instead of a 3rd round pick, the pats traded 15 year old defensive prospect, Mason Logan. Seems like a good thing since we trade too many picks as it is.

Have you seen either Carlson or Logan play? Because I dont really know what we are getting and what we are giving up here...

I've seen both play but I can't say as to if they really stuck out in my mind. But from what I have read about Carlson he is going to be a decent pick up. A former first round pick in the bantam draft.... he sounds like he has some huge upside.

With Logan, I remember him from rookie camp and like I said before he never really stuck out but I do remember that he is a fairly swift defenceman whom I thought might have some potential (I can see him in the WHL one day). Then again I'm only a fan.

All-in-all I think that this will be a good trade for both teams. Pats got their puck-moving d-man (and veteran too) and the Tigers got to move a roster player to get some of their younger kids in the line-up.

I honestly look forward to seeing him in the line-up.
