great value for a former first round pick from 2007... i was hoping Sather would do a trade like this low risk high reward.. great move for the Kings.
You mentioned Boyle for Ellerby (as did maybe one or two others, I believe). He got traded for a 5th. I don't understand why Glen isn't offering a 4th or a 5th + a cond. 7th or something. Loktionov went for a 5th. Lovejoy went for a 5th. Now Ellerby for a 5th. At least either of the Dmen could have helped our bottom pairing. Not sure why we don't do something like this. These are decent young guys who will get a better chance to play in their new locations and will likely cement themselves as third line/bottom pairing guys, getting moved for extremely cheap. We need to be in on this kind of activity.
