IMO if we had had Leddy this year we would have been noticeably more solid at the backline. 2cents
The one area we will probably not agree on is how Leddy develops in the Wild organization in comparison to how he did with Chicago. He was playing with Duncan Keith last year. We didn't have Ryan Suter. The way everyone has chastised Gilbert this offseason, is that who you really wanted being his mentor?

Same could be said for Scandella without Burns and before Suter...

If Leddy is at all smart, he'll be fine. I dunno how high is hockey IQ is.

Also, let's not forget that Seabrook got benched for a game early in the playoffs and scored the winner last game. Toews got put on the fourth line and was great the next game.

From what I've heard, he isn' the brightest bulb in the factory. But I don't know the kid personally only what folks have said.

He actually scored 2 game winners this playoffs.

Yeah Chi is stacked but he is on the PP, if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure he has some wealth as a PP guy. Frankly with him on our second pair with a big strong defensive defenseman, or even on the first with Suter and Brodin on the second with Spurge or someone else might have actually worked nicely. But that would have been a very young set of our top-4 d-men.

We'll never know. I wish the kid the best though.

Where will the Flames play next season?

This ****ing brutal in CGY right now. Not sure if US media are covering that huge news. At least no death so far.

It's just crazy. I wonder if they will get it fixed in time. There's enough time I think but who knows how much damage there will be?

Glad everyone is okay. That is something you never want to see.

When did Nashville have their flood?

All the flood pictures bring back memories of 1997.

I wouldn't wish that on anybody. The smell after something like that is just unreal.

I also heard on CBC before the game that they are evacuating Medicine Hat as well.

I've said it in other threads, but since the Wild were eliminated I've had absolutely no desire to watch any more hockey. I have watched maybe half a period of the playoffs total since we were booted by Chicago.

Yup. The apartments I lived in were flooded all the way up through the 2nd floor. Though it was basically in a fish bowl, it is stil crazy to absorb. The 2nd floor was about 20 feet above the ground.

Terrible. I wish Calgary all the best.

No one can say how Leddy's development path would have turned out with the Wild, we can only assume he would have probably played one more year with the Gophers followed by playing in the AHL a year or two. As many have said we didn't have Keith nor a solid team that could ease him in, I think he would have been in the AHL more unless he showed he was above it.

In any case its pointless to speculate on it now.

Bernier to Toronto for Scrivens Frattin and a 2014 or 2015 2nd round pick.

I'm glad the Wild didn't pay that steep price.

Agreed. As happy as I would be about getting Bernier, I am happier now that we didn't lose a Zucker or Kuemper or somebody.
