how does a 15 goal third liner only get a low second? He coulda got much more if we kept him for a yr and traded him at the deadline next yr

Dumb deal. Chris Kelly is the kind of guy you keep around in a rebuild like ours. Great defense to insulate the youth. Great character guy. Frig man.. Bryan Murray better have great faith in this years draft!!....

Why, this makes no sense to me. One of the few guys who has played well for us, decent contract and team player. Who will replace him for that price.

I don't get this at all, a 2nd??!!

Can't say I'm happy about this one, but it's about right value wise. Kelly wasn't returning a first.

I don't see any point in trading one of the best 3rd line centre's in the league for a very low 2nd round pick. At best, we get a younger Chris Kelly, but that's at very best. I was really pleased with the Fisher trade, this one just sucks.

We may all be overvaluing Kelly, just cause he's been around for a while and rarely disappoints for a 3C, but a second? Come on BM.

There's gotta be another trade in the works. This trade just doesn't make any sense...

Kelly was a perfect player to keep around for the rebuild, a character guy that plays hard, is well liked in the derssing and keeps the guys loose...

I *** hate this deal...

Quoting isn't working but how the hell does that late 2nd make our draft any more interesting unless your a scout?

Really, everyone this pissed off? I dont like the trade, but like its pretty fair value. If I was GM, I'd have Kelly in my future plans. If they don't, it makes sense to do this. Oh btw, and I know you're reading this Fuhr... I ****ING TOLD YOU HE'D LAND A 2ND.

Tough to see battleship go, great player, great leader, had to happen as we're about to embark in a new direction. 2nd rounder works for me with players like Smith, Winch and O'Brien coming up. One must think Murray likes what he sees in this draft as he is only asking for draft picks.

Fans on this board wanted a tank anda complete rebuild, that's what they are going to get.

Kelly was a good soldier, worked hard game in and out. However he really was nothing special other than his penalty killing work.

For those people complaining about a second round pick, I hope none of you were in the group *****ing about Murray giving up a 2nd rounder for Cullen. Cullen is a better player than Kelly.
