Hey Guys doing my first ever blog and i want to know what you guys think with these trades:
To Edmonton - Keith Ballard + 3rd rounder
To Vancouver - Ales Hemsky
Both are first round draft picks Balllard 11th overall and Hemsky was 13th a year apart. Both teams need the players as for Edmonton they need the top 4 Dman and Keith Should be one mking 4.2M a season.With Kesler and Booth on the 2nd line with Hemsky would be scary to see.
To Carolina - Mason Raymond + 2nd rounder
To Vancouver - Tim Gleason
Both are helpful in ths trade because MayRay would help out Skinner and Stall by using his speed. Raymond was a 2nd round draft pick while Gleason was taken late first.Gleason would be cheaper then Ballard and still able to pair up with Rome on 3rd D pair or slot in 2 pair if Sami Salo goes down. (Knock on Wood) Maybe throw in someone like Andrew Ebbet for Ruutu to help out the fourth Line
Lines After Trades:
D.Sedin H.Sedin Burrows
Booth Kesler Hemsky
Higgins Hodgson Hanson (Triple H)
Lappy Malhotra Ruutu
Please Let me Know what you think?
