A Different Columbus Trade

Recommended Posts

So just a thought, wouldn't mind the flame, but it is a thought!

To Vancouver

CB 2012 2-rounder

CB 2013 1-rounder

R J Umberger


Luongo and Raymond

My reasons for Umberger is that he can play all 3 forward positions, is 6'2" 220 and has scored 20 or more goals the last 3 seasons, on a club that has what? The reason for taking Columbus's 2013 instead of this years is that it gives Columbus the feeling that it could cost them less than this years 2nd over all pick, while I think it will still be a 1, 2, or 3 overall next year, and the salary dump while not big, gives us another 3.25 million collectively to lock up Schneider and Edler. If the salary cap goes up 4 or 5 million, that allows us an upgrade in the top 6 somewhere, and we get the draft picks to restock with.

This doesn't mean we couldn't swap our new CB 1st rounder for something in this years draft and it doesn't mean we have to keep Umberger, although after being in CB for a few years, he might be pretty happy to lace them up here.

I don't know what do you think?
