The Avalanche shipped one of their defensive assets out of Colorado, moving defenceman Jordan Leopold to the Calgary Flames in exchange for defenceman Lawrence Nycholat, a second-round draft pick, that originally belonged to the Montreal Canadiens as part of the Alex Tanguay trade, and defence prospect Ryan Wilson.
Farewell to Leopold who did, well, nothing in his time here. This was the first season he was really healthy so I guess it's lucky we got a second rounder for him. With guys like Shattenkirk, Cumiskey, Gaunce, and Williams in the system, I only wish Brett Clark was going with him.
I'll recap the trade deadline later (although one look at TSN gives you everything)
-Calgary loaded up.
-Don't you wish we could have been part of that Columbus-Ottawa deal?
-Kyle McLaren is still in the NHL?
