In Topic: Dougie Hamilton traded to Calgary

30 June 2015 - 12:06 AM

And they didn't have to give up any real player assets.  Calgary is in really good shape for the next few years.  I do think their defense needs some developing or attention, but I never would have guessed Calgary would make this kind of a turnaround.  Maybe Calgary is looking to make another trade with Boston to aquire Jones or Subban.  

This strikes me as Sweeney trying to get too cute, swinging for the fences and getting totally burned in the end. Man, if I was a Bruins' fan, I'd be so pissed right now. I'm still kind of bummed myself that the Devils didn't grab Hamilton at the 2011 draft. In fact, had they not won the draft lottery, they might very well have ended up with Hamilton. So, to summarize, Boston a) doesn't do their due diligence informing all teams of Hamilton's availability, b) reportedly turns down better offers and/or higher first-round draft picks, c) apparently makes deal without guarantee from Arizona that the Bruins' package for 3rd overall pick is adequate, d) let's a franchise defensemen walk because of his reported $5.5 million-a-year "demand," e) completely bums out its fan base and f) picks a couple of couple of questionable prospects in the 13-15 slots, passing on Barzal, Conner, etc., while reaching for other prospects in the process. And now Calgary is loaded and ready to really make some huge Cup speculation noise in the West. Well played Sweeney, well played.

Hanifin will still be on the board and we'll draft Crouse. Then when eveyone goes WTF, Conte will say everyne wanted a forward so that's what he drafted.

 This is exactly my fear...

Bryce Salvador. 

 

Just to guarantee they don't re-sign him as a player. 

I just shot coffee out of my nose. Well done sir, well done.

I so hope Boucher is the next Devils coach - mostly because of this:

The two worst-run franchises over the last eight years land McDavid and Babcock. How's that for karma. Wait, what?
