I thank Toews for his service and at times can be a stud. I would have liked an actual player in return but 2 2nds isn’t terrible.

I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but Toews was borderline terrible in the playoffs. I can’t say I’m heartbroken that he’s gone. Plenty of d-men in the pipeline here.

Have to agree potvin. Toews struggled during these playoffs. Toews was far from an untouchable player.

No he made multiple glaring turnoves come around the net and a few lead directly to goals

Like the trade we got 2 2nd rd picks for a turnover machine and we can bring Greene in on a cheap 1 year deal. Sounds like Boychuck getting moved as well.

Pulock Pelch
Leddy Mayfield
Dobson Greene

Hickey 7th

Not a bad d core if this is how it breaks down and Dobson learning from Greene would be huge.

Probably cost us 1 of those 2nd rounders to move JB.

I don’t know why I can’t quote anyone, but I felt like I was calling him out like once a game the entire 2 months.

Like I said, at times he can look like an All-Star, but for the money he’s looking at, and his play in the playoffs I’m picking Pulock every day of the week and trusting Dobson. Hell even Aho looked pretty capable and that was 2 seasons ago. Plus guys like Wilde, Salo, Balduc in the system, I’m not too worked up about this.

Lamoriello said he had a "difficult conversation" with Devon Toews informing him of the trade. LL said Toews filing for arbitration and the unknown of how high an award could go spurred the move. "We did give up a good player," one the #Isles were not looking to move.

I love Twitter. Some of the comments are hilarious. You would think we traded Paul Coffey in his prime for a bag of pucks.

It sucks he’s gone but in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t a bad trade and we have his replacement already NHL ready. Sign Greene to a one-year contract. He is 9 years older than Toews and I can say with certainty that he had a much better playoffs than Toews.

Lou Lamoriello says he was surprised Josh Ho-Sang filed for arbitration.
Says there's a good chance team could re-sign Andy Greene.

Omg he made two turnovers? Let's trade him for a bag of pucks. I swear I hate being a part of this moronic fan base

Greene is 100 years old and Hickey sucks and should be playing midget hockey in Ontario

He made way more than two jackass, he's gone and 2 2nd round picks are way more than a bag of pucks, Columbus got a 5th for Murray and they arent that far apart in talent

Didja watch the playoffs? I like the guy, I’m sorry to see him go, but he was a mess the entire postseason. I don’t see how that can be argued.

I hate being part of a moronic fan base too, now that you mentioned it. Have you heard of Noah Dobson? Would you rather we traded Pulock?

We should have signed Toews to a 5/$25 million contract I guess. Because that’s what he’s getting and I’m being conservative. I just don’t think he’s that good. He’s not a top pairing defenseman and he’s not gonna be. Pulock, and trust me he had his moments in the playoffs too, is.
Won’t even mention. Toews is a liability on the PK.

Toews is probably best as a 5th dman. Toews had a bad playoffs no way around it.

All fan basis are moronic. When teams are doing interviews for a new gm they don’t encourage “knowledgeable fans” to apply.

I think you’re a bit high for Toews at 5 million. Not conservative at all imho.
I think Pulock will wind up getting that.
I thought Toews was good and did make some mistakes and if any of our dman had to go I can live with Toews being the odd man out. Dobson is ready and Green will be an affordable signing and played well for us last year.
