Yeah, Hansen has evolved into a very good player. A guy who can pretty much do it all: skate, check, play up and down the lineup and pop in some goals. He's probably one of the best bargain players in the league right now @ $2.5M. I don't mind trading Verby and Hammer for sure @ the TDD, but with Hansen, I think it would take much more serious thought. It really depends what we can get for him. If we can get an earlier first round pick or a very good top young pospect(s), then we gotta seriously consider it. Another factor is if our mgmt thinks we'll be Cup contenders in the next couple years. If yes, then we should probably keep him. If no, then it may be best to move him. He still has 2 years on his contract after this season, so JB is in no rush to move him. We don't have to shop him around, but we should listen to offers and see if anyone offers a shitload for him.

Burrows was great value for his contract too when he was making $2 million. Now not so much. Are we seeing the best of Hansen? Do we re-sign him for 5 years 4.5 per? I think with his stats, if he keeps it up, that's what he will command. I love Hansen but if we can get a decent return I'm all for trading him sooner rather than later. He may never be worth what he is right now. But your points are bang on.

IF Hansen's value is at his peak right now (awesome contract, playing uber, speedy hockey with a chip on his shoulder every shift), would you package him up with Shink and target Drouin + Coburn as it seems stevie Y would want to package coburn out as well.

Semi-blockbuster deal.

Hansen = Higgins in his prime. Versatile, but replaceable.

Wouldn't it be nice, just once, to sell high on a player and get maximum value? If Benning has the chance to do that, he should take it. The guy is having a career year.

Hansen will be washed up by the time we're a competitive team again anyway. He's been a great soldier for us but that's pro sports.

I also believe his voice irritates the refs, and almost certainly cost us a Stanley Cup in 2011.

Edited for your reading pleasure Rummy.

And yes, I'm going to assume that Benning will listen to offers and pull the trigger if anyone offers him a shitload for Hansen. #hasnothappenedyet

He made a gorgeous pass to set up the Pens first goal and then got walked by Malkin on the tying goal. Somehow he ended up +3 which is fascinating .

LOL

Pressured by the pens, 5 on 3, off the draw, Luka, Stalwart, Sbisa, lifts one bckhand that is gloved down at the pint and passed to Malkin who shoots past a slow reacting Miller for a goal. Of corse HF LeDuc Blooby and Co. who rathe Luca, Stalwart, Sbisa attempt to ring it, from within the circle, back around the end boards directly to a waiting Malkin.

Next, Luca, Stalwart, Sbisa caught by his team mates making a sloppy change with all backing off the puck in fear of a too many men call, leaving Luca, Stalwart, Sbisa in no mans land.

Luca, Stalwart, Sbisa is +6 in his 22 games played this season.
