Do you really think we waited, or everyone was holding g for Kesler/Vanek. And time ran out on everyone?

I think it's pretty clear

Unless you're talking about situations where Darcy dealt/didn't deal pending UFAs, nothing else is relevant. And if people criticized Darcy for not taking whatever poor return was offered, that's also different. Don't really see an effective call out here.

I don't know the picks involved but I do not really like this trade.

Mitchell doesn't really add anything. If it was just Moulson then OK, but McCormick was one of the few guys on the roster who played his role perfectly.

I never said that I know what they were offering but it's been reported basically everywhere that Murray want Toffoli, he set his sights on him and it probably came back to bite him in the ass.

Unless Toffoli's name was leaked to get them to give up another prospect they were targeting like Fasching? I don't know what happened and neither do you.

Why are you guys saying 3rd+4th+Mitchell?

Eklund broke it first, he's saying 2nd+3rd+Mitchell

Vanek got a "2nd round pick and a prospect" so far as we know right now. Just so y'all know.

Maybe we didn't want him? You don't pay a guy millions of dollars just not to lose him.


There is so much weird on this board today...

You miss my point. You can't say it was a rookie mistake if the deal he ended up accepting was the best available. And you don't know if it was the best available if you don't know what other teams were offering.

I love how people just assume he'd resign, or that Murray even wanted him as a part of the team.

I think it's pretty obvious Murray didn't want him.. does that mean it was the right move?

What Vanek was traded for is irrelevant. Moulson said he wanted to stay and re-sign. If he says that then you attempt to re-sign him. Murray was not forced to trade Moulson. So when we trade 2 2nds it doesn't matter because the 2nds aren't worth much but now a 2nd and 3rd is a good return.

Versus letting him walk? Yes, it does.

You keep calling out all the absurd posts right before I do. I guess that saves me the effort.

Who says we could have? Who says we won't? This is how trade deadlines work for teams out of the playoff race.

I just read a few posts where people where like Torrey Mitchell, awesome pickup....am I not think of the right player? Mitchell, 29 year old, 4th line center/winger. Solid worker, character guy, a grinder type but limited offensive abilities. Do I have the right guy?

Doesn't seem like there was much of a winger market today.

It's like some posters are not capable of seeing what happened around the league today, and coming to a conclusion that is painfully obvious.

As if you don't get a huge package for Moulson the answer isn't just "sign him". Maybe you have no interest in paying him $6 million a year for the next 7 years.

A first, two 2nds and a 3rd?
