    Interesting test coming up on Friday. Playing a team that’s slightly ahead in the standings (with games in hand) but they are without at least 2 of their better players. We have Hugo back and are missing only Ruzicka, who a lot of posters have little value for.
    Win, and I begin to believe that this team can be as good as #4 or 5 seed in the conference. Lose, and I’m afraid we’re looking at a #7 or 8 seed. These are the kind of games that will have to be won to have any hope of going to a second round in the playoffs.

    It would depend on the return.... honestly I'm down for any trade if it makes the team better now or for the future.

    If you were to package Rees and Ruzicka to get Rossi and a decent 2001 plus a couple 2nd round picks, would you be upset? Rossi is scary-good and would solve the issue we have right now about two imports from the same year.

    Idk rees and Rossi are the same age and same size, I think rees would have more points playing in Ottawa. And on top of rees skill and speed , he has hard work, and tenacity which works well in playoffs. Idk just a guy I’d like to follow in to playoffs personally

    Don’t get me wrong, one can make a case that Rees is the best player on the Sting right now, and will only get better in the next couple years. Nobody would be more surprised than me if he were traded. I’m just saying that if the right return could be had, there’s nobody totally irreplaceable. I’d personally much rather see 19 & 20 year olds moved for younger players and high picks than I would want to see Rees traded.

    I agree totally, I’d be fine with eliot and one of the imports traded for picks and younger players and then riding the team we have for the rest of the year.

    Honestly Rees is all hype and injury prone. Trade him now for a kings ransom.

    How is he all hype? We might not get a kings ransom for him... as you said he’s been hurt and is only projected to go in the 2nd round, probably won’t get a kings ransom

    I think right now we could get something similar to what we gave up last year to get Dineen or if we wait and his hype dwindles we would get something along the lines of Pezetta/Ang depending on his production.

    Rees rated 2nd round for the NHL draft

    What makes you think this kid is so hyped up? I think sarnia people talk about hima lot because we see him play and like what we see. Other fans around the league don’t know much about him.

    If this was even 25% true, Nick should be fired on the spot. If we wouldn't trade him last year, no reason to trade him this year. This team should be a great team in 2 seasons and he will be a big reason why. He will not be traded. Unless there is something going on off the ice with him.

    From what I’ve seen, he’s an extremely nice well-grounded young man. As well, idiots usually don’t make the World U-whatever teams.

    Lol Jake Virtanen challenges that .... I am curious to see how Rees plays the final few months of the season. Would be nice to see him play the entire second half. He's easily a PPG player right now. Id project him and Perreault both to be close to 100 pt guys next year.

    Perreault is an absolute stud.

    I know its very early in his career but i don't see him ranked for his NHL draft year. Usually guys liks Bob Mackenzie have these kids ranked a few years before their draft.
