I think ATL lost this trade. I like Buff but I didnt think he was worth a 1st round pick.

Id say at best this is a sideways move by ATL.

Versteeg is still supposed to go, wonder if Stevie Y has had any talks for him.

Its very very weird to be so quiet on the trade/rumor front with this team, I forgot what it was like lol.
Chicago probably benefits long term, but this is good for Atlanta in the present, they really need to win games and make the playoffs this season, the empty seats is nauseating to watch every time the Lightning play there (let alone at home)...Byfuglien, Sopel, and Eager are all NHL level players who can produce and give you a very good shot at winning.

This really hurts as a native Chicagoan, but having experienced the dismantling of the Lightning first hand, it's a little easier to take. Nothing is more painful than the Brad Richards trade, though the Boyle trade was right up there, even more so after seeing the senselessness of the Meszaros contract.
