    Trade proposal

    Post by jamvan on Fri Sep 05, 2008 12:55 pm

    With all the talk that we have a log jam at forward, would you do the following deal?

    To the Islanders: McCammond, Schubert and Nikulin

    TO Ottawa: Trent Hunter and Blake Comeau

    I don't know enough about Hunter and Comeau to judge. I'm pretty sure Hunter would be a nice addition but that's all I can really say.

    Ok, this is a good one Jam. I was going to go ahead and say Comrie and Comeau for those guys, but then I checked NHL numbers and realized that Hunter is signed at 2Million/per until 2012-13. I would love to get him for that price for sure, the only problem there is that it is such a sweet deal for the Islanders, and he puts up enough points to warrant that money, there is no way they'd let him go, IMO.

    I would love Comrie back, but then we'd have to re-sign him next year when he's a UFA, and I don't think we could do that, and we'd lose Schuby and Nikulin for nothing really. So, obviously that wouldn't be worth it.

    So in the end....I would trade for Hunter in a heartbeat, but Comeau doesn't seem to be all that special to me, and he's an RFA next year. I would rather keep Schuby and Nikulin than acquire him. I don't want to see McAmmond go, but it's inevitable...

    We could probably trade Deano and Schuby for Hunter and keep Nikulin...or Deano and Nikulin and keep Schuby...

    This was a good question. Again, this doesn't really solve our problem at forward either...I'd rather try to acquire a D along with Hunter and lose those 3 than acquiring 2 Forwards for 2 Forwards and a Prospect...

    From an asset side of things, there is no question that I would do that trade.
    But what does acquiring two NHL ready players do to solve our log jjam issue?

    When there is a trade, it will be for prospects and picks.

    Think: McAmmond, Schubert, Nikulin, and Glass to VAN for Schneider and Grabner
    something like that...

    Other than the obvious (Gaborik) Comrie is my #1 preferred deadline addition to this team. He was a factor in the Cup run and, most importantly, the guys on this team loved him. Assuming he isn't another one with off-ice *issues* I would love to have him back.

    Didn't Murray want Comrie back but was handcuffed due to money. If that was the case i would think he would be a great addition and could move up to the 1st line if need be.

    Great trade proposal. You know how much I wanted Hunter last year.

    I would do this in a heartbeat. Great price for Hunter too.

    I knew there was a player who you were advocating for, but I couldn't remember his name. It must have been Hunter.

    The more I thought about this, the more I think it's a great trade.
    Good call Jam!
    Call Murray on his GM hotline and get this moving!
