Smart, Smart, Smart

Smartest Trade of 2006-07

Not best. Smartest.

The Philadelphia Flyers trade Freddy Meyers Jr. and a conditional 3rd round draft pick to the New York Islanders for Alexei Zhitnik.

Holmgren knew he had budget and Cap to spare and he knew SOMEONE at the deadline would give him more for Zhitnik than he gave up. Now, granted, the return he did get for Zhitnik was over the moon (Coburn... wtf?), but even if one calls that a fluke it was STILL a very heady trade by Holmgren who, I might think, knows a little about buy low and sell high.

Smart, smart trade.


Have a great evening everyone.
