My condolences Flames fans. As a diehard Toronto Raptors fan I'm no stranger to the effects of incompetent management on a franchise. At the very least you guys are unloading salary and stockpiling picks. Good luck.
Dude, we want the Blues to make the playoffs... It's a protected 1st! If the Blues don't make it, we get a 4th 2013 and their 1st 2014.
GO BLUES GO!!!! GO BLUES GO!!!
Look at it this way we have two picks in this years draft and even if we do not have the Blues 1st rounder this year at least at least we will get their first 1st 2014 meaning we would have two first rounders in 2014 if we do not trade our pick.
Berra has told his former team EHC Biel that he will go the NHL next season. So he will play next season in the NHL/AHL. He was absolutely terrific in the playoffs this year and has for me absolutely the skills to be a NHL Goaltender. For me he is better than Hiller (Anaheim) for example.
So the return is maybe not that bad.
He has a 3.01 GAA and .906 SV% playing in the Swiss league. I doubt he will ever play in the NHL.
