OUTS: Sam Gagner (Philadelphia Flyers)
The Pronger trade. Hmmmm. I guess they pick up Grossmann, who will help them defensively and trade away a player whom they were going to buy out of his contract anyways, so it’s always a good trade in that sense. Dylan Strome will be the future star C of the franchise, but they may not be until three years from time. On the rebuild, but didn’t really do any harm. Besides Chris Pronger.
2015 DRAFT RATING: B-
