Talk about return on investment…
The Anaheim Ducks made 3 interesting moves today. First they sent Stanislav Chistov to the Bruins for a 3rd round pick. No big deal there. The second move was to trade Todd Fedoruk to the Flyers for a 4th round pick. What’s interesting here is that the Ducks traded a second round pick to the Flyers for Fedoruk prior to last season. Not a good investment there.
But the real interesting deal was the Ducks trading a second round pick to the Avalanche for George Parros. What is interesting here is that just 6 weeks or so ago the Avalanche picked up Parros off waivers from Los Angeles. So over the course of 6 weeks the Avalanche turned a waiver claim into a second round pick. That is a pretty good return on investment for the Avalanche. Makes you wonder what Parros did during that time. Well, he played 2 games, got zero points and was a -1 with 0 PIMs. My only comment is wow, what were the Ducks thinking.
Oh, as a related note that Eklund guy had this headline on his blog this morning “The First MAJOR Move to be Made? Look To Colorado”. Does this classify as a major move?
