Twitter reaction: Bruins deal Hamilton to Flames

With a history of rushing players from junior, the Toronto Maple Leafs may have to take a different approach with the newest additions to their roster.

Yes, Brian Burke ended up landing Dougie Hamilton after all.

Mere hours before the Edmonton Oilers announce their forward of the future, it is that other Alberta club stealing the hockey headlines.

The Calgary Flames acquired defenceman Dougie Hamilton from the Boston Bruins Friday in exchange for Calgary’s 2015 first-round pick (15th overall) and two second-round picks (45th overall and 52nd overall).

Hamilton, who becomes a restricted free agent on July 1, is expected to be a solid No. 1 blueliner for years to come.

Twitter reacted accordingly.
