basical we trade Lapierre for Mara and MacIntyre... and the Duck turn around and traded him for perreault and a 3rd pick... I rather have a 3rd pick then both Mara and MacIntyre...
This is I minor deal but it show that we seem to be giving away players making move just to make move...
Lapierre did request a trade so it might be a bit hard to critic, but don't they also have the responsibility to the fan to manage the asset in the best possible way... NO??

I think this is a other sideway move that turn out to be a other step in the wrong direction. even if are AHL golie is injured why give up someone to patch that hole sign a FA, pick someone off waiver, call up someone from in the systeme even get a lone from a other team...
I belive that Brett Festerling was a better asset then Drew MacIntyre and now it make the lapierre seem even worst.

The usual iirc. Didn't feel like he was being used enough/properly.

If so this makes a little sense
But not a ton
Sanford, Auld and MacIntyre are all UFA's this summer.

Hamilton has a really solid D with or without Festerling, they have the best goalie in the AHL but he's currently injured and there hasn't been any word on how bad. So the Dogs, who sit in 1st place, could miss the playoffs if they have to go with Mayer as their starter since he usualy is good for 4 goals a night, which if the Dogs had Desharnais and Pacioretty on the team still then it might be so bad but without them it would have been a nightmare to watch Mayer try to lead us into the playoffs.

Who cares?? What big assets are we talking about here? That 3rd pick is the last pick of the round. Max Lapierre - 3rd-4th line forward. Macgregor Sharp, Joel Perrault - 4th liners. Paul Mara, last pairing Dman. Brett Festerling - 7th/8th dman. Drew MacIntyre - 3rd/4th string goaltender.

At this level the only 'asset management' you need to worry about is adding players where you need them. Mara was acquired due to the exceptional circumstances regarding the Habs Dmen. MacIntyre was acquired due to an injury to arguably the most important Bulldog, and as someone else said the AHL is crucial for the development for many players. The Dogs NEEDED a goalie.

People gotta chill... do you need Carey Price to tell you so?

Steve Buscemi's...son!! (if he had one).



Really wished we kept Festerling. Then again, Sanford is injured, so...it was a move that had to be made?! (but still wish the asking price wasn't Festerling)

Just as I expected, it was a very boring day!!!

Although, Penner came close to being a Hab i heard. I am happy they didn't bite.

Dominik became a solidified #1 in Buffalo, at the age of 28. Pretty successful.
Huet was drafted when he was 26 and started playing at the age of 27. His name is on the Cup.

It's not like it would be the first time a goaltender hits his prime in his later 20s, early 30s.

This move was made to help out in Hamilton, no big deal

Report coming out from an Atlanta journalist at the Marinaro show today, saying how great he looked last year. That he had been traded based on the fact that there were just no room. But he seemed to think highly of him though he haven't seen him this year....

It sounds like I'm bashing MacIntyre here, but I promise I'm not. But you're talking about Hasek who would have been a #1 earlier but was backing up mid-90s Ed Belfour, and Thomas was one of the best goalies not playing in North America (much like Ramo now, except older). Huet is not really a good example either- he never won a single playoff series. And now he makes $5.625 a year to play in Switzerland.

Gentlemen- I admire your optimism (except on Huet), but I'm not expecting much more than a serviceable AHL goalie at this point.

Provided MacIntyre plays for anyone but the Habs by then...

I'm not expecting much either. Habs have Price, he is the now and the future. It simply was a minor league deal for Hamilton. I have no problem with that, just like I now have no problem with Mara and Sopel being traded to Montreal, basically due to all the injuries on the blue-line.

I was just pointing out that it's not unusual anymore, to see a goaltender hit his prime at a later age. Say what you want about Huet, the guy played good for Montreal and Chicago, and his name is now on the Cup.

The only thing I don't agree with is that we traded Lapierre in December because he was unhappy and there wasn't a big market. The market was bigger in February at the deadline because prices are higher on deadline day and Vancouver desperately wanted to add 4th line help.

Waiting 2+ months to move Lapierre when it was clear he wasn't happy wouldn't have been a good idea. We sold a bit low on Lapierre and bought a bit high on Mara, but the difference was pretty marginal as Mara filled a desperate need when we were down 5 d-men and White can replace Lapierre.
