Meh, Connauton, who cares. He's never going anywhere in our system anyway. The second is too much IMO, unless he fits in here and MG can work the magic on him and sign him for a lot less than the $6+ mil a year he's reportedly looking for.
Funny to see kind of. MG finally cracks after the media abuse and gets us the rental he hates doing. I don't think he could stand the criticism on taking 2 years to find a center and had to do something.
I like the guy as a player though so I'll be happy to see him play at least. He's feisty, he can pass, and plays with a bit of grit. All things we needed.He might even get a game or two in at second line center until Kes is back.
Great trade, thank you gillis for getting what we needed without giving up a 1st in a deep draft
Yeah, at least we keep the first and we might even get a second or another first back in the Lou trade.
