Now THAT would be a bold move!!!
I'm not against trading Kess either.
Heard Ferraro talking about injuries the other day and he stated that your body never quite performs the way it did before.
Well, Kessler has had 3 surgeries since his phenomenal performance of 2010/11.
I'm pretty sure he has a NTC,and I would love to have him prove me wrong,but i think we've seen his best already.

Hey Listen, whoever you are...have you not noticed? Five Nine is back. No, not the 5:00 to 9:00 dope smoking Blobby Mac shift after working 9:00 to 5:00. The Conachers, Gallaghers, Schroeders are taking over the league like gangbusters.

You cats have got to stop using this lame argument. A lot of teams have great success late in the first round, outside the first round. See St. Louis, see the Bruins. When you have Mike Gillis no. 1 fan Tony Gallagher slagging his drafting record, you know it's bad. Stop it Pot, you're killing me here.

We have bagged one here and there Danny Boi, but the record shows that Gillis has taken his blows in the drafting department. Your good buddy Tony the Skull Gallagher has gone on record and stated so.

Dream on Rd it is apparently what you do best. If you want reality though you should read Doc's post. His idea of Matthias, Petrovic and Clemmensen makes a lot more sense. Although I would prefer Shore instead of Matthias. Your choices only meet one of Gillis' requirements while Doc's meet all three.

Well given how well JS has played(albeit in a small sample size), isn't it fair to say that his first round drafting hasn't been that bad at all? With stumpy, JS, Jensen and now Gaunce...that's a pretty damn good looking crop, if you ask me. The only one who you can almost write off is Yann Sauve and he was only a 2nd.
I think it's time for you to maybe see that he's not quite as bad as you make him out to be. Sure he's screwed up on a few trades but overall I'd have to rate him in the top to middle of the pack as far as GMs go.

I was for trading Kesler after the Finals, as his stock would never get higher than it was. As it turned out, he hasn't been healthy since the San Jose series.

I do take Ferraro's point with a grain of salt - tell him to talk to Selanne about coming back from injuries. If Kesler is rehabbing the right way (which it seems like he is), I have far more confidence in his ability to bounce back. Of course, the problem is with his style of play its only a matter of time before he has another slew of injuries.

I like the way the team is right now and see no rush to trade Luongo. If these guys can keep the level of play up I see no reason to trade away a talent such as Luongo for a few parts that may or may not work the way we want.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Raymond- Kesler-Higgins
Booth-Schroeder-Hansen
Weise-Lappy-Kassian
Malhotra,
Kassian can move up or down the lines and Schroeder can fill in at 2nd or 3rd line C.

We have a very strong line up on our D with
Hamhuis-Edler
Garrison-Bieksa
Ballard-Tanev
With Alberts and Barker in the press box.

In goal wow the top duo in the league
Schneider
Luongo

If for some reason we begin to soil the sheets then cast about for a good trade. Unless of course Florida offers us Bjugstad and Petrovic or Washington calls us with Forsberg and Carlson. Then all bets are off.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Schroeder is 22.

Hodgson and Kassian were both younger than that when you first wrote them off.

Just sayin.

I like this lineup although it will drive Doc crazy. Raymond has a better head for the game than Booth or Higgins and is a much better passer than either of them or Kesler. Kassian would work with this 2nd line as well if be and Burr were flipped. Kass is a decent passer and has a better head than Booth. He is also very good along the wall for a young guy.

It would be like a dull toothache around here if it weren't for my writings, Blobby Beer Bellies.
