I agree a local kid would be best.


So out of curiosity, who would you two have given up to acquire Jones and O'Brien?

Well I agree with you but those other two seem to think Gillis should have been in on this package!

Jones sure, but we'd probably be looking at giving up Burrows.

I don't know what else Colorado would want from us.

Who's talking O'Brien?

As for who I would give up for Jones? Anything, how about a reprieve from hearing the constant stories of the day Arachnid finally made it over the rainbow and found his beloved Pom poms

^ Burrows for three goal Jones? I don’t think so! Not sure I’d give up Booth!

Yeah, Spidey and his harebrained schemes. :roll:

Burrows seems a tad steep.

Not that I'd be adverse to trading Burrows for the right player/pick... quite the contrary.

What sucks is that I have a soft spot for the biter because he's scored some of the biggest goals in franchise history... and I received a shiny new Burrows jersey as a gift last summer (I wanted Kesler).

Spidey apparently also has a soft spot. On the top of his head.

Messier issues terse statement cutting all tie with the NYR. Feels snubbed that he didn't get the coaching job.

Maybe COL was insistent on turfing O'Brien, that's why Gillis has no interest!

Tanguay is a ligitimate asset who was stuck in the duldrum that is Calgary. To match their offer we'd have to give up something decent.

I'm just trying to figure out why you and Spidey think Gillis was asleep on this one. Especially after the horrendous season Jones had!

Nice to see he's still all about the team.

Well I mean he should have gotten that job?

He has no coaching experience whatsoever but he was good friends with Gary Coleman.

Yikes, hope the forced move to Cowtown doesn't drive SOB and Jonesie to drink. ;)

TSN is reporting that Letang has turned down $56M over 8 years. Apparently he's worth more than $7M?

I really don't know who is going to give him more than that.

Do you think Sid stares at his pecker in the shower?

There has to be a reason... who turns down 58m and asks for 63?
BTW, NOT A FLAME ... JUST AN OBSERVATION ... :P
