Why because they got a 7.5 million dollar player with 9 goals, f'ing cleary has 1 less than him

That is a fools way to look at things. Gaborik has scored more than 40 goals in three seasons, including last season. Wings missed out big. Look at the UFA list for next season, how are the wings going to get a top 6 forward now?

Boo to all these teams for "trading away the future" in order to improve now. What a bunch of suckers these guys are. They all need to take a lesson from Holland and do the only reasonable thing, stand pat with an aging team that hasn't been competitive since 2009. Stand pat, it's the wave of the future.

Geeez, this Gaborik trade makes no sense. Why did the Rangers throw away a guy that scored 41 goals just last year? I know he's not doing great this year, but he could easily get hot at anytime and they're still battling for a playoff spot. And why did they get virtually nothing in return? I mean, its like they felt bad for stealing Nash, so they evened out that trade by giving them Gaborik.

at least make a bid for Stafford, a 2nd rounder maybe even a 3rd could do it

Everyone knows that games are played in the future, not the present!

Did everyone looking for a playoff spot get better except the obvious? Amazing. Good job Holland, get that 9am tee time in, you deserve it.

I'm assuming this means that Holland and Flip are close to a deal?

Comeau cost the Flames nothing at all they got him off waivers, and Columbus is just filling the roster spots vacated in the Gaborik trade. This is easily the best deal Feaster made this year.

I actually think the Gabby trade could hurt Columbus more than help it, they were coming along nicely and they lost a lot of depth for a guy with 1 more goal than Dan Cleary.

No way. Comeau is a better, young asset to keep on the team (that Feaster just traded the soul of) than getting a 5th that will almost surely never pan out.

Gaborik means the world as a means of exciting the fan base. When the going gets tough, star players are leaned on. Say what you will but if the Blue Jackets make the playoffs...they'll probably be happy they have Gaborik instead of Brassard.

They better be. If we lose him for nothing to UFA holland deserves to be fired

Yeah Dorsett was the heart of their team. It wouldn't be quite like us losing Helm, but close. And Brassard/Moore is like us losing Filpulla signed to a 3 million deal for a another year, and Brendan Smith.

Not saying I wouldn't do it, but we all saw what happened to New York when they lost the heart and soul aspect and loaded up no high end talent. You need good depth players.

And Minnesota gave up the equivalent of Mrazek, Jarnkrok for Pominville. It's a risky trade.

I don't know how I feel. Slighty disappointed, but the more I think about it it's not as bad as it seems to me.

If I'm not mistaken you're suggesting that losing in the second round of the playoffs is some sort of accomplishment. Well pin a rose on your nose.
