Did Dudley do right with deadline deals?

Yesterday, Thrashers general manager Rick Dudley pulled the trigger on a trio of trade deadline day deals. He also re-signed newly acquired defenseman Mark Stuart and snagged a center off the waiver wire.

Here is a brief recap of what went down:

Sent to the Florida Panthers were forwards Niclas Bergfors and Patrick Rissmiller in exchange forward Radek Dvorak and a 5th round draft pick. Dvorak is 33 and has scored 7 goals and 14 assists in 53 games played. He’ll be a UFA come July 1 and is currently being paid $1.7 million this season.

Bergfors was a part of the deal with the Devils last winter that sent Ilya Kovalchuk to New Jersey. He scored 11 goals and 18 assists in 52 games and compiled a –11 rating. After coming to Atlanta last year he looked as though he could become a major piece in the Thrashers future, but things started to head south with him and the organization last summer during contract talks and he seemed to reside in coach Craig Ramsay’s doghouse all season. Hopefully this change will bring a new beginning for this promising young talent.

As for Rissmiller…his biggest accomplishment for the Thrashers is that he helped the team send Todd White to the Rangers.

Dudley also shipped Fredrik Modin to Calgary in return for a 7th round draft pick and swapped prospect goalie Drew McIntyre to Montreal for prospect defenseman Brett Festerling.

Lastly, there was the acquisition of Rob Schremp from the Islanders. He was plucked off the waver wire.

Did Dudley do right with his deals over the past two weeks?

  • Yes! the team is better now and the future looks bright (41%, 93 Votes)
  • No! He didn't help the team at all (16%, 37 Votes)
  • Feh...Only time will tell. (43%, 95 Votes)

Total Voters: 225

Loading ... Loading ...

All this caps off a very busy two weeks for Dudley and Co. as we have seen several transactions that have modified the team’s roster. Starting with the trade that sent Rich Peverley and Boris Valabik to Boston for Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart, Atlanta then moved Brent Sopel and Nigel Dawes to Montreal for Ben Maxwell and a 4th round pick. Then came yesterday’s deals.

What all of that leaves us with is this…

Where there was once Sopel on defense, you now have Stuart. Where there was once Peverley and Bergfors up front there is now Wheeler and Dvorak. Also, where there was Modin we now will see Maxwell/Schremp…at least until Jimmy Slater and Alex Burmistrov get healthy.

I’ll let you debate whether or not the team is in better shape now for a stretch run then they were two weeks ago. Personally I think ultimately that will be decided by how they perform over the remaining six weeks of the season.

However, looking beyond that I think Rick Dudley has done a very good job as far as the future is concerned. He did not deal away any significant prospect for an aging vet with multiple years left on a contract, nor did he conduct a fire sale in which he in essence threw in the towel on this season.

But even more than that, he was able to ink Stuart to a 3-year $5.1 million contract extension that will keep the soon-to-be 27 year old blueliner around here for the foreseeable future. The deal is not only a good one where the team’s payroll department is concerned, but it will also go a long way in helping to solidify the one area of this team that has always been a major issue…defense. Stuart has performed well since coming over here, showing a great deal of hustle and grit, and he can be a vital piece in the puzzle that is the Thrashers future.

Also not to be overlooked is the fact that Stuart was traded here only about a dozen or so days ago, but apparently has already seen enough to say, “Yeah, I like what’s going on here and would like to stick around for a while”.

We in Thrasherville aren’t exactly used to that and it came as very welcome news indeed.

Thrasher Tim, I certainly agree that Mr. Dudley is tighter than a mouse’s ear. The organization found another GM who honestly believes that he can “do it on the cheap.” Bouwmeester never forgave Dudley for not making him the # 1 overall pick in the 2002 Draft, because it would set in motion higher bonuses in his contract. Dudley still got his man at # 3. I don’t rightly know how much $$ that actually saved the Florida Panthers, in terms of paid out salary, but why ELSE make the trade with Columbus? I actually don’t mind that a GM intends to be ‘fiscally responsible.’ That actually is the correct way to run a franchise. Paying Scott Gomez or Chris Drury $8 million and $7-something million in cap hit … isn’t the greatest idea of all-time. Certainly, as fans, we wouldn’t want our team to constantly be flush against the cap, with aging, overpaid garbage on the roster. Jay Feaster, meet the Calgary Flames. Calgary Flames, Jay Feaster.

But … honest to Pete … how ELSE is an organization whose ownership is as bad as the Heptacluster … going to land Brian Campbell? Or Mike Cammalleri? Or Alex Semin? Jason Spezza or Marian Hossa? And yes, Hossa’s contract is another “bad” one. But probably one, we would have made, had Hossa been willing to sign it!! The Heptacluster offered Kovalchuk $102 million over 12-years. He said, ‘nyet.’ How and why is it that Hossa and Kovalchuk were okay to spend on like drunken stumblebums during Mardi Gras, but Campbell and Spezza are not?

Unless the argument really is … “We have to pay E. Kane $8.5 million, Bogosian $7.9 million, and Burmistrov $7.25 million in order to keep them,” then there’s PLENTY O’Cap Space available. At what point, as ownership, do we want to announce that the Thrashers are trying to win the Cup? This notion of constantly fielding the league minimum cap, while the ‘best of the AHL’ masquerades as our bottom six forwards … is not going to attract the attention of pending UFA’s or the agents of players who’d have to relinquish an ‘NTC’ to come here.

To the best of my knowledge, we inexplicably have $18+ million in cap room. Surely, that’s enough to re-sign Bogosian, Kane, Burmistrov + this year’s Top 10 pick, through their RFA years, at RFA pricing. At some point … the Thrashers must show some kind of financial PULSE to garner the attention of player agents around the league.

Brendan, I think we can resign Ladd, Wheeler, Dvorak and Bogo and still be within a couple million of the rising cap floor. It’s when we start playing “what if” with an additional $8-10M, to bring us to mid-cap, that you start seeing what this team could be. Two 40 – 50 pt forwards added without having to draft, wait, develop, wait, trade, etc. That mid-cap team should be in the playoff mix all year, paid for with 5,000 season ticket holders coming back into the fold. Count me in for 4 tix if that happens. Just need ownership with some vision and commitment.

Thrasher Tim, don’t laugh … but there are actually minions of the team that patrol these boards, researching dozens and dozens of our posts, to then regurgitate the WORST of them back in our faces. Make enough posts, and you’re bound to say something stupid, or proven wrong, over time. Then they pounce on it, repeating it ad nauseum to your “handle.”

It’s gotta be like ‘water off a ducks back.’ Thrasher Tim, if someone gives you crap, ignore them. Stick to the hockey discussions, and people will gravitate to the conversation. It’s a hockey blog. That’s what we’re here for. Talk about the line combinations, someone’s bound to jump in. Talk about the ownership, someone’s bound to jump in. Talk about the Draft, someone’s bound to jump in. Talk about the Frenzy coming this July, and the needs of the team and what’s out there, and someone is bound to jump in. And if they ridicule your suggestions, well … put them on permanent ignore. Or, if you simply must engage them, ask how many ‘professional victories’ they have to their credit as a General Manager or Head Coach. Though, I always detest that as an argument. After all, if a blog were held to that standard, Mike Keenan would be here … all by himself.

I’m just curious to see who will be owning this team next season. If it’s these guys, we know the money will continue to be tight. If it’s somebody else (and the team is staying here), maybe that figure will go up a bit and make it easier for playoff hockey to be a regular occurrence here.

Lou has cleared enough space to sign Parise, and if he is traded, one of LAC’s freight cars will be required to bring all what he would bring in return. If healthy again, expect a minimum five-year, $34 million deal for Parise.

IL13, I know. It’s a shell game. If we turned Sage of Bluesland loose on their a$$e$, to see the actual books, and how they’re being cooked, it’d probably be a startling discovery that the team, in fact, loses very little. Look at the payroll. It’s below the floor. Plus, there’s roughly $14 million in revenue-sharing from the more successful markets coming back to Atlanta, to offset whatever ‘might’ be their actual losses. If there are any. And just like in baseball, there’s no ‘punishment’ for the owners slipping the money right into their back pockets. There’s no ‘league mandate’ that the revenue-sharing dollars be put back into the next season’s payroll. And if it were proposed to be just that, the owners around the league would vote it down. They’d like the revenue-sharing dollars to go into their pockets. Or, to simply offset their losses, not be OBLIGATED to payroll for the next season. As a fan, I want that revenue-sharing money to go into payroll. I want the owners FORCED to spend more.

But, of course, (grabbing a metal pot and a wooden spoon, banging it until my eardrums bleed to drown out the sound of the next sentence) “spending money doesn’t guarantee success.” God, I never hear THAAAAT enough. Sheesh.

Greg, I don’t think Parise is leaving NJ. Lou always have a plan and a way to circumvent the cap. He’ll just stick Brian Rolston in the minors, or loan him to Europe. I wanted Travis Zajac this year, eyeballin’ the cap situation in Devils-Land. But nooooo, Lou Lam found a way to get around the cap, AGAIN. Clearly, this ’stashing of players’ needs to be addressed in the next CBA. I’d propose to solve it by saying, “any and all contracts written by the GM count against the salary cap, provided that they are stipulated at the NHL pay level.” The results? Go ahead, stash a Wade Redden in the minors … or loan Cristobal Huet to some European league … it’s still hittin’ your cap, baby! And the salary ACTUALLY PAID equals the cap hit. No more ‘dollar cost averaging.’ The salary is the cap hit, from now on.

But, of course, the owners and players alike would REJECT that proposal, summarily.

I’ll start the “over-under” on this recent spate of junk-trading at 12/1/11.

Be wary of false prophets…especially when singing the praises of GMs who have nothing to give….Some even sang the praises of Don Waddell for many years….Laughable, isn’t it? ***

I agree with Sage. These are all junk trades. These players will fizzle out after the novelty of being on a new team wears off. It happens every year. Anyone remember Andy Sutton, how about Hnat Domenichelli, Alexi Zhitnik, how about Erik Christensen, Rico Fata anyone? How could we forget the great Niko Kapanen? Peverly and Bergfors as well. The list could go on and on. Next season we will be parting ways with some of these guys because they are terds. They more score a few goals and get an assist or two and everyone will get all hot and bothered and then when next season comes they will be out there wandering around playing like 4th liners.

Where did this season go off the tracks ? We were in the top three in scoring in the entire league
for a couple months. We had cut down GA, quite a bit. We were beating teams and playing with confidence. Then everything has gone wrong. Starting with the 4-1 home loss to St.Louis it began.

Just what has happened ? We are the same team, basically, but we play disjointed game and
just cannot beat anyone it seems. Tonight was the absolute end of any playoff hopes.

We just look like losers, playoff fodder for real winning teams. What happened ???????

The GM has done a little, but not enough. It is just sad to see a season with such hope, burn out
so quickly as it has.

Stapleton pretty much outplayed everyone on the ice wearing blue tonite. Too bad Mason’s a freakin’ sieve in every first period he plays and our boys couldn’t find the net even with a GPS tracking device. When is Ramsay going to stop teaching them how to dump the puck in the corner and start teaching them how to make an accurate pass (or catch one on their sticks for that matter) or a deke move without the puck rolling into the corner? I’m so sick of these goal teases firing shot after shot into moderate traffic with no willingness to pay the price for a rebound or any clue as to how to redirect a damn shot to elude a sharp goaltender. Not that it wasn’t already over, but our goose is cooked in a deep frier full of kerosene.

So, now we’re going to decide the value of all trades in the span of 24, 48, 72 hours or one week? Using that same barometer, I guess you were thrilled with the Bergfors acquisition last February too?

The playoff talk is Fool’s Gold at this juncture, but the roster is somewhat better equipped past this season and the last time you could have made that comment was entering the 2007-08 season before the Hossa sell-off. Since there are no more Hossas to sell, the outlook is brighter.

It’s time for another “Onion News Network” update. Take it away, Brooke.

Brooke Alvarez: “Greetings. Grab your hard hat and grit your teeth, you’re now cleared to enter ‘The FactZone.’ We come to you now, with breaking news out of Atlanta. Our reporter on the scene, Jane Carmichael, brings this special report. Jane?”

Jane Carmichael: “Thank you, Brooke. I’m standing here, outside of Philips Arena, after yet another ‘heartbreaking’ loss by the Atlanta Thrashers.

Brooke Alvarez: “What? Again, with the Atlanta Thrashers? Boy, they sure are in the news a lot, Jane.”

Jane Carmichael: “You bet, Brooke. The NHL has built their marketing campaign around Atlanta, declaring them, ‘the most vital market in hockey.’

Brooke Alvarez: “Hmmn. I can see that. Wonder how ‘HockeyTown’ would react to that?”

Jane Carmichael: “Well, the news is NOT sitting well there. Our local affiliate in Detroit, ONN5, caught up with Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch for comments about the Atlanta situation.”

Mike Ilitch: “Well, ya know, I never really like to comment on things that don’t involve the Red Wings, directly. But, c’mon. I’m getting a little bit ’sick’ of this. Do you have ANNNNY idea how much of our suplus revenue has gone to prop up that Chattahoochee berg? Our farm club could beat the Thrashers. So, I’m just callin’ it, right here. Commissioner Bettman, I know you’re out there. My ‘final answer’ is No! No more money for clubs like the Thrashers!! Ya hear me!! We’re keepin’ our revenues for ourselves! If Atlanta needs rescuing, let them rescue themselves!!”

Brooke Alvarez: “Harsh words, from a normally subdued Red Wings owner. Still, you can’t help but feel he has a point.”

Jane Carmichael: “Well, Brooke. I decided to get the other viewpoint. I have an exclusive interview with Thrashers GM, Ric Dudley. Ric, how do you feel about your team, now that the trade deadline has come and gone?”

Ric Dudley: “Well, truthfully, I feel great. We significantly upgraded our team, ditching Sopel for Mark Stuart on our blueline, and Bergfors for Blake Wheeler up front. Plus, I can’t believe I fleeced Calgary out of a 7th rounder for Freddy Modin. And, I don’t mind tellin’ ya. Big sigh of relief on moving that Rissmiller contract out of our coffers. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but ‘toot-toot.’”

Jane Carmichael: “I do seem to recall you once proclaiming that … you’re ‘really good’ at what you do. And that no one can do it better. Respond to the assertion by Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch that he’s ‘no longer willing’ to share revenues with teams like Atlanta. He’s fed up with propping up your market. And he feels his farm club has a pretty good chance to take your Thrashers. Care to respond?”

Ric Dudley: “Jane, GM’s and owners alike to tend to self-inflate what they’ve done. And what they feel they have, organizationally.”

Jane Carmichael: “But not you. Right, Ric?”

Ric Dudley: “What’s that supposed to mean?”

Jame Carmichael: “Aren’t you running out of games to possibly be considered a playoff contender? Do you really think there’s enough time left this season to make up the difference?”

Ric Dudley: “Jane, I’ll have you know that we’re going to win all 18 remaining games. We’ll take every, single one.”

Jane Carmichael: “There you have it, Brooke. The Atlanta Thrashers are en route to 99-points this year, and some playoff hockey this spring.”

Brooke Alvarez: “Great job, Jane. And by the way, glad to see you took my advice on finally wearing some eyeliner. Much, much better.”

Jane Carmichael: “Brooke, I’m getting a little ‘tired’ of your catty remarks about my appearance. That’s not a compliment. That’s rude criticism that has no legitimate place in broadcast news.”

Brooke Alvarez: “Jane, it’s not my fault I’ve got the best chin in Cable TV news, and am the # 1 rated female anchor in North America, not to mention the most STALKED TV News personality in history.”

Jane Carmichael: Looks at the camera, disgustedly.

Brooke Alvarez: “Jane. I’m afraid I have to cut you off. We have more breaking news from Philips Arena. We go ‘live’ to Jane Carmichael, being a b1tch. Take it away, Jane?”

Jane Carmichael: “Oof! That’s it! I just can’t work under these conditions. I’m calling my agent! Gary! Gary! Get me the h*ll out of my contract.”

Brooke Alvarez: “Well, good luck with all that, Jane. Sheesh. You’ll be back, and begging to bask in the warming glow that only my shadow casts. Switching gears, Louisiana’s Governor has declared that legalizing gambling and prostitution can only go so far towards improving the lower 9th ward. What’s needed now, is legal, over the counter, heavily taxed freebase cocaine sales within the community. It’s the only fair thing to do … for the disadvantaged area, abandoned by its central government.”
