I'm just speechless. I just don't feel anything anymore because I'm used to it by now I guess. I feel like an emo kid.
I dare, DARE any Homer defenders to defend this **** or even this off-season in general. Come on, please, just try it.
This might be the single worst trade I've ever seen. I mean that in all seriousness. Single worst trade I've ever seen. We traded a two-way, 30-goal, 70-point winger, life-time Flyer for an over-payed, old 7th d-man and a 4th.
Not only that, but we already had seven d-men before this trade so now we have 8 d-men. What in the ****ing hell. That basically makes this trade Gagne for a 4th. A ****ing 4th round pick.
Could be that Gagne refused to waive for any other team or at least, only a couple of teams, thus limiting Holmgren's options. He was probably intrigued by playing with so many French players and for a French coach, the bonus of which it would be outside of Montreal.
Since we never really develop our own and can't because of lack of picks I would say you can never have enough D prospects ..same with goalies considering how long they need to develop. NJ understands this....
