2 solid moves from Gillis. Didn't give up much and got decent players.

I like the Higgins rental, he's easily our best top 6 replacement winger in an emergency.

Lappy, meh not great not terrible but not that cheap either at $900K considering he's not a stud #4 (ie Reasoner was only $1,150,000).



Suprised they didn't take a bigger run Reasoner though, Shirokov and pick would have gotten it done IMHO (chances are we lose Shirokov to Russia next year, his cap hit of $1,300,000 might ensure he has no spot anyway). All I can think is Tallon/Reasoner are working on a deal for next year and with Reasoner's wife pregnant he wasn't prepared to ruin any good will for anything less than massive overpayment.

Speaking of Tallon, is he on drugs? Did the owners tell him he's being let go in the off season and he's undercutting the team? I have no idea what is going on in his brain.
