I think Anaheim got the better deal but hard to immediately tell when picks are involved.

Why does it always seem like teams get steals when it comes to trades and we're always getting f***ed? I don't care for Kesler anyway and glad he stayed in the Western Conference.

I agree.  Anaheim didn't overpay, Vancouver didn't give Kesler away.

I would agree if the ducks gave them their 10th overall pick. But they somehow got away with giving their 24th in a weak draft. Anaheim won.

Well, for starters, Kesler only wanted to go to Anaheim or Chicago.

 

Vancouver took what they could get for him under the circumstances.

 

So part of it is that none of these guys ultimately want to play in Detroit. As painful as i may sound, would you rather live in Detroit playing for a bubble team or live in Anaheim, playing for a contender?

I completely agree. Living in California myself, Anaheim is really a top notch place to live. Still interesting they opted to trade him within their division.

Bonino had more points than kesler last year and is a few years younger, so I feel like this trade is maybe more fair than it apparently seems. Having Getzlaf and Kesler down the middle though, is probably as good a one two punch as you'll find anywhere.

None of the players do actually live downtown do they? Most of them live out in the suburbs, as far as I could tell. Still, we'll never know I guess unless Kesler comes out and says he didn't want to go to Detroit.

I wonder if the fans in Boston, LA, St. Louis, San Jose, New York, Pittsburgh, etc. are lamenting the fact that they were shunned by the legendary Ryan Kesler?

 

Since Kesler is from the Detroit area, I'm relatively sure he knows what the city and suburbs are all about.  

 

Sheesh, some Wings fans sure have a massive inferiority complex.

He told the Canuucks that he'd only accept a trade to Anaheim and Chicago. Or at least that's what reliable media sources like MacKenzie and Dreger believed to be the case.

 

So that's basically the same thing no?

Meh. Who cares anyway, it's not like we were going to get him and just because he shunned us doesn't make a difference. He can go and join the *****bag Perry and they can be bum chums together.

Probably, but at the end of the day its still a rumour. Might have been leaked by someone from Canucks management to generate a bidding war between the Hawks and Ducks?

I agree, didn't want him anyway.  I don't know why so many fans are so offended every time a player doesn't include Detroit on a list of teams to go to.  I wondered if it was exclusively a Detroit thing or if other fans of other teams get offended by it.

For fans that grew up watching a team like the one in 2002 assemble itself, it's safe to say that we're just spoiled.

 

It used to be fun being a Wings fan on July 1st and at the trade deadline, until the southern team's owners and their little bald gremlin minion got together and ruined it :lol:

Oddly enough I read an article not too long ago that stated Anaheim is one of the worst places to live. I don't remember why though, probably because all they have going for them is Disney.  This is, of course, me talking about a place I don't live based on an article I read so take that for what you will.  I have been there though, to Disney.

Okay, one year we signed two decent free agents at the end of their careers in Hull and Robitaille when there was no salary cap.    Hossa was an abberation because he signed for one year trying to win a Cup and kind of stick it to the Pens.  Outside of them, who were all these big name free agents we signed year after year every July 1?
