    I hate to say it, but I like that deal for Ottawa.

    It's draft day!!!! I love NHL draft day. Think a lot is going to happen today/tonight.

    I like that move for both sides - I'm a fan of Lehner and he will get a good shot with Buffalo. And getting a first rounder for Ottawa is solid.
    Guess that means Buffalo likely won't be getting O'Reilly. I might have preferred Buffalo get Talbot instead, too. Use the early second rounder to get Talbot and still have the 21st to try for O'Reilly or just use might have been better. Not a bad move, though, just something of an overpayment since Legwand isn't really worth anything.

    Jeff O'Neil just made a good point on the radio about how hard it is to draft 18 year olds and trying to guess how good they will be in their career or even what type of player they will be. He said when he was drafted he was drafted as a playmaking pass first centre, then he said when he was in his prime in his mid 20's he was a shoot first winger for the Canes.

    Seems bad for Buffalo, probably coulda gotten Talbot or Lack instead for 21 and both of them are better than Lehner.

    Yeah, feels like Buffalo got the horrible end of this deal.

    Yet again, the 1st round draft pick takes another hit in value.

    I don't think any of the goalies being talked about in trades are worth a 1st, Lehner as well. Ottawa made out great.

    I don't think it's bad for either side. Lehner could still pan out (he's young and was always highly thought of) and Legwand brings a veteran presence and helps Buffalo get to the cap floor. Buys time for Reinhart as well.

    Yes, I agree it's a bit of an overpayment. Still, I have to believe T. Murray knows what he was doing here considering how familiar he must be with Lehner...

    Sounds like CGY is close to getting Hamilton from Boston.

    All picks for Hamilton. Maybe they`ll swap picks for Kessel now to complete the circle

    Apparently only draft picks going the other way. Strange trade for Boston.

    I think Boston wants to move in the 3rd spot.

    My thoughts exactly! Burke knows he's available. Monahan?

    That's a bargain for Calgary.

    EDIT: Well, maybe not as much of a bargain as I thought. The offer sheet compensation would likely have been a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I suppose 3rd -> 2nd is a decent premium to pay to ensure you don't have to compete with other bids, though.

    Boston was likely resigned that they were going to lose him to an offer sheet since they weren't going to have the cap room for him.

    Yeah not sure why they gave up on him when Chara is on the decline.

    The Bruins have given up arguably two of the best young players (at their positions) in the league in the last two years.

    Both of whom were prizes from the Kessel trade.

    What's Boston thinking!! If Lehner was worth a 1st, Hamilton should've been worth a fucking blow job and 3 firsts.

    From no significant source at all, I'm hearing Lucic to the Habs?! WTF? Any validity at all or is my friend simply misinformed?

    That really does just seem to exist in the realm of "not possible" but the NHL is a business so you never know. Everyone on Montreal hates Lucic so bad though. I doubt its true.

    There must be a significant contract going the other way. LA doesn't have much cap space either.

    Sounds like Boston will get a 1st from LA in part of the package. I really think Boston wants the 3rd pick. They would have picks 13, 14 and 15 with this trade.
