In Topic: Dougie Hamilton traded to Calgary

Today, 02:25 PM

He signed in Calgary for less than $6 million per, he deliberately overpriced himself with the Bruins to get off a sinking ship.

 

Sorry, but I disagree.  He is leaving a major market because he priced himself out and now he is getting considerably less based on the weaker Canadian Dollar and higher taxes.

 

Time will tell.  But now they have to pay Giordano.

He was asking for 5.5, not 7. It's an awful trade for the Bruins. And it's worse when you consider they traded Hamilton to Calgary just to spite Chiarelli, who was gonna offer sheet him. They never even let teams know Hamilton was available. If Shero did something like this, I'd be in his office with a noose.

 

You are incorrect sir.  Boston was asking for $5.5, Hamilton wanted $7.5 per year.

 

"Boston offered the 22-year-old defenseman a six-year, $33 million contract, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. Hamilton then countered with an offer that was around $2 million per year higher." 

 

AGAIN:  He is not worth $7.5 million a year.   Great move by the B's trading him while his value was overstated.

solid B. Zacha is going to be a franchise player down the road.

This was a great deal for Boston. Hamilton got to pad his stats playing with Chara. But paying him $7 million a season for one years experience is nuts. Had Boston done a better job drafting this was a steal for the Bruins.

I want Elias finishing his career here. Period. If he wants to leave at the deadline, that's on him and I wouldn't blame him. But Patty is my favorite Devil of all time (along with Stevens), and I have no desire to see him wear any other jersey but ours. If he asks for a trade, then fine. But I'm not moving him unless HE wants to go.


Agree 100% with everything (Elias and Stevens my all time favorites). I want Patty to retire a Devil and retire #26. Hopefully, he announced this will be his last season and becomes a scout in the Czech Republic
