To me Toews is no different now than in training camp. He belonged here then. When did Adam Pelech become this top 6 mainstay? Easy decision...
- kindlyrick

No arguments there and I think that Toews has played so well that he's pretty much forced Lou's hand here.

Like Vukota and I were chatting about above, I'm most intrigued to see what happens with Pelech in the long-run. If they keep him around as the 7th guy or ship him out for a late-round pick or something.

Stone would be a great get from what every thing I read says.
- niteislander



Honestly think Stone will get signed by Ottawa. Duchene I don't see wearing a Sens jersey next year.

Trotz said the same in a recent interview that Toews made the team in camp. He said that Lou said b/c of his injury last year it would be smart to send him to B-port to gain some confidence to start the season and then call him up. He even alluded to the fact that he did not really agree with it at the time.. but Lou has so much experience with things like this...etc.

Kinda said the same thing about signing all these 4th line buys too. At first I didn't understand why we were signing and trading for guys like Leo, Martin, Kuhnackle, but now that we have them here in the room... etc.

Fortunately the question is both intriguing AND superfluous.

Pretty much what the "Dumb Scouts" said about him, un-coachable.

looking at guys who have not signed as of yet an extension my insane wish list would be...

1. Offer sheet Mathews.. Either we get a monster or we crush the Leafs cap situation..win/win.
2. Joe Pavelski- I assume he is going no where but he would be a HUGE pick up for this team.
3. Stone- not a center but don't care
4. Duchene
5. I guess u could go the old guy route with a spezza, Eric Staal, etc.

I kinda feel like Lou will do something we would never expect. We will ship 4 prospects for Barkov or something and I will cry with joy.

- niteislander




Barkov is a great player and would elevate us to the next level. I would happily give up Bellows, Aho, Sorokin, Ho-Sang and the flames 2nd for Barkov. He is under contract for a few more years at a very resonable cap hit.

I just don’t see a spot for him and if he’s just gonna be a 7th or 8th dman, let him go elsewhere. Especially with the blue chips coming up for the isles in the next few years. I’d rather see a vet dman take that 7th role.

Not really. Barkov is a legit 80+ point #1 C with a Selke level game.

I’m a huge fan of Barkov, but giving away Bellows, Aho, Ho sang, Sorokin and a second??? I don’t love that trade personally. For Sorokin alone, i don’t love this trade. ESPECIALLY when the isles are winning, and the 1C is Barzals

No i was saying i don’t make that blockbuster trade when the isles are doing well right now. Sorokin could be a franchise goalie and Bellows could be a 30 goal scorer.....add to that Aho who has shown he has NHL ability, Ho sang and the second, and i think you’re making a bad asset for asset trade. The 1C role is spoken for on the isles...

Barkov is never, ever going anywhere until he's a free agent. One of the absolute best centers in the league.

That is a lot of "coulds" for a guy who would fill in perfectly with barzal in a 1A 1B situation. He would also move Nelson down to the 3rd line.

I would have agreed with you before the season started. But, now, i don’t see the need to purge 5 assets for a player when not only are they winning, but can sign a player like Matt Duschene without giving up all those assets.
