There have been a few trades, signing and waivings, etc. that have left fans thinking and scratching their heads.
What are some moments that have left you in disbelief?
Here are a few:
RFA Clarke MacArthur and Atlanta go to arbitration where the arbitrator rules in favour of a $2.4M/1-yr contract for MacArthur, in which Atlanta walks away from. Macarthur is then signed by the Maple Leafs to a $1.1M/1-yr deal. At the time, people were mocking the Leafs for the signing - about 8 months later, MacArthur has 18g and 46pts. Who looks the fool now?
How about the Canucks trading Michael Grabner in June to the Panthers as part of the Keith Ballard deal. Less than 4 months later Grabner is waived by the Panthers and picked up by the Islanders. He now has 25g and 36 points.
