Chris Drury Just Might Become Available in the Near Future...On the Planet Earth...Right Now...In Reality...

The Avalanche beat writer up yonder at the Denver Post is reporting that the New York Rangers are close to signing Mats Sundin, and that signing Sundin means trading Chris Drury.

Or, more precisely:
Here’s one thing I’m hearing from people in the know: The Rangers are so intent on getting Mats Sundin that they may well trade Chris Drury to make room.
Naturally, the All Things Av's fellow thinks Drury could return to Colorado, but, well....

Are you thinking that I'm thinking?

I don't buy that for a second.

Surely the cap would force them to trade somebody big if they get Sundin, would it not?

And Drury isn't really doing much for the Rangers.

And he'd be doing so much more for us.... in which way? I'll admit I was anti-Hainsey and lookit him now, but this leaves an even worse taste in my mouth.

Maali-

Who knows? Just sort of thinking out loud...perhaps a real live sniper like Kovalchuk would improve his points...

I think I'd rather get Daniel Briere, though.

Not that any of this is ever going to happen.

Maali said...

I'm hoping you mean Danny Briere of like, six months ago. Man that'd rule. Again, not that it'd happen, but still! :D

I just don't think Mats is worth dismantling your team over. The whole point of signing him is to improve your offence.

They can find another way of getting Mats instead of having to give up Chris...

well im thinking of a philly cheese steak, so if that what your thinking then yep im with ya!

Lehtonen + Schneider for Briere. Really, at this point, anyone Philly gets is just depth. Hey, Mr. Waddell, are we still ahead of them in the rebuilding process? Oh, oh, maybe we can just trade them Scneider for Braydon Coburn for their playoff run. Oh, you don't think they'll do it? Hmm, I wonder why...

That NTC means Drury would have to be sold hard on coming here...

Expressing doubts about wanting Chris Drury on your team is racist.

Maali said...

i'm not a racist. i hate everyone equally.
