If trader bob was had something in the midst in our not so distant future, who would you hope that he would move for? Not necessarily who you think he would go for, but who would you like to see in an Ams Jersey? We have heard lots of talk about Sbisa so lets leave him out of it. Wouldn't it be a trip to see Broda back as an Am?
For me it would be Jordan Eberle from the Pats. He just made things happen on the ice. He is another Yellow Horn type player and can swing a game. I was very impressed with his play and how he controlled the tempo on the ice.

I think we could upgrade one of our 20 y/o's, I'd love to see Prab Rai or Sylvester from Kooteney brought in for an inconsistent defensemen that will go unnamed.
Raedeke from Edmonton or Revenko from P.A. would be nice and maybe not break the bank in terms of trade. With the way this team is playing right now, getting 1 big name is not going to get it done anyway. This team could be very competitive with the current 17-18 y/o core players for 2 or 3 years so I would hate to see Shinny, Hughey, Macek, Messier, Feser or Dow moved for a rent-a-player.
Bob has done very well by this team so he'll certainly get a pass from me for awhile. IMO the jury's still out on Hiller, this team has the talent to be good and had been good up until a few weeks ago. Did the boys just over-achieve earlier in the season and this is how good they really are, or is the team under-performing for Hiller now? Sorry I got off topic, I just want to team of 3 weeks ago back. What happened to you guys?
