Jiri Tlusty To Carolina For Philippe Paradis
 
Complete robbery by the canes. Discuss!

Good for Jiri.

We wasn't going to do well here.

Yeah it was bad. But the Leafs have made some great moves themselves over the past few years. The Gardiner/Lupul trade ****, the JVR trade is going good so far, got Franson for Lebda lol, and the Dion trade of course, etc.

Lobstertainment 03-01-2013 03:42 AM

We flipped Paradis to Chicago for Percy

Carolina is winning the trade so far since Tlusty is in the NHL and a part of their team but let's see how Percy turns out first.

You win some you lose some. Happy for him, never liked him though. Were stacked on the wings anyways.

Perry
JVR

Typical Maple Leaf . Rush a prospect to the NHL, the "average" fans instantly turn on him because he's not producing like a Doug Gilmour or Mats Sundin, and eventually the mounting pressure and stress of the situation just kills a player's ability to succeed. The trade itself did not bother me, but it's a perfect example of how not to develop prospects.


I still think the Alex Steen trade was a lot worse.

Still not a fan of Tlusty. He's more a passenger than anything.

This is very true. He's the Bozak of the Hurricanes...minus the faceoff superpowers and great hair.

Tlusty is a catcher not a pitcher.

Rare Jewel 03-01-2013 04:59 AM

boo hoo


Wait for Leivo.

HOCKEYGOON 03-01-2013 05:23 AM

Not really missing Tlusty at all...

MapleLeafs9 03-01-2013 05:26 AM

Paradis got us Versteeg

Versteeg got us a 1st and a 3rd

The 1st and a 3rd ended up being Percy and Leivo

I think it will work out pretty good.

Not quite... We flipped Paradis + Stalberg + DiDomenico for Versteeg. You have to include the value of Stalberg as well, Paradis (Tlusty) was only part of the value we sent in that trade.

Versteeg was later traded for a 1st and 3rd, which became Percy and Leivo. So essentially we gave up Tlusty and Stalberg (and DiDomenico, but he wont be an NHLer) for Percy and Leivo. Hard to say how it will turn out, gave up two decent NHLers, got two decent prospects in return.

Ash35 03-01-2013 07:12 AM

I couldn't care less that he is gone. He wouldn't crack our top 9 IMO.

Pyrophorus 03-01-2013 07:17 AM

The true definition of a late bloomer.

ULF_55 03-01-2013 08:49 AM

And another example why you develop your prospects before you judge them as NHL players.

I think Ron Wilson was the problem with Tlusty, Steen and Colaiacovo. Have to wonder if Kadri would have been gone as well if he wasn't a Burke pick.

Tlusty played with a shoulder injury 2010-2011, had off season surgery and then in the 2011-2012 season had 17 goals and 36 points playing 14:54 a night, 58 seconds of that PK time.

Seems like a good support player that has some hands that you can use on any line.

Not the best pick they could have taken, but quite a few teams passed on Giroux.

You nailed it.:handclap:

Mind you, the Tlust trade bothered me big time when it went down.

Horrid trade.

BonMorrison 03-01-2013 09:03 AM

If anyone here watches Hurricanes games, Tlusty isn't simply "riding shotgun" with Staal and Semin. He's legitimately becoming a very good player.

ACC1224 03-01-2013 09:07 AM

Every team has trades like this in their closets, nothing to whine about.

Yep.

Looks like they finally got it right with Kadri's development.

yeah but Tlusty had been exposed here in the big smoke

calcal798 03-01-2013 09:12 AM

Didn't Tlusty through this trade and the Versteeg trade finally end up getting us Percy and Leivo?
