In Response to 5 Trades I want to See
[QUOTE]1. Steve Stamkos to Toronto for Luke Schenn, Nazim Kadri, Clarke McArthur, 1st round pick in 2012 although i would hate for him to be in our division, he is a big time player that deserves to be in a hockey market. 2. Martin Brodeur to Detroit for a 2012 3rd round pick Martin's last yr shouldnt be on a team that picked 4th overall, Does NJ has enough to make the playoffs?..i believe so, but they dont have enough to win it all, Go for the CUP Marty 3. Ales Hemsky to anyone Seriously, if i hear another yr of Rumors that he is getting traded i might cry, all day 4. Chris Kelly and Zack Hamill to New York Islanders for a 2nd round pick in 2012 Is that all Hamill and Kelly can fetch?....yes....Zack needs a fresh start, and although Kelly had a great playoff run with us, i feel the third line LW spot is better served for Caron or Spooner....it also takes 2.1 miilion off our cap ...the 2012 draft is very deep, a pick in the 31-38 range will be very valuable 5. Jordan Stall plus for Iginla Why would both teams do this?, very simple, Calgary needs to get younger, getting Stall would give them a new face for the franchise and start on the retool stage rather then rebuild, and Pittsburgh needs an elite winger to play with Crosby, who better the Iginla

I love these posts, dont agree with any of the trades, like where your heads at though..no way Iginla or Brodeur leave, both face of the franchises..I agree that Staal is very good, better than most think, almost too good defensivly where it hurts his offensive output.
I'll chime in with 5 of my own:
Spezza to Flames for picks/prospects: iginla needs a center, multi talented, slick passer whos passion has been questioned. something tells me playing next to Iginla would be just the kick in the pants this kid needs.
Alfredsson to Red Wings for Mccollum-Fippula/Picks: I know, there goes my face of the franchise argument but lets face it, Ottawa is rebuilding needs a good young goalie, Detroit has Howard and Alfie just belongs on the Wings.
Lecavalier to Habs for Gomez/picks: Stamkos will sign, will be captain and it will be HIS team. Vinny is the french player Habs fans dream of. Perfect fit there.
Weiss to Leafs for Gustavsson/ picks/prospects. Kessel needs a center, Weiss needs a change of venue. Weiss, much like Horton is a much better player than his time in Florida would suggest. the Monster can battle it out with Clemmensen
for good goalie on a bad team.
Not a trade but would like to see Selanne sign with Winnipeg and Modano in Minnesota...I'm dating myself.
