Ya Calder mentioned this in the Prospect thread.

Real great news for Sauer who went from a very bad team to a top team in the league. He should get very far in the playoffs now with the Hats. He will probably be paired on the top pairing with Kris Russell (our Ryan Russell's brother....who is currently playing as the 5-6 defensive pair for Canada in the WJCs)

Not often do you see a captain of a team get traded but the Hawks are in full rebuild mode so they traded him away.

The Hawks had no choice but to move Sauer.They are a last place team going nowhere with a team made up of 16 year olds and Sauer wasn't going to be there past this season.Sauer is going to a first place team with an excellent chance at reaching the Memorial Cup

"To obtain a player of Michael's caliber, we had to move two good young prospects in Patrick and Lee," said Tigers' general manager/head coach Willie Desjardins. "We wish both players good luck and success in the future with the Winter Hawks' organization."

"Not only are we receiving one of Portland's best players but we are getting a player of great character," stated Desjardins. "Michael is one of the best defenseman in the WHL and knows what it takes to win. This is a very big step in helping our organization to be successful in our conference. We are very exited to have Michael join our organization," concluded Desjardins

Sauer is expected to play tonight for MH which begins a three game road trip-Calgary,Lethbridge and Swift Current.Three games in three nights

As i understand it, Sauer has always had a keen defensive intellect, and a great offensive potential. With the trade to a high-octane offensive team such as medicine hat, will Sauer be able to achieve a balance, or has he already reached it in Portland, and simply hasnt had a chance to showcase it yet?

Desjardins' comments make Sauer's exclusion from the U.S. WJC team all the more puzzling..........

They aren't puzzling, the US has the unwritten policy to deny spots to kids in the CHL. It's just sour grapes and finger waving to any other American kids that are thinking of jumping over. It must be fun to use teenagers as pawns and disregard their best interests.
