That's exactly why hindsight is a valuable tool. That's why it's criminal not to use it in sports. It's not a question of whether it was a bad trade at the time. It's not really relevant right now, is it? In hindsight, it was a bad trade. In reality, it was a bad trade. In every significant aspect to this organization and it's fan base today, it was a bad trade. In 2008 it was a gamble deemed worth taking and would require hindsight to evaluate it's consequences.

The fact that you have people slotting him 5th-7th on the depth chart of this team's D in a poorly veiled attempt to justify the trade and their support of that trade kind of speaks for itself... speaks to the credibility of this forum in general.
