Perhaps the most surprising thing about the trade is that Dallas was even willing to deal with us...

I doubt that. But if the prospects are worse than the ones the Flames got for Iginla i'd make that trade for Jagr. Jagr would be a massive help in fixing the powerplay.

Imagine Jagr with the Sedins... *drool*

(edit... apparently Boston got him for a 2nd and two prospects...)

It's OK but not a solution. The deal for Kassian last year and the excitement over Booth clearly indicates that what Van needs is not Mason Raymond style small quick forwards but rather bigger stronger power forwards who can produce.

Derek Roy is not that.

I tend to agree. It's not like the situation with the Flyers (where a guy like Snyder likes to "really get involved" in the hockey operations).

Key difference is that Regehr is a #6 at this point in his career.

can't believe people are excited about this. and praising GMMG .. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Let's see how he plays on the ice and hope we don't have another Booth on the roster.

At least, he's only a rental.

Anyway, it's done, nothing for it now but to see how he does here, how the team does with him in the lineup, how much he wants to re-sign, etc.

Obaldi oblada!

Isn't trading 2nd round picks for rentals one of the reasons we don't like Nonis?

There's nothing wrong with "another Booth".

Great deal for Vancouver. Put Kesler on the wing with Roy or vice versa. If not we have a solid third line in either or them.

Great point, and don't think enough people are realizing this. By solving the "we need a player NOW" portion of the Luongo trade with this deal, Gillis expands his range of acceptable returns to include non-player assets, like picks and prospects. Likely means Luongo stays until the draft I would think, but I can't help but think this trade helps in the long run ...

this is really bad thinking. you should be judging things based on the thought process that went into them, not on whether or not roy scores some goals in a 12 game sample size

Since Connauton was never going to make the NHL with the Canucks, I see this as 2nd for Roy + contract space. Pretty good deal, even for a rental.

We should be judging them based on outcome.

Which is what we'll all have to wait on now.

Booth was looking very good before he got hurt when he first got here

Will be interesting to see how long until Gillis tries to extend him, and for how much.
Why don't you watch the guy play before making all sorts of silly sounding speculations? It's abundantly clear you haven't watched any of Roy this year but you're happy to throw around all sorts of paranoid reasons for why he was acquired.

Look at the rentals Nonis got and then look at the "rentals" Gillis got. Gillis also has a habit of re-signing all his "rentals" so there's really no reason to think he isn't planning the same here.

I like the deal, but this seems a bit pricy.

I think Connauton has more value than you guys are giving credit, but the prospects behind him (Corrado specifically) and the NHL blue line in front of him ultimately made him redundant. He had nowhere to go but down or left.
