Taking off the rose colored glasses... value wise it isn't horrible. It's just insane in a cap world to only have 1 real salary getting sent back the other way.
I disagree. Value wise it's atrocious.

Look at the returns for impending UFAs Forsberg and Hossa.

Giroux is better than any of the players dealt for those two and we're supposed to give up Carter and Parent as well? That's highway robbery. I know we have to deal someone to make cap space, but we shouldn't overpay Atlanta just do to that.

If we were to bring on a hefty contract as Kovy will command then we absolutely have to get rid of Briere's albatross contract.
