I think they are trying hard with the Panthers....

Flyers are a strong possibility too. Do we want Schenn?



Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
Pending paper work and trade call, Clowe is a Ranger. NYR may not be done as the possibility of adding a D-man exists. #tradecentre


Ballard? ;)

Because the 6-shot first period against the Sharks after getting bitch-slapped by the Oilers two days prior wasn't enough?

Kind of reminds me of the Boston series:

1. Get slaughtered 8-1 in game 3 and come back in game 4 to lay a goose egg.
2. Get manhandled and slapped around in game 6 and come back home for game 7 to lay another.

TEAM Radio ‏@TEAM1040 27s
Gillis: Spoke with Clowe's agent. Felt Clowe wanted opportunity to go to East Coast. Geography was the "dictating" feature

Dan Murphy ‏@sportsnetmurph
#canucks talked contract extension with Ryane Clowe's camp. Gillis feels Clowe's biggest desire was to play on the east coast.


If that was the case, why bothered wasting time on him? :hmmm:

Perry Solkowski ‏@ctvperry
Gillis on trade deadline. "don't know if there will be much more activity when we get to tomorrow".

Apparently the NYR were willing to commit to an extension for Clow but the Canucks were not. This was perhaps the biggest reason he choose NYR. An extension is expected soon.

If that is the case, Clowe isn't very smart then. He could easily score a big contract this offseason here or somewhere else. Why rushing into an extension now? Unless he worried that he could not perform like he used to or he is afraid to get injured.

Yep that's exactly it, plus he figures he can demand a better price now, even after a crappy season.
Teams that think they are in the hunt are willing to overpay now.
After the season I bet the value of these tweeners goes way down, as there will be a bunch of 2nd & 3rd rounders available but not so much cap space, not to mention a bunch of recent buy-outs. (Ballard & Booth will also probably be available for cheap after getting bought out)

Smart move by Sather. Trade a multiple 40 goal scorer and add a 0 goal scorer and extend him...

What'll be smarter will be when you meet them in the playoffs and that 0 goal scorer annihilates James Reimers confidence by popping a half dozen by him in 4 games while T-O fails to score a single goal on Vezina trophy winner Hank Lundquist.

Then you'll know the meaning of experience my friend

Yeah, I'm sure a 0 goal scorer will score 6 goals in 4 games. Everyone knows Clowe is playing injured. They just traded a elite goal scorer for an injured 0 goal scorer.

The guy is a proven playoff stud. He's 4 hours closer to his screech and probably gonna be pissed off at the Cheeseburgler for fucking over Roberto....

I'd be worried...

In all seriousness, Clowe plays huge in the 2nd season whereas Gabby doesn't. Plus they added all that depth including John Moore which is a total win in my books
