I had a dream last night that Calgary brought back Regehr and traded their 1st rounder to get him. Even though I wouldn't mind if we actually make a move for him, I'd much rather see that happen.
As for the deadline, I really don't see these rental type deals affecting our future in any real way whether we're on the buyer or seller side. I don't consider Smid a rental because we should have a legitimate shot at signing him long term on a reasonable contract. He doesn't want to go anywhere and we can't really afford to lose him.
The moves I really hope we avoid are the Whitney/Visnovsky, Cole/O'Sullivan, Gilbert/Schultz "step back" trades that Tambellini has become famous for on deadline day. Combine that with both Drew Stafford's apparent availability and this team's history of trading for players they liked on draft day (Pitkanen, Nilsson, Brule, Teubert, etc), I can't help but be very nervous about what might happen at this year's deadline.
If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
