I don't hate what Calgary did, because they're more likely to move up and steal a playoff spot as opposed to sinking to the bottom. They're adding someone who is going to be a first line player, and he just turned 22 years old. Last year, the Kings drafted a 20 year old in the first round. Not totally crazy if you'd rather spend your 1st round pick on a likely future 60-70 point player. And it's not like the Flames have been drafting that well as it is.
I recall the Flyers were considered evil for the Kesler offersheet too, so it's not just the small-market bullying.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
