Stuart, Primeau, draft pick for Ference and Kobasew.

Wow, pretty good deal for calgary, they seem pretty serious about making a cup run this year.

Boston gets ripped off huge, don't know what they're thinkin.

Wow. What a deal for Calgary.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Really good deal for the Flames. What the hell was Boston thinking? How did they think this deal was even fair?

The only upside that I see for Boston is Ference is signed through 09-10 and Kobasew has another year left on his current deal then he's restricted.

Primeau and Stuart are both UFA's.

witt got a first last year, but boston can't even get a high draft pick/good young player and they even threw in primeau.

So, looking back the Bruins traded Joe Thornton for Kobasew, Ference, and Sturm.

Oh, in that case I meant the Bruins traded Thornton for Kobasew, Ference, and Lilja.

All these trades going on for a big playoff run makes me think that the Wings need to do something SOON and it better be huge.

All I've heard about Kobasew for the past five years is that he's going to be a star. If that's the case, how is this a bad deal for Boston?

At worst, they pick up a solid defenseman and a good young forward for a couple years in exchange for two guys they had no guarantee of keeping after April--and probably have an equal chance of signing this summer as they did before the trade.

Looks pretty win for Calgary.

This isnt as great a deal as many think it is. Brad Stuart is the most talked about soon to be UFA defenseman right now next to Souray. Hell command big bucks and will likely test the market. Ference is a solid defenseman with a few good years left on his contract. Kobasew, although not doin too well this year, is still a solid young guy.

Not a bad trade for Boston

Looks like Boston will continue their tradition of not re-signing UFA:s. Sturm should be next.
