\ UPDATE: GM George McPhee met the media to talk about the Brian Sutherby trade before the game. Here is some stuff from him that is not making it into my article for the paper:\

\ “We had talked about it for a long time. We knew at the end of camp we had what we thought were some good players in a penalty kill role with upside so we were going to have to make a move there.”\

\ “It only gets more expensive to make trades as the year goes on, so I think Anaheim was aggressive in stepping up with that kind of pick to do it.”\

\ “We wanted to give it some time to make sure we evaluated everyone properly, but during that time we were making calls. It is really difficult to make trades right now for a whole host of reasons.”\ — Corey Masisak
