Different scenario though...Iginla basically got to pick his destination and the Flames accomodated him. I mocked the return on first blush but I sort of understand more now how tied Feaster's hands were.
Personally, I would have done two 2nds for Regehr, especially since we still have one in the bank. Whether or not Regehr would have waived to come here (or if the Sabres would even want to trade him here) is another subject, though...
I'd rather inquire about what the Canes want for McBain.
Read somewhere they were interested in moving him.
Our 4th line is a great line, even if alot of people on this board don't admit it. I'm starting to hope that we resign Armstrong this offseason. He's been great and plays his role perfectly. He kills penalties, never takes any stupid penalties and can bring a little bit of offence.
I wouldn't mind going a bit younger with our 4th liner because all three of the guys who are playing tonight are very old, and I like the Kings model where the 4th line is both good at hockey and energetic, but we probably have one of the stronger 4th lines in the league despite what people here say.
And I agree, Armstrong is pretty underrated. He's playing some very smart hockey this year and is doing a lot of little things right. More than him I'd like Halpern back though, Halpern is still one of the best 4th line Cs in the league.
