to Anaheim and all we got in return was a second round draft pick in 2016.

they must have been pretty desperate to dump hi salary if they were willing to take nothing more than what will probably be a very low second round pic.

Bieksa to Ducks for 2016 2nd round pick. :(

Good for him though, he must have got some NTC tips from Kesler.

I don't even recall Ferland in the regular season, but I imagine the response to his play would be a bit different in the than in the playoffs. I'd like to think a healthy Kassian would deter him from running around like he did. That being said, his play was pretty effective against the slow Canuck defense but non existent against the quicker Ducks who put an end to it pretty quick.

I expect he'll come out hard next season and get knocked down a peg or two pretty quick.

Kassian seemed to have everything, size, speed and good hands. He showed so much potential and displayed flashes of brilliance.

He had disciplinary problems (including an arrest) going back to the OHL and as a Canuck was benched, healthy-scratched and demoted to the AHL. Mike Gillis said of him "We’ve had lots of experience at dealing with young players like this and that’s just it, he’s young.” Hopefully he can turn this around as a Hab instead of pissing away his talent and natural gifts.

I don't even recall Ferland in the regular season, but I imagine the response to his play would be a bit different in the than in the playoffs.

You can't hit people like that for 82 games a year and expect to stay healthy or have a very long career …

They gave up a 5th round pick with Kassian. I'm going to assume they were worried about his back being a recurring problem in the future.

I was hoping he was going to fill Bieska's role of entertaining media interview guy, but with less subtle humour and more crazy.
