As for the trade...

Was hurt, playing now. Actually dropped the gloves yesterday for the first time as a pro. Honestly, the guys around him aren't at his level and when he goes to feed them they often dont' know what to do with it, or aren't in the spot an NHLer would be, which has lead to him shooting more. He's playing alright, but for that reason, not producing.

Want to know how useless connections and sources are for this? A few of us were talking about Deschamps for a variety of reasons, and not a single person was like "hey, he may be on the outs"

Just like the lockout - so many NHL guys around the rink, so much opinion, yet the day the deal was reached, nobody in the media room knew anything that afternoon

I called this months ago. This was Deschamps' "shape up or ship out" year and he certainly didn't shape up:

Thank you and good luck to Nicolas Deschamps. Hard working, dedicated kid who will eventually get a shot at the big time.

An experienced D to cover the minutes once Gardiner is called up. Good move.

Nice trade for the Leafs.

Never hurts having a young defender like Marshall in the system.

Another trade that could pay off along the lines of the one for Mark Fraser.

He's strong, mobile and can make an outlet pass.

Should help the Marlies depth and if put in the right system (a Carlyle system?), he could be a depth NHL defender some day.

He'd be nice to pair with the likes of a Gardiner or Morgan Reilly when he's brought up.

I'm really like the moves Nonis is making to clean up for Burke's many mistakes that Burke was too stubborn to address (Connolly, Lombardi and Deschamps). Now he just needs to make a few more problems but good progress

Maybe its just me, but i really dont see the Deschamps "mistake" on the same level as the other two. If its even a mistake at all.

And considering Franson is having a quite a good year, im willing to live with the year of Lombardi on the team.

Gardiner isn't getting called up yet. He is working on his defensive/positional game with the Marlies.He is learning still don't forget.

How the hell was Burke's Deschamp trade a "mistake"? Luca Caputi was a nobody and still is a nobody.

Deschampes was great with Dupuis last year. Hasn't clicked like that with anyone else this year, from what I have seen.

And 16 points in 50 games would further promote your theory.

Indeed. Not surprised either with our other boys wanting more playtime and development. Only proves other rumblings are happening.
