    Who would you trade G for?

    Okay, just play along.

    Was having a discussion with friends and this question came up. Clearly everyone wants Giroux as a Flyer for life. As do I. But comparing him with talent around the league, hypothetically, what players would you actually be willing to deal Giroux for.

    The only relatively realistic deals I could see myself doing were (trust me, "realistic" is being used very loosely):

    Malkin, Sid and Quick

    Mind you, this is just a little thread to keep things light while we wait for this Weber typhoon to pass. Interested in hearing your players.

    interesting idea for a thread to occupy us

    Obviously would only trade to the West conference.

    Winnipeg for Buff, Bogo, Kane, top prospect, and 1st rounder. (forgetting that this team might be set on defensemen for the next 4 years lol)

    or

    Oilers for Hall, Nugent Hopkins, 1st rounder

    Currently, given his contract and all around ability...no one. He's among the top 5-10 best players in the league. Don't get me wrong, there are better players but none with a better contract..It would have to be some ridiculous package.

    Quick, Crosby, Stamkos are three players... Could probably think of a few packages as well.

    think you guys are missing the point. We all agree he's untouchable and theres no reason to do it. But, if you are GM, what offer would it take... no matter what you say, theres an offer out there you'd have to take (when ignoring variables like loyalty, salary cap, etc) .

    i wouldn't be able to come up with a plausible offer. i just wouldn't. for example, if i was going to trade him to the kings, i'd want doughty, quick, brown, their top prospect, and 1 or 2 first round picks. the offer is ludicrous. but i just have that much faith in G to be a game-changer, leader, and ultimately a cup winner.


    i just can't think of any trade i would make that would involve G.

    Okay... maybe this'll malke it a little easier.

    Act as if you have the number 1 overrall pick in a fantasy draft type situation. You can take any current hockey player in the world to begin your team with and build around.

    I'm taking Malkin 9 times outta 10. Maybe Doughty.

    Not sure if you're serious....You'd be getting a Top 2 goalie...Top 5 D Man, a Captain and Leader in Brown and 2 picks. I'd do that in a heartbeat and Homer probably would as well.
