    Florida definitely sellers as well in the Eastern Conference as for the Western Conference willing to make moves for a scorer and a solid back liner to shore up their defense St. Louis, Columbus, Calgary, LA, Minnesota and Colorado have to buy to get into the playoffs so they must sell something that has worth.

    I like Penner or Kaberle, asking price should not be too bad.

    Say Chiarelli moved Paille out to a team that needed a PK specialist then Boston grabbed Penner the Bruins would be over the cap -$321,942 so another body would have to go too bring in Penner. Don't know if Chiarelli wants to move two bodies out to get one (sounds like watching "mobsters" on biography channel).

    You might need to go cheaper on the winger or Dman that you want unless Ryder were passed along because of the price tag. I'm with you Crowls on getting another good player in here that would be more consistent for Bergeron and Krejci but it will be tricky is all.

    Penner and Phillips

    Edmonton likely would want our 1st rounder and a player.  Wheeler?

    Phillips for Stuart and a 2nd rounder. 

    Dump Ryder anywhere for cap relief even if it means throwing a mid round pick in. 

    In my opinion it is a lot of draft picks but we have them to burn.  Lets make a run at it this year.

    Based on what we have seen from the past few trade deadlines , since the cap came in, there most likely won't be much of anything on trade deadline. Hope folks aren't too disappointed. July 1st is turning into a more mover & shaker time than the Feb trade deadline.

    Trade Ryder and a 2nd to leafs 4 Kaberle
    Trade Wheeler Stuart and our 1st and a prospect if need be for Hemsky and Penner
    Keep Savy on LTIR till playoffs start
                     lucic krecji horton
                     hemsky savy penner
                     rechhi bergy marchand
                     seguin campbell thornton
                          chara/kaberle
                          seids/boychuk
                          ference/kampfer
                           mcquaid
    If Savy doesnt get back then put seguin in his place. Probably a pipe dream but if we want a real shot i think they have to make a couple of moves, but who knows, they are doing alright so far. I realize hemsky has had alot of injuries but i think he is the real deal when right and could really help this team if he is really available

    Trades can cause too much disruption. The B's have struggled with "chemistry"  as Claude shuffled his lines. Right now Bergie's kine is steady and taking advantage of Recchi's smarts; The 4th line looks better with Wheeler, and Would definitely improve with Paille in p[lace of Thornton; Kreji's line with Lucic and Seguin is just starting to meld, so give it time. That leaves a replacement for Savard between Ryder and Horton. My vote would be Hamill. He is playing well in Providence; he knows Julien's system; he fits in/under the cap; as a playmaker he can help both wings. The only two replacements that could add value and not disruption would be for Thornton and Boychuck. Possibly Ryder because Caron or Arneil could fit in with Hamill.

    Re: My Best Eklund: NHL Sellers?

    Phillips would be an ideal pickup.  He would be a shut down guy that could steal some minutes away from Chara(which is huge in the playoffs). 
    Chara/K
    Seids/Phillips
    Boy/Stuart(McQ)  One would be dealt to Ottawa I would assume.

    I would make it spicey and offer
    Stuart/Wheeler/Ryder 1st rounder.
    Phillips/Alfie

    I would be happy if the B's could get Phillips.  Defensemen don't get much more steady and reliable.

    Penner's name has been thrown out in a few threads, but I can't understand why.  The Oilers gave up three picks to get him.  Contract status notwithstanding, he had 32 goals last year and it only 27 years old.  That seems like someone a team would want to keep, not move.

    Only because you started this thread Crowls will I discuss trades.
    The fans on this board would have a field day with Penner the same way they're having with Horton.
    He's big ,soft and you know Bruin fans...  they all want to see Neely again.
    I like Philips but again fans should not expect big offensive numbers from the guy.  He's very steady and not a liability in your own zone. 
    Fans here would go on a frenzy thinking they got an offensive powerhouse the same way they pegged Siedenberg this summer getting 15-20 goals .
    With this being said I'de take him in a heart beat but at what cost ?  Sens want to rebuild and want picks and/or a prospect. 2nd rounder ?
    The same goes for Kaberle, depending on the cost he might fit what the Bruins are looking for and I bet he's better defensively in a Bruins system with on his side a guy like Chara or Siedenberg.
    Burke is the problem with this deal.  I'm sure he wants to stick it to the Bruins for failed trades on his end.

    You're right about Burke.It's not beyond him to put the Leafs even further in the hole by taking less from another team than he could get from Boston for Kaberle,simply out of spite.I guess we should be glad he lets his ego get in the way of making the right deal sometimes.Like he said of himself shortly after the Kessel trade,"I'm a home run hitter,I swing for the fences".I laughed out loud when I heard it.It's like he's the only one not noticing that he's made the Leafs worse since his arrival.I'm happy as long as he can keep up this charade for another 2-1/2 months.

    His "Homerun" mentality is the only reason he didn't trade Kaberle when his NTC was not in effect before season start.  His asking price in return was so ridiculously high.
    We all know PC wants (wanted) Kaberle and Burke played hardball. Good point Dez this time around he might do it out of spite for less than the Bruins would offer. Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    Burke screwed up big time. He could have had Kessel @ the draft of 09 when they got Caron. Apparently Chia offered Kessel and the Bruins 1st round pick (25th) for Kaberle and the Leafs 1rst round pick (7th Kadri) and Burkey declined last minute), To only give up 2 1st's and a 2nd round pick for Phil. If he could only go back in time.

    Burke wanted TO fans to know he was a gun slinger and sometimes you get caught in backfire and thats what happened there.  

    Did I like Phil? Yes I thought he complimented the Bruins team very well. If it werent for greed and ego, who knows what could have been. But Im happy with the picks and the way it worked out for the Bruins.

    Remember Burke said he will not ask Kaberle to waive his no trade clause and if he had the Kessel deal to do over again he would do it in a heartbeat.LOL

    Sorry NAS you are right. I think Philips would be a good addition to the Bruins but at what cost? Maybe they should try a bigger deal with Ottawa and ask for Fisher aswell. What would it take to get Fisher and Philips on the Bruins?

    Fisher would be a great fit for the Bruins IMO.

    For Fisher, you have to give up a top prospect.  Like Caron or Colborne.  Forget it. 

    For Philips, he could be had for someone like Mark Stuart/Andrew Ference and a high pick.  2nd rounder.

    Has anyone heard anymore on this?  Is anyone else reporting it?

    EDIT : It appears others are reporting it but none of the others report it as probable as far as I've seen, but rather report the B's amongst other teams who are also interested.  END EDIT

    If this Chris Phillips deal does not go any further then I will officially stop defending Eklund.  In reality I think I have already given up on him.  In the past I have always said that as long as he believes what he is reporting to be the true state of discussions then I would let it pass because that is what a "rumor blogger" is supposed to do.  It is becoming more and more difficult for me to believe that all of the deals he reports as e4 (probable I think) are falling apart at the last minute.  When something is probable, I think it should happen more then 50% of the time.

    I think Florida has a good PMD that we'd be interested in. 
    Dennis Wideman - 6g 19a = 25pts, and a -17.
    Maybe straight up for Horton.
    Deal or No Deal ?????

    i don't think you touch the defense...great young players that are part of the best d-corps in the nhl, why mess with that. their best asset on offense is that they are balanced- not relying on any one guy to carry the load, this to me is a winning formula. any trade made better be worth it- and i don't see anything that is worth screwing with a winning formula. teams win cups, players don't win cups.
