WOW, that's crazy. I was hoping that the Oil Kings would trade for him but didn't actually think it would happen. It's going to be awesome to see him play in our own backyard. I wonder if they will pair him with Reinhart? Eh, probably not so they can spread the wealth over 2 pairings.
I think that Musil is our most underrated prospect so it'll be interesting to see how he plays on a very good team where he doesn't have to be depended on to do everything.
It was something you had to know that was coming. I am sad that Geertsen is gone, but you will like him. He is coming along nicely and when he fights he likes to throw bombs.
Oh definitely (I even called the return minus the fact I thought they'd get a 2nd as well), but I was hoping it would be later in the year. I'm sure Geertsen is a good dman, but that's all the Giants really have now, with Vannieuwenhuizen and Orban already playing that role in the top 4.
I'm interested to see how much Musil climbs up our prospect rankings now that more people will see him
Shmoorkoff really isn't that good at all. He's sheltered as hell out there, the coaches seem very selective when/who he gets to see on the ice. I know he brings that toughness/fighting/character element which they don't really have because now Geertsen is gone, but he could very well be going down to Jr. A next year, he's only played in like half the games so far and he's an 18-year-old rookie..
