This doesn't really follow. To me this deal shows how immense Seguin's potential (and as a result, his trade value) is.. the Bruins moved him, dumped a $3m+ contract on the Stars in Peverly and got a very good first liner and an excellent prospect in return.

I take Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton 11 times out of 10 over Phill Kessel. Not to mention Kessel is a UFA while the other two are cost controlled for the next several years.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

I guess that's why they were trying to get him to take a haircut on his next year.

No knocking a guy who wants to cash in on his last contract, but having Alfredsson with the likes of Ryan would definitely be worth it for him to stick around to see how far they can go.

Ottawa will be an interesting team to watch next season.

Yeah affordable young up and coming quality players to play with the still youthful Getzlaf and Perry while averaging down their overall cost.

And they're in our division now right.

sigh indeed.

Silvferberg definitely has potential but he's largely unproven. He has flashes but disappears. He's not a lightweight like soon-to-be-flame but he doesn't have Ryan's size. I don't know if Noesen is going to help them next season, and a 1st is a 1st.

Decent move by both the Ducks and the Sens, but you knew that kind of trade was not going to happen between the Ducks and the Canucks - for the same reason Schneider was never going to go to Edmonton for the price Jersey paid (if Gillis would have traded him there at all).

Put it this way - would you rather see Ryan coming down the wing with the puck at Luongo or Silfverberg? I would choose the latter as a Canuck fan.

WPG sends 2nd round pick in 2014 to MIN for Devin Setoguchi.


A pretty good deal for the Jets.
