Love this analysis. Makes you realize the futility of grouping unrelated trades.

Today @ 2:05 PM ET
So basically a 1st round pick, 2 seconds and Ferland and Fox for Lindholm and Hanifin??? That sucks guys. That's a doozie, not Chiarelli bad but ball park.
I thought they actually did really well with this trade... but if you look at the overall big picture, you're right. It really does suck.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Hamilton is one of those enigmas. Puts up decent numbers but teammates, coaches and management aren’t crazy about him

Gotta say, like this one for Calgary

Apparently Hamilton is an A-hole for a teammate. Fox a decent prospect, Ferland whatever. To get Lindholm and Hanafin for that? Not bad
It is a good return, both will need contracts. $4M bridge for each?
Yeah the canes didn't see eye to eye with Lindholm's agent's numbers so out he goes and Hanifin should get a hefty contract as well.

But that's the good time to strike if you have a rich owner and cap space to trade for RFA's.

Now that the shock has worn off Cow Puke is coming around to the trade.

Treliving basically confirmed that there were both on ice and off ice issues surrounding Hamilton but would not, for obvious reasons, elaborate. He also indicated that Hamilton demanded a trade at the end of the season and they have been looking at Hanafin since then.

Tre,icing also confirmed that Fox, via his representative, told the Flames he would not sign in Calgary. So they have been looking at using him in a package since last summer. Ferland was the guy he said was hard to part with.

Carolina on the other hand say Hamilton is now part of their core and his “issues” notwithstanding they have no plans to trade him.

First his Boston teammates all but pack his bags and now due to issues with his teammates in Calgary he demands a trade. Sure sounds like poison. Liking this trade more and more for Calgary. He moves a p,Ayer who demanded a trade, a prospect who says he won’t sign there and a heart and soul 3rd liner for two core players. I’m not a Treliving fan, but this is a good trade all things considered.

Given these issues you can’t tell me Carolina could not have done better.

I think it’s a decent trade for both teams. I’m happy to see Ferland go. He absolutely abused Vancouver’s defence the last few years.

:lol: no doubt, he's exactly the type this team needs though, especially on Horvats/Boeser line, similar to big dog meat and potatos worker Tom Wilson on Ovie's and Backstrom line.

I started talking about Hamilton's issues 3 years ago:

Notice some doubted the Great Strangelove. :crazy:

Sad to say it but this was a great trade for the Flames...

Thanks doc. Fat fingers and small keyboards. Add to that spell check that takes the errors and adds them to your list. Now it changes things on its own and I don't catch it.

By the way, I get kidney stones too. First one I was like hey man I'm through the pause, what's all this pain and blood about. But at the hospital they hit me up right away and everything was all right. No waiting for pain meds, even gave me a script for some heavy duty shit. Ya like St. Paul's just drops that shit in the inner city like there's no tomorrow. But I didn't fill the script. Once you piss em out the pain is manageable.

Sounds like Chaput(RFA) and Wiercioch(UFA) won't be offered a contract and will both walk come July 1
