In response to TheGuyWithDaThing's comment:
I agree with Wensink on this one.
Nobody here is a GM or a player (at least I wouldn't think so).
So unless we are simply talking about the past, aren't we always just speculating? Why is it different when people say the Bruins need to fire Geoff Ward? Or that Khudobin needs more playing time moving forward? Or how much money the Bruins should be dropping on players? Or whether or not the Bruins should bring back the "skating clown"?
Frankly, it's all we do. It's fun. There's no reason to put people down for putting on their GM caps for a while.
When you're a kid, you always grew up wanting to be a pro hockey player.
Now that we're all grown ups and that ship has sailed, we can only hope to be GM, so we speculate.
You are free to post or not to post or to read or not to read this thread.
If it's fun to speculate about trades, why is it so hard to understand why it would be fun to keep track of speculative trades.
IMO there's a LOT of difference between threads talking about TOI, coaching decisions, firing coaches, backyard rinks, whether a restaurant treats a fan respectfully or not, can you id the NHL player's baby picture and etc. etc. Those threads have to do with facts, stats, actual events, actual waiters, actual backyards and etc.
There is a a fantasy team thread.
I don't understand the speculation on trades. I honestly and completely don't. I don't understand sky diving, spelunking, bull fighting or all that stuff my wife has in her make up case. I don't understand it so I make fun of it, like those triangle sponge things my wife has in her make up case. She also has some kind of weird scissor thing in there.
Sure she might have fun putting on her make up with all that stuff, but I don't. It has nothing to do with hockey, same as these speculation trades.
Another speculation trade comes up, I'll note it.
I see another weird thing in that make up kit tool box my wife has, I'll also make note of it - like those little paint brushes she has.
It's fun. More fun than you have speculating about trades.
