I agree he did very well but there's a BIG caveat to that "under the circumstances". Bernier is an unproven backup and the goalie market, as always, is saturated. There's always more supply than demand.LeBrun said Lombardi did very well. I think it's a little difficult to judge the trade since there was only one pick and the cap space issue.
I agree...and I won't complain.We won't really know until we see what Frattin and Scrivens do. But, IF Frattin plays top 9 and scores 15 goals and Scrivens plays 15-20 games and plays well, there can be no complaints.
No way I'd call it "great". It was fair value.I think it's a great trade for where the Kings are. They get a back up they don't have to spend anything on, a top 9 player that fits their style, a second round pick (that Lombardi loves) and enough cap space to potentially keep Scuderi.
Do you believe that if you have $500 in the bank and someone offers you a $5000 line of credit at 0% that does not have to ever repaid, that it's not of value? That's exactly what the cap space in the trade is.

Just saw Melrose say the 2nd round pick is likely one to be traded instead of used. Since its not for this year that makes a lot of sense. I could see DL using that second to fill a hole at the deadline. Then we will have to add that player into the trade.
There is no way to completely evaluate this trade. But it is clear that DL did well.
If I never use it it wasn't of any value.Do you believe that if you have $500 in the bank and someone offers you a $5000 line of credit at 0% that does not have to ever repaid, that it's not of value? That's exactly what the cap space in the trade is.
there's no way that frattin is worth a 1st round pick even a late one.
this trade is fine. i think the issue that folks might be having with this trade is that toronto didnt give up anything except depth. for fans who see the starter that jb could become, that's a tough pill to swallow. however, on this team, the kings are also only giving up depth.
and if you think that it is easy to trade a goalie and get an exceptional knock your socks off deal, then you havent been paying attention to whats been going on in vancouver.
