I dunno, not necessarily. Baie-Comeau will get a huge haul for him, hopefully, and maybe if they play those cards right they'll be better off than with MacKinnon. And what's good for the league as a whole is still good for the small markets... MacKinnon in the Q is better for everybody than MacKinnon not in the Q (if it was ever going to come down to that).

I can't wait to see this kid in action.

toshiro 07-11-2011 01:43 PM

He has the same last name as me.what does that tell you?

Jabba11 07-11-2011 02:15 PM

Halifax: MacKinno, Ciampini, Drouin, Frk...woh

vad87 07-11-2011 02:21 PM

According to a LHJMQ forum, Baie-Comeau received Grenier+Gelinas+ 3X 1st pick for MacKinnon.

ClasslessGuy 07-11-2011 02:27 PM

Idon't really know what to think about this... In a way it's good for the league but not really...

Great for Halifax

Courtnall6 07-11-2011 02:38 PM

Great for Halifax as long as he reports...he may still go the NCAA route. I'd like to think that they got a commitment from him though before pulling the trigger.

I know Drakkar's head coach Mario Pouliot personally, so obviously I find this to be a disappointing turn of events... BC is a small market that doesn't get enough recognition for being a quality organization.

Scotianhab 07-11-2011 02:42 PM

A very nice group of forwards now with Mackinnon, Drouin, Ciampini, Ashley, Ryan, Andrews, Frk, and maybe Erne.

Courtnall6 07-11-2011 02:49 PM

Supposedly they traded Erne's rights to Quebec for a first round pick, then included that pick in this deal.

Yeah someone on the prospects board said the Mooseheads traded Erne for 2 1sts & a 2nd. That seems like alot for Erne but I'll take it if true.

ClasslessGuy 07-11-2011 03:05 PM

Nice to have 2 first round pick for the next 3 years (BC) but can't select the best player available :P

Haliafax is possibly the worst run team in the Q, so no guarantee of success. For a team with their resources($$$) no way they should be cellar dwellars 3 years in a row.

Only that your name is MacKinnon, nothing more. By the way, Toshiro sounds Japanese. Is that your mother's maiden name? Just curious.

Fel 96 07-11-2011 03:29 PM

Erne to Quebec has been confirmed.

Good trade for the Remparts.

Halifax will lose again in the playoffs against Gatineau. It's a given.

We are cellar dwellers because of Brad Marchand. We paid a lot for that piece of **** and he gave us not a lick of passion. The worst mistake in the history of the Mooseheads, bar none.

He'll play, I know a guy around here (halifax) whose younger brother played with him and became good friends. Nathan Mackinnon was over at their house one day and told them before the draft, im paraphrasing " only way I play in The Q is if it's for Halifax"

He's a young kid and I really don't blame him, good for halifax, actually makes me wanna go watch some games this year
