INS: Ryan Gropp (Pick 41, Seattle, WHL), Robin Kovacs (Pick 62, AIK, SWE-2), Sergey Zborovskiy (Pick 79, Regina, WHL), Aleksi Saarela (Pick 89, Assat, FIN), Brad Morrison (Pick 113, Prince George, WHL), Daniel Bernhardt (Pick 119, Djurgarden Jr., SWE-JR.), Adam Huska (Pick 184, Green Bay, USHL), Emerson Etem (Anaheim Ducks), Antti Raanta (Chicago Blackhawks)
OUTS: Carl Hagelin (Anaheim Ducks), Ryan Haggerty (Chicago Blackhawks), Cam Talbot (Edmonton Oilers)
Gave away the best player in the Hagelin/Etem deal and traded for Raanta to be backup for Lundqvist, after trading away Talbot to Edmonton. No first round pick and lost more in trades than gained. Not the best.
On Sunday evening, members of the facebook group, “The Flock” joined forces to discuss the fallout from the 2013 NHL entry draft.
