I still like the trade... the more time passes the more I like it... we needed offensive depth and to distribute salary better.... this trade achieved all of that...

I think Hagman/Stajan/Bourque would be an excellent 2nd line... but like other posters I think we could do without the Staios and Kotalik deals...

I'm not going to jump on the Jokinen (re)signing because if you look at the UFA market for centermen there was literally only 1 centerman over 6'1 that could play 1st or 2nd line... and like it or not it was Jokinen... however I would have only signed him for1 year

but without Staios & Kotalik we would have almost $6 million to try and acquire that #1 center... which is not as easy to acquire as so many posters on here seem to think it is
