    Friedman reiterated Pittsburgh's interest in Domi. I still don't think that makes a lot of sense, but whatever.

    How does Domi and Maatta's value compare? I was thinking something like Domi and Capobianco for Maatta and Sprong.

    There's nothing really too appealing on the Pittsburgh roster, at least realistically and fitting our situation.

    Kessel if the deal is right. Hagelin if he is free. Some mild interest in Schultz.

    Gah Domi to Pitt rumors are heating up. Domi for Sprong + is actually very intetesting however.

    Trading both Domi and OEL in one offseason is a sure fire way of losing me as a fan lol

    I like Sprong but he does nothing to help us next season. We need to add a winger, not subtract one.

    Domi for Sprong+ is a roughly even value trade. But it's still selling low on Domi, and there's certainly no guarantee Sprong is as productive as Domi was through his first 200 games either. Bleh.

    I hate it. Domi will punch you in your ****ing face. Sprong is a guy who has some offensive upside. I don’t want a team full of Boedkers and Gagners. I’d love to have a team full of Domis.

    If there’s a deal for Phil Kessel that actually makes a little sense and he’s actually open to coming here, I’d be all over that. How can you not love Kessel? I hate the Penguins. I hate Crosby. I hate Malkin. I love Phil Kessel.

    I have legit interest in many things. I have legit interest in eating a bag of chips. I have legit interest in jogging on a treadmill. I have zero interest in trading Domi to Pittsburgh for anything less than a lopsided Phil Kessel deal.

    Kessel will get to finish the hot dog trifecta and get his hands on a Sonoran dog.

    Kessel is a terrible fit for this organization right now, and doubly so at the expense of Domi. I don't even want to entertain the idea.

    Kassel is a frustrating player to watch. It might have worked in Pitt because they have great Leaders but I don't like the chances of it working in AZ. He is a much better version of Duke, a guy who plays when he wants and floats when he doesn't with an I don't give a poop attitude. AZ is not ready for Phil right now.

    Domi for Sprong+ definitely helps the balance of our lineup. It also definitely makes that group young as eph. It most likely waters down the talent too though.

    I think it's easier to find LWs in UFA that don't require a bidding war. Quality RWs are hard to sign.

    Would I do the trade? Probably not, unless the + is really nice AND if I believed Perlini would step forward.

    I don't want to trade Domi. He has put up good numbers on an absolutely horrible team. I'd be skeptical of any younger player that put up big numbers on Pitt transferring them to our team. Playing on a team with Crosby, Malkin and Kessel gives you huge advantages that you won't sniff here.

    Whenever I read about Kessel I think about hot dogs. When I saw Kessel mentioned my first thought was "get this man a Sonoran".

    The SBNation Red Wings site had fun with Kessel a few years back: What does Phil Kessel Do for a Living?

    If Kessel ends up in AZ, we damn well better do some sort of Sonoran dog promotion.

    Do we have to add anything to Domi if we take both Kessel and Hagelin? That's 10.8 mil off the books for Pittsburgh in one shot, or about ~7 mil once they re-sign Domi.

    Why would you even entertain a thought like that. We are building this team with our own draft picks and I sure do not want to start trading them for over the hill / dumpster diving / high priced / over priced players. That is not the way to build a team. When the kids were young and not NHL ready, many wanted to trade the vets and play the kids, but now the kids have progressed and many just started to play in the NHL , some posters, no many posters want to trade them for vets. In the cap era you build a team thru the draft, not taking the left overs and disgruntled players from other teams.

    My only concern is that we spent time talking about the end of a country club atmosphere, but to me, the idea of plucking players from Pittsburgh somewhat continues with that logic.

    Maybe Kessel or Sprong are the types of players that also carry over strong play into practice, but I want to make sure that we are looking into this for the right reasons. Having a history with a coach could be good, but could also be Ribeiro all over again.

    Not a huge fan of including Domi in deals.

    Agree. Sprong is a very good fit in AZ, but what is the +? Sure Chakya would love Schultz, but then AZ likely needs to add something back.

    That said, don't love the idea of selling Max low and don't love the idea of losing him, period.

    Teams tend to kick the tires about good players after down years just as fans tend to kick the legs out from under good players after bad years. I'm not concerned about a Domi to PGH trade. If Domi is truly on the market, Chayka can find a much better fit than PGH.
