The only trade where i felt we could have gotten a little more was the deVries trade. He has a very moveable contract, plus he played very well all year. But maybe Rachunek will show me something this year.

As for the rest of the trade...

We got Balej and a 2nd rounder for Montreal to RENT Kovalev for a few games, come on, thats a pretty good steal. Kovalev CANNOT play here, simple as that.

Leetch deal I believe was very much in our favore (i'd like to say steal as well, but will I get bashed for that?) We got Kondratiev, Immonen, a 1st rounder (Korpikoski) and a 2nd rounder next year in a deep draft.

For Malakhov we got Kozak AND a 2nd round pick next year in a deep draft...STEAL!

For Barnaby, we got a 2nd rounder and Liffiton and got to watch McAllister look terrible for a few games. Who woul dhave thought we'd get a 2nd rounder for him

How can you give these trades anything lower than a B+ or A?

As for the draft, im not going to touch that, because i would only be guessing, but from the looks of it, it looks like we did pretty well
