This is so dumb. Why does it matter that it was the captain who was traded? C or not he makes that trade - Buffalo is a rebuilding team and Pommer was an asset. Ottawa, Tampa Bay, the Islanders, Dallas, Calgary and Edmonton all lost (traded, bought out, left in FA) their captains, all of whom were longer serving captains than Pominville, at some point this year. The ones who were traded didn't get anywhere close to the package Regier did. You're making a problem out of nothing here.
These videos are fantastic, I've really loved the two draft related ones they've done. Wish they were longer. Also becomes clear that the rumoured trade up to 5 was in order to get Ristolainen, making the 2013 draft that much sweeter.
