IN 2014 Kesler + 2015 3rd was dealt to anaheim for a 1st (McCann), Sbisa (went to Vegas), Bonino, 2014 3rd (later dealt for workhorse Dorsett - who sadly succumbed to injuries at 30 https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/let ... eel-sorry/ , pick ended up being Keegan Iverson, who disappeared from hockey after).

Then in 2016, JB dealt:
McCann + 2016 2nd round pick (Rasmus Asplund - he went SHL minor leagues, Allsvenskan)
2016 4th round pick (Jonathan Ang - was put on unconditional waivers, he went to europe)
for
Gudbranson + 5th (pick ended being Casey Staum with the Habs, who let him go after, he disappeared from hockey).
Guds ended up being dealt for Pearson.

So Kesler after 7yrs ended up being Pearson + Sutter? idk lol

--

If David Savard could be dealt for a 1st + 3rd, I think this TDD Edler could have returned a 1st in a not so deep 2021 draft.
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."

WOW the Leaves gave up a lot for an over-the-hill Foligno, what the fuck!
They are all in. They have no choice, Dubas knows his window with this group is about 2 more years after this one. The season they've had, you have to do it. Foligno checks a ton of boxes for Tarrana though, he's hard to play against, he forechecks hard, he hits, he brings sandpaper and tenacity that the Leaves have been missing. This is a good pickup for them.

Yeah I get that, but a 1st + 4th + 4th is a massive overpay for Old Man Foligno, he's not the man he used to be.

Leaves must have by far the oldest bottom 6 in the league.

And it's not like any of these fossils they've brought in have ever won a Cup or anything.

Well twice in recent memory. One in the Kesler deal and once in trade Schneider to get the Horvat pick.
The only HW the Canucks need

Jimmy said there will be no deadline deals because "it wouldn't be fair to the players" the other day.

Looks like Dipietro won't see game action for a couple of years...

It's foolhardy is what it is. This is nothing like the Canucks getting Miller. Wont be long till they're all running to get out of there.

Now the Leaves pick up No Save Dave (for a 3rd) Dumbass is on a shopping spree!

This means Mr Andersen won't be coming off LTIR before the playoffs.

And that means they've got more money for the thing they really need: a defenseman.

Some folks feel the reason Dumbass is making these dumbass trades is because he can't take his mind off WrestleMania.

This is true. I won't be surprised to see Foligno slide into their top-6 though to add some chutzpah to an otherwise soft group of princesses who have gotten everywhere this year in the North Division because of skill.

Obviously the additional picks are for the salary that is being retained by both Columbus and Detroit.

HA! Look at what Boston paid for Hall vs what Leaves paid for Foligno!

Buffalo retained 50% on Hall.

There's a reason they call him Dumbass...

I think Dumbass and Leafers in general have sucked themselves in.

I hear them saying the North Division is the best and therefore they are world-beaters.

I think the North sucks and the team coming out of it would get crushed by any of the top 3 in any other division.
