I'm going to go with majority here and think this is a great trade. Now, off to do some youtube research on this fella.

I don't get this "RW we're looking for". He's a lowrisk/high reward acquisition.. nothing more, nothing less.

Great deal. Fehr is a guy I've always liked. Hard-working, and big!

I went to high school with Eric, he's a GREAT dude. Seriously, gonna be perfect for the dressing room.

Also, he led the league in 09-10 in points-per-minute. I'm predicting a 25/25 season for him if he plays 75 games.

Why can't this signing be viewed on it's own merit? And not compared to not resigning Stewart? Not to mention I do see Fehr as an upgrade, and not cause he's from Manitoba (that doesnt mean squat to me).

But, I do feel, and have always felt that Fehr can become a very reliable 2nd line RW. I've always been rather partial to a Fehr -- he's a big guy who can skate, and has a blistering snap shot.

If he can move past his injury issues -- there's a good chance he fufills his potential. I thnk that Stewart's numbers are the product of getting spoonfed icetime on a bad team. Fehr put up 21 goals getting about 12-13 minutes a game in 09-10.
I agree. He was an average player with about 0 intangibles on a team starved for offense.

If by assets you're referring to Paquette and the 4th...neither of these pieces would help in the endeavor of trying to acquire a legit top-6 RW. They're basically throwaway pieces -- Fehr was traded for so little because:

A) Washington needed to clear out salary, and Fehr wasn't needed anymore
B) He'd definitely a reclamation project -- but he's one that has put up decent numbers at the NHL level

I think, at this point in time, while Cheveldayoff evaluates the state of this team, that giving up so little and getting a player who is almost no risk, that could potentially end up contributing positively to the team on a regular basis, is a more productive move then risking important pieces for a player like Ales Hemsky.

We got a great deal because of the Caps cap issues, for what we gave up we're getting a good player. 2nd liner/3rd liner doesnt matter. we got good value and a good player.

I agree that hes a high reward but I think hes also a bit of a higher risk. He has missed a lot of games due to injury and from the sounds of it wont even be starting the season with us because of injury.

If hes healthy he could be a 2nd line RW.

As for the Stewart comparison I think we should look at both of their overall careers not just last season.

Fehr - GP230 G46 A47 PTS93
Stewart - GP185 G18 A33 PTS51

Stewart did have a breakout year last season but Fehr has been more consistent through his career.

You guys are right. What was I thinking? It makes perfect sense to trade assets to a divisional rival and take on more payroll when you can get the same effort and better durability from a cheaper player. It all makes perfect sense now. Thank you for showing me the light and correcting me from the errors of my ways.

It's not high risk. We're "risking" a 4th round pick and a scrub (little harsh maybe).

I'm not sure if you know what "high risk" actually means. There's no risk because they didn't give up anything of worth for him.

We won't hold that against him. We'll take him anyway.

Come on. Paquette and a 4th are near worthless pieces. If anything, trading Fehr within the division could end up biting Washington in the ass.

Regarding finances -- this team isn't going to be anywhere near the cap celing. Paying a little extra for what could turn out to be a more productive move means squat in the long run.

By the time Paquette and the 4th reach the NHL, Winnipeg won't be in the same division as the Caps and in all likelihood not even the same conference.

Worthless assets, and a divisional rival for one year. Same effort? Stewart sucks. End of ****ing story. There is a reason why he is a cheaper player. Way to take the only possible negatives to the deal (not even negatives as I mentioned in the beginning of the post) and twist them to persist fighting your useless argument.

Are you familiar with RW depth? Because that's something we don't exactly have a lot of you know.

P.S. Why is there so much stubborness in here???

P.S.S. If we had kept Stewart, we would actually have a little RW depth at least.

There is an EXTREMELY strong chance that neither becoming NHL players anyways.

Great trade for Chevy. Almost a steal. Fehr's health is a concern, but he'll hopefully be okay in due time.

This kind of helps offset what I think was Chevy's first blunder, not qualifying and keeping Anthony Stewart around. He's signed in Carolina now.
