    Stoked, definitely going. Out there for the holidays anyway this year so this is perfect. Hey tab, with the buyout of richards from rangers do you think he becomes an option? Would u take a chance on him for something like 3 yr 12 mil?

  2. Tim G says:

    3 for 12? No…
    1 for 2.25… im interested.

    You have to think hes getting 1M+ from the Rangers annually for the like the next decade… you dont have to over pay him, and hes 34, so nothing over 1 year is condusive to long term success through the system.

  3. scottie p says:

    I mean that would be ideal, but I just think he will command more and wouldn’t take that deal.

  4. Tim G says:

    Well of course he doesnt take it… but unless its a price like that, i dont think the Hawks would give a contract to him.

    In other news out of the Rumor Mill, there was a proposed deal…
    Spezza, 2nd, 3rd for Sharp, Conditional pick if Spezza re-signs

    Interesting trade… I think OTT would have to eat some Cap too to make it work, but i think it would only happen if the Hawks brass agrees to give TT one more year.

    Something like this WONT happen if they want TT on the ice THIS year.

  5. Scottie P says:

    Ya I do not think Richards is a serious option unless he takes a paycut. Just a thought. Why in GODS NAME are we so eager to give Sharp away? I would be very surprised if it happened. A team that always says they values winners, character, and chemistry would not give this guy away. I wouldn’t be willing to do that trade, even though that is a boatload of picks.

  6. Scottie P says:

    If you are so desperate to move that kind of cap space, find a way to get seabs out. We are deeper on the blueline and their hit is similar.

  7. Tim G says:

    I never said i wanted this… im in the TT camp myself…

    Just something i saw out there and wanted to share.

    Also, Ottawa would be looking for a winger over a D man. Some people are thinking this offer is just to drive up the price on Ana. Also there is the matter of Sharps NMC.

  8. Scottie P says:

    Oh I wasn’t saying you, just people that are in that camp. I think Sharp is a world class 2 way forward. I want him to be here. He is part of the winning equation. I hope the Hawks pick up a center to compliment Kane. Just not at the cost of one of our core guys. If that isn’t possible, then I guess I hope TT is ready sooner than I think he will be.
