- he asked to be traded
- you have too much depth, and too many small forwards have come through your system when you are trying to promote size
- you needed a skilled veteran like Lang this year, not a another young player trying to make his mark when you already carry a few.

all these things factor into the decision. you can't just say it black and white. win or lose a deal. and there is always going to be regret when there is unknown upside traded away for a known commodity like a Lang. but so what. you have lots of depth and are pushing for the cup. There are sacrifices. You owe it to the rest of the team to bring Lang in, not just what you owe to Grabovski. And he gets his chance to play minutes on an NHL team. this was a good trade.
