The Tigers will receive a 2nd round pick in 2016.
Well I was a bit shocked when I heard the news, but after I saw the 2nd round pick coming back it settled my nerves.....but leaves me wondering what Regina is doing. The deadline is 8 days away, and they may not make the playoffs this year. Spending a 2nd on a one year overager doesn't make good long term sense unless they plan to achieve a first round potential Home-Ice playoff type of season.
I am ecstatic that the Tigers could get a 2nd round pick, and IMO the Leier/Doty debate was pretty close. So if the Tigers could get a 2nd round pick it makes a lot of sense. The Tigers essentially had 7 players who could play in the top 6 in Shinkaruk, Valk, Cox, Koules, McVeigh, Sanford, Leier. With trading Leier it solves that.
I wish the best of Luck to Leier in Regina he will instantly make that team a lot better.
