But, you can't exactly say that Bryan Murray struck again, as Lacroix got Sauer, who is a good stay-at-home defenseman, and a 4th round pick(though, it is in a weak draft). I'd say Anaheim won, but it was a good deal on both ends.
Agreed considering Skoula was ran out of town on a rail. He may turn into a player who needed a change of scenery or he could revert into the million dollar talent, ten cent head package that started infuriating here. Marty started out great here, but his offense became moot watching pucks going to the blue line skip past him, all those costly turnovers, turning into a turnstile for streaking forwards and not taking the body (did some this year.)

I was amazed we got the return we did.
