I think Atlanta could have done a tad better, but it was a decent return for what amounts to a really, really good rental. NJ obviously got the best of the deal, but Atlanta's return wasn't bad. They got a decent prospect, another first, and a couple of decent roster players. Not bad for a team like Atlanta that needs to develop some guys through the draft in order to improve. Come summer time they'll have two first round picks and Cormier added to their prospect pool. It's a good start.
NJ is also another Cup candidate now, which sucks, but there's so many strong teams this year that it's anybody's guess as to who wins it all. Chicago, SJ, Washington, Pittsburgh, and now NJ are all great teams. Heck, even when Philly is playing to their potential (which we've seen them do) they're among the best in the East.
Only top team right now that I don't see going far is Buffalo. They rely far too much on Miller to get anywhere I think.
