    Me too. We didn't really need Shaw in the first place.

    I have no issues with Shaw the player , but what was Nero thinking on this move . What were we a Shaw away from ?

    What is a glorified third liner going to do when your top 6 has failed in the playoffs , you add Shaw when your complete and ready to win , he totally miscued on this one .

    4 mil for what he brings to the table is nuts.

    I'm with you on this one. I don't mind Shaw either but he wasn't what this team was missing, if anything we needed those picks more than we needed Shaw.

    The only saving grace was that we managed to get a couple 2nds for Eller. But giving them up for Shaw seemed stupid. That said... at least we got a useful player out of it. Still don't like it though.

    Hawks were capped out and had to get rid of some players , a 3rd and 4rth is all we should of offered.

    Nero wanted him badly and overpaid , don't think there were many suitors for Shaw.

    I don't believe one second that a 3rd and 4th is all that was needed. There was enough demand to drive the price. If MB got that for Eller then sure it wasn't a crazy price for Shaw. I just don't think we should have been the team to pay it.

    So why go for Shaw last year and ignore Schenn and Johannsen (both top 6) this year...arguably they went for about the same price and we have the picks.

    Schenn went for 2 first round picks.

    Would LV have even taken Shaw if he was left unprotected ? Doubtful....

    According to some people here YES..... We are so lucky to have him at 4 m and deal with such a contract in next 5 years for a 3rd liner. What a privilege indeed.

    Some have said 5 years which seems silly.

    If Poehling is motivated to have an NHL career, I figure he should go two years in NCAA, then one in AHL

    I have no timeline for Ikonen though.
