@Great Dane It's about a third of a goal per playoff series (3 and a half series so far and 1.17 goals)

@Great Dane @Black_Hawk Signing Hamilton and Ranger from the Marlies means the Leafs get nothing.
@Xxxxxnew John Moore played 67 games for the Jackets last year. His playing time actually went down after the trade to the Rangers. Fourteen minutes of ice in Colombus this year and last and eleven in New York.
@T_Ry @Greg Fenton Target mid level players and/or prospects the team has soured on with picks coming back also in play. Neiderreiter, Bailey, Ullstrom and Cizakas come to mind on the Isles. Gudas and Brett Connolly from the Lightning.

@theacs1966 @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist @LN-093 @ingy56 Sorry I was wrong, Aulie did play 19:07 a game for TO not the 16:07 I said Armstrong and Aulie are next to each other on the list and I quoted Aulie as the sixteen minute guy when it was in fact Armstrong.

@theacs1966 @wendelsfist @Pent_House How about providing one where they called Kadri washed up and should have been traded?
The write up on Kadri from Hockey Prospectus Annual (advanced stats guys) and what they think,
Expected to finally break through with a full NHL season, Nazem Kadri missed the start of 2011-12 due to a knee injury. Three games into his return, the former seventh overall draft choice was sent back down to the AHL. As he proved once more with a second consecutive season of greater than 0.80 point-per-game production at the minor pro level, Kadri has the offensive wherewithal to be a contributor at the highest levels. While the Memorial Cup winning Kitchener Ranger only dressed for two games under Carlyle, it seems unfathomable that he will not be given a longer leash than under former coach Ron Wilson, who seemed to delight in discussing his defensive shortcomings. With a goal scored as valuable as a goal allowed, it would be to the new coach’s benefit to focus on what his players can do, instead of trying to focus on their weak points. As the Leafs showed amply last season, they were full of players with deficiencies, but few of them had the potential upside of Kadri.
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist @LN-093 @ingy56 Remains to be seen what Ashton will do but even if he amounts to nothing the loss of a bottom pairing defender means little.
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist @LN-093 @ingy56 NHL has them on their stats page, use the scroll down and select icetime. Sixteen minutes as a 21 year old is pretty good but getting dealt shortly after that and seeing your minutes plummet on a bad defensve team is also telling.
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist @LN-093 @ingy56 A touch over sixteen minutes a game in TO then barely eleven in TB after the trade.
@Black_Hawk @rustynail Traded 2007 first round pick (#13-Lars Eller), 2007 second round pick (#44-Aaron Palushaj), 2008 third round pick (#87-Ian Schultz) to Blues for 2007 first round pick (#9-Logan Couture) on 2007-06-22 The Leafs pick was 13
@theacs1966 @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist @LN-093 @ingy56 Aulie didn't even get thirteen minutes a game playing for a bad Tampa defense, hardly the big minutes you're talking about.
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @MattyMoe Well it was written eight years after the fact and AOL got the article from a blog. Not saying it isn't possible it worked that way but you have to compensate a team to not take a player not get compensation for them not taking that player (defeats the purpose of making the deal)

@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @MattyMoe The article doesn't state who sent whom the conditional pick but it was the 67th pick (second pick in the third round) and Atlanta had the second pick (they took Heatley in the first). Maybe the writers got it wrong and made the assumption that there was a side deal.
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @MattyMoe The third rounder was sent to the Canucks by the Thrashers who then dealt the pick to the Devils. Why would Atlanta give up the pick to not draft the player?
@theacs1966 @Jimmie Dorey @MattyMoe Doesn't make sense as the Thrashers not the Canucks coughed up the third rounder to move to the first overall slot so I don't think there was any side deal.
@theacs1966 @MattyMoe Patrik Stefan was the first choice overall by Atlanta Daniel was second and Henrik third. Burke had the first pick and traded it. T here was no deal in place to not draft the Sedins (unless it was with the first overall). Traded 1999 first round pick (#1-Patrik Stefan) to Thrashers for 1999 first round pick (#2-Daniel Sedin), 2000 conditional third round pick (#67-Max Birbraer) on 1999-06-25
@Great Dane @MaxwellHowe @canuckintheuk Giving up Hedman is GM suicide. He's their best defender and it's unrealistic to expect him in any package (unless Gardiner or Kadri were going the other way)
@Xxxxxnew So the 67 games he played for the Jackets in 2011-2012 don't count?

@canuckintheuk @Jimmie Dorey @LN-093 @Yaknowwhat I didn't start the conversation about the two players. Go back and read it from where Komarov's name was brought into the conversation.
