I see Calder and Williams as fairly interchangeable players. If I'm Chicago, I'd rather have Williams than Calder though. I love the way Philly has built a formidable blue line in days. I'm starting to really like their team. If they can move Sanderson or Hatcher tomorrow, I will become a part-time Flyers fan. Pitkanen, Picard, Coburn, Parent, Kukkonen. All under 25 (?). Looking excellent. I think Detroit gets the short end of the stick on this deal, as Williams and Calder seem interchangable to me, and Calder is the oldest player involved. He might fit in in hockey town a little better than Williams though. Fairly even deal. Philly wins it, because Chicago's 3rd will be high in the third.

Not many in Detroit are sad to see Williams go. Might be a nice guy and all with a lot of potential in shoot outs, but ever since his collision earlier this year, he hasn't been his old self. He was tentative in a lot of situations and became a nonfactor as the season wore on.

Not sure what to expect of Calder, but at the worst case scenario, Calder can't be any worse than Williams.

I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor over the Bertuzzi deal to the Red Wings.
