Not surprising after his little miss the bus rant on that Western trip last year. I kind of knew his days were numbered after that. Not a team guy.

It's possible. The 5th we got from Calgary was 138th overall and we picked Trunev with it.

Yeah our depth at centre is incredible.

This move makes absolutely zero sense and probably will bite us in the ass.

I guess we can assume Grabs was probably going to be the comp for Sundin. I doubt it was a draft pick (as we've seen the Leafs still seem to enjoy tossing them around)!

I'm shocked we got a second rounder and a warm body in return for Grabovski. I like Grabovski and all but wow.

Sundin must be coming!

Well Grabs wasn't going to see much time anyway. Maybe he said he wouldn't play for Hamilton again and didn't want to sit in the press box.

I guess I'm in the minority, in that I don't mind giving up a kid who will probably pan out along the lines of Josef Balej for a 2nd round pick.

Well Pateryn got picked 128th, I think they would have wanted him with the 138th and Trunev with the next pick or something like that but that's just speculation.

He can usually keep control of the puck when flying through the air up until the point he hits the ice though. That's a skill I don't think you can teach.

On the Henry signing, seems a fine addition for the Hamilton d-men corps.

On the Grabs trade, don't care too much about him, still I just love the 2nd round pick for 2010 even though I would have preferred a 2009 pick...As far as Pateryn is concerned, it just follows the path to go with americans. But I didn't think we needed more depth on D.....unless we're ready to deal some for forwards...

Pateryn's description makes me think of a Mark Mitera type of player.

Good, now the Leafs have someone to fill the void Nikolai Borshevsky left, when he retired.

Do you guys think Gainey will be able to rob Fletcher a couple more times before someone somewhere realizes he's senile ?

i agree, assuming he turns out like balej then a 2nd and a pateryn is a pretty decent/great return

I like the trade. Plus, A. henry is a good addition (prob. to play in AHL), but I really liked him with Minesota a few years back

Henry has played almost 200 NHL games and played almost 200 AHL games for Hamilton.

Definitely a nice little depth signing and he's familiar with Hamilton already.

I don't like the deal but I'm glad Grabovski will get a real chance to play now.
