But at the end of the day it's no biggie...a new 7th is easily obtainable if so desired.
We got a 24 year old player that could possibly still improve and become a regular NHLer. They got a 28 year old player who is an inconsistent, borderline NHLer who is unlikely to ever improve. And the pick is a conditional 7th in 2013, most likely on the condition that they re-sign EC.

Maybe he plays well there and they re-sign him? He played well enough for us after we claimed him on waivers that we gave him a 2 year deal, so it's not out of the question.
