Poll: What kind of trade market do you expect to see?

Postby Nihar on Wed Mar 01, 2006 4:44 pm

Given the cap and other factors, I think maybe it was Bill Clement who said he expected to see massive, multi-team deals. I myself am not so sure much will take place at all.

Not getting into specifics (who wants who from who, etc.), in general, what kind of activity do you expect to see? A lot? A little? Etc.....

I think it will be just the opposite. Just look at the sports with caps, and see how little dealing there is. There will be more than, say, the NBA, but not nearly as much as in previous years.

Agreed MCM. The cap adds another variable that makes deals harder. One thing you may see, mostly in future years, is that part of the value of an underperforming player is the length of his contract.

I think this year will be very interesting to watch. The amount of movement this year will probably be what we should expect in the future.

I would like to see a lot of movement. I find it more interesting that way. I'd really like to see the Pens active of course.

I'm looking forward to it.

I disagree here. I think, in the future, we will see more deals than we do this year. This is the first year of a new CBA. GM's are still getting their feet wet. There will be deals this year, for sure, but there will be plenty more in years to come. Also, soemthing to keep in mind is that, many players are still in huge mulityear contracts that are simply untradable. Yashin comes to mind. Once these contracts, which were signed prior to the lockout, start coming to an end, these players will have to take paycuts and likely will sign shorter length cotnracts, making them more easily tradable. What that means is that more affordable players will be on the market as years go by, thus stimulating the trade deadline.

Instead of seeing a few huge moves I think we will see a lot of small precursor's of guys being moved, like handzus, Gomez and others making a good chunk of change to clear cap space to get turned around then to bring in higher priced guys for the playoffs.

I agree with MCM. I think that you will see some deals, but not like years past. Remeber this is the first year of the CBA and the GM's are still "learning" the ropes of the cap. When GM' get used to the cap, then I think the trade talk will heat up. It is just to hard to dump a player now, and as a result of that, teams are not going to take to many risks. Remeber how we dumped Kucera? A trade like that would NEVER happen in "today's" NHL, even for JAGR.
