It's a lot of future to give up for a team on the wrong side of .500, but I know that they needed a veteran presence on the blueline. I guess Knights fans haven't been happy with him but Barr has done some amazing things with former Knights defensemen that were thought poorly of.

Martines problem in London was simple.

He didn't play physical, took bad calls, and gave it up too much.

He also was outplayed by a younger Matt Ashman making him trade bait.

Giving up Foreman to get him had them thinking he would be top four, it became very clear early on his talent was not as good as the top four or even close.

Valdimir Roth and Montgomery can blow his doors off, Clarke plays with more grit, Aarssen is just better all around so having an expensive aqausition sitting in the 6 or 7 slot makes no sense.

Plus London have stocked quite a few picks now for 08,09,10 making a larger trade for a forward easier to do. London are looking for a pair of forwards I heard with four younger players probably getting moved.

Rumour has it that Sudbury is very interested in Thomas McCollum. Mike Foligno has been to the last two Storm games (of course counting todays againts the Wolves) and they need a goaltender.

Guelph needs a goalscorer and they were looking at overager Kevin Baker. I think he'd be a nice fit in Guelph.
