CBJ trades Antoine Vermette to PHX. #tsn

Vermette to Phx
McKenzie is tweeting we have traded Vermette.

Hearing a pair of draft picks are going from PHX to CBJ for Vermette. Details to follow.

OldGoaltender 02-22-2012 12:07 PM

Hopefully it's for a first.

Matthew 02-22-2012 12:08 PM

I'll guess a 1st and a 3rd.

Nikita Filatov 02-22-2012 12:08 PM

Rather would have had a Goncharov or Summers (someone closer to NHL ready) but hoping it's still some good value. Still thinking 1st + 4th.

EDM 02-22-2012 12:10 PM

If it is a first, I could live with it. And Vermy would probably enjoy the playoff chase in Phoenix.

I could live with a first by itself....

ClevelandJacketFan 02-22-2012 12:12 PM

A second and a fourth according to Porty, plus a minor league prospect according to McKenzie.

Scottrocks58* 02-22-2012 12:12 PM

Phx fan here, coming in peace. Can someone give me the low down on Vermette? I don't really follow your team that closely.

Also, thanks for last night. Last night was wonderful. Was it wonderful for you too?:)

EDM 02-22-2012 12:13 PM

Now, I don't like it. Is this the start of Howson selling low?

ClevelandJacketFan 02-22-2012 12:14 PM

The official trade is as follows:



As per #tsn colleague @Real_ESPNLeBrun, CBJ gets 2012 2nd rounder (OTT's), 2013 5th rounder and netminder Curtis McElhinney. #tradecentre

a 2nd round this year, a 5th next? Not joking, but McElhinney might be the best piece for us in this deal, could potentially be up with this team for the rest of the season....

ConoR187 02-22-2012 12:19 PM

lmfaoooooooooooo what a return... what a joke this is. what are the odds that stupid 2nd rounder could be even close to a 50 point center thats good at faceoffs and defense? haha

Matthew 02-22-2012 12:20 PM

The McBackup is ours?!?!?

SuperGenius 02-22-2012 12:20 PM

First impression:


ClevelandJacketFan 02-22-2012 12:22 PM

I'll go on record as liking it, but that's only because of my disdain for Vermette's abilities.

I never really thought he was much of a player. Overrated defender, average offensive player. Great faceoff guy, though. Hope he does well because he seems like a really nice guy.

Hopefully this means RyJo is back in the lineup.

CBJSprague24 02-22-2012 12:22 PM

I'm kinda lukewarm at this point. I've been more disappointed about trades. I guess it's a good thing that GMSH got something breathing for Vermy, but my new question is "Which goalie's on the way out?".

leesmith 02-22-2012 12:22 PM

That's the best he could do???

JacketFanInFL 02-22-2012 12:23 PM

Pure salary dump. Obviously Patrick wasn't impressed with him and he wasn't in the future plans for the franchise.

This is probably about his market value, but I had thought a lot of other teams were very high on him.

Feicht 02-22-2012 12:23 PM

Well this is my first post in some time (had computer trouble, then couldn't remember my password :D) but... wow... I suppose I am not incredibly surprised Vermette was traded... but I would have expected more?

megashock5 02-22-2012 12:23 PM

Crap return.

I can't believe Howson is allowed to orchestrate changes at this point.

Fred Glover 02-22-2012 12:24 PM

I am okay with this. It takes almost $4 million off the books for the next few years. And I will not miss his blind, no look passes to the opposing team. Good luck in Phx, Vermy, and thanks for being a Jacket.

BJFan1 02-22-2012 12:25 PM

Stats (per Yahoo!) on McElhinney...


ljj 02-22-2012 12:25 PM

Glad he's gone, but would have liked more return. Odds of 2nd rounder making onto big club?
