And the Oilers miss out on another dman.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I can see Cam Fowler being moved. The Ducks will keep Hampus and Sami and they are stuck with Bieksa. Despres or Fowler are gone for sure. Montour and Theodore are young up and comers.

They are stuck with Bieksa. We are not which is an example of good management I think. A lot of times these choices are a crap shoot. You get a player and he does are does not work out. No one can be right any more than 70-80% if that. That would be a the top end of seeing the future from a management POV. The other end of looking into the future is summed up by Luc Bourdon. Who knew eh?

Right now I am optimistic Elmer will help us build our talent pool. He can be considered in the 70-80% in talent spotting. What we do with this talent is another thing all on its own. Maybe a new coach. Maybe a new GM a year or two away and they will take what we all want. A cup. Or..........we will all get on our motorcycles and go for a ride just like Luc.....who knows eh?

Whatever the result, as long as we win a cup I do not care how we get there. GO CANUCKS. :D :bounce: :wave: :wave: :drunk: :bang: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :stupid:

Pretty good return for the Ducks, considering everyone knew they had to trade a goalie before the expansion draft.

Care to share or are you going to make me google it? Maybe they trade Bernier to Calgary. They can then go out and sign Reimer and reunite to duo :eh:

Never mind, I looked it up. Damn good return, a 1st this year, 30th and a 2nd next year.

Sorry HW, forgot it wasn't mentioned earlier.

Pretty much just Calgary looking for a goalie now? Maybe Dallas but they've already got $10M tied up in that nightmare...
