I like the return on this trade though, Bournival sounds like an interesting prospect and with Picard playing well this year we weren't likely to see O'Byrne play any time soon.
Not quite as huge of a loss as you make it out to be. We got Pouliot (24) for Latendresse. Palushaj (21) for D'ags. We got a pick for Chips, Sergei was just a shot at trying to sign Ellis at a decent salary, guess that failed and Ob got us a good prospect. I think overall probably the Sergei trade was the biggest question mark but it was a gamble on trying to find a backup for Price which Ellis probably wasnt up for, thats without mentioning Sergei's problems with the team.

Overall, not too bad by PG, not outstanding though but at least he didnt pick up old timers.
