Calder for Williams. Like it?

By now you know Kenny Holland has made his first move of the final 24, moving Jason Williams to Chicago, getting Kyle Calder from Philly in the process.  I need a bit to digest this one, so I’ll have something more later tonite.  I do think this is the tip of the Holland iceberg though.  I think at least one more deal’s in store, of a bigger variety.

In the meantime, did you like Williams’ quotes on his way out?

Williams was also happy about the move, “I’m definitely excited about coming to Chicago.”

“Any time you can be a part of an original six team it’s special. Chicago is making strides in the right direction. I’m looking forward to coming to Chicago and in being a major factor on the team. I’m happy to be going to a team that wants me and I’m looking forward to helping the Blackhawks,” said Williams.

Diplomatic? Yes.  Genuinely happy?  Perhaps.  The line that caught me was this one:  “I’m happy to be going to a team that wants me…”

We’ll get into that more later.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
