The strangeness continues in Flamesland today. Just coming down on the Twitterwire right now is news that the Flames have traded journeyman AHLer Jason Jaffray to the Anaheim Ducks for former first rounder Logan MacMillan. While that sounds impressive, the truth is MacMillan’s stock has fallen significantly since he was selected 19th overall in 2007.
He wrestled with injuries for the remainder of junior career and has yet to see an NHL game. In fact, MacMillan spent most of the season in the ECHL last year, before being loaned to the injury plagued Abbotsford Heat (where he scored nary a point).
A 6’1", 205 pound left winger, MacMillan is just more depth for the farm. Frankly I don’t see much sense in the move, although Logan is much younger than Jaffray and may have a higher ceiling.
