It wasn't that horrible of a trade. Yes we flamed out in the playoffs, but that was hardly a result of the Forsberg trade. At the time, we had a full, healthy lineup. Soon after, we got decimated with injuries and never played the same.

Yes we didn't get our intended result (far from it actually), but you cannot blame Poile for making a deal like that. We had the talent and should have gone farther then we did. Had Poile not gone for a player, we'd all be cursing him for not making a splash. Being so conservative for so long allows you make risky moves like he did.
