What trades need to be made this NHL off-season?
Tue, June 17, 2008

The NHL's entry draft is the showcase event but make no mistake, the league's 30 GMs arrive in Ottawa this week for another reason as well.

Trade talk. "There's no doubt that a lot of teams are looking to do something," interim Toronto Maple Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher said Tuesday. "There will be a lot of dialogue." Some years the entry draft serves as a platform for several blockbuster moves. Other years, it's quiet.

Where the Sens are concerned, this will be their one opportunity to deal Spezza before the no-trade contract kicks in.

As for the Leafs, the ONLY trade commodities they have (that will bring back anything significant in return that is) are Kaberle and Toskala. No one will take the contracts of Tucker, Blake, Kubina, McCabe, so they either eat a big chunk of cash for years to come through buyouts, or live with the consequences of dumb moves by JFJ for the next 3/4 years. None of the others on that roster will bring back anything decent in a deal.

The Canucks need OFFENCE, Calgary needs scoring beyond their top line, Edmonton just needs to be patient with a good young up and coming team, and the Habs still need size up front and maybe second-line offence that is consistent.

Should be fun to watch this week-end.

umm..let's see..where do I start. First priority is get rid of Tucker at any cost. He's a total waste of space. Next, dump McCabe, again, at any cost. Another waste. Pickup a defenceman that will compliment Kaberle..get some good solid (key word here..solid!) goaltending and the Leafs may be in the makings of a half-decent team. But the "dead wood" has got to go!!

Being a Leaf fan,(poor me!)I think Cliff should trade as many of his overpaid underachievers for draft picks as he can get rid of.They will still be on the cuff to pay their huge paychecks but it will pay off down the road when the drafts mature and the underachievers contracts expire.They shouldn't re sign Mats Sundin,as they will get better value for their money by using the 7 or 8 mil to buy out some contracts and this will be a sign that a new era has begun.Hopefully a winning one.

Let me see...I know, trade Larry T and Richard P

The T stands for 'Totally Useless' and the P stands for 'Pathetic'.

At least there is one positive things for the Leafs; They won't have to share a cup to dring champagne out of and possibly catch a cold.

The Leafs should shift Sundeen to defence to prolong his career and make effective use of a dangerous rushing defenceman. If they don't do this they should trade him. He's lost his shine as the number one player and sets the standard too low for coaches to compare up and comers.

I think out west Torres and Schremp should be traded from the Oilers they both have all the talant in the world but they cannont get motivated in the Oiler system, Ryder from montreal would be a great fit in edmonton and he's struggling in Montreal, as for anyone in toronto keep em as far away from out west as possible.

TO needs a top defenseman. They should get rid of some of their third and fourth line players and make room for Marlie players or new draft picks.

Emery. I think Ottawa would be better off without him.

Get rid of McCabe, that guy's past his prime. And bring back Aki Berg who is a MONSTER in the Finnish leagues.
