Why in the world would a team give up 2 top 50 picks for Andrew Shaw?

 

He will have some fun in those B's/Habs games

 

Your 2nd line answers your question. Montreal still seems to overly concern itself with grit and toughness.

Shaw to Montreal for two 2nd rounders and two thumbs up from me.

 

This makes me sad. Better than getting nothing in return...but really gonna miss Shaw's scrappy play.

I'll still take it. Replenish that farm system.

Exactly. Craig Button said it's a pointless trade by MTL because they need skill, and Shaw's play is too much like every other Hab.

Pavel Datsyuk traded to Arizona. Let's leave it at that and ignore the other facts.

The other fact here is that Detroit just unloaded a huge contract and pushed their cap space to $19m, and they are going to make a serious run at Steven Stamkos.

I'm out and just wanted to check in on the draft. Can someone explain why PHX did that?

 

To get to the cap floor

And to get Jakob Chychrun, who last year was in the top 3 of most NHL mocks.

I believe Arizona is also paying Pronger's deal. Go 3/3 and acquire Lecavalier's rights too!

I think we found a spot for Hossa once his back too banged up to keep playing

geezus...they are! God that just shows you how effed the NHL salary structure is. They don't pay him jack squat but still counts against the cap and keeps them in the "minimum salary" range...which is ridiculous. Meanwhile teams like the Hawks that did it right continue to get effed by having to shuffle talent off their roster....

DeBrincat falling into the Hawks lap is outstanding.

Is he the one that had 101 goals over the last 2 years, including one year when he played on McDavid's line?

Great for Shawzie. Almost making as much as his buddy Bicks. He's got his 2 cup rings, might as well get yourself set for life. Not bad for a 5th round pick passed over twice.
