I guess our players are overvalued now because we won the cup.
Westgarth is a great guy, but he doesn't bring much to an NHL level hockey team unless they get into a bar fight after a game. Even if Stewart never plays for us, it's still a great trade in terms of asset value.
Who would've ever though that the undrafted Kevin Westgarth who has 1 goal 4 assists in 90 NHL games would land us a 4th round pick and 6th round pick and former 1st round pick who had 9 goals and 11 assists in 77 games just last season....
Good team guy, but just no spot for him. Plus if you get 2 picks, I think you have to do it. Stewart isn't anything special either, but he's a UFA after this season, so it opens up cap and contract space for next year.
Wow! Westy is a great teammate but he just fetched a ton. I would have done it for the draft picks alone. Stewart is a big guy who can chip in some minutes on the fourth and produce more than Westy. Not bad Deano.
