This is a definite wait and see trade. If, and this is a big if, Justin Williams is healthy, then he is a better player than Patty O as the same stage of his career. Look at Williams numbers as a 24 year old, the same age as Patty O this year

If he returns to form, this is a great deal by Dean. If injuries continue to plague him, we rolled the dice and lost. If these three things happen, all will be forgiven.
1) Williams is healthy and returns to form.
2) A top six winger is signed in the off season.
3) Before Frolov's contract expires, he is signed to an extension that doesn't break the bank (this might be tough depending on what happens with #2).
If these things happens, next year (sound like a broken record) might finally be the break through we have been waiting for. Then it will be "All hail Dean". Only time will tell.
