Great trade. We got all we could expect to get from a dude that has no future with Chicago. He was given EVERY chance to succeed in Chicago and he couldn't figure out how to be successful on a line with Kane, so we trade him and get what we can.
Good luck to him in Florida. That's probably one of the best places he could have been traded to.
Florida's 28th, meaning they'll get another high pick in the draft. If they keep the 3rd pick, they'll likely get Bennett or Dal Colle (both centres) and already have Barkov and Bjugstad on the team, with Trocheck and Shore on the bubble.
He was extremely impressive in the pre-season and he's very clearly on another level form a guy like Pirri.
It's as if the Hawks just traded a young, 50-point scorer because they have some prospect in the system. They traded a guy that couldn't establish himself on this team for picks.. and yes, having Teuvo Teravainen makes that trade a lot easier to make.
If you say so. I don't really remember many standout moments from him at all in the preseason. I remember he looked pretty solid, he wasn't a liability out there but I wouldn't call him extremely impressive by any means.

One particular play comes to mind against Pittsburgh, where Teravainen got the puck in the neutral zone, made a forward miss on a check, got the line, dangled wide on a Pittsburgh Dman that was trying to line him up and then made a perfect cross-ice pass to Patrick Kane who missed the net.
