Ironically, it would rival a trade of a man he replaced...Rod Brind'Amour. No one wanted to see Brind'Amour go and not many really wanted to root for Primeau considering his previous playoff record and the fact he was holding out with Carolina. When you listen to Steve Levy's clip of the 5OT winner, there are a lot of reasons why he calls Primeau "maligned." People knew the wrong guy was traded.
