    PC's never gone big, at least not with trades.

     

     




    Red, you're exactly right. PC made all the right deals to secure a Cup in 2011 yet we still have a few posters crying because he didn't sell the farm for Rick Nash. Some people can't see a winning formula even when it's right in front of their face. Neil Smith told my buddy that building a Cup winner is like producing a blockbuster film. While it's great to have Jack Nicholson and Brad Pitt type actors to be the stars, you'll still need some lesser name guys to play the mailman or bartender #3. All of the roles need to be filled in order to be a success. I thought the analogy made a lot of sense.

    The Kessel, Horton and the Ference/Kobasew trade(s) were BIG in my view becuase they are still currently paying off and helped bring a cup. Now if you had said "blockbuster" then I would agree.


    Yeah, blockbuster is more what I meant.

    Kovalchuck is and has provided a boost for New Jersey. Richards and Nash, the jury is still out but so far not really what the NY hype machine anticipated. Hossa trade didn't do the trick until he signed as a free agent with Chicago. Heatley didn't help San Jose nor is he really helping Minnesota.

    Trying to think of what blockbuster mid-season trade made an impact since the Roy to Colorado ...hmmm

    Brandon Dubinsky would be a nice fit. Pretty sure he was a healthy scratch for last nights game. Jarmo will probably clean house and load up on more draft picks..I like Dubinsky's game and would be worth sending a package of draft picks with none higher than a second round.



    He was the centerpiece in the Nash deal.  No way does he get moved for second round picks.

    Or at all for that matter.

    How about the L.A. Kings acquiring Richards and Carter ?

    To be clear San, I'm not saying it's always a bad idea to get these guys. I'm just saying it isn't always good.

    No I was just thinking out loud if "Bigger or Blockbusters" work or not. Wasn't criticizing your thought process, just trying to get more numbers of trades.

    I had to appreciate the moves that Sinden made to get Poulin and Propp. They weren't blockbuster but Harry saw that the 90' Bruins could go somewhere with some help. Yah it is a gamble for sure and fun to talk about.

    San, I also liked it the year they went after Gonchar. I was crushed at the results of that one.

    Yah Sergei folded against the Shabs crushing forecheck in the last 4 games of that debacle. I remember after Murray scored the game winner of game 3, I felt so confident.

    Blaahhccck freakin series!

    Agree Columbus has three first rounders in the upcoming draft a second rounder isn't going to impress them much.

    while i agree in this case that dubinsky probably won't be moved, i'm not sure i agree with the line of thinking. Brand new GM for CBJ, not sure the moves of his predecessor really have much baring on what he will do with players in the future.

    PS.  I dont see foligno and dubi going anywhere.  Both young abd guys to build around.  Iggy could come here only if dk or horton goes the other way.  Id be fine with either being dealt for him.

    Shupe you know as well as I that none of the top 6 will be dealt.  Just ain't happening...PC is going to stay with this core as he should.

    Agree completely.  I love iggy.  Think hes an amazing talent that just keeps on performing.  i think he will be dealt to an eastern conference team with philly nyr and pitt being the front runners.

    6 more weeks until trade deadline, can't come soon enough.  Bourque and Johnson may turn out to be the answers, who knows!

    I have a couple buddies who live down there and are huge Flyer fans.  I don't think they could stomach Holmgren making another huge deal considering how things have turned out so far.  What a disaster.  Holmgren is in a really tough situation, I think he needs to ride this out with what he has.
