is a long shot but does anyone have a text alert service that's free and will give me trade alerts? I have a dumb phone (can't trust myself to not drain the battery if my phone could play games have an iPod touch for that.) and I'd like to know if anything is going on at work

 

Just keep visiting this site, when you can't get to the site anymore this means it is flooded with activity about a Brodeur trade :)
