If you look at my last post, I agree. I didn't think we should have traded the pick for Antropov last season and I don't think we should be giving up ANY futures this season, unless it's in a package that clears up cap and/or has a decent return that's not expiring at the end of the season. I was simply commenting on the fact that while 2nd rounders are valuable, in the right circumstances it's a fair price to pay for a rental. More of an aside about the deadline in general than approving of Sather's moves.
