Blades Trade with Raiders...... Injuries

The team has acquired goaltender Steven Stanford from Prince Albert along with a 6th round selection in the 2011 bantam draft and the Raiders receive two defencemen Brendan Wall, Tyler Yaworski and a 4th round pick in the 2011 draft..

People are already saying the Blades were ripped off,but hold the phone...Stanford is good insurance if Morrison becomes injured,the Blades send 2 defencemen to a team where they will see ice-time...the Blades have enough rearguards as is now. I guess this means Chris Sharkey will be demoted...too bad because it looked like he worked VERY hard to stick with the Blades.

Now this has me thinking will Steven Stanford start on wednesday night?

On the injury front two 16 year old defencemen are out....Duncan Siemens with a neck injury and Dalton Thrower has the flu... Also Charles Inglis is expected to be ready to go by mid October, according to the sports section in today's Star Phoenix.
