If they could make this deal without trading Carrick they could protect 8 skaters instead of 7F and 3D.

Protect: Kadri, Bozak, Brown, Leipsec, Rielly, Gardiner, Hamilton and Carrick.

Leaving Komarov, Martin, Leivo, Rychel and Marincin exposed. I don't think losing any one of those guys is a problem.

We could potentially run a D of:

Rielly-Zaitsev
Gardiner-Hamilton
Someone-Carrick

Looks pretty good on paper.

Does JVR as the main piece going back make sense for Calgary though?

I wondered that myself. I think that's sort of a function of if not JVR, who? Nylander or maybe Kadri seems to be the only other options and I think those would give more people pause.

One of the tsn(seravelli maybe?) guys tweeted that Calgary is one of the 10 teams on JVR's no trade list.

Brian Burke was on TSN today ranting and raving about the media, and about teams leaking false information. He said a team called him and inquired about Hamilton, and then made an insulting offer. That team then apparently leaked the offer to the media. Burke threatened to out the team if they keep it up, and said he would consider trading Hamilton if a team offered him 20 first-round picks. Typical Burke bluster.

We need a great defender, but I think that might be too much for Hamilton.

So I'm out on Hamilton at that number.

I remember Bruin fans talking about Dougie H being the 2nd coming on Defense.

I never knew I missed a good Burke rant until I didn't have it for awhile. That parting remark was great.

It's funny that Hamilton was drafted by the Bruins because Burke traded away his first round picks for Kessel, now he wouldn't trade Hamilton for 20 first rounders.  Ok Burkie, keep it real.

I'm pretty sure he said something similar about Schenn while he was here.

I listened to the audio, Burke says team X leaked the Hamilton rumors.  Previously Kypreos had reported that both Arizona and Pittsburgh were kicking tires on Hamilton, I wonder which of the two teams leaked it?

Wait... who was Luke Schenn eventually traded for?

I *may* be ok with a JVR for Hamilton trade, I don't think they would do it - straight up.

Nylander, Marner and Matthews are basically untouchable, IMO.
