    you are basically giving Murray away for nothing, while getting killed on a Gaudreau trade.

    I wouldn't want Gaudreau on this team. They don't need a 5 foot nothing winger.

    This whole thing is basically killing the near future of this team.
    I think at this point Hallander, Poulin, and Légaré are untouchable. When this team wants to stretch out the Crosby Era past 33, those are going to be the guys doing it.

    Decent prospects, nothing earth shattering but Poulin is definitely on the higher end. The picks are pretty meh.

    Is Murray going to bounce back from his concussion problems, he's really slipped the last couple of seasons since ousting MAF.

    Also, what is the deal with Bjugstadt? I remember a few years ago he was thought of as untouchable, anything there worth salvaging?

    Pretty risky trading Gaudreau for this package, if Murray continues his downward trend the Flames will look awfully silly while Gaudreau is lighting it up on Sid or Geno's wing.

    Bjugstad has been injured for the year he was with the pens. He just needs to stay healthy.
    Murray should bounce back. goalies usually hit their prime around 25-28.

    Well you basically traded the whole forward prospects group, but I think that’s what it will take to get Gaidreau. My concern with him is that he’s not a big game performer.
