Also, I really like Bouchard and when he is D1 in EDM soon you will see why I traded to get him.
    Personally, if that's how you felt, then in once sense you made the right move. but looking at the larger picture, with the hype on Thomas - you could have gotten more than a 1-1. You could have gotten a second pick.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    This assumes that 'being Russian' is the causal factor.

    I agree. If you value Bouchard and think he's a good fit in Edmonton, then it's natural that you would target him. His shortcomings are more than enough to scare me away which is why I didn't have him as highly valued. But, as Lucafen notes, given the hype around Thomas you may have tried to get something else in addition to the #7 pick.

    Just flipped Hayton for Sam Steel straight up. How's that for a Thomas replacement?
