Rockets send Shane McColgan and Jesse Astles to Saskatoon for Ryan Olsen, a 2nd and 5th round pick in todays bantam draft.
Not really surprising to see McColgan moved, he basically stalled this year and takes too many dumb penalties. I thought pretty highly of him last season but now... A change should do him well. Kelowna needed to add size as well, after a disappointing season.
If McColgan can find his game again, Saskatoon wins this trade.
Kelowna wins this trade by getting rid of McColgan. He had run out of time in Kelowna admist rumours he had dressing room problems, and was not very well liked by his teammates despite what the Kelowna puppet media says.
I am surprised people dont think about things like this when a team trades their leading scorer for the past two seasons.... Not to mention getting suspended for accumulating too may diving penlties.
As a fan I liked Shane in his rookie year and really vouched for the kid but the longer he wore a Rockets jersey the longer everyone in Kelowna realized he is not the guy we want leading our team
