[ANA/ATL] Erik Christensen to Ducks for Eric O'Dell
"Of course giving Sather cap space is like giving teenagers whiskey and car keys." - SBOB "Watching Sather build a team is like watching a blind man with no fingers trying to put together an elaborate puzzle." - Shadowtron
"Used to be only Twinkies and cockroaches could survive a nuke. I'd add Habs to that. I'm convinced the CH stands for Club du Hypocrisy." - Gee Wally
EC has loads of raw talent and seems like a nice guy, but he's got zero confidence. He played really well over the past five games or so, but he's still shielding his bum left shoulder.
The end of the story is this: EC is not as good as Rich Peverley or Todd White - or even Reasoner, and Atlanta has plenty of third line centers in the system.
I like Crusher, and I hope he does well in Anaheim. Gives me a reason to watch them other than Pronger The Evil Giraffe.
DW did a great job for a rebuilding team with not a lot of assets. Every one thought he'd move Reasoner or Armstrong instead of Crusher, and the Havelid deal was smart too. I like that he got real prospects not just picks that can be hit or miss.
We drafted a better version of Colby...we call him Tyler Kennedy...or the guy we signed without giving up any assets who is also way better...we call him Matt Cooke...
Either way you slice it, we got a better version of him without giving up an asset...and by giving up Colby (in part), we got to the Stanley Cup Finals...hard to look back and regret any part of that...
