Blacker was a throw-in. The real asset is the 3rd/2nd rounder. If Blacker turns out to blossom in a new environment a la Maroon, great. If not no big deal. I was hoping for a 2nd with Holland and considering they miraculously took Staubitz off our hands this is great value. Toronto knows what kind of player they're getting. They aren't about to part with a D-man prospect they like and a potential second round pick. Holland isn't worth it.
