I always kinda liked Hults. I like it for Tampa. Clears a contract I guess.
This is ANA's thank you card for Dotchin lol
Scouting report on the guy? Seems to be producing ok in the AHL, his numbers don’t suggest an NHL future but I’m assuming this is a 100% Syracuse Crunch move for us (and a contract spot move for Anaheim)
Syracuse Crunch say TYVM as we need all the help we can get at this point.
Just taking Dotchin off are hands would have been enough of a thank you, the ducks are just spoiling us now.
Gotta hurts the confidence a bit being dealt for futures.
Future what? A human? A pizza?
Wasn’t there a guy traded for a bus once? At least that’s something you can see!
I'd say his best case scenario would be a Nate Thompson type checker.
Too soon to give up on future considerations. He seemed pretty solid near the end of the year.
Along with Conacher as well as Martel’s Conditioning assignment they got a lot of help today
The incredible Hults.
Haven't seen a future considerations trade in a while.
Bob Murray realized we was on pace to fall short of his 57 trades per season quota and had to start somewhere.
How the hell are future considerations ever sorted out/agreed upon?
"Hey, you buy us a new Gatorade machine"
Basically it's when the two teams decide the player to be traded isn't worth a 7th round pick or another player/contract going back the other way.
Yea, what I'm wondering too is that there's usually a clause or something attached to those future considerations.
Tom "Bussey" Martin.
Actually, there usually isn’t a clause attached to them. Future considerations aren’t allowed to be picks or players to be named later for example.
It’s more of a “Thanks for doing us a favor, we’ll keep you in mind next time we’re talking a possible trade.”
You can't be traded for a bus, it would be amazing if you could
Happened in the WHL years ago, look it up
Lol ya heard Ferarro talking about him once. Funny story.
Imagine what Melnyk would do if this was still possible!
What exactly is going on down there?
They also just added Martel and Conacher to the main roster, Tampa had 48 contracts - ie, in theory, should have depth for Syracuse, yet they still felt the need to add Hults...
They just started an affiliation with Orlando of the ECHL and said they planned on giving them 4 or 5 guys on NHL contracts. They've had a bunch of injuries and haven't sent anyone down yet so adding a body to send down or someone else. You typically don't trade for a guy just to bolster your ECHL squad but I think they want to have a good relationship with Orlando. They should've been affiliated ever since Orlando got a team back.
from nhl.com: On January 19, 1983, the Western Hockey League's Seattle Breakers dealt Martin to Victoria for a used bus and future considerations.
Was future considerations a bus driver for X hours?
It’s nothing. Literally nothing.
They call it “future considerations” because they want the recipient to consider (remember) this nice thing they did when they’re negotiating again in the future.
