Well the 1st from St.Louis can still only be next year's. Pretty sure the Flames fans will be cheering for the Blues to get in at #8

Yes, many idiots.

What does he mean probably? lol

That pick is going to be pick 31 or 32. They just traded their 2 best players. Calgary is going to finish last or 2nd last in the league.

That pick is such a gift.

You never know, the remaining players, now that there is no pressure to make the playoffs may play a lot better.

Yep...the Leafs screwed their fanbase out of a high pick for years doing that.

For all the crap Gauthier got on here...he went against the fanbase and a lot of media in keeping Price when the easy move would have been trade him(and get bigger return) and sign Halak.

The Cammalleri deal looks golden right now, though he has bounced back, his 6 mil cap hit next year make him virtually unmoveable...we got a pretty good prospect il Holland, a big winger on a good cap hit in Bourque plus a 2nd rounder that's almost a 1st.

Good, did not want them having a monster draft with 3 picks in round 2 in June.

Flames and Preds down 2-0.

Stars down 3-0.



Now 3-0 Oilers against CGY. Is that team FINALLY putting it together?
I'm relieved the Oilers are winning. If they continue piling up 1st or 2nd overall picks they might resemble the Oilers of the 1980s and become the biggest obstacle to the Habs' chances of winning the Cup in this decade.

I also want NSH to have a top 6 pick to avoid teams like BUF/TB/WSH/PHI having one.

Same thing applies for DAL and PHX.

This was my main issue. I picked Price over him for several key reasons. Price can play a lot of hockey and stay relatively healthy. He also is a big body and does not get pushed around.

Halak, as good as he was could not play a heavy workload. He'd also put up a stinker after a good 4-5 game stretch. Then the fact that he was small and would get pushed into his net easily and often.

I was about to disagree then saw the poster's name. Carry on.

Between our 1st pick and Calgary's 2nd, they may only be a few spots removed from one another. Not to mention the other 2 2nd's we have. Things are looking great.

What a difference a year makes. I'm almost as excited for the draft as i am for the Playoffs!!

Why is that a problem if he's scoring at a 30 goal pace, which he's been doing in Calgary?

I wouldn't call that deal "golden" just yet. Going into the playoffs as we are right now, IMO we'd be much better off with Cammalleri than Bourque and a high 2nd rounder.

Cammalleri would have been swallowing up a roster spot that we are better allocating to someone else, like one of the Gallys. Who's to say Cammalleri doesn't get injured(he has a history) and is not effective?

I don't really get your arguments here...Cammalleri wouldn't be taking an "extra" spot, he'd be taking the one Bourque has now.

And yes, he could get injured, anyone could. The guy we traded him for got injured, **** happens. But Cammalleri hasn't been hurt...so why is that relevant?

If it's not a problem, let's see if they can trade him and get assets back. I doubt anybody bites on his 6 mil 13-14 cap hit.

TO just locked up their Vezina goalie, Macyntire. #STUF #HUGE #VEZ #TOML

Oh, and as much as I hated the Cammy we had before the trade... I think I kinda miss him. He'd be huge going in the playoffs.
Cammy for Gionta and a second !!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN

**** Bruins just got Jagr. They went from boring and predictable to dynamic with one trade.
