Pest with some skills, if I remember correctly. I'll grab the old Hockey News and confirm.

Wasn't in THN's top 100 for the 2008 draft, but found this thread on him from a while back:

He's not. He had 20 points in the ECHL last year.

Weak trade, but I guess Fehr had little value at this point. I'll be rooting for him.

Dannick Paquette 6'0 210lbs, RW

Paquette is a perfect example of a player that teams love to have on their own side, but hate to play against. Perhaps the only thing more agitating than his gritty style of play is the fact he also has the ability to bury the puck and make the opposition pay for their mistakes and indiscretions. A burly forward, Paquette’s game is raw and his discipline is sometimes lacking. He drives the net with fervor, but his skating needs work.

He will have to be more disciplined at the next level, but without neglecting that antagonism which has made him an effective player. Paquette must be more committed to training and working on his fitness level if he is to advance to the next level.
Fwiw the #19 prospect for the Jets(worst prospect)

You are correct, pest/fighter/borderline player when he was in the Q; IIRC, there were reports that he grew up a bit and had more balance overall in his game, but that's his game.

Good on Mcphee for sending Fehr home. Not thrilled about the return, but I'm glad to know he's no longer here...as the way we used him was infuriating.

Boudreau was never going to give Fehr a real chance so this doesn't surprise me at all, except that I figured McPhee would wait until he was healthy enough to get a better return.

I don't understand the lack of appreciation for Fehr from management. He was always in Bruce's doghouse whereas Flash could do no wrong.

I hope this means they're bringing back Hannan or signing a Vet F for cheap because this stinks as a salary dump.

Kind of agree, wishful thinking I thought he could fetch a 2nd at worst a 3rd. Guess the Caps had no leverage.

So the whole concept of coaches having favorites and those they don't care for is too complex?

I think the return had something to do with McPhee doing Fehr a solid and sending him home.

I can only hope this guy turns out to be a Kaminiski/Verot type of player.

But they did. Plenty of time and Fehr is a young 20 goal scorer. This makes no sense isolated.

Paquette is nobody. This is your salary dump. Fine with me. I like Fehr but think the injuries will preclude him from ever being worthwhile.

Who has two busted shoulders, making 2+, coming off a bad season.

The Caps had no leverage.

He essentially did fetch a 3rd. A 4th plus a prospect is pretty much equivalent to a 3rd.

This seems to me like a combination of a salary dump and McPhee doing a Fehr a solid by sending him home. He deserved one, considering how he was completely frozen out of a scoring role on the team.

Or maybe he just didn't have the value around the league that we thought.

Sucks that he was traded to a team in the same division, but I am glad that GMGM traded him to a team he wanted to go to. Let's hope the Jets realign to another division next year so that I can root for Fehr again. Good luck EF!

Tbh though, I was never a Fehr fan. Was very underwhelmed by him in his tenure here, the return is what it is I suppose.
