<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SlickWilly</b></div><div>Yo dawg if you could learn to read youll see that not only am I not a NJ fan, I said the 1st would only come if he resigned. Also, Hall is a season out from being the MVP. That along with his contract is pretty good value AND the consensus in the hockey community was that Dorion was fleeced by McPhee and shouldve gotten more as he immediately signed a contract there, along with the fact that Erik Brannstrom is a MUCH more highly regarded prospect than Poulin.. So yeah, I would say Poulin + a lower level prospect is a fair value for a rental former MVP and a 1st conditional on him re-signing is pretty fair to me. Learn the context before calling people idiots, ya idiot.</div></div>

Fleeced? And you don't think NJ is going to have to deal with the same issues?
Lets tear this down piece by piece. Stone there goes the need to supply more if he resigns as that is the comparable.
B. NJ is in no better shape than Ottawa. A player out the door, wants something, and has no leverage as the only teams willing to give something up are playoff teams and they aren't giving up a ton. Because who else is going to do it. No one! As is there will only be so many teams looking to add come the playoffs. Some don't think they can really win, others are set at LW, and others aren't going to want to part with the high cost. So lets not act like NJ is in any position to get anything more than Ottawa got for Stone. Ottawa didn't get "fleeced" they got market value!
As for Brannstrom being a better player than Poulin. I'm not sure how you get to that. Brannstrom was a 15oa who was drafted ahead of grade because he plays defense and there is always a run on defense.
He's a 5'9 defense men. Good luck with that as being some prize. You look way to much into Ottawa spin on him as being some great prize return. He wasn't. He's suppose to be an offensive defense men as he's not really big enough to be a net guy stay at home defender, and he's got 1 assist in 15 games. Wow! clearly a better player.
You should maybe wait till Poulin actually plays a few games at the NHL level before declaring one better than the other. At least Poulin has the size to play at the NHL level. No one is sold that Brannstrom does. His start at the NHL so far has been shaky at best.

A 1st and a low grad prospect. Even with Hall signing an extension is what the market will be for him. No team is going to give up 2 1sts. Nor are they going to tear their roster up.
I don't care if he was a former MVP. He spent most of last year on IR, and this year in 16 games he's got 2 goals. None of that says, pay the world for me. Stone had 28 goals in 59 games before he was traded, and he wasn't able to land what you are asking because no one is willing to pay all that to a team with 0 leverage

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Gofnut999</b></div><div>Petan has no trade value so start over.

The Kings trade lol.

Desmith is the only option that works but the offer does not.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Yojimbo</b></div><div>Nobody wants Petan, and if Hutchinson was worth anything you wouldn't be looking for a backup.</div></div>

I don't see why the penguins would have any desire to do this. TML might very well be battling them for a wild card spot before all is said and done. DeSmith is already on waivers, it costs them nothing to hold onto him as an emergency option. There is no incentive here at all. Only way he moves IMO is as a chip to move someone else. Even then I don't think it would happen.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drewjenks</b></div><div><strong>"Petan has no value"</strong> ... because he passed through waivers?

Some of these goalies have also passed through waivers this season ....</div></div>

No Petan has no value because the penguins have 16 forwards with more value than Petan. That is why the penguins don't want that contract.
Especially when you are dumping 2 contracts on the penguins who already have 48 contracts and players in NCAA to sign at the end of the season.

They sign Nikita and then they have 1 space left to look at NCAA free agents. So no this doesn't work at all in any way.

The price tag on DeSmith was reported to be a 3rd or as chip to move another player, which never happened.

Sujet: Hornqvist
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DonkeyLips</b></div><div>Why is everyone so concerned with moving players that are playing well now, because their contract MIGHT be bad in a few years? In a few years all that will matter for the pens is going to be rebuilding. Winning now is most important.</div></div>

It's not about the player it's about the system. They want to play a faster and faster game. It's to their advantage to play fast because they have the top level talent to do it.
The faster the rest of the team is, the longer you preserve Crosby and Malkin. Even if they lose a step, the thought process is the faster youth makes up for it.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mhockey91</b></div><div>I could see hornqvist ending up in Seattle as long as he’s still producing at a 20 goal rate. If he takes a major decline I doubt they’ll want him. He’s had so many injury issues and has played such a physical game of hockey. He could decline fast. He’ll probably end his contract on LTIR tbh</div></div>

That would be fine too for Seattle though. It helps them get to the cap floor.
Especially if that contract is insured.
But they are going to do this.
You look at their defense alone and you realize it. Dumo/Letang, Marino/MP...that's 4 right there if they do 7-3 they lose one. If they do 8, they will get killed in the forwards. There is no way they let the defense get picked apart after it took them this long to stabilize it. None. Not a chance in hell.

This is going to happen.
There is no question to me about it.
