Background and Environment:

After we did our Deep Analysis last year, Angus has been busy.  His trades (with his comments in italics) are below:


  • Traded away Shattenkirk, Stamkos and Lehtonen for Brodeur, Chara, Liles last September. Ouch. Chara is a stud with our cats and was counting on Marty return to glory, so I would own goalie stats. Stamkos was redundant or so I thought with my strength up the middle


  • Traded away Ehrhoff and P Bergeron for Lecavalier, Raymond last October. Wanted Vinny, Ehrhoff was more valuable last season, though.


  • Traded Justin Williams for Steve Ott back in June. Love Ott with our categories


  • Traded David Rundblad for Ville Leino and Zac Dalpe's draft pick. Leino may play C and as a LW getting FOW is a huge plus. Not a huge fan of him, though. This trade may hurt. Have tons of young d-men so Rundblad was trading from position of strength.


  • Traded Brodeur, Liles for Loui Eriksson. Cutting my losses, unless Marty bounces back? Eriksson loses a bit of value with this but he is steady for other cats, young, and healthy.
