now the offers I accept from HF in his latest blog...


The Dallas Stars trade:

Radek Dvorak and Brett Richie

To the New Jersey Devils for:

Dainius Zubrus


The St Louis Blues trade:

Kris Russel and Jori Lehtera

To the New York Islanders for:

Milan Jurcina


I love the fact that we're getting a cagey vet in Radek Dvorak and a great prospect in Brett Richie (here is his prospect profile -----> http://www.hockeysfu...s/brett_ritchie) for the aging, dried up Dainius Zubrus. Dvorak has 20 points this season and would be a welcome addition to New Jersey's roster. While I didn't get the young goalie prospect I wanted to get for New Jersey, I did manage to get young Brett Richie, who is projected to be a top 6 forward and based on his scouting report, he seems like he could be comparable to Milan Lucic.

As for the Isles deal, I accepted it because Jurcina will definitely help St. Louis in their play off run, and we will get two solid players in return. Kris Russel has offensive upside and has the potential to run a 2nd powerplay unit. While Jori Lehtera (here is his prospect profile ---> http://www.hockeysfu...ts/jori_lehtera) is a young, big center who can score; a hot commodity in the NHL these days. I liked this offer from HF.

Now to get to the two trades I declined from HF....

HF's first counter offer:

The Phoenix Coyotes offer:

Ray Whitney

To the Boston Bruins for

Jared Knight

Offer Declined:I decided to reject this offer because Jared Knight will be a scoring machine in the NHL. He is slotted as a future 2nd line power forward, and he drives the net hard (here is his prospect profile ----> ( http://www.hockeysfu...ts/jared_knight). I don't think trading a prospect of his caliber for the aging rental Ray Whitney is beneficial for us looking forward. I am going to abandon all talks between Phoenix and Boston.

HF's second counter offer:

The San Jose Sharks offer:

Brandon Mashinter and a third round pick

To the Montreal Canadiens for

Andrei Kostitsyn

Offer Declined: This offer has been rejected because I think we can get more for Andrei than a future 4th line power forward. I am going to abandon all talks between San Jose and Montreal.

First offer:

The Montreal Canadiens offer:

Andrei Kostitsyn, Chris Campoli, Mike Blunden and a 2013 2nd round pick

to The Phoenix Coyotes for:

Rostislav Klesla and Gilbert Brule

Why I like this offer is because Phoenix will get a bit of everything in this deal: a 2nd - 3rd line scoring winger for a different threat besides Whitney, Doan and Vbrata, a puck moving defenceman who can play on a second power play unit, a grinding 4th line forward who can chip in offensively and a promised 2nd rounder in the 2013 draft. My Habs on the other side, will get a 29 year old defenceman who is going to hit his stride in the next year or two and a big (FRENCH) forward in Gilbert Brule, who hasn't really caught on to the NHL game yet. I think its a win-win scenario for both teams, as Montreal takes a gamble on Brule but receives Klesla, and Phoenix gambles on Campoli but gets Kostitsyn, plus others.

Second offer:

The Boston Bruins offer:

Greg Campbell and a 2012 2nd round pick

to The San Jose Sharks for:

Doug Murray

Even though San Jose just traded for Moore, any team will benefit from having Greg Campbell playing for them. Greg, son of former NHL sheriff Colin Campbell, is a hard hitting, face off winning, grinding center who play off teams would truly drool over this trade deadline. Coming back to Boston will be hard hitting defender Doug Murray, who will certainly lay a few crippling hits on my Habs this post season ;)

Okay guys so there it is. Hopefully we'll get this done before Monday!!!! Don't forget to comment and vote!!!!!!
