Some confusion there, which makes more sense. Who the heck ever thought that guy had value?

A defensively passable 40 pt puckmoving defenceman on a relatively affordable contract? Who'd want that?

Even if Carolina didn't believe in him as a starter I'm very surprised they couldn't get more than a 3rd for him.

Maybe Dundon is broke and looking to cut corners?

Rod the Bod forced him to pay the assistant coaches so now they don't get players?

Okay....

They definitely did not get good value in the deal, and the reasoning behind it is specious at best.

It's not even a Detroit 3rd its Vegas'

Yep, Dundon sure fixed Rod's wagon.  That'll learn him.

At this point how many times have we seen that? Someone buys into one of these teams and makes a big deal about spending money the first few years but then they get a rea sense of the business realities of owning the Coyotes or Panthers or Canes and we start seeing moves like this.

I'm all for laughing at bad owners but I'm not really convinced this is a budget thing. Carolina's going to have to sign a $3mil-ish goalie anyway (either Bernier or Mrazek probably). I think their hockey ops just didn't believe in Ned (which I get to a certain extent but still think they should have gotten more than a 3rd).

Prices are super weird right now. If this sets the market for a guy like Garland then Dubas absolutely needs to be all over that.

So... How are we supposed to compete with the Bruins? This is a crazy high value contract imo.
