I'm not normally this blunt, but if you're complaining about this trade you're being foolish.

Liffton is a project but he's hardly garbage. He's got a mean streak and can be a nasty stay at home defenseman.

The second round pick will be around 34ish so we moved up closer to 30 spots, not 10.

McAllister is a throw in, needed to fill the ice till next season. I mean considering the players we've turned over, we have to throw someone out there.

Essentially it comes down to Barnaby and a third for a stay at home project and and a very high second.

Keep in mind that Barnaby is also a rental. The second round pick gives them team even more flexibility for a trade {Whether it's ovechkin or adding another first rounder or even two at this point} and Liffton might turn into something, though he's gonna need more work.

And the biggest difference between Purinton and McAllister is that BigMac can actually chuck em, Purinton, for all his hype is coming off more as a pest than as a legit heavyweight.
