Trade Deadline

Recommended Posts

#NHLDucks Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray on today's deadline: "You have to go into it w/ certain goals and certain things you won't move. There was a lot of activity in a lot places. We're happy w/ what we've done. Deeper, have a veteran group."

Murray says part of his goal was for his team to get faster. With the addition of Chris Kelly and Jason Chimera, he feels the team added speed, energy and leadership.

Bob Murray said he wasn't moving his first-round pick or any other assets that he didn't want to deal at this point. Said the kind of players that went for second-round picks previously now went for firsts.

So, according to BM, the team needed MORE leadership. 

So Getzlaf, Kesler, Buechemen, Bieksa are not leaders? I don't understand Bob's thinking at all. In a game that's getting younger and faster Bob gets two 35+ players on their last legs. If he could not have gotten anything worthwhile he should have stood pat.

Only thing I can think of is that The other team reached out to Bob looking for something and Bob threw them Wags.

"We're right at the edge of being in the playoffs, and we have numerous people who have struggled. I think these guys can help us get our act together."

Seriously, dude? Shaking my damned head.

Also, Maroon's getting a warm welcome in Jersey. https://twitter.com/NJDevils/status/968248828829798401

Edit: Looked at Chimera this year and he still has speed. So maybe we don't get slower after all....

I keep getting Jason Blake analogies.

"We're right at the edge of being in the playoffs, and we have numerous people who have struggled. I think these guys can help us get our act together."

Translation: "Look, we're technically in a playoff spot right now, so I can't in good conscience sell any assets.  Who would I sell anyway?  Vermette?  Ha, like anyone wants Vermette.  On the other hand, we just took one out of four points from freaking Arizona and Edmonton.  And we got pretty lucky to get that one point.  Thankfully Edmonton's defense and goaltending is garbage.  But if we're going to get one point from those two doormats, I sure as hell am not going to spend any future assets to upgrade the team when we'll be lucky to get past the first round of the playoffs."

I see what BM did here. With the Chimera trade he laid the groundwork for a Tavares trade in the summer :lol: You know establish some bond of confidence with the isles and creating some history. It's as good as done :ph34r:
