After trading for ROnald Mcdonald Mezz better go, even if you have to give him away.
****** thing about waiting if we are to make a trade is that we will be short handed tonight in a HUGE game.
None of that makes sense to me.
Yes, Mez will be gone, either before the deadline or in July.
Every team that makes a trade today is basically in that position, minus the occasional private-jet situation. But the decline in prices on Deadline Day vs. two or three days earlier is more useful than one extra game with a player.
#BlueJackets Marian Gaborik was on his way to the #LAKings before the Kings pulled out last minute with word that the price for #Islanders Vanek & #Sabres Moulson is coming down. The Kings are still negotiating the price for Gaborik and it's believed a deal will get done but there is still a lot of offence on the market including another secondary option in #Flames Cammalleri.
the Macdonald trade definitely will be even more questioned if Holmgren doesnt deal Meszaros. no need to have NINE defenseman on the roster with none of them waiver eligible.
I am not questioning the move at all. We over value draft picks too much here. We still have our 1st and 2nd from this year and there is always other deals that can be made in the future to recoup some picks moved. MacDonald is not the #1 we need, but he is capable of moving the puck and plays in all situations. It's a good move, not brilliant but not bad.
