Not bad. I'd like to see him be more than a rental.

I'm not mad at all with what we're giving up. Rarely do we ever draft an NHL player let alone an effective one with anything other than a 1st rounder. This is exactly what we needed.

This is a good trade for us, HF always over values draft picks anyway. They weren't even ours to begin with. I really like this trade.
Why does the fact that they weren't "ours" make it better. Isn't it more likely that these two picks are both better than ours in the same round?

Wouldnt be surprised if this was the only trade. Doubt we see another trade unless we continue to lose.

I've been on the Grossman train since last season. Someone whose value > cap hit.

However, we have to re-sign him for this to be worth it.

EDIT: Was wrong about Versteeg.

I'm surprised the Flyers had a Contract Slot to not send a player the other way... I guess that was the 50th,

I'm happy.

Have a feeling he is going to be rock solid for us, plus flyer fans will really like his style.

I still think we need to pick up another 5-6 guy or go big and grab a top 4, but either way we need another dman... if anyone gets injured close to playoff time we are back to the same spot we have been in for the past while.

i hope he got on a plane hours ago and the trade wasn't officially announced until now

otherwise we're going to lose tonight against the sabres with meszaros and possibly bourdon out

Backlund was loaned (or released?) oversea's so I guess that counts as a lost contract. Now if they make another trade, they need to trade a player.

So what you're saying is, Nodl + 2nd +3rd for Grossman?

I like the player OK, but this is a waste of picks IMO

Homer and 2nd round picks = gone. It was only a matter of who we could have traded it/them for. Atleast we still have our first. I bet Dallas was asking for a 1st instead but took a 2nd and 3rd instead.

IIRC Versteeg was under contract... and Homer traded him.

So in the scheme of things we traded Richards, Powe, for Schenn, Simmonds and Nicklas Grossman. Not bad I say not bad

IMO, the only thing our 2-7 rounders are worth to this team is trade chips. Our 2nd rounders look really good until we actually draft the guys.

Description from Dave Brown:
  • Big guy
  • Solid stay-at-home defenseman
  • Gritty
  • Makes a good first pass
  • Not an offensive player, or a powerplay man.
  • Doesn't skate like Coburn but more of a physical body

Well in a really deep draft year, a 2nd would have been nice. I like Grossman and hope he can go back into pre-2011/12 mode where he was the Star's best d-man.

That being said, with Meszaros being hurt (we have no idea how bad) wouldnt be surprised this trade was also a reason for it.

Even if he isnt a huge splash, he should be a solid addition, and brings a lot of assets to our backend that we were lacking.

Plus it is always nice to get to see a new player in a flyers jersey and see how they perform isnt it?

good. I do not want to move anyone who holds value to be honest. Not ready to give up on JVR. the goalie needs to step up and they need to draft a solid D prospect.
