Gelinas to Colorado for a 3rd

Recommended Posts

Better than nothing I guess. Was hoping he could be packaged for a forward, but I'll take it.

Great return. Glad word hasn't gotten out around the league yet regarding how awful he is yet so that somebody is willing to give us a 3rd for this lost cause.

There's a (very) small part of me that would've liked to have seen Gelinas get one last shot with the Devils next season...but I'm fine with this deal.  I'm guessing almost everyone not named Mike Brown is.

Thanks for that ot win against the Rangers in 2013, about the only really good thing he's ever done here. 

He's not even worth a 3rd round pick so this is a great deal

One-dimensional player that we did not need /could not afford to carry.

 

Next year Helgeson can wear # 44 !!

Gelinas on TSN right now.  Will report if he says anything interesting.

Comments:

  1. He was 50/50 on being traded, wasn't certain it was happening until we claimed that defenseman from Pittsburgh
  2. Frustrated being healthy scratched, never requested trade though.  Was intent on earning a spot.
  3. Looking forward to playing with star forwards, no dig at NJ though despite what the hosts were trying to imply.

Uneventful overall, pretty standard hockey interview.  No sour grapes or dirty laundry aired.

Remember when people were comparing him to PK Subban.  Oh memories.

Didn't Larry Robinson say he had a chance to be a Chris Pronger type?

tbf coaches will always talk up their players; plus a .00001% chance is still a chance i guess.

 

Anyway I'm sure 2 years from now after hes been waived he'll have a 2 goal game and Mike Brown will pop in to tell us how big a mistake this was. Happy with the 3rd, good luck to him.

Someone needs to hide the rope and sharp objects around Mike Brown, we just traded one of the best defenseman in the history of the franchise for a 3rd

Good return.  He should fit in nicely on Colorado.  The system they play is perfect for Eric.

And it's a fair return.  Just because he makes some defensive mistakes doesn't mean he sucks.  Nobody has any evidence he's a bad player.
