I have no idea myself at this point but it seems like Holm's return was better than Vanek's?  That does puzzle me if it's true. :blink:

Like this trade not so high on the Vanek return yet but maybe Motte turns out just as good or better?

I don't know much about Motte, but yes, Leipsic is the bigger return in my opinion.  I would have been happy with Leipsic for Vanek.

I personally like Tyler Motte and I think people here should give these guys a chance before immediately writing them off lol.

He's definitely further along than any guy we'd draft in the third round or whatever the complainers wanted.

He is a heart and soul kinda player, and a Canadian.  Win, win, Winnipeg.

Lmao, this kid is feisty

Doing that at 5'10" reminds me of Cooke when he was a Canuck. Let's hope he can keep it clean like Cooke did as a Canuck (not after he was a Canuck, obviously).

Got 120 points on the Portland Winterhawks under Travis Green.  Same year they won the championship. Pouilliot was a point-per-game D-man as well that year in the regular season and the playoffs.  Maybe they know how to read each other...

That hit was unbelievable for a guy of 5' 10" even in Junior.

Lol I remember years ago the Blazers enforcer kept doing this to the cougars goalie. So according to legend(my former teammate that played there) in intermission they pissed in a spare water bottle and put it on their goalies net. 

 

 Someone quit drinking the goalies water after that :lol:

Glad to have him.  He was lighting it up in Vegas before he got hurt early in the year.

 

A bit of a trend of Benning bailing on D prospects early on is starting to develop though.

Holm is 26...

I'm talking more about not even playing them in the NHL before trading them.

Ah, gotcha. I will give you that, then.

He had Holm for a year and since the surprise availability of Pouliot, Holm was outside the top 8 so not likely to get games.  They knew what they had after this long in the AHL and clearly felt that he wasn't a fit and still behind Hutton and Pouliot. 

 

If that's the case, the right thing to do was to give him a shot elsewhere.  I really think that he played the Vegas game so that Vegas could get a good look at him.  I guess he passed the audition.
