The trade was fine. We got something (albeit not much) for basically nothing (at least in terms of what he brought to our team.

Now your other point is a more valid one: I do think the TM style of hockey is detrimental to a particular players performance. Frolov, as I have said before, is a classic example. He now plays almost exclusively along the boards, he rarely slashes to the net or through the circles, but that is not his fault, but rather a result of the puck possession game the coach has instilled in our team. IMHO, for the talent we have, we should have a more dynamic offense, but the trade off may be a less defensive minded team, and we all know, as long-time Kings fans, how that works out.

But just add Edward scissorhands Purcell to the ever lengthening list of players who were here and flourished once they left. I would bet that our team's list in the regard is longer than any other!
