If Hammer is ever traded we will miss having this depth. But more than that why would we give away someone to help out a divisional rival? Other than saving a few hundred thousand dollars, we get nothing out of this other than a really crap draft pick, so why would we help the Flyers out?
To make matters worse, we originally traded a 4th round pick to acquire Timmander, so Milbury essentially traded a fourth round pick for a seventh round pick!!!
Oh well, I'm glad he'll be suited up against the Rangers tonite at least!
Me too. Wake up Lou. Bobbys doing a pretty good job.
