Although his offensive game is considered raw at this point he offers an interesting package of size, skating, competitiveness and feistiness. He presents a challenge to the opposition with his determined, high-energy style and was compared to Anaheim Ducks Corey Perry by the Bryan Murray.
Shocked, and then a little disappointed Z wasn't coming back(although Soj makes a good point about our young centers). But, after reading more about Noesen(knew little about him before), I'm ok with it. If we use the space to get Grabovski, then I'll definitely be on board.
I like the trade
Big fan of silfverberg, has a great shot.... should be a good top 6 winger, noesen gives us some wing depth/options. And who noes what happens with the first pick.
Im glad ryan is out of anaheim, he was always over shadowed here, and never got a huge chance to play to his full potential, i think hell have the best season of his career this year, but that was never going to happen for him in anaheim.
Also frees some money for another potential signing/move... If they really want to make me happy theyll move souray.
I'm feeling better about this as well, as I think silver whatever has a much better motor in him than Ryan. More bullets with the pick as well. I'm somewhat satisfied now that I've thought it over. Glad it's done with.
