All of us (i assume) would make berglund a part of a trade for spezza, but would you move oshie, rattie/jaskin and a 1st next year? If we don't want berglund, why would Ottawa?

looking at the non-tenders....how about adding Mathieu Perreault to our 3rd line mix? Anaheim made the semi-strange move of offering a contract but not qualifying him. Since he was making $1.1 million, presumably their offer was below that. Odd for a guy who put up 43 points (just like Ryan Kesler) while averaging just 13 and change a game. Faceoff percentage was 52.6. If we could get him for Morrow money, I think I'd be a steal for us.

We don't have a 1st next year and Spezza wants out. I would throw Rattie in the deal but not Jaskin. I know people hear love Oshie but I could easily depart with him.

:doh: I had forgotten about the lost 1st. I assume that's part of the Ryan Miller weirdness trade? Since he wasn't resigned and we didn't make the 3rd round, we lose not our first this year, but next year? Geez. Lol.

C'mon Stastny! 3 hours to go!

Is a 2nd, Rattie/Jaskin and Oshie/Berglund enough?

We were always losing our first next year in that deal. But if we had re-signed him prior to the draft, we would have lost our first this year. We turned him loose, thus we didn't lose that pick.

Hopefully...hopefully the Blues are already set with Stastny and are just waiting for 11am to hit, which is why they allowed Spezza to go to Dallas.

It's been common knowledge now for days that Stastny has been #1 on the Blues list of players to acquire.
If they can get him...that's big. Nothing off of the roster...just money.

Gonna be a long 40+ minutes until he signs with someone. It needs to be us.

So I was intrigued by this whole "off ice issues" thing with Ribeiro and the buyout... omg, dude's got some troubles.

I sincerely hope we don't look to him for help at center. What a clusterfu$k.

I would like to know more about those prospects in the deal, but that doesn't look like Dal gave up all that much to acquire Spezza.

Interesting.

It's looking more and more like Berglund will be around with that albatross of a contract.

Edit: Guptil is a 7.0 C LW and Paul is a 6.0 C LW according to Hockey's Future. So, um, Spezza and another player for a young RW who put up Berglund-esque numbers and a couple of boom or bust mid-level prospects and a second round draft pick? Wow.

Told you it would be relatively cheap.

Well, I hate that we didn't get Spezza, but Dallas gave up a lot. Someone posted that Schwartz was asked for by Murray. Don't blame Army one bit for turning that down. Full speed ahead on Stastny.

I'm with not_a_wings_fan on this one. Those aren't top prospects. Probably could have been had for Berglund, Rattie/Jaskin, one of our D prospects and a second rounder. Probably they asked for Schwarz because Army wouldn't want to give up next year's second which is the Blues' first pick.

Now it's Stastny or this offseason is already a failure.

Yea, if the asking price was Schwartz then I'm fine without Spezza, but, like others have said, this makes Stastny really really important for us...
