My point is, we're seeing more agressive moves out of Regier, so I wouldn't be shocked.
I didn't think the Ehrhoff thing was all that bold. The odds are long on 4th rounders ever making it to the league, and he probably knew they could meet Ehrhoff's demands.

The Hodgon trade was a bit more bold, certainly. I do recall, though, several stories that other teams didn't even know Hodgson could be had and Gillis saying there were only 4 or 5 players for whom they would've traded Hodgson, so that helped to limit suitors. I imagine the Avs are looking to send O'Reilly to the EC, so that helps. Still, I wouldn't be shocked if there are 10-12 teams trying to acquire him. I fear that Regier won't have the winning bid, and we'll eventually see what that bid is.
