But at the same time we cannot just go back and magically say yeah we should have traded Komo, Koivu, and Kovalev, just because it makes sense now, because it sure as **** didn't make sense then.
But again you need to identify your important players like he did with Komisarek saying he was priority,what priority he waited until late June to try and work out a deal.Earlier in the year Komisarek was hurt and missed a bunch of games, I'm sure there was time to work out a deal.
