It comes down to

$$$. He was a 2nd round pick in 2000 and wanted the rookie cap. He and his agent didn't bend and at the last hour, he was traded to Toronto for a 2002 2nd rounder but the NHL didn't receive the fax in time so he went back in the 2002 draft was selected by Edmonton @ 36

Ironic that Calgary was slated to pick at 39 and were going to take him again but Edmonton beat them to the punch.

He signed for 500 000 a year with a 500 000 signing bonus and he had no choice but to sign as if he didn't sign with Edmonton, he would be unrestricted in 2004 draft but with a new CBA and new rules, why take a chance of playign junior hocky for 4 years when he was 85% NHL ready

Didn't the same thing happen with Matthe Lombardi going from the Oil to the Flames?

Again, not entirely true, but nobody seems to want to say anything else...

I'd love to hear a bit more of what really went down Hyped, if you can shed any of the details?

He has made vague allusions to having not signed with Calgary simply because he did not want to play there, as he did not like the way the organization seemed to treat their prospects at training camp, and contract talks, etc. Nobody will say anything directly, but this was the impression I got, anyway.

I briefly had something posted but deleted it. I'm pretty sure it goes against posting guidelines (I'd rather not reveal sources, identities, etc.). I apologize and in the future will refrain from jumping into conversations where I don't want to say too much...

Hey Hyped,

I wouldn't mind a PM either. A little skuttle-butt goes a long way when you're this far from home.

Cheers,
Geoff.

It's a bit early to say, both guys have done well. They bring different things to the table.

That being said, in a 7 game series I'd rather go to war with Stoll than Lombardi.

Too bad we weren't able to keep both guys.

I think both teams came out ahead. The Oil were looking for a leader who is great in the circle and on the PK that can still chip in some points, whereas Calgary needs extra scoring.

That being said I'd prefer Stoll
