Kappy gone for the 15th overall and hallinder

I'd say it's a decent trade save on the cap hit my worry tho is how much PK Subbans name keeps coming up with the leafs

I think Braden Schneider With the 15th would be a good pick up.

I'm a little surprised at how fast this deal went through after both teams just being eliminated. I guess Dubas was really unhappy with Kapanen's performance this year.

Unless Dubas has another trade he is urgently trying to push through, then there was no rush to trade Kapanen for a pick.

The pressure is on both these GM's now. I see this as an act of desperation from both sides. Dubas trying to recoup his losses on the Marleau trade, and Pittsburgh just desperate to try anything new before it's too late for Crosby and Malkin to win again.

Only hokeyloser would see this as a bad move
He was expecting kapanen bracco for Mcdavid with oilers retaining 50 percent.

I will second the motion for drafting Schneider as well.

We only save about $1M on the cap hit. Maybe less.
Depends on what Rodrigues re-signs for. So this trade was not about saving cap. It was about unloading Kapanen and recovering our 1st.

Hokeyloser we don’t have to qualify the guy.

Don’t think it was a quick-draw type of move. I believe there’s been issues with Kapanen (in house) for a while nowand Dubas merely took an opportunity to unload him. For a centre and a mid first rounder to boot! Not bad, not great. Definitely a needed (yet small) salary release valve though.

I didn't say it was a bad move. I said it was a move made in desperation.
