Pronger to Philly and the rights to Bouwmeester to Calgary (leaving those teams in deeper salary cap trouble). No moves yet from the Sabres, other than the fact it looks like Jaroslav Spacek may be gone. This was one quiet draft. Hope Wednesday's free agent day gets us some real news.
As for the draft itself, Darcy Regier & Co. definitely went in a different direction to get bigger and tougher. Enough with the 5-foot-8 guys. Great to see. Have to like the Kassian pick in the first round.
Have to wonder why no centers were chosen. Have to wonder why Jochen Hecht and Henrik Tallinder are still on this roster. Gotta believe they were dangled to try to get into the second round but nothing happened.
Lots of questions, not many answers.
How do you think Regier did in the draft?
