Goose wrote:Late last week the Ning traded one of their best young forwards to Montreal for an 18 year old defenseman. We traded Jonathan Drouin for a guy named Mikhail Sergachev. So, we gave away a guy who had 21 goals/32 assists/53 points last season for a teenager from the minors. We also got their 2nd round pick and gave them our 6th round pick.

Why would we do that?

Sure, Drouin asked for a trade, but that was two seasons ago. He seemed happy once he came up to the big team and played great. Granted, the guy we got is younger and cheaper, but Drouin is only 22 and was cheap enough. We needed help on defense, but we gave away an established forward for a minor league defenseman, so that doesn't make a lot of sense.

As usual, follow the money. Since Las Vegas paid a $500MM franchise fee the team owners agreed to an expansion draft. Each team was allowed to protect 7 forwards, 3 defenseman and a goalie and LV gets to pick one player from each team. So by trading Drouin we got to keep 7 forwards, instead of trying to keep 8 and losing one to LV. And since we traded for a defenseman with no NHL playing time the kid they got doesn't count against the 3 defenseman, so they essentially get to protect an extra guy.

Image

Curiously they kept a 32 year old defenseman and left off rookie Jake Dotchin, but maybe they figure, like 99% of the country, the Knights haven't heard of him either and we'll get to keep him anyway. But the way the expansion draft works the Ning could throw a draft pick to the Knights as an offer to leave our guys alone. So, we'll see how that plays out.

I'm sure everybody's excited to keep up on the cold stove over the summer and are looking forward to next year already.

The bluejackets used to give the guy free tickets and fly him in from Denver to do that dance. He was an airline mechanic for continental. A few times he was right above my section. He has lost a lot of weight and they were chronicling his efforts in the columbus paper.

The Blue Jackets are rumored to be doing that too. We are giving them a pick so they won't take Josh Anderson. We are throwing in Dave Clarkson too.

Seems like a lot to give up, in my opinion.

Yoooooooooooooooooour Tampa Bay Lightning are off to a 5-1-1 start after losing a shootout to the New Jersey Devils last night and lead the league with 11 points.

It's early, but I'm not used to these good starts, so I wanted to share.

Usually they fuck around for 2/3 of the season until Stamkos gets hurt, then make a late push.

One reason they're off to such a hot start, Nikita Kucherov (not pictured) has 8 goals in 7 games. He's on pace to break the single season record (92 by Gretzky).

I'm sure everyone is excited about hockey season now that baseball is over and the NBA hasn't started yet.

Please don't make me post any of Crosby's three Stanley Cups.

I understand you will have to have the last word here, of course, so go ahead. :)

+/- is as useful as wins in baseball, but yeah, prove an individual is better because he has better teammates, #science
