Beat you by 7 minutes.

Great deal. Great, great deal. 78 + 85 points the last two years!

Both of you got this pretty quickly. Good job to you both!
I had no f-n clue.
Scratch my Weight to Florida proposal.
And Strickland said there are no imminent trades.

Was there a known possiblity of trading Weight? I was in India the last three weeks and am out of the loop.....

I'm shocked to see Doug Weight traded.

Good deal for you guys.

JD continues to impress in the short but successful rebuilding of the Blues.

Damn. Sorry, I didn't see yours or I wouldn't have posted mine.

People are saying that McDonald's play has fallen off because he doesn't have Selanne next to him anymore. I'd like to see if Kariya can get him back on track. I've been saying we need a center upgrade for a while. Here it is. All we need to do is get Tkachuk back playing how he was earlier in the year and we're in business.

Great deal for you guys! This is one of the fastest rebuilds "on the fly" I have ever seen!

Absolute steal for you guys if true. I love the job that your front office has done the past couple seasons.

Andy Mac is a damn good player. The playoff stats from last season should tell you a lot. You win this one. I cannot believe it was a straight up deal like this. No draft picks? Crazy.

Wow nice pickup. Weight is a great guy, but for a team to snag a core part of the future...I would say its a boarderline steal.

Congratulations guys

I could see him clicking with Kariya Boyes or Perron. Hell, him and Oshie next season could work too. How the heck did this happen?


I'd also like to take this minute to give my appreciation to Doug Weight. I've been critical of him, but he did love wearing the Bluenote. When we traded the Oilers to get him we expected him to fix our problem at center. The strange thing is, in ways we might not have expected, he may have done just that (Berglund, Andy Mac)

I say reunite the top line and go with Perron Macdonald Backes for the 2nd line.

So...Perron McDonald Oshie next season. The combined speed, talent and motors of these guys would be tough to handle. The only downside is none are all that big, though Oshie plays as if he is. Plus that would leave Kariya Tkachuk and Boyes as a line and Stempniak McClement and Backes as a line.

Good deal for both teams. It allows Niedermayer to play and gives St Lou a solid 2nd centre for years to come. Weight replaces Macdonald in the short term for Anaheim.

Is anyone else drooling with anticipation after reading this?
