He made a move for the sake of making a move and that's rule #1 of good gming as every gm says. Sometimes it's the trades you don't make. Phaneuf should have been dealt in the off-season to maximize his value.
Speak for yourself. As long as White re-signs, I'm very happy with the return of Hagman/Stajan/White. If you were a big Dion fan, I'm sorry he was traded from your favorite team but the return is certainly not godawful as you suggest.
Anyway, the Kotalik deal was brutal no matter how you look at it. You win some and lose some and Sutter clearly lost that one. If Higgins re-signs at a reasonable price, the deal looks a little better but horrible nonetheless.
