We get Connolly/Lombo/Stekel off the books, Another year off Komi which may make him more attractive to move when Hockey resumes. And our prospects get a full year to just play AHL hockey. Without the pressure of yo-yoing up and down to the big club. If we get another lottery pick out of it - it will be a dream come true.
Burke would have succeeded at rebuilding through the draft despite his every attempt not to LOL.
(If only we had hung on to Sequin/Hamilton/Rask)
Sure would've liked to have traded MacA for that 1st rounder now!
We never had Seguin or Hamilton and Burke never traded Rask. This gets tired. If you want to moan about that trade you should wait until Hamilton has something of a career and Seguin prove he is better, because basically we got the best player in the trade and you are just hoping the others prove to be worth more. If Hamilton settles in as a number 3 or lower d-man and Seguin is close to Kessel career wise your complaints will seem pretty petty, actually, they already do. Even then you have no way of knowing who we would have drafted in Hamiltons spot so its pretty rediculous.
