confirm. MoJo's work ethic has been disgusting since he entered the league. We move cap and add a player who has looked like a new man this season. A move back to the Southeast division should do him good as well.
Can you imagine if teams put out press releases like this? It would add some personality to the league.
I'm not delusional and think Kulemin is worth a #1 centre. I assumed people would realize I meant as part of a package but I guess not.
Edit: Also would easily move one of Gardiner/Rielly for a legit number one centre. Phanuef being traded just isn't realistic, and stupid Lupul just signed an extension so for sake of realism I probably won't deal him either unless the offer really helps my team. Gunnarson/Liles/Kadri are definitely available though.
To Jack Johnson
To Kyle Okposo, Nino Neidereiter, Matt Donovan, NYI 2014 2nd
Jackets are very happy with the package we received for Johnson, adding pieces that fit our needs very well.
Kyle Okposo and Nino Niederreiter are two physical forwards who can score, something we lacked this season.
And in Matt Donovan we think we acquired a young defenseman who has top-4 potential as a PMD, who can also contribute on our power play. Since becoming a full-time member of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2011-12, Donovan has recorded 15-49-64 in 113 games.
Neiderreiter was unhappy with the Isles and we think he's ready for the NHL, and he'll get that shot immediately with us. He has big-time scoring potential and he brings both skill and size to our forward lines.
Donovan is a solid defensive prospect with tremendous scoring upside. Since becoming a full-time member of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2011-12, Donovan has recorded 15-49-64 in 113 games.
