I didn't know Vydareny...

He will play for Hamilton I suppose. Any chances of seeing him in the NHL someday ?

very slim chance, but still this is better than Blouin...
He's 22 years old, left-handed defenceman, 6 foot 1, 198 lbs, drafted in 3rd round by Vancouver in 99.
Has plenty of offensive upside. Skates very well and moves the puck quickly. Needs to start turning potential into points in order to get noticed. Must continue to work on his defensive game.

CAREER POTENTIAL: No. 6 or 7 defenseman

Well, if he can help Hamilton, that's great...I think the Nucks are thinking that they'll play against Colorado in playoffs...Blouin could be useful for them.

By the way, I hope so much Worrell kicks Bertuzzi's ass.

I think this deal will benefit the Bulldogs very well. Simple enough, Dykhuis, Traverse, Cote, Plante are not PP type guys.

I didn't even know we had Blouin. Didn't we trade him at some point before?

From our friends of Vancouver:

"Can skate really well, and as was said before has some offensive potential..
But just couldn't put it together. He keeps getting older and with young guys Koltsov and Mojzis there wasn't any space for him. He's fallen so far down on the depth chart that he couldn't even make it full time on the farm team.. "

"Good skating defenseman, yes, but "good offensive potential"? I don't think so. Vydareny has never put up good offensive numbers in this his 4th season. Vydareny's main asset is his speed, he's real fast, but all other assets of his game are average at best. I don't see him ever becoming much at the NHL level, skating can only get you so far."

Though minor I like this deal we get rid of Blouin who has no purpose in the organization and in return get a decent young player.

Great trade. Blouin is nothing more than a warm body with no brain or talent on skates. To get a decent young D for the farm for Blouin and his 700 K 1 way contract is a great move by BG

Good safe "small" move. We got rid of someone who wasn't going anywhere with us anyway, was a UFA in the offseason, wasn't going to be re-signed, and we get someone who is still 22 and has some good assets. Even if it is depth in Hamilton and he never works out in the NHL...nothing lost, and yet more to gain if he is a late bloomer under a good coach like Jarvis.

why not try the guy at a forward position?

If he's so fast, and has decent size, maybe he'd make a good winger.

Man, this is great! I couldn't stand to see Blouin in a Dogs uniform for one more game. He has probably set the record for most hits from behind in one year, and is one of the only - players on the team. The fact that Gainey got a warm body in return for him is amazing, well done BG.

It's a fact Dmen take longer to mature. Maybe with the right coaching(Jarvis) he can amount to something. To write a Dman off at 22 is presumptuous.
