Just announced. Charles Wells and Seattle's 1st round Bantam selection in the 2011 draft to Prince Albert for defenseman Ryan Button.
Button is a great addition... but I have to seriously question whether trading Wells AND a 1st round pick was worth it.
Button is a 19 year old and is not a sure bet to return to Seattle next season. As best as I can tell he has not been signed by Boston so maybe Russ has been given some assurance that even if Boston were to sign him they would likely send him back to Seattle.
Wow... seems like a high price but at least we got a very good player in return.
Whoops... I'm an idiot as usual. Seattle trades Wells and their 1st round IMPORT selection to Prince Albert for Button.
That deal makes a lot more sense and Seattle was not going to draft any Imports next season. Thanks to Kodi for pointing out my mistake.
