Heck I'd rather have kept Korpikoki has a bottom six forward, at least he could play that role.

I felt (and argued) that Lisin's one angle was his offense and even that was never enough to carry him to a top six forward spot.

In the end I was one of those who was never in love with Lisin's "potential" in the first place.
Lisin was a home run swing, in my opinion, because he's the tools with no toolbox guy. His upside was that as a good top 6 player. A 60 point guy or so. He was a second round pick because of the lack of a toolbox. Sometimes these guys learn it, sometimes these guys don't.

I was fine moving a spare part like Korpedo for him due to us having the ability to find a guy with the lack of upside of Korpedo more than to find a guy with the upside of Lisin.

Korpedo was gone after the year, anyway. At least the rumors were such.
