I'm fine with a 4th.. hopefully the ball keeps rolling. Kuba, Goc and Kopecky still off the ice? I think all could get traded, depending on the return. Kopecky could fetch something nice, he is exactly the type of player a team wants in the playoffs. Has two(?) Cup rings, add some scoring and some grit.

Don't care to dig up the stats now, but a 4th round pick has a pretty small chance of ever making the NHL.

It's good value for Smithson, but the pick has nothing awesome in it.

Tallon drafted trocheck in the 3rd round and he looks pretty darn good, don't know how well that will translate to the nhl but the potential is there. I'll take the 4th over Smithson, we have a lot of bodies we can slot into those bottom roles and get greater than or equal to performance imo

3rd rounder 12% chance of making it IIRC

One of the guys on the Sportsnet broadcast said this could be one of the last times they do the deadline show because all the GMs realize they should just make the deals prior to this day. I think he's right (which was something that Brian Burke was credited for saying first) that GMs will not be waiting anymore to make trades so this day will become nothing in a few yrs. Thats why we're seeing it so dead now because a lot of teams already made the trades (see Iginla, Jagr, etc)

I believe a 4th rounder is even less than 10% too. But not every draft pick is made just for the expectation of making the NHL. You need organizational depth so that you can fill out farm team rosters, etc. So guys are drafted for potential to be NHL players but often for just filling holes in the depth chart.

Twitter is blowing up over this with laughter. Bishop, at age 26 does have potential to become a good goaltender which is what Tampa Bay has lacked for a long time, but you don't trade a guy like Conacher! I have no idea what Yzerman was thinking

I think the funnier thing is that he traded a bunch of picks for Lindback not so long ago.

So far, Tallon is getting kudos from me for NOT doing anything significant. Would love it to end as such, and Bjustadt penned.

What's even more funnier is that Darren Pang (Blues broadcaster/insider) said on TSN that Yzerman and Blues GM had a serious discussion about Bishop last year before he got traded to Ottawa, but SY didn't want to pay a 2nd because Bishop was unproven.

Yeah, but admit it ... IF Tallon made a move, you'd be loving that too.

Gaborik to CBJ? Now that came from nowhere.

And he has accepted too.

I don't think anyone will meet that price, so I doubt he gets traded today.
