Thanks in advance (GR is loaded, so your team will be pretty good very soon).</div></div>
I think we were both close, I said 2nd and either Rodrigue or samorukov who were both 2nd round picks, so essentially we got 2 2nds and I asked for a prospect who was a second and another second. I see how you were also close on your side, let's just say we were both close for arguments sake.
As for the return yzerman set that price and Edmonton met it, after the deadline yzerman Essentially said that AA is a prima Donna and doesn't listen to people in the locker room to help him grow his game, he also said it would be really hard to sign him in the off-season, if all of that is true then I'm surprised we got what we got for him at all.
I'm ok with it, if you look at yzerman 2nd round picks, he generally crushes it, so give him as many draft picks as you can at this point, I rather have had one of the prospects with a 2nd but I'm ok with trusting him with a full rebuild. Hope this helps with your question.
