Im sure Vermette will be quite successful in Phoenix where he'll probably play a roll better suited for him and have a better team around him. If he was the only one sucking this year, then maybe it would be more of his skills declining, but i've got a feeling everyone that is shipped out of him will play much better then they did when they were here.

This is so true, and frustrating beyond words.

[QUOTE=Columbus Mike;44696475]"We" turned him into a marginal player? How about some player accountability?

Is it fair to trade a guy into a cesspool of despair then blame him for playing like crap?

Vermette played two full seasons in Columbus. In terms of points, they were his first and third best. This is his eighth full season. Pretty much the same coaching staff this year as last, yet his performance has dropped significantly. It's easy to blame SH, the coaches, etc, but sometimes it falls on the player, and I feel that's the case with Vermette.

Here's what I hoping happens with this trade is: Phoenix upgrading their team causes LA and SJ to get nervous and makes a trade or two to upgrade their teams. Since Carter has been rumored for LA, it helps the CBJ get a deal done.

Or "turlet" if you like your squirrel rare.

Just trying to avoid writing paragraphs which even I wouldn't read.

Vermette hit the ice tonight with Phoenix and had 17:12 TOI and was a -1. BTW, Phoenix won.

Vermette rang two blasts off the post. Generated a lot of chances. The -1 had nothing to do with him. Smith turned the puck over, bounced off of Korpikoski's skate and in. It was an own goal.
