Nice..now I have a team to root for.

Right now they'd play Chicago so it doesn't look too good though

It's nice that it can be no worse than a 5th. I figured it might be conditioned on him resigning or something that lessened its value. To have it be a 5th that can be improved by St. Louis winning...yeah. All for it.

The 12 most recent Sabres 2nd round picks: McCabe, Adam, Brennan, Schiestel, Enroth, Weber, Gogulla, Funk, Fabry, Roy, Thorburn, Pominville.

Not a bad list.

I don't see them winning a series but that's better than I expected.

Godspeed, Jran Lepl. Thanks for being a seemingly good guy and putting in two decent years prior to this train wreck.

Time to dust off my old Brett Hull jersey for round one.

Oh my god, greatest quote ever.

The fact that the conditional gets BETTER if St Louis advanced, instead of worse under some other condition, is awesome.

I see it probably turning into that 4th.

Yeah, that is pretty sweet. I'm glad they got what they got for him.

I'm gonna go ahead and toot my horn and say I've been predicting this since early-February. The Blues had a glaring need for a mobile LHD. LA exposed that flaw last year.

Wooo!Finally Leopold is gone.Surprised we didn't get a 2nd AND 3rd like Oduya brought back, but getting a 2nd in a deep draft is great for impending UFA Leopold.Won't miss him one bit.

I actually think I'd rather have them lose 1st round. Rather have a higher 2nd than a 4th instead of a 5th

Never thought that Buffalo would get much more than a 3rd for Leopold, I wonder (just to be safe... I'm kidding. Obviously they watched him) if the Blues have even seen him play this year. He would've undoubtedly walked this summer, so a 2nd plus a late pick is a great trade for him.

Nice job, Darcy. Exactly the kind of trade we were looking for.



Here's the deal with the conditional 5th too:

Quote:
Jeremy Rutherford @jprutherford

Here's condition of 5th round pick to BUF: If the #stlblues win one playoff round this year, BUF gets Blues' 4th rounder instead of 5th.

Armstrong says that "Leopold touched every part of the game in Buffalo" meaning...he's versatile and good at ...everything?

I'm pretty sure how you do in the playoffs doesn't affect draft position until you make the conference finals

I believe it does, I think all teams that make the 2nd round pick lower than teams knocked out and teams in 3rd round lower than those knocked out in 2nd.etc. can anyone clarify? Also I wasnt aware blues were in 8th. If they miss the playoffs this could end up being a steal
