    Kelly WHOOOO!!!!?????: Got to be kidding!

    only 13pts and a -3 in 36 career playoff games, and thats your replacement?

    I find it EXTREMELY hard to believe that with a boat-load of draft-picks/prospects and expendable roster players this was the best Chiarelli could of done??? Pathetic! They held the cards, ball in their court and they missed.

    So, they trade for a Two-Way player, defensive minded nontheless. Where's the super star we all hoped to see? Darn it!

    Let's not hold our breaths for the next move. For all i know, we're getting back Andrew Alberts from Vanc for Wheeler....What a JOKE!

    Still need that elusive puck-moving D and a solid wing to replace Wheeler.

    Yep.  Got to think that a deal like this makes one of the B's forwards (my guess Wheeler) expendable.

    Alberts is on the injured list :P

    Serriously, this was underwhelming, and wasnt what we all expected or hoped for either.  PC's got 12 days to make something happen, but history shows he's not a real "big splash" kinda guy.  Remember last year his fix for our scoring woes was signing Miro Satan.  well, here's hoping he makes some significant roster upgrades

    Great stuff PC just terrific, B's are cup favorites now. Not only does he make the most insignificant trade in the NHL yet this season, but he then tells everyone not to expect a "home run" or "grand slam". Is it just me or does this guy have no b*lls?

    none whatsoever or maybe just one. He hasn't pull off one big trade yet. 

    Can't consider the Kessel trade a big one because he had no choice and nobody knew Toronto would be as bad as they were last year

    Next trade will be maybe for Sheldon Souray?

    Ott top 6 player, 4th liner in Bos, cannot replace Wheeler or Camp.

    His mins will be shortened in Bos, only better than Thorn and Pail, but his PK is topknotch.

    Can he really hurt at this point? I don't think so. No, he isn't a big time name or player, but you know what, he will probably be excited to be going to a playoff team and will play hard. Maybe that will rub off on some of the other guys

    Maybe we can send Andrew Ference to Vancouver. They have 4 or 5 defensemen hurt. Maybe they'll take him off our hands

    Who are you kidding, Yaz?  Anyone who follows the NHL KNEW the Leafs would finish among the bottom 5 clubs last year.  Yes, PC gets credit for that deal.

    I take it you're not serious about the fragile Souray.  Saw him play in Manchester last week, he was a non-factor for Hershey.  He played as if he was trying to avoid getting hurt prior to the trade deadline.  No thanks.

    Re: Kelly WHOOOO!!!!?????: Got to be kidding!

    Kelly's not a bad player.  Like Tim Taylor, he's not a big scorer, but he scores pretty consistently for a guy who plays primarily a shut-down role.  He doesn't have Wheeler's 20+ goal "potential", but he's a better forechecker, a better defensive player, and better on faceoffs.

    Seriously, though - the crying that this wasn't a trade for a big name is telling.  It sounds like some people want a pacifier not a better hockey team.  Like 13 year olds pissing all over their new iPod because what they really wanted was a new Playstation 3.  This thread, more than any other, reinforces my dislike of the e-harmony "let's get this guy, he's faaaaaabulous" trade speculation.

    Im guessing that after dropping 3straight PC thought he had to shake things up right away. One thing is for sure Kelly will work hard every night not something that many of the teams current forwards are known for.

    Wasnt a second round pick a little steep and doesnt that now NOT preclude another trade as that would have been included along with hopefully our 1st Round pick for that mythical bigger fish acquisition?!?

    Re: Kelly WHOOOO!!!!?????: Got to be kidding!

    This trade makes sense. Kelly is battle tested and Seguin/Hamill/Wheeler are not qualified for playing in the playoffs as a third line center. Kelly is more skilled and more versatile than Gregory Campbell too. It's not the puck moving D-man but it's not the worst trade either.

    I saw Kelly play a few times with Binghamton in the AHL. Ottawa has had a bunch of similar players (Foligno, Winchester, Peter Regin, Zack Smith) come through their system in recent years. None have played with the mix of offensive game and defensive smarts as Kelly. 

    This doesn't bode well for either Ryder or Wheeler this year. My bet is that one of them goes by the deadline.

    You just keep me laughing.

    Ott was short for Ottawa where Kelly came from, he was getting top 6 mins and will not get it here.

    Steve Ott though, is a sickening thug, but he is far better than Thorn, any day of the week.

    Total joke, Kelly is a 4th liner here and nothing more, he cannot replace Wheeler or Ryder numbers, he may be par with Campbell but, in no way is he better, may  not even be better than Pail.  Give Pail his mins and donèt make him play with Thorn and his numbers will be as good, and he is 4 years younger and far faster.
