This trade happened because of need in both teams. Vancouver needed young winger more and buffalo needed a Center more. they were drafted right around the same spot in consecutive drafts (Hodgson #10 2008 and Kassian #13 2009). Neither one had made an impact at the NHL level.

The fact that Vancouver was trying to win now had no bearing in this trade. Its not like Vancouver was acquiring a veteran for a playoff run.

i have talked about this in other posts of mine----

With a hard salary cap now a team cant create a fantasy hockey team of all stars. You need to utilize some cheap players to fill out your roster.

When it comes to forwards if you subbudget the cap to $37M for forwards, $26M for Dmen/G and $1.3M for call ups and deadline moves.

With the $36M if you allocate--- line 1: $15M , line 2: $10M, line 3: $7M, 5 forwards: $4M.

What teams would likely do is balance out the roster over 3 lines where you may have 1 high paid player, 1 medium paid and a cheap player. line 1($12M): $7M C, $4M LW, $1M RW line 2 ($11M): $4.5M C, $1.5M LW, $5M RW line 3($9M): $2.5M C, $2.5M LW, $3M RW
I don't know how anyone who actually followed the situation can believe this.
