Damn. Suffice it to say I am not really happy about this trade. Let me simmer down and I'll post more later.

Huge deal though. I wonder if the fact that Langenbrunner was dating Niewy's daughter had anything to do with them getting packaged together? Just a thought.

poop.

Newy doesn't have a daughter that old does hei/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif I know Brendan Morrow is dating Guy Carbonneau's daughter.

BiteMeVscey- maybe that's what I was thinking about. In any case it was sarcasm. I am really bummed about the trade.

Although...I didn't realize the Stars got the Devils 1st round pick in addition to Arnott and the other guy so it is a little more palatable now.

They just interviewed some of the Stars players in the locker room ...they are PISSED at the trade!

You don't trade guys like Newy and Langenbruner and not have people severely hacked off.

I agree. Look at my original post. I still haven't cooled off. Stupid trade.

This may not be a popular opinion but a like this trade.

Nieuwendyk and Langenbrunner to the devils for Jason Arnott and Randy McKay...

Nieuwendyk vs. Arnott: Similar numbers over the last few years. Joe obviously better at the face off. Jason is 7 years younger though.


Langenbrunner vs McKay: I guess I would prefer Langenbrunner but frankly he has been a huge dissapointment here. Langenbrunner about 10 years younger.


1st Round Pick vs. Nothing: I will take the 1st rounder

<< They just interviewed some of the Stars players in the locker room ...they are PISSED at the trade! >>



If the Stars hadn't underachieved all year then both players would still be here as well as Hitchcock. The blame goes to the players not management.
