This may be Brian Burke's worst trade. I am not completely sure of his history but this is ridiculous, and personally I don't believe it one bit.

Let's compare the two shall we:

Performance:

Doug Weight: 11 points, only on pace for 31 points in the whole season!
Andy McDonald: Only 16 points, and only on pace for 40 but it is still an improvement.

Age:

Doug Weight: 36 years old, and this could most definitely be his last season in the NHL.
Andy McDonald: 29 years old, and still has plenty of years to go, plus, he is hitting his prime.

Contract:

Doug Weight: Is making $3.5 million this year, and then to cap it all off, he is a free agent next year even if he does continue to play!
Andy McDonald: Is making $3.33 million this year and next.

Now sure, next year they will shave off some salary to re-sign Perry, but this won't help them bring back Scott Niedermayer one bit.

Burke, you suck!
