Not to happy that the Pens traded Angelo Esposito, but Hossa is a big time scorer. I am more than ecstatic about the return of Foppa and Footer to the Avs, however.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Unfortunately the Vanek deal really handcuffed the Sabres front office, and will cause issues with future signings. Edmonton really screwed them there. Honestly, I think if they were able to sign vanek for a reasonable deal then Campbell would still be here.
On the bright side, they picked up Bernier who's a hell of a player. He's a big banging power forward who can score. The sabres have been looking for a player like him for years and they've finally got one. He'll thrive under Lindy Ruff. In addition, they picked up another 1st round pick from San Jose in this years draft which figures to be an extremely deep draft.
In the long run, I think that this deal will really work out in the sabres favor. The Sharks really gave up too much for a rental player IMO as I don't see campbell resigning with them this offseason. Sharks fans had better hope that they win the cup this year.

Armstrong and Christiansen are the type of talented role players that you need to win a championship. Plus they're still young.
If I were an atlanta fan, I'd be thrilled with this deal.

I think the AVS made out great. My Flyers didn't do much looks like they are getting ready for next year.

I don't mind the Hossa trade, though I would have liked to see what Esposito could do. Hope the injury isn't too serious to Hossa. Good to get Gill in there as well just for some size on defense. Scratch my back with a hacksaw.

Bernier has alot of potential but i wouldnt say that he is a player that the sabres have been looking for for years. He was an easily dispensable piece of the sharks roster that will be filled by Ryan Clowe who is just as good when he gets back. And the sharks have cleared a ton of cap room so they will be able to sign campbell if they please. But i do agree with you that the window is closing for them...but cheech is heating up and marleau is bound to soon. So look out Lord Stanley
