Kane and Beaulieu should make for quite the pair...

A good trade for you guys despite Beaulieus issues

hmm ... Jame's point is possible, maybe Beaulieu is a player that Botterill knows Vegas wants which allows us to keep Ullmark. Maybe Bergevin talked to McPhee about the price to stay away from Beaulieu and it was too high so he went out and got what he could for him.

I'm ok with exposing Bogosian now that we have another #4/5 dman in the fold. Very happy with the acquisition. Beaulieu is definitely better then a bottom pairing dman but more on the low end of a second pairing. Not quite Lydman for a 3rd caliber but still a great trade. This is so much better then the last time we got a dman from Montreal. (Trading a 2nd in a good draft for a broken Gorges compared to a 3rd in a terrible draft for a halfway decent dman who is only 24). Botterill off to a damn good start. Gets a good coach and makes a real good first trade.

The value is obviously really good. Lets see if he's still on the team after the expansion draft.

And yeah, Bogosian can **** off. Get him off the team, expose him.

Given our need at defense I highly doubt this is the case. Botterill is trying to get, at worst, an additional NHL level defenseman.

Protect Risto, McCabe, beau and leave Bogo exposed. I said Bogo should be protected over someone like Fedun or Gorges. Web don't have enough forwards or d to protect 8-1.

Anything that doesn't cost a ton and pushes Gorges down the depth chart is fine by me.

This doesn't fix the D. But, it makes it a little better.

The bolded seems more likely to me. I can't imagine this is the last trade that has everyone thinking 'is that it?'

I still think Vegas takes Ennis or Moulsob and this is all moot.

But IMO. This means Bogo is unprotected. I don't think Vegas takes him anyways.

Well any trade from now to Thursday will only involve Las Vegas.

Don't see Guhle anywhere. He should be in Buffalo at the start of the season, don't want him in Roch.

If this trade says anything is that Guhle will be in Rochester and will probably be first call up for injury since the left side seems full. Unless he beats out Falk because we know Geroges wont be seeing any time in Rochester.

Why? Have him start the season in Roch. If he's too good, sure, bring him up. But there's no point in rushing the kid.

Yeah its just like at the deadline tho, trades get announced past the deadline because they take time to process.

Probably because Central Registry had to process the trade call and such.

What I wanted if a big deal couldn't be struck was to get an NHL ready d with some upside to fill our third protection slot so we could expose Bogo's salary. Looks good to me

I like it. Good depth move, maybe more for a minor pick.

Get another.

That is a possibility. Buffalo says we acruise him and then you take him in the ED so all it costs is a 3rd.

We will see tomorrow with the protection list.

Pros:

has experience at this level
Skating
Good fit for Housley
Good value in trade

Cons
Bars open until 4

Worth the risk
