Zero.
None.
No chance.
Not going to happen.

Edit: also like how you said $ xxx dollars.

This ain't NHL 12. You can't trade everyone for picks then build off free agents.

What happens if you trade everyone, hopeful to sign Suter and Parise but then Suter doens't sign and Parise goes somewhere else?

Then what?

Not likely, especially after winning two straight president's trophy. We just need to fix some minor things. Fix up our bottom 6 forwards as well as our 2nd line and deal with our defense issues. It would make sense though to trade Ballard to free up some cap.

It would only free up the cap space if you gave them away for nothing,There is always salary coming back the other way.



It would free up $13.7 million dollars.

Uhh...some teams would kill to have a goalie like Luongo.

I think it could have a slim chance of happening.

Ballard would be moved for picks, Booth++ would be moved for a center, and Luongo would be moved for a d man + picks and/or prospects.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Anythings possible, but yeah you would be taking back salary, so your not really freeing much up.

I Know it's not nhl 12 and no I wasn't insinuating that we would get Suter or Parise. Lets be honest our chances of getting either one of them are slim to none. They're going to get big money.I'm thinking of getting a guy like Garrisson.I don't think those 3 guys are worth the money they're getting plus we will get something decent out of the Luongo deal.

It would be kind of nice to trade all three. The only one I kind of interested in keeping is Ballard. I still believe he can be that offensive guy we where hoping to get. He showed signs of it in the playoffs.
I just don't see Booth paning out with Kesler and all that bear stuff and we all know about Luongo.

No chance. Booth is not going anywhere. The rest have a chance to go but I doubt 2 of the 3 will leave.

Haven't you heard? The Coyotes are moving to a small BC town populated by bears. They will form the new hockey team, and will open the season against the Canucks. They have already spoken out against David Booth and his hunting. :emot-parrot:


Calm down, bleeding hearts. David Booth will be a 30+ goal scorer next year, despite this "bear stuff"...

Gillis has a lot on his plate this off season but I can't see him making 3 major trades. I am hoping that we see a resurgence from Booth next year similar to what James Neal went through in Pittsburgh this year. As for Ballard...who knows what MG has up his sleeve there. We can hope that he can start as a 2nd pairing D man next year and provide some offence, but if MG doesn't think so he will be moved so he can bring in someone who can.

For sure one will be moved, maybe 2, but no to all 3

Only Gillis knows the answer but it would be amazing if he was able to get rid of Booth+Ballard while taking no bad contacts in return........

It has nothing to do with his play. Fans have a big say and a lot of fans and people out here are upset about it. I could care less.Booth knows that and he keeps talking about the bear hunting on his twitter account.

Why does everyone want Booth gone? He just got here and performed quite admirably given injuries, new team, new conference, inconsistent line-mates, etc.

He had 1 point. That's the same amount of points as Burrows, Bieksa, Booth and more points than Salo and Higgins.I'm not saying he's a Karlson but he was one of our better d guys this playoffs.

I just don't see him and Kesler working well together. I hope I'm wrong and they play great together. His contract and dollar amount per year is why everyone wants him to go.
