Yeah, in the Handzus trade. But is there a problem between him and the Hawks or something? Otherwise I can't see why they would trade him for Williams. They probably could have gotten more out of trading Calder. Not that I care or anything, I'm just curious as to why they traded for Williams.
I guess whatever reason they traded Calder in the first place, but on paper I agree that Calder and Williams look pretty similar. I feel pretty good about this deal though.

Same here. smile.gif All in all, Calder is a better player and will want to prove himself in a competitive team like ours. If he doesn't pan out, we can let him walk in the summer and Williams wasn't getting anything done here either.

We got Calder, we gave up Williams.

I, unlike most like the trade.

Calder had 26 goals last year.

And Williams had 21 goals last year...

All in all, I don't care about this trade. Williams was warned a bunch of times to step up and he failed to. Maybe Calder can.

I believe there are more deals to come. Kenny hasn't moved any draft picks yet.

Why are you always such an ass? Just wondering.


I believe it stems from the fact that if you disagree with certain people in here then they automatically state that you know less about hockey then they do.

Does that satisfy your curiosity?
