from newjerseydevils.com:

The Devils acquired the rights to center David McIntyre from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Sheldon Brookbank on Tuesday.

McIntyre, who turns 22 Wednesday, has 13 goals and 17 assists for 30 points and 42 penalty minutes in 26 games with Colgate (ECAC) this season. The 6-0, 185-lb. forward is in his third season with the Red Raiders where he has career totals of 37 goals and 42 assists for 79 points and 155 penalty minutes in 105 games. The native of Oakville, Ont. was Dallas’ fourth choice, and 138th overall selection in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Brookbank was in his second season with the Devils and appeared in 15 games this season with 25 penalty minutes. He was claimed on waivers by New Jersey from Columbus on October 2, 2007.

Perhaps a bit of a minor move, but...thoughts?

Kinda torn on this one...a quiet and odd little trade to say the least (unexpected)...we traded a guy with NHL experience for a minor leaguer??? Don't know anything about McIntyre but I'm taking this as "he must be good" if we gave up brookbanks "straight up" for him...they must have seen something in this guy...who knows??? Is he coming here or going straight to lowell???

McIntyre is a prospect who still isnt out of college yet at Colgate while Brookbank is a scrub. Inconsequential move for both teams...

Not inconsequential at all. McIntyre is quite possibly the most skilled player in the entire ECACHL. I saw him play a few times this year and he is a natural scorer, at least at the college level. He is far and away the best player on his Colgate squad and should only improve. This is the type of kid we want to develop and continue our new switch to an offensive style of play that still plays responsible D.
