Regardless, that seems like a steal at his age.
Meh, I'm only telling a half-truth...so I'm not sure how great it actually was...
Derailing a fairly uninteresting thread with, "this was the deal"
8/23/12 - Traded Pavel Datsyuk, Niklas Backstrom, Tim Connolly and Chris Brown to Vancouver for Ilya Kovalchuk, Martin Hanzal, David Ullstrom, Tomas Vokoun, Jonas Gustavsson and a 2013 5th round pick (HFD)
I identified Ullstrom as a talent, Backstrom is old and I needed PIMs from Hanzal.
Later Gustavsson was packaged up (after I realized how bad the Wings were without Lidstrom) to get Kari Lehtonen.
2/8/13 - Traded Jimmy Howard, Jonas Gustavsson, Derek Stepan and Philip Larsen to Atlanta for Kari Lehtonen, Richard Bachman, Cody Eakin and Roman Josi
Hurts to give up Stepan and I really like Larsen, but he's getting scratched for some reason...so...the guy gave me the choice for that spot currently occupied by Larsen:
He says, "Damien Brunner or Pascal Dupuis"
I said: "Guillaume Latendresse or nothing"
He says "Philip Larsen or Marcus Foligno"
I said: "Larsen, kthxbye"
I think I did alright...but really, I don't even care about winning or losing...I just want to root for players that I like instead of begrudgingly accepting Detroit Red Wings wins as positives...F(orget) that...
