Disaster. I can see trading a guy like Zherdev, Dubinsky, or maybe Callahan, Dawes, or Prucha turning out like that.
No need to worry about Zherdev. We already have seen what he is capable of. Sather traded for something he thought he could get out of NZ, and it looks like he got it. Callahan and Prucha don't have the raw skill that Savvy had.

Really, Dubi is the only one that worries me. He's got a package that seems to need time to develop.

Dawes may turn out to be a nasty sniper, like a sniper version of Savard in the way that he can be so good at shooting like Marc is passing, but its not something I would get mad at Sather for if he did indeed cut him loose. Right now, he has not shown the consistency or effort.
