    He's a very conservative trader though, low risk medium reward trader

    He dealt 3 1st round picks for Ryan Smyth (He also acquired MA Bergeron and Richard Zednik that deadline helping us make the playoffs) He dealt a goalie who was playing like a top 10 at the time for a former 1st rounder. He's not afraid to deal within the 1st round. Hes dealt for top 4 defenseman Wisniewski and Visnovsky. He got Matt Moulson, PA Parenteau, and Grabner out of the rough. He traded up to get Travis Hamonic and Brock Nelson. He passed on Nikita Filatov. He got Al Montoya for a 6th round pick and Montoya was one of the best reclamation stories innthe NHL until his concussion. He stole Naboov off waivers. He has locked up Moulson, MacDonald, Nielsen, Tavares, Grabner, and Okposo to very friendly contracts.

    He has done an awesome job as GM and no one seems to realzie it

    I like what he's done but he's yet to trade an average prospect, which is ballsy

    Yes but trading de Haan/donovan +grabs/KO would get a return

    Not saying I wanna trade them though. But seriously unless grabber breaks 30 goals, okppso hits 60pta and boyes scores 35g, we will be looking at McKinnon or jones next year

    Lol @ JT91 NHL 13 rating a 85
    Moulson, last 3 seasons 30+ goals each, 82
    In comparison

    Adam Larsson 84
    Vincent lecaviler 86
    Brad Richards (66pt season) 87
    Ovi (who's season wasn't much better, if it was better than JT) 93
    Evander Kane 84
    Jeff skinner 84
    Eric staal 87
    Phill kessel 86
    Marty st Louis (who probably has 0 defense and balance ratings) 87
    Thomas plekcanic 86
    Nathan Horton 85
    Bobby Ryan 86
    Getzlef 88
    Patrick Kane (who JT is Better than in every aspect except speed) 86
    Patrick sharp 87
    Marian Hossa 89
    Matt duchene and Paul stasny 85
    Jamie benn 86
    Loui Ericsson 85
    henrik zetterberg 89
    Anze Lipitor 86
    Mikko koivu 86
    Logan couture 85
    Joe pavalski, Martin havlat 86
    Joe Thornton, Patrick marleu 88
    D seidin H sedin ( who we saw play a part of a season without the other, isn't elite) 90

    So JT91 is once again frowned upOn for being an islander. His elite offensive abilities, and god like passes and vision are surpressed, his actually a little above average defense is overlooked, and his good forechecking (which he does a lot for a skilled player, just like Crosby) is probably un-noted

    Finished 7th in league in PTs, on a team who finished bottom 3 in offensive zone time,JT placed second in pt % per team goal scored (2nd to stamkos), plays center, and made careers for career AHLers in moulson and PA

    Ouch.

    what is your point here? you said he hasnt traded an average prospect and i said thats because we wouldnt get anything so now youre talking about trading 2 of our top prospects and grabs/KO?

    De Haan and donovan may be our top prospects but league wise they're slightly above average

    They aren't like niņo/strome/rein

    Oh and Danny, we know Grabs is one of the fastest skaters in the nhl, I have a hunch ea will snub him too... Yeah he didn't do so good last year but if his speed goes down it'll be bs.
