    By my calculations we gained
    Markus Phillips, Mackenzie Entwhistle, Pavel Gogolev

    we gave up
    Ryan Merkley, Tag Bertuzzi, Mason Primeau and a 3rd round pick

    I feel we got better this year w/o giving up our future- time will tell

    We gained 3 excellent hockey players (two from Team Canada), and became Cancer free!

    You had a good offense and improved, just got better on defence but what are you going to do about your goaltending. Popovich is a good goalie but you need more than good to advance through the playoffs.

    Popovich has been a much better goalie than the defense in front of him.

    Now that the defense has improved he will be an even better goalie.

    I will be disappointed if the Storm stop here.

    One big splash or two medium splashes away from being the outright favourite.

    Some proof or insider info would be good to back up this statement.

    Exactly. You're going for it now, you're in it, now go and win it.

    It's been awhile. First time since winning back with Fabbri that we have a legitimate shot at the J.Ross.

    Does anyone see a part 2 to the Mason Primeau trade to North Bay, or was that just one and done?

    Brazeau would be interesting... there's a bigger need on RD though. Currently there is only one right shot (Lalonde), that is a concern. My hope is Suzuki/Durzi. If UPL were available that would be interesting.

    UPL would cost a lot.

    They only reality I see happening is if OS are big on Chayka. Durzi/Suzuki for Chayka+++ or Hillis/Woolley 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 4th.

    Yes, and yes. GB has shown that he is not afraid to spend... I doubt we keep Chayka post-Hakon deadline. Those deals would make the most sense.

    Must be some kind of record today, Guelph gave up potentially 15 draft picks. Hope the fans have patience in the years to come.

    That's what happens when you pick up two WJC players and still have your 2018 1st rounder...

    Not worried. Any 2019 draft picks given up may not be a big deal as it is reported that it will be a very weak draft year anyways. Future years can be recouped through moving players next year leading up to and at the deadline, something that was not done after 2014, and led to a considerable delay in the retool/reload. Draft picks are currency, especially these days - you can’t play draft picks, only hope for the best with what you have in your pocket when it comes time to cash them in. Good asset management will get your pockets filled back up in good time.

    We haven’t really seen George work the asset management end of things given how short a time he’s been here - so far, I like what I see with him as a GM. Now coach, that’s another discussion.

    Don’t worry about patience.
    Fans just went thru 7 years of Mike Grandpa Kelly running the team. His bad drafting, trades and lack of trades. I think Curious George is doing just fine.

    As critical as I am I think George did real well today. He obviously did better than MM in Kitchener

    Different trajectories this year. There’s still 5 days ahead until the deadline on Thursday - more movement all over the league should be expected. I agree with you though - Trader George did well. Now let’s see how he plays it out with his coach hat on.
