Very scary stuff in Vancouver. From @myregularface on Twitter, Daniel Sedin got banged-up in a bad way in the Canucks' regular-season finale against Calgary on Sunday evening (the third period is underway as I file this entry)...
Here's aftermath--thus far:
Via the CBC’s Tim Wharnsby, the NHL officially announced the details of the trade which has sent Robyn Regehr and Ales Kotalik to Buffalo:
Buffalo gets Regehr, Kotalik and 2012 second-round pick from Calgary for [Chris] Butler and [Paul] Byron.
Update 11:40am: Calgary Flames release -
Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today the acquisition of defenseman Chris Butler and forward Paul Byron from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Flames defensemen Robyn Regehr, forward Ales Kotalik and Calgary’s 2nd round pick in 2012.
