Picks are rough, but still no important warm bodies still seems like an improvement on D, we want to win now and it isn't a rental. I say fair, maybe slightly in Minn favor for now. If Zid comes in here and gets our lines breaking out fast and pumping our PP up then it will be different.
It wasn't too bad of a deal though. Let's face it, Palmieri was being showcased, you guys wanted foster gone. This team needed a jumpstart on D and central registry needed to be satisfied with the exchange. Prior trades could have been considered unbalanced as well.
It wasn't as bad as unbalanced as you think.
lol, right about that. What the heck is the problem tonight? I'm dissapointed we didn't get Johnson, Suter, Weber, etc. but come on.
Palmieri? Yawn. He was dorky looking anyway. Didn't seem too bright.
As long as he can get back to how he played 2-3 years ago I am ok with this, but ZERO goals in 50 games is not very promising. I understand he was unhappy and he is friends with sykora and elias and will try hard when he gets here but if he stays where he is we got F-ed
Palmieri stinks at the end of the day. Don't really care about that. The 2nd stings a little but Zidlicky will fit this team nicely. He'll be re-ignited on a team with good friends and has a year left. We'll see.
Look at some other trades that already happened this season and i simply don't see how this is overpayment. The 2nd and the conditional pick hurt, Palmieri has lost his NHL spot and i didn't expect him back any time soon and the other pieces have basically no value. If Zids plays anything like he did over the last 2-3 years, we have filled our biggest need for now.
