      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Antropov not at Practice

33 posts in this topic

As per Sara Orlesky https://twitter.com/saraorlesky

Possible trade? He was skating yesterday so it is probably not an injury.

He would work as a 3rd line centre here :)

Maybe we see the reports coming true of Raymond heading to Winnipeg.

I really would be against having a $4.25mil 3rd line Center.

I figure some team who is extremely weak down the middle might make a move for him. A return to Toronto perhaps?

I definitely don't want him here. He plays softer than most players half a foot shorter than him. He's more suited for a top-six role.

Nikolai has good versatility as he can play wing or center.

He has good size, and can score 20 goals.

If the Jets ARE trading him, I think there could be lots of suitors..

I agree with what you say regarding him... but there are limited options.

His contract is only for this year, we DO need someone to fill in on the 2nd line for a while. He can also play all three F positions which AV and MG love.

If it was something like:

To Wpg:

Raymond

2nd or 3rd round pick

To Van:

Antropov

Mid Range prospect

Antropov's goal pace if he had played 82 games the last seasons:

18

17

26

28

Only one short stint was with a playoff team in the last 4 years. He's not a guy you get for toughness, but he's hard to knock off the puck and can play on any line.

Sedin - Sedin - Antropov on the PP would be interesting while Kesler is out. At 6'6, 246 pounds, what goalie is going to be able to see the puck?

If the Jets were willing to absorb some salary on the rest of his deal with 1 year remaining, maybe it could work.. Raymond for Antropov + a 4th and the Jets take 1.25 million of Antropov's 4.06 million cap hit.

A 6'6 3rd line center is very intriguing to me, especially if he plays with a guy who is willing to do the dirty work (Hansen? Kassian?).

Antropov, despite not being known as hard-nosed put up a pace for 111 hits over 82 games. That's roughly the same pace as Kesler.

I don't see Winnipeg absorbing cap hit, his contract is only for this year. We would be smart to arrange our lineup so lots of contracts expire this summer. With buyouts and the reduced cap, quality UFAs will be cheap and plentiful.

Centres are a hot commodity. Wpg needs a RW quite badly, I wouldn't be surprised if they would want Hansen as the return instead of Raymond. Moving Hansen gives a roster spot for Zassian on the 3rd line.

Tough call... but it certainly fills one of our holes.

If the Jets could get Hansen for Antropov, I'd be one happy Jets fan.

However, the Jets are not too deep at center. Jokinen takes the 1st line C, but after that, it's less conclusive. Burmi, Scheifele, Wellwood, Slater, Cormier, Maxwell.

Hansen is currently our top natural right wing, which is a problem of its own. Burrows, Higgins etc when they play here are effective on their off wing. We want to acquire, not lose any right wingers...

Trading the one who has the best motor, an integral part of using speed and pressure from a depth line, makes even less sense.

Hansen is not going anywhere!
