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.
Our defense still looks like it's going to be very good and we took a chance on a 60 point forward that looked like he could've (and still could be...) produced much more at some point in his career. I don't see anything wrong with taking gambles, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Blue Jackets won this trade. You'd be surprised to see how many Blue Jackets fans don't really appreciate Tyutin either.
