don't get me wrong, the deal is good for us, just pointless

Fair enough. There's certainly not a whole lot to be excited about. I think I'm just happy because it signals intent. An intent to rebuild... To some degree. But... I guess I'll wait and see how free agency unfolds before I get too excited about Bergevin's moves.

I like this trade and it sgnals  rebuild but just not strong enough. I still want Price, Pacioretty and Weber traded... there are some others too, but these 3 are a must. The fanbase clearly wants a rebuild, just do it already! 

I swear I think MB could actually be a good GM if he could just get it through his thick skull that you don't pay every hand

I lurk on the forums a lot and I really value the opinions of the members here, so thanks for that.

To me, it makes perfect sense to move Price (along with the others mentioned), and I believe it actually shortens the time that the team's re-build will actually take.  I would be pleasantly surprised if Bergevin was actually thinking this way.

Armia, Picks and the ability to get even more from a subsequent goaltender move is a fantastic return for Simon Bourque.

I'm ok with this big winger 6'03" now shop mason and if no takers buy him out he'll only cost  $1,366,667 for next two years

its fine... but i don't get it. it adds to our cap next year for nothing because we clearly could have carried his hit. Its stuff like this that just makes no sense to me

About 1.4 mill for 2 years i believe somebody mentioned. Not a huge deal i guess. We'll see what they do with the big kid on RW.
