I doubt Parse gets a spot out of camp. The good news though is that if we have depth problems or injuries, I'm sure Parse gets a look before other bums. At least we won't have Sestito or Mills playing again like last year hopefully. At least we have enough D depth too that we don't have to see Jay Leach back here again either!
I don't know.
I think Parse would definitely be in the running, he's been on LA's roster the past two years just had tons of setbacks with injuries. He's proven to be an NHL player, and he never really had much of a chance to play in LA between injuries and how their roster shaped out.
So starting in 2002, the net fallout from the Arnott/Langenbrunner deal is as follows:
New Jersey gives up:
39th overall 2011 (Magnus Hellberg)
210th overall 2012 (Jaycob Megna)
3rd Round Pick 2013 (TBD)
New Jersey receives:
75th overall 2011 (Blake Coleman)
96th overall 2012 (Ben Thomson)
*A total of 20 unique assets were moved
*Five intermediate assets were moved more than once
*Occurred over seven different transactions involving six different teams
*Gave up 10 assets (four full-time NHLers, three prospects with <100 NHL GP, three draft picks)
*Six forwards, two defensemen, one goaltender, one TBD
*Gave up a combined career 1507 points in 3198 GP (.47 PPG)
*Six assets are still with the club they were given to
*Received 5 assets (two full-time NHLers, one prospect with <100 NHL GP, two draft picks)
*Three forwards, one defenseman, one goaltender
*Received a combined career 1432 points in 1827 GP (.78 PPG)
*Three assets are still owned by New Jersey
*One could make the argument that the Steckel to Toronto deal facilitated the NJ's 4th + Joe Sova --> Alexei Ponikarovsky trade
What does this mean? I have no clue. I was just bored and thought it might be interesting.
If we didn't **** the bed that season that trade would of looked a ton better.
I was a huge Halischuk fan thought really liked the kid thought he could end up being special here.
I saw Halischuk as a fringe 2nd liner/damn good 3rd liner with a knack for scoring clutch goals. I wasn't really that bummed when we traded him, but looking back, we could really use a winger like him right now.
I kinda wanted us to draft Hellberg, but of course the goalie factory in Nashville takes him. It stings a little less using the 2nd from Arnott to get Zids, who ironically enough, began his NHL career playing in Nashville.
Well we traded Halischuk + 2nd rounder for Arnott. Then flipped Arnott for a 2nd rounder and Steckel. Then flipped Steckel for a fourth-rounder. So basically we traded Halischuk for half a season of Arnott, quarter of a season of Steckel and a fourth lol (plus a swap of 2nds).
You forgot to include the Cup that was the direct result of the Langenbrunner/Nieuwendyk deal, that's a big factor in assessing the deal. And I'd add Langenbrunner's captaincy as an intangible benefit too.
We could get Halischuk back. I mean we traded Salmela for Havelid, and then got him back the next year with Kovy right? Haha!
It would be real funny if we got Bergfors back. Then we can have the biggest forward asset we gave away in that trade, and Kovy all here together!
A lot of people seemed to think Oduya was coming back at the deadline. The even funnier thing would have been that Oduya would have ended that same contract, that he was signed to by us in the first place. Glad we didn't get him back though.
Already marked 18.11. on my calendar -> 15199 crazies rocking blue and me, rocking red&black for the ocasion can't root against my Bears, but must do something for Clarkie. BTW- I'll be right behind his bench. So - can anybody spare a certain player card, so I can show him? Just for gigls
edit - yeah we are better, but they got Clarkie, and we got effin Penguin ...
