I was never a fan of that trade, it was common knowledge that Stuart was most likely going to leave the following the year, and we didn't have money to overpay him to make him stay. Way too way high of a price to pay for a rental. Sutter did do well getting assets for Primeau however, and then he flushed them down the toilet trading away Stralman.

If you break it down, we gave up Kobasew and Ference for 2 months of Stuart (and we were not a contender back then, I also think that makes a difference) and Primeau. Kobasew and Ference are not allstars, but we could of got way more than we did for those 2 guys in a package.
