The logic is it creates more of a winning environment gets you a banner and probably an easier first round and maybe second round if someone is upset oh and home ice advantage

Everyone on here is only focussed on next season but it looks like management/owners want those extra playoff gates this year.
$$$ still to be had which means little to us but everything for them. I guess we’d better remember that when we start judging their moves.

I believe there is also increased compensation for a first round NHL draft pick.

The NHL pays junior clubs a developmental fee. The higher they draft the player, the more money the junior club gets.

Thomas has the third most points on our team and it's his second year. That's why the Burke's like him so much and want to give him high quality team mates that just makes sense why look for anything else more evil.

I am absolutely astonished!!!!
With kingston, hamilton losing so many players next year, it was our year to load up and go for it next year.
Now, Burke cannot go all out( now I mean all out) next year because he just gave up a 3 second round picks!!
Those second round picks would have been huge next year and should have been used next year, not this year.
He thinks we can win the division this year??
Oh my god, what is he smoking!!!!

Since everyone on here (the ones that dont like the trade) are assuming this hurts next year can I ask a question what happens if they accomplish everything they want to and still win then what will everyone complaining say? And they could easily win the division only 2 points back with a game in hand
