Perhaps I could have gotten more, but I'm really high on Edler and he'll put up between 40-50pts playing on the PP with Schneider or Ehrhoff. I needed the space. I also think Doughty will explode this year with about 40pts. Hopefully I am right.
That said, I am looking to move into the top 3 of the prospects draft. ANYONE is up for grabs. Please contact me if you want to trade down.
I don t believe it s a bad deal at all. Think about it, Bergeron= 70+ pts,Seto= 75+ playing along side Thorton and Heatley. And I get Malkin=100+ + Mason = 45pts by playing on the 3rd line.
So it s 145 for 145. The worst thing I didn t even try to cheat. That s what I really believe.
So this deal is more then equal but then this not the way to get a super star. You sepose to overpay but this deal so equal in pts. I really believe that Bergeron and Seto will outscore there best mark. Seto is a great star.
So, Anaheim, you traded all of your draft picks away to move up to get Malkin and Staal. Then you traded both of them away for 3rd and 4th round quality players. I just have to wonder what your game plan was going into this draft bud.
This is not cool guys, Anaheim is very big on Seto and Bergeron is pretty good.
But the only thing I believe he made a mistake was not to take Chara. Chara would of really help him with is need. He need more a top notch D then a Winger and a Center. If I was him, I would of have rather have Chara and Bergeron or even Frolik and Chara then Seto and Bergeron for Malkin.
