    Here's how this thread will work...Name your team and take 3 guys who could really help your team. Only 1 per team. The most creative will pick role players too...I'll start...

    Washington Capitals

    Rick Nash-The Caps have needed a center forever. This guy would anchor us for the next 10-15 years and fit with the youth movement.

    Ryan Stone-Has chemistry with Fehr and both would help each other reach max potential.

    Dion Phaneuf-The Caps other major need is defense and grit. Phaneuf brings both in a package.

    Next!

    sidney crosby - the oilers could use a franchise center capable of breaking wayne gretzky's records

    dion phaneuf - the oilers could use a future franchise d-man

    kari lehtonen - the oilers could use a future franchise goalie

    Quite correct...so much for that logic. I'd still take him at LW even though Ovechkin and Semin are there. I doubt they stay at LW. I really need to find a big center that's young...

    I guess I'll go Spezza. Since Crosby isn't on a team yet, you can't really steal him.

    This thread should be "Post if you wish Crosby, Phaneuf and Lehtonen were in your farm system"

    If i could insert any 3 NHL players onto my roster they would be: Todd Bertuzzi, Sergei Fedorov, and Chris Pronger. <----- for the habs.

    I doubt it. He's never played there to the best of my knowledge, and his playmaking skills, vision of the ice, and defense are really nothing special.

    For the Toronto Maple Leafs :)

    Prospects.

    Jeff Carter - to take over as Leafs franchise player after Sundin is done.

    Kari Lehtonen - To take over Belfour when he is done.

    Ryan Suter - Next top D-Man.

    Professionals.

    Vinny Lecavalier - Almost came to the Leafs one year through trade... :banghead:

    Dan Hamhuis - He's going to be a fine D-Man or Joni Pitkanen - Im high on D-Men.

    Who would be the best playmaking center in ther game now? I'm looking for someone under 25 to center Ovechkin and Semin or Fehr?

    Three prospects for Phoenix:

    1. LW - Alexander Ovechkin: A big improvement over Brett Hull on our top line. Zherdev is probably a safer pick, as he is more proven, but I think Ovechkin could be worth the gamble, even though it is very possible that he is crazy in his head.

    2. G - Ray Emery: Phoenix is very thin in goal. He and LeNevue are very different goalies, and that difference in style could breed a very nice competition.

    3. RW - Patrick Eaves: I think he could step right in. He's great energy guy and has potential to be alot more. Although, if Jordin Tootoo qualifies as a prospect, I might have to pick him, as he would probably help to put butts in Glendale Arena's shiney new seats.

    PHX's projected '04-'05 lineup:

    Forwards:
    Ovechkin - Comrie - Doan
    Nagy - Nedved - Kolanos
    Saprykin - Ricci - Johnson
    Nash - Rupp - Eaves/Tootoo

    Defensemen:
    Morris - Gauthier
    Mara - Hulse
    Tanabe - O'Donnell

    Goalies:
    Some combination of Boucher, LeNevue, Johnson, Emery

    With NHL ready guys like Hull, Chimera, Cleary, Devereaux, Savage, Nazarov, Doull, Sjostrom, Taffe, Ference, Spiller, and whomever loses the goalie battle all on the outside looking in, there is quite a bit of room for trades, as well.

    Your best bets are probably Jason Spezza if you want an NHLer, or Evgeni Malkin if you want a prospect.

    VINCENT LECAVALIER . . . though technically he is 26.

    Under 25? Malkin of course . . . afterall he is already better than AO . . . ;)

    With the name of the thread it's just a question of time before Pizzapie finds it :D

    It seems that pretty much every good player "Almost" was traded to the leafs.

    Yeah, and one time they "almost" managed to deal Jonas Höglund away, but their fax machine broke down :D

    Good choice, but Thornton isn't under 25. He'll be 26 in a few months.

    For the Canucks, assuming Naslunds still on the team, I'd go young yet dominant, C, D, G.

    Thorton

    Chara

    Luongo.

    fit in perfect with the age group of the core. would be dominant for the next 10 years. Shy.

    It's very possible that Ovechkin is crazy in his head and Zherdev is the safer pick?

    :clap:

    I'm hearing Twilight Zone music, the lights are growing dim Frankie, the homeristic Canadian media is everywhere!

    For pure playmaking ability, I might vote for Scott Gomez. He will fit your age range.

    I'll take Pittsburgh.

    Vincent Lecavalier-Strong scoring center; Will provide the scoring threat we need on a constant basis.

    Dion phaneuf-Strong punishing defenseman we need.

    Phil Kessel-Another scorer to fill out the top two lines.
