Thought we could use a thread to break down the trades from other teams and from the sens. Itís looking like itís going to be a big one.



As mentioned on TSN with the Grabner trade who netted a 2nd rounder and a prospect, this could likely be the trade that sets the market.

The good news for sens fans is that this rental netted more than a 2nd round pick. So we should be able to get some firsts or high prospects from a lot of our guys if they are traded. Iím looking at smith right now. Especially if itís calgary.

As I stated in the other thread I expect some high end prospects might be coming our way. Weíll see.

I woke up this morning to the radio. They were talking about how Brassard, Hoffman, Karlsson, Smith, Pageau, Ryan and Oduya could all be gone. I had a gut-sinking feeling when I heard that. I suppose it is the feeling of reality setting in.

Honestly they could avoid all of this if they just did something with Ryan's contract. All they needed to do was move it (somehow), find someone for Karlsson to play with, and bring in a top-six forward. I think selling all these guys is just an excuse for Melnyk to shed money.

I just don't see how they could think the team would have the same success by losing a possession-driving top-six forward, their depth forwards (Stalberg, Wingels), and a top-pairing defenceman and replace them with Thompson and Oduya. What scares me most about this is the fact that Dorion is leading the way here.

Of course it's about Melnyk shedding money. He said he would during his Winter Classic rant. If there wasn't a salary floor this would get uglier. Thankfully for The Euge McArthur's salary paid mostly by an insurance company counts towards the cap.

Don't trade Karlsson or Hoffman or Stone, all else are on the table, including the highly ineffective Brassard who I think can get a fair bit.

Highly ineffective?

Highly ineffective?

He's heated up recently, but his whole tenure here has been relatively underwhelming. Cash in those chips.

Brassard = Turris yet you call Brassard ineffective and mourn the loss of Turris ? I don't get it.

Agreed. Brassard's been very good this year and was great in the playoffs for us last year. I'd like to keep him as the perfect 2nd line centre behind Duchene.

We need to take on some salary or retain some.

I made my prediction yesterday that weíd be getting Sprong from Pittsburgh for brass (and then some) as Rutherford seems intent on making a big splash and heíll likely pay the price.

I really like Brassard but if we can get a 1st and Sprong then it may be worth it.

Iíd agree on stone, Hoffman and kalrsson. We can still retool if we keep those and bring in some nice pieces through trades and maybe try and sign or trade a second line C in the off season and do it right next year. We have some interesting young pieces we could be back to contending next year or the one after. But we lose kalrsson and our best wingers and we are looking at a straight up 4-5 year rebuild. (As other players will just leave(ie duchene)

I expect Melnyk will want to go hard after Hossa, maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder could get it done.
