    NYR don't lose Raanta in the expansion draft, and protect Stepan (the "A"), just to trade them BOTH away for the ARI first round pick this year (and a defenseman with under 40 career NHL games)?

    I guess NYR didn't want CHI to win today's "headscratcher move of the day" award.

    That trade is silly on both sides. ARI trading away futures for guys who area almost 30 makes no sense either.

    To be fair DeAngelo has a pretty high projection ceiling and looked good in limited time on the offensive side of things in the show.

    Also, the 7th overall pick in this year's draft could land them Glass or Mittelstadt who project as top 2 centers.

    Oh yeah they freed up 6.5 million in cap space from a grossly overpaid #2 center.

    I'm concerned that Vegas hasn't been involved in nearly enough transactions this week and that it doesn't have enough first round picks.
    Eight. ....with a design on nine.

    6.5 is not grossly overpaid for a 2C lol

    Interesting. I guess that means they think their window is still another 4 years.

    Wonder if they'll make it all the way without ever reaching the conference finals.

    No draft picks in the 1st 3 rounds. They shot their bolt and now the interest is keeping fannies in the seats by putting lipstick on a pig.

    I stopped being a fan when I realized hockey decisions were made by the marketing department.

    I suppose the idea must be that the Saad/Toewes combination greatly exceeds the sum of the parts, hence the value. But yeah, losing Panarin hurts.

    A few quick thoughts.

    Was shocked by both trades, but mostly coz I was enduring graduation party prep week and busy as **** and didn't hear any chatter.

    I always thought Hawks fanboy overrated Saad and I believe that C-Bus overpaid him. Talent like Panarin's is uncommon and not easily replaced.

    Calmer heads though... Panarin (and Kane)... but especially Panarin, seemed pretty invisible in the Nashville series.

    I can see why they believe this is an overall upgrade. The Hawks won three Cups getting pushed around by physical teams, but the core is older now and maybe we need to be sturdier.

    It always bothered me to see us get beat down every playoff series, but the Cups spoke for themselves and how could I argue too much with that?

    I'll be happy if we can go a little more toe-to-toe with the less skilled, goon squad teams like the Blues.


    Hammer gone though hurts to the core. As a defensive defenseman myself - him because he's tough as nails, me because I have no hands - he was my hero.

    I wish the Wild would have found a way to get Panarin if he was available.
