Outside the Pronger deal to the Oil that many years ago (and I still think he fell into the Oil laps rather than us finding him), I can't think of many 'smart' pick ups.
Anaheim's 2nd round pick will be better than Ottawa's so it's pretty clear they could have made the deal. Bishop has been talked about on here for a couple of weeks now so it's not like it's a surprise. So, I ask again, was Tambo sleeping?
I keep trying to preach this. I was ripped apart in the "Bring a nice book with you on monday" thread because apparently the trade deadline isn't somewhere a team like Edmonton can improve their future.
