He's doing a fairly balanced overhaul....not bad. Adding Kessel, Phaneuf, Gusto, the college kids and, though out of his control, what looks like good development in Kadri, D'amigo, Gunnerson is really helping the loss of the picks.

I agree that he had room to get rid of some picks if you look at all the young additions and kids coming up....but I don't know if the value is there in Kessel.....either way...Kessel does fill a need.

Slam dunk!

Phenuef is a stud and a a leader,something this team needed so badly it hurt.He is also only 24 and a great example to Schenn.Giguere is a cup winner and can play number one filling another glaring hole in net.Then to top it off we dumped Blake and his contract.This is the best trade we have made since Gilmour.Calgary got fleeced.We also dumped some malcontents i.e Mayers.I have to give these trades an "A".Now let's get out of the bottom five and make the Kessel trade look better too.
