There'd better be more to this than a goalie and a center that can't score.

This is something to note. There is no "official" confirmation so it could fall through.

Matt Hackett:


http://www.hockeysfu...atthew_hackett/


Johan Larsson:

http://www.hockeysfu.../johan_larsson/

ideally you could plug larsson into the third line center role immediately, thats a young center core but it allows porter to go to the fourth line and hecht to be waived.  I just hope a pick comes back as well.  I'm somewhat underwhelmed with this trade.  Would've liked more considering pommer has another year on his deal.

I look forward to seeing what other deal will break for us after the 3PM deadline.  We tend to sneak in a last second trade each year.

It doesn't look like the Sabres got the 2d line center--ready to step in come October--that I wanted.  I'm waiting to see confirmation of exactly everything received in return for Pommer before commenting further upon this trade.

can't say I know anything about the players coming back.  But having an additional goaltender who is on the Wild roster right now is interesting.  Could there be something else coming?

TSN says Larsson or Granlund was the Wild choice and they let Larsson go.  20 year old LW player?  

We'll see what they say.. I have no idea.

From Kris Baker:

Johan Larsson: hard working C, excellent all-around skills, thick frame, really nice offensive upside.

TSN does have it listed now.  I bet they add in more pieces eventually.

I like it.  Both guys are about 10 years younger than Pommer.  We shed a ton of salary.  Turn the page on the "core" that has gotten us nowhere.  Change the culture of the team (and the captaincy).  Find a possible replacement for Miller (next to go?), and add a really good two-way center prospect.

:)
