We kept Tangradi and our 1st - that's just as likely to give us a keeper.

So a 4th and a 2nd for Poni - who is a proven 20 goal a year winger - and Leopold - I'd call that a deal.
No, people liked him because the kid has more than enough talent to be successful in the NHL, and he was our 2nd best wing prospect. Plus, the Leopold deal looks brutal now that the Coyotes were able to acquire Derek Morris from the Bruins for a 4th rounder in the 2011 draft. They overpaid for both players.
