HF101's Trades 1-5



The first order of business is to discuss the trades proprosed to me by Habsguy26. As the GM for the Western Conference I chose to accept only one of the proposed offers and then I proposed 5 new trades for the GM of the East. You as viewers are asked to give your opinions of our trades and trade proposals that you like, dislike or what maybe you would chose to do differently. One other rule we agreed upon was that if there was a player with an injury today he would still considered fair tradebait if it were likely that he would be healthy in two months.

So let me begin:

First Trade offer: Accepted

New York Rangers offer

Wojtek Wolski, Artem Anisimov, Dan Girardi and a conditional 2012 1st round pick

(if the Rangers make it to the Eastern Conference Finals)

To the Calgary Flames for

Jarome Iginla.

I accepted this trade because I felt Dan Girardi would be a mainstay for the Flames defense. The Flames would be acquiring a #1 defenseman. I like Anisimov for his size and skating ability and feel that he could eventually be that #1 center that the Flames need. Wolski is likely just a added winger for the time being. But the trade was made for the above two reasons and the fact that I am a Flyers' fan and I love the ideal that this trade would likely destroy the Rangers for the rest for the rest of the season. :P


Second Trade offer: Declined

Washington Capitals offer

Michal Neuvrith, Joel Ward, Karl Alzner and Cody Eakin

To the Anaheim Ducks for

Bobby Ryan and a 2012 2nd round pick.

I am not a fan of this trade. The ducks lose one of their premier star forwards for pieces that they do not really need.for a player like Ryan. I also do not believe the Ducks have any intention of trading Bobby Ryan.


Third Trade offer: Declined

New Jersey Devils offer

Zach Parise and Mark Fayne

To the Los Angeles Kings for

Jonathon Bernier, Andrei Loktionov, Slava Voynov and Dustin Penner.

I declined this trade is because I believe we will have a tough time signing Parise to a long term contract. Parise is looking to join a team where he is the go-to guy. I believe Parise will sign with the Minnesota Wild as a free agent this summer. I also think that the Devils want to keep Parise to help their desperate need to make the playoffs for financial reasons.


Fourth Trade offer: Declined

Pittsburgh Peguins offer

Tyler Kennedy

To the Minnesota Wild for

Greg Zanon and a 2013 1st round pick.

I declined this trade because I believe the Wild have greater needs than Tyler Kennedy and I addressed those needs in my trade proposal from the Wild to the Lightning.


Fifth Trade offer: Declined

Tampa Bay Lightning offer

Ryan Malone, Mathieu Garon and their 2012 and 2013 1st round picks

To the Vancouver Canucks for

Roberto Luongo and Alexander Burrows.

Lastly this trade is declined also because I feel Luongo would be a better fit for the Panthers.

My counter trades are as follows:

Trade Proposal 1:

The LA Kings offer

Jack Johnson. and Trent Hunter

To the Philadelphia Flyers for

James Van Reimsdyke and Marc-Andre Bourdon

Trade Proposal 2:

Vancouver Canucks offer


To the Florida Panthers for

Clemmenson, Kulikov and a first round pick in 2012

Trade Proposal 3:

Edmonton Oilers offer

Sam Gagner Alex Hemsky

To the Toronto Maple Leafs for

Cody Franson and M Grabovski and Jake Gardiner

Trade Proposal 4:

Minnesota Wild offer

Niklas Backstrom and Greg Zanon

To the Tampa Bay Lightning for

Vinny Lecavalier

Trade Proposal 5:

The St Louis Blues offer

Ian Cole

To the Carolina Hurricanes for

Tim Gleason

Van Reimsdyk is a lot to give up for Johnson. I think Bourdon is a big surprise for the Flyers as well. This trade proposal isn't realistic.
