It was obvious that new young players such as Prucha, Lundqvist, Staal, and others that would be acquired through the draft or during the Great Purge of 04' would be the right move. This had to be one of Sather's best moves as GM. We say right now we can't win with old veteren's that were past there prime. That included Brian Leetch. Now, in term's of PR, Sather made himmself public enemy #1. But, was it the right move. Unfortuntly, yes.
That move did not turn out to be that great.

And Prucha, Lundqvist and Staal really didn't exist when the trade was made.
