It wouldn't be nice to say, "I told you so," so let's go with, "I'm used to it." After watching or following the draft in some form other than reading the newspaper for over a decade, I've become accustomed to witnessing a couple of shocking trades (Schneider to New Jersey, Bolland to Toronto, Clutterbuck for Niederreiter), some more pedestrian swaps (Frolik to Winnipeg, Falk to the Rangers, Kennedy to San Jose, Sekera for McBain) and some re-signings or near-re-signings (Bobrovsky, it turns out, will remain with Columbus, Mike Smith will stay with Phoenix, Bryan Bickell's staying in Chicago, and, by hook or crook or more trade rumors from Pittsburgh, it sounds like Kris Letang will land a windfall while remaining with the Penguins)...
