Trade Talk

Postby Jason » Fri Oct 27, 2017 4:54 pm

Stars scouting Columbus
However, I can confirm, and this is according to two separate sources in Columbus, that the Stars have scouted the Blue Jackets heavily this season.

However, the individuals scouting the games in Columbus may be something to read into.

Senior advisor to the GM Les Jackson, assistant GM Scott White, and Stars head professional scout Paul McIntosh have all watched the Blue Jackets at least once this season. That’s a trio that is somewhat involved in the decision-making process for the Stars, so they could be doing their homework for a potential future move with the Blue Jackets.

On CBC's Hotstove Saturday.
Friedman said Spezza's name has came up in trade talks lately, but the Stars preference is to keep him for his offense.


LeBrun TSN on Columbus

"Here’s the thing: They’re eight-deep at the NHL level on defence and teams are calling about their defence. We know that Ryan Murray’s name was in the Colorado conversation [in a possible trade for Matt Duchene], but it does not mean they’re shopping him or looking to move him, but the bottom line is this: They have defencemen, they’re ready to move one and they want to get better up front.”

Spezza needs to at least score a few more goals before a team is going to give up anything AND take on his 7+ mil salary for this season and the next.

Trading Spezza right now would be selling awfully low

Or maybe this is his peak value. Maybe the farther away we get from his 30 goal season a couple of years ago the less GMs value him.

Yeah, I don't think he'll ever approach that number again. He just doesn't bring much more to the table than turnovers and passes to no one in particular anymore.

His line mates are no one in particular, so his passing is still right on the money.
