I agree it's a good trade, one of those that could, over time, work out well for both sides. If the neg lister ends up in a TiCat uniform, the Cats may have got the best of the deal even though SSK gets a 30 game CFL vet. While HAM didn't pick in either the 3rd or 4th rounds of this year's draft, I looked back at the previous 3 years to compare what we got in the 3rd rounds vs. the 4th rounds:
2013 - Primé 3rd, LeMarquand 4th
2012 - Gascon-Nadon 3rd, Charbonneau-Campeau 4th
2011 - Fortin 3rd, Patrick Jean-Mary 4th
The 3 third rounders are all TiCats today and 2 of the fourth round selections didn't make it in the CFL. This trade should work out better for HAM than the Charbonneau-Campeau to Calgary for Spencer Armstrong deal this past off-season.
