[proposal] Baertschi or Goldy for Chandler Stephenson

Recommended Posts

Rumor on the washington capitals hf board says Chandler Stephenson may get traded tonight.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Benning pulls the trigger on a Baertschi or Goldy for Stephenson trade.

 

Especially now since even Graovac is injured and will be out along with Sutter / Beagle.

 

Stephenson could hold the fort as the 4th line centre until we get bodies back.

Stephenson is 25 years old, plays centre, is 6'0" and 208 pounds. Capitals fans loved him in their last playoffs and some fans thought he was going to be a fixture in their top 9 or top 6. Most of their fans are unhappy with his play this year saying he is under performing.

 

He does play good defense as a centre but only has 4 points in 24 games this year.

Wonder where you got the idea for this proposal lol

 

 

Like I said, I was reading the Washington Capitals hf board where they were saying he may get traded. I just said I would not be surprised if Benning pulls the trigger because of our lack of centres. 

 

What is confusing to you about the above?

4 points in 24 games on the CAPS? Hard pass xD

Not upset there champ. I just found your first post.....odd.

 

Chandler Stephenson has only 4 points but that is 1 more than Beagle and 2 more than Graovac. 4th line centres don't usually put up big numbers.

 

Who do the Canucks play at centre on the 4th line then? 

 

MacEwen? Schaller?  I know both those names were thrown around on the radio.

 

Not sure we have many options. Anyway....just spit balling.

MODS - I did not see someone else started a rumor thread on this same player. 

 

Feel free to shut this one down if appropriate.  Thanks.

I don't see why it should be shut down

It is a legit idea, and asks a question

I don't necessarily think we should make the trade

but maybe 

I think it is worth the discussion.....

but with Beagle back soon, and Schaller, and McEwen

do we need to?

He's +5 and 50.8% on Face Offs which is why we would get him....if we did

i thought washington had to clear cap space for returning injured players. for us it would have to cap space for cap space.

Washington has Hagelin coming off LTIR and are trying to create the cap space to activate him as well as a roster spot.  They can't add anyone.   Stephenson went through waivers earlier this season and is probably going back now that they are looking to activate Hagelin.

 

Same issue for the Canucks btw with Roussel returning.  They've just put Ferland on LTIR because they don't have enough cap space to deal with injuries.  It buys them some time but Ferland is already practicing with the team.

 Not sure why the hard time a couple of ya given him lol. 
 

I think it’s a decent idea. Pretty rough at centre right now. If it was Baer going the other way it would be alright. Free up cap space but I’m sure caps are in the same boat
