You just said nope, and then said what I said. We traded for that pick.

Maybe we didn't give much. Maybe so, and we stole it back. But it was a trade. If we had that pick we could have traded our assets for another pick. Some seem to basically say that since we traded for a pick back, we can subtract it from what we paid for Forsberg. Fine, as long as they make sure to include the two players then, in the trade, or their rights.

Of course, I guess if it's a prearranged gentlemen's handshake trade ("we'll do XXX after the season") it's all part of one deal. But still, some people total the pluses and minuses as if we didn't trade anything for that pick, they just say "we got it back."
