And without even getting into what happened with the next trade, they almost immediately decided that they'd effed up. The very fact that we followed up that trade with another is evidence of how much of an abject **** up that deal was.
I've never seen a team do a 180 on a trade so quickly. It's almost like they hadn't watched him play hockey at the NHL level over his first 4 seasons in the NHL. It's really an admission that you had no idea what you were doing in the first place (or at least so misguided in your thinking that your credibility as a professional general manager should definitely be called into question).
